I think that is on the 'Shakedown Street' cassette, last song on side one. I had 'In the Dark' cassette to, so I'm not for sure. Do you play that song a lot? It is one of those songs that could just go on and on...

hey now, guys, yup, y'all were right (well, sort of). My Brother Esau was included on the cassette version of In the Dark, NOT the CD. thanks for all the replies. peace.

p.s. i've never played MBE. it must be a fun song to play, so i guess i'll try it tomo.

There wasn't enough space on the record to put My Brother Esau or on the Cd so the Dead put it on the cassette. It was also the B side of the Touch of Gray single. By the way My Brother Esau was just released on the new remastered and expanded In the Dark Cd.

The record, correct, but there was PLENTY of space to put it on the CD.
