I agree about the traditionals. My favorites would have to be:
Sing Me Back Home-
Queen Jane

and, of course:
Morning Dew

Agree with most of what has been mentioned but would like to add a couple nobody's brought up yet.

Deep Elem Blues
Wake Up Little Susie

I heard both of these before the originals and I love em dearly.

Also gotta drop this one: Standing on the Corner. I loved how Jerry belted this one in the early days.

Why Don't we do it in the Road?!

Baba O Reily

Lucy in the Sky

Walkin the dog

All Too Much

TOO/TD Shine on you Crazy Diamond

and of course G-L-O-R-I-A!!! (even tho it was kinda in rotation)

I agree with all the great traditional covers as well, but, the dead did those (Dew, GDTRFB,MAMU, etc)so much that they really didn't seem like covers anymore. I always liked when they pulled out a new cover which they didn't already do for years in the rotation.

Morning Dew
2.Hard to Handle
3. Love light
4. Promised Land
5.Mama Tried
6.Big river
8.Baby Blue
9.She Belongs to me

I agree about the traditionals also...they made them their own also and at least taught us about those songs
I wonder what it would be to have not heard the traditional songs....Americana at its best
