That one is called "All New Minglewood Blues", a Grateful Dead title, and you probably could give Bob credit for the rearrangement and additional lyrics. The older one (pre-'79, I believe) version was called "New, New" and is pretty much a straight cover of the last version that Noah Lewis cut.

When I was young I thought the line from 'Walk in the Sunshine' was "de-sex your wristwatch'!
That puzzled me, maybe Tigerstrat gave me the influential Zappa connection I needed. :?

Later I learned what deep six referred to. Just another of the many folk sayings I first heard from the Dead.

Estimated Prophet is my current favorite.

Do we know that Bob had a part in writing it? iirc correctly its a duet vocal between Phil and Jerry, but I could easily be wrong.

Maybe its a full trio then. I don't think Bob actually sings solo lead on a GD original (other than one verse of You Don't Have To Ask) until Other One in late '67.

Walk in the Sunshine is one of Weir's greatest masterpieces. Anyone who doesn't respect the work and general meaning is LOST. We will pray for you and what's up with the gay comments- not cool. Peace out :cool:

Man, I agree. I'm sure y'all have seen the Tri studio Corrina acoustic jam. I love it. I also love the footage on the new DVD release pack. The show escapes me, it's later I wanna say early 1990's but its sick. Shake it up now!!

In the '80's the only good things I could say about Bob were:

1) Estimated
2) The Other One
3) Cassidy
4) Sugar Mag

Today I would add to my top 10:
5) Playin'
6) Mexicali
7) GSET
8) Lazy/Sup
9) Jack Straw
10) Throwing Stone or Let it Grow.

But I like most others except:
:? Looks Like Rain - Love the Jerry parts, the sappy lyrics make me want a potty break
:? Esau - Couldn't believe they pulled this at the Edgefield. Why? Does this song have a redeeming quality?
:? Corrina - Ug. :drink: Haven't suffered it since roughly ...late 80's (?) 90's (?)

Just listened to the Acoustic TRI Corrina - Ok...that is cool. Maybe it was the Technica sound from the waning Dead days.

But Bob still sang it. Bob didn't write the lyrics or music of Mama tried, Big River, etc. but they're still "Bob songs".
