Grateful Dead & Friends on 03/17/12

Air date: 
Sat, 03/17/2012 - 12:00pm - 2:00pm
Short Description: 
Original versions (& GD covers) of songs written and/or first recorded by black artists.

The Grateful Dead covered dozens of songs written or first recorded by black artists. The original artists include highly recognizable musicians like Chuck Berry, Howlin' Wolf, Lightnin' Hopkins, Muddy Waters and Otis Redding and songs like Dancing in the Street, Good Lovin', Johnny B. Goode, Little Red Rooster, In the Midnight Hour and Turn on Your Lovelight.

But there's also Lemme B. Good, Noah Lewis, James 'Sugar Boy' Crawford and Blind Lemon Jefferson.

The Dead played some of these songs in this special just once, others hundreds of times. I hope you'll hear and learn something new by listening to these shows - I sure did.
