I agree that the Grateful Dead's rendition is classic, but it still could have used some cowbell.

Mother McCree's Uptown Jug Champions was an earlier incarnation of what became the Grateful Dead. It included Garcia, McKernan and Weir.

Keep up your work on early obscure musicians; it's good info.

The mere idea of imitation Dead bands crack me up. And like many superannuated groups, are their own imitation. Love listening to real Jesse Fuller tunes. And he is a good reminder of how the Dead are bearable for three minute long songs. They were okay as long as they stuck to covering country and blues numbers.
