Truckin>Stella Blue Among Best Covers of Grateful Dead Songs

We love Grateful Dead cover songs. We love covers of Grateful Dead Songs.  Link here to my dropbox for some great ones. You get to hear here a great Mash of Truckin>Stella Blue with the Pop O Pies and Willie Nelson doing the honors.  Of course the Pop-o-Pies are funny, but Willie nails Stella Blue. Just wait a minute and it will appear here. Stay to the end.  (try Stolen Roses too)

Of course, Blair did this on dead.net, and I love Blair. he used to trade in his New Wave releases for Japanese Vinyl of Beatles albums in 1981 at Rasputin's in Berkeley. :)

Never met Willie, but my wife's friend's wife's brother plays with Willie's son in Promise of the Real.
Do know the Pop o Pies as my friend Ben (who you can see playing with me in a bat mobile below at Sproul Plaza in Berkeley circa 1983 played in the Pop o Pies. Also Ben (with son glasses and Joe and Mark with Jerry at the Stone) but I never met Jerry.
