sugaree. robert hunter wrote this song, jerry garcia recorded it for his first solo album in 1972 and the grateful dead played this song when ever they had the chance to do so. their first recording of this song was done live on the 31st of july 1971 at the yale university in new haven (included in this collection, of course) and the last recording of this song they probably did only yesterday: for your pleasure we have compiled a short selection of versions of this composition: sugaree.
