Morning Dew - Grateful Dead

(Walk Me Out in the) Morning Dew - Grateful Dead

I've been waiting for someone to post the 1967 studio version (which I don't own), and at LONG LAST, here it is. As you might guess, the live versions can run a whole day at a time. ;)

This song opened the Human Be-In in 67, and was then recorded by the Dead two months later, on their first album. (I think the sweet, childlike hope of the times really shines through on the original.)

Bonnie Dobson wrote the song in 61 or 62. She went to see the dead in Toronto in 1967 but was too embarrassed to introduce herself to the band. Many great covers by many artists, my favorite dead version was in Las Vegas with Steve Miller.
