there is something about jerry garcia’s rendition of bob dylan’s tough mama–i think it could quite possibly be my favorite song. when i listen to it, i can’t help but smile and tap my toes. dylan’s lyrics are genius–they inspire me to emulate this mysterious beauty–and garcia’s soothing voice brings a sweetness to them–captivating me for the entire 9 minutes for which it plays.
