Furthurmore Friday Week 70

Week 70


Q: Can you name two 1970s Garcia-Hunter tunes that were played in concert at many shows in one arrangement, and then re-appeared at a later date in a much different arrangement and/or tempo? In general terms, what was the difference in arrangement between the versions?

A: They Love Each Other appeared in 1973 with a fast arrangement with a unique bridge, and then reappeared in 1976 in a much slower, bridge-less arrangement, both in concert and on Jerry's album Reflections; Friend of the Devil first appeared in a peppy arrangement as heard on American Beauty and in concert until 1974, and then returned in 1976 as a much slower song.
