Hard to go against G & G but I really like Nina's cover.

Let's get real for a second: you're kidding yourself if you think you'll ever get that VW Bus running again. The Wavy Gravy Train is dead. Voting for JG won't help.

Vote Nina. Those goddam drums!

Just to clarify bott, I did vote for Nina. I see that my post did not make that clear.

I may be biased, but Nina's cover is one of the few I would have considered to be better than this song by Garcia/Grisman. Unlucky draw.
