"I did smoke a joint of marijuana with Jerry Garcia and the Grateful Dead once, just to be sociable. It didn’t seem to do anything to me one way or another, so I never did it again."

Kurt Vonnegut

A set list, handwritten by Jerry Garcia, of Bob Dylan songs, dating from the Dylan & The Dead Tour of 1987. Throughout their career, the Grateful Dead covered many Bob Dylan songs, and in 1987 these two legends played together on a short tour of 6 US dates. This set list was written by Garcia for the Dead’s rehearsals with Dylan at their Front Street Studio in San Rafael, CA. In his book Chronicles Dylan talks at length about this tour, and how the Dead pushed him to perform songs he’d written, but hadn’t played in many years. Dylan resisted, even walking out of the rehearsals this list dates from. Frustrated, he wandered into a nearby bar, and once inside, he saw a singer who’s technique inspired him and gave him insight into how he might indeed perform some of his songs the Dead were so eager to play. He returned to the rehearsals, and surprisingly agreed to sing the songs the Dead had asked for. This set list is particularly historic, as Garcia has written his choices on the back of a xeroxed set list in Dylan’s hand, listing the many covers that he wanted to play, but eventually were dropped in favor of his own songs. This set list was given by Garcia to his longtime personal manager and Dead stage manager, Steve Parish (author of “Home Before Daylight: My Life With The Grateful Dead.)
