Not sure why but this song entered my head today and I realized I never blog posted it so it is today’s Daily Dose of the Dead. This is another from the outstanding acoustic set at Golden Hall, San Diego, CA on August 5, 1970.
This is a traditional folk song about cocaine called “Tell it to Me”. I always enjoyed the real bluegrass, americana feel to this one.
1970 was quite a cool year as the dead transitioned from the more psychedelic free form to add many more styles of music such as bluegrass, blues and traditional folks to the mix.
"Now won’t you tell it to me, tell it to me, drink the corn liquor let the cocaine be. Cocaine’s, gonna kill my honey dead.”
