Hear The Decemberists Cover the Grateful Dead

The Decemberists - Row Jimmy (Grateful Dead cover) by jp917

As previously reported, The Decemberists has embraced its love of the Grateful Dead with its new 7”. The b-side to the group’s new 7’ single “January Hymn” is a studio cover of the Grateful Dead’s “Row Jimmy.” The group’s cover of “Row Jimmy” has already surfaced on the internet and can be found above.

Several members of The Decemberists have deep roots in the jamband scene. Founding members Jenny Conlee and Nate Query both played in the ‘90s jamband Calobo, and Conlee will sit in with Jerry Joseph on New Year’s Eve. Please click here for more on the group’s secret jamband roots.

Classic Calobo. Nate Query is wearing the purple shirt in the middle, Jenny Conlee is in the lower right corner

As an old-time “Deadhead” I hear the respect in this rendition.
Heard this song in 50 plus settings including many at Winterland. Good to know that younger groups understand.
