how many new songs did the grateful dead play between 1990 and 1995 that never made it onto a studio album? not covers but actual new songs. i always wondered why they never made another studio album after built to last

Lets see... here are the list of the songs.
Broken Arrow
Childhood's End
Corrina
Easy Answers
Eternity
Lazy River Road
Liberty
Way to Go Home
Wave To The Wind
Mathilda
Samba In The Rain
So Many Roads
The Days Between

To answer your question...during the 90's, the band tried to make it into the studio but everytime they tried it didnt turn out. Jerry was always never interested in the studio and most of time he wasnt focused at all on trying to record. Which, the result being that the album was never recorded. The band were also very tired then too and needed a break badly which was another factor. Phil talks alot about this in his book.

So in reality it was not a new song for the dead. A cover.

Did Brent sing that live or did Jerry. I'm gonna have to go find that.

Here is one of my favorite blogs that I check out. It's a listening guide to audience recordings on Archive.org. Some cool stuff here with great reviews.

There was also "If the Shoe Fits" which was another Phil Lesh song.

I always thought "Matilda" was a jam based on a traditional song or theme, but I could be wrong. The other 12 songs were definitely considered "new" GD songs.

I also believe that Robert Hunter stated that he and Vince Welnick had written a new song, that I believe was called "Red" or something similar, for the GD, but it was too late and they never got a chance to learn it or bring it out live or something. (I could be remembering that totally wrong though).
