I've heard the Dead/Other Ones/Phil Lesh/Ratdog do "Sugaree" plenty of times. Either sung by Bobby or Warren or Joan Osbourne. I admit I don't like when any of these people sing it. (Sorry Warren!!)

Only Jerry knew how to sing Sugaree. But that's my own opinion.

overall I'd say it was a great show. Started off mellow, kind of an odd opening song and then encore was also mellow. I figured they would have ended it with Saturday Night or added on a Johnny B Goode or Truckin' (which the teased as the opener).
It was definitely a show that played to the fans, and wasn't about their "hits" which is very respectful. When i say they played to the fans, the jams were long

Warren played great, he could have been higher up in the mix but I'm biased...can't get enough of a brother! But he mostly played in the style of Jerry with very little "Allman" flavor. (i swear he feeling a little bit of Blue Sky during Sugaree). Shakedown Street and St Stepehn were my highlights.

Gimme Shelter was my highlight since it was the most "Warren like" of all the songs. For the most part Warren really held back even during his solos to keep it within the bounds of what the GD do. The setlist was pretty good. St. Stephen was a treat. The only thing I would say is that Warren is SUCH a superior singer to the other two it is patently obvious. Certainly he should have sung ALL the Jerry songs. Bob's voice is best for his own songs.

I will have to totally disagree about Warren. I think he does a fine job singing 'Sugaree' and it makes it's way into the Mule setlists very often.

my buddy Scotty Gibson said it was terrific energy and Jeff Chimenti and Warren were superb.

no matter what you think of "The Dead" past and present > it is great that they are touring and playing and the fans get the chance to hear their music.

the fact that they played "The Eleven".........makes my day!

I thought it was a great show. Its not the same as the GD, but that doesnt make it bad -- its just another thing now and its pretty good. I agree with what a few others have said re Warren -- it would be better if he sung all of Jerry's songs.

Here are some photos:

I agree -- i enjoyed Sugaree last night, I enjoyed it on 3/28 at the Beacon, and the Bonnaroo Gov't Mule show gets a lot of airplay on my ipod!

What a fantastic show. What the best post Dead shows I have ever seen. Even rates with some of the better Grateful Dead I have seen.(I know this sounds like heresy) Not a bad song in the show. Great energy from the band and the crowd. What a great night.

Jeff C. is amazing...
Warren is incredible...

both nice editions to the Dead line-up

I'm still amazed at how Warren can do it
He must know every song ever made?

Totally agree. Bob needs to stop singing like William Shattner on songs like He' Gone. Good thing the crowd was singing along so loudly that they nearly drowned him out. I loved Ship of Fools and Sugaree. The Eleven was also a highlight for me. I have to admit, I also loved the arrangement of Cryptical out of Space. I felt like Phil was singing very subtly in the background which made for a very cool spacey feel.
