Grateful Dead Releases “My Brother Esau” Official Video (Oakland, CA 7/24/87)

“This Bob Weir-John Barlow song was only in the Dead’s repertoire for four years, but it was a terrific first set addition, played in several arrangements, sometimes with a drumming introduction, and sometimes with the entire band coming in for a grand intro. I saw this at four of the first six shows I attended, and then it was dropped for good in October 1987.” – David Lemieux”This Bob Weir-John Barlow song was only in the Dead’s repertoire for four years, but it was a terrific first set addition, played in several arrangements, sometimes with a drumming introduction, and sometimes with the entire band coming in for a grand intro.
