Song Of the Day – “Catfish John” by Grateful Dead

Here we have the Grateful Dead studio outtake version of “Catfish John” from the 1976 sessions for their album “Terrapin Station.” This song was originally recorded by the Jerry Garcia Band and released on their 1976 album “Reflections.” This version has a more upbeat feel and features a solo Jerry vocal rather than the Jerry/Donna Godchaux vocal on “Reflections,” reflecting the commercial direction producer¬†Keith Olsen unsuccessfully¬†attempted with the Grateful Dead.
