“Good Mornin’ Little School Girl” – Grateful Dead at P.N.E. Garden Auditorium in Vancouver, Canada on July 29, 1966 [SoundCloud Audio Single]

The Grateful Dead archive has shared a second single that will be included on a 50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition of the band’s debut LP. The release will feature remastered sound and bonus tracks from two concerts that happened in Vancouver during July of 1966.

Listen to the Dead perform a bluesy version of Sonny Boy Williamson’s “Good Mornin’ Little School Girl” from July 29, 1966. This follows an official release of “Standing On The Corner.”

Crisp sound and a spirited performance allows this version to stand out and give you a sense of the band’s bluesy roots. Highlighting this track is Ron “Pigpen” McKernan’s passionate vocal delivery and skillful harmonica playing. The song was a staple during the band’s formative years and included on the self-titled 1967 debut album, but played only one time between 1970 and 1992.

Pick up Grateful Dead (50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition) on Amazon (2CD / Vinyl). It’s scheduled to be released on January 20, 2017.
