All of Hunters' GD songs played in debut order.

Robert Hunter was the main lyricist for The Grateful Dead.  He died late last September.

As a tribute to his work in the band, I'm playing all of his songs, in the order the band debuted them.   I'm generally not playing the debuts (though it happens), but an early fairly representative version of the song.

Part 1 was in October 2019 and covered from mid-1967 (Alligator) to mid-1969 (Easy Wind).

Part 2 was last November and started in late 1969 (Cumberland Blues) and stopped in early 1971 (Loser).

Part 3 was in March 2020 and covered early 1971 (Wharf Rat) to early 1973 (They Love Each Other).

Part 4 was in July and ran from early 1973 (Here Come Sunshine) to mid-1976 (Help on the Way).

Enjoy!
