High on a Mountain is NOT an original... It was written by a friend of mine, Olabelle Reed. Furthur has tweeked the lyrics, but so has everyone else that has covered it. Marty Stewart won Ms Reed a Grammy in the 70s for his recording of it.

that being said, my vote goes to Big Bad Blues! =)


Just checked out her version of the song. Sounds great love how Furthur arranged it too!

It's probably Big Bad Blues for me, but I'm liking Colors of the Rain more every time I hear it, too.

Colors of the Rain may be mine, that or Mountain Song.

to bad they pretty much don't play any except a BBB or Mountain Song here and there (once per tour)

It would have to be Colors of the Rain, I do like the new songs and wish they would play Welcome to the Dance, Seven Hills of Gold more often. They do seem to play Big Bad Blues and Mountain Song much more then the others, even if they could through in Muli Guli once in awhile. The new stuff is a nice break.

Mountain Song. I do wish they would play the others more, though.
