Grateful Dead - Iko Iko.mp3

This accoustic rendition of this classic cotton picking song which was originally sung by slaves working in the cotton fields, in the deep south to keep up there spirits. Shows a vulnerable yet impervious side to the dead that I never new they had. For me the dead have always had an irresistable seductivness that always lures you into a false sense of security, I think this track is a perfect example of that. To get a feel of what I am talking about you need to check out some of there live stuff, try this live box set. Click here for the definitive Dead collection.
