I was in the studio on March 19, recording “Brokedown Palace,” and when it came time to record the vocals I found myself thinking a lot about Calico, who passed away on the 18th. She was an exemplary human being and one of the greatest hippies who ever lived. Thousands and thousands of Deadheads remember her fondly for the great care she took of us all in so many ways. Here is the recording, dedicated to Calico.

Recorded by Jeremy Goody at Megasonic Sound, Piedmont CA.
