Comments Off on You Gotta See This: Garrin Benfield

To be honest, many of the entries in the Dead Covers Project have left DI pretty cold. The source material is largely phenomenal but, as anyone who’s tried it can attest, hard to nuance into something worthy of others’ ears. No such trouble with this stripped down version of this quiet Garcia-Hunter classic by Garrin Benfield, which thoughtfully taps into that still, emotionally exposed territory that Garcia often explored out of Drums/Space at Grateful Dead shows. Watch the clip and pop over to the YouTube page for this video to “Like” it and help Garrin in the Dead Covers Project contest. Props, too, to Joshua Smith and Daniel Ford, who filmed this clip.
