    A thread to link to all your favorite versions of "Truckin'".

    .
    .

    .....it's been a weird week so far. Long strange trip indeed.

    "Truckin'" is a song by the Grateful Dead, which first appeared on their 1970 album American Beauty.
    It was recognized by the United States Library of Congress in 1997 as a national treasure.

    Written by band members Jerry Garcia, Bob Weir, Phil Lesh, and lyricist Robert Hunter, "Truckin'" molds classic
    Grateful Dead rhythms and instrumentation with lyrics that use the band's misfortunes on the road as a metaphor
    for getting through the constant changes in life.

    Its climactic refrain, "What a long, strange trip it's been," has achieved widespread cultural use in the years since the song's release.

    If you weren't too spaced out at the time (or now), you may have noticed that the Convoy man didn't sing or play any version of "truckin." The hippy dippy label applies to your favorite brand of white bread space cadet groovy music.

    And if you want to expand the field to country music about trucking, the best is "Six Days on the Road" by Dave Dudley, one of the three or four country songs that are worthy enough to make it to my esteemed playlist.

    ..........you sound like you are old and bitter because all the best looking, free love girls were hippies.
    Please do not confuse me with someone who esteems your playlist. I have no playlist, I just like music.

    Their "music" fans remind me of people who say Movie X can only be a appreciated when the viewer is stoned; of course if stoned enuff the exit sign looks pretty good too. My nephew always was pleased when the GD show arrived in town; so did the best drugs.

    They had their moments. Truckin is not among my favorites. Some of their best stuff is covers of blues, rock classics, and bluegrass.

    One of my favorites: Garcia on guitar with Steve Winwood and Traffic:
