Spring & flowers: Sugar Magnolia

The Grateful Dead: Sugar Magnolia

"Sugar magnolia, ringing that bluebell..." One of the highlights on what´s about the only Dead album I can stand: the rootsy American Beauty (´70). None of their endless trademark guitar doodlings here. Written by Bob Weir and Robert Hunter, Sugar Magnolia is a relaxed ode to love in bloom. And hey, who wouldn´t love this girl? "She´s got everything delightful, she´s got everything I need, takes the wheel when I´m seeing double, pays my ticket when I speed..."

Great picture and great song. By far my favorite Dead album.
