Stella Blue

I have never doubted that Jerry Garcia wrote some absolutely gorgeous ballads (with Robert Hunter's words, of course), but if you have ever doubted Garcia's songwriting, then check out Willie Nelson's version of Garcia-Hunter's "Stella Blue" on Willie's CD "Songbird" (the title cut of which is a version of the Fleetwood Mac song). The extra twist of the CD is that Willie uses Ryan Adams and the Cardinals as a backing band.
