To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Grateful Dead, JamBase teamed with Telefunken to produce the Songs Of Their Own video series.

Here’s how JamBase take on our recording of “Fire on the Mountain”:

Our neighbors from Reno, the soulful rock outfit Jelly Bread, were in town for a couple of Bay Area gigs and stopped into the JamBase office to record their session. We absolutely loved their laid-back arrangement of “Fire” but it only dawned on us after they had left our offices that the day they recorded was the 38th anniversary of one of the most fan-loved versions of the tune: the famed May 8, 1977 Dead show at Cornell University’s Barton Hall in Ithaca, New York.
