He Was A Friend Of Mine
The Dead version is similar to a number of different variations of this old folk song, but I've never been able to find one with the same verses as the Dead version. In particular, I have not been able to find a version with the "He pushed me on a swing" verse. When Dylan recorded it in the early 1960's he credited a Chicago street singer named Blind Arvella Gray, but I have not found any evidence that Gray ever recorded it. I know there is a song with a similar title by Hoyt Axton and I have also been looking for a recording by Mark Speolstra that is supposed to be similar to the Dead version. Any help would be appreciated.
I Know You Rider
I'm looking for a recording of this song by Big Brother on an album called Cheaper Thrills (possibly recorded after the death of Janis Joplin) or any recordings not listed in the song archive. I've also seen this song with the title Woman Blue, so be on the look out for that as well.
