Daily Dose of Dave

Smooth Rider- Live from Fenway Park- Live Trax Vol. 6

Smooth Rider has always reminded me of my friend Jake in his younger years. The lyrics echo the type of ‘morning after’ stories that he would always have ready to tell. The album version of this song has always to me felt like just half a song. At a total play time of 2:17, it is one of the shortest songs that the band has recorded. When I finally heard it jammed out to almost ten minutes, it finally felt complete.
