Jesse Colter: Country singer Jesse Colter does her best to keep the artists featured in this edition a bit more diverse and a bit less wreaking of hippie. Source: Out Of The Ashes[audio:https://glidemag.wpengine.com/hiddentrack/wp-content/uploads/2010/04/rainydayjesse.mp3]
Jimmy Buffett: This live performance from Jimmy Buffett comes from a concert at the Nissan Pavilion in Bristow Virignia on August 30th, 2008.
Trey Anastasio Band: It was a simpler time in 2001 when Trey Anastasio could shout at the top of his lungs “Everybody Must Get Stoned”. This cover lasted only three performances, all in that first February/March TAB tour, the first shows to feature the horn section. Yeah, something tells me this one is never coming back.

Umphrey’s McGee: UM only performed two verses of this song at their first mashed-up Halloween in 2008. Normally this would be a reason *not* to include it in Cover Wars, but since Jake Cinninger’s mashup costume was Beelze-Bob Dylan and he performs the song as such, I just had to include it.

Video from the same show, the only performance:
Widespread Panic: This was one of two performances of this song by Widespread Panic, the other occurs in November of 2002. Pedal Steel guitarist John Keane joins WSP for this. And yes, they also played And It Stoned Me on this night. Source: 4-20-2002[audio:https://glidemag.wpengine.com/hiddentrack/wp-content/uploads/2010/04/rainydaywsp.mp3]
