Jerry Garcia on Jr. Walker's "Cleo's Back," via Dennis McNally's A Long Strange Trip:

There was something about the way the instruments entered into it in a kind of free-for-all way, and there were little holes and these neat details in it -- we studied that motherfucker. We might have even played it for a while, but that wasn't the point -- it was the conversational approach, the way the band worked, that really influenced us.
