Ace was the first solo album by Grateful Dead rhythm guitarist Bob Weir, released in 1972. Its origins come from an offer by the Dead's Warner Bros. Records label to have band members cut their own solo records, and it came out the same year as Jerry Garcia's Garcia and Mickey Hart's Rolling Thunder. However, in the case of Ace, Weir's backing band was the Dead itself (minus Ron "Pigpen" McKernan), and all songs except "Walk in the Sunshine" became concert staples of the Dead.
Ratdog - a solo project of Grateful Dead rhythm guitarist Bob Weir - recorded this studio album in 2000. Weir and his cohorts (Jeff Chimenti on keyboards, Mark Karan on lead guitar, Rob Wasserman on bass, and Jay Lane on drums) are on solid footing here as they lay down a sturdy groove-rock base, and the album features a guest appearance by Grateful Dead drummer Mickey Hart. 5 Welcome to the World. 1 Bury Me Standing 2 Lucky Enough 3 Odessa 4 Ashes and Glass 5 Welcome to the World 6 Two Djinn 7 Corrina 8 October Queen 9 The Deep End 10 Even So. Details.
In fall 2000, RatDog released its only studio recording, comprised of eight RatDog originals and the Grateful Dead's "Corrina," which itself has undergone a makeover in the hands of this band. Nearly all of the songs on the album remain staples in RatDog's repertoire with good reason, and though the songs have grown immensely over the years, this album remains a treat to hear. Each song is played through without regard to "radio length," with half of the tunes stretching over 7½ minutes.
The long-awaited release from former Grateful Dead icon Bob Weir's jam band Ratdog shouldn't disappoint hungry Deadheads. The /jazz feel of the Dead's live sets have been reborn in this incarnation as well, accented by guest Mickey Hart's loose percussion on a couple of tracks (notably the cover of "Corinna").
Faults in that foundation show, however, as the album progresses. The horn- and harmonica-driven "Odessa" illustrates Evening Moods' shortcomings; it's meant to be down and dirty ("She got a mouth put a junkyard dog to shame"), but comes across as lightly soiled, in large part because Weir is no belter-which is what the rather strained lyric demands. There are certainly moments here that champions of the Grateful Dead's alternating frontman will cherish, but even some of them might wish he'd step back from the mic with every other tune.
