Indie-folk musician and self-proclaimed Deadhead Hiss Golden Messenger has shared an acoustic performance covering the Grateful Dead‘s “Dire Wolf”. The classic Americana tune originally appeared on the Dead’s 1970 Workingman’s Dead album, which celebrated its 50th anniversary earlier this month.

Hiss Golden Messenger (real name, Mike “MC” Taylor) shared his acoustic solo take on the Robert Hunter-penned tune to his Instagram on Monday, where he also added, “When @vinylmeplease asked me to contribute liner notes to their forthcoming Grateful Dead box set, it allowed me to revisit my history with the band. The first Dead song that ever worked its magic on me is called “Dire Wolf,” so I thought I’d share a little cover of it from home.”

Fans will remember that Taylor performed his take on “Brown Eyed Women” for the massive Day of the Dead all-star compilation covers album which arrived back in 2016.
