Phil Lesh Compositions

This page lists songs and jams composed or co-composed by Phil Lesh. A number of the entries in the list are jams that were performed during shows or rehearsals that were subsequently given titles when released on recordings.

The columns to the left indicate broadly who has performed or recorded the song. For this list "Phil Lesh groups" includes Phil Lesh led groups such as Phil & Friends and post Grateful Dead groups that included Lesh such as Furthur and The Dead. For detailed information about a particular song select the 'info' button for that song.

Phil Lesh was a founder member of the Grateful Dead. The list includes songs written for the Grateful Dead and songs and jams that are credited to the Grateful Dead rather than individual members of the group. Songs written away from the Grateful Dead are also included.

It is intended that this list will eventually be comprehensive but is probably falling short of this at present. Additions, corrections and comments are welcome
