The song, “One More Saturday Night” was written by Bob Weir for the superb solo debut of Bob Weir’s album Ace.
It’s been said that Ace is less of a solo album and more a derivative of the Grateful Dead as Jerry Garcia, Phil Lesh and Bill Kreutzmann all perform on the recording.
The song was first performed on 19 October 1971 by the Grateful Dead, and first appeared on Bob Weir’s Ace album (May 1972) and The Grateful Dead‘s Europe ’72 live album.
Its become a set staple and crowd pleaser ever since. It gets played often on Saturday nights somewhere on the planet…
