Bob Weir already has a secure place in rock history as the Grateful Dead’s co-vocalist and what Andrew Clarke (in one of England’s leading newspapers, "The Independent") called the genre’s "greatest, if most eccentric rhythm guitarist." But listening to "Weir Here" reveals a songwriter who fused fragments of a broad span of American and European music into a repertoire that demands serious critical attention. When you have a modest, anti promotional personality – and when you spend 30 years next to an icon – it’s easy to fall under the radar. But if you listen to "Weir Here," such a low profile is impossible to justify. Bob Weir really is one of the genuinely fine songwriters of the late 20th century.
