"Dark Hollow" is a folk song or tune originally recorded by folk artist-musician Bill Browning in 1958. It is incorporated as the B-side of his single "Borned with the Blues." Even though it is normally credited to Browning, the melody has some musical similarities to the customary "East Virginia Blues/East Virginia" and "ComeAll You Fair and Tender Ladies," likely Browning's motivation. "Hollow" is seen as the mainstream highlight of Browning's short profession. However, it didn't arrive at the pinnacle of its prominence until Grateful Dead in the mid-1970s recorded it. They Started performing acoustic fronts of the tune in 1970. Electric covers before long followed in 1973 pursued by progressively acoustic covers in 1980. Altogether, Grateful Dead performed "Dark Hollow" around 30 times. Their adaptation shows up on History of the Grateful Dead, Volume One (Bear's Choice), and the live recording.
