Franklin's Tower
Composer: Jerry Garcia / Bill Kreutzmann / Robert Hunter

Franklin's Tower was first performed by the Grateful Dead in June 1975, one of the rare Dead shows during that year. The song was played fairly regularly through to 1995. The song often occurred as part of the Help On The Way > Slipknot! > Franklin's Tower sequence but did occur just as many times away from this sequence.
