Rain
Composer: John Lennon / Paul McCartney

Rain was performed just over a dozen times by the Grateful Dead between December 1992 and October 1994.

Rain was recorded by the Beatles on 14th April 1966 and originally released as the B-side of Paperback Writer on 10th June 1966. The song contains the Beatles first use of backwards tape loops, which were supposedly a consequence of John Lennon accidentally playing a tape backwards.
