Slowly But Surely
Composer: James Booker

Slowly But Surely was played by the Jerry Garcia Band in the studio and at shows in January 1976 when James Booker was in the group.

On setlists the song is often called Right Back Together. However on the released recordings by James Booker the song is titled Slowly But Surely. Also at the end of the song at one JGB show Booker says:

This song here, Slowly But Surely, I dedicate this to my aunt down in Bay, St Louis, Bessie, my aunt Bessie, she inspired this you know, she inspired the title, 'cause she used to say that all the time, Slowly But Surely.
