"Sugar Magnolia" is a song by the Grateful Dead. Written by Robert Hunter and Bob Weir, it is perhaps the most well-known song by the band, alongside such hits as "Truckin'" and "Casey Jones".
First released on the 1970 album American Beauty, "Sugar Magnolia" made its live debut on June 7, 1970 at the Fillmore West in San Francisco.
When performed live, the song was often divided into two different entities: "Sugar Magnolia" and "Sunshine Daydream". The break between the two could be a few beats, a set, or even a few concerts.
