In an interview in 1972 Garcia commented on some of the songs on Workingman's Dead;

"I liked all those tunes. I loved them all, to give you the absolute and unashamed truth. I felt that they were all good songs. They were successful in the sense you could sing 'em and get off and enjoy singing 'em. Uncle John's Band was a major effort, as a musical piece. It's one we worked on for a really long time, to get it working right. Cumberland Blues was also difficult in that sense."
