Jerry Garcia Tribute | "Comes A Time"

The angle SCI had on the material was exquisite. They played these great songs from the inside out. The JGB, however, seemed all surface to me. The False Jerry kind of weirded me out. It seemed like more gloss and showmanship than anything else. They're a professional outfit, of course, but w/o Jerry there, or Kahn, it didn't really have much meaning for me compared to Nelson/Rothman, SCI and the RatDog sets. I'd have to say that JGB was the weakest set of the night, not that they weren't entertaining though...

Thoughts on American Music & Jerry Garcia

In light of the upcoming Fourth of July I would like to invite all readers to comment with your ideas of what constitutes American Music.  We could get a very nice discussion going regarding bands, styles, influences, allusions, imagery, intent, and anything else that might come up about what American Music is, was, means and does.

DSO Provides Fun & Nostalgia in NY

I made a deal with my wife that if I could get the kids to bed, so that everything at the ol' homestead was settled and peaceful, then I could go to the show.  So I went, though I was delayed enough by my two daughters that I arrived at the tail end of Dark Star Orchestra's first set.  DSO is not just your average

5.8.77 - Cornell University - 28 Years Later...

On the anniversary of one of the all-timers, this show is held so dear by so many deadheads that it is one of the true links for newbie to old-timer (as someone notes below).  It has almost invariably been one of the first tapes of a show that we first had our minds blown by and one of the first tapes that we literally wore out...most of us know the Betty Board with the Minglewood fade in and the chunk missing (Ouch!) from Lazy Lightning>Supplication which otherwise is of great quality.  My highest recommendation is to listen regularly to the

The Grateful Web meets The Grateful Dead...

Phil Lesh was in Denver autographing his new book, Searching for the Sound, and we were there to meet him.  The Tattered Cover hosted the event.  At least 500 on hand to have their books signed. Phil started autographing books around 7PM, 30 minutes early; no doubt the good crowd prompted this.  We were probably 200th on line and Phil was taking about 20 - 30 seconds chatting with most people.
