I’m gonna tell you a story through my eyes, cause those are the only eyes I have. Eyes of a newbie, eyes so green you could almost smoke them (I’m looking at you Bob Dylan). My first major autonomous Dead show, first time, believe it or not, on Lot. Spectrum Center - Charlotte, NC.

Melvin Seals & JGB | Berkeley, CA | Review

Submitted by Dylan Muhlberg on Sat, 11/25/2017 - 1:39 pm

Jam Veteran Melvin Seals is generally acknowledged as the keeper of the flame for continuing the music of Jerry Garcia Band. The organist/keyboardist met Garcia thru his friend Merl Saunders in the early 1980s. Garcia was struck not only by Seals sheer talent and soul but that he was separate from the whole Grateful Dead world. In fact, as a man of the church, he was only marginally familiar with the Dead and Garcia.

Just in time for Record Store Day on November 22nd, a truly under-sung live masterpiece is to be re-released. Many fans know of Jerry Garcia & Howard Wales 1970 memorizing fusion studio album Hooteroll?, which was notable (aside from the inspired flowing free-jazz) as Garcia’s first studio recording outside of the Grateful Dead since the band’s inception. Indeed Garcia saw something remarkable about Wales playing.

Dead.net Announces Dave's Picks Volume 24

Submitted by dead.net on Tue, 10/17/2017 - 12:19 pm

We're wrapping up this year's Dave's Picks series with one from the Grateful Dead's beloved Bay Area. An often overlooked gem from '72 (who's to blame with that rich pool of excellence), 8/25/72 Berkeley Community Theatre finds the Dead laid back and in the comfort zone of home. While one might think this would make the night too relaxed, the band fall in line with their "West Coast best" paradigm.
