I just wanted to say how much I appreciate you posting these Universe of Sounds. It is not often that a band will present information on such a spiritual nature in the mainstream of consciousness. Sad tho to see no one is posting anything here mentioning it. It has always been one of the things about the Grateful Dead that attracted me is that they come from a spiritual point of view & group consciousness. Something I think is missing in todays jamband scene which seems to me to have degenerated into just about partying & getting fucked up... which is not the point. We are all here to evolve & expand our consciousness & you guys were pioneers in this arena on a grand scale & brought this idea of expansion of consciousness to a group level which is really what its all about. To me when choosing substances I see there are only two choices, those that make you more aware & those that make you less aware. Sad to see most people choose the later as their substances of choice. Interesting thing is that those substances that make them less aware are highly addictive & from my point of view is what keeps them unconscious slaves to the system & prevents them from becoming sensitive to the subtleties of life all around them. Thankfully & Gratefully Your Music has the opposite affect of those substances.
