Is DUDE, THANK YOU my brother....I mean, it's about time you get your own've been soothing my soul for round about since Dead.Net came out and you started doing Taper's Seciton....seriously, this is going to be the best jump to Light Speed, the Rhino has ever done. I commend every effort you put into this....and I can't wait to hear what other absolute GEMS you are pulling out the vault.

Judging by your Taper's Section, you've been fine tuning this GEM series from the way back, nothing's gone 'a bring him back, BEGINNING! Right on and heck yeah brother,

Oh my People...

I mean aren't we Deadheads? Do you go up to the first time you seen a Dead Lot Brother or Sister and say, ohhhhh your shit ain't rockin? When in fact you see the love and the LIGHT shining through? Ok, so put your negativity and comments out there for the FIRST Dave's Pick's....THEN shut your friggin' trap.......after that JUST LISTEN TO THE MUSIC and you'll understand that this is not about the Art of a Cover, but the ART ABOUT MUSIC! Seriously....take a deep giant breadth.....ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh, and take a deep and giant LISTEN to the ebbs and flows of the Good Ole' Grateful Friggin' Dead.

Oh and Brother or Sister...I know your are wrong about this....

You must be kidding

Sonically, this might be great, but no show with Donna need be released in this or any series. She seems like a nice person, but she just didn't have a good voice then and her timing was terrible.

DON'T EVER DIS DONNA....if you have ever known our family, we are a family. That being said, DONNA is the shizzle of my nizzle and the BEES KNEES of the kind generation. If you saw her at the Gathering of the Vibes recently, you wouldn't be saying that.....

Now drink some eggnog and eat some phat turkey and say...

Have a Grateful Holidays, and be sure to give a big huge, giant hugs to all your friends and family.

Love you Dead.Netters and Merry Christmas, happy Haunikwansika,

Ahhhh now that - that - that-

felt sooooo good, mmmmmm!
@smmmmmm. @smmmmmm
I'm smiling a twisted cheshire.
A mist from the waves is on me.
Oh Critter thanks for gathering me in
such an exact way...I've been feeling
scattered for a bit. Just a little nervous,
from the feelings all around. Kinda scary....
much worse at RatDog and sometimes the Zone.
And Some other places too, spookey spookey.
But here has been more good than bad and fella
the times they are a changing.
I was thinking and I have I have
I have a suggestion Canyon...
and I don't know what to do with it!
Maybe you can help come up with
something to do with it?
When I arrive at site on the main page>>>
I am a Guest, very nice to be.
When I Log-In I become a USER!
Who really needs to be a User when so many
exist already, in a bad way.
I think the HOME page sign in words---
should go from A -
A Guest to A Family Member.
Not >>>
A Guest to A User.
Just saying, always felt that way about that.
Not to put it on you just wondering.
SOmetimes you cannot help a person
and othertimes you can.
Just taking that chance for a idea for 2012!
Love you Critter, so much, xo!

If you just want to post

If you just want to post sunshine and lollipops without the personal opinion, then go to town with color. Me, I like to read what people think, even if I don't agree. Donna? Nowhere near as awful as some say...but her "contributions" to Scarlet Begonias and Playin' over the years leave quite a mark. On the other hand, I like her harmonies on Cassidy, Samson, He's Gone, etc...and I always enjoy the lovely Sunrise whenever I hear it. I think Donna has a beautiful voice when properly deployed. Her Scarlet B caterwauling should have been curtailed by the more senior members of the band. I think of it as a poor coaching decision.

And as for the cover art on DaP1...ugh. So completely out of touch with the music and the GD graphic style as to be laughable. I'm looking forward to hearing the music, though.

Love comes in many colors....
like a box of crayons-KINDA!
I found a couple a songs for this thread, xo!

I feel great and after listening to these songs
you will too! Or at least I will, as always, xo!

Feel the Love because I love you---All!
I really>>>really do and will always wish for your
REAL happiness, imagination and comfort to be REAL.
Even if...

So there's one if your not happy with my favorite band or
the Art that it COMES packed in. Yes, I love every second--of every song--
of every show. Yes, in mistakes, drunkenness and more because
I like the the humanness of it. I relate to it I absolutely relate to it.
And I like it, a fuck up is embraced by someone like me and I never
mind paying for one. I just sing louder, do you know all the lyrics?
Could you ever imagine being talented enough to play their
repetiore? They have never ceased to amaze me! Give Dylan a
try---recite a poem song or two by him, Arooooooooo!
So for thoes more fickle listeners, a ball bust for everyone!

Enjoy! They are just for fun! I am going to stick this IN another
thread too, it'S entertainment after all is said and done.

I will come bearing holiday wishes later after I have cleansed
myself in preparation for the days ahead. I know a special
dude when I see one. Okay- no abrasions just laughs!

Silly %$^#

Happy Monday! The drumsticks are A spark of a fire that's
getting ready to burn a fire to warm my soul and soothe
my feet as they have "convinced me of my pain...."
You'd never wanna walk a mile in my "red shoes".

Love yas forever, xo and ever. -"What you don't want to know..."

I love your idea! Wonder if it could say, instead of Online users, to Online Family. Shoot we are not a product of Tron are we? Tron has users, we have family.

We should log into our "Family" account. I'm not a user either, I'm a Deadhead that loves people.

Have a Grateful Day....and remember there's nothing left to do but smile, smile smile.

what a god awful cover

say what you will about the 'road trips' series, but the artwork for that series kicked ass. IMO the artwork for the first 'dave's picks' is horrendous. are the skeletons holding dildos, drum sticks or lightsabers?

its obvious those in charge have no clue what they're doing; too busy judging which way the wind blows in an effort to maximize profits.
