Grateful Dead Hour #715

Week of June 3, 2002

From the intro to this program: "This week I'd like you to meet a musician who recorded and toured with the Grateful Dead from 1970 to 1975 and then disappeared from the scene for more than 25 years. His name is Ned Lagin, and he is the creator of the album Seastones (released in April 1975 on the Dead's Round Records (RX 106); reissued in an expanded edition in 1991 (Rykodisc RCD 40193)), which featured Phil Lesh, Jerry Garcia, David Crosby, and Grace Slick. Ned appeared on my KPFA fund-raising marathon on February 3, 2001, with a recording of a jam that took place on his biurthday, March 17, 1975. This radio appearance led to a longer interview, which appeared as a new chapter in the revised edition of my book Conversations with the Dead, published in April 2002 by Da Capo Press."

I've posted a transcript of the original 2/3/2001 KPFA interview at at http://www.gdhour.com/transcripts/lagin.010203.html

I spoke with Ned a couple of months ago. He's been working on an remix of Seastones and a couple of other musical adventures. I told him I'm ready to put him on the air again as soon as he's ready with any or all of these works.

thanks for the show

Interesting story, great interview. I bought that first Seastones when it came out, still have that album and also have the CD. I like the concept he mentions of alternating when the selections are played . I hope that the jazz jam and others like it see the light of day. Oh and we have three stray cats at our house that we adopted, so share something in common with you guys. I like it that you are focusing on some of the more obscure facets of the Grateful Dead.

Thanks for having the show on the site; it was never on the air on any stations near where I live. So finally after all these years.

interview

The interview w/ Lagin was remarkable. And the link to the text was great 'cause there's so much more there than fit into this particular GDH.
