This is loads of fun

A 60's psychedelic fraternity party with the only fraternity I ever belonged to - the GD/JA extended family one.

David. Thanks for bringing this one out.

Ridiculous and sublime

David-
Thanks for this hoot of a show. I posted a comment on archive.org a while ago for this show. It teeters on the precipice of so many rock and roll performances...ridiculous and sublime. This one tends towards the ridiculous....its carefree, almost naieve youthful sillyness, though, is just sublime. Thanks.

And, I must say, its so wonderful and nostalgic to hear so many of these shows that kept me (and everyone else in their presence) company on so many long drives to shows, back and forth to college, work, et cetera, before I gave them all away. I've always wanted to thank you for making low gen, high quality soundboard recordings of the Grateful Dead to budding Deadheads like me in the late 80's and early 90's. Thanks. Those battered XLIIS-90's really helped me connect even more deeply to the music than I could have ever done otherwise. Thanks so much!

David, Golden West,

David, Golden West, drewstar11,
Thank you, David, for the link to the interview and the queing and for articulating concisely for Golden West the "context" I claimed; thank you, Golden West, for the info and the response to my bald claim; and thank you, drewstar11, for the kudos to David Gans, so well deserved and seconded here.

David Gans' time is a gift,

I wish that there were more hours in the day for you David - you seem to be so very dedicated to so many fantastic things that the only way you could be more of a blessing to us is if there were 50 hours a day. I don't know how you do it all. But I certainly appreciate what you do!
Best of everything to you!

Sweet Chaos

Carol Brightman was very active in radical politics in the '60s. The book tells her story and looks at the Grateful Dead from the perspective of a contemporary who was on a very different cultural path. Carol had access to the GD world through her sister, Candace, who was the Dead's lighting director.

I'll add GD Hours 539 and 540 to the queue. In the meantime, you can read a transcript of the interview here.

you're welcome

I have not. I haven't been sure what to make of it. I think the whole 'scholarly' thing has made me keep it at arm's length. I'm always afraid those folks will miss the point.
But to be fair I haven't given it a chance.
The 'context' you mentioned: What context are you referring to? (.... the one the book does such a good job of placing the band in).

Golden West, Thank you.

Golden West,
Thank you. I am sure it is the same person. Have "you" read her book? If so: What did you think?
