Grateful Dead Hour no. 503

Week of May 11, 1998
Grateful Dead 8/1/73 Roosevelt Stadium, Jersey City
The DEAD at CANDLESTICK 4/93
AN ALTERNATIVE ANTHEM
Grateful Dead 12/29/77 Winterland (Dick's Picks vol. 10)
Ruth Allison requested this show for the Jerry-Bobby-Vince "Star Spangled Banner" and a montage of media coverage of the event. I think the quote of the day is Jerry telling a reporter, "We're like bad architecture and old whores: eventually you get respectable if you're around long enough."
"An Alternative Anthem" was my not-terribly-successful attempt to stitch together a new set of patriotic images.
And: the "Dark Star" from Jerry's 31st birthday ain't too shabby.

I had been trying to avoid listening to any '73 so that I will be in a complete frenzy by the time the Winterland box arrives. But here I see a '73 Dark Star and can't help myself from clicking on "Listen Now."
Oh well, it is such a beautiful version that I feel no guilt at all. Besides, there's still another month to go, right?
Great way to wake up this morning. THAT Dark Star, hearing the boys do the national anthem... Thanks! Please play # 504 next week!
