AN ALTERNATIVE ANTHEM

Grateful Dead 12/29/77 Winterland (Dick's Picks vol. 10)
TENNESSEE JED

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.

You can browse and/or search the Grateful Dead Hour program logs on the GD Hour web site. Let me know if there's a particular program you'd like to hear, and feel free to post requests and comments here or by email to gdhour [at] dead.net

Thanks for listening! David Gans

So much for THAT idea...

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?
