Single Notes: Dark Stars & Anti-Matter
Watch an interview with Gene Sculatti
I guess it doesn't anti-matter anyway.
He worked on projects for Rhino and obviously had friends or called in a favor. I had the same perception you did immediately upon seeing this. Then again, his title is calculated to get Deadheads to at least pay attention.
This book isn't very interesting at all. I wouldn't recommend it even at it's inexpensive price. I'm surprised Dead.net is pushing it like it is.
I could not agree more with Gene. Now after 40 years of listening a to many kinds of rock, jazz, experimental music, the Dead's first true album is the one I love best. It grew on me I the portable mp3 era for sure, as a lot of studio Dead did. It's a real monument to their long range, big ears style.
I'm (I guess) an aging hipster. First dead show 1985. This was after punk rock life.
Hurray for aging hipsters!!
Your link worked like a charm! Got in on my kindle.
It did the trick. When I went to Amazon to buy it a few days back, owning a regular Kindle, it said it would only load on the Kindle Fire or Android. Your link somehow side-stepped that and it downloaded as usual after purchase. 'Preciates it!
Gene became well known at the record companies. He worked on projects for A&M, Capitol, Columbia, Elektra and Rhino Records. He packaged a variety of books on popular culture: The Catalog of Cool (Warner Books, 1982), Popcorn (Pocket Books, 1984) and San Francisco Nights: The Psychedelic Music Trip (St. Martin’s, 1985). He adapted his first book to another radio show, The Cool & the Crazy, a popular feature on NPR’s KCRW-FM from 1984 to 1987, contributed columns to Oui magazine and the Los Angeles Herald-Examiner, and worked on pioneering interactive-CD programming for Time Warner.
