Thanks for the update

I was just thinking that the website has to be where I first dove into the Lyrics of the Grateful Dead and even sculled back around to an old poetry obsession.

I picked up the new paperback edition, for my road trip. I really love the fact that it is a full size edition! Nice work. I left my hardcover edition in kind hands.

Wondering about a bit of what seems to be a haze surrounding the Friend of the Devil creation.
The paperback edition of The Complete Annotated Grateful Dead Lyrics seems to list Words by Robert Hunter and Music by Jerry Garcia and John Dawson,
A Box of Rain lists Garcia, Dawson, and Nelson (on page 369, left hand column, bottom of page, paperback edition.) That one is of course all lyrics by Robert Hunter.

I know, what is the advice???
when you get confused, just listen..............

(but still, I can't let the discrepancy go without at least trying to ask someone else..)

Further news

Hello,

Well, it turns out that the annotated lyrics website will not be moving to dead.net, which had been my hope, after all. For now, the site is frozen in its current state. There's plenty of material there, and it will stay as long as the University Of California at Santa Cruz consents to host it.

By the way, Rob Weiner was my co-author on the annotated bibliography, not on the website or the lyrics book. Just for the record!

Do not forget Rob!1

Rob Wiener of Lubbock Texas ( my good friend) was also a co -author. His contributions were significant as well.
