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..)
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!
kudos to Rob, too!
Rob Wiener of Lubbock Texas ( my good friend) was also a co -author. His contributions were significant as well.
when I said this stuff is A fucking Mazing, I meant Dodd's work, not the tiny url thing.
Now I know what versus out of NSRV to look at etc...
I can sing the FULL lyrics of the mother goose rhymes to my kids...
THANK YOU David!!
Thank you all for the kind words. Stay tuned for some interesting news as to the future of the online Annotated GD Lyrics--good stuff will be happening!
this stuff is A - fucking Mazing!!
kudos to David. I have enjoyed this site for a long while.
and if you are like me that enjoys the more tactile approach to reading, you can pick up a printed copy to read on the go. nice airplane reading!
just trying out the tiny url thing...
Kudos to everybody involved, including our own ddodd!
