I'd like to mention a blog I've been working on, called the Grateful Dead Guide, which is a series of (mostly long) articles about the early pre-'75 Dead.... There's different kinds of articles, analyzing songs or performances. For instance, in the last three articles:
The Dead's 1966 Songs - a discussion of all the songs played in 1966.
Early Thematic Jams - or, "Where Did I Hear That Before?" - a listing of the themed jams the Dead played in the early years (this one's been quite popular)
December 1972 - a review of the shows played in Dec '72.
Older articles include a breakdown of the 1975 Studio Rehearsals, listings of First Times Played and guest appearances, very long essays on the beginnings of Dark Star and the early acoustic sets, show reviews, song histories, and various topics, all packed with links so you can listen while you read.
I can't post very frequently, but I think you'll find this is one of the most informative sites around. Take a look!

I have been creating a statue with Stanley Mouse to add to the Jerry Memorial SIte in Fairfax California. The statue will be real cool. Cast in bronze with a life size guitar with Chrome Plated wings that light up like rainbows or fire.
Go to www.JerryMemorial.com to see a animated simulation, rednering, artist conception of the statue. I just added the interactive Jerry Garden where you can mouseover flowers to see photos of flowers that are actually growing at the Current Jerry Memorial. Flowers like Scarlet Begonias, China Cat Sunflowers, Sugar Magnolias, Purple Sage, American Beauties.
We are having an event / gathering / jam at the Current Jery Memorial site on Sat June 13th, 2009 during The Fairfax Festival
