Grateful Dead History

I miss the late morning slot for GD history: 6 am (central) is too early, usually, and come around 6 pm I have something else going on like dinner, mowing the lawn, or still hitting happy hour. David, if you can return your historical feature to 10 am, this ole 'head will be gracious.

just a thought

maybe you guys could get John K. into the studio sometime and let him introduce himself and play a few tunes for us. It might help me appreciate Furthur more as i've had a bit of a hard time adjusting and was a bit pissed at the loss of Ratdog but I like to think I'm adaptable.

this is the Sirius radio topic, not the YouTube Video Posting topic. I am removing the posts containing YouTube videos with no discernible connection to the topic.

Sugaree

I heard a version of Sugaree last night on GD Radio. It was not the Jerry version, older I think. A different song. Older I believe. Sounded like it was sung by a child or young woman. I really liked it. Does anyone know who it is by. I did not catch the song info as I was in and out of sleep.

finding Furthur

Listening to the Asbury Park show the first time I ended up comparing John to Jerry which is how I came up with my negative review. I listened to the show again Sunday and said to myself I'll have an open mind and just accept it for what it is. By doing this I found myself enjoying it and thought John sounded pretty damn good! When Bobby sang " If this ain't the real thing, it's close enough to pretend" I had to smile. I guess if it's good enough for Phil and Bobby it should be good enough for me too. I hope I get the ticket for the Haiti benefit that I ordered. It would mean a lot to me to be able to be there to help the people of Haiti and to be there to help sing "happy birthday" to Phil.

furthur findings

I can wait. From what I've heard so far, the drummers sound good, Jeff has impressed me,very enjoyable. As for John's guitar, I've found myself cringing way too much. I hope the boys can teach him a few things so I don't feel like I'm listening to a amateur copy-cat who needs to find his own musical, oh I don't know, "soul"? I hope by the time they hit the west coast I can say I've heard a vast improvement.

Believe it if you need it, or leave it if you care?

New Furthur shows

We haven't been able to get our hands on recordings of the rehearsal shows (yet?). Working on it.
