There's a commercial I stumbled across years ago - I don't think it ever made TV, but it is on you tube - and it's got Sugaree playing in the background for a little while just before all the action starts...

New Dead release?

I got an email a few days ago talking about an acoustic Dead show from 1970. There were links to record stores but no one had ever hear of it. Is it available? The show poster featured Bob "Ace" something and a few other groups. Any info would be appreciated.

Coangelo article

Nice article - lacking in judging and huge on honesty. Loved it.

"My Grateful Dead"

HuffPo article too good not to share.

"...maybe it is the honesty in their music and a trust that, just like their audience, the Grateful Dead were simply who they were, without judgment and without apologies -- even when they were dark figments of themselves. And, maybe it's because of this that on these warm June nights, I mark another year. I reflect on being ten years old, sitting in stadium seats at my first Grateful Dead concert, the summer breeze blowing through my hair as I listen to Jerry Garcia sing "Standing on the Moon," with a weathered and tired voice that was far from perfect -- but it was entirely his own and that's all I ever wanted to hear."

Commercial

I'm not sure if this is the right section but a promo commercial for the mystery channel Cloo TV had a guy who was like an amateur detective buying a car. The seller said the car hadn't been driven far and the buyer pointed out evidence refuting his statement, including a painted-over bumper sticker of the dancing bears. It's still running on tv.

This isn't a media sighting

This isn't a media sighting but it is a far-stretch-connection-to-the-Dead sighting:

I saw The Decemberists last week and during one of their songs (one of the new ones but I don't remember which), I was afforded the chance to see a Hurdy-Gurdy being played. No China Doll, but the Hurdy-Gurdy was there.

Sweet instrument.
