Grateful Dead

Just like your favorite jam, things are going to get a bit funky on over the next week or so. Community accounts will be temporarily closed October 16th-17th and may be under further maintenance through October 22nd. But rest assured, we will be back up and better than ever shortly thereafter. Stay tuned! Thanks!

Knobby Reed

Cure For The Blues (His most well known CD)
Knobby is a local legend where I live and he has the chops. It's a cryin' shame he can't make his night job pay. But I guess that is the blues and if you don't have'um you can't sing'um. He alternates between three different guitars in a power trio and he commands that phat sound. Catch him if you can, definitely worthy.

Right Now

Just finished listening to The Samples' debut, self-titled album, currently listening to "Save The Turtles," and will be listening to "A Scarcity of Miracles" by Jakszyk, Fripp, & Collins up next.

“This odd museum merely documents, juxtaposes, relativizes – a perverse collection.”
– James Clifford, “On Ethnographic Surrealism”

In the Unofficial Channels column of the February issue of The Wire, I write about Flokimotheque, a YouTube playlist that revives the perverse poetics of ethnographic surrealism. The playlist contains more than 100 posts that each juxtapose a single still image with a single piece of music. Check it out to see how prolonged immersion in such a seemingly prosaic process can reconfigure the senses and send ripples across the surface of the Real."

Flokimotheque -

a fantastic little collection, containing everything from Nino Rota to Arne Nordheim, Vladimir Cosma to Mayo Thompson, Patty Waters to Rhys Chatham, music from Indonesia, Ennio Morricone, The Bug to Carla Bley, music from the Baka Forest People, Cabaret Voltaire to The Laneville-Johnson Union Brass Band.
one a day for 100 days and rising. treat yourself to a few minutes of the sidereal.

As I'm

listening to the first half of the bonus disc from 3/22/72 included w/ the Reinhalle purchase (and will no doubt be glued to the second half tomorrow), I would like to make an obnoxiously obsessed request for this run to be released in its entirety.

Grateful Dead Hour no. 359

By David Gans

August 7, 1995
These two studio tracks show the surprising development of "Crazy Fingers." Compare them with the final version on Blues for Allah.

Also: A nice pair of songs from the fall of 1994, and one of two songs the Jerry Garcia Band contributed to the soundtrack of Wayne Wang's film Smoke.


Grateful Dead 10/17/94 Madison Square Garden, New York

Grateful Dead 2/19/75 and 3/5/75 in the studio
CRAZY FINGERS (rehearsals)

Jerry Garcia Band, from the Smoke soundtrack

Every Wednesday, we post a program from the Grateful Dead Hour archives for your enjoyment and enlightenment. You can browse or search the playlists at or on the GD Hour Search page, and let me know what program(s) you'd like to hear by emailing me at

Thank you for listening!

- David Gans

Ahhhhh, The Grateful Dead!
