    Grateful Dead Hour no. 794

    GD Hour #794 is the second installment of a four-part series featuring an interview with Steve Parish, the legendary GD roadie who was also the manager of the Jerry Garcia Band for the last decade or so of its existence. The occasion was the publication of Steve's memoir, Home Before Daylight.

    Speaking of Home Before Daylight, news recently surfaced that a movie is in the works. According to Rolling Stone:

    ...now moviegoers can start preparing for the most acid-soaked tale of them all: Home Before Daylight, a film based on the formative years of The Grateful Dead. The movie will be adapted from a book by Steve Parish, who has some real credentials: He was a Dead roadie for 35 years.

    The story, which has already been endorsed by Dead guitarist Bob Weir, will chart the history of the band, focusing on those times they chilled with Ken Kesey and Jefferson Airplane in the Haight-Ashbury days. We're totally stoked for this film, if just to see who gets cast as Grace Slick (please not Lindsay Lohan).

    This show also features one of my all-time favorite Grateful Dead performances, from the second set of 5/19/74 in Portland. I was there that night, and this was one of the first tapes I went for when they let me into the vault in 1985 to get music for the radio show.

    Enjoy!

Thanks to David Gans for making these shows available for download!!... I remember hearing a studio out-take from Mickey Hart's Rolling Thunder(?) of a Fire on the Mountain rap and an instrumental ... I've tried in vain to search for it on the site ... Is it possible to one day post that show, if you guys can find it?? In the mean time, I'm totally thrilled with all the choices so far ... Thank you X 1000!!!

So it only took you 793 shows to get back to 1974-05-19, huh?I have GDH #1 on the original broadcast vinyl and it features the excellent Scarlet from this show. Maybe you can dip back to year one so I don't have to transfer the vinyl ;)

I would like to thank you guys, and of course the Grateful Dead, from the bottom of my heart for allowing me/us the unquestionable delight of listening to some of the finest music ever played (in my opinion) at our leisure. Thank you. Living in the U.K. I didn't have the pleasure of hearing any of the GDH's first time round but if Althea and/or Eyes of the World was broadcast in any of them......well, is there any possibility of hearing those tracks/shows?

.... I'm speechless! What a great GD show. Maybe one of the best Truckin>Jams I've heard in a while. "All energy flows according to the whims of the Great Magnet. What a fool I was to defy him."

Good Times Thank you David Gans for doing the GDHour. This particular segment was touching and also very enlightening. The interview with Steve Parish shed new light on Jerry and the Grateful Dead that I would've never known otherwise. As a youger generation deadhead I never had the opportunity to see any live performances or grasp some of this information as it originally aired. Without this show I would no doubt have never had the opportunity to learn and understand more about the relationship between the Grateful Dead and the JGB. Once again thank you David and Steve.
