From the Mars Hotel 50: U.S. Blues

Episode Duration: 01:22:19

The Grateful Deadcast begins the epic story of the Dead in 1974 with the writing of From the Mars Hotel’s album-opening “U.S. Blues” & the multiple debuts of the innovative Wall of Sound, featuring new interviews & never-heard archival audio. 

Guests: Ron Rakow, Richie Pechner, Sam Cutler, Steve Brown, Sally Mann Romano, David Lemieux, Brian Kehew, David Gans, Michael Parrish, Brian Anderson

Supplemental Materials

It took a village to build the Wall of Sound and it’ll take a village to tell its story.

 

The late Sam Cutler wrote You Can’t Always Get What You Want about his experiences with the Grateful Dead.

 

Sally Mann Romano of Out of Town Tours is the author of The Band’s With Me.

 

As always, we are immensely thankful to David Gans for the use of audio from his interviews, available in Conversations With the Dead, This Is All A Dream We Dreamed, and Improvised Lives, available from his website.

 

Journalist Brian Anderson is working on Loud and Clear, a book about the Wall of Sound, to be published next year by St. Martin’s Press.

    Thank You for the show! blistering hot outside and cool inside when the Grateful Dead came to Fresno with the wall of sound, this was more than a "concert" and touring with songs from Mars, one of my favorites , great music + great people = unforgettable happiness.
