    Grateful Dead Hour no. 385

    Week of February 5, 1996

    Requested by Trent Henley, who shares my appreciation of the late-'79 Grateful Dead.

    "I, Flagpole" is one of my "Mutilaudio" digital audio art pieces. Making fun of Capitol Hill bloviators will never go out of style, even if the content of their blather changes from year to year.

    Also featured is a nice cover of "Liberty" produced by my friend and collaborator, Peter Simon, for a series of compilation records he's put out on his home island, Martha's Vineyard.

    Enjoy!

    Now about the GD Hour herein...
    ...the jewel of the show is 1st Set opener Sugaree. If you haven't heard this you don't know Sugaree. Sadly, the wad had been shot at this point, and the rest of the show, IMHO, was anti-climactic. But do check out "Sugar-Incendiaree" my peeps, and remember the music is the most important thing the rest is smoke & mirrors.

    GD and politics
    Listen to the 04/20/69 open-air show at Clark University where the Dead were playing during a student demonstration.The show starts off with a speech by a student leader, and you can hear Jer's guitar making VERY impatient noises in the background, virtually forcing the guy to wrap it up quickly!

Am enjoying listening to 10/13/08. Has some of that good old loose, flowing GD feel to it. Just wish it wasn't attached to overt, blatant political advocacy as it is. Wonder what Jerry would think about a political candidate giving a campaign speech to the 'heads right before and virtually as part of the show. I, for one, don't like it a bit. Time was, the GD was a celebration for EVERYBODY, which was one of the really beautiful and unique things about a GD show. This incarnation attaches a political litmus test to the event which inherently manifests divisiveness, polarization and conflict. Oh, of course not as long as you don't deviate from the program. Not what I'm accustomed to or am looking for from the GD experience. Everybody wants me to be just like them. The times they are-a-changin'...

Jerry and the Grateful Dead played @ the Oakland Auditorium on 3/5/1971. It was a benefit for Bobby Seales, one of the leaders of the Black Panter Party, which was based in Oakland. they were political radicals that carried firearms openly in the streets, legally. so go back home and chew on that before your next post about what went down...

>Time was, the GD was a celebration for EVERYBODY< there were never many racial minorities at GD shows, 95% white audience.

but that doesn't mean people of other complexions weren't welcome. If you bleed tie-dye it doesn't really matter what your skin looks like. For that matter, in my observation Deadheads are Jewish in much larger numbers than the general population also. Various Jewish friends of mine have had theories as to why this might be so. Often contradictory.
