AN ALTERNATIVE ANTHEM
Grateful Dead 12/29/77 Winterland (Dick's Picks vol. 10)
Ruth Allison requested this show for the Jerry-Bobby-Vince "Star Spangled Banner" and a montage of media coverage of the event. I think the quote of the day is Jerry telling a reporter, "We're like bad architecture and old whores: eventually you get respectable if you're around long enough."
"An Alternative Anthem" was my not-terribly-successful attempt to stitch together a new set of patriotic images.
And: the "Dark Star" from Jerry's 31st birthday ain't too shabby.
