    You know how some songs, and not just Dead songs, transport you back to a certain time and place whenever you hear them? Maybe you didn't even like them at the time, but three notes and there you are driving back from the beach when you're 16, or whatever.

    And some songs just come to embody a particular time and place forever after.

    What are yours?

The Golden Road to Unlimited Devotion-summer of '67. I was not a Deadhead then, I was just a college student who'd tasted the joys of the Bay Area and was suffering mightily in SoCal. I still have the vinyl of the first album. I bought it from a friend of mine who didn't like it. It had me from the first notes and joyous yelp of "See that girl..." The Supremes, Someday We'll Be Together, single version with Johnny Bristol's vocals, late 1969: Stuck in grad school, missing my Bay Area friends, driving my folks green Impala down the Newport Freeway. Gretchen Wilson, Redneck Woman, summer 2004. THE song of the summer. And it's true, I ain't never been the Barbie doll type, either. Gnarls Barkley, Crazy, 2006. Sums up the year pretty well, actually. (Yesterday on Acoustic Sunrise I heard Shawn Colvin's version, which I'm gonna get from iTunes forthwith. I've been singing the darn thing ever since. I'm not that much of a Shawn Colvin fan, any more than I'm a fan of whatever genre Gnarls Barkley may belong to, but when a song's got it it's got it.)

Cool thread for time trippin' and checking out the amazing power of songs to open memories buried deep as a compass may find a specific star in the scattered sky of moments. I don't know if it is self indulgent to reminisce and look at some long past scenes of another time as though through an innner television of different times, people and scenes. Or just to feel like it was if just for a few fleeting seconds that live in chords and notes in time and harmony of nostalgia. If a song can take you there to smile and relish a certain memory then sing it and smile and cry if it makes you. Got caught with a space gaze into another place when I heard The Stylistics sweet jam today on "I'm stone In Love With You"...what a voice...Cars were big and so were the '70's. Uh-Oh I'm back in a gas line...but jammin'! Also had to blast out "Luka" when I heard it this wekend. It is a great jam and Suzanne Vega's voice is mesmerizing... silk and strong to tackle the difficult subject matter of abuse and deliver it through a child's mind and voice, make a challenging point and rock out with this vulnerable strength is amazing. Took me back to the 80's and my old girfriend who I only wish the best for...but man, I never knew this song was so good 'til I turned it up loud...the bass and rhythm are amazing and the structure is tight with a loose break that they cinch perfectly. well, I love time travel and songs of the times that just take you right there if only for a fleeting moment is so cool...so I can't wait 'til the next trip. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ "Sun comes up blood red Wind yells among the stone All graceful instruments are known" Bobby Petersen ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1 off hand, Maybeline by Chuck Berry takes me back to my days drag racing my big ass, souped up 71 Buick Riveria for cash or pink slips. if that song comes on, I can't help but put the pedal to the metal. "But officer, Maybeline was on the radio" is no defense. mine was maroon, with a white interior. Maybeline was not on the afternoon that I totaled that car in a really bad wreck, which I was really, really lucky to walk away from. I ended up on someone's land, hitting a hundred year old stone wall. The wall won.

X-mas morning, all sitting around the dining room table for breakfast just so, including Grandma and Grandpa. This wan't, however, just any X-mas; it was 1969.

When I hear any of the songs that were on this album am 5 again, sitting in front of my own childen´s record player. Loved that thing, though it did GREAT damage to my Dad´s records. Any song from Jesus Christ Superstar, and am also instantly a child in my mind, sobbing on my dad's lap. GREAT topic, by the way ********************************** Don't part with your illusions.

In my room with my sister we pick out an album, Carol King Tapesrty, we put it on the turntable and gently put the needle down and I pick up my hairbrush as my micophone, then the music starts piano first my sister is playing the dresser as the piano, pounding away the tunes, then I start to sing...I feel the earth move under my feet I feel the sky tumbling down I feel my heart start to trembling Whenever you're around Oh, baby, when I see your face Mellow as the month of May Oh, darling, I can't stand it When you look at me that way Oh yea, we are hot! Then my brother opens the doors and starts laughing at us and we scream and slam the door shut and continue our show! Such fun memories with that song!! Thanks Carol King!! Peace, Gigi Mssing my sister!

I love the song The GRTUD, too! I could go on and on about those lyrics and how incredible they are to me, not only in terms of a song, but the emerging history of the GD and my own life, but that's another story. In addition to all the GD/Pink songs that bring on flashbacks for me, there's this one that always brings back that first tingling of some yellow sunshine I got hold of, back in the "day". "Hyacinth House" by the Doors (LA Woman album) PS - Loved that Carole King album too. "You know what the trouble about real life is? There's no danger music."

As far as albums go, this one was another non Dead selection that changed my life. I remember seeing Dylan and (I think) Joan Baez - can't remember anymore - singing "Shelter From the Storm" on a TV special that coincided the album's release (again, I may be remembering this all wrong). I knew right then and there that I wanted to be part of the rock and roll concert scene as a fan and I went out and bought the album within the week. No one I knew liked it but I listened to it non-stop between my Dead and Santana albums and still think it is a remarkable album. My favorite "flashback" songs are: "Shelter from the Storm", "Stuck Inside a Mobile with the Memphis Blues Again" and "Maggie's Farm", which is one of my all time Dylan favorites, and also the song Dylan introduced himself to his "fans" in electric version. Another place in time I really wish I could have been while it was happening. I love you, Bob Dylan! "You know what the trouble about real life is? There's no danger music."

Before you retch, this story does have a happy ending. In the two to three seconds it takes my brain to process the opening strains of this piece of insipid fluff and plot and implement an exit solution, I am instantly transported back to that morning school bus ride on my way to seventh grade when I was first accosted by it. I vividly recall noticing what an obvious Sugaree ripoff the verse riff was, and realizing just how much I would rather be hearing Sugaree instead of being subjected to Rod The Odd at his worst. I even recall the DJ as opining that Rod "sounds like he gargles with Sani-Flush." Oh, yeah. That happy ending? Next track over the AM airwaves is Casey Jones... Conversation is always more interesting than recitation, so speak your mind and not someone else's.

I think my auditory recall is as strong as my olfactory. Your eyes would get tired reading my list of songs and/or albums that bring a lump to my throat, the watery eyes and the silly, wilted and quivering smile that evokes questions, from others, if they see it. It's intersting that this forum just started. I've actually been on a kick, lately, of playing my old, live GD tapes that have been collecting dust in boxes since the Dick's Picks Volumes and other great CD releases began. They seem to be oozing with sentimentality. I believe it comes from the people and experiences I had while trading and copying them over. Why did I pick certain fillers to squeeze onto the reel? The sound of tape waver, delay and hiss has an intrinisic nostalgia that is unmatched. I'm flooded with images of roadtrips over the years where The Grateful Dead became the soundtrack from my tape deck- show after show, song after song. If I were to put out an abbreviated list of songs/albums this would be it- starting with the Grateful Dead, first, since this is dead.net. (this is in no particular order- it's as it comes to mind. How can you put a value on what moves your spirit?) *any Clementine/ New Potato Caboose combination *5/22/77- 2nd set *5/2/70 *Downhill From Here- my first shows *Lovelight>Stella Blue>Lovelight (Richfield Coliseum Spring '94- unforgettable!!!!) *any Wharf Rat (actually if I have to pick one it would be the 1st- the Dark Star sandwich is phenomenal [Capitol Theater '71- ESP must work]) *any Comes a Time, Black Peter, High Time or Brown Eyed Women *any Terrapin Station (really goes without saying) *the transition between Scalet/ Fire makes my hair stand on end, and then my eyes water while I sing along and air guitar to Fire on the Mountain I really could go on forever, but I digress. Let's move away from the Grateful Dead and go to JGB ;) *Jerry doin' Dylan- particularly "Simple Twist of Fate" and "I Shall Be Released" *Jerry doin' Cliff- "Strugglin' Man'" or "Sitting Here in Limbo" *"Forever Young" *Some of the instrumental jams from Reconstruction blow me away *Legion of Mary in general Ok, onto the greater world of music: No doubt, Van Morrison drips with nostaligia and sentimentality (geez, he's Irish for god's sake)- *Astral Weeks or St. Dominic's Prevue *Any Dylan and The Band combination- Basement Tapes in particular *Dylan's "Desire" and "Blood on the Tracks" albums *Melanie "Lay Down (Candles in the Rain)- simply one of the most powerful songs of all time *"Green is the Colour"- Pink Floyd *"Don't Let Me Down"- The Beatles *Marvin Gaye's "What's Goin' On" album *Dave Brubeck's "Take Five" album *Miles' "Kind of Blue"- I used to fall asleep to this album every night. I guess my dreams are entwined with it. *U2's "Joshua Tree" *The Cure's "Staring at the Sea (Singles)" *Bob Marley's "Song's of Freedom" (Box Set)- my number one pick for the deserted island and........one more for fun and to make you go,.....hmmm. *Siamese Dream"- Smashing Pumpkins (one of the greatest albums ever) These seem to be just the tip of the iceberg. The wellspring seems infinite. Music has the power to encompass every emotion. It is the universal language. Now, I have to go play some of these songs, and just maybe they'll reminded me of other songs, other friends, other times or other loves. But, if I get confused I'll just listen to the music play. Thanks for posting this forum so I can get feelin' good, finish my coffee and get to work, damnit.

At the exact moment I was reading Hard Rain posted by GRTUD the intro to Knockin' On Heaven's Door came rolling out of the radio...talk about tingling...wooo! anyway I read on as Bob told his story which was often told by Jerry as well. OK, I'm alright but that was a rush! I'm not sure of the history 'cuz my memory is sketchy with some occasional clarity but maybe the Joan and Bob clip was from the Rolling Thunder Revue Tour / Clara and Renaldo film with Dylan in face paint supporing the Desire release and possible film release which I was very fortunate to have seen live on the local tour stop. It featured performances by Bob, Joan, Roger McGuinn, with Scarlet Rivera, Mick Ronson and a stage of great musicians. The clearest memory from that show was when Roger broke into Chestnut Mare. All in all, a wonderful night of great music... And there ain't nothing like those "Memphis Blues". OK I'm not trembling anymore...must have just been "A Simple Twist Of Fate". ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ "Look out of any window Any morning, any evening, any day" Robert Hunter ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A definite favorite in my family. We love the Byrds Untitled album that it was on. One disc was live and one studio. Now in a greatly expanded CD version, very nice. I can go on and on about the Byrds and all the talent that gathered there over the years and moved on to other groups and continues to be around and still putting out tunes.

This song takes me back o seeing Easy Rider on the big screen back in '69. I think I was 11 and felt so cool sneaking into an "R" rated movie with my friends. I either thought I was somehow fooling the guy at the ticket booth by looking like I could be close enough to 17 or that I was sort of invisible. Actually, the guy was just letting everyone in to the matinee. Had my mind thoroughly blown at that flik and a whole new world came into view. Born To Be Wild and the freewheeling lifestyle of Captain America and Billy was forever etched into my mind...out on the road. A few days later, I had my sisters sit up on the roof of our house and watch me ride my bike down a big hill that was across the street while Born To Be Wild was played over and over on my cheesy little plastic record player. They told me I looked pretty cool riding to the music. *many years later I would be riding that motorcycle on my own adventures but retired after a couple of spills...and chills but I'm alright. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ "Look out of any window Any morning, any evening, any day" Robert Hunter ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Saw John Fogerty's "Long Road Home" last night on cable. Sooooo cool that John Molo was on drums for that gig! Anyway, it reminded me of my original core of albums I owned when I stumbled on The Bus, which included "Cosmos Factory" and there was just something about "Run Through the Jungle" that still brings back memories of those times.

High School times. We would be driving down a gravel road out in the midwest countryside on a weekend night and put this song on the 8 track. We would gun the car where there was a small hill with railroad tracks at the top and go flying through the air and try not to lose control when we landed and bottomed out as the car slid on the gravel. Man was that fun, boy was that stupid. When I think about all the similar things that people have done while listening to this song it makes me think that it should maybe be named Born to Be Stupid. I will never get sick of this song. If the doors of perception were cleansed, everything would appear to man as it is, infinite. William Blake

Shawn Colvin's version of "Viva Las Vegas", at the very, very end of "The Big Lebowski" movie is a recent song that (for me) has transcended time and space. It brings me back to my electric daze without ever having been an actual part of that scene. I think it's the fact that the song is a cover of one of Elvis' very popular radio songs which was still very much a part of the music scene when I was a kid and discovering life on The Bus.

Hal R and GRTUD Taking me back to some good old days. I remember cleaning tape heads, the smell olf the alcohol, the sweet smell of...summer...fixing the tapes and sometimes they would skip or break but the breakthrough of having more than radio on the road was so worth it. Love the flying cars story. I can hear the revs and feel that split second of weightlessness that made it all so worth it as the driver wrestled the wheels around. Credence did it up their way. Playin' In A Travelin' Band, Green River Who'll Stop The Rain (still I Wonder) very relevant today; are just a few more of their songs that really jammed with their very distinct sound...and they can take me right back to some great times. Great stuff! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ "Look out of any window Any morning, any evening, any day" Robert Hunter ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Sure takes me back also to hot summer nights after working all day at some kind of manual labor. I thought that CCR could relate to the working class blue collar thing because they wore flannel like me and were "Born on The Bayou". Blew me away when I found out they were from the bay area. Still love them though. Really like John Fogerty's last album. You got it exactly on the flying car thing Marshun.

Among many other memories CCR can invoke, playing their music in my parents' upstairs unfinished room is one. In '72 I was knocked out by Duane Allman and emulated his style as if it were the holy guitar grail! Until he came along. A friend of a friend - his name probably WAS John - and I were playing "Statesboro", "Dreams" and other Allmans' fare when he suggested we jam on Suzie Q. I said, "Yeah?" So he got us going and if I didn't know better I would have sworn John Fogerty was standing across the room. All I could do was stare. When it was my turn, something like "Mary Had A Little Lamb" squeaked forth - aaarghh, I sounded like ... well. Those guitar "competitions" where you'd try to cut the other guy were sometimes very painful, but at the same time fun! Needless to say, he didn't want to play with me anymore - but I thank the guy for further reinforcing my respect for CCR. "Where does the time go?"

where John Fogerty got that accent in El Cerrito. Sidetrack--I don't think Willie and the Poorboys is regarded as one of their hippest albums, but I always loved it, in part because of the cover photo with the kids in front of the Duck Kee Market. Flash forward about 30 years, I'm driving around West Oakland completely lost (it is not that difficult to get completely lost in Oakland even when you've lived here for decades), stop at a stop sign, get that funny deja vu feeling and look up and there it is, the Duck Kee Market. Which by that time had been painted an unfortunate shade of peach, but there it was. I think it still lives, though I haven't had the heart to look.

Hal's post in another topic reminded me of this one, the 11+ minute one on Aftermath. It will forever be the song of dark smoky stony gatherings of my college friends, and I didn't even indulge in those days. Well, no, I take that back. This was around the time that my short-lived (luckily) tobacco habit was launched by the fact that one of my friends had bought some cigarettes he didn't like and insisted it was all of our duty to help him smoke them. But Kevin, I don't smoke, said I. Never mind, said he. Took me two years to kick the tobacco habit. Curse you, Red Kevin! (Not really, I'd love to reconnect with those guys, the ones that are still alive.)

to the Rodney Albin Memorial at what was probably Wolfgang's by that time. Featured the Dinosaurs (with Peter Albin, Barry Melton, John Cipollina, Spencer Dryden and Robert Hunter), along with David Nelson and various other of ol' Rodney's buds, including David LaFlamme. Given the nature of the event, the elder Albins were present, along with many many Dead- and Saur-heads. At a certain point in the festivities somebody thought it would be good to play White Bird. LaFlamme allowed as how he wasn't sure the musicians knew it. "C'mon," says Hunter, loudly and into the microphone, "EVERYBODY knows fuckin' White Bird." And then he got this absolutely stricken expression and looked at the relevant section of the audience and said, "I have to apologize to Mr. and Mrs. Albin for using the f-word..." As I recall, it was a real good White Bird, too.

In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida One of the first songs i was turned on to that was an experience. Everyone would gather round the turntable and then go off in sort of a grooved meditation dance of understanding and interperting the moments and the music. Such fun! I still loved other radio songs of the time and hadn't yet been found or discovered Grateful Dead. This was kind of a prep song for the jams I would later enjoy and experience. In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida was mysterious in its sheer length and trippy organ swirls with spaced-out guitars and an awesome drum solo. What did they mean? Where or what was the Gadda-Da-Vida...was it the Garden of Eden or a place like none other somewhere in our minds... ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ "Walk into splintered sunlight Inch your way through dead dreams to another land" Robert Hunter ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
