    Silence is the wit of fools………

    Yo!!! Rockers!!!!

    And so it begins. Fifty years ago today. Acid Month. Twenty shows in twenty-six days, culminating in the fine, final Fillmore East shows of April 25-29, 1971. With stops at Franklin & Marshall College, Bucknell University, Allegheny College, Princeton University, SUNY-Cortland, and Duke University, the Dead do their best to promote “higher education”. Winning new fans, perhaps baffling some by playing lots of things that hadn’t been officially released yet, bringing their psychedelic Bakersfield roadshow to lots of impressionable young minds. Was it was the last great blast of the original quintet???

    Good old Grateful Dead. Were they a rock band? The mutant offspring of Merle Haggard? Weren’t they a jam band in a previous life? What were they, exactly???

    Acid Month is sonically very well preserved. Like a fine wine, now it’s time to pop the cork! If you need or want, here I is! And if you’d like some light reading material, you know where to find me……………

    Gentle reminder----I never joke about 1971…………..LOL!!!!

    Rock on!

    Listening right now to "Boot Liquor" on Somafm.com, been listening to it since 2009. Music from San Fran for "cowhands, cowpokes, and cowtippers" as they say. Plays 24/7, no commercials, has a scrolling playlist of the songs & artists, a great source for new and old Americana music, and to hear new bands/singer-songwriters . . . like the best of the old free-form FM days. Try it . . .

    With love and patience, nothing is impossible

    50 years ago today…………….

    January 21, 1971
    Freeborn Hall, University of California, Davis, California

    Set 1: Cold Rain & Snow-Me & My Uncle-Smokestack Lightning-Truckin'-Dire Wolf Hard To Handle-Sugar Magnolia (missing from circulating copies)-Black Peter (missing from circulating copies)-Mama Tried-Around & Around-Cumberland Blues-Casey Jones

    Set 2: That's It For The Other One >Cosmic Charlie-China Cat Sunflower >I Know You Rider-
    Uncle John's Band (missing from circulating copies)

    One of the great unknown shows of 1971. Oh, to be stuck between the end of 1970 and Port Chester! Considering the taping technology available at the time, the longer (but still not complete) circulating version is a “not bad” audience recording that is actually “somewhat listenable”. The highlights include the coupling of Smokestack Lightning and Truckin’ (with Pigpen blowing some harmonica on both—a very rare occurrence), a typically hot 1971 Hard To Handle, a strong (and rare-for-early 71) complete Cryptical/Other 1/Cryptical suite, nicely transitioning into the only Cosmic Charlie of 1971. Plus rare performances of Dire Wolf and Around & Around (both played only three times in 1971).

    A short soundboard portion (Mama Tried-Around and Around-Cumberland Blues-Casey Jones) does circulate. Wonder what happened to the rest, is it hidden somewhere in the vault? Worth a quick listen………….

    For a more detailed analysis, see

    OK, I don’t listen to it often, but I’m glad I have it…….

    Rock on,

    Doc

    I am listening to good news…

    I am listening to good news by Mac Miller. Mac Miller was a great artist but sadly left us so early. I still remember when his swimming album was released I was so excited I bought its self care shirts ( https://macmillermerch.net/shirts/ ) and his posters to celebrate its arrival. I still cant believe he is no more with us. In such a short span of time he made his name in the field of rap music.. Here is my favourite song of him.

    Juice Wrld Songs

    I am currently listening to Lucid Dreams by Juice Wrld. He was a great singer, when this song was released I wore his 3d 999 shirts (https://juicewrldmerchandise.net/shirts/) as I was so much excited as a fan. Unfortunately, he left us so early but made his name in such a short span of time. Here is the music video.

    Come you masters of war
    You that build all the guns
    You that build all death planes
    You that build all the bombs
    You that hide behind walls
    You that hide behind desks
    I just want you to know
    I can see through your masks

    You that never done nothin'
    But build to destroy
    You play with my world
    Like it's your little toy
    You put a gun in my hand
    And you hide from my eyes
    And you turn and run farther
    When the fast bullets fly

    And I hope that you die
    And your death'll come soon
    I'll follow your casket
    In the pale afternoon
    And I'll watch while you're lowered
    Down to your deathbed
    And I'll stand over your grave
    'Til I'm sure that you're dead

    Alex Jones & Tim Dillon; Joe picked an evil month to go sober lol. That said, the power structure of this dimension is most foul. Happy Halloween!...
