Today in Grateful Dead History: September 21, 1974 - Palais Des Sports, Paris, France

I encourage all of you who bash Bob Weir to listen to this show immediately.  Unfortunately, Bob’s guitar is almost completely absent from this recording, which makes the rest of the Dead sound like a very hollow version of the Jerry Garcia Band with a better bass player.   272 more words

Today in Grateful Dead History: August 29, 1983 - Silva Hall, Eugene, OR

1983 has drawn the short straw on this site, with fewer entries than any year except for 1967.  I don’t know why I’ve ignored 1983, but we’re going to make up for it this week, with the first of three shows in a row from Eugene, Oregon. 267 more words

"Sometimes the songs that we hear are just songs of our own"

There’s more to this blog than the occasional feeble attempt at humour.

Not much more, admittedly, but nonetheless…

Anyway, be assured that I don’t spend all my time sitting in front of my computer screen trying to multi-task by virtue of combining the two activities of blogging and shirking anything that might involve physical effort. 456 more words

Today in Grateful Dead History: February 3, 1978 - Dane County Coliseum, Madison, WI

A healthy chunk of this show was used on Dick’s Picks #18, the Grateful Dead’s first release of 1978 material as a part of that live series, which says that the powers that be thought that this was something special.  498 more words

Today in Grateful Dead History: January 14, 1978 - Bakersfield Memorial Auditorium, Bakersfield, CA

I don’t have a lot to offer when it comes to this show.  I can tell you that none of the recordings are particularly great, audio-wise.  123 more words
