^^^ Kesey's words, wow. The golden silence.






Some RS funnies and a cool Garcia interview:

Wow, fabulous series Kelly. I watched the Jerry one and then immediately clicked on another to hear David Foster Wallace.

Funny how Garcia looks like Hendrix in that photo, and Kesey is a dead ringer for Brian Jones!


What's the last tape you listened to?

Nowadays I only listen to the Dead while driving long distances alone, so it might take a couple weeks to listen to one show. I'm currently in the middle of the "break" between sets in the last show in the Spring '77 box set they just released.

I haven't been all that impressed with the quality of the recordings in this set, but surely there's some killer moments. I'll know more after I listen to the last set in the box.

Before that, I totally dug the music from "So Glad You Made It," a 2 CD set from the Spring of '90. I didn't expect much (Garcia wasn't the sharpest during the band's later years), but Whoa! I changed my mind!! The band is especially crisp and they work their effects to perfection. Full sound, full value, I recommend a listen...


I have a lot of old reel-to-reels, and there's some wicked treasures buried in there (for example, the Go to Heaven outtakes are a gas--including a particularly sweet rendition of Althea). But I haven't listed to those ol' reels since my deck bit the dust. Now I listen exclusively to the officially issued CDs, dang there's so many and the sound is so good, hard to go back to those old tapes.

Happy listening!
