Say what you will, the keith & donna godchaux era (1971-1979) was, IMO, the last truly significant creative period in the grateful dead's long history. Yes, brent mydland was a more energetic player than keith, but that small gain is negated by many losses, chief of which were the marked deterioration of jerry's singing voice and, more importantly, the loss of his songwriting chops.

Amen, Sixties. I was just listening to Donna and Keith's last show with the band. Truly a banger as the kids say today.

Matt said...

Disagree. They were creating great new music right up until Jerbear’s passing. So many great tunes that never made it to the studio.

Peter said...

I've grown to like Donna. And I agree with sixties, '78 and done IMO.

I just started bugs's jfk book. Page 4 i already have a major problem: he uses "aggravate" when he should have used"irritate".

GreenWhite said...

I watched to court footage of Bugliosi destroying Oswald and lemme tell ya that rotten little commie never stood a chance!

Unfortunately, Bugs and Giuliani have merged into the same person in my mind and their hair dye never stops running down their face.

You're doing the Lord's work reading that book. Please create an hilarious review if and when you finish that notable contribution to American legal history.

Dead fans - Any suggestions for classic shows online that I can listen to over the holiday weekend? Thank you in advance.

The run of shows at the end of Feb into March Fillmore 1969 that went into Live Dead. (The DATs available on the archive are amazing quality, you can hear the electrical current in the air during quiet parts - or maybe my stereo just has ground loop). Feb. 15, 1973 Dane County. Nov. 11, 1973 Winterland. P.N.E. 1966 fun early show (they announce the dead, nobody claps, Jerry says "I see our fame has preceded us."

For some reason I never liked the way any of those Port Chester shows are recorded. The sound is just flat. Harpur is a good one. Oregon is awesome. China Rider, playing, and dark star are great. Another good one is the 1970 show at MIT.

Peter said...

Spotify has some really great recent Beach Boys releases. Smile sessions, Sunflower and 20/20 sessions, Wild Honey seasions. Outtakes feom Today, Summer Days.

Dan S said...

Who gives a sh#t who jackie wants to invite to the funeral? How does that further inculpate Oswald or disprove anti warren commission conspiracy theories? No wonder this garbage is 1600 pages

Thank you, guys. Happy Thanksgiving to everyone celebrating. Doug, we have room for you although I fear Ohio might be a bit of a drive for you.

Dan S - Jackie invited the mafia to Paramount studios where they did Roman Polanski trunk cocaine and had a Roman orgy beneath Lookout Mountain with Anton LeVay and Sadie Glutz when she was known as Sadie McQueen. Jolly West had an elephant sex show.

Dan S said...

I was gonna take a pot shot at jerry west almost being there but i think you did already (jolly was a typo?) Anyway lol.
Seriously is there anything as stupid as the death drive? If that didn't prove what a bunch of directionless morons the mansonoids are....

GreenWhite said...

Jolly West is O'Neill's CIA boogyman. Tom has big fat Jolly shooting it out with Charlie at Cielo bang bang! Sorry had to sneak a little Cactus Jack into your Y-O Thanksgiving lol.

The death drive is as jive as all the turkeys in all the ovens right now.

Dan S said...

It ain'tcool being no jive turkey this close to thanksgiving

Penny lane said...

Has anyone here listened to the Dead and Gone podcast?...if so I would appreciate your thoughts ...

Once I was watching acoustic Hot Tuna at Sweetwater when Weir and Sammy Hagar came in to enjoy the show.

Another time I was at Terrapin Station (RIP) seeing Kiefer Sutherland with his band in the bar. Both Lesh and Hagar were there to see that one too.

Sammy is the unifying force!
