The Grateful Dead   Leave a comment

I spend a lot of time dealing with Grateful Dead shows. Having felt compelled to jabber here about particular gigs of note, I have reached the following conclusion:

If you are still reading this, you are probably some sort of Dead Head, and already know plenty of places to read other people’s rap about the band and their performances. Likely, the only real help I can provide is pointing you toward a gig worthy of keeping a copy, and including a source/show ID number. So…

Instead of a bunch of digital scribble about Grateful Dead shows, you are simply getting a list what I think are Shows Worth Having, with those in red considered Essential. And a few words of warning: My ideas on essential differ quite a bit from David Fricke’s…

What is listed here may or may not be a whole show, and possibly a “Friends And Relations” gig. The list will get updated from time to time, which may include deletions. After all, this is not The Lost Sailors Pub…

Here’s to not dominating the rap, Jack.
