View Full Version : Grateful Dead
I first got into them during the American Beauty/Workingman's Dead era (70-71) and in retrospect a great part of the essence of what the early Dead where died with PigPen in 1973. I've listened to all eras of this band and struggle during some to find diamonds but they are there. However I believe the 72-74 period was the peak.
I first saw them 9/24/76 but during and Allman Bros concert in Spring of 72 Garcia & Weir came out to join in Jamming with ABB on "Mtn Jam".
Would love to read the posts of others who explored this genre of Rock....

I never really got into the Dead. None of their songs really do it for me.

Because you suck. If you didn't suck you'd love the Dead, know 911 was a false flag op and believe that HAARP creates changes in the weather to further the aims of the NWO.

Because you are not a dirty hippy. If you were a dirty hippy, you'd love the Dead, know 911 was a false flag op and believe that HAARP creates changes in the weather to further the aims of the NWO.
Fixed that for you.

What did the Deadhead say when the acid wore off?
Man, this music sucks!
But I do dig me some Dead, once in a great while. I much prefer the Garcia/Grisman bluegrass excursions.

Ehhh, other than Casey Jones I don't really care for their stuff

Casey Jones? That is the quintessential mainstream radio pop track. They have much better tunes that haven't seen the dark of disk jockey doldrums.

I've heard some of their other stuff and it bores me actually. I'd rather listen to Pink Floyd.
perhaps a Pink Floyd is needed but in the mean time........I'd recommend Floyd's early 70's live recordings ...I have several.
But back to the topic at hand......i'm still hoping to hear from some aficionados of G.D. and share insights and preferences of different shows/periods.
