I must admit...I'm not (yet) a Dead fan!
    #2449601 - 03/19/04 12:37 AM (12 years, 11 months ago)

*cowers in fear* Don't hit me!

Well heres the deal, I got a lotta respect for Jerry...but I just never really listened to any of the music! In fact I couldn't name a single song if you asked me to. The only song I know I've heard is the one where the video has the band playing but they're all skeletons.

So here's my request, to all you faithful deadheads: devirginize me!

Give me some songs to grab, so that I might see the glory so many of you seem to enjoy!  :smile:

What you know you can't explain,
But you feel it;
You've felt it your entire life.
That there's something wrong with the world.
You don't know what it is, but it's there....
Like a splinter in your mind...
Driving you mad.

Get 4-5 hits of LSD, or 5 grams of mushrooms at a pinch, and listen to disc 3 of 11/11/73 or disc 3 of 9/21/72 (both available at GDLive.com - you just have to download, convert to WAV, and burn). You'll love them forever, as you'll realize their power, depth, and beauty, along with the fact that LSD and the GD go together like peas and carrots.

I doubt I'd love LSD nearly as much if I didn't have GD music to listen to.

If I can get my hands on 4-5 hits of LSD I'll be sure to try that! Such a find does not look likely to me right now though :frown:

The studio albums are great, but to hear the true essance of the grateful dead, you have to hear the live shows. They are absolutley amazing. My favorite is:March 15, 1990 at the Capital Centre, Landover. It was released on a 3 disk set called "Terrapin station" Not to be confused with the studio album terrapin station.

On this show all the intstruments sound huge, and jerry sounds like hes goin crazy on the lyrics, as well as his guitar. Listened to it last friday while trippin on some shrooms. It simply blew my mind.

In my experience some music just sounds like crap when tripping, but the deads music sounds like it was made within tripping. I just cant explain it. Pick up the show, eat sacraments, and fly!

peace

Trendal...

You're not alone!  I like reading alot of their lyrics, but when I listened to a song (only one song, grant you) I didn't really get into it that much.  But it was the same way with Shpongle.  I listened, didn't like it that much, then listened to it while tripping and now I LOVE Shpongle!  So maybe the same thing will happen for me with the Dead.  I think I'm going to try them out while I'm tripping or something here in about a month or so.  :smile:

It's no big deal if you're not a Dead fan. There's plenty of music out there that's just as good.

:gd_icon:  Rocky Mountain News 3-15-04  :gd_icon:

The Grateful Dead is still putting its own archive out. Besides standard CD releases, the Dead is finalizing a deal with Apple's iTunes to make every live note they've ever recorded available for download.

"Everything, sooner or later, will end up being released on the Web," Weir says. "What we wanna do is digitize our entire catalog, our entire collection of tapes . . . and make that stuff available. I think iTunes is up to that."

that would be a lot of money. Itunes should offer some sort of dead head deal. But they won't

I'm downloading the 77/05/25 and I'm really liking it, so far I've downloaded all the songs up untill Peggy-O and I'm really liking this.  I must admit some of their songs sound like long sessions of randomn noise but most of the stuff is good! :gd_icon: :thumbup:
