read this cool blurb on Jay Blakesberg photo page

Quote
37 years ago today (09.06.80), Grateful Dead summer tour ended at the Fairgrounds in Lewiston, Maine. It was the "4th year in a row east coast end of summer Labor Day Concert". It was an epic summer. The shows were smoking hot with Brent in full stride, and copious amounts of the best psychedelics anywhere. That summer I saw the Dead from Maine to Florida, San Diego to Alaska and everywhere in between! There were a tight knit group of us that traveled together, slept together, ate together, and had the grandest adventure that anyone could possibly imagine. It was "OUR Summer of LOVE". There were still only a small number of Deadheads traveling for tour at that point... In Alaska we hung out during set break (10PM) on Summer Solstice in the parking lot of the small high school where they played with the light of the day still in our eyes. In between San Diego and Los Angeles we went to Disneyland and had a true psychedelic ride without even getting on a ride! In Portland, Oregon while the band played "Fire on The Mountain", Mt. St Helens was erupting and volcanic ash floated down on our bedazzled brains as we exited the arena. In between June West Coast and August East Coast tour we lived in the Haight Ashbury. We hallucinated in the Panhandle, strolled the Haight, parties at friends houses in the neighborhood, day trips to Berkeley (Nobody for President Rally), hitchhiked to Yosemite, and in there was also a run of Jerry Garcia band shows in SF and the east coast. It was a magical time filled with magical adventures that defined who we are today. If Grateful Dead time travel existed, I would go back to June 1, 1980...and leave on September 7, 1980...We are so Lucky! Listen to the River sing sweet songs to rock our souls...

that haul from Spokane, WA to Anchorage, AK is epic ~ 45 hours. 5 days off between though.

.  1980 is a real sleeper/underrated year imo..
i gotta agree about '80.

listening to 5-16-80 right now. fucking amazing, Alabama> Promised opener is tight as fuck!

Guitarist William Tyler has made a mix of Grateful Dead feedback.

I was gonna ask if you could throw that 10 hour dark star mix up in here you mentioned in one of your shows...but then decided to stop being lazy and find it myself via the google:

Makes sense that they have to give those away.

Sweet, thanks Matt, ordered the Aoxomoxoa so I too can be the envy of 60 year old dudes.

But, I don't think our fans do happily lap it up, I think they go online and talk about how it was a bad show.

Choice
The events in our lives happen in a sequence in time, but in their significance to ourselves they find their own order; the continuous thread of revelation.

I did this the last time they offered it and I wore it once. It was the cheapest, shittiest shirt I've ever owned.
I've been coming to where I am from the get go
Find that I can groove with the beat when I let go
So put your worries on hold
Get up and groove with the rhythm in your soul

Which one? My Aoxomoxoa shirt is not the worst shirt ever.
