    The concert was awesome as usual, couldn't think of a better way to spend the New Years celebration!

    Raw sounds courtesy of The Great Society.

    There is an exquisite transcendental magic to be found herein with the organ and bass pulsating behind reverb-soaked psychedelic guitar. “Arbitration” is equal parts groovy and cosmic so feel free to relax and swing.

    Capturing their show at The Matrix circa 1968; this is a powerful (albeit) lo-fi recording that has stood the test of time. Straight outta the Haight-Ashbury scene, these guys just oozed psilocybin. Featuring (pre-Jefferson Airplane) Grace Slick on vocals/keys this band shoulda been huge. Nascent versions of future J.A. staples “White Rabbit” and “Somebody To Love” make this concert document a must have for freaks of all ages.

    Jazz on Wednesday. More and more, it's instrumentals of any kind that I'm listening to.
    Jazz being the most of it. Don't know much about it, It all sounds good to me.

    Been doing the same. Listening to "smooth jazz" at the moment actually.

    Good stuff.
    I have enjoyed some jazz over the years, going back to playing the Sax as a grim.

    I had a date in Honolulu recently and wanted to let you guys know that in the back of the Hale Koa hotel, I took her. It’s the coolest little back room, old school, bar. After dinner drinks, excellent desserts, and quality piano/jazz/singing/sax etc.

    I never went there before but it was super chill. Low lights, and smooth. Highly recommended for those who appreciate the seen...you dig?

    A good, authentic "lounge" is hard to beat for a date... IMO

    This is my favorite Dead song. This one was in 73. Some consider the best time for live dead.

    My sister had an incredible record collection and she let me play whatever I wanted. I remember Night of the opera, Toys in the attic and Back in black. I just grabbed stuff because of the album covers looked cool. I do the same with wine. When she got married and moved out she left me her Stereo. My brother in law had a way better one. He also taught me to surf so you know, there's that( I named my 1st kid after him.) Anyway although she gave me the equipment she took the records.
    Somehow Wake of the Flood didn't make the move. Tapes being more of the thing at the time. I wasn't buying records but loved playing the turntable. So I always played this album even though I really didn't know anything about the Grateful Dead. even later in high school and college I didn't listen to them. Went to a couple of shows during that time but it was because of the scene not the music. My Special lady is a dead head. When she found out I've seen shows with Jerry she flipped. She was too young when he passed on. Now I listen to them all the time and go see whatever version of them is rolling through town. When they do this one I'm at the peak.

    I remember one of the last times we saw these guys, it was a good hour into the show and they played this song - and I still remember getting pit of my stomach scared. The vibe went really dark for real. I backed out of the pit and later that night a guy got stabbed pretty good in a corner.
    Just a heavy groove
