Greg Davis presents 79 Minute Greatful Dead Mix Pt.2

Easily the worst crime I commited last year was dragging my old man along to see the truly appalling Blues Traveller in concert. I knew they were a “jam band”, popular with Deadheads, but I had no idea exactly how shit they were. Two songs in and at least 4 solos already, neither my Dad or I had the heart to tell the other that we hated it, thus we sat through the best part of a terrible concert, both of us sufferring in silence. When we got outside, we both confessed how awful we thought it was. Sigh… if only we’d spoken earlier, we could have saved our very souls. At least the tickets were free (one saving grace).

Which brings me to the Dead. I’ve not listened to the Grateful Dead for a long while, but I do dig them and when i saw that these sets were put together by none other than electronic boffin Greg Davis, well I knew it’d be worth investigating. Let your freak flag fly to this, muthas. Link via ArthurMag
