“Who are the Grateful Dead, and why do they keep following me?” -Long "New Yorker" article about the Grateful Dead
Licorice lol

Good stuff here:

"The music, even in the standard verse-chorus stretches, often had a limber, wobbly feel to it that struck many listeners as slovenly but others as sinuous and alive, open to possibility and surprise. It came across as music being made, rather than executed. “These guys have evolved a thing where each guy is playing a running line all the time,” David Crosby once said.

“That’s electronic Dixieland.” The music critic Brent Wood has ascribed the sound of it to “the band’s emphasis on true polyphony, a texture heard only rarely in contemporary popular music.

Seldom do rhythm guitar, keyboard or drum parts vary at the same time as the bass and lead guitar. . . . Still more infrequently are all six parts being improvised.”

So you could attribute an aversion to the Dead to a failure of polyphonic appreciation. Or you could chalk it up to taste.
“Our audience is like people who like licorice,” Jerry Garcia said. “Not everybody likes licorice, but the people who like licorice really like licorice.”

Bump for the night crowd.

Polyphony is a property of musical instruments, meaning they can play multiple notes simultaneously.

Great piece of writing, very fair on the good and bad sides of the Dead, thank you for posting that.

The Grateful Dead are really fucking obscure and for serious music obsessives only in Europe, we just didn't have that whole Deadhead culture here as they hardly ever came here. Still kicking myself for not seeing them in 1990 when I had the chance - Tony Blair made it, the dickputin

Listening right now to 'He's Gone' from Dicks Picks One.

Well, they did have 2 drummers and the rhythm guitarist was good enough to play lead.

I think they're good, but peaked with American Beauty.


Most of the 'Deadheads' I know were trippers, just not my gig. Garcia was damn good though, smooth, clean with his own style. Not a shredder by any means, but he could make that guitar sing pretty sweet...

One of the most interesting parts of that article points out that more music is in circulation of the Grateful Dead than any other musicians in the history of the planet, and their archivist suggest there will be another 50 years at least of archive releases. I got an Ed Sanders oo-ee-oo reading that!

Up to the 'Other One' jam on DP1 by now.

Pretty hard for me not to find time to listen to at least a couple tracks from Workingman's Dead everytime I go past it in my FLAC album collection on the machine here.

Bought the album Summer of 71. Never found any other of their albums as compelling, but my brother had Old & In The Way with J. Garcia in 73/74 when rock sucked so bad all there was was Blue Grass or Country. 'Bout wore Old & In The Way out.

Tremendous play order in Workingman's Dead. Every song stands on its own. Timeless. Black Peter, High Time, Cumberland Blues, New Speedway Boogie...
