Something for all of your senses, Enthusiasts: for your reading pleasure, kinda, is this appreciation of Garcia’s solo(s) from the 5/22/77 Sugaree. The author gets much right, such as the fact than any Sugaree under 15 minutes is by definition a failed Sugaree, but he adopts the Apologetic Deadhead stance I find so irritating.
“I know the Dead aren’t cool–you’re right, you’re right–but I’m not like an obsessive or anything and I shower and on and on.”
To the writer, I respond in the immortal words of Paul Stanley: Do you believe in rock and roll? Well, then: stand up for what you believe in.
Here’s that Sugaree he writes about:
Also, your ears will enjoy Radio Busterdog live and streaming from Terrapin Crossroads, where Phil’s Phriend for the evening is Chris Robinson, who still has no hips.
I cannot help you with the other senses. Probably bit off more than I could chew with the opening. Oh, well.
