Thoughts On The Dead

Musings on the Most Ridiculous Band I Can't Stop Listening To


I mentioned this one last night: it’s the Reckoning bonus disc that came with the Beyond Description. While not quite as exactly perfect as the original release, there’s some real gold in here: two of Bobby’s instrumental, and another Ripple and Bird Song, plus Tom Dooley and Deep Elem from the weird-o 11/17/78 Rambler Room acoustic set.

The only problem with Acoustic Dead is that there isn’t more of it.


  1. True story: from the time I was 16 until I was 19 or so, this was the only Dead music I owned or heard. Made Live/Dead a real mind-blower.

  2. I didn’t know what dead reckoning (in the navigation sense) was until last year….., just thought it was a great name for an album.
