Thoughts On The Dead

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

Uncirculated Chain

Something has happened, Enthusiasts. What it was, I cannot say, but something. A chance encounter? A dream sequence leading to a car chase leading to a giant beam shooting into the sky? Was it karma?

I bet it was karma.

However these things start, the end result is a semi-flood of new, never-before-circulated versions of shows hitting the torrents, along with a handful of never-before-heard practice session tapes (one of which included the previously obscure Wanderin’ Man that I posted). Their originator prefers to remain anonymous, but they have been cleaned and buffed by a fellow (I’m assuming, for reasons that will become evident exactly one word from now) named Sir Mick (see?) and if you’re a torrent-type person, then you can go grab all of them here.

(That’s fourteen new-to-circulation tapes in the last two days. Also Bobby’s new album, and Phil did something, I’m sure.)

If you’re not a torrent person, however, you can still enjoy this new SBD of 4/5/69 at the Avalon Ballroom in San Francisco:


  1. When it (looks like) rain it pours…..This is great news. In other news Garcia in that pic looks like an extra hirsute Peter Yarrow.

  2. Now is the test of the boomerang…

    Indeed.. not just quoting a song for effect, I think that is what caused this leak.

    They did not mean now, they meant NOW.. like 2016 now.


  3. Your “Torrent Here” link is actually a link to a YouTube video.

  4. There appears to have been a Charlie Miller SBD of that Avalon show from April 5th 1969 on Is TOTD saying this SBD is superior?

  5. A couple new garcia band tapes too- if you’re into that sort of thing

  6. Luther Von Baconson
