"The Man, The Mystic.......your legend lives on. Teach me your ways from beyond the rock."

DARK STAR...




Notice in this next image the inclusion of a symbol of "light" shining in the darkness...AND, this cosmic offering was served up on my 25th birthday...

The MOON LIFE

"1972 was a big year for both the Grateful Dead and Space Exploration. It was the year of the Dead's infamous Europe '72 tour, and also the last time man stepped foot on the Moon during the Apollo 17 missions."

The Grateful Dead's Ultimate 'Dark Star' To Be Reissued

--a carefully crafted concoction of our 100 performances, drip-brewed into almost 2 hours of extended travel into new spaces...


Here's an intro to this 2014 effort...Check out the reviews...(01:42)

"Allman" are Deadheads...

The Grateful Dead & Duane Allman - Dark Star - Spanish Jam 1970 (26:07)

--uploader has some "grate" graphics...


(Description) From "Searching for the Sound" by Phil Lesh: Jerry says to Phil of the ABB on their way to this show: "make sure you check these guys out... they're kinda like us... They jam hard" Phil was startled when he heard Duane's slide during Dark Star... Jerry hadn't told him anyone would sit in. Gregg "slides onto the organ bench" during Spanish Jam. "Peter Green from the Mac plugs in just as I'm pulling the music into the dominant minor ... he and Duane seem more comfortable in this space." After the show, "I walk outside -- it's daylight, and snow is falling gently on the streets of New York... I grab Bob and Jerry in a group embrace: This is what it's all about."
