Grateful Dead: The Grateful Dead 50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition

Read "The Grateful Dead 50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition" reviewed by Doug Collette

The Grateful Dead didn't always make the most astute business decisions through the course of their career, but the marketing/merchandising agreement reached in 2006 with Rhino Records has been a treasure trove for the label, the band and its fans. And notwithstanding accusations of cash-grabbing, the fact is packages such as Sunshine Daydream and Thirty Trips ...

Logan Metz: The Last Remaining Payphone in L.A.

Read "The Last Remaining Payphone in L.A." reviewed by Paul Naser

There aren't many young players around actively channeling the powerful feel of New Orleans musicians like Doctor John, let alone doing it convincingly.

Grateful Dead: Road Trips, Vol. 4 No. 4: Spectrum 4-6-82

Read "Road Trips, Vol. 4 No. 4: Spectrum 4-6-82" reviewed by Doug Collette

Throughout the entirety of the Grateful Dead's archival series, Road Trips, the graphics have accurately mirrored the music enclosed and Vol.4 No. 4 is no exception. Lacking the plethora of detail in the cover art as well as the usual array of action photos, the plainness of the packaging reflects what's inside. Five years removed from ...

Bob Weir: The Music Never Stopped

Read "Bob Weir: The Music Never Stopped" reviewed by Lloyd N. Peterson Jr.

It has been said before but there really has never been a group of musicians quite like the Grateful Dead. And as the years have passed on, I can no longer, as I did then, take their ability to turn sound into magic for granted. It didn't happen at every performance, but when the heavens opened, ...
