9/8/88. My first Grateful Dead show and the first time I tried hallucinogenics.  The day everything changed.  Super excited to see it show up on a DSO list. 


Not long after Jerry died I wrote a song about the Grateful Dead. Titled it in honor of my first show. Here are  the lyrics. 


“Spectrum ‘88” 


You gave the food of love to those who came to listen. 

We gave it back to you. 

The dust has cleared and your rays they still glisten. 

Your legacy is true. 


A song of love...a song of adventure 

A song to help you get through the night. 

A song so pure it could hold all the answers....to life. 


Thank you boys, you’ve done well. 

I hope you’re proud of yourselves. 

Thank you boys, you’ve done well by me. 


Inspiration bred a wonderful creation. 

It bears no label or a name. 

Belonging to no single generation. 

Were you the players or the game? 


A song of chance....a song of desolation. 

A song to help you see the light. 

A song so strong it spurred on a nation

To new heights. 


Thank you boys, you’ve done well. 

i hope you’re proud of yourselves. 

Thank you boys you’ve done well by me.

Oooh wee! Love when there’s space to be wherever you want to be. Fancy new venue with darn good sound. 


Anyone check out the pre/post party with Lackin’ Some Direction? It was quite a hootenanny.

    • That Lucky ‘ol Sun

      A song that for me totally embodies the relationship between two incredible talents that speak to one another thru their instruments. They both really shine in this one. Heard Jeff do it last year, I think Atlanta, and he fucking killed it.  Makes me emotional to hear Jerry sing it during this era. He was awesome.
    • Deal 9/5/89

      I did both those jgb merriweather shows, alpine and poplar creek. Horn hat AKG 460's > dbx224(battery converted) >d5. The dixie at merriweather, the lonesome at Alpine and the let's spend at poplar were choice. Heading to Louisville this weekend for Uli jon roth , closest thing to hendrix I've ever seen. My first deal was when jg opened for fz August 1984 in Chicago. the studio version is a good listen.

      I love this song. I love the record version, and I love how it changed over the years. There were more than a few hot ones in 1983-1984, then while always good, it seems that 1989 brought out extra hot ones again. I love this one with JGB, its a toss up between this one and the Alpine Valley shows from the summer which I like best from that year.

      Has DSO ever played this song? I would love to hear it live
    • The Motorcycle Song -- Arlo Guthrie
      By: goganious · 02/09/2019
      I once bought a kitten and he just kept meowing and meowing. He talked quite a bit. Then I started stringing up my guitar that evening, and he came over and started pawing at the frets, meowing meowing meowing. I looked at this overly talkative creature who was now trying to play his dad's guitar, and the name was obvious at once: Arlo.  12 years later, he still talks a lot. Love Arlo Guthrie. Such a unique and funny personality. Have seen him a few times. He always puts on a great show.
