Thoughts On The Dead

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

Tabs I Need To Close

At least one of these suckers has been open for two weeks: I’ve rebooted my computer a bunch of times, and accidentally closed out my browser once or twice, but I keep resurrecting these damn links. The Enthusiasts might be interested, I say to myself, and then do nothing at all about that thought.

So: here’s a collection of all (possibly) of the Dead’s videos and filmed shows and whatnot in one easy-to-bookmark location.

And speaking of videos, here’s Jimi Hendrix with the Experience (a truly middling backup duo) at the Royal Albert Hall in February of ’69. You’ll note that the show used for Live/Dead was recorded around the same time; I’ll leave it up to you to decide which band could have blown which off the stage.

And, naturally, we end with a BBC documentary about Marty Feldman.

  2. After carefully reviewing some of what is linked in this post, and having cursorily glanced at some of the rest, I can attest that a lifetime of study would not suffice to do justice to it all. And the way these disparate elements have been welded into a coherent world view! We are in the presence of a master!

    Jimi may be flashier in person, but the music does not take you anywhere close to where the staid GD take you.
