Have a Grateful Day....

American economic crisis?
Will the Presidential debates happen tonight?
Is our next Vice-President semi-retarded?
Fuck it all. When the world is running down, you make the best of what's still around.

I'm sitting here listening to this blissful, monster show in Grateful Dead history. 35 years ago to the day. Wow! 35 years and this still sounds fresher than anything I can think of in 2008.

The highlights of this show are many and the sound quality is just superb. Check out the joyous "Tennessee Jed". The gorgeous "Looks Like Rain". A smokin' "China Cat>I know you Rider". And an epic 55 minutes of emotional highs and lows with "He's Gone-> Truckin'-> Eyes Of The World-> Weather Report Suite Prelude-> Weather Report Suite Part 1-> Let It Grow".

This is a Dead show for the ages and the perfect anecdote for the chaos that is American politics these days. Turn it up loud and enjoy!
