Spinning this now. Oade.
Garcia gave an interview to the Boston Globe guy around this time in which he sounds very happy and positive about the Dead. It's stunningly orthogonal to so much of the other stuff going on in his life around this time. But I love that the big fella could just plain have a great day and enthuse about his work life.
And why not? He's fronting one of the world's great live acts, a band that has Philip Chapman Lesh on the bass guitar, Bob Weir on rhythm, Bill Kreutzmann on drums, among others, playing stellar live rock and roll; playing songs written by Robert Hunter
It's good to count the blessings you have, when called to think and speak on what's happening.
The Scarlet -> Fire is a delight, and I have high hopes for the Playin' > China Doll that's coming down the pike.
