"dark star" is one of their best songs or at least i think so.....i got the 10 CD filmore west 1969 and it is awesome....so far i`ve only gotten to the 7th CD....i just listen over and over.....to the first 6.....a dead theme would be nice....but like you said there might not be to many people there but the ones that would come would have a BLAST!!!!...thanks for all the add-ons and posters longwalker...longwalker said:Just got the "Fillmore West 1969" three cd set in the mail today!
Here's an obscure and not to significant quote mentioned in the booklet:
.....,Garcia told an interviewer that on Live/Dead, "We were after a certain sequence,
a serious, long composition, musically, and then a recording of it."
The booklet also mentions something I found interesting, "Two years after they'd begun as a cover/blues band, the Dead began to become The Dead in September 1967, when Garcia began playing a figure that went from A major 7th to E 9th." Hunter was called up from New Mexico just in time to here them working on what he called "that waah, amorphous thing", soon to be known as "Dark Star".
MAY ALL OF YOU HAVE A "GRATEFUL DEAD NEW YEAR"!!!!!
