Dead Notes #1 :: Good Lovin’ (4/17/71 Dillon Gym / Princeton)

Welcome to the first installment of Dead Notes. There is a raw stigma that runs parallel with the mention of the Grateful Dead. Far too often the circus surrounding the band trumps the actual music, instead placing more emphasis on skeletons, dancing bears, hacky sacks and other vestiges of the 'parking lot' scene. Not to mention Bobby's shorts. But all these images, these tye-dyed pre-conceptions, are the unfortunate characterization of the last 20 years of the Dead's history. Countless tomes have been written about the birth of the Dead, so no . . .
