Grateful Dead, Road Trips vol 1 no 3: Summer ’71

On April 24, a press conference was held in San Francisco to announce the gift of the Grateful Dead’s archives to the University of California at Santa Cruz. This is not the music and video archive, aka the Vault – that material is in the hands of Rhino Records for commercial release. This is the collection of press clippings, photos, posters, fan mail, publicity materials, etc., lovingly cared for over the years by Eileen Law.

Here is UCSC’s web page about the project. They are soliciting donations to support the project.

Here is Regan McMahon’s article about it from the San Francisco Chronicle.

Here is the New York Times‘ story.

Bobby’s cutoffs not going to UCSC

Tuesday, April 29th, 2008

SF Weekly tackles the important question:

It was initially unclear whether one famous item of apparel would be part of the archive: Bob Weir’s famous cutoff denim shorts. While Catherine Bach may have introduced them into pop culture in her role as the leggy cousin of Bo and Luke Duke in The Dukes of Hazzard, if there’s one person who is responsible for bringing Daisy Dukes — the outrageously short cutoffs — to rock ‘n’ roll, it’s Weir.
