Lee Johnson’s Dead Symphony has its world premiere performance in Baltimore on Jerry’s birthday, August 1. See story @ DeadNet.

Jewels and Binoculars is a jazz trio that plays Bob Dylan songs. Bob covered “Jackaroe” on World Gone Wrong, so it qualifies. Ships With Tattooed Sails features guitarist Bill Frisell on several tracks, including a magnificent reading of “Blind Willie McTell.” I met Lindsey on a recording session last summer: Tim Carbone brought him in to play bass on half a dozen songs for my soon-to-be-released CD The Ones That Look the Weirdest Taste the Best. I was knocked out by Lindsey’s playing, and really impressed with the Jewels and Binoculars CD.

The Grateful Dead Hour is made possible in part this week by:

Summer ’71 has a full CD of music from July 31 ’71 at the Yale Bowl and a full disc recorded August 23 of ’71 at the Auditorium Theater in Chicago, plus liner notes and rare photographs.

Bob and Phil make a good solid attempt at “Me and My Uncle” about five minutes before the song actually starts, but Jerry and Billy are still out in the far reaches so the jam goes on a while longer. Fun!

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.

M friend Paul Hoffman attended the press conference. Here are his notes and photos.

Here are Bob Minkin’s photos.

Here is Rich Simon’s report from Relix.

Note: The master tape ran out in the middle of “One More Saturday Night,” so I spliced on the end of OMSN from January 10, 1978 rather than fade it out.
