what have I heard and what do I know about it?

I’m not a ‘Dead Head’ but I do own their first few albums and listen to them occasionally. After I finished reading Tom Constanten’s biography (Between Rock & Hard Places – A Musical Autobiodyssey…Constanten was a member of the Grateful Dead during the late ’60s.) I pulled my vinyl ‘Anthem Of The Sun’ LP off the shelf and played it. Good stuff. Looking on Amazon and later the Internet in general it took a while before I found the proper ‘Anthem’ image to use here and for good reason. The “White” cover sleeve which I have is apparently a rarity (I didn’t know) and was issued by Warner Brothers without the Dead’s approval. It was soon withdrawn creating yet another “collectable”.

About Marcus

Who me? Introverted, neurotic, self-absorbed, increasingly cynical observer of human nature and part time social critic in hiding. Most of my life spent avoiding growing up. The naive idealistic passions of youth have evolved into the eclectic eccentricities of adulthood. Northeast Florida small-town native, related to people I can't relate to. Simultaneously my own best friend and worst enemy. Politically and spiritually unaffiliated, my personal ideologies put me all over the map or off it completely.
