    I just finished side one of Wake of the Flood, but CRB's been
    in heavy rotation lately, particularly Betty's SF Blends

    You should. Start with American Beauty, then go backward. When you get to the beginning, go back to AB and move forward.

    I've been trying to learn John Mayer's acoustic version of No Such Thing, via Youtube etc.

    The guy's a great player live...saw him at Crossroads doing Don't Bring Me Down with Keith Urban, and he's terrific on the electric, and from what I see on Youtube, acoustically he's just as talented, if not more so.

    So, I've been listening to this one song over and over, trying to remember the words and chords so I can add it to my repertoire. I already do Daughters and You're Body Is A Wonderland on acoustic, this one has a great pace and lots of fun changes.

    Also, he's got a "GD" influence...listen to some of his live songs, he jams them out. This one from the same Crossroads shows it....4:44 on has him using an envelope filter effect for example.

    That's not very "un"-grateful of you, now, is it? :p

    Wow! This is interesting. I did not think that Deadheads listened to anything other than the GD. There is hope after all.

    I've become obsessed with The Black Lillies, from Knoxville, TN, after seeing them in person last month--especially live (downloads available on archive.org)--incredible songwriting, vocals, tight band and guitar work (noticeably Garcia-influenced electric/pedal steel). I am in awe...

    i have to say, recordings from Bob Dylan's NET seem to be the most viable alternative to listening to Dead shows, if you want to maintain that degree of magic.

    It's kind of a 90/10 thing.

    Maybe 80/20, but part of that 20% is going to been The Dead's influences, like Dylan, Haggard, blues, free jazz. Or its jam band followers. :D

    Taking a break on reliving Spring '90, before moving on from Hamilton to Albany, I've been listening to the new Tweedy, Spoon's They Want Your Soul (both great), Parliament's Gloryhallastoopid, Alice Coltrane's P'tah the El Daoud, the Gun Club's Fire of Love, the Rolling Stones Four Flicks DVD, some David Murray and a ton of randomly shuffled usual favorites on the iPod, which is what I'm doing at the moment at work. The studio version of Box of Rain just came up on shuffle, though, so I probably should not be on this thread right now.

    Will get back to Spring '90 in a night or two, but had to take a break for a week or so, after getting through the first 7 shows of the tour.

    I bought the Complete Pablo Solo Masterpieces a couple years ago, as I'd been meaning to check out Tatum ever since I read the same interviews with Garcia years and years ago. Highly recommended. Now listening to mono version of Dylan's Dear Landlord. Forgot to say earlier that I also listened to King Crimson's In the Wake of Poseidon a couple days ago, in anticipation of seeing them this Friday.

    Good to know; I've thought about that one as well but haven't gotten around to it. Too many large box purchases recently and coming down the pike, but will keep that one in mind in the long run.

    I just took a break in the middle of the Spring 1990 (The Other One) set. (I usually break up my dead-streaks with other music) and have been concentrating a lot on the George Harrison box set, in particular Wonderwall Music and it's bootleg counterparts with plenty of music not on the album.
