    Ah, the good ole days, sniff.

    I can’t imagine that anyone will walk away from “Long Strange Trip,” Amir Bar-Lev’s remarkable four-hour documentary about the Grateful Dead, without a newfound appreciation for the band’s music and its place in American popular culture.

    So much about the group, founded in 1965 with a heyday that lasted until Jerry Garcia’s 1995 death, is a paradox.

    The Dead hated the recording studio, but are the most recorded band in the world. (By fans, who obsessively circulated tapes.)

    They had relatively few hits (“Touch of Grey,” “Truckin’”), but have sold 35 million albums and played more than 2,350 live shows.

    They had a leader, Garcia, but he refused to lead. “I was aware of the power,” he says in the film. “If I thought about controlling it, it would be perilously close to fascism.”

    The band, as lyricist John Perry Barlow put it, was “a religion without beliefs.”

    “Every place we play is church,” says bassist Phil Lesh. “Every concert is a spiritual experience.”

    “Long Strange Trip” will have a theatrical release May 26, then will be available on Amazon Prime Video on June 2.

    They changed very little over 30 years. Great band that deserves its accolades. Their live Europe 72' album is a favorite among stoners. It's so mellow and perfect to play when you are coming down.

    For those of you that don't mind all 20 minute songs...
    This weekend I just mixed a band out of Indiana called Earphoric.
    not my cup of tea, but some of the better musicians that I've worked with.
    Sort of Phish Frank Zappa Allman Bros.
    Worth the cover charge for sure just to see some really good players.

    GnG,

    These guys?


    I think it would be hard to mix music you weren't into.

    Yep, them. Minus the sax guy. The vid audio doesn't do them justice.
    they played Steely Dan's Bodhisattva & nailed it.

    Well, it beats having a real job.
    You just have to be aware of the style & sort of do what the customer (the audience/band) wants.

    I love slide guitar, but the player in the video above sounds like some science experiment.

    All true faith is regardless religion. As to belief, ahhh, that's a different story.

    True religion (enlightenment, true spirituality) is without beliefs. Period. All beliefs resonate not just from past experiences but from expectations of religious / spiritual/ being good gain and not from simply being here right now. So one tends to review possibilities in review of what has happened in the past. Errrrrrrnttttt. Mistake. The most common one. True religion is a paradox.

    And true understanding of paradox is the beginning of enlightenment.
