In tonight’s edition, I look at the a few more of the top five events of 2015, recapping Chiron and Borasisi in Pisces, then the three conjunctions of Venus and Mars and the Jupiter-Saturn square. My musical guest is The Greateful Dead, with one song of covered by Burning Spear — and I look at the chart of the first Grateful Dead concert, which was 12/4/65.

I play three songs — Sage and Spirit, Just a Little Light and Estimated Prophet. Those links take you to the lyrics, with notes and background, on The Annotated Grateful Dead Lyrics by David Dodd (in the case of Sage and Spirit, the song notes, as it’s an instrumental). Here is that chart.

Chart for the first Grateful Dead show, at the Acid Test at the home of Big Nig on Dec. 4, 1965. Note, I just went looking for Big Nig's name and found this comment at Dead.net: Tom "Wolfe didn't give it in EKAT [Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test]. McNally didn't give it. Lesh didn't give it. I can't find a single scholar/dissertator in the last fifteen years who's given it." I will call David Dodd.

    The “jam band” is a space.. each holds a portion of the cosmos (..and yeah, Brent was straight up as pure vibe as one could work).

    Smiles man,
