But that's not all! I've been fortunate enough to receive 10 copies of the wonderful book by David Dodd: The Complete Annotated Grateful Dead Lyrics.
Not only does this 500+ page book contain the lyrics of all of the original GD compositions (and many of the covers), but it also contains a huge wealth of background information on the sources and meaning of the characters and references in the songs. Its a hugely fun read, and all you have to do to have a chance to win your copy is to send me an email at: firstname.lastname@example.org
I'll pick the winners at random next week!

As always thanks for your support!!
