As I'm sure you know, this weekend marks the 40th anniversary of Woodstock..
of course the Grateful Dead played there - in fact they were one of the headliners - yet they thought so little of their performance there that they never had anything good to say about it..
Whether the Dead's performance was any worse than any number of shows is an open question, yet the significance of the event for the culture Zeitgeist is beyond question.. We start this week's Deadpod with a discussion with author Pete Fornatale, whose new book Back to the Garden, The Story of Woodstock presents an oral history of this amazing event..
We then listen to two songs from the Dead's performance that night -
High Time and Lovelight, the latter where the band is joined by a very high Ken Babbs...
Hope you enjoy the show..
