But did you know about his work with the Smithsonian Institution, specifically with their Smithsonian Folkways music label?
Well earlier this week, the Smithsonian released the Mickey Hart Collection featuring 25 albums drawn from ‘The World,’ a series Hart curated that incorporated his solo projects, other artists’ productions, and re-releases of out-of-print titles. Six of the twenty-five albums form the “Endangered Music Project,” a collaboration between Mickey Hart and the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress, which presents recordings from musical traditions at risk.
And on this week's installment of Grateful Dead & Friends, Mickey joined us live to talk about the Collection, his new band, tour and forthcoming album.

This show began with two nice tunes from the famous Keystone 7-10-73 in which from two shows a live album was culled from. This period is arguably Garcia's peak period as a guitar player in which he was playing at a very high level with three totally different bands!! The 'blues' jam exemplefied how alot of the songs were born from with the "Blues For Allah" album, long open ended jams leading to a structured tune. The 5-15-70 is another fine example of 1970 GD and is dedicated to the memory of Ron McKernan(AKA Pigpen) in which 3/8 is the 37 year anniversary of his passing and ironically, the same day as the Furthur show at the Coliseum. See ya' next month!!

Greetings Fellow Space Travelers!
Well, Here we are at the end of February! My Oh My how time flies! We began this busy broadcast period with a cut dedicated to the late Doug Pete, who was a real fan of the song "Into The Mystic". In his honor, we aired the cut from a KSAN fm broadcast from 09-05-71 featuring no other than Van Morrison. Introducing "Van The Man" was Tom Donahue. After that, we celebrated the 41st anniversary of the Ultimate Dark Star recorded on 02-27-69 at the Fillmore West. This is the Dark Star that all Dark Stars are compared to. This steller recording was circulated long before the release of the box set documenting the famous 1969 Fillmore West Run, and still stands tall to this day.The segment began with a beautiful Mountains Of The Moon, and glided effortlessly into the familiar notes of Dark Star that most deadheads recognize in the form of the album "Live Dead". Tom (Chiles) and I felt privilaged to be able to once again bring this wonderful version of Dark Star to our listeners, especially since it is the anniversary of the performance. Grateful Dead just doesn't get any better than this!!! Next up, we ventured back to the year 1989 to relive a Henry J. Kaiser show recorded on 02-05-89. This recording really reflects the "funky" atmosphere of the Kaiser (formerely known as The Oakland Auditorium). The band truly feels right at home here in front of a "hometown audience", and that comes through the music as well! This show features the breakout of two new songs. In the first set "We Can Run" had it's debut, and in the second set, "Standing on the moon" made it's first appearance. Many listeners called in to comment that "We Can Run" was the worst that they had ever heard. My guess is that the song was so brand new that it had not even been played more than maybe two times. One of the legendary aspects of Grateful Dead is the fact that they were not afraid to try out very new songs in front of thousands of people. Sometimes it worked, sometimes not! After a "Memphis Blues" tease, Weir played a very nice version of "Desolation Row" that really made me forget all about the sloppy reading of "We Can Run". This recording was downloaded from www.bt.etree.org and was our Download Of The Week. I would like to remind all of you that we will have our 12 hour Grateful Dead Marathon on May 1st, and it will once again be a "Listener Request" fueled event. Submit your request by April 1st. to email@example.com . We look forward to hearing your requests, and "show stories"! See you next month!
Today's show features the 'unofficial debut' of the Wall of Sound, and draws upon the entire 3-day run. See some cool video of the Wall being set up here, which also includes Phil, Bobby & Jerry messin' around. Here's Wikipedia's link for the Wall, as well as some more great photos and plenty of technical specs.

This week I mainly delved into the fantastic year of 1972. The 'sug mags>NFA' is a textbook example of the groove the band was in during that time. the 10-24-72 has a rare 'Hes Gone' out of a nice 'O1' space!! Please stay tuned for more surprises next month!!

Ah yes! It's that time again! Time to raise funds! This cycle, Grateful Dead And Friends had only one fundraiser show, and it was on my show! Tom Chiles was a bit under the weather, so he couldn't be with us for this gala event. Look for him on our next show on February 27th. We began our show with the opening pair of tunes from June 20th at the Berkeley Greek. Midnight Hour, and Mississippi HalfStep. Next, we journeyed to Laguna Beach, California - Irvine Meadows 4-14-85 - I Need A Miracle > China Cat > I Know You Rider. After more fundraising and highjinx with the gang, we sampled some Old and in the way from 6-6-73 Capitol Theater - Passaic, N.J. As an enticement to the phones, we went back to Irvine Meadows. This time we sampled 4-13-85. We played the first 4 songs from set one. To close out the show, we broke from tradition, and played a request for someone very dear to me. My Wife Susan. For her, Moody Blues - Dawning Is The Day. Susan is recovering from a broken shoulder. We will see you again February 27th on Grateful Dead And Friends.
Can you believe it? Another week without any Grateful Dead. Well fear not, as I have 2 solid hours of fantastic solo Jerry Garcia Band for you today. And believe me, you'll hear plenty of awesome Grateful Dead from me during 2010.

I decided to play some rare stuff this week not only in content but with the style of playing. A great studio jam involving 'mystery train>who's lovin' you tonight' is good in my book!! This was recorded during the "Reflections" sessions and another type of jam that is similar but shorter can be found on the JGB Rhino box set. The jam from 5-20-71 is truly unique in every way and captured how brilliant Jerry truly was from a musical standpoint. The 7/18/72 'truckin>dark star>comes a time' personifies how high of a level the band was after the epic Europe tour. this period is arguably his peak lasting through 1973 as a guitar player. More 1972 next month!!
