This book goes beneath everything you know about Mother Mcrees uptown jug champions, the Warlocks, the New Riders, the Pranksters, and anything else that the Grateful Dead spawned. There are a lot of interesting stories involving not only the GD bandmembers, but also others in the Bay Area scene: David Crosby, The Jefferson Airplane/Starship family, et al. Also interesting to read Hell’s Angel member’s perspective of what went wrong in Altamont Harrison also went to see the Dead’s famous concert in Egypt, so there’s some cool Egypt stories in there. Best parts are when he’s recounting his stories from the early days of the Bay Area music scene. Crtain text and photographs are re-used from his earlier edition of the Dead story.
Condition: Very Good. Colour cover and bl/white illustrations with no inscriptions or markings. See photo’s for details.
