What's up /psy/?

I'm sure this comes up occasionally, but as summer is here, I would like to start a discussion on the Grateful Dead and their music.

We all know that the Dead is pretty much the quintessential psychedelic rock band, but do any of you here feel as if they had actually tapped into something different and more powerful than "regular" music?

I've listened to all kinds of music while tripping through the years, always looking for the craziest thing to propel me into mindspace, classical, metal, heavy electronic music, harsh noise and industrial, but nothing is as wild as listening to a Dead set while frying face.

Try Led Zeppelin my friend, nobody seems to know they are one of the best to listen to while tripping

I've listened to the entire Zep discography on psys
they are good, but don't even come close

the other night when Dead and Co played this at Shoreline, I could have sworn Jerry came down and possessed John Mayer during the solo.

I think Live/Dead and Anthem of the Sun are both fantastic but personally don't get too much into the stuff before or after. I have a lot of respect for them though and I think they're pretty worthy of their legendary status, though dead heads can definitely be annoying as hell (not you OP just in general).

For the longest time, my acid jam when i tripped was always the piper at the gates of dawn and it's still probably my favorite album of all time but i dont flock to it like i used to. it is fucking awesome though and perfect for the psychedelic headspace. Astronomy Domine and Interstellar Overdrive are both flawless songs to me.

I think if your taste keeps evolving OP and you listen to more stuff you will definitely lose the dead love eventually. Not that you should, or it's bad if you don't but as I started listening to other weird psychedelic stuff like Klaus Shulze, Tangerine Dream, Spacemen 3, Bardo Pond, Hash Jar Tempo, and Les Raillez Denudes, that first Floyd record definitely started becoming less of an obsession.

>P-Funk was the greatest psychedelic band to ever grace this earth
>Phil Lesh and the Terrapin Family Band is leagues better than Dead&Co
>The best currently touring psychedelic musical experience is a relatively unknown dude by the name of That 1 Guy
>Ween fucking rules dude
>Primus SUCKS!

ay I was tripping a few weeks back at a Les Claypool show and they opened with Astronomy Domine and it was some goooooooooooooooooooooooood stuff

Also I hate watching Mayer play the guitar, it makes me want to pee

do you specifically have to be on acid to enjoy the dead? i could never get into them, but i never listened to them while tripping.

being on LSD definitely helps, also check out live sets from 87-90

I was never able to enjoy the music of the Dead until I actually got out to the deadhead live music scene

so yes the LSD helps, but the "spirit" of the whole scene is really what's special about the dead

archive.org is a great site for a lot of stuff.

A lot of dead recordings are somewhat mediocre. I do like a lot of the studio recordings. But there are great board recordings.

Have had a few near perfect dead trips. But there is all kinds of music and things to do as well. The dead is kinda a mindset.

If one knows good copies of dead music, as well get high one can get into it.
I have dead stickers and stuff from way back. Not that far back though.
