Dead words live

(3 out of 5 stars)
"Picked up this cd , which is out of print because I knew that Robert Hunter was the grateful dead lyricist. With the addition of John Cipollina of Quicksilver fame and Jorma k. from the airplane and Merl saunders on keyboards what a mix! The only weak link is Robert's vocals a few are melodic but some are strained. The true meat of this mind meal is the the words themselves which flow like lavender scented honey. The background music is good country rock almost New Rider with out the pedal steel on every cut. I would have to say that this Rock novel, it has a plot line throughout is still for serious dead heads and 60's music mavens.It is easy to see where the words came from for alot of great Jerry's kids songs."
