Haight-Ashbury became the epicenter of this new and exciting .

Haight-Ashbury became the epicenter of this new and exciting counterculture. By the end of 1966, the streets were full of people dressed in brightly colored clothes (once deemed outrageous costumes), with long beaded necklaces, velvet vests, and feathered hats. It was a culture created by spirited, freethinking radicals that longed for social activism, peace, and the opportunity to march barefoot in the streets to the beat of love and freedom. Or, more accurately-to the beat of The Grateful Dead. The Dead, now synonymous with Haight-Ashbury, were then just a small time band with a humble hometown following.

The author, Hank Harrison was a close associate of the Dead back in the embryonic phase in the mid sixties. Some folks complain that the Keruac-esque style Harrison utilized writing the book is annoying. As I have read some Beatnik works, it doesn't really bother me. 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 (Hmm... had no idea before reading this book why Hell's Angels were so ticked off at Mick Jagger). Also, a lot of great interviews with the Dead bandmembers and interesting stories about Keith Godchaux punching out a Secret Service Agent and getting arrested for it. 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. Now I want to get his other book too, Book Of The Dead.

This book not only stylish and vintage was a great gift for a friend of mine who gave me mad props on the pages. What a deal on the price worth millions to the recipient

Hank gets e-mails every week looking for copies.
Disregard the biased review. Garcia hated Harrison. Nobody else did.
Hank was down on Garcia's heroin and Craque /Freebase and tobacco abuse.
Hank says Jerry's dope addiction set a bad example for the Deadheads.
Hank is still alive, no transplants. He looks about 50 but he's almost 80 and he's still writing and lecturing.

This 1980 book is Hank Harrison's second documentation about the world that surrounds The Grateful Dead. Along with this volume I still have my copy of: "The Dead Book" from 1973, Hank's first book on this subject.

As certain text and photographs are re-used from his earlier edition of the Dead story, I would say Hank learned to recycle long before the rest of us. This as was the 73 Book, never ever considered a straight-up rock-bio of the band. But, it IS interesting and from Hank's viewpoint it is at least a very entertaining look at this world of Deadness by way of extreme weirdness {almost in the style of the Beat Journals from the 1950's}.

Most reviews of: "The Dead" slighted this book as being too mainstream when they compared it to the 1973 edition, and there is a bit of truth found there as this volume isn't as far out there as "The Dead Book" but as a side-trip for this observers insight into Planet Dead, this 1980 book works well.

*Special Note* My copy was signed by the author at a place called: "The Archives Catalog" on Geary Blvd, San Francisco way back in 1980.
Alton Kelley's: "Flying Eyeball" cover design is very cool.

I gave it +1 star because I've never read it. I'm writing this review based on what Jerry Garcia said of these books and Hank Harrison. This book is utter bs. Jerry garcia answers a callers question in re. to this book and Hank Harrison in the following interview - [...] - please fwd to 13:55 in. Jerry totally disregards Hank and his books. Total fallacies about their lives and the scene, which Jerry said was "maddening" when someone reports on your life with such outrageous inaccuracies. If they take this link down search "Jerry Garcia on Rockline Radio 1982" for reference to this video interview.

Funny how after a couple of decades, attitudes change! I bought this book back in 1981, I think, and didn't really like it all that much. There weren't ANY books about the Grateful Dead back then, except Harrison's initial '73 book "The Dead", so Dead Head expectations were pretty high for this book, as I recall. I remember the band being asked about this book during an interview and the official take was that they "collectively" thought it sucked. If you never toured with "The Boys" and want to learn about the Dead and that scene, I suggest reading these books: "The Official Book of the Deadheads" by Paul Gruskin; "Playing In The Band" by Blair & Regan Jackson; "Searching for the Sound" by Phil Lesh; and "Long Strange Trip" by Dennis McNally. If you really want to dig for more info on the Dead scene, check e-bay for old issues of "The Golden Road" (the best Grateful Dead fan 'zine published) or Relix issues from the '70's.
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 Dead spawned, or spawned the Dead. Cassady, Kesey, Mountain Girl...it's got the whole bunch. I highly recommend this book to any DeadHead, just to test your knowledge, or to a casual Dead listener, to inform them, it's a great read.
