Those Raising The Deadheads who also follow the band Phish are aware of their tradition of covering complete albums on Halloween. This year, they performed an obscure 1981 album by a Swedish band - that never really existed. Adding to the hijinks, RTD's Dave Martin recreated one song from this set as he imagined it might have sounded in 1981. The recording of "Death Don't Hurt Very Long" went viral among Phish fans, racking up 5k views in 2 days. Now, Relix Magazine has reported on Dave's cover and another recorded by a California musician. Here's Dave's recording, played almost entirely on a Yamaha SHS-10 Keytar.
In rehearsal on Sunday, November 11th, we decided to go live to Facebook with a performance of some Grateful Dead songs. Here's the full video, now enhanced with a soundboard audio mix. Enjoy, and see you December 15 at Cadieux Cafe!
