Be Grateful – it’s November

And if that seems like an odd thing to say, what with the dark evenings, the deterioration in weather patterns and the general onset of the miserable part of winter then there’s something you’re forgetting. Feel the ripples of joy as, like a moth before a flame, the true beauty of November dawns: yes, it’s the time of the year when 30 previously unreleased tracks escape like post-Halloween ghouls from the vast and uncharted regions of the Grateful Dead’s vaults. Not only escape – but are available for free download from here. First out of the box was an epic nine minute version of Uncle John’s Band – and there’s another 29 more nuggets to go.
