WGT Bonus Disc: Highway Blues
50 Years Dead When I had finished the eleven disc compilation, there were many songs and moments left over that I felt were important, but maybe not essential enough to the story to include them. I took my favorite leftovers and squeezed them onto a bonus d...

WGT Vol. 11: Smile, Smile, Smile
50 Years Dead Below you'll find the notes for the FINAL  official disc in this compilation. Preceding that, the epilogue I wrote to this compilation serves as a reflection. But is the end or beginning? Fear not, devout listeners, a bonus disc next month awa...

50 Years Dead Phil Lesh  has bladder cancer. Still better than touring with John Mayer. Keep on winning Phil. HERE 's another edition of We'll Get There. We're getting closer to the finale. What tunes will make the cut, and which will be left on the shelf c...

We'll Get There, Vol. 5: High Time
50 Years Dead Spoiler alert: Mississippi Half-Step did not make the cut on this compilation. I enjoy the song, but it's not a favorite. I just haven't connected with it the way I have connected with other songs. Or I've never had a moment with it, possibly ...

We'll Get There, Vol. 3: Laughing Water
  50 Years Dead Deadheads can be an insufferable bunch. We've been given this great gift, and we just want more and more. While we contributed to it's greatness, that only entitles us to a chance, and it can't always be on our terms. You can't make every pa...
