Occasionally I add long comments/updates to old posts, which I prefer to silently revising the posts or making updates in separate new posts. Thing is, hardly anybody will even know comments have been added! (No "recent comments" column here.)
So I've decided to set aside this little spot where, from time to time, I'll note any major new additions.

I'm toying with the idea of also including some of my massive comments on Lost Live Dead and the Hooterollin' blog (some of which turn into posts here). Seems like overkill, but here's a few:
12/31/68 & Recording a Live Album (12/30/11)
The Dead's Disapproval of Garcia's Sidebands (11/25/11)
The 1990 Auditions (Aug '11)
Warlocks Resumes, 1965 (July '11 - see this also )
The End of Keith & Donna
The Hooteroll Story, Continued...
Album Contract Questions
The Stones & the Dead
The Dead, the Beach Boys & the Animals
Buck Owens vs. Frank Zappa
The Mystery of 9/11/69

I've also been posting pieces written by others. I only found a few of those to add, though - I'm pretty picky in what gets included here. But I hope to find more writings worth including in the future. I don't expect anyone will want to specifically write something for this blog, but should that happen, I can be contacted through my comments.
