Slingshotted into an American Vortex
This week on Elliott’s Podcast I discuss the sometimes vague influence that the Grateful Dead has had on my life. This is done by examining a night when I was ‘slingshotted’ into a vortex in America, so you’ll have to listen to find out what that means.
Questions for discussion:
What was the impact of the Grateful Dead on your life?
Have they made absolutely no impact on your life?
If you are a Dead fan, what is your favourite show that you can link to in the comments?
If you are not a Dead fan, who is the biggest Dead fan that you know of? Are they still able to count from 1 to 10 without missing any numbers?
Four Track Snack Pack
I heard this Dinah Washington song What a Difference A Day Makes on the radio this week and I was just floored by how beautiful it is. I also included a track by Vulfpeck who are sort of leading the charge on funky jam bands these days.
What a Difference A Day Makes - Dinah Washington
Let’s Go Let’s Go Let’s Go - Hank Ballard
I Ain’t Never - Webb Pierce
Fugue State - Vulfpeck
Or listen on YouTube.
Happy Sunday and i’ll see you soon.
