A bluegrass tribute to the Grateful Dead and now this?
When there are thousands upon thousands of hours of live Grateful Dead shows, plus a stack of studio albums that are good listening in their own right, concerning the listening of an album such as this, and/or GD cover songs, one question arises -- Why?!
I've never heard of anyone on this album or on the GD bluegrass tribute album that I played not too long ago. I'm not even a huge bluegrass fan and I'm even less of a fan of this type of music. But I think for that one-word question there's a one-word answer that seems to work for me -- curiosity. That's about it. I'm not gonna question why it was made. It doesn't matter if they could have done a better job or should have used any different songs. It exists and curiosity's a part of human nature so I thought I'd check it out.
