‘More’ by Phish ~ an inspirational  Phan video

I’m vibrating with love and light
Pulsating with love and light
In a world gone bad, a world gone bad,
There must be something more than this

“More”
Phish

Life in slow motion
Feet are in the clay
I’m goin’ nowhere
Been standin’ here all day

I had a notion
There was somethin’ more to do
As I watched the water
From the banks of the river
It swelled and grew

And I tilt to the left
Lean to the right
Tilt to the left
Lean to the right
Walked on coal
And slept on glass
Emit swords of sap
And daggers of light

And my heart is screamin’
Cause half of what I say is lies
And it takes so much to keep up this disguise
It takes so much to keep up this disguise

I see a doorway in the haze
And I’m tryin’ to get to it
The stars are peep holes in a wall
but we can walk thru it

The memory’s still so real,
The memory’s still so real
I guess it’s never really over,
Even when its over

I’m vibrating with love and light
Pulsating with love and light
In a world gone bad, a world gone bad,
There must be something more than this

I’m vibrating with love and light
Pulsating with love and light
In a world gone bad, a world gone bad,
There must be something more than this

The trumpet call is sounding
The trees are bending low
There’s a great fire in the distance
There must be something more than this

And our shadows will all be dancing
With red dust on clothes
When we leave that tornado
Upwards in the clouds and feel the sky

I’m vibrating with love and light
Pulsating with love and light
In a world gone bad, a world gone bad,
There must be something more than this
I’m vibrating with love and light
Pulsating with love and light
In a world gone bad, a world gone bad,
There must be something more whoa…

There must be something more than this…

Vibrating with love and light
Pulsating with love and light
In a world gone bad, a world gone bad,
There must be something more than this

Vibrating with love and light
Pulsating with love and light
In a world gone bad, a world gone bad,
There must be something more

The Letter

Lyrics
Give me a ticket for an aeroplane
I ain’t got time to take no fast train
Oh, the lonely days are gone
I’m coming home
Oh, my baby she wrote me a letter

I don’t care how much money I got to spend
I won’t find my way, way back home again
Oh the lonely days are gone
I’m coming home
Yeah my baby, she wrote me a letter

Well she wrote me the letter
Said that she couldn’t live without me no more
Listen to me mister please don’t you ever
My baby once more
Anyway

I don’t care how much I’ve gotta spend
I’m gonna find my way, gonna find my way back home again
Oh, the lonely days are gone
I’m coming home, yeah
Well my baby she wrote me a letter
Yeah

Well she wrote me a letter
Said she couldn’t live without me no more
Oh listen to me mister don’t jump the rail
For my baby once more
Anyway

Give me a ticket for an aeroplane
I ain’t got time to take no fast train
Oh, the lonely days are gone
I’m coming home
Yeah, my baby she wrote me a letter

My baby wrote me a letter
My baby wrote me a letter
My baby wrote me a letter

US FEST DOC KICKSTARTER: REMEMBER – “BREAKFAST IN BED WITH THE GRATEFUL DEAD”?

WE WERE UNITED IN SONG

REMEMBER – “BREAKFAST IN BED WITH THE GRATEFUL DEAD”?

New documentary feature on the innovative and influential ’82 US Festival with
never-before-seen footage; Mickey Hart interview; campaign live on Kickstarter

LOS ANGELES, CA (November 18, 2016) – The Grateful Dead took the stage in the early morning, Sunday, Labor Day weekend in 1982. It was billed as “Breakfast in Bed with the Grateful Dead”. There were over 100,000 already in attendance. The band ended the show with “Satisfaction”. This was The US Festival.

us-fest

The show was produced by the legendary Bill Graham. It was financed by Steve Wozniak. Jimmy Buffet, Jackson Browne, and Fleetwood Mac followed. The Police, The Kinks, Tom Petty, Talking Heads, and Santana had played earlier that weekend. It was considered the greatest concert lineup of the day. Most who were there, remember it as their finest live concert experience ever. Yet – many who weren’t there don’t remember The US Festival at all, because unlike Woodstock and so many others, the story has never been told in a film … until now.

“It’s a great story,” says Glenn Aveni of Icon Music TV who has produced documentaries on John Entwistle, The Clash, and Les Paul, and is now finishing The US Generation about The US Festival. To help clear additional music, he has launched a campaign on Kickstarter: http://kck.st/2fjAz8u

“Steve Wozniak had co-founded Apple, and come into more money than he could ever spend,” says Aveni. “He thought the 70’s was the “Me” generation and wanted the 80’s to be the “US” generation. He created Unuson – short for Unite Us in Song.”

“He had the vision and the money. The opportunity arose, and he took it,” adds Mickey Hart.

“Fans of the Grateful Dead have always understood uniting under the banner of music,” says Aveni. “Woz wanted to tap into that very mindset, and add technology.”

In addition to the music, The US Festival invented misting stations, was the debut of Diamond Vision, and helped pioneer digital delay. Free water and shade tents were everywhere. The stage was the largest yet seen, and the sound was 400,000 watts. There was a tech pavilion under air-conditioned tents. “Since Woodstock and Altamont – both in 1969, and both operationally flawed,” says Aveni, “no municipality had issued a permit for an outdoor weekend mega-event. The US Festival proved it could be done right, and this set the stage for the events we see today. This was a crucially important show.”

The US Generation documentary is a mix of music, archival footage, and interviews with the crowd and with performers – then and now. Besides the Grateful Dead’s Hart, Stewart Copeland of The Police, Mick Fleetwood of Fleetwood Mac, Eddie Money, Kate Pierson of the B-52’s, and Wozniak himself all speak fondly and candidly about the event. The show did have its share of hijinks, amusement, and battles between Graham and Woz, and the film covers them all.

The Kickstarter is offering the first copies of the film, in digital download, DVD, and Blu Ray, with options for extra music, added commentary. “We’ve gone to town on these Rewards,” says Aveni.

Filmmaker Glenn Aveni lived and worked for many years in LA and now lives in the Milwaukee area where he grew up.

Of special importance to me and Deadheadland, as the US Festival was my introduction to the Grateful Dead live – that 9am call by ny future friend Phil Lesh, to “roll over and spread, it’s  breakfast in bed with the Grateful Dead”, was my first Dead show – I came to see the Ramones, Police and Talking Heads!  Clearly the US Festival changed my life,  and this movie is one I have waited for ever since! Please support the Kickstarter, and stay tuned to DHL for further updates as well!   – Happycat | DHL | (~);}
