Hey, it's the Winter Solstice, longest night of the year. If you have Sirius/XM, channel 32 (Grateful Dead radio) had a Dark Star marathon. Yes, they played different concert versions of Dark Star all day long. It's one of the Dead's best compositions; a long, languid, jazzy/trippy, improvisational, mind blowing exploration of beautiful sound and discovery. If you're into that kind of thing.
