Summary: Over 250 classic songs by the main lyricist for the Grateful Dead - now updated to include 34 new songsRobert Hunter is an essential member of the Grateful Dead-an offstage presence who has written the lyrics for most of their songs for nearly three decades, primarily working in partnership with guitarist Jerry Garcia. Hunter's evocative phrases and storytelling have woven complex patterns of content through an enduring and much-loved body of music. From "Uncle John's Band" to "Truckin" to "Stella Blue," from "Ripple" to "Dark Star" to "A Touch of Grey," Hunter's lyrics are one key to the power and resonance of the Dead. This anthology collects all Hunter's lyrics-his Grateful Dead songs, as well as those written for Jerry Garcia, Bob Dylan, Jefferson Starship, Zero, and others; and includes an introduction and annotations that explain the sources of some songs and describe the evolution of others over years of performance, as well as a complete discography."A unique talent, a sculptor whose finely sanded lines resemble nothing else on the rock'n'roll landscape." -The Boston Globe"Who would've thought that a book of lyrics without the music could be this much fun? Robert Hunter is an impressive American folk poet." -San Francisco Examiner"So much the literal song of any place I ever wanted to be." -Robert Creeley. Bookseller Inventory # ABE_book_new_0140134514
