With varying degrees of success, Troy attempts to articulate the Dead experience through 16 interviews with the Dead cognoscenti, including former managers, promoters, Dead Heads, and the band members. What emerges from the dull introductory historical narrative of the band, liberal photographic assortment, and question-and-answer interview collage is a scrapbook of the Sixties and the band under whose aegis psychedelic and improvisatory rock music has flourished since 1965. Until the definitive Grateful Dead story is written, this book stands in line with David Gans and Peter Simon's Playing in the Band ( LJ 7/85), Blair Jackson's Grateful Dead: The Music Never Stopped ( LJ 8/83), and Hank Harrison's The Dead ( LJ 12/15/80) as a rock reminiscence of interest to fans; a luxury acquisition.
