I've turned more than a couple punkers and metalheads with Dark Star from Live/Dead, and they hated the GD, prog rock, and anything of the sorts before hearing it. I did pick the most appropriate situation to drop in on them, though. Patience.
You aren't interesting or clever when you write or speak in the lyrics of others. Rather, what are YOUR words?

dark star usually trips people out that hear it for the first time- you have some pretty open minded friends. where do you reside?
you definately need the right situation to drop it on them
especially punkers...but hey are usually the most open minded fuckers on the planet, cracks me up)))

althea without a net by a large margin
sugaree

Terrapin studio

or JGB version of whatever style they like.

John Kahn playing more traditional plus shows almost entirely full of covers allows a way in for most people

You like the blues ... tore up
jazz so what

A couple of friends that are not deadheads, I have found them listing to shakedown without me being there. That says something.
And I'm going to sit right here until I die

stupid...do you mean studio?

I have also had success with the "Eyes" from Without a Net. That's what got my best friend to appreciate them. (No one outside of my family has a strong liking for the Dead's music unfortunately)

I went to a tiny highschool, only like 80 kids in my class and none of my friends were into the Dead at all, I turned one of my buddies on with Europe '72 and I brought another to every show I could for the last couple years. He's now a major fan, drove all the way to Red Rocks with me last fall!
Live, travel, adventure, bless, and don't be sorry
