I'd always wondered about the different spelling. Plus the whole story was fascinating- thanks, Funky! : )

No prob I always thought it was just spelled wrong by the guys who did my tapes! And I spelled it cassady on my own.

Absolutely fascinating. Thanks for digging up and sharing that treasure.

These parts stand out to me.


This turned out to be the psychedelic nose-cone of the 60's, a rolling cornucopia of technicolor weirdness named Further. With Ken Kesey raving from the roof and Neal at the wheel, Further roamed America from 1964 to 1966, INFECTING OUR NATIONAL CONTROL DELUSION with a chronic and holy lunacy to which it may yet succumb.



Grateful Dead songs are alive. Like other living things, they grow and metamorphose over time. Their music changes a little every time they're played. The words, avidly interpreted and reinterpreted by generations of Deadheads, become accretions of meaning and cultural flavor rather than static assertions of intent. By now, the Deadheads have written this song to a greater extent than I ever did.

More interesting stuff from Levi Asher's litkicks site including this letter sent to the San Jose Mercury by Neal's son, John after Jerry's passing.

Ashers links to lot of Cassady stuff, including Ken Schumacher's link, which includes the Barlow story.
