Personal statement from co-author/editor John Dwork (publisher of Dupree's Diamond News):
For the past two years my partner Michael and I, with the help of almost 100 fellow Deadheads, have busted our butts, putting in literally thousands of hours to bring you a book we feel confident will re-ignite and preserve the excitement and adventure of collecting Grateful Dead music on tape. Our goal was (and continues with the crafting of Volumes Two and Three) to provide a quantum shift in the evolution of this shared experience, to legitimize and document thsi experience in an academic sense, and to provide a good, fun, enlightening read.
Thank you...and enjoy the music!!
