We value your input so please make comments at the end of this post.

The 30th volume of the DeadTest™ collection stretches beyond the strict confines of The Grateful Dead to include Jerry Garcia’s side projects on which he collaborated with a host of friends and associates.

Those side projects – like the Jerry Garcia Acoustic Band – provided an outlet for Jerry’s far-flung musical interests, like bluegrass and gospel. If you’re strictly a fan of The Dead, this test could drag you out of your comfort zone. Good luck!
