DeadTest™ Vol. 39 – Can You Call the Next Song?

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

The 39th volume of the DeadTest™ collection dives into the legendary transitions of a band that could seamlessly blend one song into another (and back again). One song rising out of the ashes of another. Even without a head full of LSD, sometimes it was hard to tell where one song ended and another began.

One thing’s for sure, I’ve never met a Deadhead that didn’t take great (almost annoying) delight in calling the next song correctly.

WARNING: This is one of the tough test – at least a 8.5 degree of difficulty. You’ll need your thinkin’ cap and a well-trained ear.
