>From Lenny Kaye's notes to the reissue of "Live/Dead" in the new 12-CD
"Golden Road" collection.

Reviewing "Live/Dead" for "Rolling Stone" in the shadow of the '70s, I
made
some noises about how, if you'd like to see a place where music will be
in
five years, this was where to find it. I was off by a year. On November
10,
1975, the anniversary of Arthur Rimbaud's death, an album named "Horses"
was
released, and though the band that flurried through it was part of
another
bohemian generation, their sense of endless improvisation had been
encouraged by the Dead's collective energy, commitment, and interstellar
cosmology. All praise be.
