Afternoon Aural: Grateful Dead
From the editor: Regular readers know that I have a hard on for the Grateful Dead, a hold-over from my idealistic college days and, in fact, influenced by my older sister, who was a hippie for too many years to mention.

Well, this happens to be one of my favorite Dead tracks, “It Hurts Me Too.” If you’ve got a friend in need and can’t find empathetic words, send them this track.

Sure, it’s about romance, but can easily be applied to other situations, like when their stash gets snatched.

After the jump: “China Cat Sunflower.”
