Greetings from Hippie Land

Salutations from the Hippie Land!

it appears i've stumbled into this world of "tight beats" and "fly rhymes" - very different from the world where we don't shower for 7 weeks and sit out in fields for 12 hours, letting the power of the chill tunes sink into our brains and let the sick vibes overcome our bodies. Hmm, perhaps that's just the hallucinogenics kicking in... Perhaps its time my culture extends our proverbial "piece" pipe to the hip hop/rap/electronica world in the hopes that one day we can all join hands, heal the world, save the environment, blah blah blah.

I've been digging through my hippie possessions and I've uncovered something from the history books... ladies and gentlemen, I present to you the live recording of the first ever WILD concert, at the world famous Brookings Quadrangle in 1969. The performers were a little known troupe from San Fran known as the Grateful Dead. For your listening pleasure, the band that needs no introduction... Grateful Dead @ WILD 1969
