Diehard Deadhead Yearns for Old-School Bootlegs

Grateful Dead fans can once again easily download their favorite concert recordings -- after the band relented in the face of overhelming criticism. Commentator Jake Halpern wonders if he is the only fan who is disappointed by this news.

Jake Halpern is the author of the book Braving Home.
