Dark Star – Live At Slims
San Francisco 12.15.88

A Henry Kaiser Collection Plug – HERE

The finale of The Henry Kaiser Band’s performance at Slims in San Francisco, December, 1988. An hour-long examination of the Grateful Dead’s space epic, “Dark Star,” with divergent sidetracks and, for this show, a seasonal coda. Around seven minutes into “Dark Star,” it sounds like someone cut the ropes tethering the band to any melody, as they float skyward, before quickly returning with a vocal version of the theme. A fun listen as Kaiser and his pals orbit the mother of all rock improvs (with apologies to “Interstellar Overdrive”). Bruce Anderson (guitar, vocal), Tom Constanten (keyboards, vocal), Hilary Hanes (bass, vocal), John Hanes (drums), Henry Kaiser (guitar) & Cary Sheldon (vocal).
