  66. "Comes a time" has always pulled my emotional strings. I mean "got to make it somehow, on the dreams you still believe." Honestly makes me want to tear up just those two lines. Life and love can be hard. this song speaks to faith and hope that we will find happiness

    ReplyDelete
  67. I'd have to say LOSER is my favorite. After years of struggling with addiction I got help and got clean and sober. This song really strikes a tone with me. I'm coming up on 6 months clean and have never felt so good! I've replaced my old addiction with a new one.. collecting art and gig prints! And Mr. Welker is one of my favorite artist! Gl all and thanks for this chance!!

    -Jennings Marcus

  97. My favorite album, as cliche as it sounds, is definitely American Beauty. Doesn't matter where I am in life or what time of year it is, every time I listen to it I feel like it's summertime and I'm 17 years old again. The beautiful mix of folk, rock and psychedelia is so far up my alley that I don't think there will ever be an album that resonates with me as much as this one does.

  98. Cassidy - Thanks for the chance!

    ReplyDelete
  99. Wow! Thanks Mr. Welker! Aaah, so, if I had to choose a GD favorite, I'd say "Two From the Vault", a live one from 4.23-24.1968 @ the Shrine Auditorium. Absolute gnarly, smokin' hot show featuring an incredible Dark Star->St.Stephen->the Eleven, and on and on and on. New Potato Caboose! It's a beauty from start to finish. The fellas were hungry these nights, and I'm grateful they released it on vinyl, which has enabled me to hear things I've never heard before, i.e.: Bobby making wise cracks in the rest in St. Stephen, etc. Good, good stuff. Kinda like your art work. Anyways, many thanks Mr. Welker for this opportunity and for the amazing work you put out. Many thanks and much respect.

  111. Europe 72 has always been my favorite album. Thanks for the opportunity!

    ReplyDelete
  112. I'm going to have to say Truckin'. I know it's probably considered by many to be a big hit song and therefore cliché but for me it will always remind me of come to the US on a working holiday visa from New Zealand in the mid 90s of spending much of a summer working in a friends back yard in Oregon building a lawn irrigation system. In between listening to Neil Young's Mirror all we'd flip Grateful Dead tunes and this track maybe 2-3 times a day
