Other blogs are making much today of the rumoured 'death' of the Decca label. It is a non-story for me.
More on that non-story here. If a search engine brought you to this post, all is not lost.

...and on top of the circus like atmosphere,the main thing about a Grateful Dead concert was the simple fact that it was FUN.Wonderful, sweetly ridiculous fun.Don't know,but all the brow knitters seem to miss this part of the equation.
