• Signed Copy of David Gans' New Release, "The Ones That Look the Weirdest Taste the Best"
David Gans is, arguably, the quintessential journeyman on the jamband scene. Best-known as long-time host and producer of the widely-syndicated Grateful Dead Hour radio show, Gans is also a respected music journalist and the author of several books, including Playing in the Band: An Oral History and Visual Portrait of the Grateful Dead (1985/1996) and Talking Heads: The Band and Their Music (1985). He produced and compiled a handful of Grateful Dead-related CDs; including the career-spanning boxed set So Many Roads (1965-1995). He is an accomplished guitarist who utilizes a pedal-controlled looping device to weave multiple guitar parts into his dynamic solo performances. In addition, he is an established recording artist with a handful of albums under his belt, including Solo Electric (2000), Solo Acoustic (2003), and Twisted Love Songs (2007). Add to David Gans’ discography The Ones That Look the Weirdest Taste the Best, his newly-released Perfectible Recordings CD.
In essence, The Ones That Look the Weirdest Taste the Best is one of those really good albums that you know is "gonna get better" with every listen. And, while David Gans will doubtless continue to wear his myriad musical hats and maintain his jack-of-all-musical-trades status, The Ones That Look the Weirdest Taste the Best offers proof definitive that he is capable of creating a masterful solo album when the pendulum swings and the muse strikes.
