Sandy Troy: Captain Trips — The Life And Fast Times Of Jerry Garcia (Virgin £9.99)
Cliff Jones, MOJO, March 1995
IMAGINE BEING able to skip through time and witness historv first-hand. On my own list of happening temporal destinations would be McGoo's Pizza Parlour in Menlo Park, California, one particular Thursday night in mid-February 1964. The Warlocks, soon to become the Grateful Dead, are about to begin their second set of the evening having just wolfed a double dose of Owsley Stanley's latest Blue Phantom LSD. I would slip in unnoticed, order a large pepperoni, slurp on a Coke, sink back into the cherry vinyl and quietly await the dawning of the Psychedelic Age.
