When the long awaited, highly anticipated Grateful Dead documentary, Long Strange Trip, had its premiere at Sundance a few months ago, I was lucky enough to attend and sit in on a post-film talkback with the director, Amir Bar-Lev. I’ve thought about the film a lot since then, and I shared those thoughts with Jambands.

Now that Long Strange Trip is out on Amazon, I’m really curious to hear what everyone else thinks about it.  Please comment and share your thoughts!

And if the documentary leaves you wanting to learn more about the Grateful Dead, here’s a list of some of our favorite books about the band.

As the creative founder of Little Hippie, Taylor specializes in illustration, licensed merchandising & experiential design, being both an expert in the art of the counter culture and a figure in it. Taylor’s artwork has become iconic in its own right, and many of her images are now being riffed on by other artists as part of the ever evolving Grateful Dead lexicon. With over twelve years experience as an apparel licensee with the Grateful Dead, Taylor is well familiar with the ins and outs of licensing contracts, merchandising deals and artist agreements. Not only does she have the ability to create imagery that is at once classic and timely, but she can manage your entire project. A strong leader with a highly capable team behind her, she is always ready to take on new opportunities to grow Little Hippie. Having moved frequently as a child, Taylor developed a love early on for new places paired with an amazing ability to keep in touch with people from everywhere. After graduating at 20 years old with a BA in French & English from Skidmore College in 1999, Taylor spent much of her early adult life on the road traveling to countless concerts and music festivals to promote her business and sell the products she designs. She now splits her time between Brooklyn, the Connecticut shoreline and Northern California. In her free time you can usually find her somewhere outdoors swimming, running, yoga-ing, and riding things down hills or otherwise playing on this big bright blue ball spinning freely in space.
