In 1974 Fresh Air music critic Milo Miles went to a Grateful Dead concert in athletic field house at the University of Montana, a venue that presented some acoustic challenges. The solution? The enormous Wall of Sound. You can now hear the set on a new live album, Dave’s Picks Volume 9: 

"At every other arena show I had heard, the only decent-sounding place to be was right in front of the stage. Awed by the Wall of Sound I walked all around the Harry Adams Field house and it was like Jerry Garcia was picking guitar right next to me. There have been complaints that the Wall of Sound slighted vocals or had distinct tinniness. None of that is evident in the gorgeous sound mix of Dave’s Picks Volume 9. It was particularly satisfying to confirm that the version of the then-unreleased “U.S. Blues” was as fresh and forceful as I long remembered.”

nilesun:

Akhenaten known before the fifth year of his reign as Amenhotep IV (sometimes given its Greek form, Amenophis IV, and meaning Amun is Satisfied), was a Pharaoh of the Eighteenth dynasty of Egypt who ruled for 17 years and died perhaps in 1336 BC or 1334 BC. He is especially noted for abandoning traditional Egyptian polytheism and introducing worship centered on the Aten, which is sometimes described as monotheistic or henotheistic. An early inscription likens the Aten to the sun as compared to stars, and later official language avoids calling the Aten a god, giving the solar deity a status above mere gods.

Aten is the disk of the sun in ancient Egyptian mythology, and originally an aspect of Ra. The deified Aten is the focus of themonotheistic religion of Atenism established by Amenhotep IV, who later took the name Akhenaten in worship and recognition of Aten. In his poem “Great Hymn to the Aten”, Akhenaten praises Aten
