Jerry Garcia once said the Grateful Dead was like licorice: “Not everybody likes licorice, but the people who like licorice really like licorice.”

杰瑞·加西亚(Jerry Garcia)曾说过,“感恩至死”乐队(the Grateful Dead)就像甘草糖:“不是每个人都喜欢甘草糖,但那些喜欢的人是真的喜欢。”

The Grateful Dead broke up on this day in 1995, four months after Mr. Garcia’s death, and after playing more than 2,300 concerts over 30 years.

1995年的今天,在加西亚去世四个月后,感恩至死乐队解散。该乐队解散前,已在30年间开了2300多场演唱会。

Even Mr. Garcia may have underestimated how long die-hard love for the band would last — or how it would evolve, as seen in a trip through the Times archives.

就连加西亚也可能低估了人们对这个乐队的死忠热爱持续的时间——或者这种热爱会如何演变,这在时报档案中可见一斑。

In a 1973 article, “The Grateful Dead Makes a Real Good Hamburger,” our reporter called the band “experts in the art and science of showing people another world.” Another Times writer liked the band’s “feathery locomotive groove.”

在一篇1973年的文章《感恩至死做了一个美味汉堡》(The Grateful Dead Makes a Real Good Hamburger)中,我们的记者称该乐队是“为人们展现另一个世界的艺术和技巧方面的专家”。另一位时报作者很喜欢这个乐队“轻柔如羽毛般的节奏律动”。

Our coverage wasn’t always approving: In “Just What the Tie-Dyed Crowd Wanted,” from 1989, we noted that “Grateful Dead shows are as iffy as blind dates,” and this year we referred to the band’s history as a “30-year hippie-pirate soap opera.”

我们的报道并非全部是赞许之声:在1989年的《正是那些穿扎染服装的人想要的》(Just What the Tie-Dyed Crowd Wanted)中,我们注意到“感恩至死的演出像相亲那样充满了偶然性”。今年,我们将这个乐队的历史称为一出“30年历史的嬉皮海盗的肥皂剧”。

More recently, the Dead have been praised as music business pioneers. They favored the now common formula of touring over selling records, and were first to encourage fans to make and trade concert recordings.

最近,感恩至死被誉为音乐行业的先驱。他们喜欢如今常见的巡演卖唱片的定式,并且还是第一个鼓励粉丝来制作和交换演唱会录音的乐队。

In 2015, the remaining members reunited for “Fare Thee Well” shows. The average ticket price for some of them was $938.

2015年,乐队剩余成员重聚,举行了“珍重”(Fare Thee Well)演出。某些场次演出的平均票价达到了938美元一张。
