I Love Grateful Dead like I enjoy breathing...   I have always loved the "Can You Pass The Acid Test" poster. The Viking... ha ha! I have a black and white copy but have never seen it colored in blue. Was this the original color of the poster? Pete the man who despite 2 assassination attempts is still here alive and living! Hooray!
