Complete Annotated Lyrics book to go on sale this month

From BlogCritics:

For your gift list or music library shelf, The Complete Annotated Grateful Dead Lyrics comes with commentary by compiler David Dodd. "Like many fans before him, Dodd spent hours passionately trying to find the deeper meanings in the Dead's songs. In 1994 the Internet may have been in its infancy, but Dodd knew the Web was the perfect to tool to help him annotate the entire Dead catalog. So began the building of his incredibly popular Web site. The fruits of his labors lie within the pages of this encyclopedic book... It is worth mentioning, this book should not be viewed as a cheat sheet, but a tool giving lots of background and cross-references. The interpretations are still up to you. Be forewarned, this book can be extremely habit forming." —Rob Bracco, review
Note: Although Amazon says The Complete Annotated Grateful Dead Lyrics can be shipped today, it is actually not released until October 11th.I've never caught the Jordan fever, so my list is fairly short this week. I'll take the Freeh, and choose one of the two cookbooks (probably the Southern Cooking double-bill). My one must-have, though, is the Sobel Planets.
