When Donna Jean Godchaux found herself singing back-up in the band that year, a new vista for her vocal approach was thrust upon her.
Keith was going to college, of a fashion, and I was working and I got home from work one day, and I said, "Let's listen to the Grateful Dead." Keith said, "I don't want to listen to it.
Keith and I went down there and when Jerry was leaving the stage for a break, I just tugged on his arm and said, "My husband and I have something we want to talk to you about." And that was it.

While not a founding member, nor was she with the band for too long, a female voice belting out "Dancin' in the Streets," or any Dead tune for that matter, was an oddity in itself after almost a decade of all-male singing.
Godchaux started out as a session singer in Muscle Shoals, AL, then moved on to Memphis and Nashville and then finally to the West Coast.
Her involvement with the Dead started after her husband, Keith Godchaux, decided he wanted to join the band after seeing them at a West Coast gig.

 Chapter Twelve Additions   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-09)
In his teen years, Keith landed jobs "wearing dinner jackets and playing acoustic piano in country club bands and Dixieland bands," and then began to form his own trios and quartets to play in local bars and nightclubs, even though he was still technically underage.
She and Keith were part of the same pot-smoking, psychedelics-imbibing social circle for a while, and together they went to a number of Grateful Dead shows and spent hours listening to the Dead's records.
When Keith and Donna got together romantically, Keith was just beginning to play a little rock 'n' roll piano, but he was still mainly a jazz musician, and beginning to tap into the jazz-rock fusion styles of players like Chick Corea and Herbie Hancock.

I think keith was every bit as talented as Brent, but did not have Brent's sense of exploration to use other sounds, expand his abilities, and enhance what the rest of the band was doing.
In the end, it's not Donna's "fault" that Keith was asked to leave; and Keith, ironically, was heading down the very same path w/substance abuse that eventually took Brent's life.
What happened (Keith and Donna being asked to leave) was somewhat inevtiable...what's clear is that each era from the '60's through the '90's (well, the EARLY 90's anyway) contain terrific music from the world's greatest live band, and each era showcases a unique and beautiful sound.

 The Grateful Dead
The lineup is a little unusual here; Mickey Hart wasn't on the tour, and the pianist/singer husband-wife team of Donna and Keith Godchaux made its first appearance.
Produced by Keith Olsen, this was their first gold album of new material since Europe '72, and it also cracked the Top 40.
Not a lot to brag about, but then there's the second side: a sprawling, yet highly entertaining suite called "Terrapin Station Part 1." Paul Buckmaster contributed the orchestral arrangement, which sets up a bizarre conflict between his brassy British bombast and the band's mellow, tuneful, shuffling late 70s groove.

Keith played piano in East Bay clubs until he met Bill and Jerry at Keystone Korner in 1971.
A masterful stylist, Keith playing included jazz and classical touches that helped fill the sound through the mid-1970s (particularly important through Mickey's performing hiatus).
By 1979, however, the Godchauxs' musical inclinations and personal issues led them -- by mutual agreement -- to a parting of the ways with the Grateful Dead.

 JamBase | DICK'S PICKS #35: THE HOUSEBOAT TAPES
It seems that in the late summer of 1971, just before Keith Godchaux began rehearsals with the Dead, Garcia handed him a big box of tapes and said, "Here, this is our most recent tour.
Learn our music." The irony was that Donna Jean doubts mightily Keith ever bothered to listen to them - he'd never listened to the Dead all that much before he auditioned, first with Garcia and then the rest of the band - he just had an uncanny innate facility for the music.
In Phil's book he talks about how keith loved the band so much that he was shy to approach Jerry or any member of the band about possibly playing with them.

 The Music Box: Grateful Dead - Steppin' Out with the Grateful Dead: England '72 (Album Review)
The Grateful Dead had already shifted from jug music to blues to folksy Americana, but it was about to embark in a new, jazzier direction.
Part of this transformation was due to Pigpen’s failing health, which prompted the addition of keyboardist Keith Godchaux and his vocalist wife Donna.
Then again, this broadening of style could hardly be called a surprise, given Garcia had long been infatuated with the music of John Coltrane and later Miles Davis.
