5.0 out of 5 stars Live Dead May 1980 - a particularly good vintage 13 Dec 2006
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The Dead have done it again with another fine vault release, this time sourced from 2 hot nights in Nassau during the "Go To Heaven" period. The music on this collection is so good it outclasses the studio recordings from this era (and I love the "Go To Heaven" album!). It is also as good (if not better) than "Dead Set", which documents the Dead's performances at the Warfield and Radio City Music Hall a few months later. The beginning of Disc 2, featuring "Feel Like A Stranger", "Althea", "Lost Sailor" and "Saint Of Circumstance" is fantastic! And I'm always partial to a good "Drums>Space" and the one on this set is no exception. A worthy addition to any Deadhead's collection but also a good one for the curious to start with.

2.0 out of 5 stars Interesting not essential 23 Nov 2013
Format:Audio CD
An odd release, this one. Rather under powered throughout and the recording quality is certainly not up there with other Grateful Dead official live releases. There's too much material from the rather uninspiring 'Go To Heaven' (and yes, I know the clues in the title...) with songs like 'Lost Sailor' and 'Saint Of circumstance' sounding uncertain and a bit palid. Brent Mydland's awful 'Far From Me' is as bad live as it is its original studio form. Sorry Brent.
Nice to here the Kingfish double of 'Lazy Lightnin' and 'Supplication' and there's a lovely 'Looks Like Rain'. To be honest though, this is more of an interesting document of the band re-emerging from the studio. A far, far better late live album is the sensational 'Without A Net' or a little further back with 'To Terrapin' from '77. And of course, you're always free to trawl through the 'Dick's Picks' series....

5.0 out of 5 stars Killer GRATEFUL DEAD From May 15-16, 1980! Excellent!!! 12 Aug 2007
By T. Kasuboski - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
For the life of me I cannot understand why so many seemingly devoted fans of the GRATEFUL DEAD are so often hostile to the late 70's and early 80's DEAD material. It's unfortunate that many Deadheads cannot look beyond the brilliance of 1967-1974 and accept the fact that many of the shows played between 1976 and 1985 rank amongst the most powerful and exciting performances of the DEAD's career! Such is the case with the material on The GRATEFUL DEAD-"Go To Nassau". Recorded May 15-16, 1980 at the Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale, New York(following the release of the DEAD's highly under-rated 1980 studio album "Go To Heaven"), "Go To Nassau" offers a highly enjoyable glimpse of the DEAD circa 1980. Some have argued that the 1980 version of the GRATEFUL DEAD is simply not essential. I find this sentiment absolutely appalling! As a fan of the GRATEFUL DEAD I find it disheartening that someone would refer to ANY GRATEFUL DEAD recording as non-essential. Certainly, one can prefer one era of the DEAD's history to another(and likewise, prefer one show to another), however to ignore a whole period of the DEAD's history is quite ignorant. Without a doubt 1980 a was a VERY solid year for the GRATEFUL DEAD featuring the return of acoustic sets, performances at Radio City Music Hall, the emergence of Brent Mydland, and many high energy electric sets. "Go To Nassau" is made up of all electric material much of which is played quite passionately. The opening "Jack Straw" is intense and the "Franklin's Tower" which follows is very well played. The first disc also features killer versions of "High Time", "Lazy Lightning", "Supplication", "Looks Like Rain"(one of the best post-Donna Godchaux versions), and an awesome "China Cat Sunflower/I Know You Rider". The second disc of "Go To Nassau" features an abundance of "Go To Heaven" material including a super-funky "Feel Like A Stranger", a dark and emotional "Althea", and a superb "Lost Sailor/Saint Of Circumstance". The second disc closes with highly enjoyable versions of "Playing In The Band", "Uncle John's Band"(GREAT version!!!), "Not Fade Away", "Goin' Down The Road Feeling Bad", and "Good Lovin'". The only real bummer about the "Go To Nassau" release is that no material from the excellent May 14, 1980 Nassau Coliseum show was included. The May 14th show may very well have been the best of the Nassau run!!! At any rate, "Go To Nassau" is an EXCELLENT release, in may ways far superior to "Dead Set" and in my humble opinion currently the best representation of 1980 available to the public via legitimate release. I find it so sad that many younger DEAD fans have shied away from the 1976-1985 period. They are truly missing out on some of the most essential material of the DEAD's career!!! So do yourself a favor and pick up "Go To Nassau". It deserves a place in every GRATEFUL DEAD fan's collection!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Hidden Gem 7 Feb 2010
By Peter Burbank - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I just picked this up last night at Backside in Burbank, and I have to say it is a pleasant surprise. I do not think I've heard a GD recording where Jerry has sounded better (I'm sure plenty of you will disagree, and I'd love to know which CD's those are) on Jackstraw he plays this crashing rhythm I've never heard fom him before, and his leads soar like birds. The vocal harmonies are beautiful, and Phil, Bill and Bob are great as always. Great song selections all around. If your hunting for next Live addition to your GD collection, this is a Great Pick.

3.0 out of 5 stars Indifferent performances, bad edits, and below avarage mix 1 Dec 2006
By Grateful Jerry - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is not a great release. The jams are cut and the best night of the run wasn't even used. I loved the sound of Brent's Fender-Rhoades electric piano during this period. Unfortunatly, it's been turned so low in the mix you can barely hear it. On tunes like Lazy Lightnin' Jerry and Brent's backing vocals have been erased. This release does have a nice setlist but bottoms out after High Time. Very little after this is actually noteworthy
