Sit back and enjoy some master musicians.
But it's easy to ignore these minor considerations in the light of the music, and the songs. These are an excellent mix of Dead originals and covers.
The originals include excellent versions of Playing In The Band and Wharf Rat, and a paint-blistering version of The Other One, which drives as hard as Ride of the Valkyries, with the same ¾ beat.
The covers are exactly the kinds of references I'd expect from a band like the Dead back in the early 70s, including respectful versions of songs I would at the time have considered "heritage", like Me & Bobby McGee (immortalised for me by Janis Joplin), Johnny B Goode (Chuck Berry was still on the road and rockin' hard, but my young self at the time considered him to be of the previous generation) and Not Fade Away (originally a Buddy Holly staple, the liner notes remind us, but probably more familiar in the Stones' version). The other cover worth mentioning is Merle Haggard's Mama Tried, a song I can guarantee most of my peers at the time would have considered soooo uncool, reflecting as it does the Dead's Country influences, as does the opener, Bertha.Read more ›
This set is better than Live Dead - dare I say less pretentious than the ramblings of Dark Star [though I must confess that I too taped a C-120 cassette so I could hear the first three sides of the album in one go as recorded].
This album I might buy again, if only for "Me and my Uncle". It shows the band at its live best without the distorted myth that has grown around it, or the many band changes that marked their slow decline.
For studio, try "American Beauty" or "Workingman's Dead" first. Or even Bobby Weir's "Ace".
A great album for both Heads and casual fans.
