To anyone who attended any of these concerts, this CD is a 'must have'- and you won't be disappointed! The sound quality is superb, and so it should be, as this was recorded on the Dead's 16 track mobile studio that was carted all around Europe. To anyone not lucky to have witnessed these historic concerts there is plenty to enjoy,including never released before versions of 'Rocking Pneumonia & The Boogie Woogie Flu, and a knockout version of 'Hey Bo Diddley' sandwiched between an excellent 'Not Fade Away'. Lovelight>Goin'Down The Road is awesome, and Dark Star>Sugar Magnolia>Caution is positively apocalyptic! My only gripe is that 'One More Saturday Night' which followed 'Caution' as an encore 'on the night' appears at the end of the previous CD - for the full full-on effect of the Grateful Dead at full steam ahead, put on 'One More Saturday night after 'Caution' and you'll see what I mean. These 4 Cds (5 hours of music) illustrate the Dead at their best. As the Late Dick Latvala (the Dead's archivist) once said about another Dead concert "are you kidding - this stuff is way more important than Beethoven".......

Bob Weir described the audience of which I was a member the 'coldest, stiffest, audience I've ever played for' - a description I was happy to read again in the inlay for this excellent four CD set.
In our defense, I and many of the others who packed into the newcastle City Hall to experience our very first Grateful Dead concert, were starving for the psychedelic Dead that we had grown to know and love so much. Sure, we also loved Workingman's and American Beauty but we were not so sure about the second live album. The New Musical Express at the time derided it as 'Boogie Dead' and claimed that the band were well passed their peak. I recall at that venue too, dancing was not permitted and bouncers were employed to restrain the audience and return them to their seats or throw them out if they were persistent offenders. The show was indeed great music and I listened in awe to the sheer magnificence of Pigpen and Jerry's fluid guitar runs once they got going. The performance was also marred by the frequent tune ups and by the fact that at 11pm the band was still playing but many of us had to leave otherwise there was no transport home until the next day.
By contrast the Bickershaw Festival was one of those miracle days. The event was cold and wet. Plenty of mud but no frolicking like Woodstock. Instead we all huddled together to keep warm as their was little fuel for fires. We had been rained on again and it was very cold. The New Riders had put on a fine performance and shortly, it seemed, before dusk the band came on to the stage and the sun shone with a fantastic performance including 'Dark Star' which raised our spirits and helped us forget our troubles for the next four hours or so.
Some of those performances are recorded on this album.

What we have here seems to be high times for The Grateful Dead. Pigpen still with them and Keith and Donna had just got on board. First thing noticed about this very generous 4CD set is the excellent sound quality (this is 1972 remember) and how seemless it all flows, selections having been recorded at four different venues over a total of seven gigs.

The band's enthusiasm for and committment to the many song and diverse musical forms they tackle comes over well. There's so much to get into ; blues, country tunes, original songs some then newish to the reportoire.

"Dark Star" is very present and correct running some 31 minutes, as is "The Other One" jam which surprisingly, and yet feeling so right, takes in Marty Robbin's "El Paso" on the way. Yes, the whole gamut of The Grateful Dead is here. Well recorded and presented and top form playing and singing throughout.

We all know that there are an astonishing amount of Grateful Dead live recordings out there. I have heard quite a few and this is my undoubted favourite. It also features all(?) of their 1972 show at Bickershaw where I was present as well, although my memories are a little hazy given the length of time passed, and the condition of many of us present at the time. The line up of the festival was astonishing including some of my favourite groups ever like the Incredible String Band, Captain Beefheart and the Magic Band and of course The Grateful Dead. This 4 cd set is just about the best Grateful Dead line-up ever. The recording quality is stunningly good. The song selection is really interesting. The singing is just about 100% in tune!!! and you get over 5 hours in total with virtually no padding.It's just about perfect

After Garcia's death, long long after this series of performances in another day and age came a messy lawsuit, with erstwhile partner Carolyn "mountain Girl" Cassidy told, rather contemptuously by nemesis and also ex-Garcia wife D Koons, that all she had left was the back catalogue.

That was back 1995, but I bet no one really saw what would happen next... the much derided back catalogue would go on to sell... and sell... and sell. Sometimes glamorously repackaged and beefed up with self important analysis, sometimes shorn of too much verbiage (as is the case here), these reissues chronicle the shambolic, genial nature of the Dead as it passes from being high fashion and cool into the outer wastes of critical indifference and fan adulation.

The hook for listening to the Dead's music is, of course, that no one concert is really the same. Is it true? To a certain extent, yes. And back in 1972 the Dead were riding a critical wave of approval on both sides of the Atlantic, partly because they had simply survived "together/more or less in line" and had begun to represent an era which was already waning. Partly, too, because all the seperate units gelled together and produced a stage show that had its rousing, quiet, and complex moments.

Hard to see the Brits would have ever warmed to a band so steeped in laid-back California hippy vibes, but in 1972, they did. Or were told by the music press that they should.

And in this CD you get a pretty good summary of how the Dead rose to the challenge ofg an unfamiliar audience (Newcastle, anyone?
