G'day China/Cornish....thanx for the feedback guys. I'm actually a late bloomer with GD mainly because they never toured Shane Warne (formerly Australia) and were never given any exposure here until the 'Touch of Grey' film clip appeared. I was aware of them existing but the first time i heard them was in the early to mid 80s around the time i picked up a copy of Zabriskie Point - i gather you guys are familiar with that soundtrack. The first album i bought was the compilation 'Skeletons...' just to get a quick taste back in 1990, I think. Then right at the very end of the 90s it kind of all happened real quick. Hundred Year Hall & DP3 both blew me away and then bang bang bang - you know the addiction - i couldn't get away. My wife was thinking of holding an intervention for me! By the way, I'm currently listening to Cow Palace '76 (with the bonus disc!) as i'm typing. They still aren't my favorite band but they share the no. 2 spot along with at least 25 others.
No Cornish, i've not heard their last show and i'm thinking maybe i shouldn't - i gather it'd be like listening to Zeppelin's 1980 tour. Strangely enough, i have 2 shows from 95 on my ipod that i've never listened to - may 26 & june 25. I totally agree on the help/slip/franklin combo - dynamite! The only track i don't have time for that you mentioned is 'Looks Like Rain' - totally agree with the rest. Disc 2 of DP16 is probably my most played disc of any GD i own.
China: Interesting that you started with 'Wake of the flood'. - a truly great album, but what made you start with that one?
Would you believe i've never personally met any other GD fan. I know GD fans exist here somewhere - I can smell them, but i can't see that far...
