    Folks. I think I've found the single greatest GD recording ever. You've probably heard it before - 8/6/71 Hard to Handle. Everyone loves it because of Jerry's solo, but like usual Phil is overlooked. He's destroying from the get and actually takes the first solo and then the third solo and then him and Jerry solo together before Jerry's famous solo starts to finish it off.

    The new discovery though is the Seamons matrix, which I had never heard because I somehow had never thought to go to the archive of this show. YouTube only has AUD versions which sound okay but on both versions Phil is way too low and Bob gets drowned out completely. The matrix version though.... Jesus. Just listen please. You need your best headphones or ideally to turn up your best speakers as loud as they go without breaking. Tell me you're not screaming at the end.

    Big thanks to Keith's parents who discovered the only surviving SBD of the show on their houseboat, where it somehow didn't get destroyed just sitting their for 35 years.

    cool thread on a crazy show that includes a link to a story about Velvet Underground going over set time and preventing the Dead from playing their second set the first night, and then the Dead doing the same thing to them the next night

    Seeing the velvet underground open for the dead would be nuts.

    Listened to Dozin at the Knick (March 1990) today.

    Man that The Wheel>All Along The Watchtower>Stella Blue>Not Fade Away is a crazy good stretch.

    I'm sure he's been a nominal warriors fan since they moved there. Dude is genuinely into sports so I'm not gonna assume he's glory hunting. He is more into football I think though

    Blistering Guitar Lead

    Started with the entry level go-to Workingman's Dead and American Beauty

    Both owned, particularly dug Workingman's Dead but also I've had more time with that one at this point

    Now onto tipping my toes into the live stuff with Skull & Roses (awesome so far)

    Basically following your guide to a tee lol

    I was actually thinking about the guide recently. I kinda wanna redo it. For one, I don't give enough credit to the studio albums especially the 60s ones. Stay tuned

    This is a really interesting recording with Bob extremely high in the mix, good for anyone who wants to learn more about his guitar style. It's like whoever mixed it couldn't tell which guitar was the lead. Plus cool visuals

    Anyway I turned the guide into a little diagram segmenting the dead's releases into eras, so that a new listener might be able to get a more immediate grasp of the band's styles and evolutions over time as well as find some of the best live releases from different eras. The old version, if you liked it with its poor formatting and all, is linked in a pastebin in tiny text below the diagram.
