I tried Amon Duul II on the wife the other night and it was not a success.

Aaah! Side 2 of "Carnival In Babylon". That's my comfort music...

Yeti and Dance of the Lemmings are the offending pieces in my collection. Soap Shop Rock and Eye Shaking King were not greeted warmly. As for "Pull down your mask, wolf in zer sheepskin"...well!

Man live are generally better than Man in the studio. The same is true but more so with the Grateful Dead. Don't bother with the studion albums, go to the live music archive: http://www.archive.org/details/GratefulDead (or for all bands: http://www.archive.org/browse.php?collection=etree&field=%2Fmetadata%2Fcreator) or check our the Dick's Picks Series (36 volumes), The new Road trips series, the download series or the vault series all accessible from ww.dead.net.

I'd love to have all volumes up to the point that Garcia started to 'slow right down' but being a penniless musician I've had to settle for one.  In fact I've got DP1 which is quite a good place to start as it features far better versions of songs from Wake Of The Flood, including a fabulous version of 'Here Comes Sunshine' to which Davey refers, as a 5 piece (Donna was giving birth, Mickey Hart elsewhere) which to me improved things no end!

Ah! Do I detect at long last that I'm not the only Deadhead that found Donna to add absolutely nothing to the band and Mickey to always be at best a dispensible luxury, possibly over-ambitious clutter?

Don't bother with the studion albums, go to the live music archive:

That's a little simplistic, Clifton! (But I know what you mean!!). Even so, if a Dead novice were to stumble upon this article I think it's fair to say that 69-75 studio stuff is worth a punt for the casual listener too. I never tire of Workingman's Dead and American Beauty, to name but two for fear that this will become yet another thread that has Nick & I endlessly waxing over China Cat Sunflower.....!

As a casual listener to The 'Dead I would like to say that Axomoxoa , Anthem for the Sun,WMD & American Beauty were all albums that I once possed and would actually love to revisit again . I wonder if, after the passing of (sadly many) years and listening in a  clear brained state, I would still find them appealing. What do you lads think?

I would say the latter pair would still qualify under your new conditions, Bill! Rob?

I've filled out to completion my collection of Dead "official" CD's over the past six months.   Some great stuff on there and never less than interesting.   Some bizarre moments along the way - Shakedown Street, for example, which I find quite amusing although I am sure they were all deadly (sic) serious about it at the time.

Also picked up the Fillmore 69 set (which I think makes much more sense than Live/Dead) and the movie soundtrack set, as well as the Garcia box All Good Things and Bob Weir's ACE

Lots more to go

....Bob Weir's ACE


This is one of my favourite Dead LPs - for a start they're the backing band and all the material strong enough to seemlessly fit into the Dead's live set as and when.

Yo! Ready! Welcome to the Rob & Nick Show!

You start this time, Rob.

Looks like we're all singing from the same hymn book - Dead studio stuff great from early days if you like acid-Frisco, then some beautiful song-based albums (like everybody else who heard The Band and sh*t their trousers) around '70 and also a handful of classic solo LPs around 71-72 as well as a myriad of single (Bear's Choice); double (Live Dead; 1971 "Skull & Roses") and triple (Europe 72) live offerings.

ACE is all but a Dead album, yes, and a very good one. Garcia's first album is another favourite - more "solo" tunes that ended up into the parent act's set (Deal, Sugaree) but also some beautiful experimental music (Spidergawd, Eep Hour, Late for Supper etc) that many will remember used as the opening sequence on the GD movie. When you combine the two mentioned LPs together you can't help but salivate over what a timely bona fide Dead studio follow up to American Beauty might have been like - but we got two LPs instead so no matter!

Nick, what was the opening cut of side 2 of Aoxomoxoa called? I quite liked that.

...quite alright, Mikes. (How many of you is there, by the way?) However, I think Rob was actually alluding to dripping a silver kimono like a crazy-quilt star gown. Bit cold for that sort of thing, I would have thought.
