I'll bite ... I'm that dude that actually likes the studio albums, even ... but a good live set (or 3) when I'm in the right mood is a day well wasted ... and certain of their songwriting (Garcia-Hunter) is brilliant

I would just never listen to a Grateful Dead studio recording.


Give me "The Golden Road" live anthology and I'll be set.

well, I'm a fan of studio recordings in general ... I love live music, but it doesn't always come across well in a recording ... there's kinds of guitar tones in particular that you can't get any other way ... whether it's The Velvet Underground's studio take of "Sweet Jane" with all it's beautiful stilted clunkiness, or (more relevantly) "Stella Blue" (for clarity of delineated groove) or "U.S. Blues" (for vocal and guitar tones) or "Terrapin Station" (for unnatural closeness of perspective) or side one of Anthem Of The Sun (cos it's insane) ... I'm not a fan of badly applied studio technique, just that there's sonic things that happen naturally there if you let them that can't happen in other places

By no means would I disagree that the Grateful Dead brought the 300 pound gorilla to the live idiom, and at their best could take you places you couldn't get to any other way (whether one wants to go to those places is one's own prerogative)

i listened to them a lot in college, but never religiously or anything. been getting back into them recently.

over at archive.org you can download all kinds of shows for free. lots of good soundboard recordings, many available in flac.

this one is particularly nice, with 25 wonderful minutes of Scarlet Begonias/Fire on the Mountain
Internet Archive: Free Download: Grateful Dead Live at Barton Hall - Cornell University on 1977-05-08

Seeing that a Dead topic was already in order, I will just post here. I love the Dead, by far my favorite group, their music has so much listening pleasure to it. Favorite album is Wake of the Flood over here.

Just got myself a nice Grateful Dead record.

My first one! I have a 7" but that's knackered.
Some american bands are hard to get here.
The Grateful Dead is really a problem and you cannot find anything by Lynyrd Skynyrd either .

Pretty rare one. No sleeve, but it's very playable.
It was in one big box of records (110 pieces for 50 bucks).
Had some really nice stuff in it. Doors, Led Zep, Fela Kuti, cure, vaughan.

Wake of the Flood is a very good album, but I usually find it doesn`t get mentioned in the same breath, as some of their other studio albums around the same period, such as say Workingmans Dead and Amercian Beauty.

Very true, when you think of the Dead you always think "Live". But I have to say, Wake of the Flood is definitely one of their best studio albums in my opinion. The one I bought comes with the Acoustic Bonus track Weather Report Suite, definitely worth the 9.99$ price tag.

S__k: Wow! That seems like a darn good deal for that many records, enjoy it my friend, it's not every day that you run into Dead records, at least around here that is
