There's some cool performances of them on Disc One of "So Many Roads" (1965-1995), mostly recorded
from 1965 to 1968. I also own the "debut" 1967 album which I like. Cream Puff War, Morning Dew, Beat It On Down The Line, Cold Rain and Snow and The Golden Road are all on there. And then there's all the unofficial stuff from that period criculating among tape traders......A goldmine.

I did not get into the Dead back in the late 60searly 70s but I have listened them more andmorein the last 10 years. I don't listen to anything after after 71-72 or so.

I'm actually drawn to the late 80's Brent Mydland era of the band simply because that's the time I went to see them in concert the most, but like every Grateful Dead fan knows, there are musical treasures to be found in every era of the Dead.

When I first started collecting Dead shows, I decided to start at the beginning. Unfortunately, there aren't too many 1967 shows in circulation. There is the Monterey Pop Festival show, the November '67 Shrine shows, the September '67 gig at the Hollywood Bowl, the March '67 Winterland show and one or two others.

1966 is a fascinating year, and quite a few shows of nice quality .

You mean 2/14/69.

The 2/14/68 show was from the Carousel Ballroom (aka Fillmore West) in San Fransisco.

yeah..66-67 was important years for grateful dead..the acid test..they began to improvise like crazy and they developed fast if you listen to the early songs from 65 compared to late 67.

I really liked the way Jerry played in those days..In my opinion he was up there with all the other greats like Jimmy page and eric clapton etc in those days..

It is also important to point out how much Pigpen influenced the band back in those formative years. He was almost the leader (but not quite), belting out all those blues standards "Smokestack Lightning" or "Big Boss Man" or "I'm A King Bee" "It Hurts Me Too" etc.

Although the Dead continued to hone their psychedelic image thru the late 60 and early 70s, they always embraced their blues and folk roots, which ultimately led to a more simplified style by the dawn of the Seventies. The result: their two 1970 LP masterpieces WORKINGMAN'S DEAD and AMERICAN BEAUTY.

Well, I have to say, I think of the dead in stages, not by year or tour but by llineup changes. And unlike a lot of fans of the band, I really like each lineup for different reasons and can find something I love about them at each stage.

I do think that they are under-rated harmony singers because they could be so horrible at it a lot of times too. - They DO have the disadvantage of having every single little note being recorded and so many poor moments actually released that it's easy to concentrate on the negative. - But when they were on, I really enjoy their vocals.

I don't think they were horrible at all. It always sounded good to me.

Agreed...My first Dead show was in 1989, but in addition to Brent's time with Jerry and the boys, I also enjoy the very early Dead. Pigpen is still one of my favorite Dead members, and another is definitely Brent. Both musicians had so much soul...IMO...
