Reckoning and Dead Set are must-haves. Also One From the Vault is excellent. I think Cornell (5-8-77?) is out now too, and that is THE show.

From the Brent Mydland era...
Get the DVD "Downhill From Here"..Fantastic 1989 show from Alpine Valley
I like the 3-CD "Dozin' at The Knick" Album (recorded Spring 1990)

In general...
There's some great live tracks on the 5-CD Box Set "So Many Roads"
The 7/2/71 show from the Fillmore West is great.

I love the "Nightfall of Diamonds" Cd you listed. I was at that show!!!

Three from the Vault is one of my favorites. A 1971 show from the Capital Theatre in Port Chester, NY. Pigpen does great versions of Easy Wind and Smokestack Lightning.

the sound on Dicks Picks varies based upon when / where it was recorded.

At this point, you might do better either listening to shows on the archive or downloading torrents from bt.etree or lossless legs (shnflac.net). There is plenty of GREAT stuff out there that hasn't been released yet.

If you are looking for official releases, check out the Fillmore W fall 1973 and FW 1969 (some of the material is on LiveDead), and Fillmore E April 71. There is also the "Road Trips" series available on dead.net. Highlights would be, imo 2/14/68, To Terrapin (5/28/77).

5/08/77 has not been officially released yet, but is easily available for d/l. It's a great show, but by no means "the best"

I'm pretty sure DS>St Stephen on LiveDead is from 2/27, the 3 disc FW lists them from 2/28. If you look at the times on the tracks, the ones on the disc are not the LiveDead versions.

If you like Spring 77, you will like To Terrapin

Rocking the Cradle: Grateful Dead, Egypt 1978

“Ollin Arageed” into “Fire On The Mountain” is one my all time favorites

5-8-77 has not been officially released. I highly recommend you go here and do some reading and listening:

This is my favorite blog with amazing insight into the audience tape.

The 3 Disc '69 set is DEFINITELY worth the money. The new Terrapin is awesome, as is DP 29 (two more 5/77 shows). As someone said before, the DP sound varies. Probably the worst is DP 32 (though they acknowledge that it is a poor recording). If you like the '89 shows, you will like Dozin' At The Knick. Ladies and Gentleman (4/71) is excellent.

There is so much available for download at archive.org (audience only) or through etree.org, or Lossless Legs (http://www.shnflac.net/). You will quickly have more shows than you have time to listen to! Kind of concentrate on each era, and gain an appreciation for it, then move to another, where you will gain an appreciation of the entire body of work they produced. Simply amazing.

If you can find a copy of "Dead To The Core" (out of print, but available from eBay), it will help fill in some of the gaps in terms of how the band morphed through the decades and it will point you to shows to search for. It is amazing how many of the shows he reviews (the book was published in '97) have actually been released since.

Try to find 9/19/70 and 9/20/70 Fillmore East.

9/19/70 is an A+ sound quality soundboard. It's not the entire show but what there is sounds amazing. Dark Star> St Stephen> Not Fade Away> Turn On Your Lovelight

9/20/70 includes an acoustic set, one of the best of th year, featuring David Grisman and David Nelson on mandolin. Early acoustic version of "Truckin." The electric set features an incredible "Caution" finale with some feedback. Sound quality is A/A-.

on the archive, you can only d/l the auds. the sbds are for streaming only.

you can d/l sbds on the torrent sites.

edit to add: there are some very good auds out there, especially in the 80s.

All of the Road Trips series are very good. The Winterland 1973 box set is a great one too for complete live shows.

The Winterland box is great, I agree, and although I recently bought it, if I were starting out I would diversify. Many of the Dicks Picks are available on eBay. The Winterland shows are also available through the torrent sites people mentioned already. Enjoy!

thanks for the help. looks like my next purchases will be: to terrapin, FW 1969 3 disc set, dozin at the knick and maybe either three from the vault or egypt '78. depends on money and if any stores near me carry them.



also i was looking at the "so many roads" boxset and it appears the dead started cutting a studio album in '93. why was it never completed? also there are a few jerry outtakes from the album built to last. why were these cut instead of 1 of the mydland tunes?

I have an interview with Jerry in 1989 and he was asked why Brent had so
much material on Bulit to Last.."Brent came up with the most & the
strongest material," was Jerry's reply.

As for the unfinished "studio" album in the 1990's..
From the book "The Illustrated Trip"...

Nov. 1994: "Following the tour, the band conclaved at The Site, a Marin County
studio, to take another stab at putting a new album in the can. (Many Deadheads
expected a new studio release to coincide with the band's 30th anniversary in
1995.)
Despite having a number of new songs worked up (such as "So Many Roads"
and "Days Between"), the sessions were no more productive than those of
previous years. Jerry Garcia, in particular, acted like the studio was the last
place he wanted to be (which was probably the case) and contributed little
to the process."
