Santana does some lead as well.
I'm in no way a GD fan. However I like this.

So my question to you folks as you are ever so helpful :
If there was 1 or two CD's of either Concert or Studio Grateful Dead stuff I should give a listen to, what would it be?



Thanks for the help.

Mike / Brooklyn

I was at this show. It was a benefit at a small Montessori school to raise money for musical instruments for the schools. I believe that Mickey Hart had kids that attended, if not this one, another Montessori school. We could not get over Olatunji, who opened the show and had a bunch of the young students join him onstage as he and his "Drums of Passion" pounded out incredible rhythms
We paid an extra $25 to be able to attend a "meet & greet" after the show, at which I got to meet and get the autographs of Mickey, Carlos and Jerry. I remember that when I approached Carlos, I was "dumbstruck", and could only mutter "Wow, Carlos, I don't know what to say". He answered, "Keep smiling, buddy...you got a great smile". Little did he know that I had taken LSD & ectasy and you couldn't wipe the smile off my face with 30-grit sandpaper!
Also met, for the first time, Steve Kimock, who was just one of the audience that night. When I asked him for his autograph, he said "I'm not famous". I told him "you will be, someday"!

As for recommendations, I would start with:

1. the "Skull & Roses" album ( or, as Phil would have called it, "Skull Fu<K") - definitive versions of "Bertha" & "Not Fade Away/Goin' Down The Road...", a rippin' version of "Johnny B. Goode", and some great pickin' by Jerry on "Big Railroad Blues" & "Me & My Uncle".

2. "Europe '72" - great versions of "China Cat.../...Rider", "Sugar Mags", "Tennessee Jed", & "Truckin'".

3. "One From The Vault" - definitive versions of "Help.../...Knot/...Tower", "The Music Never Stopped", and my all-time favorite version of "Eyes Of The World"!
And, of course, a "Crazy Fingers"!

4. For some really wild stuff, it doesn't get any wilder than the "Dark Star">"Saint Stephen">"The Eleven" from "Two From The Vault"!

5. For some mellower stuff with great harmonizing, check out the two studio albums, "American Beauty" & "Workingman's Dead"

I know that's more than two but, as you can ask any Deadhead, it's hard to narrow it down to just that many!

Oh, and you can hear the definitive "Scarlet.../Fire..." here:

"Not Fade Away > Goin Down The Road Feelin Bad" from 'Skull and Roses' is perhaps the best place to start to get the Dead Jam vibe. If you like that there's a whole lot more.

A lot of people consider May 1977 to be the peak of the Grateful Dead's career. Dick's Picks 3 is a really good one from that period.

It is really hard to pick just one or two. Skull & Roses and Europe '72 are very good and probably easier to find.
