I going to buy one GD album to get into them. Live or studio and which one please?
Originally posted by StTitoI know what you mean, but here I am this very minute listening to 1973's Wake Of The Flood and very nice it is too - very similar to what they were doing live at that time, minus the jazzy and avant garde extemporizations.
I think working mans dead is the only studio album worth anything.
Originally posted by FMFOutstanding! I just recently realized that all of the dead shows that I have on cassette tapes in a box in my attic and then some are now available for free download. Of course it now seems obvious but I just never thought to look until I saw mention of it on your profile.
The subject title says it all! The Grateful Dead Club FORUM is now up and running.
If anyone has any net resources, links, blogs, thoughts, rants, wishlists, analysis, etc. to share with fellow Dead afficianados then our spanking brand new ship shape and bristol fashion FORUM is the place to do it.
And thene there's the GD chat littered chess games too, of course.
Originally posted by FMFThanks but I'm not much of an expert I'm afraid. Years ago I enjoyed some tenticles, t.dream etc but lost interest when stopped getting stoned. Gradually becoming mostly mainstream, big floyd fan always, hawkwind, marillion too in 80's but but got bored with them quickly, loved zappa's sheik yer booty. Love all zeppelin stuff, (but not genre I know). Was considering Live Dead on amazon??

Originally posted by rbmorrisWhen a cafe asks me to rustle up a few CD-Rs of music, the Grateful Dead disc is usually 70% of "Workingman's Dead", 70% of "American Beauty", plus Bertha and Not Fade Away/Goin' Down The Road Feeling Bad from "Grateful Dead (1971)", Ship Of Fools and Scarlet Begonias from "From The Mars Hotel", Franklin's Tower from "Blues For Allah", China Cat Sunflower and I Know You Rider from "Europe 72", and Brokedown Palace from "Dead Set".
I'm guessing you've never heard 'American Beauty'.
