  2. Well, like I said, I am COMPLETELY ignorant about GD except for primarily the one album. Oh, and I think I have in FLAC one of their earlier more Psychedelic albums that I like too - it's not Axomoxa or whatever it is, but the other one either before or after it)

    But, I am really looking forward to listening to this and becoming educated. I hastily looked at the reviews, such as they were, here, and oddly there really were only a few that commented kind of 'generally' that the album was good, but almost no specific comments. So, I went by the fact that Kevin Gray mastered it and I hurriedly listened to snippets on Amazon and I liked what I heard. HOPEFULLY the sound is really good on this!

    Cheers!

    It is a great set and at this price, no question.

    However, "LIVE Dead" is the best starting point for anybody to get into the prime GD psychedelic sound. Then "Workingman's Dead" and "American Beauty", both studio efforts, that remain 2 of the best rock albums ever released. You get their best songwriting but no jamming whatsoever. If you like this GD phase, then get the triple Europe 72 LP set.

    I think it is clearly a pricing mistake, but perhaps they will honor it. We'll see..

  13. I do have a FLAC version of American Beauty and I very much do like their Psychedelic sound. That one and Terrapin Station are the two that I am most familiar with and like very much! It's just that liking these, I started listening to some of their other albums and at the time they just sounded like REALLY boring Country music to me, which I have no interest in. Perhaps it was just the specific albums I chose, it was like 20 years ago...

    But, thank you kindly for the specific recommendations and mentioning the types they are. I think what I liked when I listened to snippets of this one and from what I read, it sounds like they do a lot of jamming on this one, which being a guitarist myself (using the term loosely) I really like that, so I am very much looking forward to hearing this one. From the snippets on Amazon, the sound quality didn't seem too bad.

    Grateful Dead - Two from the vault 4LP- still listed at £20.28.
    My order says it is scheduled to ship Oct. 27. If it was indeed a mistake, you'd think they would have corrected it by now...
