    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..

    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...

    Uh, make that $223...

    Actually, I'm sorry, you link goes to Amazon.com for some odd reason where HERE in the US it is that high. Oddly though, you are right, when you DO go to Amazon UK then that is the price. Damn weird...!

    I have NO idea what that is :)

    Also, it's kind of scary when you click on a link and it automatically 'enables' something that you don't know... Not knowing what it is I clicked 'Disable' when I got there. It would be kind of nice that when a person provides a link that they kindly give some explanation as to what it does before fellow members here click on it.

    Use the viglink just above, or hold your cmd key down (Mac) when you click. The link does go to UK. It's your computer config that is the problem.

    So.... should I cancel my order at £20.28 and reorder...? What the chances that this will actually ship at this price, seems mad!

    Thanks for at least mentioning something about what the link does. Most interesting. I still am a little fuzzy on what it does...??? Any other time that I've clicked on a link for either US or UK Amazon, it has always gone to the right place. Why do you think all of the sudden this time it wouldn't...?

    I'm not rich by any means, but even though I've never even HEARD the bloody thing, I put in another order that came out to $20 shipped to the US, but I am keeping my first order for $27. Sounds like it is worth it to double the chances that they might ship ONE of them :) Also, with prices in the US at $123, it seems prudent to have another sealed copy just in case... Normally, I cannot do stuff like that, but at these prices...
