    Of course, @ratstack, the Real Gone Music reissues of 4.2-4.5 are still available from their website for normal human prices.

    Ah! At normal, human prices they are two of the best releases in the entire GD catalog. Upper echelon stuff.

    Well I had to go seek this out after all that! Was really digging it then that buggy site I stream from started messing up around Estimated, so I gave up and flipped over to the October 77 RT (since it kicks off with that Let it Grow) - it's really working for me right now!

    Friend, that's the best decision you've made all day.

    Now friend, let me talk to you about this bridge I have. It's just south of the 59th Street bridge...

    You should. Particularly while they’re available at retail prices.

    Thanks. A list of essential shows, IMO. Each will make your hair stand on end if given the chance.

    I always had hoped that entire Hofheinz 10-14 show would have been released. Just like the aforementioned 10-11-77 which is spread out all over the place and was deserving of a complete release.

    My Favourite Dark Star. Beats the over hyped '73 versions with it's sheer coolness.

    Does anyone know why the band dropped the William Tell bridge for Aoxomoxoa?

    I still love more than a couple 73 Dark Stars, but as was stated upthread Fall 68 has some intense improv happening. Great shows. 10-20 is as you said...cool. Jammed the 11-1-68 Other One suite today, highly recommended.

    That's an interesting comment given your Avatar features one of the more amazing Dark Star's that was ever performed by the Grateful Dead.

    I need to go find the whole show somewhere. Everyone was really in the zone, all cylinders, Bobby in particular to my ear - that rhythm work on what I've heard so far from that night is unreal.

    2 of the heavy weights of the R.T series, no doubt.

    My favourite '76 show. The bonus material is gorgeous.

    Hahaha, did not even realise. That release has a special place in my heart. Beautiful lazy Saturday music.

    Just to be clear - 1973 is my favourite year. I just prefer 60's Dark Star.

    2/27/69 - Moving on to the 2nd set. Was able to get this set recently for a (somewhat) reasonable price and plan on blasting it all weekend. What a way to celebrate my birthday weekend!

    Interesting question. Maybe the answer is somewhere on the deadessays.blogspot.com site?
