    I also strongly recommend the 1992 Television album. It’s my favorite.

    That's the remix. The 2001 refers to the year the Golden Road box set was released, and the 2003 refers to the year in which that version was released separately.

    Tons of info on the various mixes of Live/Dead and related material here:

    Grateful Dead Guide: Dark Star: A Tale of Four Mixes

    The 2001 mix was originally released on the Golden Road box set (which is the copy of the 2001 mix that I have). I'd imagine the 2003 Rhino is part of a series of single-album reissues using the masters/mixes from that box, but am not 100% sure.

    I've just a/b'd some fragments and the differences are pretty substantial in terms of levels, panning and equalization. Nice! (sorry for being off-topic).

    I've never done a back to back a/b myself, but that blog is nothing if not thorough. I've also never heard the Healy mix, although I have both of the Live/Dead mixes as well as the Fillmore West box set on CD. Someday if I have the time it would be fun to do an a/b listen with that blog info in front of me, but probably won't be any time soon.

    I have the relatively recent MoFi vinyl of Live/Dead, but I believe they used the 2001 mix for that as well. I used to have an 80s reissue vinyl copy of the original mix, but that one disappeared when I lent it to a high school friend years and years ago, and I never bothered to replace it because of a long lull in vinyl listening.

    To get back on topic, I'm at work listening to my iPod on shuffle, currently listening to one of the Flaming Lips tracks from Clouds Taste Metallic.

    That was the first I bought as well. And last FZ cd I purchased. I am sure I made a mistake starting there.

    Maurice Jarre

    The Main theme is wonderful and magical.
    And(to me) more classic than any theme John Williams ever wrote. And I do love me some John Williams

    Recorded in 1958. A real tour de force performance

    The one by Jarre that kills me is the piece for two Spanish guitars he wrote for Mourir à Madrid. It's only four minutes long, but it's so beautiful and sad that I could listen to it over and over again. It's only available in a compilation.

    This is the EP released back in 1963.

    My Rite of Spring box set includes the 1972 Bernstein recording, but not this one.

    I really wish the original mix could be rereleased. Maybe AF could? Learning what MOFI had done was one of my big musical disappointments.

    introduced my 18 year old son to this and the hook was almost instantaneous. Now i hear it playing through the house almost daily.

    Not as wonderful as Marquee Moon, but really nice anyway. Sometimes I feel this is an overlooked band.

    A very popular album in this thread. I should give it a try.
