    Charlie Miller has released an Ultramatrix cassette SBD of Brent's last show 7/23/90. I never got around to hearing this show so maybe I'll check it out.

    Agreed. That bar is so high. The post-drums half is where it's at, and you even get the treat of a 2nd verse/classic Jerry & Phil ending. Given the latter, it's too bad it's not as uniformly exciting as so many of the other versions.

    I was generating a very similar list over on the Ready or Not thread at almost exactly the same time:
    Ready Or Not, Grateful Dead's unfinished studio album

    Just finished listening to this:

    Ladies & Gentlemen Fillmore East 1971-04.25-29

    Overall a very nice, strong set, I thought. Nothing particularly standing out as amazing, but after plowing through all those 1971 soundboards it was REALLY great to hear a very well recorded set of concerts with what I felt was above average clarity and focus. The Dark Star of course was nice. Again, I really liked how the bass sounded in I think it was both Mountain Dew and Wharf Rat, which I believe were one of the latter nights. Very detailed and distinct. Overall I felt a good, strong release.

    Now, I'm on to The Closing of Winterland. The 4th disc looks like an especially sweet lineup...

    I guess I got lucky. My box and discs are in mint condition. No excuse to wait 40 days for delivery though, but at least I got a good box that needs no exchanges.

    In the Bible, the number 40 is always associated with spiritual transformation. The journey on Noah's Ark lasts 40 days and nights, Jesus spend 40 days in the wilderness, the Israelites spend 40 years in the desert, and so forth. :tiphat:

    Word is that the new remastered Super Deluxe Egypt 1978 box will include all the entire shows plus frogs and locusts.

    How about first born male children? Should we avoid this new box like the plague?

    Heh... Who'da thought...

    BTW, it's a little embarrassing but, well, I had to have my Argot removed some years ago. It just kept growing and growing, so I had to do something about it.

    Yep, I think I've been across some... I have quite a few Dave's in FLAC, but I will likely have to shag the others in MP3. But, after listening to a lot of the earlier soundboards, believe me, I am REALLY appreciating the official releases a lot more now, even if in MP3!

    I really love those Ultramatrixes. Even if there are cleaner/clearer PCM or other DSBD sources -- I still typically prefer the Ultramatrix.

    You've got better brain stability than I. I only made it through 12 or 13 before succumbing to vertigo. Of course, the lime in the coconut was the 9/19/70 Dark Star, after a short period of abstinence, mind you.

    HOLY SMOK'N ARCHTOP NUTZ!!!

    Okay, before I even GET to the good disc (Disc 4) of Closing Winterland, I just had to come here and say that I have never ever, Ever, EVER heard anything quite like the 19 1/2 minute Not Fade Away! WOW!!! I mean, I generally like the different versions of the song that I've heard, but man... I mean, Jerry not only travels beyond the Cosmosphere, but somehow does it transdimensionally...! HOLY $...t! In all this crap I have not heard anything quite like that. Damn impressive!

    NOW... that I've successfully changed my pants...

    on to the lovely Disc 4...

    You need to mix in two or three 68 versions to shake things up. And then in circumstances like 4/24/72 you get a whole other song that's hardwired in there, so it's not going to be 100% Dark Star. But if it's Dark Star>anything that doesn't lead back to Dark Star, then it gets chopped. I'm coming off a 3 month break so I think now is the time.

    You and @warewolf95 oughta talk. :)
