    I prefer things in historical order. If its a Daves bonus disc with 2/3 of another show, I patch in the missing songs from an unofficial source

    But if it's only 2 or 3 bonus cuts i usually just put them aside.

    1972-09-27 Great Morning Dew opener, very good Bird Song, excellent Brokedown Palace and PiTB; GSET not as great as the previous (or, if I may cheat, the next); Dark Star>Cumberland is hot. There seems to be a little skip from DS to Cumberland where maybe it starts up again when the track changes? (listening to Dick 11) Attics is killer though of course the vocals are a little off

    I don't remember that from my copy (purchased from GDM in the 90's).

    It’s no longer a disc when I rip it so I use the “disc” as set one or two, sometimes three and don’t do anything special with encores.

    I also will number sequentially in the order they are performed for that show. So if a show has 32 songs than it’s 1 of 32, 2 of 32, 3 of 32...etc.

    I just import the whole show and ignore the disc and set designations.

    Me too, though it’s frustrating as hell when the bonus disc/tracks are wildly out of order and don’t sync properly when patching in other songs.

    Estimated Prophet will always be top 3 fave GD songs for me. This version from 5/22/77 is blistering at the seems with greatness.

    One of the very best Estimated jams is from the July '78 box. It's either from July 3 or 5.
    It's smoking hot and long!

    7-8-78 is a great performance of that song too. They'd really gotten it broken in by then.

    Yeah, I just rip the CDs in disc order 1, 2 and 3 etc., not by set list — part of me wants to redo my iTunes though, but I don't think I can be bothered!

    As good a reason as any to queue that up right now. California!

    There's nothing difficult about this - it all fits like a glove
    My favorite He's Gone ever is from this show. And 1972-09-28 contains my favorite Brokedown Palace ever.

    I don't know if someone mentioned it already in the thread, but Joe Smith has just passed away, which is why Rolling Stone reposted that.

    Here's an obit in Variety, containing a photo of Joe with the Dead (fall '71 lineup with Keith and Pigpen, minus Bill) holding gold records for Skull.

    RIP Joe. Working in the record industry during its heyday must've been a crazy life.

    As I may have mentioned earlier, Joe Smith's book Off the Record from the late 80's is worth finding. It has some of his Grateful Dead anecdotes, and short interviews with Garcia (post-"Touch of Gray," discussing Deadheads) and Hart (discussing his father).

    It seems I was at a GD show 27 years ago tonight in Denver. They had IT dialed in that night and tore the roof off Big Mac.

    Gone are the days...
