CD Reviews

Dark Star Delight
Gavin B. | St. Louis MO | 12/15/2002
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This is pretty much your standard Dead show fare with one exception: "Dark Star". Shortly into Dark Star, Jerry cracks open the void and leads his brethern through some of their most intuitive playing ever. It's all there: the Dead play with passion, color, texture and clarity. It is 23 minutes in a transcendent reality where the listener and the music are the same thing. It is too bad it is the opening cut on the album because the rest of this excellent show pales in comparison to the first 23 minutes of the best Dead zone ever."
No filler
indierockjunkie | Madison, WI | 07/01/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is one heck of a nice disc. The songs are all top notch, flow nicely into one another, and they just didn't want to stop playing. Yes, there are versions of each song on many, many other discs. One could argue that individually, each song isn't THE BEST version floating around. But taken together as a single set, it is awfully hard to beat. It'd be hard to find better music, without filler, on a single disc."
A Top-Five Version of "Dark Star"
J. Merritt | 08/15/2006
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Okay, there's not a lot here, but what IS here is a stellar version of "Dark Star." Clocking in at over 24 minutes, it bears a strong and spacy resemblance to other versions for the first half but then goes into an up-tempo, funky jam in the second half. I've long been a believer that no "Dark Star" beats the Live/Dead version, but this one comes mighty close. If you're a fan of this song (and what Dead fan isn't?), then track this down somewhere. Well worth finding."
