Look out! Here come the '80's...

"It is no secret that Grateful Dead shows from the decade of the '80's could be hit or miss affairs, but the band was still more than capable of delivering stunning, if somewhat ragged, performances. 1985 stands out as a pinnacle year for great shows, and this one represented by DP 21 is among the top 5 of that esteemed year. From the "Dancin' in the Streets" > "Cold Rain and Snow" opener to the energetic reading of "Gloria" to close the second set, this show sparkles with a wonderful intensity. Jerry was in the mood for ballads this evening and he delivered : "High Time," "He's Gone," "Comes A Time," and "She Belongs to Me" are all played with some serious soul and heart. The rest of the band is on, too, with Bobby delivering the goods on all of his tunes (especially Gloria) and even Phil joins in with a fun "Gimme Some Lovin.'" In short, if you are new to the Dead, you might want to pass this one in favor of a pick from the seventies. The sound is a little thin (per usual for '80's shows) and there are some missed chords and lyrics...however, if you appreciate the Dead even a little bit or are merely a fan of honest and beautiful music, this collection won't disappoint. Oh yeah, if this amazing '85 show isn't enough, four juicy bonus songs from 1980 will surely satisfy those pleasure centers in your brain."
A solid live release from `85.

"This three disc set is the only official release from `85.It includes songs rarely seen on other live releases from The Grateful dead like 'spoonful','lost sailor','gimmie some lovin','she belongs to me','gloria' and 'keep your day job'.
This show would be 100 percent perfect if not for the fact that Jerry Garcia`s vocals are a bit weak on 'high time' and 'he`s gone' from the second disc.Otherwise this show if filled with top-notch performances and rarely played songs."
