Synopsis

Amazon.com
There are many parallels between the Grateful Dead and a beloved sports team. Deadheads would fervently root for their squad, cheer wildly for successful spurts, forgive the "team" after a "loss" (subpar show), and return again for the next "game." They even keep track of the "statistics." Now, of course, the team has lost its star player--its heart and soul, its leading scorer, its off-the-court leader--and fans have been forced to readjust expectations. But these Other Ones can still win a few ball games playing an updated style that still leaves plenty of room for improvisation and features new teammates such as old friend Bruce Hornsby, jazz saxophonist Dave Ellis (who broadens the sonic palette), and the twin lead-guitar tandem of Mark Karan and Steve Kimock (who consistently weave intriguing lines around each other). They've added five new "plays" (songs) to the standard Dead playbook and even unearthed a couple of older ones ("St. Stephen," "The Eleven"). Still, without Jerry Garcia, they're no longer championship caliber--maybe at best a playoff contender--and, most important, they're just not as fun to root for. --Marc Greilsamer

"I went to this tour in 1998. Unfortunately I was 9 years old then. This is a great way to remember the things I don't remember. I've listened to most albums by the Grateful Dead and this is the Grateful Dead. The only thing I wish was on the tour/CD was Jerry. The White Wheeled Limousine and St. Stephens were unbelievable. I think this CD captures the more jam band aspect of the Dead, which is what they're known for. If you want to hear good live music from this band, this is the CD to get."
