CD Reviews

Gotta Have It
Kenneth M. Goodman | Cleveland, Ohio United States | 12/08/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Highlights:

Disk one: Morning Dew: grittier version while retaining staggering beauty. Doin' That Rag: quirky song that sticks in your mind, then really pays off with kewl Jerry guitar solo at the end.

Disk two: DARK STAR: Energetic as well as psychedelic; if you're a lover & collector of Dark Stars...you gotta have it.
The Eleven: Other than the "Filmore East 2/11/69" version, this is the best Eleven jam I've ever heard...very creative.

Disk three: JAM: Fantastic jam, goes through several changes...
all extraordinary. It really has a power."
Takes Off Where "Live Dead" Started.

"Now that I have this set I am gonna be sorry I never sprung for the 10 disc complete Fillmore 69 stand. That was limited to 10,000 copies. Guess that's how the Dead pays the bills these day. We keep buying this stuff.

The sound quality is amazing. This was the first live recording to use a 16 track. Darkstar is amazing, but different than the performance on "live dead." Unlike the original Allman Brother's Live at Fillmore, there are no splices, every performance is as it happened. Morning Dew is one of the three best I have ever heard. Get it."
The real Deadhead deal is right here.

"This is by far the best pre 70's Grateful Dead music out there. This is a small slice of the four night show in 1969 at the Fillmore west. Any Deadhead that does not pick this up is being unfaithful to the band. The 10 CD box set is now history. The version of Dark star is awsome, jamming St. Stephen and pigpen heats up the harmonica. Get this today, [...]This set of tunes has a lot of long jams and sounds great.
