Sonically, this might be great, but no show with Donna need be released in this or any series. She seems like a nice person, but she just didn't have a good voice then and her timing was terrible.
In the shows where Donna cannot hear the monitor (most shows pre-hiatus), she often sounds off-key. Post-hiatus, she was better able to hear the monitor and, frankly, often sounds great. I personally don't like the PITB wail no matter when it was done, but let's be fair. Jerry, Bobby and Phil had their off-nights too, we just tend to be more forgiving of them for their instrumental contributions.
Really a craze,the voice of Bob and the guitars on the left and right channels are totally wrapping my inner head,softly,thanks!
Each album we can listen to,where Donna sings is completely a tender care and softness of voice,for example listen the Ace album of Bob Weir,or the Wake of The Flood,or the Shakedown Street ;with no doubt a great experience in our ears.Ok,I think.
This is a killer show. Top-notch.
Yeah fromius, giver her a break Dajokr...
....that was the guy above me. I actually defended her.
Is there anyway I can purchuse D.P. #1, without having to commit to all the others? I'm an ''old-time'' dead-head & prefer the pre-1980 shows...so I would like to ''pick & choose'' the C.D.'s I would like to buy...besides the $95.00 + is a little much for a half-breed hippie like myself...THANK YOU---TOM-TOM.
So far only the subscription has been offerred for sale. We know that Vol 1 will be 5/25/77 and what the cover looks like, but the full details have yet to be announced.
This cover art is OK, star wars theme I get it. I miss the old fractal art of dicks picks. I want to see some spiral fractals. Something I would hallucinate if I were at this show on LSD25. ;-} Something inspiring and imaginative.
