The never ending GD Live discussion . -

The 3.16 Landover MD show , which was Dead houred in the 90's probably , should considered for a future commercial release . The latest in the band's career that the Live release series have delved in is I believe December 1992 . -

Seeing as D Gans has chosen material from the triumphant 1960's output ... I couldn't help but think that gems such as that MD 93 one should sometime b e considered for a live release . - When the Dead's music was drenched with that certain special ingredient , which i've seen many times described before . Then their music would climb to another plain , and the Live release CD s have nailed it on many ocassions releasing great and worthy recordings into the mainstream commercial marketplace ...

The band seemed a Little erratic sometimes , perhaps in the song selection in 1993 , 94 and ' 95 . But there are an absolutely very high amount of strong performances . The pre drums sections on many shows are worthy of mentioning . Many whole shows . And many second sets in their entirety . Jerry G was less sick in the 70's and so forth . But those last three years , enormously neglected have for a really intelligently crafted amount of Live qualitative release material for the public . - Thanks ...
