I think Im Home :)


I grew up listening to a lot of classic rock, in fact that's all I listened to.... About a year ago in January of 2009, I was talking to the family friend who lives in Seattle, we were discussing music and he told me to listen to the song Shakedown Street. I checked it out and from that moment I was hooked. I caught my first show about a week ago and Shea's and haven't shaken the feeling of pure joy and the feeling of fitting in somewhere a week later. I want more, one wasn't enough.

I finally found my home :)

Sound advice

I appreciate Lovecrafts advice, it will certainly keep peace in the family and the divorce lawyer away! Although it would help if my wife catches the Grateful Dead bug as well. Keep your fingers crossed for me.

advice for fool4thedead

before you continue to spend a fortune on GD records, do yourself a favor and check out some of the free stuff that's available.

I'm not saying you shouldn't ever buy the official releases. Often the sound quality is superior, and you get the great packaging loaded with pictures, information, etc.

But also check out sites like this one:

There you can simply type "Grateful Dead" in the search window, and thousands of shows will be available for free. You can download any of them, plus many of the shows also can be streamed live, meaning you can listen to them through a built-in layer on the screen immediately, without having to download the show.

This way you can slow down a little, and explore the different eras of the GD without forcing your wife to cut up your credit card : )

Hi, I love the GD live albums here on this site. Can anyone tell me which album I should buy next? I only have Road Trips Vol. 3 No. 1 + Bonus Disc, Dick's Picks 1 + 2, and Europe 72. I was planning to get Live Dead next, but does anybody know an amazing live album available here? Thanks!
