    Hey now!New to the site. Kind souls connect with me!

    I'm 44 and was blessed to start seeing The Grateful Dead when I was just 12! Rich Stadium in Buffalo. Hit mostly all the East Coast shows until 96' and then our lives changed for sure. Went to Penn State University and I am a social worker. My son is almost through high school and then I'm looking for adventure! I am not sure where what or with whom? Auroraville, Peace Corp, meet the man who rocks my world??

    New here

    I just signed up here and wanted to tell you my story with the Grateful Dead. I am 56 and consider myself a pretty sophisticated listener of rock music, but I admit I never really listened to a lot of the Grateful Dead. Recently I got hold of a lot of their catalog and am loving it. I do prefer the early albums, they sound unrehearsed, off the cuff and simplistically produced, but it gives them so much charm. The albums in the late 70's seem over produced to me... too slick and missing the raw charm. I now know why these guys were so revered in concert. I just listened to Dead Set and was stunned at how good it, and they are live. Astounding really. So far ahead of so many bands. The heartfelt vocals are so damn good. Truly an eye opening experience for me. I took me too long to get here. All the best.

    response to another comment in this thread about MAGA deadheads

    unfortunately, bands with as big a cult following as the dead can garner a wide variety of people in their fanbase, and the trump crew is not exempt. most every deadhead i know is vehemently against fascism, many of them outright anarchists or at the very least socdems. i wouldn't let the trumpists represent the dead just because they have big numbers in the community. jerry did not stand for fascism, racism, or bigotry in any form, and he absolutely would not want his music being used to support that ideology.

Exciting to hear this music in brilliantly remastered form, not to mention 7/2/71! One comment, all the original live tracks on the new release show Fillmore East. I believe three are from Manhattan Center and one from Winterland?
