the first Dead recording were pretty remarkable. saw them only once at the Hollywood Bowl.

@TDK60, one of the three I own if I don't count John Oswald's remix, Greyfolded (which I highly recommend).

Hi N.G.H. I don't know that one. I like the first 3 and parts of others. (Not a Deadhead but I *am* a Jefferson Airplane maniac.)

Alla youse! Yes!
And Scott, imperceptible segue!
Avatar 5:45pm northguineahills:

Greyfolded is more of atmospheric ambient instrumental remix of years of live performances in the early 70s, and one of the few to have the Dead's (sort of) blessing.

I didn't make it home in time comment on that g.d. Grateful Dead track but did do some research through "The Robert M. Petersen Papers" and got inspired, nonetheless. And Phil's bass line was sublime.
