Not Flashy, Just Exactly Perfect Though

Excellent!! Old-time Deadhead, but not comprehensive expert on DS; however, this one has real energy, creativity and many moments when you can feel the magic descend. A highly recommended listen.

So true - beginning at 6:57, lift off! Magnificence all the way to the end.

This one does kick some ass. And it does make you stop what whatever it is you are doing and just listen. And the sound quality is just amazing. A peak Dead experience.

This is a beauty. Just exactly perfect - melodic and passionate with everyone locked in. And on this one Donna was great - sang with precision and without so much of the metallic sound that she sometimes had or any of the caterwauling effect.

Such a terrific, full throated, yet tender effort by Jerry with some fluid and passionate guitar work. But I cannot get used to the caterwauling effect around 9:16. Otherwise absolutely gorgeous. And I actually like Donna on Scarlet Begonias - she adds a lot sometimes.
