... Not unless the Dead themselves make it available here at some point. These stealthy shows (due to having been banned from Hampton after the previous year) are two of the greatest shows the GD ever played, certainly two of the very best latter-day shows (especially true of the magical 10/9 show), but you can order this at the Dead's own site for HALF the price currently showing here. Spend $140 to buy from a 3rd party dealer, or buy directly from GD Merchandising for $70. Up to you!

Even $70 seems excessive for six CDs, but it's probably worth it given the quality of the shows, the incredible sound quality (beyond even the fine bootlegs that have circulated from the start), and the nifty packaging. Just save yourself another $70 and buy it direct from the band.

The Dead's Fall 1989 Tour began with a couple of surprise shows at Hampton Coliseum in Virginia. The Dead had recently brought back We Bid You Goodnight in July while Death Don't Have No Mercy followed in September. Jerry had done an interview with Relix around this time talking about reviving songs for the band's 25th Anniversary with both a new studio album and a live album in the works.

10-8-89:
The first show opens with a nice version of Foolish Heart before giving way to Walkin' Blues. Candyman is nice and was a bit rare at the time being played only every once in a while by this time. Me And My Uncle->Big River, Stagger Lee, Queen Jane, Bird Song->Promised Land are all great but had a lot wondering where the "surprise" was in these surprise shows. The second set opened with the first Help On The Way/Slipknot since 1985 and is quite well performed. Next up, a strong Victim Or The Crime gives way to a strong Eyes Of The World. The Drums->Space segment is really good as the following I Need A Miracle->The Wheel->Gimmie Some Lovin'->Morning Dew smokes. And We Bid You Goodnight ends the show on a great note.

10-9-89:
The second night's show opens with a Feel Like A Stranger that most will know as being the one from Without a Net: Live. The new album title track Built To Last is played quite well as is the following Little Red Rooster. Ramble On Rose is a joy to behold. We Can Run is better than some while Jack A Roe is hot. Stuck Inside Of Mobile With The Memphis Blues Again is it's usual fun self. The set ending Row Jimmy->The Music Never Stopped is very well played.

I'm thrilled to see these "Warlocks" shows released on CD. The sound quality is infinitely better than my old audience bootleg. This was a very special appearance for The Dead, and as a nod to their temporary name change, they played like they were 20 years younger again.

The second show is legendary in GD annals, particularly the second set. They don't stop for a single breath, from the "Playin'" opener to the last note of "Good Lovin'". Sandwiched between is, in my opinion, the best set the band played since the early-70's. It's an hour and a half plus of uninterrupted Dead heaven!

The setlist was a total throwback to one of those crazy-electric 1969 shows. The band was on, and the audience was totally tuned in. The roar of the crowd at the first note of "Dark Star" still sends shivers up and down my spine every single time I heat it! It was they first "Dark Star" they'd played in years, and at that very moment, it was the single greatest thing that could have happened for Deadheads lucky enough to have been there. And to finish it all off with an "Attics" encore, after all those years, well it's really just too much to ask for. They really were The Warlocks again!

"Formerly The Warlocks" captures The Grateful Dead at their very best! It celebrates everything that was special about The Dead, and may epitomize the band better than any other show they've ever played. This box set will remind you why we loved them so much to begin with.

WARNING: DO NOT OVERPAY FOR THIS ITEM. IT IS AVAILABLE ON THE DEAD'S WEBSITE FOR $70 BRAND NEW. People are trying to take advantage of folks who are unaware of purchasing items directly from the Dead. Do not encourage this foul practice by purchasing this item for more than $70.

That being said, these are legendary shows that feature the band at the height of their later day creative energies. They just started to use the then new MIDI technology to add a whole new palatte of color and tone to their sound. This seemed to inspire them to new heights of sonic exploration. Who's idea was it to bring back the wealth of old favorites Dark Star, Death Don't Have No Mercy, Attics of My Life, We Bid You Goodnight, Help on the Way/Slipknot? We have Mr. Phil Lesh to thank for that. Thanks Phil!
