5.0 out of 5 stars Could be best music DVD box set ever! April 23, 2012
This is the most amazing box set to come out on DVD in the history of music! I know how that sounds but I can not believe what you get for the Price. Except for two of the Discs I already owned everything else in the box and I still think it's great. P,us at this price if i had bought the two discs on their own it would come to almost the same amount. For those of you who were ticked off that very little of this box set was still avalible on their own you get it all at a greatly reduced price. I paid almost $40 for the Winterland DVD and close to $50 for the DVD of the Grateful Dead movie. Even the vault series discs were expensive when they came out. This is what you get:

The Grateful Dead movie which was originally released in theaters. This was shot on film so it looks great. The audio improvements are nothing short of incredible.

Closing Of Winterland which was originally a TV broadcast. Again amazing sound. Nice mix. Three sets of music plus the Blues Brothers to boot.

Dead Ahead while not my favorite of their DVD's it does have a great acoustic set at the beginning. It's also shot at Radio City in New York

So Far: this is the first time this has been out on DVD. I have had the video for years. Good set list. Songs are done part live in studio and the all of a sudden it's live in front of an audience. You have to watch to see what I am talking about. It's like a visual of a lot of live albums. Where they splice different sections of the same song from different performances to try and make a stronger track. That's what they have done here but they are not hiding it.

Ticket To New Years: Television broadcast of a new years eve show in Oakland. Great set but a little shorter then their other shows.

This is a gorgeous set that combines basically all the previously released DVDs in to one giant box set for a disgustingly low price. You get all the bonus material fully intact from the original DVD releases, a full disc of new bonus stuff, and So Far for the first time on DVD. The bottom line here is that many of these DVDs have been out of print for years --- copies have been hard to find and often pricey. I think if you get this box set along with Crimson, White, & Indigo and Rocking The Cradle you've got 99% of their entire official video catalog.

Why don't they release more stuff on blu-ray?
People keep asking this question over and over. Most of the footage they have of the band was shot in lower quality / lower resolution analog tape as opposed to a higher resolution film or digital video (which didn't exist yet). The Grateful Dead Movie was shot on a high quality film stock converted to high definiton and it was shot in a full wide screen format. That's exactly why it deserved and got the blu-ray treatment. The rest of this material like the Closing of Winterland or even the 1989-91 stuff was all recorded and mastered to analog tape of some sort. It simply wouldn't benefit that much from a conversion to an HD format. It has the old 4:3 aspect ratio and the original 480 resolution, it just isn't that great to begin with. It's like watching an old episode of The Cosby Show on an HD channel -- yeah it might look a little better but it's not going to make much of a difference.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Dead Have Risen! April 19, 2012
By Kwyjibo
Dead Heads, this is the box set we've been waiting for. Some of the best Grateful Dead concert films ever are included in this set, but the real treat is the bonus disc with unreleased concert films. This collection is essential for every true Dead Head.

5.0 out of 5 stars More like "All the Bonuses Combined" April 19, 2012
I grabbed this set and immediately popped in the bonus discs. I'm incredibly impressed, to say the least, with the amount of new material on this set that I haven't seen before. Sure, I own most of the other films/concerts already, but the good stuff exclusive to this set was well worth my purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for someone who's late to the party... July 15, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I've always had a healthy respect for Jerry Garcia and the Grateful Dead, but I'm one of the people that was born in the 1960's and came to know them by way of their brief appearance in the Billboard Top 100 with "Touch of Grey" (and to a lesser extent "Hell In a Bucket") and the subsequent MTV video featuring the dancing skeleton puppets. Their brief rennaissance, which began in 1987 and fizzled by 1992 (after which time Jerry turned his attention to his acoustic side projects with David Grisman-a large percentage of which were released posthumously) left many of us wanting more but not really knowing where to look. I DID listen to the nationally syndicated radio show "The Grateful Dead Hour" at one point, but this stopped airing in Chicago some time ago and is only available as a webcast I believe.

My generation are much more familiar with Phish,which zoomed in to fill the void after Jerry Garcia's death in 1995, as well as other jam bands such as String Cheese Incident, Dave Matthews Band, Widespread Panic, and a number of others who took the same improvisational music approach and moved it in different directions.

At any rate, it's taken me about 2-3 years to study/revisit their catalog, during which time I've picked up a variety of the "Dick's Picks" series, the three "Vault" releases, two of the "Road Trips" series, some "Pure Jerry" titles, all of the Garcia/Grisman releases, the Old & In the Way bluegrass titles, the Merl Saunders/Jerry Garcia Keystone recordings, a greatest hits compilation, some free mp3 downloads from the group's own website and various other live discs made available by Arista. I've also read "Dark Star", "Garcia: An American Life", "Garcia: A Signpost To New Space", "The Complete Annotated Grateful Dead Lyrics" and "Dead Letters".
