Editorial Reviews

No self-respecting Dead tape library lacks these April 1971 concerts! In the Midnight Hour; Turn On Your Lovelight ; their final live version of Alligator ; a stellar suite of Dark Star/St. Stephen with guest Tom Constanten; covers like Me and Bobby McGee and Sing Me Back Home , and classics like Truckin'; Casey Jones , and Uncle John's Band . If you had to own just one live Dead recording this just might be it.

This is a collection of exceptional songs played by a band that was clearly "on" those five nights at the Fillmore East. I have never heard such energy on the meager amount of concert tapes and live releases in my music collection. LAGTGD is bound to appeal to everyone. First of all, there is the amazing song selections. A few of the "hits" (i.e. "Truckin", "Sugar Magnolia", "Uncle John's Band") have been included, and this would serve as an excellent introduction for the newer listeners. Secondly, there are several songs that have "typically" played in an acoustic format but appear in its electric counterpart (i.e. "Ripple", "Dark Hollow"). Lastly, there are the jams...from Dark Star-->St Stephen-->NFA-->GDTRFB-->NFA to Alligator-->GDTRFB-->Cold Rain and Snow. And to top it all off, there's plenty of the Pig. (I just get a kick from listening to his extended "raps" on "Good Lovin" and "Lovelight").
(And you just can't beat the sound quality that these discs have to offer. I swear, you can even hear the boys breathe!)
Wow, there is just so many goodies on these discs to keep one interested for a lifetime. Yes, I might be a bit biased, as I am a Deadhead, but, trust me (as one who appreciates the musical and spiritual gifts these guys had to offer), this is the ONE that you should purchase (followed by: Live Dead, One from the Vault, and many of the Dick's Picks releases).
Thanks Jerry, Bobby, Phil, Billy, and Pigpen for the music. Thank you DL and the rest of the GDP staff for the spreading this gem to the masses.

This is kind of a companion piece to the "Skull & Roses" live album recorded during this same time frame and beloved by fans. It's culled from a 5-night run at the Fillmore East, a closing run actually. The fidelity is great - clear and strong and crisp. The band were a stripped-down 5-piece, down to one drummer and only Pigpen on keyboards. They would alternate between styles all night and between Garcia, Weir, and Pigpen taking lead vocals. They had a large songbook and could go in one of many directions at any point in time.

There's lots of hard-rocking Dead here, and lots of Pigpen fronting blues-edged material. There's lots of Garcia and Weir here too. Lots of country-inflected stuff, lots of psychedelic tinged jamming, lots of rock and roll. There's just boatloads of stuff. There are many great moments, starting with the opening version of "Truckin'" that boogies slow and strong and proves Bill Kreutzman a superb drummer. 1971 was a fine vintage and this is a caseload of the stuff.

Every Deadhead has thier personal favorite live Dead show. Maybe you were at a particular show and the recording brings back fond memories. Maybe it was a highlight of your favorite band line-up. Or maybe it has that one Jerry solo that makes your hair curl. This show however stands out as perhaps thier finest recording ever commercially released. I know it's a pretty ballsy thing to say, but one listen and you'll be carting this 4 disc set around with you wherever you go. First, the quality of the recording is flawless. The mix is perfect, it doesn't have that flat "soundboard" sound some of the Dead's tapes have. There's a real presence to the mix, like you can locate where everybody is just by listening. But that's just the beginning. The versions of the songs are some of the finest I've ever heard. Jerry's "Second That Emotion" is amazing. The jam in the middle of Pig's "Too Hard To Handle" is some of the best blues ever played by anybody. Bobby's version of "Me And My Uncle" is actually inspired. I could easily go on & on about every song in this collection, but I'd be wasting your time. Even if you think you don't need another live Dead album, you've GOT to have this one. (I actually haven't played a Dick's Picks in about a month!)

I've always seen the `71 Dead as a band changing its sound, or making it more diverse (EVEN more diverse). The dual drum attack was gone with Mickey Hart, Tom Constanten keyboard work was gone too, and new numbers were being added to the band's repertoire. Thus, the Dead's sound was changing. Bob Weir was gaining more well-diserved prominence on stage, usually performing cowboy-like songs (El Paso, Me & Me Uncle), and the sound of the group in general was tighter, less free-form-jam-rock. Anyway, that year featured some expanded "Other Ones" and "Dark Stars" too. So, as you can see, it is not easy to describe what was exactly going on, for it was band with a really continiously-evolving sound. To these ears of mine, it is a year of transition, the immediately preeceding step to the extremely beautiful `72 tour when the sound got richer (EVEN richer).
Anyhow, amongst this confusing commentary, there is surely a certainty: it is a very nice set (recommended most of all for people who have already got into the Dead world). The sound quality is simply great and clear, Pigpen was (as the liner notes rightly say) in his last healthy tour (the "Lovelight" included here is one of the best ever released); Jerry Garcia was playing beautifuly as always; Bob Weir was, as I said before, really growing, Phil Lesh kept on being an outstanding driving force; Kreutzmann was playing better than ever and we even get some nice keyboard touches from special guest T.C.
Who cares 'bout reviews anyway? Let there be songs to fill the air.
