Review

The Grateful Dead's erstwhile guitarist teams with former Lou Reed bassist Wasserman for what amounts to a bare-bones Dead show. . . . Despite Wasserman's athletic work, there's still too much aimless noodling to make any grateful converts. . . . -- Entertainment Weekly

This is by far the best CD I have ever owned. Bob Weir's vocals are incredibly strong and beautiful. Rob Wasserman is a master and his sound is like no other. It is amazing that there are only 2 musicians and 2 instruments on this CD. "Looks Like Rain" alone could carry this CD. Every single song is awesome. I can't say enough about it - buy it and you'll see !

Check out track six. A hauntingly beautiful "Looks Like Rain." I swear I can hear Jerry's mellow supporting rifts in the distant background! This album provides a nice visit back to the days of Heaven Help the Fool. Great job by Wasserman on bass, too. Thanks for a great overall listening experience!

Bob Weir certainly takes his licks from a lot of Deadheads, but I don't count myself among them. I have always thought Weir's contributions were underrated, and several of his tunes are showstoppers. A couple of these make an appearance here (i.e., "Throwing Stones" and "Looks Like Rain"), but they don't really match the full band versions. Of much more interest are the true Weir solo tunes, which get nice understated acoustic renderings. Listened to all in one sitting, this one gets kinda dry, but it is definitely a nice change of pace, and if you're a Bob fan like me (hey, I know, Garcia is Garcia, but that doesn't mean you have to hate Bob!), you should definitely own this.

Weir/Wasserman Live was first released in January 1988 nearly a decade after most of the songs were recorded on their first tour together. The only exception is a little over halfway through the disc when Eternity kicks in recorded at a rehearsal in the Summer of 1992. The disc contains a nice cross selections of tunes from both Bob's work in the Dead and his outside projects. One song from Ace, four songs from Heaven Help The Fool, one song from the first Bobby and The Midnites album and one song, Fever, that had been recorded with Brian Melvin's Nightfood (featuring Jack Pastorius). Walkin' Blues, Looks Like Rain, Victim Or The Crime and Throwing Stones were in heavy rotation in the Dead's set lists at the time. Eternity would start appearing in the Dead's set lists in February 1993.

The disc begins with a flawless versions of Festival and Walkin' Blues. The Winners was a new song that began it's life with the Weir/Wasserman tour. Next up is the traditional folk song, K.C. Moan. Dead songs Looks Like Rain and Victim Or The Crime (originally played with Bobby and The Midnites in 1983/1984) are done in stunning performances. The live cover of Little Feat's Easy To Slip is, once again, very well done with a bit more space than on the Heaven Help The Fool album. Fever is mostly just Bob singing while being accompanied by Rob on the bass. A different arrangement than the Nightfood version which has a more "The Other One" feel to it. Eternity is a latter day classic and is very well done here. Next up are a trio of songs from Heaven Help The Fool and all benefit from having a stripped down feel.The disc ends with Rob's bass bit into a great Throwing Stones. All the songs, except Eternity, were recorded by John Cutler on a two track DAT and have a nice feel to them. The album was produced by Rob Wasserman pulling the songs together from several different shows while the disc has a very consistent feel to it. The disc is also maxed out timing wise at over 77 minutes.

If you just listen to it for what it is, this album is great. Bobby sounds great, with very nice renditions of "easy to slip" and "shade of grey". I love the "victim" on this cd as well. I dont know what else to say. Its a great CD for lying in bed, solo or otherwise.
