This volume of Road Trips captures a good pair of partial Grateful Dead performances from 1980. While both shows have good energy, the master recording does appear to drag ever so slightly especially on the third CD.

Unfortunately it DOES NOT come with the bonus CD that the previous Road Trips releases had.

Over priced on Amazon, interested parties should consider [...].

I should start out by saying that I find the performances very good but the problem with this release is that the tape speed wasn't corrected and, as a result, the songs all run slow by about 3.2% which is alot. These shows were taken from standard cassettes make on a tape deck that ran slow. All the songs are played strongly in my humble opinion and, if this was adjusted to the right speed, it would get 5 stars. One major plus is that there's NO BONUS DISC with this one so if you don't have the money upon first release, there's nothing to miss. Another major plus is that you can hear all the instruments quite well in the mix (including Brent's Keyboards).

A compilation of two otherwise good shows from eastern colleges in '80 is marred by two things really. As other have noted, the tracks run slow. As a fretless bass player, they run about a quarter-step flat (in other words, half the spacing of one fret on guitar/bass; each fret is a half step). As far as I know, the Dead always used concert tuning (A = 440 Hz), and the drag in Bobby's voice also belies this. By the way, if the resultant master runs slow, it's because the source ran fast, not slow. Think about it. If the source copy runs slow, more information is captured in less tape distance, and when played back at the proper speed, will be fast (this was common in the 70s especially, when all those "helium tapes" were the result of dying batteries or worn out tape machine spindles). Thus, the source on this one must have been a bit fast, rendering the end result a bit slow. Either that or they just made a right mess of it while mastering.

The other thing that bothers me is that I listen to a fair amount of music using headphones, and these recordings have a very annoying "pop" on every bass drum kick, rendering this one nearly unlistenable except perhaps on a close-n-play.

If you dig '80, get "Go to Nassau," you won't be sorry.

I picked this one up because of the impressive set list and I didn't have much from this era. the sound quality is really bad however. It's so poor I don't really have any desire to listen to it. I'm actually surprised they released it. The sound quality is comparable with a lot of the cassette tapes I had of GD shows I had in the 80's. Or not much better

i listened to this today through headphones, and i can't find where it runs slow. maybe it is just my ear, but i can't detect any thing wrong with it. this is a solid pick with no songs running over 14 minutes, including playing in the band. i highly recommend this. if you are like me, the older dead appeal to us morethan later stuff, but i like this road trips. i liked brett when he first started with the band, mainly because he sang backup more than lead. i'm not that crazy about his voice as a lead singer, but i like his backup vocals. again, this is a great road trips,so jump on it now !!
