4.0 out of 5 stars The second "Best of" album, December 2, 2006
This review is from: What A Long Strange Trip It's Been: The Best Of The Grateful Dead (Audio CD)
Back in the old days, the 1970's, when we used to go to shows this was one of those tapes that everybody had. We all owned the original albums at home, but whenever a road trip was involved both this and Skeletons were always in the car, van or whatever, along with our concert tapes. This collection seems short by today's cd standards, but this was back in the old days.

The thing that was nice about this collection was that it drew heavily on the official live lps as well as including the single versions of Dark Star/Born Cross Eyed. The original vinyl release had the timing for the Bear's Choice album version but was the studio version. The live version was longer and this would've put the lp side over a decent time limit. For the cd, the live version replaces the studio and reverting to the originally planned version. By the way, the pictures of the band on the inside of the lp version are nice. This was also the first place that the dancing top hot skeletons turned up as I remember. It's still a good listen but my only wish or two at the time was that they would've used Playing from Bob's Ace and something from Garcia.
