5.0 out of 5 stars An extraordinary and exhilarating collection, November 11, 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: So Many Roads: 1965-1995 (Audio CD)
During the last few years of the Dead's touring career, my buddies and I would sit in the parking lot and speculate (fantasize?) about the new tunes and how they might appear on the studio album that we all anticipated. It never happened, of course, and a great many fans were disappointed over the missed opportunity to hear those 1990's "new" tunes on album (even if we could get them on tapes). With the fifth disc of this box set, we finally get the goods. The rehearsal or studio cuts of "new" tunes like Weir's "Eternity" or the Garcia/Hunter "Days Between" are perfect--tight, imaginative, exporatory, everything you would expect from the Boys. They nicely round out what is a monumental collection of Dead material. More than a nice introduction for new fans or an important addition to old-school collectors, this box set is evidence of one of the last truly authentic American bands, and of what music, in the deepest and most complex sense of the word, can and should be about. This is no Limp Bizkit or Backstreet Boys transience. This is art, and art lasts.
