Except for the original vinyl pressing, every other copy of this album I've ever heard sounds like CRAP. The original CD release was particularly insulting. Leave it to Rhino to dig out the original master and lovingly transfer it to CD, as usual. This album now has a full-bodied and dynamic sound that it's NEVER had before; you're definitely hearing what the band heard in the studio when they listened to the final master. I can assure you that if you have the appropriate equipment, you'll be floored by the sound.
As far as the album itself, yeah, it's not one of the best things the band has ever done (hence the 4 stars), but it's worth buying just for Lost Sailor, which has been my long-time favorite Dead cut. You can get better Live versions of most of the other cuts on here but the studio version of Lost Sailor is something special. Not to be missed, especially given how great it sounds now.
"Go to Heaven" may not be an excellent studio album, but we all know that the Dead were at their best when playing live. You won't go to heaven with this one, but you won't go unrewarded.
