Totally Tantalizing & Teriffic!
on August 4, 2015
If you love the Grateful Dead, you NEED this! The sound is pristine, and probably is the best sounding two-track tape transfer you will ever hear. The band is smokin' hot. Keith is up in the mix, which really allows one to appreciate his great talent. Even Donna Jean is sort of, maybe, kind of, close to being on key for a change. That's a relief as well as a very rare thing.
I purchased the Winterland '77 box last year. At the time, I couldn't justify buying that AND the '73 box. So, I figured I would pick up '73 this year. Well, the'73 box is not so easy to find now and I started to panic. I looked here on Amazon and found it at a fair price still sealed in original packaging and authentic in all respects. What a sigh of relief for me since I thought I was gonna have to pay through the nose due to my procrastination. There's no bonus disc, but that's OK by me ... incredibly, the bonus disc ADDS a few hundred dollars to the price of the entire box. Geeze, I love the Dead about as much as anyone, but that's a bit steep to get one extra disc.
This '73 box comes with a couple of extra goodies, including a Good 'Ol Grateful Dead button which is really cool. All in all, another excellent offering from the GD. If you were ever thinking of buying this, get it now. I'm not sure that it will be around much longer. Don't be foolish like me by putting this off ... as one reviewer here said, in 5 years the cost of this won't matter to you ... what will matter then is the music, and you'll be glad you got this while you could. This is essential to any GD collection. Highly recommended.
