As the above description notes, although this is marketed as the soundtrack of the GD movie, it is also among the best of the Vault series releases of Dead shows. Most fans would probably peg 1974 as a key year for Dead shows ('68-69, '72, and '73 being close runners-up), along with 1977 this set of recordings is rapidly moving me to side with those prefer '74, if forced to choose between, although the first recorded dead show I heard and loved was 5/8/77 (like many others I'm sure). Although I never saw the band live-- so take this comment with a big grain of salt --the 1974 shows are sort of dreamy, jazzy, and sweetly expansive sounding. Not as frenetic as late '60s Dead (another one of my favorites), or as tight as late '70s stuff, but probably the more musically adventurous for it, which is what brings me to listen to the Dead, ultimately. The track listing of this 5-disc set is like one huge dream-show, and the multitrack sound is impeccable (a characteristic not often found in the earlier Dick's Picks). Disc 1's Eyes- China Doll is nice as the review above says. Right now I am listening to the ~13 min "He's Gone" on Disc 4. One thing to love about the multitrack mix on this is that you get excellent spatial imaging also, Phil's bass is clear and dynamic as can be, with the drums not overpowering. I have yet to listen to Discs 2,3, and 5 yet, so this is not such an informed review! But. Based on what I have heard so far, alone, this is one to buy for SURE. Get this over any of the new early '70s Dick's Picks if you love a great sounding recording and aren't fanatical about hearing full, unedited shows versus a compilation of the best from several nights.
