2006-08-09 For Dead Heads Only / Grateful Dead
in the first, i'm not Dead Heads...just one Grateful Dead fan. this is a bootleg of Grateful Dead, live recorded in San Francisco on 1st of March 1968. of course just original members play on this cd. especially i like Pigpen's organ playing, i like this line-up very much. i can listen to "Dark Star", "St. Stephen", "The Eleven" and "Turn On Your Lovelight" that tracks are included in Live Dead album in 1969, on this bootleg. i was interested in listening to these tracks by just original members (without Tom Constanten and Mickey Hart)... because i was interested why they changed the sound so much after Aoxomoxoa in 1969. ("Cosmic Charlie" and "St. Stephen" from Aoxomoxoa are included in this bootleg.) so this live recording may mean the one of the transition point for them? i really like to listen to Grateful Dead's live recordings especially between 1966 and 1974. because their sound was so caostic in that period for me...
