Ok Not a Dead head never was never could be but I, as many, have heard them over the years. I did buy one of their albums in the mid/late 70's when it came out. Steal Your Face. I had heard lots of their stuff played here and there but was not buying it. Some songs i really did like. So after going thru all the music I picked in a garage sale, i am just now playing Workingman's Dead.
ok All the stuff I do like is on this album. It's a keeper... never too old to learn

Steal Your Face is a very weak release. The (still) running joke is *Steal Your Money*. It was a rip-off. If you bought Blues For Allah, the previous release, you'd more than likely be a Dead Head after listening to that studio recording, or just a "committed casual fan." The best live recordings are the Dick's Picks, Road Trips and the current Dave's Picks series. The live recordings from the late '60's and most of the '70's are the ones you should look for.

Wow...GD blocked the sale of all the bootlegs. What a shame since its the only thing really worth collecting besides the new live Rhino releases

Discogs blocked the sale of all bootlegs, Grateful Dead didn't do this discogs did. As discogs systematically takes down all bootlegs you can occasionally find one that they haven't gotten around to blocking yet, but this is a general discogs policy and all bootlegs are being blocked from sale on the site.

I noticed they blocked the sale of most bootlegs, I was just looking at a Television bootleg from my collection and came here for more info and it said the sales on the LP were blocked... wonder what initiated the crackdown

Im feeling pretty grateful for this years releases- GSTL, The Daves Picks Releases (especially #23&24), and now this RFK '89 Box... So killer.

Hey does anyone know if there is a version of Franklin's Tower released on vinyl that is longer than 6mins (possibly a live version)? Heard it played recently but cant track it down, help would be greatly appreciated!

There are vinyl releases of One From The Vault, both bootleg and official, though I can't say if its longer than 6 mins. Seems as though I remembered that one being kinda on the long side.

Sadly, there is much ignorance and misinformation in this world. For example, did you know after Jerry's coma in the mid 80s he had to be taught to pretty much do everything all over again. He could not play music. He had to have Merl Sauners teach him again. So after the coma, he's pretty much a new musician trying to measure up to his old self. Pretty damn tough by any measure. Those of you listening to studio material and judging the band are making a huge error. The Dead are not a studio band. Never have been and never will be. Best band in the history of rock and roll IMHO. Jerry Garcia was a amazing musician. It became a question of getting him interested. He worked his ass off compared to most musicians. Those of you who want to put them down for drugs obviously were not around in the 60s.
