    Not terrible but widely passed on by Deadheads and the worst studio album until Terrapin Station. . The good songs (which not all are) are underdeveloped and sound goofy or overproduced and forced with so-called perfect backing vocals in which Donna is especially annoying. Yuck.

      I have a version of this where the side 2 label is on both sides. Anyone else encounter this??

        I’ve got a slight variant here with the runout info: side a: GD-01-A-M46-Re-2 MR (in circle) TLC (in square) (delta symbol) 18380(3) side b: GD-01-B-M46-Re-2 MR (in circle) TLC (in square) (delta symbol) 18380-x(1)

        Does anyone know when this might be from? I checked all the other entries and cannot find a match. Also there is no etching in the runout with the 1973 date. Thanks! Record sounds amazing and I’ve it since high school (c. 1997).

          Always loved this album. Got it immediately upon original release & played it over & over. In later years Jerry Garcia said in a couple of interviews that 'Stella Blue' was perhaps his favorite of all the Grateful Dead songs.

          I was part of the bands fan club at the time of the albums release and about 6 months or so after it came out they sent a notice to all the members informing us that the record was being counterfeited! They described what to look for in order to identify bogus pressings. Those included a white catalogue number on the spine instead of orange, as well as square corners on the outer shrink wrap sticker instead of rounded as was on the original. I found a couple of these copies in a discount bin a few years later... and which I still have unopened! I'm surprised there is no mention of this here on Discogs.

            On a Dead kick....and I admit I never gave this LP a spin....Just perusing it....I'm not feeling it...esp after the rollercoaster ride of Mars Hotel.I just received a NM vinyl copy of Terrapin Station I can't wait to spin...another release I haven't had much experience with...I could listen to the 1ST part of the song Terrapin Station forever....classic Garcia.Next to explore....Shakedown Street and Heaven...I heard Workingsmans Dead back in 71 while shopping for bell bottoms... my favorite release.American Beauty comes in 2ND and Blues for Allah 3RD....of course all the earlier LPs are a blast.I have yet to explore the 80s....I was working in a record store when GREY came out....I wasn't all that about it then...I'll have to listen....
