    you've got them all. (Seriously, that's about the only Dead album I know anything about. I'm not a Deadhead per se, but every so often I'll put it on and pretend I have any idea what it might have been like to live in Big Sur in 1968 or so.)

    Steal a trillion, too big to fail. Steal a thousand, go to jail.

      It's just....well....studio.

      And with the Grateful Dead, that's an incredibly significant distinction. Every song on the album has been played live in such a manner as to completely blow-away in quality of performance the corresponding studio version.

      In other words, their studio albums don't do the band justice, and they'd be the first to admit it. ;)




      Somebody has to do something, and it's just incredibly pathetic that it has to be us.
