User_25940_ What a show. The Dead's arguably greatest studio album was beautifully realized in a live format by a band that I had no idea was this good. Bobby, Phil and co. just nailed each and every song; and it wasn't just a tight recreation...there were many exploratory offerings, songs like Black Peter and Dire Wolf were opened up, and the mixture of great backing musicians and singers gave them a fuller feel than almost any versions I had ever seen the Dead play live. And then the fun really began when Bobby announced Trey was joining the band for the last song on the album, "Casey Jones". And from there on an amazing performance took off into the stratosphere...
There's not a lot to say after that...just find it, get it in your iTunes, and you'll probably listen to it many, many times. Pre-Trey was amazing, but with Trey it was transcendent and spiritual, musically speaking.
