Re: Best Box Set out ?

I'd recommend the Fillmore Complete Recordings, but two things: 1) the 16-track Kaplan/Healy transfers sound better than the official recordings 2) the box is out of print.

I like the way Steppin' Out sounds more than I do the '72 box set of the same dates. I think its a fair recommendation, but it is a bummer that is nothing more than a greatest hits of '72 set. It's too bad the entire '72 box doesn't sound that warm and rich.

If you don't have the GD Movie Soundtrack 5CD set, I think that might be where I'd send you next. It, like Steppin' Out, is another one of the better sounding Norman masterings. Has my all-time favorite, 32-minute Playing in the Band.
You aren't interesting or clever when you write or speak in the lyrics of others. Rather, what are YOUR words?

NYCDave-- Is right about about the sound and playing quality of Fillmore West 69 Complete. It is stellar. It is ofcourse permanently out of stock. If you can get one or get cdrs of it -- do so. Winterland 73 and 77 are great!

It's a pretty cool set, inside is a printing of the local newspaper article about it.

My mom, was interviewed and mentioned in it, is baby me. It talks about the Grateful Dead "family"
