Didn't I supply you with Ace Matt?


No, I have the remastered CD. Before that, I had the older CD. It's the only Bob Weir album I own too, although, come to think of it - I have that 1976 Kingfish record on CD-R.

What did I send then. I'm sure I sent you three. I recall one was Robert Hunter and I think one was Quah. Was sure Ace was the third.

I honestly can't recall. I barely remember last week, Paul. If it was you that sent the Robert Hunter CD-Rs then I've still got them. I've got the Quah CD though, so I doubt it was that. That's a good album, as I'm sure you know. I later got the Jorma disc from '79, and it's not half as good.

I wouldn't have bothered with the countless live albums but studio?

Other thanthe two "obvious ones", I really love Blues for Allah, Terrapin Station and Mars Hotel the best - in that order.

But I like Wake of the Flood, Aoxomoxoa and Shakedown Street too.

I’m particularly partial to:

Blues For Allah
Aoxomoxoa
Anthem Of The Sun

1st album (preferably the remixed CD)
Garcia
Terrapin Station
Wake Of The Flood


…more or less in that order.

Looks like no-one's keen on the three 80's albums.

Actually I would break the dead down into two categories:
One studio albums: I'm the rare bird who likes them I would order the classic ones

1. Wake of the Flood
2. Live?Dead(but in truth there is much better see below)
3. Blues for Allah
4. Anthem Of The Sun
5. Europe 72(although the other full shows of this era are better)
6. American Beauty
6. History of the Grateful Dead, Volume One (Bear's Choice)
7. Terrapin Station
8. Aoxomoxoa
9 Reckoning ( I was at 3 of these shows)

Solo
Garcia
Ace
Robert Hunter Album

In regards to live that is where they shine and listening to their live shows is the way to go.
Best eras
69, 71, 73-74,77, Warfield and Radio City 80's shows,
I was at Dick Picks 15 (Englishtown) and the one guys are talking about at Nassau Coliseum with Brandford Marsalas (last time I saw Jerry).
I loved the Radio City Shows with three sets and the drum sets with Billy Cobham.

Also saw the last Jerry - Dark Star/Saint Stephen Show at Nassau Coliseaum in 79 (talked about on Sirius Dead station)

But is it studio? Largely recorded live and then edited.

There are live elements, but I think of it as a studio album.

Not unlike a lot of Zappa's in that regard.

There are four live albums in your list of nine classic studio albums!

Having played Blues for Allah again this afternoon - the second side is nowhere near as strong as the first

Is it...?

A good point, well made Chas, but I find "Blues for Allah" and "Sand Castles & Glass Camels" somewhat dull and a bit of a dog's breakfast
