    A bit boring. Watch Bob walk around and point out buildings where Dead-related stuff happened.

    BTW, I'm listening to April 23, 1977 at work.

    I miss Pigpen. They lost their "soul" when he left the Band.

    I used to walk by the Mars Hotel every morning on my way to work (mid-70's).

    He added that crucial blues element. But I'm certainly OK with some "liquid" Dead from '77, too.

    I agree they're all cowboy type tunes but they're not all slow. I played the whole album today and really enjoyed it. Will spin again this weekend.

    I've liked what I've heard, but have not been able to give it a complete listen. Got the vinyl in todays mail though.

    He toured with Dead & Co all summer. Now all he can do is 9 campfire dates? Old man like David Gilmour. I bet Jerry would still be touring regularly.

    BTW I like the album, streamed it 3x yesterday.

    Me too, I was living in San Fran when he passed. By coincidence, the night before, I was on a Grateful Dead tear. Must have been the vortex...

    Hey Now,

    Yeah, he died on my birthday. For over 20 years I am always thinking about him then.

    This is a great read! Thanx for all the thoughts on IMO the greatest band ever. I love to listen to their music.

    I wouldn't be here if i wasn't a dead head so before i get stoned (meaning having rocks thrown at me ). Bob Weir is a legend and an American Icon.
    I wasn't getting this one. Maybe its a mood thing. I'll give it a shot later. maybe just not for me. I'm not knocking anyone else's opinion.

    I never really liked Weir on his own, The Dead however are timeless
