Does anyone know where to hear isolated instrument tracks for Dead songs? I.E isolate Bobby's guitar on Eyes of the World.

I'm not really an expert on the Dead archives, but you would probably have to have a copy made from the original multi-track tapes. Which are probably in the archives or the studio archives where the album was recorded. The chances of that happening seem slim, but again I don't know much about how the Dead archives are maintained.

That's a great link, thanks for posting, I've never heard it. I love hearing these practice nuggets of the boys - it's great to see how the songs morphed into what they are today.

Tons of Steel and Throwin' were on In The Dark. Were these rehearsals or studio cuts for that?

It was common for the GDead to debut'd the material live then recorded it later to an album.

You guys..of course are right the GD always flushed out new material live, sometimes for yeras before they recorded it, however I still find it odd that Booby would be practicing and or revamping a song he had played for2 years, in his apartment or wherever, when he probably was writing new songs at that time. Anyway I guess he just had some time on his hands.

Some bonus stuff on Jerry's solo debut album. It's fun to hear him playing with just an acoustic guitar and Billy backing up on drums.
