Thats weird - a band that made its bones by playing live used the studio to sweeten up up its "Live" sound.
I have mixed feelings about this.
Skull and Roses and E72 are two great albums in GD history.I love 'em.
A non Head has probably heard the J.B.Goode or Me and Bob McGee or the Bertha from GD Live and the One More Sat Nite from E72 on the radio.The non Head would think the Dead is about the live show and POOF !!! a legend is born.
About the Skull and Roses Bertha - they should have sweetened some of Jerry's notes from the solo !
