@space, maybe you’ve seen this before, but I just watched it the other day. Among other things, Jerry talks about how they made Dead Set, and that it was the best they’d captured their live performance energy, up to that point.

IIRC, I attended 10 of the 15 Warfield shows. I really love Reckoning, the acoustic album that came out of the shows. My favorite live Dead album is still Live/Dead, the album that initially turned me on to the band. I also love Europe ‘72, but it is only partially live with the vocals done in the studio. One live album that I believe is under appreciated is Without a Net.

Bill, tgo

You know, I was pretty sure he was talking about Dead Set, but maybe he meant Reckoning? They both came out before this interview in ’81. Maybe he was being ambiguous about them both. I don’t know, if I get confused I guess I know what to do (same as what Jerry would do?)

I agree Without a Net is fantastic and under appreciated. Those were my days in the crowd. And I love Live/Dead, it's always felt sort of like a psychedelic symphony to me. Like the band declaring that rock & roll is legitimate music with historical significance. It’s an album I always play all the way through.
