To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Sicuramente un album importante, molto affascinante, a partire da titolo e copertina. Resta che il meglio di quanto io abbia ascoltato dei Greatful Dead sia di gran lunga il Live Dead. Se , a mio modesto parere St. Stephen , Dupree's Diamond Blues, Rosemary , Doin' That Rag , China Cat Sunflower sono ancora pezzi vivi e vegeti ed evocano non solo quanto di buono fatto da Garcia &Co, ma anche i colori ed il clima del periodo, le restanti tracce le trovo datate. E per datate intendo che trovano il loro posto là, quando furono scritti, perdendo invece forza oggi.
Musik von einer Band aus einer Zeit, die viele schlichtweg als gut bezeichneten. The Grateful Dead hatten nie den ganz großen Erfolg in Deutschland. Schade eigentlich, denn ihr musikalischer Ansatz war stets hörenswert. Klar, auch auf diesem Album sind Aussetzer, aber das erste Stück "St.Stephen" versöhnt.
I question something about the sound. Either the quality of the remastering or the quality of the cut or the pressing? The midrange is muffled, the low end is muddy, and the sizzle has been adios'd throughout much of this record. We're not talking about analog warmth (which I can imagine someone responding with. "It's not digital bro." : ). I know all about that. I'm a tone chaser. A tube swapper. I just cannot imagine that this is the sound intended, or the sound of either the original master. So I went on youtube and listened to some substandard streaming mp3's of this record, and it makes me a little sick even typing this, but they sounded better. The vocals didn't sound so muffled and buried. And the punch and dynamic range seemed right. The low end was tighter. Just to make sure something wasn't wrong with my gear or my ears I put on some other records. Nope. Everything else sounded better and more dynamic.
Who approved these? Someone random from Rhino who has no association with the Dead? Someone had to right? Did a mastering engineer compress or limit the life out these? Did they make a test pressing and listen carefully/thoughtfully? Doesn't seem like it. I don't love this record. And I sure did want to.
I love this album but it sounds like It was recorded underwater. I have some recent vinyl copies of American Beauty and Workingman's Dead that sound crystal clear but this just sounds flat. I've heard some Warner Brothers albums don't have the best quality. Other than that, It's alright!
