Please try again later. Verified Purchase. My father bought me this album the year jt was released in I was 11 years old. He bought it for me in a record store in Cape May NJ. It was my very first Dead album. At the time I was into classic rock because my parents played it and I come from a musical household.
I was primarily listening to stuff like greenday, no doubt, , stuff like that. When I first sat down and put this album on in my room, it was life changing. I had never heard anything like it. The live style, the energy, the lyrics, it all had a very mystical quality to me. It was strange and unusual to my young ears, but I could not stop listening to it.
I was hooked right then and there. I would be a dead head from then on ammasing a collection of studio albums and live albums and bootlegs. I regretted not being able to see the band being to young.
But evebtually got to experience my own tours w Dead and Co and other great jam bands But that is a topic for another discussion. This album is phenominal. I am certainly biased because I have a special place for this album in my heart. But the energy is intense and there are some amazing fast paced songs and a super heady dark star. I love the classics duprees diamond store blues and good morning little school girl etc.
The hey jude set ending of set 1 gives me the chills every time. While most would say its not as good as the origional, if let the discs play straight through the energy of that is just amazing. The whole disc is amazing and is a must have for any serious or casual collector. Enjoy it! By Justaguy on June 6, Images in this review. Okay, So I'm old and my favorite time period for the guys is the 60's and 70's. This was and everyone's voice was still in its prime. But this is primo late 60's stuff.
I didn't get a chance to see them until and the last time sorry to admit it was and they've always been great in their various incarnations. Just something about when they were fresher, again IMHO.
This is the original Dead. I have basically everything they have released representing these 2 decades and selectively from then on I'm not made out of money. Dick's Picks etc. So nothing but production quality separates the recordings for me, gotta get them all. The beauty in the Fillmore East release lies in the monumental journeys they embark upon in each of their two mini-sets.
Right from the start the band channeled their nervous energy straight into a scorching rendition of Good Morning Little Schoolgirl that miraculously only managed to hint at the fireworks still to come. A complete That's It for the Other One dripped with acid-laced intensity, which no doubt fanned the smoldering embers of the audiences' collective psyche. During Turn on Your Lovelight , guitarist Jerry Garcia circumnavigated the globe with a stinging lead that floated effortlessly above the thundering bass of Phil Lesh and the driving, percussive rhythms of Bill Kreutzmann and Mickey Hart.
By the time the band began their opening set for the late show, they had somewhat calmed their nerves. Mountains of the Moon is perhaps the best version of this song that the Grateful Dead ever performed. Cryptical Envelopment. Jerry Garcia. The Other One. Doin' That Rag. I'm a King Bee. Turn on Your Love Light. Hey Jude. Track Listing - Disc 2. Dupree's Diamond Blues. Mountains of the Moon. Dark Star. The Eleven. Caution Do Not Stop on Tracks. Grateful Dead. We Bid You Goodnight.
