All are a ten.

Every version of Money Money is now officially released.

Life is beautiful.


In all seriousness, 5/19/74 is the fucking shit.... So I'd start there but I'd get the whole thing.

Agreed, they're all really good.

Vancouver '73 So much good stuff in the 1st set, the Truckin' thru Sugar Mag segment is also bananas
Portland '74 WRS > Wharf Rat might be my favourite thing on the box, very early Peggy-O too
Portland '73 Dark Star > Eyes
Seattle '74 47 minute Playin' = longest GD jam
Seattle '73 Huge Other One
Vancouver '74 had never heard this show, the Nobody's Fault But Mine is cool

They did a really good job with the comp, so you might start there.

But, I don't think our fans do happily lap it up, I think they go online and talk about how it was a bad show.

Thanks!
Id like to get the LP set, but was just curious how the full shows stacked up.
Thanks for the input.

It's going to take me a while to dig through all these. So much goodness here.

The Jam out of Nobody's Fault But Mine and into NFA from 5/19 has some really cool almost-Phish like loose jamming

Also, I broke down and ordered the LP box which I was hesitant to do because they don't need to release full shows as LP sets but it's obviously so good that I need to own it.

I will be ordering that on my birthday because I slacked on it so far.

Really? I thought Dark Star SF 11/11/73 clocked in at > 50 min, and DS 5/11/72 was close to that also

or I could have my GD facts wrong

on Vancouver 73 now and loving it

Just gave that a spin. I've had Seamons Matrix for a while and it's great. Not sure how the two sources compare. But yes Truckin' through Sugar Mag! It's labeled like this on my old copy:

d4t01 - He's Gone ->
d4t02 - Truckin' ->
d4t03 - Nobody's Fault But Mine Jam ->
d4t04 - Phil Zone ->
d4t05 - Jam ->
d4t06 - The Other One ->
d4t07 - Space ->
d4t08 - The Other One ->
d4t09 - Wharf Rat ->
d4t10 - Sugar Magnolia

I know this isn't the box, but you guys should all check out today's anniversary show from 74.

Jerry and Billy come in during Seastones and segue into a long, groovy, different Eyes of the World. Worth hearing.

Yeah that show is pretty ripe.
The events in our lives happen in a sequence in time, but in their significance to ourselves they find their own order; the continuous thread of revelation.
