wow thinking about that Portland set for $49... that's pretty damn tempting.  heard the show quite a few times but this looks to be one of those special releases...  how is quality of press?

I'm sure it's awesome but I thought I read a review that one disc's side has no vocals on it.
So I guess if that will drive you nuts. At $49.99, one of 12 sides missing vocals, still good bang for your buck on an amazing era in Dead history.

I made a couple of purchases this week that came in today.
Grabbed Billy Breathes, LCD Sound of Silver and decided to splurge on a vacuum tube preamp for my setup. Pretty psyched to give it a whirl this weekend.

Don't get too excited as I am just testing the waters with this cheap guy.

I figured I'd try one in the $50 range and then upgrade from there.
So far, it sounds pretty good.

I switched from a  tube pre to a solid state but I love tube stages.  They're great.  I have a grounding issue in my house and couldn't get the tube pre to be quiet, but they're the way to go for sure.

I've bought 3 $$$$ boxsets this year, I should really pass on this, but it's so epic that I don't think I can...

you cannot pass this up.  especially since they are releasing the whole run and these won't last forever.

I read like 20 good reviews of the Baby Face Willette "Face to Face" Blue Note Tone Poet reissue so I popped on it from Amazon... great reissue, classic Grant Green LP.
