CD116 - Arista 1981
Disc 2 Ė BONUS
A wonderful live acoustic record culled from the Dead's 15th anniversary concerts at the Warfield Theater and Radio City Music Hall. (You can tell which songs were recorded where by listening to how noisy the crowd is ó the New York cuts have more whistling, clapping and a higher noise floor in general.) Originally a double-album, it's now a single CD (with "Oh, Babe It Ain't No Lie" dropped from the original lineup so it could fit on one disc). It mixes traditional folk and country tunes such as "Deep Elem Blues," "The Race Is On," "Rosalie McFall" and "Been All Around This World," with cleverly acousticized Dead tunes including "China Doll," "To Lay Me Down," "Bird Song," "Cassidy" and "Ripple." A personal favorite; great on Sunday mornings!
