Blair Jackson's review: ***

A fun and fast-paced glimpse of what the Dead were like in their ballroom days. The most successful cuts are the extended ones "Viola Lee Blues," "Morning Dew" and "Good Morning Little Schoolgirl." "The Golden Road (to Unlimited Devotion)" almost sounds like a mainstream rock track, circa '67, and though Garcia didn't like "Cream Puff War," I do. "Beat It on Down the Line" and "Sitting on Top of the World" are manic but still effective. "Cold Rain and Snow" is also faster than the group played it in later years.
