Well, I'm kind of an idiot. I ordered the BluRay pack thinking it was FIVE shows, not three. Oh well. Sometimes I wonder what happened to all those brain cells. Then I remember. 8-)
Yeah, perspective is different when you are at a show, or, always actually. I don't know. I really felt they were pretty tight other than a few slip ups here and there. For me it's always different when I listen to it later as well. I just downloaded the shows in FLAC from the FM broadcast (PM me if you want me to put them on dropbox for you). I remember listening to an interview of Jerry many many years ago and he said something similar; He said that he'd be playing a show and think that it's a mess, they are not clicking and nothing is sounding right to him, then later he would listen to the show and it would be magic! I don't know. I do know that my head was in a REALLY REALLY REALLY good place all weekend
I've been pretty bummed out the last few days. Almost like Jerry died again. Just kind of in a funk. Went to see Stu Allen and The Mars Hotel play last night in Berkeley and that helped
I agree that the blu rays are overpriced, but hell. I was there. AND it was my daughter's first show! She is 15 and her name is Stella Blue. They played it for her on the 4th!! Very nice
I agree though that if money is limited (and when is it not) I'd get the May '77 box and The Other Ones first. I really love those disks! Also Spring 90 is EXCELLENT!! I listen to them a lot. And we get all those Dylan tunes that they left out of this run.
Might have to think about going to Dark Star Orchestra's 'Jam in the Sand' next year just to get my fix
