This is probably not the best place to start your collection of Grateful Dead live albums. I suggest Europe 72 volume 1 and volume 2 which is the route I’ve taken to appreciating their music and approach to live concerts. The original Europe 72 album is currently topping my poll to find the best live album by the Dead and it’s followed by Live/Dead from 1969.
