Steppin Out With The Grateful Dead England 72 is a live album compiled from the concert performance in England by the Grateful Dead in April & May 1972.
Europe 72 was an extremely successful live album for the Grateful Dead but it excluded many of the classic songs. While these have been picked up on Europe 72 volume 2, the albums lack a concert feel.d

What Other People Say
On Amazon there are complaints that this is a copy protected CD which means you can’t convert it to an mp3. I find it very frustrating when this happens because I listen to just about all albums from my iPod rather than from a CD player.
You may therefore be better to buy the mp3 version. You’ll notice that there aren’t any complaints about the music.
