Maybe I'm just lame, but I sure can't find a torrent download link anywhere. Maybe I need a Lossless Legs account to get it,but "User signups are suspended for awhile". I did find the VBR MP3's at Amazon, but I doubt they're as good as the flac16 files.

Yeah I'm working on it. I got these shows a long time ago before I knew about lossless or head-fi.

Here are all three nights. 2/11, 2/13, and 2/14. If you just want the 2/11 show uncheck the files from the other two nights.

Not to be a broken record, but the sound on 2/13/70 and 2/14/70 is amaaaazing, especially for the time period.

For those of you who want fantastic GD sound quality and can afford to do so, the other thing you should immediately do is buy the Winterland 73 Box Set. Those three Nov 73 shows have always been among my very favorites - 11-11-73 especially. And the sound quality of that release is spectacular. Hard to believe it was not purposefully done as a record release when you listen to it. The versions we all had before the official release were good - but not nearly as good as the Box Set.

I have a CD titled "Dead Set", containing a live recording from 1981. Don't have the CD cover handy, so I don't know the exact date. Very good quality on the ALAC import I'm listening to now. Here are the tracks:

Samson & Delilah - 5:05
Friend Of The Devil - 7:27
New Minglewood Blues - 4:41
Deal - 4:42
Candyman -7:15
Little Red Rooster - 4:30
Loser- 5:53
Passenger - 3:21
Feel Like A Stranger - 5:40
Franklin's Tower - 5:28
Rhythm Devils - 2:25
Fire On The Mountain - 6:43
Greatest Story Ever Told - 3:20
Brokedown Palace - 5:31

I agree the sound quality on Dead Set is very good. The remastered and expanded version contains a whole second disc of really great stuff from the same run of shows.

Other official/commercial releases that sound especially good are "Go To Nassau", "Truckin' to Buffalo", and "Nightfall of Diamonds". All fantastic playing and sound, although they are all the 1980's line-up (which I love, but is a little different from the 70's sound, as pointed out.

I second this recommendation and would also suggest the Fillmore West 1969 Complete Recordings if funds permit. It's an 11 disc box set limited to 10,000 copies. Sound quality is phenomenal.

That full 11 CD 1969 Box Set sells for $500-1000 on EBay - it's OOP. But the 3CD condensed version can easily be had for less than $20 since it's still available, and it's indeed great sounding.

Cool. I ordered both the Closing of Winterland and the condensed 1969 at Filmore West from Amazon. Looking forward to them.

Listening to 4 28 1974 right now in flac24, definitely the best soundboard tape I have heard yet SQ wise, thanks again for the links.

Another superexcellent official release is 'Hundred Year Hall'.

Seriously. Mindblowing. With anything from Europe '72 you pretty much can't go wrong.

A fun one, good ole' One from the Vault. It's gotten a lot of people hooked over the years, or at least intrigued.
