Heard a great audience recording from a Buffalo show in '79, I think. There aren't too many of them in the GD world pre-mid-80's, but a solid AUD is the way to go for me. It's like a party, yo.
just a foil for me today, thanks

I'm too young to have seen the actual Grateful Dead, I'm only 20, but I have seen Dark Star 5 or 6 times, Furthur 3 times, Mickey Hart Band 2 times, and I know I'm missing a couple others...

I'm in the minority on Donna I guess, or @ least the less vocal re:her. There are several reasons why I like her. I don't believe she's off key. What may make her off putting is her sound. But off key? I don't believe she is. And that period of Dead is my favorite overall. And lastly, I trust Jerry & Bob & Phil. They put her up there, they liked her & tho't she added rather than detracted. So I'll side w/the boys in the band & appreciate the whole sound for its brilliance. And that includes Donna.

I don't dislike Donna, but, I typically skip the tracks she sings. Sometimes. However, some of her singing on Shakedown Street, the studio version, I actually will listen.

I guess she's what you'd expect from that band- they weren't great vocalists by any stretch (I cannot listen to Brent at all). The female vibe helped on the grander mid-70s stuff, too. On the flip- she screams like she's being murdered and usually sounds like she's playing catch up on the harmonies.

Somebody should make a collage of her bleating during Playin' in the Band. It would be as long as a typical 1st set.
