Exclusive discount for Prime members. Sample this album Artist (Sample). I love the mix of songs, the sounds they were using at this time, and the vocal mix. I've got lots of Dick's Picks, and From the Vault releases, and lots of DVDs, but if I could only have ONE LIVE GD album this is the one I would have.

I am not a jam band person by nature. I like country, folk, bluegrass, blues and a bit of jazz. It might not be obvious, and it wasn't to me, but the Grateful Dead take on those forms in their unique electric way. This is 1990 Grateful Dead. A full force machine where all played and on the surface the instrumentation maybe called "noisy" but closer listens will reveal the highly interweaving syncopation of Kreutzmann and Hart laying down a sound that allows some great improvisations and performances. Its not the sound of the 70's, but it is a near perfect sound of the 1990 Grateful Dead and they were in their own right a damn good band.
A live album by a living band is a tricky thing; you want the buyers to feel they are getting a concert experience (which isn't really possible), but without any mistakes. So moments perceived by the audience as outstanding often don't get issued: the drummer hears a transition fumble, the singer wishes he'd hit that note, the keyboardist mistook a verse. Meanwhile, the label sees live albums as little more than a cash-grab, so any songs already issued on previous live albums are seen as contrary to desired sales. Who's really going to buy the same songs again?These perspectives (and more) go into every live release, but lucky for us it can still result in s solidly good album. Half the songs here had not seen previous live release, but more importantly the band was in strong form, so it didn't really matter what the songs were. Being digitally recorded, they didn't have to deal with tape running out mid-jam (as had happened back in 1980 when making the DEAD SET album).WITHOUT A NET more-or-less follows their actual concert format, minus the drums and space that many regarded as a sort of mid-set break anyway. The result showcases their strengths in both songs and jamming -- a balance seemingly missed by the jam bands that followed. If you saw the band on this tour, this is what they sounded like -- and you went home happy afterward.P.S. SO GLAD YOU MADE IT is a later compilation from the Spring 1990 tour, effectively making a four-CD live release of largely the same era.
This album is a little noisy. Do not get it unless you already have Dead Set-which is much better.
