Hi Sakalli. Minor problem with CD3 on this one. The two vreisons of Space are in the wrong positions. By switching track 1 for track 7, you can hear how nicely it now segues into The Wheel. Easily fixed by just changing the track numbers, though. Awesome stuff. I saw The Dead numerous times in ’89/‘90 in California. Good times. Thanks so much for bringing back all those memories with these fantastic posts. Cheers!
