This looks beautiful. Weather Report Suite was always so good and Bob’s voice was always so strong in this song. Lots of upbeat songs in the first half and a Scarlet-Roses combo? That is something I forgot all about them ever even doing. Bottom line, I love the Dead and this set looks like money. Gotta get back to work but I’m probably going to purchase this one. Cheers!
