Lon when I was in the USN I was stationed in San Francisco during it's glory years. The Greatfull Dead was the house band at the Carousel Lounge which was at the end of Market St. The Carousel was a biker bar and you often saw Hell's Angels there. I got to see a lot of bands from that era, Linda Ronstadt, Jimmi Hendrix, Jefferson Airplane, Chambers Brothers, Alvin Lee, Quicksilver Messenger Service, Mamas and Papas, REO Speedwagon, Eric Burdon, Donovan, Richie Havens, I saw George Harrison play acoustic solo in Golden gate park for free and no one mugged him. The Dead would play live concerts and people would record the concert some using pretty sophisticated gear and the Dead didn't care. Seems like I remember the Dead using McIntosh stereo amps, big ones, for their PA system.

Yes, they did use McIntosh amps, and continued to do so through the seventies (though they were solid state then).

I have read a lot about the San Francisco scene and really have studied the music.  I lived in San Francisco for half a year, in 1978.  It was NOT the same city then.  By any means!

Right now:


Pure Jerry No. 8.  Released at the same time as the Carousel show.

When I would see the Dead, they'd use big stacks of McIntosh MC-60's driving their pa. Perhaps in the 70's they went to SS...

Wow, we all listen to different stuff! Which is great!

I'm at my parents' in Ohio so not listening much at all, but do have this set in the changer, I gave it to my dad for Xmas as I really like it and he's a big Beethoven nut.

The nine symphonies transcribed for solo piano:
