Grateful Dead: A Complete Road Trip

They keep coming at a consistent pace. Who says it is not a race? Anyway, this is twice that they (whoever they are) have released a Jerry Garcia Band CD release and a Road Trips at the same time. The significance is that they released a Road Trips of a whole Dead show (the 1968 RDTrips was complete as well). I love it, I love it, I love it. Do you think they are listening to us and doing complete shows? Here is what they say about it on their web page:

"The latest installment in our Road Trips series, now entering its third big year (and ninth release overall) is bound to become a favorite. Road Trips Vol. 3, No. 1 is the complete show from December 28, 1979, part of the sparkling run that has already given us the excellent Dick’s Picks: Vol. 5 (from 12/26/79). You’ll recall that these year-end concerts, held at the Oakland Auditorium because Winterland had closed down for good the previous New Year’s Eve, were the first holiday shows featuring new keyboardist Brent Mydland, who joined the band in April 1979."
