Apparently their live shows are more representative of the band than any of their albums are, but they've got a billion billion shows and I don't know which ones are must hear, absolutely essential, can't go wrong, start with this like the Pumpkins' GM Place or Fox Theatre or Unicorn shows

Yeah this felt like a good foray. I liked the more upbeat instrumental parts than the slower and low key parts.

I recommend anything from 1970 or 1971. The early 90s before Jerry died are amazing too. There's some starters for you.
