4391/18K arrived. Can't wait to dig in! Just another stellar '76 Good Old Grateful Dead show.
To revisit again and again and again and again and always find something new and wonderful to smile about and enjoy every time.

For a total Dead neophyte what is a good place to start digging in? I'm always told the obvious ones, American Beauty or Workingman's, but what's a little off the beaten path that you'd recommend?

Sure. Tough question the deeper you go down the GoGD rabbit hole.....
Off the beaten path that are widely avail and relatively inexpensive:
Europe '72
From the Mars Hotel (studio '74)
Reckoning (live acoustic 1980)
The Grateful Dead Movie OST Box Set (closing of Winterland Oct. '74, 4 CD comp of 5 night run)
Jerry Garcia-Garcia '72 & Reflections '76

Ask another fan and you'll get a completely different answer. I'm not gonna recommend Dave's Pick 1 Mosque '77 cuz it routinely goes for $500 on ebay now. Enjoy. The older i get, the more this music seems to "click." It's inevitable.

You bet. If you are wanting the original LPs, all are available in the used bins with an extra bit of hunting and deadication! If you find clean 'n green label WB pressings....Grab 'em.

Vol. 29 is gonna be 02-26-77. A masterfully played, well rehearsed & high energy show back to front. The first show of 1977 just off the Terrapin Station recording sessions.

Digging into Europe '72 and liking it a lot...obviously not a one and done kind of listen so need to delve in further.

20K copies SOLD OUT in 4-6 hours. Looking forward to mine arriving prolly Fri/Sat next week.
A stunning and energetic opening salvo of a show for the much hailed GoGD year of 1977.

#11251/20K in the CDP this morning with coffee. A sublime & singular "Playin'>The Wheel>Playin'" to end Set 1. Puts me in a very good mood. :)

^Thats pretty amazing that Warner Music has blocked a live video of the Dead based on propritary grounds - seeing how the Grateful Dead own all of their music. They have owned their music from very early in their career because they had a very savvy lawyer who told them that the c ost would be well worth it in the long run.
Was the clip a song that they were covering?
The Dead use different rhythm and structure for a lot of their covers so i don't understand how an algorithm could even alert WMG of a cover song.
Maybe the remaining members of the Dead sold their music back to WMG recently, but that would seem odd.
