Product Description:

The Grateful Dead: Jerry Garcia, Mickey Hart, Bill Kreutzmann, Phil Lesh, Brent Mydland, Bob Weir.
Recorded live at The Knickerbocker Arena, Albany, New York on March 24-26, 1990.
All tracks have been digitally mastered using HDCD technology.
The Grateful Dead's neverending tour visited countless arenas in the band's 30 years--most of them faceless, sterile hockey rinks that seemed to have all been cut from the same drab cloth. Albany, New York's Knickerbocker Arena was among the sunny exceptions. The band loved the building's warm acoustics and seemed to elevate its effort there. The Deadheads cozied up to the hall's relative intimacy and to the band's heightened creativity within it; and while many towns reacted with hostility to the caravan of travelers that accompanied the band, Albany played a warm and gracious host. Compiled from The Dead's inaugural stand there in March 1990, DOZIN' AT THE KNICK is a detailed document of the band at a late creative peak, having oodles of fun.
The set may be most memorable for featuring many songs The Dead had long performed live, but have never released on an album. For the uninitiated, Bob Weir's zesty take on Bob Dylan's "When I Paint My Masterpiece" and the band's Hendrixian rampage through "All Along The Watchtower" may be forceful surprises. Songs by Dead keyboardist Brent Mydland, who died months later, are peppered throughout; "Blow Away," complete with an improvised rap reminiscent of Ron "Pigpen" McKernan, appears as his finest moment. If primal psychedelic Dead is what you seek, go directly to the middle disc's seamless triumvirate of "Playing In The Band," "Uncle John's Band" and the "Terrapin Station" suite, along with the smoldering jam that follows. Garcia and his mates invest each of these warhorses with grace and power, feeding off the moment's magical impulses--reasserting the magical formula of good Grateful Dead concerts all over again.
