Grateful Dead : Road Trips Vol. 4 - From Egypt With Love!!! " : October 17, 21 & 22, 1978 (10/17/1978 - 10/21/1978 - 10/22/1978) - Winterland Arena - San Francisco, California (CA) : " Complete! 3 CD Set with Bonus Disc CD!: 2008 (1978/2008) Grateful Dead Productions, Inc. / Rhino (GDP / Rhino) : Brand New / Factory Sealed! Twenty-Three (23) Previously-Unissued Grateful Dead' Live' Tracks! From the Egypt 1978 Shows!! - at the Winterland Arena in San Francisco, CA!! On 10/17/78 - 10/21/78 & 10/22/78!!! Billed at the time & commonly referred to as the " From Egypt with Love " Shows - this release captures the Band during a 5-night " Homecoming " from the Amazing! Experience of playing 3-nights in front of the Pyramids & Sphinx at the Gizah Sound & Light Theater in Cairo, Egypt!!! This was a fine chance & occasion for the band members to collectively spread the magic that they experienced on that Monumental Journey. As it also stands, this would be one of the final runs / stands of the Grateful Dead playing the Fan (& Band) favorite Winterland Arena on their Bay Area home-turf. - with Very-Rare' Bonus Disc CD' included! - and is one of the Very-Finest!
There is clearly Love in the Air! , and the synergy between the Fans & the Band is captured beautifully in this audio-mix. From a personal standpoint, this is one (if not' the') Road Trips I was most excited to receive when I heard it would be released way-back in 2008. Over the years, I'm just one of the numerous!Numbers of loyal Dead Fans that have given the analog tapes from this run a serious' workout'. The news that significant highlights from this run would be available in a digitally-remastered / pro-release format was a true cause for celebration!! Clearly one of the Finest'78 runs of Shows delivered by the Band, as there are abundant Musical Treasures! Not only beautiful & well-played tunes from this " Era " like Passenger, Stagger Lee, and Miracle -- but also historic " Special-Treat " versions the likes of Scarlet > Fire - and the blistering-hot I've Got My Mojo Workin' > Other One! It should be proudly-noted that Garcia puts a muscle-style workout on his MXR Distortion + pedal during the Other One ascension, that might even make Jimmy Page or Tony Iommi raise an eyebrow.
And one of the 1st glimpses of what would become an early taste of hot & heavy good-nights in The 80's! When Jerry would eventually convert to primarily Boss distortion equipment OD-1 / HM-2 - etc.
There are many moments on this release that border/equal music perfection - at least to my humble Grateful Dead ears. This is without question a Must-Hear & Must-Have, in my opinion. And as far as the " Bonus Disc "... The He's Gone will just make your spine tingle, and Had the World to Give?
Well, here indeed is my own super-short personal story on this-one : I was listening to this song on my 10/17/78 analog tape (through head-phones) at just before midnight on 8/8/95. After the tune, I hung'em up, turned off the tape-deck and went to bed. The next morning she called me letting me know that Jerry had passed. So, even though it can sometimes be a bit tough to hear for me... I'm all the more grateful to own this legendary live-track in pristine A + quality.It's on the Bonus Disc, and is a must hear & must have, no question - as is this entire Road Trips set. A Very-Very Special'78 Grateful Dead release!!!
