HoleWorld - Guide to the Virtual Underground

What's new on the Crust? - We are having a hard time keeping up with remnAnt release, which are up to Dick's Picks 11 among others. Down here in the Hole, we'd like to see more Garcia Band (how bout some 70's stuff?) sent our way.

RemnAnts Released - The musical secretions since Jerry's death have proved themselves worthy. Dozing at the Knick may be the best-sounding multi-track live recording EVER, featuring the Dead in the midst of their awesome Spring '90 tour. (The prior release in this vault series was the Hundred Year Hall.)
Also new are Shady Grove, a Garcia/Grisman collaboration, and That High Lonesome Sound, an alternate configuration of Old And In The Way. The Grateful PirAnts are beaming about these acoustic flavors and listen in awe to Vassar Clemens, but still await the O&ITW version with John Hartford.  Meanwhile, honorary pirAnt Dick has been releasing a series of live recordings from Dead past. His picks were originally on two-track analog tape, are now CDs, and sound amazing:
Grateful Dead Tapes Grateful Dead Fans Grateful Dead Albums Recordings by the Grateful Dead Grateful Dead Tour 
Terrapin Station (Limited Edition) - 3 discs. Complete show from Spring '90 tour. Standard setlist with a great centerpiece Terrapin and mock turtle jam, Revolution encore. Sounds extraordinary, especially for Mickey and Bill fans. Anyone think the artwork is colored strangely?

How Sweet It Is - 1 disc. Live Jerry Garcia Band from the Warfield, circa 1990. "Tough Mama" is the runaway favorite. Also includes nice versions of "Gomorrah" and "Someday Baby." We look forward to older JGB.

Dozin' at the Knick- 3 discs, first set highlights, a complete second set plus a partial second set from 3-show run in Albany, NY. The sound quality is insurpassable and the Playin' > UJB > Terrapin appeases the pirAnts to no end.
