Good to hear from you, Embo.

John has certainly brought a lot of new people to the family, as well as doing a fantastic job in the band. Bob and Bill have both stated that they want the music to continue long after they are gone. Hopefully, John, Oteil and Jeff will be the first links in the chain. They're more than capable.

The Grateful Dead have always been about the live experience. For various reasons, they had a lot of difficulty with studio work. Of course, their studio albums contained a lot of good music, but it was never the same as when they played live.

For those who aren't aware, The Dead made a soundboard recording of nearly every show. In 1991 they started releasing them as albums. There are a hundred or more so far. So counting studio albums, live albums, video and digital downloads there are around 140 Grateful Dead albums out there.

Here is a link to the band's myspace album page. Happy listening.
