I watched Long Strange Trip and it got me back into the Dead. Most of my knowledge ends after '77 so I had never heard Althea before and wow I was missing out. I was exploring the '72 shows (a big thank you to the poster who was doing deep dives into that year) and the Veneta,Oregon is amazing. I've been using headyversion.com a lot to find great versions of my favourite songs then listening to the full shows that they come from. But I'm sometimes finding it hard to listen to an entire show mostly because of how long they are and half the setlist being songs I'm not crazy for. I prefer their upbeat and engaging songs to the slow and meandering ones. Don't think this is me crapping on the band though, I'm still enjoying this long, strange trip!

Should look for the highlight albums? Is that what the Road Trips series is?

My Dead fandom sounds a lot like yours. What I basically ended up doing is if found a song I liked from an album or a set, I'd look at headyversion to see what people tended to think were good versions, check 'em out, and then whatever one I liked best I'd add to a playlist. Full set lists are still going to have songs you aren't into almost every time.

Basically for me I needed to weed out anything where Donna's vocals were high in the mix.
