One From the Vault review

One From the Vault wasn’t the Grateful Dead's first live CD, but it was their first that was a complete concert. It was recorded during the bands semi-retirement. It was more of a retirement from touring, as they were writing, recording, and even performed live four times in 1975.

Much of the music from One From the Vault would appear on their CD Blues For Allah.  Three songs from this show seldom appeared live: "King Solomon's Marbles," "Sage and Spirit", and "Blues For Allah." Of the three songs, "King Solomon’s Marbles" holds my interest the most.

They also performed the rest of the songs from the Blues For Allah CD, and most went on to be crowd favorites through the next 20 years of their career. These hits include: “Help On The Way,” “Slipknot,” “Franklin's Tower,” “The Music Never Stopped,” and “Crazy Fingers.”  It is amazing how well they executed their new material, as the Grateful Dead typically needed time to develop their songs.  Noteworthy is the "Eyes of the World" that is performed perfectly.  The only part of the disc that isn’t superb, IMO, is "Blues For Allah." However, the band received a great reception from the crowd afterwards so perhaps I missed something, or maybe you had to be there.

One From the Vault is a solid concert release with great sound that is substantial throughout. by Barry Small ©
