First time commenting here.

Professor, thank you SOOOO much for your weekly dose of Dead. I don't miss a podcast.

This Christmas offering is a remarkable example of the depth to which Garcia and the Dead were influenced by Old-Time Country, Classic Country, Bluegrass, and Blues. If they were any remaining doubts as to the authenticity of the American roots music they played, this podcast should lay that all to rest. This is the real deal.

What a treasure!

Once again, I'm absolutely blown away by the acoustic stuff. I simply cannot get enough of it!

In the 1970 show, the arrangements for Deep Elem and Big Railroad Blues were quite unique, not to mention fabulous. And, the God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen just superb.

Happy belated holidays 2007, Professor!
