Arguably the "Mother" of all jam bands-the Grateful Dead were best appreciated in a live setting.Their studio albums rarely,if ever,captured their magical live chemistry.The very strength of the band was that they could and did improvise extensively.In fact,they never played the same song in quite the same way or played the same set list twice-quite a feat for a 30 plus year career! I saw them less than 10 times before Garcia passed away,and wish I had not caugt on so late.I also saw them once with Warren Haynes of Gov't Mule & Allman Bros fame,and they were still ROCKIN.Of course,they sound totally different with another lead guitar where Jerry was,but they were still worth seeing.In fact,both Phil Lesh and Mickey Hart did some vocals-and "Drumz" was still one of my favorite parts of the show.

I've always preferred their shorter tracks, especially those on albums like American Beauty. I think they produced relatively little of merit since c. 1974, virtually everything I liked from them dates from before that. However, their jams did influence every subsequent jam band. Personal favorites include:" Rosemary," "Ripple," "Box of Rain," St. Stephen," "The Golden Road," "Bertha," U.S. Blues," etc. They are an exception to my usual rule about the worth of a band in that their best known and overplayed tunes tend to be the best ones.
