This four-tape limited edition set is the Deadhead Encyclopedia Britannica--but a lot more fun--especially useful during those long stretches between Furthur Festivals. It includes the 1976 Grateful Dead Movie; Downhill from Here, a terrific live concert tape culled from two 1989 shows at Alpine Valley, Wisconsin; Ticket to New Year's, recorded New Year's Eve 1987 at the Oakland Coliseum; and Dead Ahead, a 1981 pay-per-view special featuring performances at Radio City Music Hall and hosted by Al Franken and Tom Davis. (Each tape is also available individually.) All four present terrific concert sequences and some candid backstage interviews. The Grateful Dead Movie shows its age a bit in its less-than-ideal sound and visual quality, but the trippy animation sequences are still a lot of fun. The other three show a wide range of great Dead performances, both acoustic and electric, and with all the spontaneity and looseness Deadheads adore. Anyone wanting to embark on that long, strange trip need look no further than this collection. --Anne Hurley
