Just kidding—you'll never have enough jams! But if you think you're not that into guitars, or just getting into the Dead, this 45-minute mix is a beauitful place to start. Stitching together live sets spanning 1969 to 1977, it was originally compiled by Gary Johnson for The FADER's 2007 Jerry Garcia Icon Issue.
