Ace review

Ace is an outstanding album with seven of the eight songs staples of the Grateful Dead's repertoire, with seven of the eight songs staples of the Grateful Dead's repertoire.  .  This album is hard to come by. However, five of the eight songs from Ace are on the highly rated Bob Weir compilation Weir Here.

Ace was reissued Jan. 2005. It is really a Grateful Dead album, but they are all Bobby songs. This is an excellent release, with seven of the eight songs staples of the Grateful Dead's repertoire.  However, a better choice may be Weir's Anthology, Weir Here, as the last five songs from this album on it, as well as so much more essential music. Unless, you plan to collect all or most of Weir's other studio releases.
