Has anyone seen the Shortlists site?

http://saveyourface.posthaven.com/dark- ... mega-mix-1

This is "Dark Starlets: A Europe 72 Single-Song Mega Mix"

Haven't listened yet, but this should be good.
This mix is comprised of 21 musical segments drawn from all the “Dark Stars” performed during the Europe ’72 tour. They are arranged into two 64-minute sequences, each of which begins with the song’s intro, and each of which contains a verse. It’s all “forward moving” improvisation, whether on the “Dark Star” theme or farther afield. There’s no “space,” though the segments wind up and wind down from spacey zones, such that The Dead’s development of each musical angle here is respected, and the result feels more or less like a single performance, with ebbs and flows. If you’ve ever imagined a one-hour or two-hour “Dark Star” that never completely spaces out and keeps finding new melodic avenues, this is for you.
Get the feelin' I'm gonna find out real soon...

That's the beauty of Dark Star. It's forever. It always connects, never ends and is ever evolving. Put together a playlist of any random Dark Stars and it will become one.

Sounds neat connecting em in a way like this though, I'm giving it a download right now though I'm already a good hour maybe two or more into Dark Stars for today I'll dive into this sometime soon.

Lovely. Real short but pretty cool. Wonderful transitions.

Listening to the 2-26-18 Dark Star this morning.

TURN UP OTEIL! I really want to hear him take DS down his path a little more. This one in Ft Lauderdale covers some nice, new territory, though.
Listen to the river sing sweet songs, to rock my soul.

The spirit of the Dark Star must have been in hibernation yesterday
Today it re-awakens shining its light on mankind ridding our world of sickness and troubles

A quick joyful Dark Star at nights end to concoct some heavenly dream chemistry to fill the empty canvas of limitless possibility

Trey's Dark Stars are kinda funny. He seems more to play with sounds than to explore them and can kinda feel like they rotate round and round in a ball but the band completely drives him off on a fun path here.
