We're happy to present a clip from "Shakedown Street" at Giants Stadium, 7/9/89. It's one of the performances featured on the 95-minute DVD inside the new Grateful Dead Scrapbook: Deluxe Edition. The DVD also includes a rare video from 1968, plus more live footage of the band between 1972 and 1989.
The albums are individually numbered and include never-before-published photos, interactive features like backstage passes and fold-out posters, plus a CD with never-before-heard interviews!
This exclusive edition is only available at Dead.net.
Look at the big shit eating grin on his face!!! And Bobby is singing the wrong line thruout the whole end of the verse!! Jerry And Brent Are Singing "Maybe The Dark Is From Your Eyes" And Bobby's Singing "Don't Tell Me This Town Ain't Got No Heart"! I call this tour "The Summer They Did No Wrong" even the songs you were sick to death of were good !!! They need to put more of these shows out. Check Out My Orignal Music at myspace.com/salaversano
I love 1989...
What a tease. I never got to see Brent. My first show was in '90 after he died.
folks on this site have been begging for some decent video releases for more than 2 years now and this is the answer. Do us a favour. OK, the Egypt material was nice, but now we are being asked to pay out a lot of money for a gimmicky overpriced product in order to get a a bonus video with a few clips from here and there. Simply shameful. I hope nobody buys it.
I think Jerry is grinning at Bobby's idiotic shorts and shirt.
"Great spirits have always found violent opposition from mediocrities. The latter cannot understand it when a man does not thoughtlessly submit to hereditary prejudices but honestly and courageously uses his intelligence."
This is a gimmic of a product aimed at those few individuals that just have to buy everything that comes out. A very few little gems packaged in a whole lot of overpriced gift wrap. All of the audio material is available in downloadable soundboard recordings. The only time I would ever buy a DVD or video is if it was a complete show. The use of this product would be very limited and it would just sit on the shelf gathering dust in my cave. In my humble opinion it is not worth even close to $75. more like $25 if you threw in free shipping. This is the type of marketing mistake that the execs at Rhino keep making. They think that the Grateful Dead is like every other nostalgia band from the sixties and seventies, that the consumers are just a bunch of old use-to-be flower children that remember the good old days. If you read the posts here at all you'll realize that what we want are complete shows, or at least salvageable parts of shows, to add to our collections of complete shows, that the Dead Head community is active and still going to shows all over the country because we love the music, not the pretty pictures and cute packaging.
What Rhino needs to do to re-gain consumer confidence.
1. Bring customer service back to the USA. We want to be able to talk to someone that understands and comprehends English and is familiar with the band to help us with our problems.
2. Expand payment options to include checks, money orders and Paypal. Not all of us are former yuppies, some of us still don't buy into the credit card racket that helped drive the whole planet into a ressesion.
3. Start paying attention to what the demand for product really is instead of coming up with silly packages that look good on a shelf.
Other than that I wish all of you a truley wonderful and happy Grateful day.

The non deluxe version of this with the CD but apparently without the DVD is available from Amazon for $26.40 already reduced from $40.00.
Just search Grateful-Dead-Scrapbook on Amazon
Apparently the material in the book is (and I quote) 'culled from the Grateful Dead Archives at the University of California, Santa Cruz'. Was this the reason the material was given to Santa Cruz, so it could be 'culled' and sold to us.
Well I guess we could go the archive yourself and ask to see all this stuff for real. Hey! Why not send a bunch of deadhead volunteers to Santa Cruz with some digital cameras, photograph it all and put it all up with the archive material here for everyone to share. Just an idea.
Not willing to pay $75 for a bunch of photos and interviews. These clips could/should be released as full shows. How about a release of 11/24/78 in DVD form?
The Shakedown clip above is nothing special enough to make me want to plunk down 75 beans of my hard-to-earn money.
I check this site quite often hoping to see a video release from the vault, as many other Deadheads here. I'm not going to request what has already been requested a thousand times in these forums, but I have to say I am disappointed with this overpriced, directionless, cheesy $75 product.

Someone is paying some attention. They took "our" advice and put out two full shows for download of Fall 79 mterial after Road Trips # 1 Vol 1 and referenced our complaints when they put it out. Who knows how much attention they pay.
