David Lemieux Chat Recap
If you missed out on yesterday's chat with Grateful Dead archivist David Lemieux or you'd like to watch it again, you can check out the archived broadcast here.
I greatly enjoyed the video chat and hope that these will continue! It was great hearing such cool inside information about the Dead, their history, the shows and the archives, and Dave is a very cool guy with the best job in the world :)
I'm about 20 minutes into the chat and Dave has mentioned videos several times and mentions stuff coming out on "DVD". Will these releases be DVD only or will they also be on Blu Ray?
Really enjoyed the chat. Meant to ask, "how did you get this job!?" BTW, I'm with Equinox on the "Seastones." Some of us really do love that stuff!
Love the choice for this release!. It's less than a week before my first Dead show (8/5/74) so I'll admit I'm partial, but it IS a great era. One request: Could you guys please put a segment of the Seastones set on there? Some of us really do love that stuff.
Love what you guys are doing, keep it rollin! peace and love,
Dave! Dude -- 74 is a fantastic year. Please be insistent that sound is cleaned up and try to get rid of that hiss. A fine fine example is the GD movie soundtrack. That is a fantastic piece of audio from one of the best periods. Clean sound (some hiss yes) but man that is a fantastic job - especially when the vocals where not the best sounding that year (sung well, sound not so good).
We all don't need to hear it like we were there. We want to hear it clean full and all instruments blazing.
Listening to the Eyes from 07/31/74 as I write this (I am a subscriber) and I just hope it is cleaned up - (My Charlie Miller mastered version is foggy). I guess DP 24 just had a nice tape but it is a pretty good one. RT from 74 was great music but just needs that extra blemish reduction -- don't worry nobody will remember that level of detail anyway ;-)
Hey Dave , Thanks that was very cool I would love to see more of these.I'm sure your older brother is very proud of you.
Dave, et. al. - I really enjoyed the live chat. The transparency with the entire process is refreshing and much appreciated. I would love to see more of these - perhaps once a quarter or every other month. Not so frequent as to become banal, but often enough to keep us all apprised on the goings-on in Camp Dead. Thanks again!
The Bluray plans may or may not be true, but I thought I heard that. I do recall quite specifically him saying there are plans to rerelease the 14 live videos as a compilation package. It would not make sense to me that they would put them out as dvds again. That being said, that may or may not be the case they will be blurays.
Interesting, some good info, hope to see more of these. What I would really like to see would be a discussion, or even an actual official post/list of what shows are exactly in the vault. I'm sure there is a database/document/list of the shows that are there. I'd like to see that released. Love the accent and the way you pronounce your last name! Thanks!
