Releases of music/Dave's Picks

Is it me or are we basically seeing snapshot shows from roughly the same years? There are so many better ways to go. We all have our favorites, and just adding my ideas just in case David is reading.

1- uh, review Dick's and Dave's Picks as well as Road Trips...boy seeing much acoustic are you? Nice boxed set idea: '80 Radio City Run juxtaposed with SF/Warfield electric. Now that would be hot.

2- individual, historical and amazing? The only time GD played Alaska was in 1980 at High Auditorium. I have the bootleg CD and it is priceless right from Alabama through Estimated, Black Peter and Around and Around. This, my friends, is high quality!

3- Shakedown from Hartford: 1982. I defy you to find a better live Shakedown anywhere.

4- Lastly, and true to my desires, let's get some more acoustic shows from the '70s.

Thanks for reading,

Next DVD Box Set

A great DVD box set would be the 5 nights (10/16/1974 to 10/20/1974) that made up the "Grateful Dead Movie"! Great Music, Great Sound System and what a fun time for the band!

Europe 72

Does anyone know which show from Copenhagen in 72 was considered better?
I heard David Lemieux talk on GD radio--he felt one of these shows was considered the best show from the Europe 72 tour.

4/14/72 or 4/17/72

Any help would be much appreciated.

Vault Index to be released?

Did DL mention about why or why not a vault index would or would not be released for Deadheads? I don't believe Archive and E-T have everything in the vault.

Just that it would be useful to know what to buy, considering what I already have.

thanks Dave

in response to your question, yes please do it again. Lots of interesting info and insights there and you covered a lot of ground. Am really excited about Dave's Picks 2. Bit disappointed that there is no new video on the near horizon and that they are just going to recycle what is there already (with some bonus material of course to make us buy it all again!). Still if there was nothing to complain about we would be complaining about that.

Folks, you can still watch the chat on

re: furthur releases

I didn't catch anything on the Pury Jerry front. However, Dave did mention a 14 disc box set rerelease of all the video material released thus far. He seemed especially keen on the 'So Far' release with 'Backstage Pass' as a bonus feature. He mentioned that a ton of good video is in the vault, but much of it is from the unusable (Dave's sentiment) years of '94-'95. And yes, the next DaP will be complete show Hartford 7-31-74. There will be a bonus disc with the release but it hasn't yet been determined the contents - - he mentioned the contents could be culled from the '74 Pacific Northwest tour. The decision should be made by February according to what I heard. I'm hoping the 5-25 Santa Barbara show remains untapped so that it can be released in its entirety someday. I'm not sure if DaP 2 will include Phil and Ned or not. Dave also mentioned that the entire chat will be archived and available on

Nice Chat...

...well done, Dave. Excited about the first two Dave's Picks. Glad I subscribed. So, will "Seastones" be included with Dave's Pick Two? Here's hoping it will be!

just couldn´t follow the live chat, so asking here:
where there some hints on forthcoming new Pure Jerrys or Box sets or DVDs or other releases;
the next Dave´s Picks is really from 1974?
