Can we view it?

Is there any way to view the transcript of the chat? Surely it's saved somewhere?

Well done

Very enjoyable, a nice experience that exceeded my expectations. The stories, such as the Bear one, were really cool. The hour flew by. Awesome that it was available immediately after the live stream. Would love a hint on the next box set if this is done again. Although I don't expect any serious live Jerry releases any time soon, keeping everyone's hopes up would be some consolation.

Videos from the 60's and 70's. There are a lot of bootleg copies of professionally shot shows out there. Many you probably don't have the rights to, but others like Durham, NC 1978 and all the Capital Theater, Passaic, NJ shows and, most especially, the full show videos popping up on Wolfgang's Vault (New Year's run 1977, New Year's run 1980...)... I assume you folks could be releasing beautiful transfers of these with lossless sound mixes (on Blu-ray). Either as separate releases or as a CD/DVD/Blu-ray package. Are there any plans for these? And if not, how can we inspire you to release this priceless footage of full shows from the Grateful Dead's peak era?

Box sets

With so many great NYE shows in the history of the Dead, why not grab a bunch of them for a box set?

Can we ask

DL why the hell deadheads can't have access to the vault index. Not condition or anything, just what, exactly, is there?

In one particular instance of Candyman, Jerry sang, "if I had a shotgun, I would PROBABLY blow you straight to hell". What show was it and was it the only time he did it? Also, was it due to lack of commitment re the killing or was it just a freak occurance? Short: what's with the Probably?

Home on the Range

There were some epic shows in the Midwest, at least to us flatlanders that never got to go to the coasts or the mountains: Des Moines Fairgrounds in 73 & 74, one in Wichita KS, Mississippi River Festival in the 80's, a 4th of July at Sandstone in KC, OKC, a couple in Nebraska, and many other great gigs in St. Louis and KC. Phil handed me a Heinken during a sound check at the University of Iowa in the old basketball gym in 72 or 73. Some have been released, at least in part... Any chance we might get some more of these, even a 'Home on the Range' package?
