Today In Grateful Dead History

I like the show, however, I got one beef with Lemieux's presentation. Play the songs first, then give me the schpeal on what went down this night. Or give me the schpeal but don't tell me the songs I'm about to hear. The only joy of hearing this stuff is not knowing what's coming next. How much fun would it be if the Grateful Dead came out and announced the set list before the show began. It would suck.

So if you read this stuff David, how about it? I like hearing the schpeal if you were there and any insights to the crowd, weather, ambiance, etc from the show your about to play. But don't announce the songs beforehand. I like to think 99% of the Heads out there can recognize the tunes and it makes listening all that more enjoyable when you don't know what's coming next.

And it would be better than having to turn off the radio until yer done yakkin' and guess when to turn it back on.

deadhead style

i agree donna would be the cat's meow if she played a few show's im going to the chicago show and that would be awsome to see her play with the dead,seen donna a few times at vibes in ny 2005 2006,and i was impressed with her show's seen her 2007 in black river falls wisconson,the three g's,i was disapointed with the turn out of hippies maybe 500 people there when she played only about 50 people watched her,i was sort of embarrased for her,thought they wouldn't come back to the three g's in black river falls,last year ohio.2009 back here i'm shocked!the campground is awsome,hopefully more hippies this year!give me some feed back,i wish and hope the dead play at alpine valley one of the greatest out door venue's in the good old usa!

The Tales... last week was a great show...the hours flew by...Tribute bands I believe are essential in keeping the music alive and thriving..not only with the older heads but by turning newbies onto the love and timeless bliss of Dead tunes...good stuff...the torchbearers are definitely out there helping to keep it burning brightly...much love...see ya at Camp ZOE in April!!!! it's right around the corner!!!

Hey now ROBBIEnCASSIDY, got two of your shows...


Decent (better than decent) recordings of two of those shows are currently circulating in the Vineyard:

Euphoria Ballroom 7/16/70 - included as part of the "Ladies and Gentlemen..." vine

Oxford Plains Speedway 7/2/88 - included as part of the "Vineyard 1st Anniversary Vine"

There's eight or nine people already on both of the signup lists so it would be nearly two months before the shows could get to you, but for a patient 'head, there they are!

Cheers, MitD

current schedule for 3 times a day concert?

What's the deal? We finally get a new schedule format on the serius Dead website at the end of January and it still isn't updated past feb. 5. The schedule has been hit and miss,missing a lot more than hitting! You would think we would get better service for something we have to pay for, I've tried making David Gans aware of this problem through the feedback option on this site but no response. Anyone have another source for pre-broadcast info? I just want to record the shows I've been to, hard drive space is NOT unlimited.

New Release Coming Soon

I was just listening to "Tales from the Golden Road" on Sirius, and Gary Lambert said that he just finished writing the liner notes for a brand new, complete show, Rhino vault release. He made it a point to say that this won't be a part of the Road Trips series. Hopefully all of the Road Trips haters will be pleased (if only for a moment). Personally, I love Road Trips, and I love complete shows too. What I'd like to see is a new box set and a JGB release (or two). Nevertheless, I wait patiently...
