1985 Vine

I’ve listened to a lot of shows from 1985 and it seems to me that every night the band came out swinging for the bleachers. As often happens when you play that way, there are some strike-outs. But sometimes, when everything lines up “just exactly perfect”, you catch that sweet spot and launch a towering shot that sails out of sight. I believe these four shows represent a few of those shots.
So jump on the vine, crank it up loud, and take a tour of the stratosphere with the greatest band in the history of rock-and-roll.

This package contains a data DVD with all four shows in digital lossless format plus the audio CDs. First person on the list, you know the drill.

Can't get no love for this vine


PM'd tony for his address yesterday, haven't heard back. Guess I'll give him a few days (I've totally given up on Row Timmy) and if I don't hear from him I'll be mailing this out to That Nice Hippy Guy.

TNHG, now there's a viner you can count on!

Row Timmy appears to be MIA


It has been noted over on the "Three from '75" vine that Row Timmy seems to be MIA - PK mailed out that vine to him on 9/12 but no word from Timmy for two months now. I'll give him another day (and another PM) to get in touch, if no word then I'll mail the vine to tony.
