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.

3rd time's a charm - knock on wood. Another e-mail was just sent. Should it not receive a reply, dstache has volunteered his services to reseed his end of the vine - 9/29, 10/14, 10/29 and I have 10/11 - anyone got the other two?

Fall '77 Pt.1 Vine Update

Apparently, we're about to be reboarding the bus - Tom has an address to send the package. Special thanks to erickat's investigative abilities to get to the root of this vine.

So - it looks like I'm becoming the Vine investigator - or at least I'm paying attention to what's going on.

I sent Thomasdblls a PM & he responded on May 4.

> Eric,
> Yes I have it and two others(Sept 73-I think its one of the Eurovines and another one 12-69 Boston Shows). On one was a person listed after me, at this moment I don't know if it's the Fall 77 or Sept 73, I sent him 2 PM's for his address and he never sent me anything back.
> On the other vine no one is listed after me, last time I checked. So I don't know what to do. However the Dec 69 shows are no longer listed or at the least I can't find the vine and I've checked every possibility, I don't remember signing up for it(though I probably did). I've been meaning to send a general what's up message but time has not been on my side lately.
> So if you have any ideas about what to do with these 3 vines let me know. In the meantime I will continue searching the vines and Pm'ing whoever is on the list and also alerting everyone about the Boston shows. I guess I should of already done these things but I have been very busy, I know it's no excuse....
> Anyway let me know if you think of anything
> Later Tom

My response was... Socrateazer indicated on a previous vine that he was going into the hopital & wanted to be withdrawn from the vine.
If he doesn't respond - PM the next on the list. I have addresses for chincaat503, reedchris, and unclejon

Hopefully, this will get going again soon. I sent him an email today as well.
