20 Years So Far. Early Summer Tour Part 2: Wisconsin and Ohio
+ The FLAC DVD of Part 1

Well here goes folks. I’ve been piecing this one together, and with the help of two great connoisseurs and sharing kind souls, this one is ready to roll.

The first kind soul, is a great friend of mine from Seattle named ….well we’ll call him MIKE. The other is my personal “Captain Sully” of the Dead.net vineyard community ltapilot. Great thanks to both for making this goal of mine to get quality recordings this entire run possible.

This swing is when I got on the bus, and I feel very blessed to have seen some of these shows. The band seemed fired up every night. Such great hot summer nights under pavilions and stars.

This was really the last summer tour which played a lot of these smallish outdoor venues. After 1985 we bid farewell to shows at Merriweather Post and the Blossom Music Center. We were told they would never be able to play S.P.A.C. again after the 2nd level was swaying about as if a 7.0 earthquake struck and the damn deadheads would not stop sitting on the edge of the balcony (Phil-“50,000 people are waiting on you man”). We were able to see S.P.A.C. again in 88’. We got another year out of Riverbend and a couple more out of Alpine Valley and the Greek.

Anyway, I will vine the entire run from June 14th at the Greek Theatre until the Pittsburgh Civic Arena on July 2nd. The recordings will be a pleasant mix of soundboards and phenomenal audience recordings done by regulars in the taper community in the 80’s, the Oade brothers. The vine will be split into 3 so I can offer audio cd’s to the flacless.
“20 Years So Far”…….What a ride!

I will provide a DVD with Flac/Shn + the CDR's with MP3
