ISO of The Dead playing the Obama Inauguration

hey now. word has it...this was a warm-up type performance. the guys will pull it together after a bit more practice. the first show is always a treat (greensboro). a big crowd is expected with a high level of spirit and anticipation. make it if you can or look for the show on

Hey now!

Is there any word on a possible taper at the Obama inaugural ball set?

Boys were hittin' on all cylinders. Jerry took the stage, plugged in, threw the strap over his shoulder and launched with Touch. Both sets sizzled. Highlights: Half Step>Rider>Playin'>UJB>Supp. Jam; Comes A Time

The Greek 7-15-88

this show from the greek is just smoking. i have an audience recording that not only perfectly captures all of the bands playing perfectly, but, has the right levels of the audience at the right times. the post space tunes are in excellent contrast to each other culminating with a morning dew that is so beautiful it will bring you to tears. the gimme some lovin has some fun jamming and tight playing with all especially phil and brent. this is a top notch 80's show featuring my favorite dead keyboardist, brent

Geez, Brick--you sure know how to choose tough shows...

I did a quick surf of etree and found two downloads for the Portland 6/24/73 show, both of which appear to be the same source and length, and both of which are VERY partial (best guess is about 60% of the show).

Both can be downloaded using a bit torrent program at, and both are approximately 661 megabytes (but since neither of them is a recent post, they will both probably take a fairly long time to complete).

If there IS a complete show out there, it probably just hasn't surfaced online yet (not all tapers joined the Internet bandwagon, and a LOT of tapes are lying in boxes, unseen for years).

Now, if you needed the previous night's show from Vancouver, BC, instead, that one is fairly easy to get (in fact, I was listening to it in my car today).
