I love the Grateful Dead but this site has problems

You guys coulda made another $500.00 bucks offa me above and beyond all those winterland tickets I bought back in da day... but I forgot my password and you have this infuriaTING CIRCULAR THING THAT JUST KEEP S sending me around and around(hey.. there could be a song there!)
However I just listened to Jerry solo on Hes gone and it filled me with such renewed admiration for the way he could express his emotions through melody... I always lived for those sublime moments when he just squeezed every bit of his heart out in every note and sent me on a roller coaster ride of emotion. I miss Jerry the musician cuz that all he wanted to be and he was damn good at it. A nice guy too.. I met him a coupla times in Cotati.
Anyways, I wanted to buy that Wichita tape that you gave me a nibble of and WTF!! Its sold out...Cmon u guys,, u got one more to sell me .. for old times.. all those 2am dinners at IHOP after a dead show... the tuesday nights and thursdays were always the best.. I skipped the Saturday night s after a while cuz Jerry always got most inspired when he didnt feel obligated to.
I hope Phil sees this.. I'd like to share with him this little pure nugget of musical wisdom that Jerry said to me when we talked.. I think he might appreciate it.

To me it's kind of like Dead

To me it's kind of like Dead archaeology, like when they excavated Rancho Olompali and found all those records. It's an historical event that may have left behind historical artifacts of one sort or another. The one bit of history I have found, and I don't know accurate it is alludes to John Williams being a program director around that time. But as an historical event created to span some length of time it does have a beginning, a middle and an end, with a unique plot arc spanning that length. So if anyone has information about this, please post it. If the bet hasn't been paid off, it might even be worth getting the two together again, if for no other reason than historical closure.

Good question. I know someone knows the answer to this one around here. I have a vague recollection we were just talking about this a few years ago...

An off the wall question about a bit of Dead lore/history

I am unable to start threads, so someone suggested this link to me to reply to an existing thread. My question is about Sam Hughes and John Williams. Those are the two guys in the 1977 Dead movie who were filmed while arguing about the movie itself. Sam Hughes was claiming that it was too commercial and exploited the Dead fans for money. John argued that it wasn't, and that in a few years Sam would watch the movie and like it. They ended up making a bet. Does anyone know what the bet was, whether or not it was paid off by the loser and/or what ever became of Sam Hughes and John Williams? I've searched the Internet but only found references to the segment in the film. In a way I would think many people would have followed up on this since it was such a noticeable part of the film, but I haven't had any luck.

Thanks.

Why is there no info. from Dead.net about the Hampton '79 release? It's only a week until the release date. I wonder if this a Rhino release, a Dead.net sponsored release, or a third party release? I'd have thought they would be hyping it up on the home page by now. For a 'listening party' check the DaP 9 thread, I posted five links of stuff David Lemieux has played over the years on the Taper's Section. If you are viewing the comments in newest first, it is post number 1508. If you are viewing them oldest first it is post number 922.
