Grateful Dead

"Heynow, Heynow,." Dr. John Vine 1972-1985

started by Oroboros

This is a single flac DVD that will unbundle to 13 CDs. (Sorry no wav CDs) Sources include soundboards, radio broadcasts, and audience recordings, and you can see special guests often sit in with the Doctor for some bayou boogie and to help spice up the gumbo.
FYI- Dr. John is trade-friendly and all these shows have been freely traded around (and recently landed at my house.)
Dr. John's studio CDs are legend, seek and ye shall find 'em.

I found the missing shows that I need. if I can get these then I can complete the re-seed. If someone has these off hand then they can send me a disc or I can get the vine of another location.


I have 47 sources as of now. These above will fill in the 54 source total.

Howdy folks,

I'm willing to do a re-seed for this great vine. I received this vine through another website a little while back....1 out of my 9 discs does not work for some reason as it will not run on my computer. The sources I currently have in order are:

Disc 01

Disc 02

Disc 03

Disc 04

Disc 05
Jerry Interview7 10 1981 St Paul, Minnesota
jg81-01-31.jgb.sbd.braveman.31055.set II.flac16

Disc 06


Disc 07

Disc 08

Disc 09

I would like to get the sources from the disc that does not work for me before I send this out, that way it's complete. In the meantime I'm trying to track this vine again from where I originally found it to obtain the missing sources or maybe someone can send me the disc with the sources I don't have. I'm still puzzled why my disc numbers don't match up with the above shown.

I re-vined this on 2 other sites so another 10 or so people shared this too, so please take some solace in that Stuman. I think it is still active one place, but not with many people signing up, and it died from lack of interest at the other place after a little while. RIP. I may have already said this here, but I will say it again, these shows blow away the Dead's shows from the same year.
