Improvements? Really?

All these new improvements are slowly eroding my confidence in this system. Disappearing vines, lost messages, etc.

Sorry but it has become almost impossible to work with this new, improved system.

Best Wishes to All!! I'll be around alot less until the gurus actually accomplish something!!

in the Vineyard lately! (Thanks JakeR!) ;o)
So ... here's some more from Philly!
9/13 was not only one of my favorite post-Brent shows,

Here are the 3 Fall shows from the Spectrum in

Fix of shnid 7637

The bass track at the end of CD 2 was a carbon copy of the first
minute and a half of d3t01, except d3t01 had a < 1 second gap. I
picked a splice point on both tracks, deleted the redundant material
in between, and fused the two into one seamless track (new d3t01),
then got rid of d2t08. The nonseekable shns were converted to FLAC
and any resulting SBEs from the fix were corrected with shntool.

Bill Tetzeli (
When this source was first circulated, the flac files contained
REPLAYGAIN tags. The wav files compressed inside the flac files are
fine, but if you listen to the flac files themselves using a player
like WinAMP, these tags cause all the tracks to be played at the same
volume. That's not good for concerts where some tracks are supposed to
be louder than others.

There's a new version of this source available. It has exactly the
same wav files; it's just the flac wrapper that's different, the
wrapper doesn't have REPLAYGAIN set anymore. The new version has the
same ffp file (since the wav's are the same), but a new md5 file
(since the flac files are different). The md5 file for the old source
is called "orig-flac-replaygain-md5"; the md5 file for the good new
source is called "flac-md5". If you have a source for this that
matches the ffp, you can create the new source by unflac'ing the old
source and then recompressing at flac level 8 using the flac command
line tool or the flac frontend.

From now on, only the new version of the source should be circulated.

Retracked version of shnid 1561
Audio data are 100% identical to original .shn source, as confirmed with included .cfp checksums

Original source information as follows:

CDR>EAC>MKW Utility>.shn files by

Further editing by Bill Tetzeli:

- decoded Shn > WAV in Trader's Little Helper
- merged .wavs into one track using WaveMerge
- split into separate tracks using CDWave
- Flaced level 6 with Flac Frontend
- CFP of original .shns created with TLH. FLAC CFP created by replacing .shn references with references to FLAC files via text editing, to insure CFP checksum was identical. FLACs verify using CFP checksum, therefore total FLAC audio data confirmed identical to .shns.
- all other checksums likewise created in TLH
- FLAC metatags added in mp3tag

- cut in Wheel at 29 secs.

CD received from Lisa Biasi to work on an audience video of this show using Lazy Cow assets. EAC extraction 100% for all files. Lisa's copy does not have the hiss that is present on other seeds of this set. A speed problem (approx 2.5 seconds fast per 1 minute) as compared to the video was corrected along with the following patches using the Lazy Cow video audio track (JVC Single Tube Camera, Nak 300 Shotguns).

Performed the following patches:
1) Between Little Red Rooster and Peggy O - 47.007 seconds were missing from sbd - patched and normalized from the video's audio track.
2) Between Memphis Blues and Tennessee Jed - 36.212 seconds were missing from sbd - patched and normalized from the video's audio track.

7. It's All Over Now Baby Blue (Encore)


I believe this is a somewhat significant improvement on the existing seed of 9/11/88 that is out there. There was no hiss on my DAT, so I believe this is a Digital SBD or a very fine cassette master. NO NOISE-REDUCTION was performed on this seed


1. Drop outs removed using Cool Edit and Cross Fades at 3:15 of D1.T1
2. Drop outs removed using Cool Edit and Cross Fades at 1:50 and 2:11 at D1.T2
3. My original Disks had D1 ending at Wheel and D2 Starting at Stella Blue. Both were faded in. Used Cool Edit Pro 1.2 to reconstruct a contiguous (non fade between Wheel and Stella Blue)

Love Me Some 83 Vine

So here is almost all of the Fall 1983 shows that are not already available for the pickens' here in the lush auditory fields of the Vineyard. I'm a big fan of 1983 and there are some real gems here. This is everything from 9/13 forward excluding 10/18. It's available, I just haven't grabbed it yet. I wanted to get some more music flowing now that the "Vineyard Wormholes" and gremlins have been put in check. A BIG thanks to Mary and all the IT folks for all their hard work and Deadication. Thank you!!

I think the Dead were on fire for all of this Fall 1983 tour, especially the Mountain shows(9/2-9/11) and the east coast stuff featured here. St Stephen makes it's last 3 appearances during this tour as I am sure most of you know. 10/17 and 10/21 are exceptional shows and the Matrices of these shows are AWESOME!! Enjoy, and remember to be kind to each other.

4 DVD's

This is a vine by Jake R. I am copy/pasting it from the jettisoned "new decade, new vines" vine. Please give jake the credit for this vine.

November 1970 Vine

I've decided to offer up this little 5 DVD vine. However, almost all of these are auds so listener beware. That being said, you will find some true gems in these shows.
This was originally going to be a 2 DVD vine with one source/transfer of each show but I have decided to include all known sources/transfers of the auds so you, the listener, can pick which you like.
*NOTE: Apparently 11/23 could be 11/16
