It was 30 years ago today, that the Dead set up to play their second show at Red Rocks. I taped the show in Omaha (2 days prior) and then these shows at Red Rocks.
These are the audience tapes of those 3 nights in July '78 with my Nak 550. I had patched into another rig with an 8 ft mic stand (later discovering that the kind taper was Bob Wagner) that got his Sony mics well above the crowd. Recently the GRATE folks at Mouth of the Beast graciously re-mastered my master Maxell cassette tapes with their modern electronic wizardry, meticulous expertise as well as their obvious love for the Dead's music.
Today I got a message from Lapilot who was about to vine these babies (before his Nero froze up). So let me do the honors.
First one on the list, pm me your address and I will get this send out to you.
Happy anniversary to us!

Audience, matrix and a soundboard > oh my!

Thanks Oroboros! You did make great FOB audience recordings of the 3 show July 1978 run from Omaha NE and Morrison CO. Lazy > Sup sizzles to close the 1st set.

Sometimes a vine gets buried back a few pages...

.. and tends to get lost. But some one should sign up for this vine... and PM Gr8fulTed. Some really fine playing on these shows. Comments from dsatche above worth repeating: "The recording of 7/5 is one of the BEST AUD's I have ever heard. And these are 3 of the top 20, if not top 10, shows of the year."

And from the original seeder (and taper of one show) Oroboros: "...the Omaha show ...there is no soundboard of and the Tapers Compendium notes is a grate '78 show. Taper Bob Wagner said Omaha was the best of the run, which is some heavy hitting considering."

Do yourself a favor and the postman will do the rest....
