...no special reason in fact, just disorganised I suppose

I do like orchids too..5 species grow in my garden and around 30 in my commune, first leaves pushing up now.

Badgers love grapes

I come from England, but live in France right now. I got into the Dead in 73, missed their 74 tour of Europe and did not see them until they came again in ’81 (my first show was my birthday show). I lost touch in the 80’s as the releases and European tours dried up and I was not hooked into any trader networks. Just played and loved the old vinyls. My interest revived when Dicks Picks and Vault Series started appearing. I last saw the Dead in 1990 on their final trip to Europe, and I was able to take my 8 year old son to one of the shows!

I have been working and living in many parts of the world the last 12 years as an environmental and wildlife conservation adviser and trainer in developing countries. I still travel a lot and never leave home without an iPod stuffed with GD goodies. I may not have seen that many shows, but I have grooved to the Dead in at least 50 countries!!

This vining community is great, long may it last. I’ve worked out how to do torrents and such, but my connection is very slow here and there’s nothing quite like a package of discs in the post!
SPECIAL OFFER. If anyone wants some help keeping track of their GD collection, I can send them a simple Excel spreadsheet listing the dates and venues of all GD shows and the dates of most official live releases.
It has 4 columns: Date, Venue, City/State/Country, Official Release with Material from Show. You can add more columns to check your shows as you collect them. It is a 200kb file; PM me with an email address if you want it sent as a file attachment.

hey

Like Oroboros and Hal R, I also worked in the mental health field. I worked at a group home and an apartment program in Michigan (where I am from) while in college then for a couple years in Boston after college. Yeah, I moved to Boston AFTER college. Entire town is made up of college students! Live in NYC now, practicing law as a contract attorney. Married to a wonderful and understanding (re: the Dead) woman and the rest of my immediate family consists of a golden retriever and two cats.

Got on the bus in the early 90's while in college, only saw 9 shows but loved it, only in retrospect did I realize I saw the band in their decline. Before I got into vining, Dick's Picks were my main source for Dead enjoyment, followed by a radio program here called Morning Dew. Have about 200 tapes that I made listening to the program. Most of my knowledge of the Dead come from those sources as well as the Taping Compendiums (must haves IMO). Don't listen to the radio program any longer, like to go out on Sat nights now. I absolutely love being part of the vining community, so glad I discovered it.

I go in and out of heavy Dead listening. For the 6 mos before finding this board, I listened exclusively to jazz. I have an interest in classic rock (someone made fun of Boston on one of these boards recently, HISSS, GREAT debut album) and early 80's music (childhood, I guess). Mostly it is the Dead and jazz. I have a pretty good collection of Miles and Coltrane, but I go a little deeper with Art Pepper, Dave Brubeck, and Don Ellis.

Back to the Dead, I think the peak periods were '69, spring and fall '72, fall '73, all of '77, and very early '78. Of course, I love Dark Star and Dew, but I'd list Help>Slip>Franklin's, China>Rider, Scarlet>Fire and St. Stephen as favorite tracks/combos. I also love Brent!

Some comments

brewsterboy - I thought you were a home brewer of beer and thus the title. By the way, I heard your little town mentioned on NPR the other day with the primaries and thought - I know someone there. How are the butterflies?

Sunshine Daydream - Bob - I was born in 1956, I guess quite a few of us here are choice relics from the 50's.

Oroboros - I work in the Mental Health field as well.

It's me, Andy

Ok, I guess I’ll just jump right in on this boat too.
My name is Andy (Brewster boy) and the Brewster is for
Brewster Academy in Wolfeboro, NH where I went to high school and discovered the Dead from one of my friends. That was in 1977 and I had the opportunity to see
these talented people play many times at a great time on their musical journey.
My last show was at Soldier Field in 1990 or ’91 on a really cold summer day.
I’m in my 50th. year and living in the White Mountain National Forest. I am property manager of a fine Inn just below Crawford Notch near Bartlett, NH.
My favorite show has to be 9/6/80 (check this one out in the show look-up) because
it was just Sooo Right! Everything about being young, free, high, with friends and a
sense of community while just being there was something that will never be forgotten.
Anyway, back around ’92 I lost all my Dead material (bummer) and had fallen from the world of the Maxell UD-XL2. With the help of everyone on this forum I have managed to start rebuilding what I lost and have missed so dearly over the years. It sounds weird but I used to have those shows that everyone had and still would like to posses some of those wicked boards like 12/1/79, 8/28/82, ’78 capitol theater, those Portchester, NY shows and many others I can’t think of off the top of my head. Hopefully these will become offerings over time.
I wish everyone Peace and music dancing through the air.
Andy

Hey Derek,
Just remember we all have your address too.
