Our friends the Rhinos have various and sundry new releases in the development process, but they're always interested in hearing what you'd like to see hit the virtual shelves of the Store. No promises, but you never know...

This topic is for requesting new box sets. There are also topics for individual shows and DVDs.

If you've already requested something in the previous Requests topic, you don't really need to request it again, but hey, if you just can't help yourself...

July 2015 Shows

Probably a silly question. Are the July 4.5.6 shows going to be released on cd/DVD/blue ray ?

Early 80s or Spr/Summer 85 sets, & re-rls complete F. West box!

First, I'll second the recent Wall of Sound shows box set request as a good choice- absolutely love '74- including a full 6/18/74 and 6/23/74 in a box set, for example. Or perhaps a good '71 box.

Even more so, though, I'd like to see releases from the first half of the 80s, which have been so neglected in the Dead discography-
some greats include 8/28/81, 4/19/82, 9/21/82, 4/16 and 4/17/83, and 7/22/84. Plus of course a bunch of '85 shows.

And speaking of '85- Spring and Summer of '85 had so many great shows- the band was crisp and energetic- 3/25, the Nassau shows, 3/31, Meriwether- 6/30/85! Great shows from later in the summer and early fall, too.

And while I do love '68-'74 most of all, and '77 quite a lot, obviously the early 80s have been so underrepresented (and are my favorite Dead era after those above)- not sure if it's simply the quality of the master tapes or what. There's enough strong and unique playing from that era to merit these kinds of releases.

Still, a re-release in some form of the Fillmore West 1969 Complete Recordings box set would be EXTREMELY APPRECIATED by many people here who missed getting it during the extremely brief period before it sold out- and from what I recall, it was fairly affordable by Dead box set standards.

Finally, on that note- please no more $200+ box sets, unless like Europe '72 the shows can be ordered individually!!

I've been waiting for this Buffalo show on vinyl. I pre-ordered my copy and noticed the price already went up once.

SPECTRUM SHOWS!!!

Passenger.08 I'm from Philly. I did not miss a Spectrum Show. I have always said that TPTB @ dead.net should take a good look at those shows for release. THOSE PHILLY SHOWS were especially awesome at THE SPECTRUM and were usually always SMOKIN' HOT! They ALWAYS played real good for Philly. Any decade. A box of SPECTRUM SHOWS would be a big money maker for sure. A Fine Suggestion Indeed!

Philly Box

Box set of Philly Spectrum sell outs, break it out into decades. Kind of like the seasons idea, spring, summer, fall to keep boxes a little more affordable. Second the emotion of 73-74 Wall.
