    2nd Half '72

    Let's do it. Let's outdo both the Europe '72 and 30 Trips box sets in one fell swoop. I'm calling for a 35 shows. Are there 35 left?

    1985!

    I agree 100%. I am among the many who became a Deadhead in '85. I have heard various arguments why there are only 2 shows officially released from that year, most often citing Garcia's lack of vocal strength, But there were so many great shows that year and tremendous playing from Garcia. Summer '85 certainly deserves a box drawn from maybe 6-8 select shows. Individually, I would like to see the Nassau 3/28/85 show released, because it was nuts. If Scarlet-Fire is your jam, 1985 had some epic versions. 1989-90 had a lot of great shows, but we have 2 big box sets and numerous CD and DVD releases. 1980-1985 is woefully under-represented. It's getting personal!

    28/9/77 - 2/10/77

    Autumn 77 Box to complement the Spring 77 box.

    28/9 and 29/9 need an upgrade and the latter is a favourite. 1/10 is Ok and 2/10 is seriously great, we already have good sounding boards but that doesn't seem to stand in the way of official releases selling out.

    2/10 could be my favourite show, not so much for any individual song (except for the Truckin jam which is one of my favourite few minutes of GD of all time) but just a complete package of smooth but powerful 77.

    Madison Square Garden September 1979 3 Night-Run in N.Y.C.!

    This would be a great release which could even be joined with other Fall 79 shows. It was a 3 night run at M.S.G.. Brent was still relatively new and these would be his N.Y.C. debut shows. Brent hits the Big Time!! . . . and almost on Broadway!!! While they are not 1980s shows, they are close enough. Brent & The 80s are a period and keyboardist the fans are clamouring for -- this N.Y.C. MSG run fits the bill. They are historic shows. The energy was high on both sides of the stage. The crowd supplied loud over the top New York City energy which the band fed on and returned tenfold. There was that motorcycle belonging to Steve Parish parked on stage one night and you can hear some merry pranksters revving the engine during drums>space. This one would sell out quickly. Think about it . . ..

    Likewise Alaska 1980 would be great too. Perhaps the Go to Nassau shows as a mini box? Or alternatively, a Spring 1980? Melk Weg? Europe 1990?

    ARK or Avalon Ballroom 1969

    I've seen several comments with regard to releasing the April 21,22,23 dates from the ARK as a box set. But I'd be equally happy if the Avalon Ballroom dates were released as a box. It looks like the tapes of some of the Avalon dates are incomplete but the Dead were there for 3 days each in January & April and the quality of those shows was such that The Eleven & Lovelight were part of the Live/Dead release, so combining the January/April dates would be an idea.

    It's think it's time (especially 50 years later) to put out another primal Dead box set as a companion piece to the Fillmore West shows. And since I think it'd sell out quickly it would also be a candidate for an AllMusic issue in addition to the limited versions.

    Guest Box Sets

    Grateful Dead and (guest’s name) Box.

    Bundle together all the shows where a particular person/band joined in.

    This is mainly an attempt to get the GD/ABB stuff released, which would probably need to span a couple of Box Sets.

    But, a GD/Dylan Box would be cool too, as well as all the Santana appearances together.

    How about a mini box set of the 3 shows in Ventura, California in 1987. People are always complaining that you don't do enough of the 80's shows. It would make them happy. They were 3 great shows! Jerry was recovering from almost dying, and he was hot! The 3 Ventura shows from 1987 would make a great mini box set!

    1985 Summer tour

    This may be the dumbest request for a box set since so many SB's are out there. How about the 1985 Summer tour? My tapes are dying and this stuff turned me on to the modern Dead!

Any of the Las Vegas runs from the 1990's AND buy the rights from the opening acts to include them in there too! (Santana, Steve Miller, Sting, Traffic, DAVE MATTHEWS BAND!) That would be cool! I would love to see a box seet come out from a whole run like that! All the sets from all 3 shows! How about a box set of the Shoreline run from August 1991. A real winner! Egypt 1978 Box Set with lots of photos and the best of the music! I would buy it! How about a DVD of that too! The Return of the Warlocks Box set from Hampton 1989. Would also make a great DVD set too! A new Years Eve Box Set! All of the New Years shows the band played - EVER! Could also do different themed box sets! 4th of July!, April Fools Day, etc..... Well, thems some idears. (^_^)

I agree with above.... Santana/Dead or SMB/GD would be a great box set. I would also suggest the 10/89 Run in Hampton, the Shoreline run from Aug 91 or perhaps a Cal Expo box set with various shows from there or say a Shoreline box set etc... Perhaps a MSG box set or LA Forum..you get the idea...Eric

These shows would make a great release as far as full runs go. The band seemed in great spirits and the playing was consistently strong throughout ( if memory serves).

I was one of those who pre-ordered before the pre-order page was officially "live". It was a sad moment when I read the email explaining the snafu. Although I have high quality recordings of the November 73 Winterland shows, I'd happily plunk down some cash for an even higher quality, nicely boxed, official release! Hey, if it was pretty much in the can already, why not go ahead and let it rip? Thanks!

I would love to hear box sets of a full run at a given venue For example 1. Winterland 11/9 - 11/11 '73 2. Boston 6/9 - 6/12 '76 3. Anchorage 6/19 - 6/21 '80 4. Boston 12/29 - 12/31 '69 5. Chicago 12/03 - 12/05 '79 6. Boston 9/20 - 9/26 '91 7. New York 9/14 - 9/20 '90

Talking with my friend about how this should be put out and the traditional "Box Set" would be too much. The first thing that comes to mind is making it available to download. I think a lot of folks are donwloading more music and jewel cases are becoming things of the past. Now to make these available to the folks that don't download, how about just a spool like the spools of blank CD's you buy. No need for any crazy box with all sorts of graphics. Just a spool of CD's with the infromantion printed right on them. Check Out My Orignal Music at myspace.com/salaversano

With the spaceship on the cover....At least 86-89 ( tons of gems like Box, Roadrunner (not a breakout per se but a damn good version; the great Terrapin from 3.24.87, The 88 breakouts and slamming 3/27/88 show. Oh and those "Formally The Warlocks" shows. They were kinda decent. “The Omnipotent Grateful Dead!”

I'm also into box sets that cover entire runs at the same venue. I'd like to see a box with the 6 Orpheum 76 shows in their entirety: 7/12-7/14 and 7/16-7/18. It would be beyond incredible to have EVERYTHING available from Europe 72 released. Perhaps that could be released by week in boxes and/or available as individual releases. It would definitely be cool to see an audio/video release of 8/27/72 (with both cds and dvds) too. I'll post more as I think of things... :-)

I would like to see the sessions that Donna and Ron Tutt arranged between Elvis and Jerry finally see the light of day. I hear that the guitar jams with Jerry and James Burton are just amazing.

Why not re-release Fillmore West 1969? It's a proven seller and many could not react quick enough. It's got to be a better move than taking back mp3 again@ :)

How about The complete Fillmore East run from Feb. 1970, or April 1971. I know they already released Ladies and Gentlemen, but the complete recordings of the run that closed the famed Fillmore East in 1971 would be perfect for a boxed set!

I would love a box set of a full 1970 show! The ones from mid 1970 with:Acoustic Dead NRPS with Jerry on steel guitar set 1 of Electric Dead set 2 of Electric Dead 1970 is my favorite year in the GD history, just for the sheer magnitude of how long the shows were and how good they were! Sadly, I know that few of these full shows were recorded... even by the audience. But there MUST be a couple of FULL shows from this historic period in the vault... please... there just has to be...

How 'bout a Crate Set from 10/19/71 to 12/31/72? That'd be Vol.1. Vol.2 would be from 2/09/73 to 10/20/74. That'd pretty much do it.

I agree 100% with Sunshine-daydre and Estim8ed. How about rereleasing this marvelous run. I too put my order in after it sold out of the numbered editions. It would also put a crimp into it being sold on Ebay for upwards of $400.00 a shot. This run is too important to only be enjoyed by a select few who actually got them.

Since it's out of print: this thing is fair game to being copied and spread around. Who wants a copy??? The fact that they haven't put this up for download on the offical site just goes to show how stupid Rhino is when it comes to making money from the vault. Or maybe that is their plan to sit on the vault for 7 years and release next to nothing. Oh I forgot about the cool puzzles and shirts they are selling. Good ROI on that stuff, what a bunch of financial wizards these Rhino guys are proving to be. It's almost November and not a peep about what they are planning on offering for the Christmas season. That was always fun looking forward to the new DVD or Dick's Pick and montly downloads. Man those were the days. Now I just spend my money on other stuff. Keep up the good work Rhino.

Hey Bought all the dicks picks! would continue to buy.... But alas snip its and partials are uninteresting to me and most every head I know... Shows and tours and runs have a flow. We were heads because of the personal interaction between us the heads and them the band. Sometimes the divide, in reality, was large as they lived there own lives and were separate from us but at the show we were part of the Geshtault ( sorry spelling) .... Part of the band.... Not having the end to end experience really kills it for me and many many others... This is all said with the utmost respect and love. Your vault sounds better than everything that circs and if it get released it will sell and the circ sources will fall away... I'm not saying that it has to be Dicks Picks... I'm sure Dave knows what we want... How about the whole tour of Europe '72... The Acadamy Run.... Classic Winterland Runs... Spotlight on MSG... Go to University (great 70's university Gym shows.. Ala every time they played Cornell), May '77, Spotlight on the wall of sound., comparison boxes of 73 vs 74 set lists and playing styles ( take shows or runs form the consecutive years at the same venue release all the shows and write white papers on the development of the music and playing. Include comments form great tape traders and tapers). We love to read that stuff the book alone is worth the price of admission. If you involve us the community in your plans and releases and we will beat a path to the store! We don't care if they circ in SBD form or not... They will sell non the less we all always want the best quality and we know its in the vault.... Non circ sources are always a treat but don't let it stop you form creating master classes in the bands development over time... How about High res 24bit show releases! The packaging for the stuff I talked about above is not critical. They can come in a CD sleeve or sleeve pages...with printed out notes for a binder. You can sell the binder as well (3ring). And everyone populates the binders as the shows and releases come out with the notes. It would create a whole library to reference. Less cost in packaging and art work... You can sell accessories to it like the little things people put on there crocks alla tabs for organization. A data base plug in to track the collection. Download capability for shows controlled by the plug in to verify and guarantee copy write. Through the plug in have community connection through chat so everyone who has the interface and shows can swap ideas all through your interface... That is marketing control. That is building community. Thats the way to maximize sales and loyalty... You would be creating and controlling the 'Digital Parking Lot of tour'... Have weekly listening parties that all heads and vault people can chat over INCLUDE US! Sell Inserts for art on the site for people to buy and slide in to customize there collecting experience... I could go on and on... You have such a great opportunity. If you track the sites out there today you have a lot of bridges to re build but you will and can as in the end WE LOVE YOU! Any way... I love the band have supported you for years and will continue to This is not a rant and was written with love so take it that way Love IMINCHARGE

I am listening to the Grateful Dead Channel on Sirius and David Lemieux's This Day In Grateful Dead History. DL has been playing cuts from Winterland '73 on this past Friday, Saturday and today's installments. In his introduction, he has been making a point of saying what a great release this run of shows would be! In fact he has been exhorting the listeners to lobby the powers that be for this 9 disc release along the lines of the Fillmore West 1969 box.So, in that spirit~ PLEASE RELEASE A BOX SET OF THE 1973 WINTERLAND SHOWS!!!!! :^)

when will the good folks at wherever please create a pigpen anthology box set? a lot of us older heads would gobble it up like candy and the younger heads would have a new appreciation for the man who for many of us was the embodiment of what the dead was all about in the early days. i'm pretty sure Piggers and Jerry are knockin' out some great blues up in heaven. just a thought ....

had a few more thoughts for the ideal pigpen anthology. this would include a DVD biography with lots of interviews with the pig himself as well as others, rare behind the scenes images and film footage and some choice concert material of mr. pig at his best. also included would be a book with more bio stuff and pictures. and of couse several CDs of pigger's best performances. the dillon gym show from 70 would have to be included. this show had the "good lovin'" with the "buck & a quarter" rap as well as the "lovelight" where our friend plays matchmaker and pairs up guys and girls from the audience. also need would be the carousel show in 69 with him and janis. hope someone is interested in putting this together!
