Please release ALL of the alpine valley '89 video before I drop dead!
Some great shows there 1990 thru 1994. Or buckeye lake in central ohio.
The Ark 69, Fox 72 boxes are fine ideas. I still think a box from 10/21/73 - 11/1/73 would great. That would allow them to do 12/18 as a single show release, or possibly 12/8, 12/12, and 12/18 as a small box someday.
I am surprised to hear that the Vault has multitracks of 7/18/76. I am wondering what other multitracks are in there. 12/31/72 maybe? 10/6/77? Fall '89 of course, but not sure what they could do with that, given what has already been released.
I second the request.
I would love to have an official release of The Ark shows, 21, 22, 23 April 1969 box set.
I would be "thrilled" to see any of the above box set come out.
My favorite box sets are both Winterlands. 3 shows, 9 discs. About $100 each. When box sets get too big, they get too expensive. Just my opinion. But I'd love a 3 day box from an important venue. Pick a Red Rocks 3 day run, or a Greek. Alpine 89 was 3 days. Put that out with video, too! Saratoga was always 1 show. Merriweather Post always 2. Now Saratoga from like 83, 83, & 85 might be interesting, but I'd like the 3 days in a row....
How about some of those epic CNY or Mardi Gras from the 80's?
Mine is the same as the 7-5 second set, is this right?
I'd love to see a box set of all the covers. That is a monumental task with all the artistic rights and stuff. I have not spent any money on the grateful dead's new releases, it's all the same to me, I couldn't tell you musically what the the differnces are between one release of a song and another except for song length. But one thing I do know is that the covers they do are just about perfect for them. Listen to "Tomorrow is Forever" and other prison ballads, all the Dylan songs, Bobby's cowboy songs, Haggard, Cash covers, the writer of El Paso. They do a really good job of arrangeing old traditional songs too. Garcia's cover on his albums should be included too. I'm sure there is enough in the vault to get eight or nine disc?!
