Love each of those shows - wouldn't hesitate to buy that box. But I'd have to go with something a little tamer than the sheet of acid.
" Where does the time go? "
How about a dirty Jersey "not for the feint of heart" box set?
All four shows from Roosevelt Stadium in Jersey City-
'72, '73, '74, and '76
Encased in riveted steel with a sheet of acid.
Raw power indeed...
Wow... let me catch my breath... LOL
Throw in the video from '76. If the 2nd set turns up on video I'd really be impressed!
Please release more complete shows that already circulate as A SBD's! Forget about 2/2/69, 2/12/69, 4/22/69, 9/9/72, 9/15/72, 9/16/72, 9/19/72, 2/19/73, 9/15/73, 9/24/73, 11/1/73, 11/28/73, 2/27/77, any of the late April/early May 77 NJ and NY shows, 5/12/77 and 6/4/77 (shows off the top of my head that don't circulate as complete A SBD shows). Give us more stuff that we already have, albeit in slightly better sound quality (A+ rather than A). And please, since we are all making a lot more money and working a lot more than we did 5 yrs ago, when the Fillmore West box set was released for the same price, albeit with 4 more discs, charge us as much as you can. Thanks!
Need I say more?!? C'mon folks, listen to these shows!! I know they already released the DVD Downhill from Here from one of these shows, but we need the other two!!!
I'd love to have this one and I guess I am not alone. I've joined the comunity too late to buy it first time around, and the prices on Amazon are way above what I'd spend.
I really hope some one will consider a re-issue of that box for all of us who missed it.
Including all limited production runs and "bonus" cds. Yeah, it would be expensive, but it would be good to put in a time capsule or some such...
How About a New Years Run or two from Oakland! There were some great shows played there, and who knows maybe you can come up with a DVD from the many great archived shots that were taken during the 80's (when they had the cinemetographer)?
Will you come with me? Once in awhile you can get shown the light in the strangest of places if you look at it right!
Id love to get copies of this. Vegas 92 with the Steve Miller Band would be great too.

I think it would be awesome if a series of Cds featuring the first live performances of our favorite dead songs was released. Such as the first live performance of sugar magnolia or estimated prophet. The first sugar mag is slower, very rough and slightly out of tune at some points but it is definatly a gem and I'm sure the other first performances are precious as well.
As I come the UK how about a Boxset containing all the shows The Band played in the UK thought the 70's,I would buy that in a heartbeat!
