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...
Anyone else enjoy spending time trying to find all 100 songs embedded in the classic black and white poster? I'm normally a complete show listener, but had a change of heart when I heard some of the gems on the Road Trips series and began listening to random selections on the Sirius Channel on my daily commute. Perhaps a box set that features quality versions of the 100 songs from shows that are not slated for full release would be interesting.
Not sure if anybody else has suggested it yet, but I'd love to see a box set (or 2, or 3, or . . .) from a run of shows at the Greek Theater. There are so many great runs to choose from! '83, '84, '85 and '89, just off the top of my head, all featured some seriously great shows. It's kind of bizarre that *none* of these have ever been released.
The Capital Theatre in Passaic NJ was home to some truly incredible shows over the years, from '76-1980. Almost all of these shows were filmed with three camera set ups in their entirety. This Complete Box set would not only represent the stages the Dead went through musically and otherwise over those years, but it would allow millions to SEE and hear the band perform from an era many Dead Heads were simply not around to see themselves; an era many consider the Dead's peak. It's an amazing thing to hear the music, it's another thing to see Jerry break into a large grin and slam on his guitar with a passion that is felt not just in the music, but in the movement and expressions of the performers.
While some of these videos are available online, most are in need of restoration and suffer greatly in the audio department. To finally salvage these videos and add a Norman sound mix to these images would bring the Dead - and this era - alive in a way that we have never seen before.
Comment #28 asked about Alaska 1980. I second that One. Also How about a set from other shows around the release of Althea 1979, 1980 and 1981. Also the Dead covers from Beatles , Dylan , The Who and everyone else in between.
How about everything that can be put together from the Jan/Feb northwest tour. Ya I know, more NW shows right. But these shows smoke! Throw in Betty Nelson's organic raspberry farm show (9-2-68) as well. If possible - add the old bootleg LP "Mountains Of The Moon", a trippy LP of mostly Aoxomoxoa outtakes.
Thank You B.
