Euro '72 box

A one sentence request here:

A re-mastered and complete, uncut box of the Europe 72 tour (no cuts, every show!)

'Nuff said.

Just a thought

Maybe something like postcards(dylan covers) have something with all the beatles covers done. Or rare covers.

correction to prior post

I mis-stated the names of the songs played on 3 of the 4 Swing Auditorium shows: the actual song names with 3 plays were: Promised Land, Tennessee Jed, and Drums. Playing in the Band is only in 2 shows.

Swing Auditorium

I'd love to see a box set comprised of the four shows that they played at the San Bernardino Swing Auditorium (1969, 1977, 1978, 1980). Call it "Swing Sets," or something like that--all good shows, including two shows that kicked off new tours (77 & 78), but the biggest thing is that, of the total 71 songs, there are 51 different tunes, with only one (Mama Tried) being in all four shows, and only three others (Promised Land, Playing In The Band, and, of course, Drums) with three performances each, and eleven songs played in two different shows. 78 includes the first performances of Terrapin Station and Estimated Prophet, 79 features an all-Bobby vocals 2nd set (with Jerry concentrating on his guitar), and the passion of He's Gone in the 80 show, just days after John Lennon was murdered, is quite possibly the best-ever rendition of that song. This box would also include Pigpen (69), Keith & Donna (77 & 78), and Brent (80), making it a nice "first half" retrospective collection, too. Size-wise, it would fit on 10 CDs (the 69 and 78 shows are both short enough for 2 discs, while the 77 & 80 shows would take 3 each).

pigpen

this isnt really a box set but it didnt fit the other categories i heard that pigpen was working on an album before he died if any of those songs were completed they should release them or have someone record then release them just my opinion

Greek Theater, Berkeley box set

I would absolutely LOVE to see a box set released from the Berkeley Greek Theater shows, especially 1981 (the first run there & fabulous!), 1985 (20th anniversary) & 1989 (the last run there).

Loveya,

Jolie

And how incredibly wonderful

And how incredibly wonderful that we can talk about the "eras" of this band.
Hoping they round out each era with a complete run box set. Maybe every four years, we have 69,73, now for 77,then 81,85,89,93.....
just a thought...
