I apologize as Sunshine Daydream's been requested to death, but I must concur.
I've just read on another forum that it's not the breasts or drugs that "someone" found offensive, but "that naked guy on the pole". First of all, I've always thought he was wearing shorts, lest he get splinters in a very awkward place.
The guy on the pole was one of the most striking things in the film, in my humble opinion. Seeing Jerry in THE ZONE while this miniature dervish squirms on his shoulder to the cozmik sounds is SO surreal, and coupled with the lurid colors of the film, strongly reminds me of an Italian "mythology" movie. BY ZEUS, KEEP HIM IN!! (and release the film while you're at it!!)
Yeah kkeyser27!! I agree 100%. Hampton 89 is on the top of my list. I was so close to being at those shows it kills me. I was at some Housing rally in DC the day before (Jefferson Airplane played, Stevie Wonder, and i think Mikey was there). People were talking about the "Warlocks" show but unfortunately i was in school and responsibleness prevailed. What a fool. Amazing shows. i drool about thinking of hearing them in hi-def surround sound. Please!! "Music is the best" - FZ
I still can't believe these shows have not been released on DVD and/or CDs... quite possibly the best Dead shows of the late '80's and 90's! I have seen low-fi clips from the shows on youtube, but I know there must have been some professional recording going on. Highlights: Jerry playing Wolf for the first time in forever, The first Help>Slip>Franklins in years, the first Dark Star in years, We bid you goodnight, Attics of my Life, etc etc! This would be a great latter- years DVD.
And I will throw my hat in the ring for any videos from the 70's! Festival Express really was fantastic to see... what a great movie. More more more! Too much of everything just ain't enough!
Would love to see some Video from Summer 93' Shoreline had some great stuff a truly Epic Half-Step, Supplication, Brown_eyed Women and Stagger really cook. Cal Expo has plenty of stellar material, Buckeye's Jack Straw-Foolish Heart and an incredible post Drums sequence would make an excellent release. Kentucky was as good as it gets although it was indoors so video might not be available. Any of the three shows at Deer Creek would make a fine release. I think 1993 represents the bands finest output post Brent. The time off really seemed to help the band especially Jerry. Some of his best guitar work since the early eighties by far. No video or CD relase covers this brief yet powerful resurgence.
How about a documentary in the style of Festival Express based on the Europe 72 tour. Lots of live footage included in the feature movie with an extra disc of bonus live stuff. This would be awesome. "Music is the best" - FZ
I will keep posting for DVD's til my fingers turn blue...its been wayyyyyy to long. After Hampton 89 my next pick would be Deer Creek 89. Very possible as i know screens were running for that show. And oh what a show. So today i ask again. DVDs please! GD surround sound is so sweet. Jerry's nose hairs must be seen to be believed!

Like bud plants said... Is it possible hampton 89 warlocks could exist as a DVD? I would love to hear surround sound of those shows. But anything at this point. Please, anything. I too will trade american dollars (maybe not worth that much after all) for DVD. "Music is the best" - FZ
I have purchased every official video release from GDM. All of these I have purchased again when they were re-released in the DVD format. So what I'm saying is that if you release video, ANY video, I will buy it. I promise, on this you can rely. Why have there been NO videos released since View From the Vault 4? Don't you want our money? Here's the deal: You offer videos for sale- I will buy them. You give me videos, I give you American dollars. Does that sound fair to you? By the way, do you realize it's been OVER five (5) years since VFTV4? Did you guys just space on putting out the videos? Sometimes I space out on doing stuff. Maybe if you tie a bow around your little finger, it would remind you to put out a few videos. So right now as soon as I post this, I'm heading out to get a big chunk of dough to give to you!!! All ya gotta do is drop a couple of videos... I know you can do it. Just try it, we'll all be so happy, it will be like the Forth of July!! Thank you for your co-operation in this matter. Sincerely yours, Bud Plant
The 1976 New Years Eve concert on dvd would be fantastic!!!!
I'm simply looking for a link to a site that has a good chronological list of what shows are known pro-shots. Thank you. If this is something that needs to be PM's and not posted, I'll appreciate it.
