I've asked some people

I've asked some people here supposedly employed by Rhino about the next video release. I never received a reply, (on either letter). Not even the courtesy of referring it to the "proper department"... Go figure...

View from the Vault

I miss the view from the vault series. If they could revive "From the Vault" why not View? My vote for next one would be 6-17-91. Just watched a you tube version of the eyes opener. Great stuff. One View release a year would do just fine (with additional DVD releases like Sunshine Daydream). The cd releases are hitting a real nice stride. Lets get some visuals too!!

sunshine daydream, 1989

Yes, the sunshine daydream is way over due for release. the big complaint when I first got my release on DVD (bootleg) from the inside the circle was the kesey camp didn't want everybody to have it becuase they thought it would compete with a official release.....this was about 3 years ago or so....well, everyday that goes by without a release it's losing ground for legit copies to be sold....

oh, did I say, it's a piece of rock and roll history that should be released....I can think of maybe some material that wouldn't be suitable with all the nudity, but a disclaimer will take care of that, and possibly stir up even more publicity upon release so more copies could be sold.....

I've also heard that birdsong was filmed or at least parts of it , and 2 other songs as well....that might acct. for the extra material....

as for 1989 , yes 7-7-89 is a very well played show that should meet in any requirement for legit release in my opinion....very , very well played , one of the best played shows ever....yes, don't let the set lists fool you all the time....the scarlet>fire is on fire, and the blow away set closer is very hot.....the whole show rocks very , very hard....this is a good one with high level of energy and alot of right notes

I admit

I could do without the naked guy, who a)kinda grosses me out (whereas the other nudity does not) and b)seems to me so out of it that he's oblivious to the splinters and probably got quite the painful surprise when the drugz wore off.

But I'll just avert my eyes. Release the darn show!

dervish on a stick

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!!)

Agreed Hampton 89!

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!!

Hampton "Warlocks" shows from 10/8/89 and 10/9/89

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!

DVD

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.

Europe 72!

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.

DVDs please

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!
