I was just channel surfing when I came across a documentary about 70's music ("Have A Nice Decade") on VH1 Classic, and they mention The Allman Brothers and show some old live footage, I take a second to look and see if it's with Duane, and it was! Then after a few seconds on the bottom of the screen it says "Fillmore East 1970" (!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!). The reason I bring this up here is, didn't The Dead play with the Allmans at the Fillmore (I'm asking sarcasticly) maybe a couple of nights in February (I'm still being sarcastic). And if the cameras were rolling for The Allmans there's no reason to think they weren't rolling for The Dead, which means there's profesionaly done footage of The Dead at the Fillmore East in 1970. And to support this theory I'd like to bring up a video I've recently downloaded of Frank Zappa With John And Yoko sitting in, at the Fillmore East June 6 1971, that looks just the same as what was on VH1.
So there's probrably all this great footage sitting somewhere. WHAT ARE THESE PEOPLE WAITING FOR!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?! THEY ARE SITTING ON A FORTUNE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm not one of these putz's that think this should all be free and I think most people feel the same way. The people who own this footage have a nation of dead heads drooling to get this stuff, to pay like they would for any other live music DVD from any band they way we pay for the "View From The Vault" releases, The Dead Movie,and so on.
I don't know if the Rhino people or anyone in that decision making proccess look at what's written here. But if they do I think I speak for a NATION of Dead Heads when I ask "What Are You Waiting For"?!?!Check Out My Orignal Music at myspace.com/salaversano
Anyone have a set list for that. DVD's are so cool! Reliving the show is awesome, so any would do!!!!!
''Whatever it is 60's,70's,80's,90's,''I don't mind witch,I LOVE IT ALL''.Put two shows on the DVD, like what they did on, VIEW from the VAULT 4. Or how about 6 shows on 2or3 discs. That's not asking to much is it. ''PEACE my Sisters & Brothers''. ''''''''''''Long Live JERRY'''''''''''
I would LOVE to see the closing week at Fillmore West show (7/2/71). The movie 'Last days at the Fillmore' showed 2 songs, Casey jones and Johnny B. Good, but they must've filmed the whole show. I hear the band felt they didn't play their best that show. SO!!! I still want to see it.
hey any of the cal expo shows from 1990 or the autzen shows would be amazing
I would love a pro quality DVD release of the Grateful Dead on European TV from the Europe 72 tour, like the TV From The Tivoli and the Beat Club broadcasts. Anything with Pigpen would be great too, maybe a bonus DVD of the Dead being fronted by Pigpen.
A big 10-4 on an official release of Sunshine Daydream. It would be the very next thing I'd buy.
Two classics that were aired on cable
Gotta luv 72
the video (co directed by jerry?), has some unique footage of the band and footage of "conceptual" nature, and even parts of it are without an audience/ spliced together with shows with an audience. What's not to love? why do i need another feed from the jumbotron cameras, when we could have THIS video, that people worked so hard on. i can't believe that SO FAR is not the most talked about, here. but i hope my voice is heard. peace
