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
I have a copie of Sunshine Daydream. I watched it just a few days ago on my day off. I had a 8/27/72 revisited day if you will. Early in the day I was at the local record store and they had the Vaneta 8/27/72 New Riders set on cd for sale. So I bought the cd and this triggered me to dust off my burnt copy of Sunshine Daydream(that only plays in one of my dvd players?) and I made an afternoon of it. Listened to the NRPS cd first, Im pretty sure its their whole set stage announcements and all. Then I popped in the Sunshine Daydream dvd. It was a pretty good afternoon. The Vaneta footage is great there is also just a few minutes of very early dead at the beginning. This being said I do hope they release sunshine daydream I would defenately buy an official release, I like getting sets and nice packaging I also enjoy extra pictures and essays and good quality sound thats why I will always buy a new release even if its a show I have on tape or something. PLEASE RELEASE SUNSHINE DAYDREAM!!!!
I also just read something about the bickersaw festival from england 72 being broadcast on tv that would be a good dvd release.
Woke up this morning and oddly remember seeing this live on the USA network all those years ago. It was also a FM radio simulcast in my area (CT) and a good one at that. There were interviews w/ Bob & Mickey inbetween sets with Father Guido Sarducci. It was set up alot like the 78-79 broadcast (no Bill G. flying in on a giant joint though), and I think it would make a fine DVD release. After "Sunshine Daydream" this would definitely be my next choice. Any of you out there who remember this broadcast or even just heard the show and liked it, post your requests. Maybe we'll see it get released sometime soon. Love to all, Patrick
Saw a decent copy of Sunshine Daydream once, been waiting for it to come out on video ever since. I was told the many bare breasted camera shots have been one of the reasons for it's not being released. I find this a little hard to believe, being that the show is so good and footage from that era is quite rare. Hoping it's gets a legit release soon. Patrick
How about So Far, Backstage Pass and the making of Touch of Grey?
Also the Summer Solstace '89 pay per view broadcast in it's entirety including the pre show and intermission footage.
just start releasing them more often. i'll take whatever. only got to see 1 show live! i'm an official release whore. brent fan, if we're getting down to the nitty gritty but any dvd is worth it to me, since i think seeing them adds to the experience of trying to relive these shows. egypt would be cool....multiple discs with as much of the wandering around exploring egypt footage as possible (bill walton with crutches exploring the pyramids, that weird guy inside that tomb making music of sorts, billy by the pool talking about there being a craft inside the pyramids, the flag being planted on the top, etc.) obviously. i know the piano wz out of tune and the drums were minus an arm, but from the little i've seen jerry rips it and they're having a blast. sunshine daydream is the ultimate "duh". guy with boner and all, you'd sell tons! anyway, just release whatever you want, but do it more quickly and regularly please.
