"From day to day, just lettin' it ride,
You get so far away from how it feels inside,
You can't let go, 'cause you're afraid to fall,
But the day may come when you can't feel at all."
...shall we go, you and I while we can...
Two problems. One, Dylan wasn't satisfied with the shows himself, so he's disinclined to release the performance. That's why it wasn't on the VFTV release. Two, Jerry was very protective of those videos. After the show, he had a designated person bring him the video master, which he would put in his briefcase before leaving the venue. There probably aren't too many of these in the vault, although David Lemeiux would know. I thought some of them might turn up for the recent auction of the contents of his home, but didn't. So maybe the guy who bought his house or, more likely, Deborah Koontz, has them.
I was at the D/D in Anaheim and most of it was released in the Vault Video with the Oakland show but I would love to see the footage from the Dylan set and the encores... I agree with HighVibe on the late 80s and early 90s shows. Many of the shows I was at had the screens i.e. Shoreline etc... So there has to be Video out there waiting to be released! - Eric
C'mon..... ya know ya want it!
I know I do!!!!! :-D
The whole show had huge video screens going so you know that the cameras and footage are there!
Would also like to see something, possibly a montage of some restored footage from the early to mid 70's. I am guessing there is a ton of footage out there with great audio to match it with. It doesn't matter if the whole show is not there, etc.... It would be great to just start getting that stuff out there. I feel it has been long over due and I was expecting (now that it is 12 years since Jerry is gone) that more video footage would be out there!
Other requests would be:
Silver Stadium 6/30/88
Anything from Europe 1990
Oakland 10/31/91 - Bill's goodbye show
Oakland 10/31/92 - Jerry Garcia Band - Jerry's 1st show back after his coma
Any 199?'s show from Las Vegas - The Silver Bowl (what a magical place!).
Shoreline 6/2/95 - the last west coast shows and the Gyoto monks - WOW!
Praying for that miracle video!
