07-07-89 JFK video release!/sunshine daydream

Hi Y'all,

I think there has been talk about the JFK 1989 show slated for video release. According to Lemiux there are some decent video source available with multi-cam similar to "truckin up to buffalo" release. However, the performance of this JFK show is stellar. It would be a shame and debacle not to release this show in it's complete version. Please, no more partial compilations, not very many hardcore fans want thier GD to be a "greatest hits" for their (dreaded) iPod. It makes sense to release this show , the quality is there, and the performance is there, and the set list is there. Unlike the buffalo show where the band does play well, but almost restrained and the setlist is average in my opinion.

As for sunshine daydream...I've givin up on it, and resort to my bootleg version which is OK. Evidently, the royality and production rights must be a issue between the filmaker, kesey camp, and the GD org. Also, I don't know if the naked pics and streaking fans with obvious children depicted at the event might be a connotation the GDP doesn't want to indirectly promote, and I can't blame them. To avoid such PR issues it would be prudent to offer this show for a download video release. I'm sure the GD could work this out;however, I don't know what camp is stalling for the release but suffice to say that all major collectors already have a decent quality version. I've heard there is more footage that has been found and remastered for the slated release of this film. It is classic and should be released in some capacity before the market is dried up on the secondary market and trade groups.

I give up...

I know i've been saying this for a while...and right around now seems like a DVD might just emerge...I want something that is not already widely or has been widely circulated (read Sunshine Daydream). ANYTHING!! Please??

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!
