Our friends the Rhinos have various and sundry new releases in the development process, but they're always interested in hearing what you'd like to see hit the virtual shelves of the Store. No promises, but you never know...

This topic is for requesting new individual shows. There are also topics for box sets and DVDs.

If you've already requested something in the previous Requests topic, you don't really need to request it again, but hey, if you just can't help yourself...

well, I do love that show. It's really short, but that moment when they break into UJB and the crowd goes nuts rarely fails to bring tears to my eyes.

I played that tape so much I sang the guitar parts to myself.

Red Rocks Box

I'll put in a plug for the July '78 shows, as well as the Aug. 12, '79 Red Rocks and Aug 13, '79 at McNichols. Might as well mine the 'early' years at Red Rocks first, before dipping into the 1980s. The July 1981 shows at McNichols might worthy of exploring, too, but I'm "Dead sure" of the '78 and '79 shows.

Thanks for listening to our requests.

Shows, I need a few...

I'm not sure if any of the following are unavailable (even as DLs on the Archive) because they've been released already or if plans are being made to release them, officially, or what. (I'm aware I can stream them.)

3/13/71 - Michigan St. Univ. (in the Vault, I think)
3/14/82 - Cal-Davis
5/6/89 - Frost
6/1/91 - LA Coliseum
3/17/94 - Rosemont
6/14/94 - Memorial Stadium in Seattle
2/20/95 - Delta Center, SLC

Then there are those for which there is a circulating copy (reportedly), but they're not on Archive in any format:

7/9/70 - Fillmore East (supposed to be on a 7/11/70 AUD master)
6/27/70 - Toronto
5/21/68 - Carousel (aka Tuesday Night Jam)
5/3/68 - Columbia U (supposedly in the film Columbia Revolt)
12/31/66 - Fillmore Aud
10/31/66 - California Hall (Dance of Death Costume Ball - SBD is supposedly not Dead)
9/11/66 - Fillmore Aud (some tapes that are labeled 9/11 are actually 9/16 or 8/7)
3/19/66 - Carthay Studios, LA (confused with 3/12 often in tapes/setlists)
1/7/66 - Matrix (show may not have occurred)

2/24/74

I just had the opportunity to listen to the entire Feb. 74 Winterland run. As someone mentioned in one of the more frequented threads, the magic tends to happen on Sunday. The mixes are rather spotty on the 2/22 and 2/23 shows. Jerry is way too low in the mix and Keith is out way front, which is not necessarily a terrible thing as Keith is on top of his game here. That said, I would not be terribly disappointed to see simply a solo release of 2/24 (with highlights from 2/22 and 2/23 of course) and not box set treatment. This opinion is subject to change. (weasel words, I know)

10/29/77 and 10/27/79

A simple permutation will get you another show I'd love to see (and think will eventually be) released. Suspiciously, neither of these shows were tapped for RT 1.1 or RT 1.2 keeping them whole and thus candidates for full show releases. Of course the caveats, if they are both in the vault and don't have glaring technical issues. I was weaned on 10/27/79, it was one of the first tapes I had. I listened to the first set yesterday and the first half of the second set today.

2/20/95

Anyone know why the 2/20/95 at the Delta Center in SLC is available streaming only? There really isn't an AUD of this floating around? Seems like there might be more to the story... (It's the only show from 95 I don't have yet, so even if it stinks on ice I'd like it!)

Good call, indeed, jch (and WTJ)! Over the last few years, on at least 2 occasions, I've cleared my ipod and started from scratch - almost; two shows have endured: 2/26 and 5/14/78. That isn't to say that they are my favorites, but they certainly make my top X list each and every time, and for some reason I find each indispensable!

Plus, there are magnificent (downloadable) SBDs for both shows (hint: mediafire). WTJ, in a concurrent window I've just located a zipped SBD for 10/29, as well as 10/30...which, along with the soon to be rereleased Englishtown (epic), DiP 10 (legendary), the 5 hidden trax from 10/11/77 on DiP 29 (discs 2 & 5), DiP 34, and RT 1.2, make for a respectable Fall/Winter '77 catalogue, thanks!/kate

I don't know why or how this show has been overlooked for so long. Check out the use of slide by Jerry on Black Peter! An absolute smoker from beginning (Might as Well) to end. (One More Saturday Night)

Want a soundboard copy of...

4/19/83.

heard it on Sirius the date of the show this year, and it is a totally wild and great set. The audience tapes do not capture it.
