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...

Would be wonderful in exceptional quality. Pacific Northwest Box is my favorite - exceptional shows and audio quality.

94 and 95 were included in 30 Trips.
Some people broke up the box and sold the shows individually. Supposedly the late 90’s were the worst sellers.
So, you may be able to find those shows on eBay or elsewhere for a good price.

But, what about Gainesville?

Later Show

I wish they would release a few shows from 94/95. At the very least a 3 disc compilation from the last year of the band.

criteria for releases

Seems like it should fall around the following:

1. Is there a complete, high-quality version in the vault?
2. Does the show already circulate in high quality?
3. Was there something exceptional about the show compared to others in the same time period?
4. Has this time period already been well represented in the stream of releases, or is it lacking? Certainly some time periods will merit a larger number of releases.
5. From a sales standpoint, is there a perceived desire for a particular release? This one gets rather subjective.

Either 88 or 89 would be fine with me.
I personally only saw 6 or 8 shows in the 80s. All were really good except Minneapolis 1986 in metrodome.

PS..interesting analysis in your link. Marketers might say the 70s are over penetrated, economists might just point to demand-driven availability.

Unheard shows

I'd really be curious to know if there's anything left in the Vault that isn't available - even in low quality - online (legally). Are there hidden shows from '66, for instance? Or do we basically know all that was recorded and are now waiting for official releases so that we get high(er) quality versions of shows we may already own?

1978 Road Trips style releases

For Jan. '78, Nov. and Dec '78. All contain segments of quite fantastic and unique playing. See: 1-13-78 Dancin' thru Wharf Rat, 1-15-78 Terrapin>Playing in the Band. I have to delve deeper into November, but Dave has played cool examples on JOTW and Taper's (11-18). As for December, I really like the run from 12-12 thru 12-19. Not sure what kind of board sources exist for some of these tapes, as 1-15 and 12-16 I have only seen as audience tapes I think.
