Oh, and how about a DVD of the show in Copenhagen on the Europe 72 tour? I've read the entire concert exists in the vaults, but the band would have to work out a deal with the Danish TV people who shot the show for it to be released.
And one more thing, which again I'm sure is unlikely: the second set from Sept 11, 1974, Alexandra Palace, London. I know that three night run was covered in one of the Dick's Picks releases, but nothing from this amazing set has ever seen the light of day. It'd be nice if they could include the Phil And Ned portion of the show (which reminds me, how come so little has been released of Phil And Ned?! Is there some kind of rift between him and the band, or the recordings that exist not good enough quality to release?).
There was one show I had on cassette, which I unfortunately lost a couple years back. I'm not positive of the exact date, but I know it was from spring 73 (May, I think). The setlist was Weather Report Suite prelude->Dark Star->Eyes Of The World->Playin In The Band. I know this is really vague, but I'd sure like to have that on an official release.
Beyond that, I would want to see more stuff from summer 67-69. Anything that's got the side one songs from Anthem Of The Sun would be welcomed by me.
Also, I'd really love if someday the original mix of Aoxomoxoa and the remix of Anthem Of The Sun (the one I know from my 80's era copy of the album) could be released. I know that's unlikely to ever happen, but it would be cool if they could at least some day be offered as downloads or something.
the Foxboro show in 90 would make a fantasic release
I would love to have a DVD or CD of Brent Mydland's last show with the GD!!!
I dont know where or when it was but would surely buy at least 1 copy.
Hey Bro chek out the vineyard , you will find a very nice recording of the 8-27-72 show and you will find many more very good shows there .. Take care folks ,, Have a Grate weekend everyone !! Stu ....
Thanks for the heads up!
I don't have that one, but a few days later, 05/15/77 - good show, imho, but some fidelity issues with it -- just not perfect, and it is a soundboard. I'd love to grab a good audience recording somewhere, and I know I'd enjoy it, as I do with almost all of May `77 shows. Unforunately, I was not able to tour at that time, way back in the killer month of May `77.
8/27/72 wouldn't be the worst release, but there is an A SBD already circulating, so I would put other shows in front of it. To begin with, how about 5/12/77? I know you have it in the vault as you have streamed part of the second set in the Taper's Section. The fact that no SBD is in circulation should be reason enough, but if it isn't, the show is a keeper from a killer era.
