Palace theater Waterbury 9/24/72

Just listened to this show - streaming on the internet - boy, I´d love to have it on CD. Even though I´m a ´1969-man I´d say that this show is outstanding: crisp playing - MONSTER dark star!!!!!

I play mostly basses in swedish jazz-jamband MOVIO...but occasionally fiddle and cornet, too. visit www.movio.se for more info! thanx!

Oxford Plains Speedway

I agree that summer of '88 was great. Particularly Oxford Plains Speedway on 7-2-88 to end the summer tour. I would love to see this as an official release.

Jolie!

Haven't seen you since just about those shows! How are you?

And, of course, yes it would be nice to have that run!

Whatever happened to...

... the shows from the Greek Theater in Berkeley on 9/11, 9/12 & 9/13/81? This was a fantastic run!

Loveya,

Jolie

Summer 88

Down Hill from Here is actually summer 89. So there is absolutely NO cd or DVD release for this time period. Ummm... whats up with that?? My first years of collecting tapes was during this year. I remember alot of great shows. I know they don't hold up to old school stuff from the 70's or even fall 89-summer 90. But common. Deserves some kind of release. How bout a Road Trips summer 88??

Summer '71?

Tongue firmly in cheek here, but how about a compilation of some of the mid-1971 material NOT featured on Dick's Picks 35?

A hypothetical tracklisting:

Disc 1 to feature the Playing>Dark Star>Bird Song sequence from Yale Bowl, the NFA sequence from that show, plus a few other bit & pieces. Disc 2 to be highlights of 8/23/71, including TOO from 8/23/71, plus maybe a bonus disc featuring highlights from 8/6/71 Set 1 and nuggets from the uncirculating show on 8/4/71??

Sound like a good idea...? ;-)

summer of 88

I was tired of my CDs one recent afternoon and decided to dig through the boxes of tapes in the closet for something 'new' to listen to. By chance, one of the shows I pulled out was SPAC, 6-28-88. Holy Crow! This led me to a rediscovery of the wonderful summer shows of 1988, which I believe are presently only represented by the Downhill From Here DVD (which is great). How about a release from this tour? Jerry was ON, and Bobby was extremely worked up, hell all the fellas were at full throttle. If not 6-28, I'd nominate 7-17 from the Greek.

Hey Trovahead

Checkout the Vineyard, there is a vine of 9-20-70 that is pretty tasty. Jump in the vine is fine.

9/20/70

Best acoustic set ever, hands down plus a face melting electric set.
I don't know if there is a copy of this in the vault however. I heard that a better version than what commonly circulates was played on Sirus. Does anyone know if this is true?
