" Where does the time go? "
I watched Garcia/Khan/Vitt (Who else?) at the Great American Music Hall. I think it was in 1974. I'd like that moment in time to listen to.
I'm about to order the JGB at the Warner CDs (I was there) and was hoping the Robert Hunter & Comfort sets that opened those shows would be included, but alas... (I have it on tape, but still...)
I was a big fan of that era of Hunter's. I saw Comfort maybe a half-dozen times (didn't they have a single? a cover of "Wild Night", maybe?) and was disappointed when Hunter stopped performing with a band.
The Dinosaurs opened for the Dead on a couple (at least) occasions '82-ish at the then-Oakland Auditorium, so the tapes are there, if anyone wants to transcribe them.
I am asking the community to help me find a show from '87.It was July 2nd at silver stadium in Rochester,NY.my dad had died in a plane crash on June 28th and when they played He's gone I remember feeling like i was with my family in that crowd.like the band actually knew,as stupid as that sounds.any help is appreciated.Peace.
I'd like to see an emphasis on shows that don't already circulate in high quality. For starters, let's hear the tremendously underrated Hartford show from 8/2/76.
I made an online petition to Rhino Records in hopes that they will release a show from 1984. Feel free to copy and paste this in other forums or blogs.
Initial studies have concluded that repeated exposure to Grateful Dead music may be habit forming, and can result in a permanent change to the psyche of the listener. While no one has successfully reversed this condition, it can sometimes be controlled to
Good call, dogstarz! '84 has been overlooked for too long..... Time for Big Broth-- err, I mean Rhino to show some recognition!
