05/12/77

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.

haha

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.

The "please release 8/27/72" petition

To: Grateful Dead

Whereas today, August 27, 2008, is the 36th anniversary of the classic Grateful Dead concert performed at the Old Renaissance Faire Grounds in Veneta, Oregon (a show popularly known as "Springfield Creamery Benefit" or "Field Trip");

Whereas multi-camera visual and multi-track audio recordings of said show are known to exist;

Whereas fans have circulated unofficial versions of the audio recordings and the video (popularly known as a move titled "Sunshine Daydream");

Whereas the Grateful Dead's business organization is involved in the commercial release of audio and visual material from its archive;

We, the undersigned fans, popularly known as "Dead Heads", petition the members of the Grateful Dead, their estates, business organization and representatives to release the recordings in their entirety, in deluxe packaging, in a manner that reflects the esteem with which this show is held in the fan community.

Thanks.

Sincerely,

The Undersigned

Woodstock!

It probably has been posted before, but I would like to see the Woodstock show 08/16/69 officially released. Perhaps the complete Saint Stephen is on the master reels.

Also;
08/27/72
and more from 1968

Where's Jerry solo at??

So with a wealth of new GD releases this year (big cheers!!) I'm wondering what happened to the solo Jerry stuff. There were a few good things going there. Pure Jerry? Great stuff. I noticed the Jerrygarcia.com website has not been updated for almost a year (Holiday cheer all year!) Anyone over this way know why the Jerry catalogue releases just stopped?

I'd love to see a 4 CD set of prime Mickey and The Hartbeats highlights from 1968.

1987/88

I don't think there has been any 87/88 releases except View from the vault4 . Time to fill in some gaps. One of my favorites from this era is 6-30-87 in Ontario Canada. The sound effects are all over this show, making for some real unique moments. I think a motorcycle was brought on stage during drums. Great Scarlet>Fire.
This period of the dead had lots of good energy. At least a Road Trips release!
