Anything from 1984 would be great to see as a release. I have recently made a chart of live releases and have noticed that 1984 has been totally ignored.
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
All that circulates is
Dark Star >
The sound (at least from the vernon source) is great, A if not A+. The Dark Star may be THE Dark Star. The Stephen and the bit of Mason's we have are great, too. If this board is in the vault, the sound quality is good and the rest of the show even approaches the level of what circulates, an official release is not only warranted, but necessary.
Come on!!!! How can this venue have been overlooked this long!!! There were some SMOKIN' shows (esp. 90 and 91) played there! PLEASE!!! I don't even mind a 3 show highlight collection!!!!!
i know that '72 is a well represented year and already own all the other '72 release, but since i heard to this show on Archivie, can't stop thinkin' about it!! Both set are outstanding, and u can Clearly listen to Bobby's guitar!!__and BTW understand his huge importance to the GD sound___,track selection is perfect and sound quality is already very high, i don't know if anybody ever requested this but just give it a hear,you won't be disappointed!!
I am looking into vining this entire tour. However the most efficient way to vine something this large is to use FLAC files on a DVD(s).

We just really want to see the Spring Tour 2009 on CDs, not only downloads...pretty please...Thanks!
How about Oxford Plains Speedway 7-2-88. One of the best from that year!

What about the Melkweg show from 1981-10-16? Were those recorded? I know they were quite spontaneous.
It's the only year (apart from some of the '80s and '90s) that isn't represented in any live release (apart from the odd song here and there). I know the sound quality might not be great, but surely a 2 disc compilation of key tracks from throughout the year would be feasible. It's a pretty crucial year to have so underrepresented. How did they develop from the garage-blues band of Birth of the Dead to the psychedelic sojourners of Two from the Vault?
Also, there doesn't seem to have been much (or anything?) from '70 released since DP8. Correct me if I'm wrong, I'm just going off the top of my head.
