Re policy

As stuman noted, there are many show SBDs no longer streamable from Archive due to "commercial release." Okay, fair enough, when in fact the entire show HAS been "commercially released." What troubles me, though, is when entire shows get disabled when in reality only certain tracks from that show have been "commercially released." A good case in point is the Fillmore East run in April 71. Four CDs of this five show run were released entitled Ladies and Gentlemen, The Grateful Dead. This is a release that I am happy to have, didn't think twice about paying for, and consider it well worth owning a copy of. However, most of the material from these shows is NOT on those CDs. Still, none of the SBDs from these shows are streamable.

Since Archive only offers SBDs via MP3 stream, and streams tracks instead of shows, can't the suppression (repression?) of "commercially released" material be limited to only those tracks which actually ARE "commercially released?" I would gladly suffer a little "setlist interruptus" if it meant that we could actually listen to the rest of the performances.

As I understand it, Archive's accessibility policy is driven by artist (or more correctly, IP owner's) dictate. So how about it, boys? Free the "unreleased" material!

Conversation is always more interesting than recitation, so speak your mind and not someone else's.

1-22-78 can be streamed

this show is available for streaming from the archive site.
not to offend anyone , but if we keep posting what releases we want to se,
then Rhino will eventually completley take it away , that means no streams at all ....

i don`t think anyone would like that ..
just like the 73 winterland run .. can`t stream that one at all....

Dicks picks is done

After the start of Road Trips Rhino officially announced that Dick's picks as a series is over... so don't be waiting for that #37 to come out any time soon. But if they can revive from the Vault series 18 years later we may not see the end of Dick's picks after all. My vote for a release single show would be 1-22-78. AWESOME. And Dick has commented on how much he loved that show. Don';t want to wait 18 years though. I might be dead.

One of the hottest shows from a very good year: 6-4-77!

This one exists only as a somewhat skeevy AUD. The setlist is primo and the playing is superb!

There's already a lot available offically from 1977, of course. But that should not deter Rhino from releasing this excellent show.

Thanks for asking for requests. I remember Dick Latvala (RIP) sending a card out with one of the early DP's, requesting shows.

Stanford 82

The show from Frost Ampitheatre of October 10th, 1982 is a deadhead dream show.

The entire week of April 1971 at the Fillmore..

Ladies & Gentleman, the Grateful Dead was not enough.

We should get the entire week the dead played, from April 25 to April 29th, 1971. With special guests each night like the Beach Boys, Allman Bros, TC, that entire week shoud come out as a mini box set.

Pretty please =)

Then, the last night of the 1973 tour at the Boston Garden. Three sets of pure heaven.
