6/5/69, 3/14/81

6/5/69, the show Dark Star from day 2 of the 30 day thing is taken from, is just about a no-brainer. And 3/14/81 (Althea day 3) doesn't even circulate on SBD!

There's a reason David Gans has played a lot of this show on the Dead Head Hour, it's great! I strongly believe that any '84 release should contain a "Help > Slip > Franklin's" since that is representative (as a "West L.A. Fadeaway" would be representative of 1983... hint, and perhaps an "Esau", also!).

Look, 1984 is due to come up in the rotation at some point, right? Marin Vet's is OK (nice, even), but that has been around for a long time in very good quality, and it doesn't have the sizzle that this show has!!! This one's a keeper! I guarantee there will lots of praise for this representing '84! It's one of the best of the year, undoubtedly.

Thanks! Tip o' the skull to ya! Plus, there should be lots of East Coasters and D.C. Heads that will pick this up, and many people who followed that tour! "Help > Slip > Franklin's" ALWAYS draws an audience, and that Set II is off the hook (as is the "Let It Grow", one of the funkiest and most ripping versions of the 80s! Listen to it!!!). A great "Brent show", also! Peace.

Rockpalast in Essen, Germany 3-28-81

Why don't you release sth. from outside the US??? The "Rockpalast" show was incredible... the boys on foreign ground following The Who... and they did it well, folks! You could call the set list average, but... Sugaree, Shakedown, Deal, Estimated > He's gone > into a rare pre-drums O1 which ends screaming in hyperspace are worth to be officially released!! Everything after drumz is with Pete Townsend and the boys really take off during the 2nd set! No vocal glitches, no mistakes make this a very fine show...!

a grateful dead video game?

It might be the last remaining audio visual frontier they have yet to explore. They could intersperse concert footage and base it on several timelines of interesting events. I'd like to see a computer game released.

8/5/79 Oakland Aud. Arena

The matrix of this show was done very carefully and there deserves to be follow-up from the Rhino side and a release of this one in it's entirety similar to Nightfall of Diamonds.

Note: This was a two encore show. Bertha>Good Lovin' the first encore and JBG the second.

Hey Crispy - You mean 90 or a Garden show?

There is no Foxboro 91. The last time they played there was 90. Are you mistaking for one of the Garden show run in Boston that year?

why don't they...

...come up with a fun project where they give us a few shows to choose from and we make the choice. For example, they stipulate A. they will put out a new road trips release B. they will be comprised from a given set of shows and C. we get to choose it. This would be nice for a change and a diversion from the 'ol 'guess what's comin' next?' I would be so into this. What do you think?
I would hope the choices would be something like: Choose your top 3 from:
anchorage '80
augusta '84
greek '82
red rocks '82
texas '81
laguna seca '87
hampton '89
vegas '91
cal expo '90

There would then be a pie chart updated real time to show the results of the voting. Shoot, they could put in a 'stealie'.

Doing something like this would certainly stimulate fan excitement and would be a fun project. After all, we are not shy to submit our opinions. It would be great to feel some sense of contribution to the decision and some sort of pay off in the end.
