this sounds strange

I am in search of a CD with music by the GD. What I remember from the top of my head is that it was published by an Italian label and has one single track. The title of both should be IT.

The article said that it is a mix from a number of recordings of something long and "nameless" the Dead used to play quite often (which does not help a lot) and simply called "IT".

any ideas, suggestions ?

Name that CD

OK.
Does anyone know which CD this is?
In the very beginning of the show before the band starts playing someone is on stage introducing the band members.
When he gets to Garcia he says "on sometimes guitar Jerry Garcia and on some other times guitar Bob Weir ladies and gentlemen for the deadheads of the world the Grateful Dead".
It's one of the commercial releases I just can't remember which one.
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks

Thanks!

Thank you!

I remember the bracelets handed out at Ventura the following year, bearing the 1986 dates! I saved mine for a while, but despite my best efforts ...

blair sez:

We got the call about the coma on the night of Thursday, July10; the shows were going to be Saturday and Sunday July 12 and 13. I presume papers probably got word on July 11 and ran it on July 12 (but I don't actually know...)

considering...

how vivid that time is in my mind, it is really weird I don't remember. But I'm asking around.

I need some show dates from a true GD geek

Hello everyone,

Can anyone tell me the dates of the cancelled Ventura shows in 1986? They were scheduled to play there soon after Garcia went into the coma. While I'm at it -- does anyone remember the date that the news of his coma got into the newspapers?

In case you're curious, this is fact-checking for a story I'm writing.

Thanks!
