I had an amazing guy from a Dead Facebook group recently gift me many JGB cd’s that were all from tapers and I am OBSESSED with the sound. I mean I’ve been listening to the Dead since I was a little kid but to hear the rawness of this sound just takes it to another level! When they kick into a song and the crowd erupts I can close my eyes and picture myself standing there in person. I’m sure many of you know what I’m talking about and it’s a bit embarrassing I’m so late to the game. If anyone has ANY old tapes I would be happy to work something out. JGB is incredible but I would die to hear some tapes of some Dead shows. If you’d like to email me that would probably be best. Cheers :-)

400 tape collection - free

I have at least 400 cassette tapes in my storage unit that I would like to give away for free. They are a combination of soundboards and audience recordings. All periods but heaviest concentration is from the 80's. They are in a state of utter chaos, in a very large and quite heavy plastic storage container.

This is way too heavy to ship, so must pickup in person. I live in Big Sur, CA and the storage unit is next to the Monterey Airport.

There are certainly a number of excellent audience recordings made by a friend and those are not in circulation. The tapes cases are fun, many decorated, harking back to that time when I was young in the 80's and had loads of time on my hands.

PM me if you are interested.

I have about 45 miscellaneous tapes,some with neat cases, are you interested and would you be willing to pay for just the shipping? Please PM me.

Will happily re-home your tapes!

My young daughter has followed her parents’ footsteps and become very into the Dead. She doesn’t have her own computer to throw on shows so tapes would be great for her - I passed on my collection of 400 before she was born. We’d especially love anything with fun fan art / crazy cases / etc. All eras more than welcome! Thanks.
