Long Sought After Show


I'm brand spanking new here... But of course a long time Grateful Dead fan.

I had a tape back in high school (1981) that blew my mind. I unfortunately lost it way back when, and have spent years trying to jog my memory as to what show it was. Well I finally figured it out. It's from 12/1/79.. Stanley Theater in Pittsburgh. How do I go about downloading this most treasured concert? I found a site that streams it and it has been a delight to listen to again after all these years... but I'd really love to take it with me on road trips. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Weird Ritual Surfacing: 1979-02-07 SIU Arena

So I have this thing I do for my friends and family. On their birthday, I make them a CD of the Grateful Dead show that happened on the day of their birth and give it to them. It's kind of a cheap way of getting out of "buying" something, but it's my way of spreading the vibes and trying to share some Dead love. Obviously, I can only do this once, or I'd be giving the same gift to everyone every year. It's worked pretty well, and I've even converted some folks to the family. I've been able to find shows for almost everyone, that is, except myself. I was born on February 7th, 1979, the night of the notorious Carbondale show in Illinois where Jerry "supposedly" had a bad reaction to Valium. has this show available for streaming, but that's it. If anyone has a copy of this show, I'd appreciate it. I'll foot the shipping or whatever. I know this isn't the best sounding show, but I'd like to have it anyway.

Tribute to my Sister's Death after Grateful Dead Concert


I do not want to ruin everything, but I had a sister than went to this concert when I was 6 years old and a drunk driver killed her after this show. This was the last time any of my family would see her. I was hoping you or someone else had a copy of Grateful Dead Live at Deer Creek Music Center on 1990-07-18 in good quality or anything from that show would mean a lot to me.

I'm sure you'll find many kind souls to help you out, but I would be remiss if I did not point out that the Vineyard was just made for folks in your situation. All you have to do is sign up and be willing/able to copy the CD/DVD and send it on to the next person in good time. Head on over there!

getting started

Hello all. I am wanting to get started in aquiring Dead shows, the problem is I don't have anyone to trade with. I love the Dick's Picks series and the other live releases that have come our way, but I would love to get my hands on other shows. If anyone is willing to help I would be much obliged!! I am not too particular.

Free Tapes "Part 3"

Last summer I posted "part 1" and no one locally got back to me..... Last Winter (around xmas I think) I put "part 2" on here. I got a couple folks interested my tapes. I have given away close to 400 tapes from 65-85. I still have close to 500 tapes from 91-95 if you want them and your in the Portland/Seattle area, come and get em!! Otherwise I have found that I can send flat rate boxes with 60 tapes (possibly more with out the cases) in them for under $9. If your out of the area and want them let me know!! I want to share and they are just collecting dust. - Peace
