Hopefully help on the way!

Hey Guys, Gals-

I wanted to ask anyone out there if I can begin again or to say try and re-establish a connection and collection of Dead shows.
Back in 1990, I lost all of my shows (some 400 to 600 cassettes) and that loss was not under my control.
I moved from the Midwest to the east coast at that time and have been here ever since.
I fell out of the “scene” but kept the spirit and tunes alive, but issues kept me from doing any serious trading. My last show was Soldier Field ’90 and my 1st. was ’76 in Boston.
Anyway, I’m looking for the opportunity to acquire shows again and get back into trading although I have nothing that anyone does not already have, i.e., some Dick’s picks, Beyond description, all the Dvd’s and other tidbits etc. I’ve garnered over the years.
Obviously I have the internet but where I live in the mountains there is only dial up and this makes it a pain in the ass to do anything without waiting what seems like years for a download etc.
I am aware that the digital age is here and shows are available on CDR and many people have transferred their shows to disk, kudos!
If there is anyone out there willing to email me a list of shows and let me know what it will take to get some, that would be gratefully appreciated.
I can send Cdr’s, postage etc. whatever you need, I’ll do.
Email me at

Thanking you all in advance,
Andy Kohn

Times being what they are, I'm certainly not predicting what the future will bring on the subject, but for the moment I think your offering might be highly appreciated by many. If I hear otherwise at some point I'll speak up.

Tracking Down Shows

I'm looking to track down CD copies of particular shows that have significance to me personally. Any suggestions as to how I might be able to acquire any of the following shows (first two are most important)???...3/24/86 Spectrum, 9/17/93 MSG , 5/16/81 Cornell, 12/6/92 Tempe, 3/24/90 Albany. I don't have much to trade with other than some recently recorded Widespread Panic shows. Any suggestions as to websites where I might be able to download or trade for these shows??? Thanks for your help. A

DTS 5/8/77 Show

I'm told this show is available on DVD Surround Sound. Deadlists sort of confirms this. Does anyone have info on this? And can I get a copy via trade or B&P. I have a pristine copy of this on cd if anyone needs it email me but if the DTS version is improved I would love to have a copy. Thanks

I will take you up on that

I would love to trade for CD's of those years. I will send you a message on what I have to barter.

crisis at tapers section

So with the apperent loss of the ability to download from the tapers section, I offer this. I have downloaded to CD, many of the sections selections, all date sensitive ( tried to keep all the 72's or 74's on a CD) Now I would love to offer these up for trade, but the question is will I be hassled by the powers that be?

'68 Tapes

...shall we go, you and I while we can...

Apparently, as of now, there are no recordings which reflect the dates you specified. That doesn't mean they don't exist, although they may not, in fact have been recorded, or the recordings may be lost, or they may exist in the vault, in which case, until there is transperency there, you'll never know. I'd suggest that you continue to listen to everthing around that time period, especially things that are date/location unspecific to see if you find anything. Provenence was not the top priority then, if you know what I mean. Also, keep an eye on the torrent sites, as little gems like this have a way of popping up frequently ( shows from 10/68 appeared recently).

Looking for spring 1968

There seem to be no tapes in circulation from the brief east coast tour of April 19 (Thee Image, Miami) through May 11 (The Dome, Virginia Beach). Does anyone know whether these shows were taped? I would love to believe and hope that something from Thee Image Miami shows might surface (not the later Gulfstream Racetrack show). Portions of the undated 1968 tapes sound very familiar and have some unique features I remember from the Miami show. But if anyone can definitively say that none of the east coast shows were taped then I will stop analyzing the undated 1968 tapes to see if they might fit into the evolutionary progression of spring 68. Has anyone done a study of the undated 68 tapes to estimate where they ought to fit in? There seem to be some uniqueness of tempo, lead guitar jams and percussion that give me hope they could be snatches from around that time. There was also a free concert at Greynolds Park in Miami during their stay in Miami. I have often thought that since the tour was so short and since Miami was the first stop that maybe no one bothered to bring or set up the taping equipment. Any hope, guesses, leads will be greatly appreciated.
