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?

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).
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.
To all if you have not been ther nugs.net has a free stash of Ithink like 57 shows all great quality stuff in top corner where it says free stash all there to down load and burn. Many other artists as well phish gov mule Allmans Kellar williams
real cool chicks,sir,
everyone's doin' that rag
I listed my tapes last night. I was appalled to find about 7 empty tape cases. I need to find some of the tapes, they were some of the best. Years ago, I had my best collection stolen from my car. My wails of gridf brought the neighbors running, they thought I had found my cat dead, seriously. I replaced what I could but.... The thought that the tapes were sold on the street and taped over made me sick.
I've looked into transfering from tapes into my PC and then using a free download program to edit. Then I'll burn CDs.Then I can start trading, getting what I want and giving what someone else wants
Wanted CDs of these three shows

... to give away my cassette tapes. Hundreds, maybe even thousands, of hours of GD and all kinds of other music as well. Just don't have the room anymore - the collection takes up 4 shelves in our daughter's already cluttered playroom.
I made this offer on another forum last year and a few people took me up on it: send me a return envelope with postage, and I'll send as many tapes as I can fit into it. Usually, I can send 8 tapes for the price of a priority mail stamp, but if I send without cases, I can fit even more.
I'd love to give the tapes to those who might enjoy them and free up some space here at home. I still listen to a ton of GD, but mostly on the computer these days. I don't even know if anyone wants cassettes anymore (I do know that there are some ways to transfer them to computer files, but I don't have the time).
If you're interested, send me a message here or email firstname.lastname@example.org. I'll send you a partial list of what I have.
