Come on Mr. Rhino at least one more.
Just an aside, but one thing I'd like to see continue if the Dick's Picks series carries on is the inclusion in the liner notes of local reviews of the show. I find those interesting and often very funny.
Back to the subject at hand....
I would also be happy to buy another compilation-style release, like So Many Roads, Phil Zone, and Postcards of the Hanging. Some folks are adamant about getting complete shows, but I'm not one of them.
Also, I disagree with the poster above asking for a complete show from the 1980 Radio City run. We've got Reckoning with a full disc of bonus material and Dead Set with a full disc of bonus material. The month of october 1980 is very well represented indeed!
But if we're going to fixate on complete shows, then here's another example of a late-eighties gem that deserves attention...
Greek Theater, University Of California - Berkeley, CA
Foolish Heart, Greatest Story Ever Told, Althea, Me And My Uncle>Big River, Candyman, Let It Grow
Box Of Rain, Victim Or The Crime, Crazy Fingers>Playin' In The Band>Uncle John's Band>Drums>Goin' Down The Road Feelin' Bad>All Along The Watchtower>Believe It Or Not>Throwin' Stones>Not Fade Away
Blackbird, Brokedown Palace
I'd buy this even though I already have a steller copy. Those who have not heard it, do yourself a favor and get this! It is one of those few instances where an intrigueing setlist is backed up by a solid performance. Solid isn't a strong enough word, however; they're just dead on. (pun intended) The only flaws are that (if I remember correctly) Jerry flubs the lyrics to Believe It Or Not and they apparently did not rehearse Blackbird at all...it's pretty bad. Jerry steps in to make up for it with a heartwrenching Brokedown, which makes it all better.
1. 1973 Winterland Box Set!!! If its already in the works, set it free!! but please not limited edition. Think of all those 1969 Fillmore junkies that had to go without.
6/14/69, 11/7/71, 5/11/72, 2/15/73, 5/26/73, and 6/10/73 just off the top of my head.
Winterland box would be cool.
I would even more so love to see the release of......

The BOX SET sounds good to me...
I've been listening to the 93 boston garden run. Say what you will about the 90s or in-ear monitors or Jerry being high too much, but some of those shows ar fantastic (and I was, til recently, a strict nothing-past-91 guy). Now I realy want to get my hands on 9.22.93, the LAST NIGHT OF MSG 93. My "Long Strange Trip" says it was the highlight of the year and who am I to argue.
PS: with regards to J A PRUFROCK; check out the Sunshine Daydream movie from Venetta 72. HEY LEMIEUX! COULD WE GET A NICE DVD ISSUE OF THAT?
um . . . what they said . . .
How about Rotterdam '72 and Veneta '72 or, for that matter, a '72 entire tour set. I would also like to see 10/9/1989. Video footage would be great as well. Thanks for what we have, looking forward to new stuff.
Get Fried Man
The old Keith & Donna album on Round Records, please
Possibly better than Europe, some great stuff has been issued, lots more hasn't
