I know the boys were not at their peak during the run of shows at Radio City in October 1980, but I still would love to have a complete show released. First sets were acoustic and ended with Ripple, followed by two electric sets. I attended 10/29 and 10/30, and I had a blast at both shows. I think the venue and the historical significance of these shows warrants a release beyond the "best of" albums the band put out.
more dvd releases, please. i know that there are probably legal issues surrounding some of the 70's era video that floats around, but finding a way around that would be very good for the legacy of the grateful dead and would help the newbies and casual fans understand what was really special about the band.
6/21/71 - herouville, france
4/17/72 - coppenhagen
8/27/72 - oregon
all of those could be made into nice releases- especially if there is more footage that hasn't yet been seen (3rd set from tivoli!!!).
Also, I remember David Lemieux saying that we might see more from the GDM and the Winterland 10/74 stuff. That would be great to have the remaining songs as a compilation on cd and some outtakes on DVD (Especially more from 10/20 since the stuff that circulates is not very good---Eyes->Stella Blue
zomby woof posts for me. that's one of my favorite shows.
and May 72
Another show i attended that would make a fantastic release is the Stanley theatre run on November 30-December 1st of 1979. The second set first CC Rider - Gloria Jam was great, but they are two solid shows throughout. I sat in the first row of the balcony right in front of Jerry, and it was pure ecstacy for two nights!
I'd like to see something from the late eighties, a great era from which there are only two releases I can think of (Downhill From Here and Nightfall of Diamonds). I would nominate this fun, high energy show....
