Radio City Shows 1980

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.

video

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!!!).

Winterland '74

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

Pittsburgh, 12/01/79

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

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....
