My old friend Ed Donahue gave me his stub from this show because I couldn't make it, (and I had been touring heavily at the time) thanks for the remind,...
I'm another one still waiting for this box.
All the tapes of this are screwed up I guess....But this is a big-time show...Might have been the BEST (and last MONSTER) Dark Star.....First verse is 24min in and it tops out at 43min long!!!!!!!! And the jem of this show is the LONGEST Here comes Sunshine (16min).....
FIND THE MASTER REELS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
1966 box set ...
I am a big proponent of Brent's early years, 1979-1982 or so.
The fall/winter 1979 tour has so many exceptional shows, yet is under-represented. I would love to see another show from this era released, such as 10/27/79 or 11/6/79 (my personal all-time favorite EVER).
It is very close on the heels of the Dead Ahead shows, but something from the 4-show mini-tour of Florida and Georgia in November 1980 would be a treat as well.
How about some stuff from the Europe 1981 tour? London 10/4/81 is SUPERB, SUPERB music. Brent is on fire all night long. I don't think anything has ever been released from this tour.
Of course, something from the Summer of 1985 would be most welcome, too. Arguably the most consisent tour of the band's later career. I can't think of a BAD show from that summer.
Finally, I'd like to see the Greek Theater shows in Berkeley from May 1982 be released. Man, that would be GOOD.
Thanks for all you guys do.
Since someone brought up box sets; how about a "Magical Month of May" box set or series? Featuring the shows from early May '77...
Maybe every show, maybe select shows.
If I had to pick a single performance, however I would call for
7/8/78 Red Rocks!
Peace & Light
More Grateful Dead Movie footage on DVD. That bonus disc in the box set is AWESOME!!!!
WINTERLAND NOVEMEBER 1973 BOX SET.
The Winterland 1973 BOX!!!!!!!!!!!!! Where is it? We will buy it!!!!
I'd like to see more of those May '78 shows released. 5/5, 5/6, 5/9, 5/13, 5/14, 5/16, 5/17 are all great contenders.
