Just like your favorite jam, things are going to get a bit funky on Dead.net over the next week or so. Community accounts will be temporarily closed October 16th-17th and may be under further maintenance through October 22nd. But rest assured, we will be back up and better than ever shortly thereafter. Stay tuned!
JP - I'd pay whatever it would cost. How much would you pay? I just hope the ball is kept rolling. I love the idea of whole-run packages - beginning, middle, end - 4/07 through 5/26 would be a pretty good whole-run package! Nos vemos.
"From day to day, just lettin' it ride,
You get so far away from how it feels inside,
You can't let go, 'cause you're afraid to fall,
But the day may come when you can't feel at all."
This show from Germany was broadcast live on TV and radio in Europe and features Pete Townsend of the Who jamming with the dead. You can find the show on various torrent sites.. Search under Grateful Dead 1981-03-28 Rockpalast Essen
Why not an official release. I presume German TV has the tapes neatly filed somewhere!
My first show. Some 30 years or more until I got to hear any of it in pristine quality on Steppin' Out, and it would be good to have the whole show. Indeed, as Mr. Lemieux notes, ALL of Europe '72 was recorded onto 16 track, so how's about that spoof that went round a while back - a Europe '72 Box Set, with all related items - soundchecks, interviews, whatever - becoming a reality?
It would sell like hotcakes
10-09-89 is a fantastic show along with many others from '89. I see the above posters point.
But have you listened to the spring of '78 ??
Like 4/10,11/78 4/12/78 , 4/14/78 and 4/15/78 to name a few..
For what it's worth, If there is any year that sounds like some of the monster years of the '70's it's '89
I take back what I said about no 70's show comparing to 10-9-89. I wrote that under duress brought on by the fact that very little has been officially released from '89 and '90. It was temporary insanity. I think I'm better now...somebody get me a glass of water.
1-22-78 from Eugene would be a great release, 'cause there's a monstrous Other One and Jerry plays the 'Close Encounters' theme between it and St. Stephen.
I agree with the above posts. Unfortunately, as far as 3-29-90 goes, the 'Eyes' is on "Without A Net," and the 'Bird Song' is on the "So Many Roads" box set, so it's unlikely we'll ever see the complete show, at least until the archives are made public for download right here at Dead.net. Isn't that why the powers that be made us stop trading soundboards online? Or was it so they can release one show a year and not have to worry about it being previously available? Hey, sorry for the caustic tongue, but somebody's gotta play devil's advocate! Or, at least, "he-who-doesn't-have-access-to-the-Vault" advocate!
MaryE, keep up the good work here! You not only have a great job- you're doing a great job!
10-9-89. Is that so much to ask? There's no 70's show that compares to this one. GASP!! DID HE REALLY SAY THAT?!
Yes. Yes, I did. Jerry simply could not have played a solo like he does in the Death Don't until, well, 1989. Not to mention the Dark Star that will melt your ears off, because it's played by a bunch of guys who actually GOT BETTER OVER THE YEARS AS MUSICIANS.
But I suppose we'll never see this penultimate show because the 'Stranger' is on "Without A Net."
I guess I have to be content with my hissy soundboard that has a tape gen. Nothin' left to do but smile, smile, smile...frustratedly.
Please put out the Winterland Box Set !!!
The 2nd Set of this show is an all-time classic. Branford Marsalis played the whole set with the Boys, and he did not disappoint. One of the best Eyes of the World ever, and that opened the set!. I would LOVE to see this released.
I have a bootleg, multi-gen copy of "Sunshine Daydream", the unreleased movie about the Veneta Or. 8/27/72 show.
I'd love to see an official, remastered proper release!
The Fillmore April 25 - 29 1971 run has already been released as a quasi-compilation, "Ladies and Gentlemen... The Grateful Dead" from Rhino.
