we love Festival Express so much

it has its own topic!

As for the movie, it seems to go in and out of release. I suspect with the impending theater release something is up. I'll make inquiries.

My new hobby

I am really excited to have found this forum. I have long loved the Dead. Although I'm coming up on 55 years old in a few months, I will never forgot the magic of a Grateful Dead concert. First time was driving up to San Francisco from Los Angeles in probably about 1977, at an indoor venue. I only wish that I could remember where we went to see them. It had to have been Winterland or Fillmore Auditorium.. Also saw them at Red Rocks Amphitheater in Colorado at night, UCLA Pauley Pavillion, and UC Santa Barbara (outdoor/daytime). Also saw Jerry Garcia with Merle Saunders at a converted movie theater on Lincoln Blvd, in Venice, Ca. Very nice performance. I suppose one regret I have in life is not going to see more of their concerts.

I am just now starting to compile some stuff through ITunes. One tip I'd like to share, I found this DVD for about $6 at Amazon. Festival Express a documentary of a concert tour in Canada, from about 1970. Really some great film making, which includes a very well done New Speedway Boogie, and also some great informal jam session, that includes Jerry Garcia.
Here you are http://www.amazon.com/Festival-Express-Janis-Joplin/dp/B000305ZDO

Could anyone could help me find a reasonable priced DVD of the Grateful Dead movie. They are priced at almost $100 on Amazon. Time to go have a look at the rest of dead.net.

Thanks, Don

Hiya

Hi, I'm Mike
I consider myself both a Deadhead and a Juggalo, hence the name.
I'm 18 and have been a fan of Dead for a few years now.
I've met some pretty awesome people already, so i'm digging the site.

hello

Hello, I've just checked out this site, I remember my first dead show at the Kaiser auditorium in Oakland around the start of April in 1989, and the opening number was ' Touch of Grey', it was a truly beautiful track, the whole enviroment, atmosphere, was so nice. I had never been to anything like this at all. Well, not quite true, I saw the Jerry Garcia band about a week before that somewhere in San Fran, which gave me a little taster, if my memory is right, the opening track was 'Tangled up in blue'. The whole show, ambience, it was like being teleported into another universe.... of nice people. I'm writing all this because I think I was really lucky to have shared those experiences, my mind was expanded, and I am so glad to have been part of that experience. I saw the Dead on other occassions and each time was special in its own way. As my name suggests, I live in Canning Town, east London. Marin county it 'aint. San Francisco, Santa Cruz are beautiful places. Thanks for the cherished memories
