Vince -- try archive.org

Go to the Grateful Dead collection. Sort by download count. The shows that have been downloaded the most are a pretty accurate picture of really good dead shows. There is also some serious commentary there.

I have a question that's been nagging me

I have a question: I am new to these forums and I was wondering where I would go to pose a question. I am semi-new to listening to shows so which forum would i go to ask people for recommendations for good shows? Or so I could ask various questions about shows and stuff?
Thanks ya'll!!

I'd go ask this

in the technical questions topic in the tapers section. I suspect you'll get an answer there in short order.

Hi

Can you answer my question? On archive.org when I download the mp3 files how do I access it on Windows Media Player? When I try to extract it, there are two copies of all the files and deleting one will delete the other. Is there a way to do this?

well, gonzo

out here on the West Coast, Bill and his style were pretty hard-wired into the scene, so I'm probably just used to it more. Hell, at BAM our softball team played BGP's, and I am here to tell you Bill did not tolerate losing... Not that we were much of a threat to the bluecoat team.

Bill had a pretty strong sense of doing things right, however that presented itself in the moment, and that encompassed everything from breakfast at dawn to this particular rant. He expected you to do right, he expected himself to do right. And he certainly delivered the goods better than anyone else before or since.

I forget at what point I first heard that tape, but it sure struck me at the time that it said something that needed to be said a lot more often. With Bill's customary lack of diplomacy, but eh.

Yeah Marye...

...that was the one by Grahm. I agreed with what he was sayig but the NYC-in-your-face way he was ranting from the mike really turned me off to an other-wise wholly honored part of my collection.

I understand if you like that part -- maybe that tone and style works for you. I know I sometimes do it inadvertently then always regret it afterwards.

Seemed to always work for Uncle Bo-Bo though!

Absolutely Fantastic

Thanks to lamagonzo for his excellent suggestion. By a strange coincidence I ordered and received it about a week and a half ago. I'm definitely not disappointed. Have listened to it several times already and keep hearing new things with each listen. I would appreciate any other suggestions you might have, even if they're only half as good as this one.

Thank You again lamagonzo
