But I can't seem to find where he is posted as a topic. I know that several of us wished him a Happy Birthday. Could he and John Perry Barlow be listed in the subsection Grateful Dead
under section Grateful Dead along with the other band members where they both belong? It's just not right that it is easier to find a topic Lilly Allen on this site than Robert Hunter. Thank You.
If the doors of perception were cleansed, everything would appear to man as it is, infinite.
much to be thankful for. everything is back up and running. and, to top it off, finally a new release in what i hope is a lengthy number of releases. after all the rhino bashing (which i've been involved in) i placed my order as soon as i could. hypocrisy or addiction? you be the judge ...
It is not dead. Some things failed to converge this week and they're working on getting it together. The big fat server meltdown has no doubt slowed things down a bit.
When I learn more I'll post it, if TS isn't up by then.
so, is the taper's section over? please let us know.
could Rhino please cancel all these new releases at once. They are seriously distracting me from complaining, making inane postings, indulging in childish word play,trying to win important quizzes and discussing the weather. You'd think they would have some consideration by now ! Honestly!
I'm Grateful (pun intended) that there is finally news and by nature I'm patient. It's great to see the ball rolling again.
Now about that '88 Laguna Seca, '90 Eugene and '87 Alpine box................................
How could we not empathize with you on your 10/31 post? What just happened to you is kinda like what was happening to most of those fans at Winterland (and most other Dead fans) right before Phil finally played the intro to Dark Star on 12/31/78. I was relatively new to the scene at that time but it was a big deal back then and still is today. A lot of Dead fans were getting what they needed for a lot of shows and then ... they got what they wanted. Is patience still a virtue? God, let's hope so. Are anger and being quarrelsome about money acceptable in the Grateful Dead world (huge breath before I run) - God, let's hope not.
"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."
I pretty much check this sight daily hoping for news of new releases and just when I was on the verge of giving up hope, there it is, a brand new release and series. I hope this is just the beginning of the floodgates being opened wide because of the wealth of material. I'm happy that it's from an under-represented year from Brents tenure (the Brent era being my favorite), even if it's taken from different shows (which I don't mind).
Here's to wishing for the Alpine '87 run (regardless of the quality in the vault) in it's entirety, Laguna Seca '88 or really anything and everything from '88-'90.
Incidently I think the compilation aspect will come in handy particularly during the Vince/Bruce-Vince era.
Spacebrother, I hope some of your questions have been answered. At least for now.
...........not including 3FTV and Cow Palace, the only things to come out for nearly 2 years it seems.
