Finally to be official released Box Set from remixed multitrack

I didn't go to these shows but I knew all about them! I was the one who came up with the idea for calling the shows "Formerly The Warlocks." It happened because Blue Oyster Cult had just played a "secret" show at a club as "Formerly Soft White Underbelly" which was their original name. When GD management were sitting around trying to figure out how to keep these two shows secret, it was decided to list them on the Hampton events calender as an "Arts and Crafts Fair." That way the manager of Hampton could hire enough security, etc without telling them who was actually going to be there. Only two people at Hampton knew the truth; the facility manager and the box office manager! The band management liked calling it "Formerly The Warlocks" and instead of my ordering the tickets from Weldon, Williams and Lick (which would have basically told them that the band was actually the Grateful Dead) we had the box office manager call in the order. No one at the ticket printers had any idea...It was one of the best kept secrets ever...end result was that there were, at most, 100 people with out tickets outside and most of them got in because most of the scalpers couldn't even give the tickets away for a pack of cigs!
And now these shows are being officially released in a six CD boxed set mixed down from the multi-tracked master tapes! The only thing that would be better is if it were a surround sound mix! Way too pricey at $70.00 but worth it in the long run...
Thank you, and Stay In Touch!
