"The rock music group Grateful Dead is scheduled to perform at a 'potluck picnic' Sunday, sponsored by the Springfield Creamery." Eugene Register-Guard
A "rock picnic." The Field Trip. Kesey's Creamery. August 27, 1972. The Springfield Creamery Benefit. Call it what you will, the sun was beating down hard and bright on that fateful day in Veneta, Oregon when the Grateful Dead heeded Ken Kesey's call to help save the family Creamery. The 100-degree and rising temperatures did not deter the band who were still riding high from their adventures across the pond. It did not discourage filmmakers John Norris, Phil DeGuere, and Sam Field who gained entry into the Dead's tight-knit world with their promise to capture the culture and integrity of the scene. And it certainly didn't inhibit the estimated 20,000 Dead Heads who could not believe their, well, pot...luck.
In fact, this blistering day turned out to be a near-perfect little piece of the Grateful Dead experience and it is with great pleasure, that 41 years later we can present Sunshine Daydream to you the way it was meant to be heard. Cut from the flawlessly preserved 16-track master, this 180-gram LP set of the "most requested" and "most revered" Dead show of all time promises to transport you back to the epic scene with definitive versions of the band's most beloved songs like "Bertha," "China>Rider," "Playing In The Band,""Greatest Story Ever Told,""Dark Star," and "Sing Me Back Home." Limited to just 5,000 copies, you can pre-order it now.

So I have one request of GD.net: Please, for once, ship numerically from the lowest numbers, rather than start at the end. Yeah, I know. Who cares? OK, so there are some of us hard core collectors that, on a certain level, like to have low numbers for our limited edition issues. Not a big deal, granted, but as a hard-nosed collector who always buys Dead releases immediately upon issue, it's a bit disheartening to always get numbered sets that are at the highest end of the total release. Just a request. Please.
BTW- All the other guys do it this way.
for this price.
Great to hear Chris Bellman did the cutting on this puppy. Now if the folks at RTI did the pressing, we'd surely be looking at Vinyl Release of the Year honours!
