Grateful Dead

Welcome to the Sunshine Daydream Boutique.

On August 27, 1972, fresh off their now-legendary European tour, the Grateful Dead traveled to Veneta, OR and reunited with the Merry Pranksters for a common cause – to throw a benefit concert for the Kesey family’s Springfield Creamery. A stage was erected under the hot Oregon sun at the Olde Renaissance Fairgrounds, tickets were printed on the fronts of the Creamery’s yogurt labels, and the rest is history…

One last thing.....

Rrrrrr.....looking at my note, I don't think it came out right. What I meant was that I went to the "meet-up" two years ago and was one of five people in the theater. Two (a couple) were enjoying it. Two other guys, I think, came in by mistake.

So what I meant was that IF there are people planning to do it this/next year, I'd love to be part of the community. It still won't be like it was......I'm pretty sure those days will never return.....but it would be nice to be a part of something. And my wife, bless her, absolutely HATES the Dead. And Dylan. And pretty much anything I like 'ceptin' those BeaTles. But I love her like crazy, anyway.

So, if it's on again this or next year and if I can hang with Deadheads in the Dallas area, I'd be a very happy guy. And, unlike Mr. Pole, I'll remain dressed throughout. I promise.

I've noticed that some people are leaving email addresses. That is usually not allowed on forums, but it's worth a shot. You can reach me at my website of MJMagician.com, or email MJ@MJMagician.com. Thanks!

I don't get it.......

I see people complaining about there being only eight songs on the Amazon version of the DVD. Huh? That's the ENTIRE movie! Sheeeeesh.....

These guys weren't exactly MTV guys, ya' know? They had a certain amount of film to work with. Personally, I absolutely LOVE what was captured. Even the Pole Guy I can put up with.

So, OK....I'm an old guy and my first Dead show was in '73. My college girlfriend forced me to go. I made believe that I didn't like it. I've matured.

She and I are both now happily married, although not to each other. We've been in touch, though, in this Internet age, and we both love this umm....."movie." Jeeeeez, that was one hell of a band, huh?

I'm still no "Dark Star" fan, but everything else on these CDs and the DVD are GREAT! Can't wait for the next movie "meet-up." Anyone in the Dallas area want to meet? I felt so alone in Plano two years ago.....

1972 is amazing

Great release. The fact that they waited to release this with the film was a good move. If the show had already been released then maybe we could have gotten the film plus a bonus disc of unreleased 1972 but having them paired together is wonderful to have for our personal vaults. I couldn't afford the E72 box so it's nice to have some of that energy and multitrack sound represented affordably. Thanks!

In synch

Had some quality time to take in SSDD, the DVD, and was relieved to find the video and audio were in synch. At the theater, they were off just enough to be a distraction.

In yesterday's viewing it dawned on me how miraculous it was that Bobby was able to flawlessly nail El Paso. The Dark Star before it had covered some pretty unchartered territory.

Deluxe Editions not sold out, yet

I am somewhat surprised that the Deluxe Editions, the numbered CD/DVD & the CD/BluRay, have not sold out during the Holiday gift-giving season. I was almost expecting to see the BluRay edition to be sold out in early January 2014. Perhaps soon both editions will sell out.

number 1 release

I was listening to Sirius/XM station t'other day in my car on a long trip-they went thru their countdown of top releases from archive material for 2013 on jam-on station-Sunshine was no. 1-they played "Sing me Back home" as their illustrative selection. May '77 box was lower down-maybe 7 or so. some Zappa, Young and Phish in the top 10 also. Happy new year. What is in store this year? Time will reveal all.

Just perfect!

Being a devotee of The Dead for the best part of 40 years from across the pond,i ordered the SSDD blu ray version in August and received my precious order in plenty of time for Christmas whereupon my wife duly took charge of it and stashed it away not to be looked at again until the day itself (well it was her Christmas pressie for me). Having noticed reports of wrong discs (dvd instead of blu ray) being received i was so worried that i too may have been sent an incorrect copy....but was unable to check as the whereabouts of the package were well hidden. It was to my delighted relief on Christmas Day when i opened it up to find everything as i wanted. Wonderful presentation and the movie is so crystal clear it could have been filmed yesterday...highlight of the movie - Dark Star of course,Bird Song,Bertha,China Cat and Sing me Back Home but i am thrilled to own such a prestigious event in the Dead's history.Thank you to all concerned.

This DVD is the greatest

This DVD is the greatest thing these eyes have ever seen. Dark star El Paso sing. I wish I was there at that moment in time. Thank you to everyone who put this little package together. What a wonderful thing.
