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…

sounds great

Received mine from Dead.net. Listening to it right know. No complaints, sounds great on my system. Keith is playing his ass off. I am reading that some fans feel ripped off, misled, misdirected, and so on. And I can see your point. Most releases “here” have their share of problems/missteps. Try being a Zappa fan. You ain’t seen anything. Talk about mishandling a wealth of material. Also, Rhino is a business. Where I am employed, the megalomaniacs in charge have no clue. Only difference is Rhino does produce a very attractive product. I am very grateful for these releases and only hope they continue. Thank you for releasing this and with all the different options.
Did I mention Keith is playing his ass off?

The 72 Creamery

#3625 Is home! Brings tears of joy to my eyes. This Set makes me feel like the band is alive and well and the concert happened yesterday! The boys, full of life and take you back to a happy, simpler time that we all miss. God bless the Grateful Dead.

Simply Perfect

Wow the movie is just stunning it completly captures the moment, the vibe and the relaxed laid back crowd. theshot of the dog and the tiny kid at the begining of Jack Straw is simply priceless. The sound quality of the cd's is perfect. Thank you Dave and Rhino for finally releasing this snap shot of happier days

diggin' this

Listened to the CDs last night-great sound. Working on the notes-Merriweather essay is terrific. The Plangent Process was used on these Cds according to the notes and for my money I couldn't be happier with what I am hearing music-wise and sound-wise. Transportational music. All songs played with high energy and/or enthusiasm. Absolutely amazing release. Played this over my big honking horn loudspeakers. The additional hearing loss is worth it. Love the slipcase design and coloring. Definately worth having the real deal. When I went to movie night I was mesmerized by the band interplay on "Dark Star" and Jerry's wonderful "Sing me back Home". Listening last night reminded me what an amazingly unique treasure these guys were. Put this in the Smithsonian-if not already done. Give Jerry the honor and respect he deserves as an interpreter of American music. Convert sceptics with this set of music. Rant over.

The retail version...

...and the Dead.net version includes all the video that was produced (including documentary). Due to limited tape, not all the songs were recorded to video. B roll footage is used for the pictures in the booklet.

?

Was that the Problem? Like does anyone know where it said that on the Amazon version was only going to have 8 songs on DVD? If I knew that I would have gotten DVD here, instead of Amazon. I just thought it wasn't going to have tie die cover, book and 40 minute interviews.

THANKS AGAIN AND, MAY I SAY IT AGAIN, DL2 FOR HOF!!!!!!!!!!!

Hola -

Have to agree with the posts re Rhino not taking care of the Dead.net orderers re schwag. BUT, Rhino IS making amazing stuff available. Who cares about an MP3 download, or a poster you'll just tape up in a Mancave (its hardly high art).

The complete show mixed and mastered to a near perfect sonic level. The release of the remarkable Sunshine Daydream in film quality (after having been shown on BIG screen in August). And, to top it off, a very reasonably priced 4 LP complete that is spankingly clear yet warm and deep.

Nothing here but gratitude. Listened to Dave's special show on XM in which he teased coming attractions with no clues.

Love to all and DL2 for HOF!

Davey

Watching it

Well, here I is, watching the DVD, wow, great "Jack Straw" ,love Jerry on a strat, with Bobby on red Gibson,Jerry is hitting every note. Vocals are great. Ahhh,"Bird Song" super,Have not seen Donna yet, hear Keith ,but where is he? Jerry sounds like he is plugged strat right into amp. Love those tie Dyes. Something strange is happening on my DVD, it is skipping a lot of songs from CDs, I'm on Dark Star at 1 hr 10 minutes,almost done. Bass solo.Hmmm, I haven't seen Donna yet,is she in the first hour and 17 minutes? Maybe sequencing is different on CDs and DVD,Donna comes on on "Sing Me back Back Home", after Dark Star.I just checked Amazon, that version only has 8 songs from the concert on DVD,Promised Land, China Cat/Know you Rider, Bird Song, Dark Star,El Paso, Sing Me Back Home,and Greatest Story ever told. That is like 100 minutes,but it flies by, The restoration is amazing. I'm glad I have all of the songs on CD, they sound great.
