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…

Yes. Mine shipped out Tuesday. It left the post office in Memphis last night, and should deliver to my PO Box tomorrow. The price also dropped by the end of the day Tuesday, so I received a $2.45 refund from Amazon. Final price was $32.03.

Amazon version

Folk who ordered from Amazon, anyone get your shipping notice yet, Someone else got me mine, so they will probably get shipping notice.

This is a real treat. 1353 arrived and oddly I jumped immediately to "sing me back home". The fading light, the tall Oregon ever greens, the chilled out Donna, the Jerry going for as much soul as he could, the harmonies, the quiet crowd---good stuff all of it. I'll go out and say it, 1972 was a really good year. They weren't too cool for school just yet but they knew they were hot shit that's for sure.

It may have been posted, but damn.... I don't think I can wade through these posts.
Does anybody know if the vinyl is cut from the analog masters?
Thank you,

Sound quality... amazing for 1972, and I don't own high end stereo equipment. Mr. Phil Lesh is on fire for this show! I've heard a less than stellar copy twice before, but nothing that sounds like this. On first pass, I Know You Rider and Dark Star really shine for me. Can't wait for the weekend, when I can listen straight through the discs and watch the DVD.

It is indeed an oddity. This came up a few weeks ago in the May 1977 Box Set forum, and in the Internet Archive forum. As you will see in this interesting discussion over at the Internet Archive, the consensus seems to be that the use of the June GDTRFB to patch the May 77 Box was a good idea, BUT, not telling anyone they were doing it was, ummm, not such a good idea...

But hey, right now I'm just waiting on the postman - come on Veneta!

mbarilla - GDTRFB

Never heard about this before, but I just listened to both and you are correct. Same version on both releases. Pretty weird. As for an explanation, your guess is as good as mine.

RE: Boned?


I think the issue here is that are making you pay handsomely for the extras in the exclusive version. Amazon has the 3CD/DVD version for about $30, $20 less than the exclusive version here. That coupled with free shipping, guaranteed for release date, caused me to cancel my preorder and go with Amazon. I for one did not value the exclusives at the price difference and am thankful to TPTB that I had the choice. Getting the free "Auto Rip" was a nice bonus (I've already loaded up the album to my iPod), as are the free posters available to those purchasing at an independent store. The point is it would have been nice if a stream, poster or some other swag was made available to the fine folks ordering through I get that frustration.

Thanks for the info I appreciate it. Makes me feel better about the status thing. Will give it another day or two.
