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…

Weird

One moment I clicked on the individual listings for the CD/blu-ray, CD/DVD and the vinyl editions and it said that they were unavailable to purchase, then a few minutes later it listed the prices again.

For a moment there, I thought all three exclusive editions had sold out already.

'79

The love for 1979 is encouraging; after 7 straight releases from the Apex years, it's probably too much to ask for...however, for those NOT in the know, RT 1:1 and 3:1 are still available for the best 20 bucks you'll spend anytime soon! Incidentally, the latter is a beautiful companion to DP 5 a few nights earlier - I'll play them in succession every 3-4 months or so/Katie

P.S.: I'll prolly have to go a la carte this coming year - but thanks for a great ride DaL, the boxes and subscription picks that bear your input are in constant integrated rotation with the rest of my GD catalogue (and I own everything commercially released). GDP and Rhino have set the gold standard for live archived releases!

The truth is realized in an instant, the act is practiced step by step.

Regarding 10/12/68 mentioned below, that would make the ultimate bonus disc: right around 80 minutes of pure bliss mixed with a little mayhem at the Avalon. Primal Dead at its finest.

Legends ... you couldn't help it

Brian20051 - I'm on the same page on many of the dates you posted, but I keep thinking box, box, box!!! You might think it sacrelidge, but I would have love to see the Field Trip as the last show in a box of the week. San Jose and the Berkeleys are all fine shows - what's to become of them? (cue the violins) I'd add 11/11/67 as a mind-blower early one.

Legends . . . I couldn't help it

Veneta is a tough act to follow. I'd say the only unreleased shows of similar buzz are probably the Watkins jam and 3/29/90.

Other than that, I think this is what's famous that hasn't been released or where we only have snippets released as far as I know:

9/19/70
8/6/71
6/10/73
8/6/74
2/26/77
7/8/78
7/13/84
6/30/85
9/18/87

These shows probably could have had a full release but won't since the best parts were released in compilation:
2/13/70
6/18/74
9/20/90

And for good measure, these would make me happy, too, but I do not think they're as famous.
