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…

Good call, Cosmic Badger!
Forgot about that one but that's definitely the one...
That show is an absolute monster!

Another good one...

I know that it's hard to get a release from a guest musician but...
3/29/90 - Nassau Coliseum with Branford Marsalis would be awesome.
I consider that a legendary concert.

Next Best Thing

has to be 06/10/73
Robert F. Kennedy Stadium - Washington DC, DC

Must be released one day, but they need to make a deal with the Allmans.

'91

I'd second the Soldier show. Another one that's great from '91 is the second night at Sandstone 6-25. With the Sandstone show, you can hear them tuning up for Reuben and Cherise before Tennessee Jed. Alas, they didn't play it and never would again...

The next legendary release

I'm leaning toward Boston Garden ''91, either a box set or if a single show release 6/22/91 Chicago, IL. Dave mentioned this show in his very first online chat. It's a hot show.
The only reason I'm leaning this way is because ever since the advent of official releases started in 1991 only one show has been released from 1991 (Dick's Picks 17, 9/25/91). So we're due for a show from this underrated year.

The next legendary release...

I would vote for the Watkins Glen Soundcheck...
Or maybe Stanford U. 2/9/73?

So now that this is being released...

Now that this is being released and it is common knowledge that 5/8/77 Barton Hall is not in the vault, what is the next most highly rated Dead show that has not yet seen the light of day on an official release (and is in the vault in full)?
I am aware that plenty of you are walking databases of Dead performances. Unfortunately I am not which is why I ask.

I was on vacation for 4 measly days and missed out on the ringer t shirt I sorely wanted. Shoot! Anyone have an extra in medium?

Same Experience

I saw it there as well, and was very disappointed. I was pissed I didn't tell a manager, but it seems it wouldn't have made a difference. Yes, the delay was painful--nothing like hearing Phil and Billy completely off for the entire movie!

I don't mind the Gilliam-esque animation at all

also, how can you not love the smiling manatee that shows up early on in the animation?

strangely, I recall a version of the animation where a guy is flying around on a sled or something. I am pretty sure he was in there somewhere.

but to quote a soul from long ago, "who cares"?

The music comes through loud and clear, and that is all that I care about, ultimately.

Dark Star!!!
