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…

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.

9/20/70

7/19/74 or 6/23/74

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.
