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…

Eugene Show was Incredible!

We were so lucky to have Adrian Marin make sure the manager had the sound perfect! And of course we were so lucky to have a lot of us who were there that day in 1972 in the audience: Ken Babbs, Chuck and Sue Kesey, Mike Hagen, Chez Ray, Sara Hammer, Nancy from the Springfield Creamery, Joey and Shirley Valentine, and many of the interviewees in Adrian's documentary.
For me, it was a very emotional screening, partly because of the loss of that era; but mostly it was the faces on the screen who are no longer here among us. To see some of the FWAPS film crew: Bobby Sky, Lew Melson, and the Ultimate Intrepid Tripper, Ken Kesey; and then to see the youthful Ken Babbs, Bobby Laird, Tangerine, etc; was heart rendering.
However, it was the Incredible Music, the sensory visuals, and Garcia the Guitar God, Passionate Bobby Weir, Bone -deep bassist Phil Lesh, Entranced Bill Krutzman, and Brilliant Keyboards and a background vocal by the Godchaux's that had me riveted.
They say if you remember the 70's you weren't there, and I don't remember much about that day, but especially this music being so incredibly transcendent. Maybe we were spoiled by all the great music concerts at the time. But this had to be an all-time high-water mark. So thank you to all of you who struggled 41 years to make this happen. It was so very worth it!

Jerry and Phil and Bill's faces during Dark Star are priceless.

My OCD kicked in between El Paso and SMBH, but no matter ("gonna happen every time"; "there's nothing you can hold for very long"). I got DARK STAR.

After the movie, I came back out to the world of iPhones and Wolverine. Sigh.

mystici654: OUCH


Did you get at least a refund?

So sorry to hear that. Psychedelic blue balls.

If you order the show, make sure to play it loud.

Struck Down by the Universe

Was jacked up all day waiting to see SSDD on the big screen. Having missed past Meet ups's I could not believe that the stars were aligning and I was finally going to see the band as they were when I was in the prime of my life. Arrived at the theater early in anticipation and as the film started to roll I realized that the universe had not let the stars align since there was no sound except static and then we were told by the theater management that they would not be able to show the film due to technical difficulties.
I am still in disbelief. Hope this did not happen in too many theaters as the disappointment is almost too much to bear............

Any idea if the vinyl version will come with a CD-quality download of the songs?

last night was wonderful

being able to see and hear the band like that, in that setting, among fellow deadheads was a sorely needed reminder of the power of our thing

thanks to rhino, dave and everyone else who helped make this happen

i may or may not have gotten a little emotional during "sing me back home"...and it felt good

dead net ordering

Whenever I order or download from, I find that google chrome is the only way that works.
