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…

A Dead.net exclusive

I just noticed : "A Dead.net exclusive". I wonder why it was listed on Amazon and other online retailers. Anyhow, really looking forward to this one. I would like the vinyl version but opted for the cd/dvd.

Footage

Does anyone know the time and place of the 60's footage of the band and Neal Cassady that was mixed into the film? Not the Furthur bus, but the band with Pig, also some dude mixing up a batch...I am guessing an Acid Test, but this is before my time. Thanks

Saw the SHOW in Cincinnati, Ohio

Loved the show. Blown away. Gets my vote for movie of the year. Award winning!

I Wonder

I wonder why Amazon had this listed last week when this appears to be a limited edition release. I ordered right away in case Amazon and other retailers start selling this. This would sell out fast if that happens.

amazing show

Great to see this film in the theatre. Amazing concert-the filming sometimes puts you right in the midst of the group mind unfolding-esp. during Dark Star. I agree that "Sing Me Back Home" was superlative. Soundtrack was clean, clear and detailed. Wonderful document of the band in a peak year. Bring on the box set.

Wow, another cool show...

This is getting to be expen$ive!! Sorry to have missed the film. I had the same repeated failure as spam so, after about 3 "strikes", I put a shirt from the annoying pop-up shirt menu in my cart, edited the cart to get rid of it and then it went through fine. Oh well, help on the way indeed...

The film was incredible, much different on the big screen and with BIG sound. The mix is vastly superior to ALL available versions, and believe me I've tried them all. Keith is actually audible and his performance makes the show even better (imagine that)! The drums are spread very widely across the mix, another HUGE improvement. The three guitars...how to put this...imagine three of your favorite mammals in a sprint toward an imaginary finish line, each in turn grabbing the one in the lead and throwing him aside and saying "no, I'm in front!". Repeat until the song ends. Garcia's intensity during 'Dark Star' is always fascinating and the 'Sing Me Back Home' at sundown is without doubt THE highlight of the film, far more moving with the improved picture and sound (the theater did help...). 'Bird Song' is now included. Here's hoping a download will be offered to us po' folks!?!?

Awesome!

It's a limited edition...but there are 12,500 Blu-ray sets, another 12,500 standard DVD sets and an additional 5,000 vinyl LP sets for a grand total of 30,000 units that will be in circulation. If any single show can sell out 30,000 units, it's going to be 8/27/72.

My birthday just so happens to fall 10 days after the shipping date. I wish I could afford to birthday miracle myself an LP copy of this.

I missed the Meet up at the Movies but am glad that I will at least most likely get a chance to see this, if not on my own tv, at one of my friends places.

I also missed last years Meet up at the Movies for the showing of the 7/18/89 Alpine Valley gig, and was in attendance of the actual concert itself. I too wish that would get released.

pre-order failure

Movie was fabulous here in Seattle! Thanks for doing this.

But my pre-order of blu-ray is not working :^( I wonder what the secret to success is? At least one other person (on the chat page) is having trouble pre-ordering.

EDIT: Tried one last time and it worked! WTF? Isn't software marvelous?!

My wandering thoughts.

Loved the music and close shots of the band tonight. Could have done without all the collage psychedelia during deep jamming in Dark Star (would much rather watch the band!), but it is what it is. The animation was almost 'monty pythonesque' without the goofiness. That said those 'close ups' of Garcia (and the rest of the band) are priceless. Our theater wasn't full but great to share with my wife and good friend. Loved the taste of Veneta '72. What a show !

Hoping that on the 'official' DVD version of Veneta that there may be 'alternative' cuts/angles (China Cat?) ala the alternate views on NYE 78 DVD. Or some extra footage ala the Dead Movie. That extra footage of the '74 Dead on stage playing through entire songs (China>Rider, TOO) with very few cutaways or 'artsy' stuff was so transcendent. Hey, might there some more footage from that '74 run? Yum....;o}

AND I still have hope they grace us with a DVD of that Alpine Valley show from last years 'meet up at the movies'. That show was/is shining gem, and beautiful capture of the interplay on stage with the Grateful Dead.

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