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…

Which to get?

Saw the movie tonight and loved it.

I want to get one of these digital sets, and here are my questions-

The film's kinda rough-looking, so dvd would be fine in that regard (and the video itself is not the priority for me), but not sure if there would be any sound differences between the blu-ray and dvd disc itself if I popped one into a universal disc player- any benefit to one over the other here? I'd hope that the potential audio advantages of blu-ray over simple dvd would be utilized for the release, but imagine it's the exact same mix and resolution for audio on that as on the dvd (but all that's specified is "5.1 mix"). Anybody hear or read any word on this?

Also, though I love vinyl, I'd imagine it's a digital transfer (probably 24/96) at some point, and not fully analog. Has anybody heard anything specific about that? I searched the net a bit on these two issues but no info turned up on this- probably just too soon on that.

Any inside knowledge, good inference or deduction would be helpful, thanks!

more to come

Save your sighs, dear Katie. As I was reminded tonight, the scene still lives and breathes. There will be many more opportunities for you to fellowship and shake your bones. The music never stopped, and I don't think it ever will.

Tonight

Watching the film tonight was like stepping on a live wire -- I don't know how I will ever sleep. The bootleg has kept me happy for many years and finally here is the real thing. I'm SO glad they didn't sanitize it. Until now, the movie from '74 has been my fave visual document. This one is way beyond. Seeing the intent on the faces and the body language while the music is played brings a whole new dimension. If you think you know why you love the Dead, see this and think again. It's everyone's finest moments brought to life right before your ears AND eyes.

I just listed to my copy of the show the other day, and thought the sound quality was amazing. So, do I order a copy, even though I already have a great sounding copy? I think I already know the answer to that... Where's my wallet?

Austerity Fail

I am sitting home tonight - rather than at the theater - in a disciplined act of fiscal responsibility; that is, after the shock I received pursuant to recently tabulating the staggering sum spent on new releases (incl. the video box) and catch-up purchases (like Real Gone's rereleases of DPs) over the last 2-3 years.

So, let's reconcile tonight's accounting sheet:

Saved: $6 (movie ticket)
Spent: $52 (Veneta)
