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…

From the ATL...

...to Brooklyn and all five Boroughs and the rest of Earth, for that matter: I'm happy to hear all opinions. Isn't that part of what this forum is about? Some love it all. Some are more critical. All of that is fine with me. I wish nobody would get uptight about it. I'm a lover of 1973 too, but it took RT 4.3 to really drive that home. I'll continue to be selective. That's what I love most about the GD. They took so many chances that the results varied wildly. I think they would agree. Otherwise, wouldn't a lot of this stuff have been released back in the day?

Got mine yesterday

BluRay-version #7043 arrived in Växjö, Sweden on Monday the 30th. Nice package but I haven't listened yet. Will when I have nothing else to do and can relax.

One Man- Give Brooklyn a break

Oh by the way I forgot to mention that I am from Brooklyn & still live there. Surprised that I am not some ranting loon?

One Man- right on

Funny you should mention Dave's 2 as a struggle. I felt the same way even though I absolutely love 73-74. I responded to a review on Amazon for that release & I was accused of blasphemy. The reviewer said it was the best sounding dead release he had ever heard. I simply questioned that. To me it sounds quite sterile and laid back. But to each their own. In the end it's all really good & we are lucky to have so many releases. I can't wait to listen to this Veneta, very excited.

Not Quite

I'm in Ireland. Still no sign. Getting very unhappy. Almost three weeks to deliver from the U.S. to Europe? Time for dead.net to change their postal partner!!!

I am in some agreement with One Man here, I received the Amazon basic set and it is beautiful, love the way he discs are placed in the Deluxe Digipak, but what really blows me away is the incredible Quality of the DVD and The HDCDs. The record set that turned me on to the Dead was "Europe 72", and now this is like a "USA 72", The songs are classic versions, and I have so much Dead material, I could be paring my collection back a bit too. I loved The May 77 box set too, great quality, but a lot of repeats, it has special meaning to me because of another reason too, it was given to me, and really helped me thru the summer. The rumors of The Creamery show are no longer a rumor, but inspirational reality.

My biggest problem with this Veneta release is that it makes nearly everything else pale in comparison. I tried listening to Dave's #2 today. Same band, two years later, and it is such a struggle. (Uh-oh. Now someone from Brooklyn is going to write a response titled "Struggle???" followed by a rant.) Anyway, how am I going to delve into the shelf full of archival CDs and come up with a winner? I foresee parts of my collection gathering some dust. I guess that is the natural course of events. Not everything can be great, thank the gods. Maybe I'll start paring the collection down to lighten the chaff. ("Chaff???") Opinions! Love 'em!

N.R.P.S.

I just got the release from the New Riders of their Veneta set. It was issued in 2004. Recorded by Bob and Betty. Transferred by Jeffrey Norman and mixed and mastered by Stephen Barncard. Perfect companion to "Sunshine Daydream". Got it directly from NRPS website. Not too many copies left according to website.

Strange.

What I foung strange about mbarilla's post about Plangent was not whether he had the purchased and/or received the SSDD set or not, but that the information is one (yes, just one) mouse-click away from here. Scroll up to the top of this page, then click on either the CD/Blu-ray, CD/DVD or Vinyl pictures (or the text link under the picture) then look at the right hand side of the page where it shows the product details. There, clearly displayed, is the line: "Audio tapes transferred and restored by Plangent Processes". Not so difficult to find, surely.
