    Does anyone have contact…

    Does anyone have contact information for the photographer who was shooting family portraits at Laguna Seca in 1988? Today my daughter, who was three years old at those shows, mentioned that the post-show scene at those gigs is one of her earliest memories. I’d love to get a print of the photo that was taken by that photographer. Thanks!

    Hey 1st Show!

    Thanks for the assist; May 22 1977 is the one. Listening to it right now. You know what's wrong with that show? NOTHING! ;-) Many of the tunes played that night are easily top picks for me.

    In Deadbase X, the lists for all 30 Sunrises:
    5-12-77 Estimated>Sunrise>Terrapin
    5-22-77 Good Lovin'>Sunrise>Estimated
    1-11-78 Samson>Sunrise>Terrapin
    4-11-78 Fire>Sunrise>Terrapin
    That's all that have either an Estimated or a Terrapin on either side.
    So maybe that 5-12-77?
    Cheers

    Looking for a certain 1978 show with Sunrise > Estimated

    A long, long time ago, when we listened to tapes, a friend of mine had this great show from (I think) May 1978. Here is what (I think) I remember:
    Terrapin > Sunrise > Estimated, which were mind-blowing. Probably Donna's best Sunrise; will bring you to tears.
    I'm fairly sure that Terrapin went straight in to Sunrise. But I'm sure that Sunrise went straight in to Estimated. I don't think it was edited that way.
    They were playing these tunes a lot at that time, but I've combed through the archives and just can't locate a show with this sequence; my memories may be at fault.

    Thanks!

    I'm working on a project where I want to attempt to archive Grateful Dead bootleg lot shirts. I would like to create a print publication as well as a website celebrating the lot bootleg shirt. I would also like to document the stories and lore behind the shirts. I would love to hear any stories about anyone funding their tour by selling shirts, stories from shirt creators, any crazy Dead bootleg story (favorite shirt, shirts tha led to introductions, crazy adventures, etc... Feel free to send me any pictures, stories, ideas, suggestions, etc.. Thanks! Peace.

    FOTD supercut version

    I heard a supercut of Friend of the Devil (I think on Deadcast). It recut the song using live clips from their earliest version to the later years so you could hear the evolution of the song. I can't find it or remember where it's found. Anyone know?

    James "Blood" Ulmer setlists?

    Hey. Seems pretty quiet around here, but I'll give it a shot.

    On a hard disk full of music data I have at home, I came across a James "Blood" Ulmer show that I'd torrented probably over ten years ago, but for whatever reason, had never unpacked.

    The directory was simply titled

    ulmer2_27_86

    There is no info file and I'm not familiar enough with his music to figure out the song titles.
    Various Googling strategies have not even turned up the existence of this concert.
    I'm starting to wonder if the date may be listed incorrectly.

    If anyone can't point me in the direction of some info about this show, I'd be... grateful.

    Thanks.

I was wondering, this show is listed on the archive: http://www.archive.org/details/gd71-12-10.sbd.yerys.1311.sbeok.shnf But there does not appear to be a downloadable version/lossless? Is that right,only streamable? Someone mentions in the posts about downloading, but I do not see any files available other than the streams? Is there another source I can look up? Thank

There's a lot of history and bad feelings and misunderstandings and water under the bridge over this issue, but the short version is that soundboard recordings are only streamable on the Archive. It looks like several versions of this show circulate, however. You might try asking around here, in appropriate places, if anyone has this show and would be willing to share.

Howdy, I heard a smokin' Iko Iko last November on the XM Dead Channel but cannot figure out where it's from. I've emailed them a few times with no response. It was played on 11/12 at 9:40 a.m. and I MUST have it! Any suggestions on how to figure it out? Many thanks....

Way back before God gave us internets I was hard pressed to find the origins of Iko-Iko, having danced myself Rumplestiltskin style right into middle earth the first time I heard it live, and agian when I heard it sandwiched w/ Brother John and Man/Woman Smart. Like, what the f is a spy boy, flag boy, what's with the setting of stuff on fire in such a joyous song???I already had a decent background in Nawlin's music but only in the tunes not the history. Prof Longhair, Dr. John, The Nevilles, Toussaint, Beausoleil, All manner of Zydecos, but the Dixie cups had a killer Iko-Iko. Anyhow with the wealth of info at our fingertips we can wiki up info (true & false!) about Jocamo and feeno etc ad infinitum. The HBO show Treme has featured a lot of music I have heard from the speaker stacks at Dead shows and I LOVE it. I feel like an old hand. The Dead took me so many places around the world and up the backroads down the mountain trails and through the swamps of our own musical country I owe them and thank them so so much. Thank YOU......... for real good time as well as a great musical education. uh, this starteed as a suggestion to enjoy Treme where you will hear a bunch of good music! peace!

Hiya — I've run across some reels labeled "Dead Stanford." The first number is "Alabama Getaway." From the context, I believe the recording was made between 1976 and 1978. Can someone enlighten me with details? I tried searching by location but dead.net just throws darts at me. ;)

Interestingly, Alabama Getaway segued into Greatest Story on 10/9/82 and again on 8/20/83, both times at Frost Amphitheater, in Palo Alto. The song was first performed in late 1979.

Yeah, it is definitely not 76-79 as the Dead didn't play there those years, and as Ted says, Alabama Getaway was not performed until 1979.

I have a CD with a blueish green background a silver squiggly line all over it and the number 6 (or maybe 9?) in a small box. I bought a CD collection from a guy and there is more dead stuff than I ever could have imagined, but try as I can I can't put my fingers on what this CD is. It doesn't sound live. The first song is Ripple, followed by Cumberland Blues and the 4th song is Eyes of the World. I'd insert a picture if i could.

I have noticed that i have a wake of the flood album that is misprinted. the track list on the album says Mississippi half step, sing your blues away, row jimmy, and Stella bluebut when the album is played Stella blue is before Row jimmy. Does anybody know of any information on misprints for this album because i have checked out a couple other wake of the flood albums and can't seem to find any like mine. any information would be great! Thanks.

Borncrosseyed - I may be wrong, but I'm sure that there were some Wake of the Flood albums produced illegally, and distributed through record stores. And the GD or the official distribution company, or label, called in the FBI to put a stop to the forgeries! I could be wrong, but I'm sure I've read this somewhere. So: to be outside the law, you must be honest! And there will be another sunrise

I am currently writing a paper for school on the Deadhead subculture. In order to complete this I project I need to interview someone within the subculture. Would anyone on these boards be interested in being interviewed? If so I would greatly appreciate it. We can do the interview over the phone, through email, or any way you please.Thank you for your time, Sam Starks

Does anyone know what the wording is on the small white sign on the right side (left front corner) of the train station? I've expanded the pic in Word, but can't make out what the sign says.

I'm just in the very beginning stages/brainstorming a book on the concert from 5.8.77. Widely considered to be the best show the band ever played, I'm hoping to gather enough photographs, recollections and other assorted information to turn the book into an oral biography. But of a show, not a person. If you were there and would like to tell me about the show/what you recall/what you saw please be in touch. No memory is too small! Feel free to email me at cornell5877@gmail.com. Thanks. Jawal Nga

Can anyone help answer this - 1st show was Capitol '78 DeadHead invite show - Fire was played standalone. Loved Scarlet/Fire but it took like 40 shows before I actually heard it live - very weird! Anyway - none of my crew ever saw Fire by itself and I know I saw it again in later years - like between 84-89. When was it - does anyone know? Thanks :)

Did happen, but not very often. Here's what I could cull out of Deadbase: 9/16/78 7/13/85 6/22/86 7/4/86 9/8/87 9/24/87 5/27/89 9/20/91 - Help/Slip/Fire There's one you don't see every day! 5/27/93 7/3/94 Conversation is always more interesting than recitation, so speak your mind and not someone else's.

Please help. Last night on NPR I heard a fabulous GD version of a Rolling Stones song (or original of a RS cover of a GD song), but have no idea of the name. I would really like to have it, but need help. It was played immediately following a story on the passing of Owsley "Bear". Anyone, please?

So, new to the site, perhaps you uber experts can help: I'm certain I heard an instrumental version of Mickey Hart's The Pump Song a few years back on the radio. Now all I can find is the version with the layover of Greatest Story on it. I believe the version on Rolling Thunder has the lyrics attached to it too, but I'm not certain, as I haven't found a copy as yet. I would love to get the instrumental version, or, am I trippin? No such instrumental recorded? Thanks.

Hi! Has there been any official mention of setlists from the 1968 shows that were found in the vault for Road Trips Vol. 2 No. 2? Also, I was wondering if anyone can shed light on any of the "pitch" inperfections that have been discovered on official releases... I know that I have noticed some on the FILLMORE 69 patches and the "Alligator" on the RTV2N2 patch...

Hello, sorry if this has already been answered. I tried searching, but kept getting the unable to display page. Anyway, I'm looking for some form of database that shows when and where, as well as the total number of times each song was played I'm looking for different versions of different songs to learn Phil's parts from (I know, daunting task trying to emulate such a rare talent). I have a fairly large collection of shows in digital format, and looking at each setlist is getting to be a bit tedious. Thanks in advance for the help, Rex PS, since I'm posting in a trivia section, I may as well ask; are there are electric versions of Deep Elem Blues or New Speedway Boogie? (Performed by GD of course)

Rhunter08: yes, excellent live versions of New Speedway Boogie from the early 90's. Years tend to blend together but I want to say '91 is when they broke it out. Deer Creek if my memory serves me correctly (not when they broke it out- when I saw it). i saw it on the west coast too that fall, I'm pretty sure. But yes, NSB was played electric, usually into Drums. J.T. Gossard http://thehallucinogenicbible.blogspot.com/

bt.etree.org and www.archive.org both have the Las Vegas show. It is not in the Vindex, surprisingly, here on dead.net. Deep Elem was performed electrically after the October 1980 acoustic runs from San Francisco to New York. The 2 nights in New Orleans did not have a Deep Elem!! Check Lakeland FL from 11/28/80 sounds great. GD archivist David LeMieux just featured parts of the Glen Falls 4-14-82 show: Deep Elem is played here too. Use deadlists.com to search for the show, or the song, of your choice. New Speedway Boogie indeed was brought back in 1991!! 2/19/91, at first, with several more dates to follow, including Deer Creek and the Palace. I heard one in Salt Lake in 1995.

I have had cause to wonder from time to time which song Bobby flubbed the lyrics on the most times. From a very uninformed position I'd take a guess at Truckin'. I'll bet someone out there knows which song and how many times.

I'm trying to piece together some of the shows I've been to. Anyone know the dates when Led Zepplin was playing Winterland and the Dead were playing the old Fillmore? How about the date for the Winterland show that Wavy Gravy announced from stage that refreshments were being passed around "take a sip and pass it on." I don't think a lot of people heard the "sip" part :-O!!!! Seems to me Mr. Gravy may have been in a bodycast, but then my vision was fluctuating somewhat. That show might have been the Indians on Alcatraz Benefit. Any help appreciated!
