    you just did.
    What you can't do is start a new thread. I see you've posted elsewhere, so I think this is resolved?

    Looking For Photo Or Video Alpine Valley 1988
    I'M LOOKING FOR PHOTOS AND OR VIDEOS FROM THE 1988 SHOW AT ALPINE VALLEY...MY FRIEND AND I (two college girls, blonde and brunette) WERE ON STAGE FOR A FEW MINUTES AND I'M TRYING TO FIND AN IMAGE OF IT. WE GOT LUCKY AND MY FRIEND MET ONE OF THE LIGHTING GUYS...IT WAS SURREAL....any help would be so appreciated!! Somebody decided they needed my backstage pass a few years later so I don't have anything other than the memory fading away.

    a positive Brian Dyke review

    Here's one largely positive review from Brian Dyke, in Taping Compendium Vol. I: of Denver Coliseum, Nov 20 1973 - though some of the details of his description don't match what I hear, and he resorts in a couple of places to (mild) versions of his typical fault-casting (saying "the triad of 'Promised' > 'Bertha' > 'Greatest Story,' falls flat on its face" - which just isn't so, I think ["Promised Land" 's particularly rhythmically good, w/very spunky drumming; Jer flubs the 2nd verse of "Bertha," though]).

    We hope that the answers below will help with any questions that you may have.
    We are very sorry for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience.

    Who do I speak to about.... A new GDM merch product?

    I have had a great idea for quite some time about a merch product that I would love to see come to fruition.
    I believe the only way to do it right would be through GDM, as it would be a Highly Iconic design or two, used in a 'NEW' way, it would be a very popular item GDM should maintain control of.
    Please let me know whom to contact!
    Thanks!

I've searched and searched I-Tunes and other downloadable sites looking for a studio recording of The Wheel. Has anybody any idea where I can find one and download? There are plenty of live versions but I can't imagine out of 2500 Dead songs to choose from on I-Tunes there is not one studio recording of one of their top 5 songs ever. They are all live and long. I just want the song. I thought it would be easy. No? What am I doing wrong here?Thanks for any help.

It is 8:09 pm monday august 17 and not only is there no Tapers Section posting but no notice or explanation why. I think it would be like saying excuse me when you step on someone's foot to acknowledge that you haven't done something you said you would do ( Next week we have music from 1968 and 1990, so don’t miss it. Some great stuff coming up. We welcome and encourage your questions or comments to the Tapers’ Section, at the address below. David Lemieux vault@dead.net) and perhaps even briefly say why (e.g., is it monday dude ? that shit was so good I was happily paralyzed and thought it was still saturday ). lethedoom

contrary to the assertion above, the Taper's Section for this week has been up since yesterday at http://www.dead.net/features/august-17-august-23-2009. apparently the homepage didn't get updated, and I'll see about getting that done, but as far as I can tell the TS went up right on schedule and is available at the above link.

Hey now, here's a tough one for anyone who might be able to help... I know it is going to be almost impossible but you never know....I have a copy of the above show and at the end of disk 2 there is a terrapin station that is not from this show. After a great reading of the tune, Bobby says "ok, we're outta here" must be an encore and from reading set lists, they did terrapin for encores in 77, can hear Donna on cut so must be from 70's, anybody got any ideas as to what show this version of terrapin came from?

Hi there! I sent off for the Sept. 18, 19, & 20 Furthur shows at the Fox Theater in Oakland through GDTS-TOO. Is it normal for the tickets to arrive in hand to the purchasers less than two weeks before the dates of the shows? The show dates are 10 days from today; pretty sure when we did mail order for the Grateful Dead in the '80's -'90's the tix came through a bit quicker? Any information gratefully appreciated!

we just got ours today. We're in the Bay Area, so if you're not it might take a couple more days. I think this show had a bit less lead time than in the olden days.

when you say 'seems to be up.' you must be looking at something i can't open. I just logged out and back in to be sure and on both http://www.dead.net/front_page and http://www.dead.net/features gdh #509 is posted and the links still lead to the same page as last week and the media player still plays #509. 10:20 pm pdt thanks for caring--the site must have virtual indigestion. lethedoom

This morning #509 was still the newest, but this afternoon #549 arrived. I had checked using several browsers--Opera, Chrome and IE often since last wednesday--besides my usual Firefox, so I don't see how a cached page would have appeared on all of them instead of the current one. No matter--thank you David and Dead.net. lethedoom

if you want to be able to exchange messages with other folks here, you don't want to block messages. If a particular person annoys you, you can block them individually without having to lose the entire function.

Kinda new here so apologies if this is the wrong forum to ask this...Went to the 10/24 Dog show at the beacon, great energy, I looked on archive.org and see all the shows except for that one. Are they planning a special release for this specific show? Or does anyone know where I can listen to it?

you seem to have posted about it. Twice. The more appropriate venue for it would be the Your Own Storefront topic, which is for hawking one's wares. What you can't do is start a new topic.

Can anyone tell me why spammers, and other ne'er do wells, are allowed to ply their trade on this site. Why isn't more being done to protect the users of this site? We deserve better than we are being offered. Many of us have been long time "customers" of all things Grateful Dead, and what has become of the band as a corporate entity, is completely disgusting. Read the "Got issues with your store order" forum if you aren't aware of how it goes down these days. Thanks for yer time.

i don't like the spammers either and have asked MaryE to not make the links live as a way to stop this, but there doesn't seem to be a will or a way. if people are making their living posting the links they should question what is an appropriate place to do so as opposed to graffiti. and definitely somebody should let those folks know they are not welcome to do their thing here. though it may be the kind of situation where paying any attention at all makes it worse... agree with johnman. hire him as chief post-buster.
