What no Deadhead should miss. What no taper should be without. Thanks to leadbelly 27 for the suggestion!
Thanks for the kind words, Mike. Very glad that the info is having its intended effect.
Hello, I do not want to ruin everything, but I had a sister than went to this concert when I was 6 years old and a drunk driver killed her after this show. This was the last time any of my family would see her. I was hoping you or someone else had a copy of Grateful Dead Live at Deer Creek Music Center on 1990-07-18 in good quality or anything from that show would mean a lot to me. Email me back at email@example.com Thanks
is there a tenative release date for a soundboard copy of the deadheads for obama 2/4/08 ? i have a tapers copy but i would really like a "real" copy of the show. is there a soundboard version out there on the web? or are they planning to release a dvd or cd to the general public? thanks VW Eric
lord knows you have plenty of company on this, but I haven't heard a thing, and I'd definitely be interested too.
Anybody have the Hershey run of 85? It was in June! I'll take tapes or cd's or whatever I can get! Willing to trade of coarse! PM me!
...anyone help me out with a 3/29/90...
I recently purchased a Grateful dead record off of ebay. It has a blank sleeve and that says nothing except "Grateful Dead Live" handwriten. The record only has the track listing Side 1 - Know you Rider, Casey Jones, Uncle John's Band Side 2 - Sugar Magnolia, Good Lovin. It also says MEL - 77 on the record. It sounds like an early 70's recording. Just wondering if anyone knew exactly what this is, who made it, where it came from?. Just curious and thought it was interesting. Take Care everyone. "You know the one thing we need is a left handed monkey wrench....."
anyone have 7/17/94 RFK stadium 3/5/92 hampton VA my tapes are about shot, much thanks.
Maybe not a miracle, but still. . . Looking for Garcia on the S. S. President (New Orleans) 11/3/82. Incredible night on the Mississippi. Just a few feet away from him. I have a partial that I picked up somewhere, but I'm hoping some kind soul has the full show. Also, hoping and praying that a soundboard appears from somewhere of the 10/18 and 10/19/80 shows at the Saenger in New Orleans. I have aud recordings (for which I am enternally grateful) but would love to hear them again clear. From what I've heard/read even the band thought these shows were incredible. . . Figured if there was a place that these could be found, this would be it. Peace y'all.
Being a "mostly seen em' in the 80's" head who likes to get the shows he was at plus all the other "recommended" ones....I'll chime in with one's I have and would gladly copy for anybody who needs or desires. 8/19/80 Uptown Theatre Chicago I and II. (let's do a mind melt....first "Rooster") 9/15/82 Capital Center, Landover, MD I and II (nice audience tape, uptempo show...First "Touch of Grey") 4/9/85 Philly Spectrum I & II SB w/ audience mix. CRISP...The first set is any collector's "MUST" with a "Midnight hour-Walkin the Dog-Big Boss Man opening 3 songs! Not to mention the rest of this HIGH ENERGY affair cooks. Get it for the 1st set alone! 6/30/85 Merriweather Post Pavillion, Columbia, MD I & II (Good time show with what myself (and a lot of others) consider to be the best Shakedown ever...what a "all one mind" jam it has...low Gen SBs) 7/1/85 Merriweather Post Pavillion I & II (Just a pickup of what they started the night before) and you can't beat the quaility of these SBs. 11/1/85 Richmond, VA Coliseum I & II...(Killer low gen boards and arguably (though no argument in my eyes) the best show of 1985...probably one of the best shows of the 80's. 3/19/86 Hampton, VA Coilseum - I & II Low Gen Audience (overall great show, first of the few "Visions of Johanna") 3/20/86 Hampton I & II...low gen aud. (everybody's gotta have the first Box of Rain in 13 years, even though the Althea beforehand is torturous with Jerry's fumbling of the lyrics. 12/27/86 Henry J. Kaiser Auditorium Oakland CA I & II. (low gen audience). Trippy show. Great "Dancin" and just overall nice performance. Those early "jerry's back shows really are worth having. next 3 I have both sets of each show. 12/28/86 (as above...) 12/30/86 (as above PLUS this show just was spectacularly played) 12/31/86 (well, it's NYE, show was "OK" but was nice quality tapes and worth any collection. 3/22/87 Hampton I & II - Board with audience mix.(NICE) Back on the east coast again after a long hiatus for Jer & the boys. Just the shear ENERGY is worth having this gem. 3/23/87 Hampton I & II - Board w/ aud mix low gen. If you don't have this show. YOU NEED IT. I prefer the 1st set with a SWEET "Stranger" and it just gets better. 3/24/87 Hampton II - Board/aud mix...the TERRAPIN for the ages. The band plays the audience, the audience plays the band, the energy BLEW THE ROOF OFF the coliseum on this night. Still sends shivers when I think about what we were all part of. ; ) I could go on, and have SO many more great tapes that are low gen SB's. I had/have a very good source close to Healy so that helped. (as well as lots of backstage visits : ) but just to name a few more off the top of my head, here are more without details, but WORTH the have. Contact me if you need something and I'll let you know if I have it, k. ; ) 87/ Laguna Seca both shows..Roanoke both shows...Red Rocks all 3 shows both sets..MSG a mix of them but 9/18 for sure. New Years 12/30-31/87.... 88/ Hampton all 3 nights (boards), Buckeye Lake (both sets, NICE CRISP audience), Greek Theatre all 3 nights both sets all boards. (that first night first set was insane and the Shakedown and Friend of the Devil are outstanding.....not to mention.....) : ) , Laguna Seca (CRISPYYYY! audience low gen), and if you don't have the "Playin in the Band" from this show, email me NOW!! ; ) And the list goes on. I have so many. just ask....but those were all shows I attended that are very much worth having for your collection. peace out, ~Tom ( The AllTomMitt Drawing Machine)
I have just a handful of tapes. I recall one recording from April 85' at the Philadelphia Spectrum. I think it was April. Jerry's vocals sounded like Kermit the Frog. Have a few 76' sets and I think a complete 77 winterland show--complete 91' June Charlotte, NC and Greensboro, NC shows. Complete 90' July Raleigh, NC show. The jam after "Uncle John's Band" was great at this show. I am disappointed in the lack of anything past 92' on the Dick's Pick Series. I would have thought the last GD show at Soldier Field would have been preserved on CD for the ages. I want to have more 93-95 stuff.
Ok here is my problem.... (like we all don't have plenty of those) Years ago I had a show that i traded for, ummm well, not sure what it was now that i gave up, but i do know it was a smoking Laguna soundboard that i got. While the show was awesome the real gem on the tape was the filler. It was a skit done by Jerry and Phil set in the future in Golden Gate Park. Nearest i can figure it must have been from a FM broadcast made for a New Years Show maybe. But who knows?..... Well that is what I'm asking.....lol Any help would be ..ahh... well helpful..... lol thanx folks and Stay Kind
speaking of great shows.,.. there was a show that i previously had a tape of (the date escapes me now), but it had an amazing dark star... it was a '70s recording i'm almost positive... one of those dark stars that was around 30 or so minutes and had (i think) two specific parts (one around 8 min maybe, the other later in the song) that crescendo to the point where it makes you drive faster and you have to keep yr cool. very jammy stuff. any help would be appreciated in tracking this show date down again. i misplaced the recording i had. feel free to email me at my username at hotmail. thanks guys!

Could be the best show ever, also has a KILLER Dew and the "Sing me back Home" is one of the most tasteful and sweet songs I have heard by the Dead. Words do not describe what is going on during the re-enter of "The Other One" out of "Dew", some of the most interesting stuff I have come across over my years of mining...YOU MUST HEAR THIS!!!!!! Bob Weir sounds like Kimock!!!!! I can see where Steve picked up some of his swirls...Keith and Pig were meant to play together, it's a shame that the Thunderbird got the best of him...

hey now, i've just recently discovered how cool 1980 is. Brent's still new and his voice sounds different than i've ever heard him, esp. on 9-6-80 (Lewiston, ME). many of the '80 shows have SICK Strangers, as well as UNBELIEVABLE Lost>Saints, and AWESOME Altheas. just three adjectives to describe some of the music. check out this show for Brent's voice, the three aforementioned songs, and the Alabama opener (which i absolutely love from 1980--anyone else think Alabama is one of the most underrated Dead songs of all-time?). also, check out April Fool's 1980 (smokin' show), 1/13/80, and 5/7/80 (WOW--at Barton Hall, first and only Playin' in the Barn--check it out). these are all just imho. ymmv, of course. peace. Grady I'm a Deadatarian; I don't eat Phish! (~):)
Id be up for trading various different bands from the dead to Marley or Led Zepplin. I mostly have dead but I do have one show from Marley when he played in Pittsburgh, then I also have one Zepplin show and a Garcia & John Kahn show as well. Id like to get some more Hendrix shows too. I had one show from 1968 I think it had an incredible version of 'machine gun' on it. Id like to replace that one. Send me your lists or drop me a line at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Id love to get this show recorded only because I attended it. There's definitely some shows from the 70s that were epic and hard to match. Ive heard Cal Expo in 89 was the best show that some people have ever attended. For heads old and new. I want to get a copy of Oregon State Prison. Was that 1982?? Ive seen it but have never had a chance to record it.
Hey All, I am really wanting to get my hands on these shows. I love DP 4 but want to hear the rest, primarily the acoustic stuff. Anybody willing to make me copies. I can pay postage both ways and send back some blanks. Thanks!! Arkdeadhead
I'm looking for this show (or as much is available). I'd prefer a lossless version. I'm new to trading, even though I've been on the bus since '69 (what can I say, I'm slow). If anyone can help, thanks in advance, and just let me know the drill. email@example.com
lookin for opening acts..circa 88-93
For about the past ten years, I had 8 Dick'sPick's and a copy of Cats Under the Stars as my Grateful Dead collection, so to me , this will always be my essential Dead collection, proven, tried and true. Dick's Pick's v. 12 3 CD set from Providence Civic Center in Providence, Rhode Island on 6/26/74 and Boston Garden in Boston, Massachusetts on 6/28/74. v.18 3 CD set from Dane County Coliseum in Madison, Wisconsin on 2/3/78 and the Uni-Dome in Cedar Falls, Iowa on 2/5/78. v.19 3 CD set from the Fairgrounds Arena in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma on 10/19/73. v.20 4 CD set with material from the 9/25/76 show at the Capital Centre in Landover, Maryland and the 9/28/76 show at the Onondaga County War Memorial in Syracuse, New York. v.21 3 CD set with material from the 11/1/85 at the Richmond Coliseum in Richmond, Virginia plus some tunes from 9/2/80 v.31 4 CD set featuring performances from 8/4 and 8/5/1974 at the Philadelphia Civic Center in Philadelphia, PA and 8/6/1974 at Roosevelt Stadium in Jersey City, NJ the other two were 11/8/69, and 2/11-14/70, but I don't have the cases anymore to see the v. #'s Also, I now have Nightfall of Diamonds, and would reccomend that as a desrt island selection, also.
How about :3/1/69, 2/13/70, 2/23/74 II (awesome 'Row Jimmy->WRS), 6/18/74 II (WRS!!!), 5/8/77 II, 6/28/85 II, 10/4/87 just to name a few!
They played a total of four shows in San Bernardino, CA, at the Swing Auditorium (3 of which I was fortunate enough to see--the other one, I was too young). Of the four, my favorite (probably because of the near-perfect "He's Gone" that was done to honor the memory of John Lennon) was December 12, 1980. Second to that was their tour-opening show on February 26, 1977 (when they premiered "Terrapin Station" and "Estimated Prophet," but not to be missed is their December 13, 1969 show, which I think is one of their best non-Bay Area shows of '69. Their tour opener at the Swing on January 6, 1978 COULD have been one of their best, too, but that was one of Jerry's legendary laryngitis shows (however, when he handed off all of the singing duties to Bobby for the second set and concentrated on his guitar, he played with incredible passion). Hell, a box set of these four shows would be a killer combo. Until one comes out, though, hit the bit torrents at bt.etree.org and make your own!
I did a quick surf of etree and found two downloads for the Portland 6/24/73 show, both of which appear to be the same source and length, and both of which are VERY partial (best guess is about 60% of the show). Both can be downloaded using a bit torrent program at http://bt.etree.org, and both are approximately 661 megabytes (but since neither of them is a recent post, they will both probably take a fairly long time to complete). If there IS a complete show out there, it probably just hasn't surfaced online yet (not all tapers joined the Internet bandwagon, and a LOT of tapes are lying in boxes, unseen for years). Now, if you needed the previous night's show from Vancouver, BC, instead, that one is fairly easy to get (in fact, I was listening to it in my car today).
this show from the greek is just smoking. i have an audience recording that not only perfectly captures all of the bands playing perfectly, but, has the right levels of the audience at the right times. the post space tunes are in excellent contrast to each other culminating with a morning dew that is so beautiful it will bring you to tears. the gimme some lovin has some fun jamming and tight playing with all especially phil and brent. this is a top notch 80's show featuring my favorite dead keyboardist, brent 7-15-88 Greek Theater Shakedown Street Walkin' Blues Friend of the Devil Queen Jane Approximately Dire Wolf Good Time Blues Turn on Your Love Light Cassidy Bertha Scarlet Begonias Fire on the Mountain Man Smart/Woman Smarter Ship of Fools Estimated Prophet drums I Need a Miracle The Wheel Gimme Some Lovin' Morning Dew Turn on Your Love Light
Boys were hittin' on all cylinders. Jerry took the stage, plugged in, threw the strap over his shoulder and launched with Touch. Both sets sizzled. Highlights: Half Step>Rider>Playin'>UJB>Supp. Jam; Comes A Time
I'm a big fan of this show...Brent and Jerry are on-point all night...seeing them on the DVD grinning back and forth and trading licks brings a tear to my eyes every single time...Ship of Fools...Morning Dew...ahhhhh....pure soul...oh yeah, and Women are Smarter is smokin' :)"Let there be songs...to fill the air"
Hey now! Is there any word on a possible taper at the Obama inaugural ball set? angelfaedarkstar ~Forever Grateful to be High on the Hill
enjoy!! too bad we all couldnt have been there!wheel http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KL160rh2m_o&feature=channel wheel>touch http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9XZNnPmsDGY&feature=channel_page
afds,hey now. word has it...this was a warm-up type performance. the guys will pull it together after a bit more practice. the first show is always a treat (greensboro). a big crowd is expected with a high level of spirit and anticipation. make it if you can or look for the show on http://bt.etree.org/ aloha.
of 6/27/83.. my overplayed legg now sounds like jerry and the chipmunks :)
1980-10-07This is an almost must have show, it has everything on it, wished I could of been there, unfortunately i'd of been 3 yrs. old. Phatmoye
Was Peter Green a guest guitarist with the Dead for the Fox theatre show 2/2/70 and or other shows. Are their archivial recordings to be made available. Thank you Bob Roman
Show was played from a flat-bed tractor-trailer truck pulled accross Haight St.. I think this is the photograph from the inside cover of the LiveDead LP. Viola Lee Blues is smokin'. The whole show has that psychedelic monster edge to it. Really good recordings are exceedingly rare.
Has anyone created a list of all the songs played throughout the years, and matched the songs to a specific concert, e.g., Althea -- gdyyyy-mm-dd.sbd.x.x.ogg, etc., by going through the concert archive? I started to do this, but I wonder if I'm re-inventing the wheel? There must be others who are trying to do it. Using the Annotated Grateful Dead web site's list of songs, I'm listening to my concert archive, and attempting to find the ultimate, super quality song. I'm starting with "Alabama Getaway," and ending with "You Don't Have to Ask." I hope one day I'll have the songs followed by the concert that's the best quality. Has anyone already started something like this?
I'd put out 4/1/91 Greensboro, NC as essential. Every song on both sets are just spot-on; the boys were on fire this night from the opening Jack Straw to the closing Baby Blue. Highlights include a beautiful rendition of Birdsong to close out the first set, a China/Rider as tightly played and energetic as they come, and a 30+ minute Dark Star>Drum>Space>Dark Star reprise that could go head to head with any played.
8/27/72 The Field Trip Veneta, OR
Hi all, Lately I have been gravitating around 73' dead. They really seem to be playing quite generously with each other. The vibe is excellent. Please share your favourite shows from 73'? P.S. SmileSmileSmile420, I agree the field trip is amazing...I had a blast jamming along with that show last summer. Anyway , you may be interested to know that filmed performances of the field trip are on you-tube for your viewing/listening pleasure. Peace
I agree with Vault Archivist David Lemeiux and the editors of the Taping Compendium in their belief that just about everything from Nov and Dec '73 is essential listening. The Nov Winterland shows (available as a box set here), the SoCal and Denver run (11/14, 11/17, 11/20-21), the Boston shows (11/30 and 12/2 available as a Dick's Pick), Duke (12/8), Atlanta (12/12) and Florida (12/18-19). But the whole year is worth hearing, the solid spring, the September "horns" shows, 10/19/73 (another Dick's Pick) ... Visit the vineyard and you can pick up some of these shows (Cream Filling vine has the 11/14-11/21 run). BUY the officially released ones.
Salt Palace: SB's beat DP -- The Other One is molecular!Pitt Arena: Truckin'>Nobody's Madison: Whole thing is supremely worthy
2/13 is a great show with a 30 min Dark Star and a 30 min Turn On Your Love Light. The other show from September is a great show all around but has a pretty humorous Truckin' thats worth checking out. Hope yall enjoy
Hi,does anyone have a recording of 9/22/91 at Boston Garden? i luv to have my daughter was born on that day, I know that there is 9/25/91 Dick's Pick but I heard on XM 9/21 show a few months ago and I'm trying to track it down. thanks, Art
the first time i heard the recording of that oct 9- 89 show just a couple weeks after the show from a friend back east shipped it to me here in nor cali, it gave me chills. even to this day like wharfrat does in the closeing of winterland.
The rest of this tour) Forever Grateful, Forever Dead, Peace- Moye
