    Does The Grateful Dead apparel use sweatshops?

    hey 143!
    They still exist, but I don't think they're active. I think technology may have overtaken it all to some extent; it pretty much comes down to whether people still want to do things that way. It was fun to get those DVDs in the mail...

    Hey there Y'all -
    My Daughter was sorting through my records lately and found two unusual records (seem to be from a radio broadcast in 1981 on the NBC young adults network). If these are of value to the archive I would be glad to send them to the right person.
    Thanks

I've been seeing it for some days also. I just sent in a report on the subject; I suspect it's a side effect of some ongoing work and likely to sort itself out when said work is done, but I agree it gets unnerving.

I just started reading "Deadhead Social Science" and in the beginning of the book it is mentioned that you guys give out a free GD Almanac to everyone who joins the mailing list but this book was published around 2000 so i was wondering if that deal is still in play? Also when i try to join the mailing list it says that the page is not found. Thanks and Jerry Lives.

so, for example, for Furthur, you should go to Furthur.net. For 7 Walkers, go to their site, etc. Now that all the bandmembers have projects of their own, life gets complicated!

The Taper's Section archive http://www.dead.net/features/tapers-section is missing a bunch of weeks (August 22-28 2011, all of April & May 2011, all of 2009, ...). What happened? Will they be back? Unfortunately, I've fallen way behind in my listening (I was on April 4-10, 2011) and I'd be very disappointed if these are gone for good. Thanks for your help.

Comes out irregularly, some times twice a year. They do mail all their store address list as well, so you tend to get multiple copies. If you just have to have a Grateful Dead Talisman at 2am in the morning you can probably call an 800# and have it in your hands in 24 hours. Of course, this applies to music, too,

if you're on this site early on the East Coast it's just awash with spam. I know dead.net has been trying different things to stop it, all to no avail. Is there anything between the absolute freedom of being on here and getting people NOT to do just one simple thing? One suggestion: Higher a shift of 5 people to work from 1-6am wiping out spam. Clearly MaryE is overwhelmed, even wit Blair's help.

I have a suggestion for a future Dave's Pick,please don't laugh. Boise,Idaho-9/2/83.OK in the annuls of great GD shows it is not even ever considered.But it was a really good show.1st of all it was the ONLY TIME they played in Idaho.Most heads skipped this show to attend the Park West,Utah one a couple of days later so you might say it was an intimate setting by number of people that attended.And even though the Pavillion is not a very good place accoustically(finding a decent bootleg has been all but impossible)for a concert the Band responded and played a killer show for the few who attended.The 1st set was a pretty typicle "83" set - Wang Dang Doodle> Jack Straw, TLEO, Mama Tried> Big River, B. E. Women, Minglewood, Big RxR Blues, L. L. Rain> Deal.The Deal was exceptionally good,one of the ones where Jerry just does not want to end and keeps jamming,stretching it out.Overall a pretty good 1st set. But the 2nd set was the one of those killer 2nd sets that would make it a worthwhile Daves Pick - Help> Slipknot> Franklin's, Estimated> Eyes> Drumz> Throwing Stones> GDTRFB> Black Peter> Sugar Magnolia E: Baby Blue. It was the 1st Help>Slip>Franklins in 10 shows and 1 of only 16 played for that year out of 66 shows!As a matter of fact Estimated(16),Eyes(13),GDTRFB(10) and Black Peter(14) were all played sparingly that year. I suppose I may be biased about this show and would love to see it released for sentimental reasons(it was one of if not the best show I ever saw out of about 60) but I believe it is worthy of consideration. I know as I said before out of the thousands of shows the Dead played it probably would never be considered as one of their greatest shows but it's these types of shows that NEED to be considered for such a series of releases. Please check it out.I would be very interested in your opinion of the show and it's chances of consideration. Bill the Deadhead

There was this version of The Other One I heard on the grateful Dead Hour A long time ago, and I'm pretty sure it was from a 90's show, where the vocals sounded like donald/daffy duck... Does anyone know this show? Where I can find it again? I taped it on cassette and don't have it anymore, I think I also got a really good Standing On The Moon from the same Grateful Dead Hour... Other One with Donald duck vocals?? I really loved it.

I went to a Dead show in Atlanta, Ga sometime between 1969 & 1970 at a venue called The Sports Arena. There was a problem with the Dead's equipment & the Allman Bothers drove up from Macon & let them use theirs. Most of the show was Them with various members of the Allmans. Killer show as I remember & would love to find a tape of the show. I have lots to trade with anyone. George

Copied the below text from "Couple observations from last night" cause I would like to see the scene clean-up a bit. I sure do miss seeing the old guard around at shows. Hey I miss Jerry bout as much as anyone, but if you're alive check Furthur because they are bringing the real deal around and around, for only so long, this time. What do other Deadheads think about helping the scene be better. Are Bobby/ Phil helping the Shakedown scene happen well? Perhaps I should ask an insider, I think there's one here . . . Happy New Year! 2012. What a ripping show last night. Only Jerry's live presence could have made it better. Not to say JK isn't tearing it up, cause he is bringing the heat. The whole band is tight, in a good way. Wifey and I wondering why there aren't more pictures of Russo? I, like many Deadheads (only title I've excepted, post Garcia's passing) wonder at Mickey and Bills absence. If it's a financial decision, I am appalled. That said, Russo is excellent. I can not say one is better than another. Even JK and Jerry, sure do miss Jerry's voice and playing; if I could never hear him again and he was sitting next to me listening to Furthur that would be better than how it is. However, w/ JK all I can hope is that he plays as much, or more , than Jerry, Loves life, a bit cleaner, and rocks on and on; love that his own sound and arrangements are coming through and hoping Bobby/ Phil can support him in leading the band. Certainly Bobby/ Phil will always garnish due respect; but come-on, lead guitar drives the bus; even though everyone, even me, lead the band sometimes. It is how it is and I am loving it. Listened to a Phish show from a good friend who's never taken them in, then a week ago they came home for him. http://operationwasabi.com/nospoilers/ph2011-12-28-set1-ns.mp3 Just heard the Decemberists' version of Row Jimmy, excellent. The miracles and life lessons I've received from my years touring, taping, cooking, selling trinkets, and cleaning up, just awesome. Love, Truth, abundant. Last people in CalExpo lot, cops driving by w/ lights flashing, no sirens, me ripping djembe, girl listening, it was an excellent night, Gloria not the highlight but best version I'd heard. Lone dude crosses the lot to only other car. Shortly there-after my elbow was dripping, it's confirmed, I am home. A few days later at Laguna Seca there's Pepper fixing some dude's car, dash torn apart shoulder deep in helping another go on down the road, couple hours before LSD start time (that's Laguna Seca Days) That's what's missing from the Furthur scene: family. We've received criticism from folks for having our children at the shows . . . I am seriously sorry folks missed the scene "back in the day," but it's simple, LOVE/ TRUTH. So what's with the hating? Phish rips, you don't like em don't listen, maybe one day you'll like them, maybe not. If I know one thing in this life: keep an open mind, make no decision before it's time. No Time to Hate. Be Here Now. At the Merch. table inside they hand out little advertisement/ setlist stiffys. It's not my gig, mostly cause if the music is on I'm gigging. I've loved tracking the setlists and often have notes of jams not caught in other lists, but, while I'm writing I'm missing something, sometimes that's OK. Kind of like a camera, a little separated from the experience while I'm trying to frame and capture it, best done for me in moving meditation. Last night ripped! So looking forward to re-cast in an hour. I love that people are willing to put opinions out, hash it out a bit, contemplate. Nice to have a forum, other than AA/ NA where folks communicate without interruption. Although the Dead shows of yore there were multiplicities of verbal and non that were w/o interruption. I could walk through entire shows, and I'm saying all over, w/o bumping another but lightly, respectfully and with notice, care, and communication. Bringing the vibe to Furthur: remove the Crack, H, Nitrous, X; propensities. Bring back the LOVE/ TRUTH. Quick shout out to John Dwork and hARRY hAHN. LOVE YOU GUYS! Time Is A Stripper Doing It Just For You. Don't miss it Hating.

When posting to the forum I kept getting a gateway error message and I assumed my post never got submitted. I was wrong and now there are 6 or 7 posts for everytime I resubmitted. Since I really don't want to look like a spam bot and would like to share the links with this community is it possible to delete all but one of the posts? It's the one's with Into The Blue in the subject line. I'm assuming this has to be done on your end. Thanks so much.

I'd say it would depend wildly on the promoter and the venue involved, seriously. Others with recent experience are invited to weigh in, but there are some shows where vending is actively encouraged and there's a clear path on how to do it, and other shows where you'll get mercilessly harassed and busted if you try. Often on the same tour. Or such has been my observation over the years. So I'd say before you invest heavily in this plan, do a little research, because it is big fun and many miraculous, enlightening rewards can come along the way and some real bummers as well. Watch each card, etc.

for starters, are there any shows you have tickets for already? What tours are you planning to hit from an audience standpoint? This would help focus our thinking a bit.

you might head over to the Your Own Storefront topic, which normally wouldn't be the place I'd suggest for this but in this case might have a high concentration of vendors.
