hi all like some others on this forum i have tons of old school cassettes that id love to pass along if anyone is interested in them they can be yours..
I have some original 1st gen cassettes I want transferred to digital files. Can someone do this for me?
Message or email me.
Hello, if anyone out there has old cassette tapes that they want to pass on I am more than happy to take them. I have a group of near a dozen heads in my area from the ages of 19-27. We would all really appreciate the opportunity to enjoy the tapes of old.
We can work the details out if you are interested. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Hey now, so I got a lab in NYC we specialize in taking old analog film, video, audio and producing high quality digital files from said media. Now normally I charge 25 bucks per audio tape to convert them over to digital. But as a younger fellow who found his way into the dead scene by benefiting from all the material recorded by the previous generations I'd be remiss if I couldn't lend my hand to the community of heads who want to update their catalogs. With that in mind anyone interested can message me and we will work something out. And if anyone in the greater tri-state area is interested you can drop by the lab. It's located at 115 East 31st street in Manhattan ( between park and Lexington). Just ask for Mike. Oh name of the lab is Imaging Coliseum.
Hey Now Family! I am so surprised that there's no discussion here about tape cover art. (At least, I didn't find any with Search.) During my tape trading days I made tape cover art for almost all of my 600 tapes. This activity was --and still is -- a big part of my life journey; my identity. I would NEVER throw away my tapes!
I wrote an article about it a couple years back for Relix. Here it is: https://relix.com/articles/detail/tape/
And here are some examples:
I am scolding myself for commercializing this post, but just so you know. I sell these on puzzles, shirts, mugs and posters. Please head over to Shmogger's Den to check them out! (You can also find me sometimes on Shakedown Street.)

Love you more than words can tell,
Hi I also have a ton of Dead cassettes, soundboard and audience. I also have a ton of Dead reel to reel recordings.
I live in San Francisco. I am moving soon. These cassettes and reels can be yours.
I also have 2 cool library file drawer case ( think when you looked up a book at the library). These are perfect for storing cassettes, they fit great. Come pick them up!
Hey I sent an email inquiring about the tapes if they're still available.
I gave the reels to a happy guy recently. I gave the cassettes to another happy guy, too.
I have non-dead cassettes ready to go to someone locally in SF. Lots of great live stuff.
Also have a library catalog perfect for storing cassettes, pull out a drawer and there they are! Catalog for someone in SF also.
Hi there, my portable hard drive recently died, I had over 300 shows on it, I'm heartbroken, can anyone send me on shows in a file format or whatever to replace them please?
Like others here, I've made the move to digital. Downsizing the space I take up so looking to pass along my collection of Dead and non-Dead concert tapes as well as some commercial ones as well. If you're in the Michigan area we could meet up to hand off or if you pay shipping I'll send them. Fred
Very interested in these tapes and sent you a message!
this post is not for the faint hearted,I was an early participant here from way back when Mr. Hunter was the webmaster..bout 30 trips around the sun give or take ago. I want my big ass collection of dead shows on cds to find a good home. These shows are Auds,Soundboards and about the best versions out there,no commercial releases.all done by the hands of the fans and thier decks. Ive known most of the tapers from back in the early days. These discs have been well kept in paper sleeves labeled and organized and stored in cabinets for cds and thats how i want them to stay. list of course is avail and pics , but I dont want to piece meal this collection out. is this possible?..would someone want this? is it all about hard drives, terabytes and streaming now? if not you maybe someone you know? shipping would be humongous.would have to be a pick up thing.im in the NYC area.Im not looking to sell the music of course. i Acquired most of this thru vines and the gratitude of the people who spread it far and wide. but with the huge amt of media put into it and storage cabinets maybe a barter thing or rtn of it on a hard drive..all open for discussion, ..also have hundreds of ratdog and PLQ shows but thats another project... PM me if this not beyond yours or someone you knows wildest Dead dreams through another day.
Hi. I have about 500 cassette tapes of ded shows. I mostly collected soundboards. Except late 80's and early 90's, those are mostly audience. The tapes run from, 10/2/66-3/5/92. They are free to a good home. Running out of room. I'm in the philly area. Thanks.
Check your PM's, am interested
Like to find someone who would like these locally, so I don't have to box and ship. Oakland CA.
Hello fellow head!
Younger fan here, eager to get my hands on some tapes and add to my collection (currently only holding vinyls sadly). I’m not in the Cali area, but I would be more than willing to pay for shipping, and forever grateful to you if you were willing to send them to a burgeoning collector in Chicago. I look forward to hearing back from you, and if it doesn’t work out, no worries at all. Have a blessed and safe weekend
Free: Around 100 SHN file CD-R's of Grateful Dead, mostly 1970's, a few 1960's. (I don't have a list and this number of CD-R's might come to about 30 shows. ) They are around 15-20 years old. I just converted one to WAV on my computer and it sounds great. As I recall from when I first made audio CDs out of them, the vast majority were fine with a very occasional corrupt file. They have been sitting in my house in a 3-ring binder with each disc in its own dust sleeve. The whole thing weighs around 10 pounds. Obviously if I could hand them over in person in central NC, that would be ideal. Otherwise, I'd ask you to pay the shipping cost only.
Marye, you mention photos. I have a very sad story on that subject. Many years ago back in 70s I had the good fortune to be the recipient of some good ol' GD hospitality. I hopped over from London to stay for a little while with Alan Trist, then as now running Ice Nine but back then from an office at GDHQ in San Rafael. The business was about a big gig in UK that eventually never happened. My job involved hanging with everyone and chewing the fat. I had this beautiful dinky little Rollei camera with me, could fit in your palm but it had a Sonar 2.8 lens. It was very unintimidating. I didn't want to play the tourist too much so I very occasionally asked if I could take a couple of shots (Keith at the piano in Trist's house, Phil posing with his new wheels at his place in Fairfax, Jerry et al backstage at the Keystone, Weir with Eileen at the office, few shots of Alan, Rock and Nicky S etc.). I was so discreet that I used up only a single roll of film (36 shots weren't they? I forget). Long story short, I opened the camera on my return to London to have the film developed only to find that due to a glitch of some sort the damn film hadn't been winding on so I was left with nothing. Bummer, huh? Those photos would be well-known by now, I reckon.
I live in Oakland and I'd love to take those tapes off of your hands! I can swing by and pick them up anytime.

I am wondering if anyone would like to have tapes of shows going back to the 70s. There are too many to count but I think there may be about 500 tapes, various quality. Essentially free, apart from shipping, but if you're in the Bay Area, I could even hand deliver them to you. Hit me up on my email: firstname.lastname@example.org
