    Our friends the Rhinos have various and sundry new releases in the development process, but they're always interested in hearing what you'd like to see hit the virtual shelves of the Store. No promises, but you never know...

    This topic is for requesting new individual shows. There are also topics for box sets and DVDs.

    If you've already requested something in the previous Requests topic, you don't really need to request it again, but hey, if you just can't help yourself...

    15th Anniversary Show

    Folsom Field Boulder, Co from June 1980.
    And since I'm here: A four disc (3+ bonus disc) Red Rocks 8-30, 31-78 if it would all fit. May have to go mini-box. This run has at least five first time songs having just come from the recording of Shakedown Street and is a slower just exactly perfect pair of performances in stark contrast, and in a crazy juxtaposition, to the July '78 Red Rocks shows.
    Cheers from colorful Colorado

    11/11/70. 46th Street Rock…

    11/11/70. 46th Street Rock Palace Brooklyn. Wednesday night. First of 4. A few songs into the second set out came Jorma, Jack and Papa John Creech from the Airplane who played most if not all of the set. I've been looking for a clean copy for decades. The ones on Archive are horrible.

    Watkins Glen complete soundcheck set 7/27/73

    I asked this on another area of this blog already. May ask again. Can someone PLEASE tell me how I can buy an authentic cd or download of the complete dead soundcheck set from the Watkins Glen show - 7/27/1973? Thank you for any reply? Have the jam from So Many Roads. Have a framed poster in my home office. (I was only 11 at that time, I’m convinced I was born 10 years too late because I would have been there).

I don't know if Dave Lemieux reads this, but this is going straight out to him: I am beginning to take this personally. I saw my first Dead show in Spring 1984. My peak years were 1984-1990. My favorite year was 1985. The best quality tapes that we had access to at school were '82-'85 shows. Many of us had outstanding shows from this era as staples in our collections. Garcia's lead vocals may be spottier in places, but that is more than made up for by fierce guitar playing. Kudos for the two '83 shows you've released recently in the Dave's Picks series, but there are several notable '84-'85 shows deserving release. These were important years for many of us Deadheads, and we saw some some killer shows. Please show us some love and stop acting as if this era never existed. Our experience was valid, and your virtually ignoring this period makes it seem like you are invalidating our memories. Thanks.

P.S. Nassau 3/28/85 wouldn't be a bad place to start... ;-)

12-31-84 .

31 Dave's Picks so far, and not a single Shakedown Street?

I am guessing the Series will end at Volume 36.

Yes, I know the song was released on its own on So Many Roads Boxed Set ... but does that make it ineligible for release? I wouldn't complain if it would be released as a complete show -- may be the best Shakedown Street EVER!!!

Is the Entire show available as a soundboard?

This show blew my mind away the other day... I think it's much better than the '81 and '83 releases in the series.
So much raw energy!! Love the Bucket -> Don't Ease

So why not?

Since it's Halloween... I starting thinking ... Why have not they released the GD 10-31-1991? Let me be a devil's advocate , maybe it has to do with mechanical royalties to all the guys sitting in with GD, or Kesey's estate wants some kind of big money for his poem rap during Dark Star? Let's hope not, if they can settle the film rights for Sunshine Daydream , they can handle this release too. Let's face it, post 90s GD releases are not getting released for lots of reasons but they are some great performances. This show is one of them... I remember when it happened everyone's jaw hit the floor and the soundboards were out there ... Frank Zappa just released a run from his vault from Halloween 73 even with some collector swag material ... why not the same from GD ... I don't think post production would be too expensive since I don't think these shows were multi tracked per se ... the soundboards already sound pretty good better than Dave's Picks March 24th 73 in my opinion... price it for 50 bucks , put some posters and paraphernalia swag and you will have a seller ... and many happy collectors ... DO IT and slate it for a Halloween release date !!!

I just came across Jan 8 1979 at MSG, and what a great show! Solid performance, tight vocals, high energy, great setlist!
I would love to hear a board mix of this show all cleaned up and mastered.

The most recent Dave's is from Dekalb '77. There have been pristine SBD's of this show floating around for decades and it was heavily traded when I followed in the 80's-90's. Why does GDM keep releasing shows many long term heads already have in fantastic sounding quality? It's not too hard to find this show or Cornell.

There exists a fine Betty Board of this show, and the China Cat Sunflower > I Know You Rider has already been remastered for the Long Strange Trip soundtrack. It's a fine 21-song show held to 300 villagers in the French countryside. Plus, there is a very solid quality video to go along with it. At the very least, the best of the show could be snuck onto a bonus disc! I mean, it is a great show altogether, but I'd be satisfied w/ the hits being remastered. Plus, it is one of the last shows with the original 5, of course after Mickey left and before Keith joined.

Oct 31, 1971 Ohio theater - Dicks Picks 2 -- release the complete show.
Release the complete shows from Dicks 12 as well!

Otherwise, how about Hollywood Palladium 8/6/71? or Mershon Auditorium, Columbus Ohio 1976?

It's always been a mystery to me why this show has never seen an official release. Nine out of ten heads agree that this and Hollywood Palladium (unfortunately released in two separate dribs with the drabs never released) were the top shows in that great summer tour.

Gosh, I have quite a few. 2/17/79 Kieth & Donna's last show, great from start to finish. 7/13/76 great Orpheum show. 12/28/83 killer show at the S.F. Civic. 4/28/85 Frost a real knockout. Last but not least my first, 6/17/75 please try and find it. Sorry for being so long winded. Thank You for all the fantastic shows you guys put out.

As much as I love Three From the Vault, I have always been disappointed that the entire 5-show run from the Capitol Theater in February 1971 wasn't released as a box set. (Perhaps just cheekily skipping 3 and 4 and called Five From the Vault, haha.) After all, they were all recorded on multitracks.

I suppose that with Three From the Vault, it's too late for a boxed set of all five shows, but at the very least, the multitracks from 1971-02-18 should be mixed down and released. First Bertha. That Dark Star > [first] Wharf Rat > Dark Star > Me & My Uncle. A great, great show, with Ned Lagin and his magical tinkling clavichord and the last we'd see/hear from Mickey for five years.

This is such a no-brainer.

The one show I would MOST like to see released in the Dave's Picks series is the incredible 1972.10.18 Fox Theater St. Louis show. The Playin > Dark Star > Morning Dew > Playin is simply mind blowing. This is also the first time the Dead split up Playin. They wouldn't do it again until over a year later on 10/21/73. Pretty please?

Sorry, I did this wrong earlier, posted as a comment to someone else's request rather than a new post. So: the point is that 1972.10.18 Fox Theater St. Louis is one of the finest shows from the finest tour of the finest year. I'd love to hear your magicians clean it up and release it in it's entirety!

7.2.88 Oxford Plains Speedway, Oxford, ME would be my pick for a show I'd like to see put out. I know 7.3 has already been released on "30 Trips", so maybe it's been considered and then passed over, but 7.2 is the finest example of what the GD experience was, in my opinion. In terms of song selection, quality of jams and overall feel; this night is most deserving of getting the royal treatment.
Picking your favorite Dead Show has always been like picking your favorite flavor of ice cream. Suffice it to say, I really like ice cream and this night is one of my favorite flavors!

Yes, I know no SBD historically exists in the vault, but has it shown up? Or how about an offshoot series of audience recordings, say 10 volumes to start to see what the interest is. Have the taper of each show write up the notes.

Here are a few that come to mind among many:

8/29/80 Philly (actually, the 8/29-8/31 run would make a pretty good boxed set)
8/4/76 from Colt Park in Hartford
10/14 and 10/15/84 also from Hartford

7/13/85 doesn't have an official release...yet...I feel like this would be a very strong contender for an individual, maybe smush some stuff from the next day, I feel like it would be a reaallll killer. From the start with OMSN the whole show is electric to the core

Don't want to sound like I'm complaining here, because there have been a lot of great picks through the years, by why hasn't 2-18-71 Capitol Theater not been released yet? I know we got the "Beautiful Jam" with So Many Roads, but that really just set my expectations high for its eventual release. I would be beside myself if this historic show were released in its entirety. Any other Heads out there agree?

Perhaps it's something in the air, but I feel like this show's time has come. Jerry had a tone on his guitar on this night (just the right amount of reverb) that, like the Miles Davis classic, "Kind of Blue," I've tried to search in vain for its twin, only to never to find it again. The acid-dripping beauty of this night just stands out in my mind for some reason (like the Dark Star from 2/13/70, or the just officially released--thanks again, Dave!--Dark Star>Wharf Rat>Dark Star from 2/18/71). It would blow my mind if this show were to see the light of day. And after the year we've all had to endure, couldn't we use just a little bit of light?

Any other 'Heads out there agree?

Considering that Dave's Picks 36 is made up of two consecutive shows, the same approach would be ideal for the 6/30/85 and 7/1/85 Merriweather shows. Both nights were excellent, and Heads have debated for years which night was better. A nice 4 CD DP release could cover it all.

A single show I would love to see and another fave from 1985 is the 3/28/85 Nassau Coliseum show, although you'd need some extra filler to get it to 3 CDs. But that show holds up. Scarlet-Fire is my jam, and that one is insane, with Bobby getting incredible sounds and Jerry melting concrete. I just hope that show has not been blackballed for archival release because of Mickey's really rude behavior -- on stage -- to guest Matt Kelly on the following night, when he kept chucking his drumsticks at the back of Kelly's head, probably because Kelly had sued Billy for beating the snot out of him after Billy confronted Kelly over money he was owed for a Kingfish tour (I remember those chants of "Let Bill Sing!" on that club tour).

How bout , 07-04-1984 ... I have a cassette recorded from YouTube of the SBD, sounds great , easy show to release ...

How bout 02-15-1973 , I noticed a Master Reel source popped up on Archive.org , so why not let us get a nice remaster of this classic show

I know the Betty Boards have always been popular but they are so widely circulated ... so let's have some shows that are RARE - keep it real !!!

11/11/70 46th Street Rock Palace in Brooklyn. Wednesday night. First of four in a row. Two or three songs into the second set out came Jorma, Jack and Papa John. They played most if not all of the set with the Dead. There are two copies on Archive. The quality of both is terrible.

12/10/71 Fox Theatre, St. Louis. Extremely solid and well played like everything else from this period. Comes A Time may just be the most absolutely perfect early version, but the jam with Truckin' > The Other One > Drums > Sitting On Top of The World is some of the finest Grateful Dead music one will ever hear.

There are a lot of shows that I'd like to see released, but, for the reasons you mention, this is one I think would be a top-10 in the Dave's series. The Comes A Time has only a few rivals, all from around the show's date, including 12/05. And the 2nd set odyssey, capped by a stomping Saturday Night (I particularly love the pre-encore Dead Air - it's gotta be part of the release) would be something I think Deadheads would really appreciate. One day...

Not a particular show, but a Dave's Picks prediction. 2020 saw '77, '74, '84, and two '87s. 2021 has '78 and '73 so far. I predict Dave's Picks #39 will be a '60s show and Dave's Picks #40 will be a '90s show. BTW, thanks for 3 '80s shows last year....I really mean it!

Hey Dave,
Call me retarded, but I still can't wrap my head around Philly 84' or W&M 78' being worthy of release. Are you stringing us along to spread out releases for 20 years? What next a Vinnie show 90-95?

Time to get real a majority of your buyers grew up on 80's Dead. C'mon give us the hot stuff! Start with Starlight 82' and make it sound alive, like a Miller mix.

Stop with 78' the year sucks. Worcester 83' may be best show of year, but what an awful mix. How about 2nd best show of sucking year 83'?

Are you catering to Tour Heads or just fooling us. If you need help picking shows I am available.

Starlight 82' instead of another throw away release.

Also this B,.S. about I don't care about Set lists, I care how they play. Well Merryweather 84' beats the heck out of Philly 84'.

Dave, are you an actual Head or just a talking head?

What an incredible show. Best concert of the Dead or any other bank I ever saw. I don't udnerstand why Dick's Picks or someone else hasn't turned this into a CD for sale. They were on fire that night and the list is ridiculous. And Levon Helm lead off for them, which was pretty incredible in it's own right.

Hi, Has there been any thought to a commercial release (Dave's Picks or Road Trips series) of either (or both) of the shows from New Orleans September 18-19, 1980? The Sunday show (9/19) was the single greatest performance of anyone I've ever seen in 50 years of attending rock shows. Phenomenal. That little run was something they squeezed in between the Warfield and Radio City Music Hall runs that produced the Reckoning and Dead Set releases. If I remember correctly, because that tour was being recorded for commercial release, tapers were discouraged from recording, so the only versions I've heard from these shows have been of middling quality at best. Thanks.

Hello. I am new to Dead.net, not at all new to the Dead. I really enjoy that Reckoning record and would love to find more acoustic Dead. Does anyone have recommendations? Thanks, and sorry if this has been requested more than once.
