    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...

    If the clue fits…

    I’m thinking based on the clue offered for Dave’s 50, specifically the reference to “show (shows…?)” and the timing being right,… leads me to believe the show is the Watkins Glen summer jam and the bonus disc is the sound check. I did some quick math at archive.org and it looks like the show would fit on three discs with about 15 min to spare, and that the sound check would almost fit on one, with the need for last song on the other discs.

    As is well known, there are Owsley tapes for both days and even though widely available (in so so quality) already, this show deserves the official release, plangent process and all. Here’s hoping I’m right on this guess.

    Is it possible to actually have them release a high res cover art file for DP? I have been trying to find that for the latest 48 and well it seems to not be around. Thx

    Frost 10/10/82, I second that pick

    Ill second that pick, and add 10/9/82 for a 2 show release. Both shows were a knockout. 1982, the best year at the Frost. Put it together with 83 & 85 and you would have a great box set.

    Frost Amphitheater, Palo Alto, CA - 10/10/1982

    Figured I might as well put in a vote.

    I would like to recommend the 10/10/1982 for a release.This was my 20th show and I feel it is worthy of a chance at an official release if the source material exists to be turned into a CD that meets Dave's Picks or commercial release requirements.

    Having been there for both shows (9th and 10th) I do know that the playing was quite good both days. The band really seemed to be dialed in by the 10th. A couple of my buddies that were living in San Francisco at the time had snuck into the theater (either the day before or early morning) and wrote "Pummel Us, Phil!" on the stage right about where he would typically stand. Not sure if Phil saw the words or not, but I can tell you he did pummel us both days (check out the Morning Dew from the 9th for a taste of what the 10th had in store). This was also the last time I saw Phil playing a 4 string bass. By my next show (12/26/1982) he had moved to the 6 string.

    All songs are great renditions with some highlights of Loser, Far From Me, Looks Like Rain, China Cat Sunflower > I Know You Rider, Playing In The Band > Crazy Fingers > Lost Sailor > Saint Of Circumstance > Touch Of Grey. Pretty awesome end of first set, then second set before drums. For me the whole show was great and those are a sample of how well they played in California on a sunny day.

    Thanks for any consideration,
    CorkyO

    Dave's pix #48!?

    💀⚡️🥀 I was just awaiting a Dave's Subscription & speculating the next release while looking at my stat sheet I made a few years ago of Dicks Picks & Daves saves when I first subscribed. Anyways I figure 1988 & `89 are little represented in either series as well being only a few shows from the GD "Download series" and only seen on box sets or "Without a Net" in 1990.

    Anyways, so I went show shopping and came up with 6~25~88 @ Buckeye Music Center, Buckeye lake, Ohio. A good single summer show in town with a nice array of classic hits AND some choice cuts from new material soon to be released on a later studio album, 1989's Built To Last.✌️😸

    P.S.~1982 is also a seldom seen official release year.

    Man, this would be nice to see released! One of my all time favorites over the years. Both sets are on fire...Let it Grow>Deal to close the first set is like no other. 2nd set Estimated>Franklins's is one of just a couple of that combo, gorgeous transition. Runner up to this show is 7/10/81. The 2nd set is as good as it looks.

    4/17/71, can't believe this one has not been released yet. My guess is either soon individually or better yet as part of an April '71 box, or series of boxes a la May 77, Spring 90, and (hopefully) June 76.

    I am really digging this show 6/10/1973. I had never heard the complete show, and am hoping it would be released in its entirety. I can image some copy write issues but it would be a winner.

    Good morning, fellow rockers!!!

    2/9/73 is clearly worthy of release, but if I had to pick only one show, it would be 12/5/71, provided a soundboard has been returned to the vault..........

    I am not unaware of the saying that more tears have been shed over wishes granted than wishes denied.......

    Rock on!

    I'm really surprised that 2/9/73 hasn't made it to release yet.
