    Does anyone have contact…

    Does anyone have contact information for the photographer who was shooting family portraits at Laguna Seca in 1988? Today my daughter, who was three years old at those shows, mentioned that the post-show scene at those gigs is one of her earliest memories. I’d love to get a print of the photo that was taken by that photographer. Thanks!

    Hey 1st Show!

    Thanks for the assist; May 22 1977 is the one. Listening to it right now. You know what's wrong with that show? NOTHING! ;-) Many of the tunes played that night are easily top picks for me.

    In Deadbase X, the lists for all 30 Sunrises:
    5-12-77 Estimated>Sunrise>Terrapin
    5-22-77 Good Lovin'>Sunrise>Estimated
    1-11-78 Samson>Sunrise>Terrapin
    4-11-78 Fire>Sunrise>Terrapin
    That's all that have either an Estimated or a Terrapin on either side.
    So maybe that 5-12-77?
    Cheers

    Looking for a certain 1978 show with Sunrise > Estimated

    A long, long time ago, when we listened to tapes, a friend of mine had this great show from (I think) May 1978. Here is what (I think) I remember:
    Terrapin > Sunrise > Estimated, which were mind-blowing. Probably Donna's best Sunrise; will bring you to tears.
    I'm fairly sure that Terrapin went straight in to Sunrise. But I'm sure that Sunrise went straight in to Estimated. I don't think it was edited that way.
    They were playing these tunes a lot at that time, but I've combed through the archives and just can't locate a show with this sequence; my memories may be at fault.

    Thanks!

I would love to hear any stories about anyone funding their tour by selling shirts, stories from shirt creators, any crazy Dead bootleg story (favorite shirt, shirts tha led to introductions, crazy adventures, etc... Feel free to send me any pictures, stories, ideas, suggestions, etc.. Thanks! Peace.

    FOTD supercut version

    I heard a supercut of Friend of the Devil (I think on Deadcast). It recut the song using live clips from their earliest version to the later years so you could hear the evolution of the song. I can't find it or remember where it's found. Anyone know?

    James "Blood" Ulmer setlists?

    Hey. Seems pretty quiet around here, but I'll give it a shot.

    On a hard disk full of music data I have at home, I came across a James "Blood" Ulmer show that I'd torrented probably over ten years ago, but for whatever reason, had never unpacked.

    The directory was simply titled

    ulmer2_27_86

    There is no info file and I'm not familiar enough with his music to figure out the song titles.
    Various Googling strategies have not even turned up the existence of this concert.
    I'm starting to wonder if the date may be listed incorrectly.

    If anyone can't point me in the direction of some info about this show, I'd be... grateful.

    Thanks.

Cosmicbadger, thanks, I found the Lost Sailor/Saint of Circumstance I was looking for. I should have known it was one of the shows in my own back yard, The Spectrum in Philadelphia. I used setlists.net, searched all 145 instances of Lost Sailor and picked the shows that looked familiar. Wouldn't you know it was the last one? http://www.archive.org/details/gd86-03-24.naks.braverman.16746.sbeok.sh… Thanks again!

somewhere on some tape, there is a classic Bill Graham moment in which he berates the howling-for-an-encore crowd about the fact that it is always about "Moooooorrre!" and never about "Thanks!" It has always been one of my favorite bits, to say nothing of words to live by, but I'm looking for the specific show and if possible the verbatim quote. I'm thinking East Coast, late '70s, but I'm guessing here. I got this tape when I only had a few, and now it's lost in the pile and I don't know which one it is. Many thanks!

Here you go Marye,I knew Instantly what show you are talking about. It is the rant in between encores at FIllmore East 04-29-71 The crowd claps and chants MORE!... Bill Graham interrupts the crowd. "" Will you hold 1 second.. 1 second please. We don't know when were going to have the next opportunity for the people that work here. So for us to them we want to thank them. There is a question that I can't answer. Is there anyone really like the Grateful Dead? It's an amazing amazing group. I would like to give credit where credit is due. One of the ushers before I think wrapped it all up. You can use sentences and sentences. Someone was talking about music and this usher said, "The Grateful Deaad aren't just music, they are an environment!" which is the most beautiful thing I have ever heard! So if you want to...if you want....For 1 time if you want to applaud fine, but instead of yelling more and more. Why don't you try sometime, thinking the musicians are here and hanging out. Leave it up to them and don't be assholes all the time. Just let it hang. Leave it up to them. OKAY!.... more more more more. Just hang out!"" I had to listen to it a few times. I think I got all the words correct. enjoy! Let the music flow.... Deadtaper

Bill Graham was a wonderful and visionary man. I was lucky enough be a blue coat for a time. He was alway's very aware what you were seeing was real history. Not just an event being seen for the moment ,but a life changing historical situation that would only grow stronger with time. Hence his frustration at times with those that he felt didn't see it at the time. He also knew you had to get into the moment for it to become history and sink deep into your soul. He knew there was a balance. I remember him talking with us before a day on the green show featuring some rather hard rock bands - who shall remain nameless - about respecting that the people that come to see the show deserve the utmost respect, that they are here because of the music and one should not prejudge them, but be diligent about making sure it was a good enviornment for them to enjoy - the music. It was very powerful coming from him and something I have never forgotten. He was and is a great man in every sense of the word and shall be missed by all who knew him and many more that did not. pk

That's the studio version of Terrapin Station from the album 'Terrapin Station'. The producer was responsible for that one- trying to make it large and grandiose because it was considered such an 'epic' song. Just from the studio album in 1977. DSO isn't an orchestra. They simply reinact historical shows from the Grateful Dead repetoire. They don't have any means beyond what the Grateful Dead did making music on stage. I do recommend trying to see them when you can. They do a great job making the music, energy and dancin' live on. .......And there were days I know when all we ever wanted was to learn and love and grow.

Not sure where to post this, but I'm looking for show recommendations from '81-'86 and '91-'95 as I have very little from these eras and would like to know about any gems from those years.

here The liner notes say it was made in Venezuela and recorded at Rick's Cafe in Casablanca, which will probably come as a surprise to Deadbase. The song list is enough of a mishmash that it doesn't seem likely to be a full show per se. How does it sound?

My first show was in 1969 at a club, I think The Boston Tea Party (they changed names often in those days.) Opening act was Bonzo Dog Band, middle act was Doc Watson, then the Dead. Am I remembering this right? I've been googling, and find info on Bonzo and Dead but not Doc. A great show, if my wavering memory serves.

A friend sent me a song "Grateful Dead - Eggshells.mp3", its a live recording, and not that great quality recorded, i found the lyrics: http://vagalume.uol.com.ar/grateful-dead/eggshells.htmland here: http://moemoemoemoe.blogspot.com/#112925168409278437 but i cant find the song in the songlist on this site therefore i was wondering if anyone has some more information about it (is it really by the grateful dead, does it maybe have another name, where, when and with who is it recorded, and is it an "official" recording or recorded by someone from the audience) Any information is appreciated, thanks alot

I've sure never heard of this song or those lyrics. They don't appear to be in the Annotated Lyrics. I'd be curious to learn more also.

Well, Wander, when I came up empty I decided to ask Alan Trist of Ice Nine, the Dead's publishing company. He searched his databases, he searched his memory, and he too says he's never encountered this before. So I think we know pretty definitively it's not a Grateful Dead song. Wonder whose it is?

I have a copy of that 4 lp set "Good Lovin"...decent sound quality & probably recorded in the late 70s. Definitely a collector's item for lovers of vinyl & good old grateful dead! There are several other LP bootlegs from the 70s in my collection from the days before widely available tapes of live shows...how times have changed!Jay
