...some new Duane from SBD masters? Yes sir, please. I've recently entered honeymoon periods with Radiohead, Rush, and - of all things, Doom Metal(?) - Khemmis, so Tuscaloosa and the RTR box still sit unmolested in shrinkwrap. That phenomenal cover for the ABB release would make a rich poster; as well, the bonus Mtn.Jam @ 45 min. from the Warehouse just eclipses that magnificent beast from Ludlow's.
Okay. On Monday, our very own NCDead summarily referenced a purported comment by Gans & Lambert about the next box set on their Sunday show "Tales from the Golden Road" (7/21). After I made inquiries in all the familiar e-places, this response was posted by well-known participant HighThyme in the Dead community over at SHF:
"During last week's Tales from the Golden Road, David Gans said he just got the email for the August 1 Meet-Up at the Movies featuring the 6/17/91 Giants Stadium show, which notes that David Lemieux will announce the upcoming box set during the intro, and Gary Lambert replied "Very good. And I think, and I think, it's related to, uh, that Giant, that Giants Stadium show may have some, uh, some role in that, but I'll say no more for now. I'll let Mr. Lemieux do the talkin'." So take what you will from that."
So there's that.
So, are we thinking this is going to be a 91 box? How many shows do think we will get?
Thanks for the info.
DV - I don't know. Later years open the possibility to multi-media releases, which apparently serve the multitude well, but I only managed half a show of the old "So Many Roads" box before shelving it … I simply can't watch my music (unless its live, of course). That said, it occurred to me that many might simply be playing DVD & Blu-ray releases through speakers w/out video; Summer & Fall '91 are sufficiently special that I'd bite and purchase a new player to shelve above my current CD & TT outfit. For ideas, I'd love to hear how people are playing audio only w/ A/V media. Lord, I've got stacks of DVDs & B-R discs purchased w/ expanded album editions that I've never touched: the Stones, the Tull reissues, et al.
Edit: Wouldn't it be grand if the PNW blueprint were used for a small-to-mid sized box that contemplated multiple years or tours circa '91? As I've said before, the single greatest personal revelation from 30T was the '91 - '95 contingent of shows; I didn't see those coming (esp. Salt Lake City...wow!).
Having reported in elsewhere, Aussie viewers have stated that the box reveal isn't a universal component of the 7pm local shows worldwide. I wonder in which time zone it'll kick in?
Edit: Well that quickly became moot. What a smashing day to be a Head with an expendable $160! I note that my confirmed order hit the in-box 38 minutes before the official email announcement.
The final decade shows in 30T were its greatest surprise, as was the epic 91 show in the Giant's Stadium box; plus that download series show from Pine Knob - fantastic stuff! So this live recreation of a proposed late-career studio effort - that clearly wasn't going to happen given that it took LG's herculean effort to keep the boys focused nearly 20 yrs earlier for Terrapin - is highly anticipated in my consumer demographic of one!
...would be an introduction to the "new release" thread on the IMWAN website to those who aren't familiar, which allowed me to effectively consolidate my regular internet searches for prospective new line-item debits on my credit card...
It doesn't catch everything, but it's consistently proven more comprehensive for rock-related releases than any other single source I've yet found.
Edit: anyone else been really digging Fear Inoculum since release? It was my intro to Tool and I've since scooped up the (admittedly limited) catalogue...remarkable stuff.
I have never read this list before.it's very informative and updated list thanks for sharing
I'm lazy. I've been considering this for a couple years and am ready to get serious (which is about par for the course on my action curve!). So, I sat down to Discogs this past weekend. Umm. I started with the Dead and made it through '70 before my first scream; by December '72 I was disoriented to person, place, and time. Hours later I woke in a cold sweat realizing that it would take me 6.2 years to complete my collection.
Consequently, I'd love to know what you're using. I discovered an endorsement for Collecterz on SHF, and after doing a bit of reading and watching a few video tutorials, it looks really promising - I love the UPC scanner function and the ability to ID a release by putting the disc in the player. Anyone used this, either in download or cloudbased format? If you use something else, let me hear about it: the good, bad, and ugly! Thanks/K
Roll with the changes...
