    Art project

    I have an idea for an art project and I am wondering where is the best place to ask for tape covers with hand written set lists and / or cool drawings that aren't being used. I would 100% pay for shipping.

    Rock on!

    I think that ship has sailed
    It was always frowned on to sell the tapes, to put it no more strongly. However, Jerry's been gone these 25 years, and a lot of once-precious tape collections, by inheritance or general attrition, have ended up in the hands of people who aren't in Deadhead culture and can't reasonably be expected to operate based on it. I'm more startled that she found someone to pay money for it, given how often Heads are offering up their tapes for free after they've gone digital, and on this very site too.

    Is there a policy against…

    Is there a policy against selling tapes? I have seen a couple of collections show up on CL and this week there is an extensive collection in an estate sale in Massachusetts.
    I contacted the CL person and asked them not to sell but to offer up as free. They were nice and had some rosy BS to say about her parents giving her the tapes but she didnt want any more and was selling them. Alas, she did.
    Being of the trading era i think its wrong to sell them and there may be an official dead policy or a place to report?

    Shows (CDs) available

    I suggest that you get hooked up with a bit torrent client. This will allow you to download shows from bit torrent sites, such as bt.etree.org.

    You can contact me at cb.bandrofcheck@comcast.net and I will guide you through the process of setting up.

    Be Safe, Fare Well,

Just bought a cassette for the purpose of listening to the Grateful Dead, more specifically live shows. Whether it's soundboard or otherwise, I'd love to hear from anyone looking to carry on the tradition of tape trading. Awaiting some purchased tapes and looking to sort them out and find which ones are good quality. Get ahold of me if you're interested. I'd love to share the wealth

Greetings Brothers and Sisters, Have gone through many cycles of trading over the years.... Am at a place where I have recently gifted and released most of the CD's I've owned as well as much of the mp3 quality GD that has come along in the digital realm. I now am focusing on cultivating some sweet GD on Hard Drive in .wav format and am seeking SBD shows in the 1987 - 1991 range (1987 - 1989 most wanted) in a higher quality format. Those years were some of the highlights of my personal GD experience and would love to relive some of those sweet musical times... So, was wondering if there was someone out there that is up for a Hard Drive swap? If so private message me and we can get into more details including some of what I have to offer... What is most desirable is to find someone that has a nice chunk of music (500GB) to offer vs. individual shows as I have quite a lot of high quality GD from other years + Furthur years I can offer in trade. In Song, Brother A

Hey,I saw a few posts from people looking for tapes. I have lots of tapes, over 3000 or so. I have been converting, mixing, and putting on CD and FLACs. I would to send some out to you all who are looking. I am going to PM the last 2 people looking for tapes. I am going to try and get a list together. These are either low gen AUD or SBD. Right now I have 1993 and 1995 available. This is a work in progress. I also have some 1970's up for grabs as well as some Betty Boards.

The Dead played there in the 60's, I saw a copy on Ebay years ago. It would later become a Burlesque House (Tom Waits mentions it in 2 diff. songs) and I went there a few times in my youth. Do you by chance have a copy of this show?

Hi,I have about 60 or so JGB tapes that need to find a good home. Pictures of the tapes can be seen on my blog (I didn't have time to list them all but the pictures visually show the dates ok) I am looking for GD tapes in return. I am looking for some specific shows and could send you a list - or you could find the list on: www.deadtapecollector.tumblr.com My email address is on that site, and I check that more frequently so PM me if interested in setting something up. Cheerio!

So nice to see people who still want to trade tapes here. It's such a nostalgic throwback to a time when people used to trade tapes without a conditions or throwing in favors. Not caring so much about the quality, just wanting the show for whatever reason. Believe it or not it's the first time since 2007 since I've seen it. Hoo-ray for a simpler, more innocent time - just 25 years ago from performance to collection.

Long shot, I don't even remember seeing tapers at the show, but hoping there's one out there somewhere...just would like to take a trip down memory lane, don't recall a lot about the show, except possibly a Russian Lullaby and squeaky Jerry acoustic strings. :) 11/16/1984 Jerry & John Kahn State College, PA Would take it in any format. If you have it or know of it, PM me and let's talk!!!!

I have about 250 tapes of GB and JGB shows that I want to give away to people who would appreciate them.About 15 shows are master tapes that I made with a Sony D5. Masters are 1982-1983 other tapes are older. I think its only fair that masters don't go to one person. Only need to pay for shipping.

I haven't thought'bout "The Tapers" in years...I gave up the cassette deck decades ago...But I will NEVER forget all the microphones on poles in the audience... Back in the 70's I vaguely remember the Hells Angels working their way to the front of the crowd and pulling the batteries out of some poor dudes cassette machine and warning him about a few things...Apparently this Cat was like "Mr TAPER" or some name like that...and he had been warned before...I'm thinking Rosevelt Stadium New Jersey...The show after the Big Rain out cancellation...(Now that was a bad scene daddio...LOL) Nothing like hitch hiking while trippin...OR is it Trippin while hitch hiking??? In a thunder storm!!! It's GOOD to be ALIVE!!! Peace Ya'll Mike

and discovered boxes and boxes of tapes that had been thrown in there more or less at random a decade or so ago. It's going to take several bursts of energy to sort them all out. I also found two reels, which I have no idea why I have them, as I have never had a reel-to-reel. One of the Dead at the Hollywood Palladium, one of mixed Dead/Airplane stuff. The only thing I can think is I must have grabbed them at a yard sale, or someone else did thinking Hey, Mary Will Like This... I suspect there are still quite a few of us with tapes, even though we rarely play them. One thing that makes me really happy though is that the technology is now such that you can connect your cassette deck to your laptop with nothing fancier than a plain old patch cord and digitize your tapes. Whether it makes sense to do this with your music is debatable, as there are almost certainly better versions out there but hey, this is the one you imprinted on. But I've got a boatload of interviews that SERIOUSLY need this, painful as it is to hear myself sounding like a fool all the time. Usually the person I'm talking to doesn't.

A year or two ago I decided that my collection of over 450 tapes was taking up closet space that I wanted back. I had since downloaded digital copies of most of those amazing shows so I knew I would be OK. Dark Star Orchestra was coming to play an outdoor venue in our town and I new they would host a large number of heads at their show. I gathered most of these tapes(I had to keep a few of the most killer masters for me) and toted them to the show I set up around my car the wall cases of tapes with a sign that said FREE, but please be kind to others. Most folks could simply not believe it and repeatedly asked, 'are you sure?'. Many traded stuff for them and I felt real good passing along to the younger heads -their first tapes. Fun, Fun, Fun

even if the most recent batch has been taken, stick around, because now that folks know you're looking they can keep you in mind for future stuff too. Meanwhile, if you're set up to copy CDs and DVDs, look into the Vineyard, which has an amazing range of stuff from all eras. You sign up, copy the disc when it arrives, and send it to the next person on the list.

Hi,I just ran across a large collection of unplayed second generation dead tapes. my neighbor just collects things. he is not a fan of the dead but copied someones tape collection and then put them away and never played them. 119 cassette tapes he say's he copied from a guy that new the deads soundman. I have no idea what he has. the first tape I checked out is labeled shrine 11-09-1967 and is an excellent recording, sounds like a soundboard (I don't hear the audience). after looking on the internet I am confused. the dead.net site says they never played on that date. the internet archive has 7 songs from the next day 11-10-67. the first song on one side (not labeled with side one or two) is "the other one" and is not the version listed as unknown source on the internet archive from 11-10-67. so I have no idea what he has, or how to go about even figuring it out. but they are all unplayed so I thought they might be of interest to the community. let me know if this might be of any interest to anyone. thanks, clint bush I don't visit forums often so if interested just email me directly TennesseeJed12345@att.net

my advise for you Billy, register to different dead related websites, and keep your eyes open. people transfer their shows to different formats and usually give away their tapes to a good home. check craigslist regularly. and if you're lucky here is one link for you,good luck :) http://www.furthur.net/forum/general-discussion/334542-free-cassettes

Hi everyone, I am looking for someone who has this show? I know that Dick' Picks has the triumvirate of Dark Star/The Other One/Lovelight, but I'm looking for the whole show. I'm not looking for a copy of the commercial release. Archive.org has a listing for soundboard, but its gone. Can anyone help out a fellow Head? Thanks!!

Hi, I had a storage drive crash, and I lost all my "30 Days Of Dead" mp3s from 2012 back. If you have Dropbox that would be ideal. Though I'm pretty sure there's other ways to go about it, without further compression of the mp3s. Let me know what works for you. I do have tons of stuff to trade, and can easily upload things to dropbox, or send them another way.

Hi there, I am also looking to start building a collection of old tapes. My teenage son has recently taken an interest in my old tapes and vinyl (I am of course trying to encourage this interest) I only have 15 tapes in my current collection. I am not picky (beggers cant be choosers) I am looking for any year, any brand of tape (maxell, tdk), aud, sb, fob, any gen, etc. If any kind soul has any extras or duplicate tapes laying around that they would be willing to part with, please let me know. I am willing to pay for shipping & handling. I thought I'd ask here first rather than on eBay or CList. PM if you like Thanks, Mr Doots

Looking to get back into trading but I have none of my old tapes and virtually nothing on CD that isn't an authorized release. Willing to do blanks plus postage to anyone willing to set me up with anything they have. I am even willing to do extra blanks plus postage for your effort if that is ok. I am spoiled by the official releases so SBD and high quality is really what I am looking for. Once I have some shows I will share them with anyone who asks. I am partial to 1974, 77, 89, 90 - 94 but I would love anything anyone would be willing to burn for me. I have a stack of 100 CD-R's sitting here ready to send out just PLEASE let me know! Thanks!
