    Your collection

    Hey Maxrod101 I’m new to the forum but just saw your post about wanting to send your quite massive collection on to a new home and it caught my attention. I’m a relative newcomer to the dead head realm and am always looking for new shows to expand my horizons. I live not far from NYC and could handle a pick up. Happy to figure out a barter arrangement or offer you digital copies of your collection as I rip them. This is of course all assuming it hasn’t been spoken for already. Thanks for your time!

    Hello Again

    Hi Dstache, and Happy New Year! Some of us still around, still deadicated, and still grateful for all the bounty shared on this site. Perhaps we should move this discussion to the Vineyard rather than the tapers section? I still have some vines that ended up with me when no one else requested them and could post in those vines to let people know they are available. And I would def be interested in the MTX shows if you vine them. Have not been to the Post Office for awhile but I think I remember how to do it!

    looking for a new owner for my almost 1000 GD shows on 3300 cds

    this post is not for the faint hearted,I was an early participant here from way back when Mr. Hunter was the webmaster..bout 30 trips around the sun give or take ago. I want my big ass collection of dead shows on cds to find a good home. These shows are Auds,Soundboards and about the best versions out there,no commercial releases.all done by the hands of the fans and thier decks. Ive known most of the tapers from back in the early days. These discs have been well kept in paper sleeves labeled and organized and stored in cabinets for cds and thats how i want them to stay. list of course is avail and pics , but I dont want to piece meal this collection out. is this possible?..would someone want this? is it all about hard drives, terabytes and streaming now? if not you maybe someone you know? shipping would be humongous.would have to be a pick up thing.im in the NYC area.Im not looking to sell the music of course. i Acquired most of this thru vines and the gratitude of the people who spread it far and wide. but with the huge amt of media put into it and storage cabinets maybe a barter thing or rtn of it on a hard drive..all open for discussion, ..also have hundreds of ratdog and PLQ shows but thats another project... PM me if this not beyond yours or someone you knows wildest Dead dreams through another day.

    Live tapes

    Hey everyone!
    I’m new on this forum but was raised listening to the dead; just moved out and I only have one dead tape. I have a little money to pay for shipping and tapes if anyone has some! I’m looking for live tapes not tapes of the albums. I can do local pick up in Santa Cruz area. Thanks!

    Hi MaryE! Good suggestion! If people are interested in a vine, I would be willing to start one (some). I am in the process of acquiring some of the more recent Hunter's Trix matrices. Reply here if interested and let me know whether CD WAV format or DVD FLAC format works better for you.

I had an amazing guy from a Dead Facebook group recently gift me many JGB cd’s that were all from tapers and I am OBSESSED with the sound. I mean I’ve been listening to the Dead since I was a little kid but to hear the rawness of this sound just takes it to another level! When they kick into a song and the crowd erupts I can close my eyes and picture myself standing there in person. I’m sure many of you know what I’m talking about and it’s a bit embarrassing I’m so late to the game. If anyone has ANY old tapes I would be happy to work something out. JGB is incredible but I would die to hear some tapes of some Dead shows. If you’d like to email me that would probably be best. Cheers :-) billstiner@gmail.com

I'm looking for fancy, hand drawn or early computer Grateful Dead graphics J-cards (tape covers) for this show. If you have what I'm looking for and you don't want to part with these J-cards would it be possible to take good pictures and send them to me or flat bed scan them and email them to me. Or can you recommend a computer program for cassette tape covers, or send a copy to me? The ones I have are very plain, printed ones with no graphics or color at all.

Hello, do you still have your tapes available? I would love to take them off your hands. If so we can talk about more details if you email at gulatherogress@gmail.com

I have gathered some tapes, and I would love the chance to expand my collection. I'm only 25 and I hope to one day pass on whatever tape collection I mange to gather to the next generation of heads who haven't been born yet.

My collection is around 600 tapes at this point, and I want it to keep growing. My girlfriend and I are slowly organizing and cataloging the tapes we have. I have many head friends in the area that I share with as well.
If anyone still has their collection of dead tapes that they would like to add to this collection, which I hope will continue to be passed from older heads to younger, please hit me up.

The aesthetic of the tapes and the connection to the band and older generations of heads is very special. I would really love to preserve this feeling and connection for myself, my family, my friends, and for all the many heads who have yet to be born or converted yet.

I will cover the shipping cost. Just email and I will get back to you as soon as I can.

about 30 years ago, I had a cassette with, among other things, a demo of Throwing Stones. It was just Bobby singing and playing a clean sounding electric guitar. I no longer have that cassette. Does anyone know where I can find a cd or mp3 of it?

I'm also trying to get some tapes. I know that every show ever is on archive online and on the app, but I love tapes.
I have an old truck with a tape deck, and recently acquired a decent tape deck and receiver to enjoy the tapes to the fullest.

These tapes will be enjoyed by a total of 11 deadheads ranging in age from 19-27.

Please help out a generation of young heads stuck in west Texas. Very little dead love in these parts.

If you want to work something out for the tapes please email me.

I live in the Northern California Bay Area and am moving down south. I have 100+ live cassette tapes of Live Dead. Most of them from the 1980s, some SBD, some Audience and some edited DeadHeadHours. I would like to find a new home for them where they will be appreciated. You can contact me at: michaeljcordero@yahoo.com

I am curious about this and am sure it exists in written form somewhere, I just can't seem to find it. What is the official policy for trading in shows that have been officially released? Specifically, I am wondering about the ones that were released officially but are out of print. Seems to me that if they are not for sale currently, we would not be costing the band money by trading those shows. Just curious what the official policy is on this.

I have two full cases of Dead bootlegs all of good to very good quality, for cassette tapes. Were you still looking for tapes?

Otis, I am for sure! Sent a pm but not sure it went through. Would be happy to pay shipping etc. Just getting into the community and am loving it. :) Would give the tapes a good home where they would be listened to often. Thanks for the offer. pvanzile@gmail.com

During my tape trading days I made tape cover art for almost all of my 600 tapes. This activity was --and still is -- a big part of my life journey; my identity. I would NEVER throw away my tapes!

I wrote an article about it a couple years back for Relix. Here it is: https://relix.com/articles/detail/tape/

And here are some examples:

I am scolding myself for commercializing this post, but just so you know. I sell these on puzzles, shirts, mugs and posters. Please head over to Shmogger's Den to check them out! (You can also find me sometimes on Shakedown Street.)

Anybody have any recommendations on software for converting Flac, Shn, etc... files and then burn them DAO (disc at once)? I used EAC, Feurio, CDwave, on a PC before I converted to a Mac.

Grateful for any help,

Years ago, one of the bootlegs I had, had a guy very distinctly saying, "Hey eh, this is great eh?" during a low music point. I'd love to hear that show again. Anyone have this? My guess is that it would be an 80's show.

Recently was given a couple boxes of dead tapes from a guy who went to shows from 70-90...I don’t think I have interest in converting them and am curious to see if anyone has/willing to pass along some tapes from years I am missing?
I would love to get anything from the 60’s (Warlocks included)
70, 72, 83, 86, 87, 88, 92, 93, 94.

If anyone has any info on where I could get them that would be great. I know I can get them off line but it’s definitely not the same. Thanks in advance for any input!

I am looking for tapes or digital recordings of the 6/5 & 6/6 1982 acoustic shows with Jerry and John Kahn from the South Eugene High School gym.

I was a sophomore at the University of Oregon with my (now) wife. We have great memories of the shows and would like to relive them. There are recordings of the shows on YouTube, but decent digital or tape recordings would be really nice.

Thanks in advance!

Hey Now, family! My online shop, SHMOGGER'S DEN (www.shmoggersden.com) (www.etsy.com/shmoggersden) offers jigsaw puzzles of my old decorated tape covers.

I also have shirts, mugs and posters of my tape cover art from 20+ years ago. Furthur-more, I make the same sort of setlist art with computer graphic design. Shmogger's Den is the only place for tape cover puzzles in the WHOLE WIDE WORLD!

Seeing as how we're all gonna be self-quarantining, what better way to pass the time than with GD-themed puzzles? (Oh yeah, and Phish too!)

On the other hand, puzzles are great for parties, with friends working together on different sections of the puzzle. People stroll by, place a few pieces, and stroll off. The whole group feels a sense of satisfaction when it's done. Will the group finish it before the party favors run out?

Any Shmogger’s Den Puzzle will spark up your living room, and they make UNIQUE GIFTS for your jamband friends or relatives!

Here are some examples of tape cover art / setlist art / song-themed art from www.shmoggersden.com:

Beloved Fellow Tape Traders:

https://www.etsy.com/listing/660157177/puzzle-cow-palace-sf-123176-grat…

Did you decorate your tape covers like this? Do you still have them? I would love to make the really good ones into puzzles and shirts in my shop SHMOGGER'S DEN. (www.ShmoggersDen.com) You will get paid!!

If you have great tape cover art, I would love to see it, and possibly use some for my Etsy/Facebook stores. Seriously, If you loved making "setlist art" on your J-Cards, please get 'em out and show them!

You've held on to your tapes all these years... this can be your unexpected WHY!

Please post them at Faceboom.com/shmoggersden or email me at Shmogger@ShmoggersDen.com. Thanks!

This skull and roses Grateful Dead tape cover t-shirt casts a distinctly Irish hue into your St. Patrick's Day celebrations. Perfect in a pub; best in a bar; great in a glen! Order today to get it before St. Patrick's Day!

This Shmogger's Den Tape Cover art was created circa 1993 and festooned a tape of the legendary 6/7/77 show at Winterland. (Roses added later.)
