    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,

    Tapes

    Hello,

    I would be very grateful and blessed if you still have some of the 2000+ tapes you mentioned. I can help with shipping and handling. I own a few shows, but no actual tapes yet.

    This would mean a lot to me. My name is Jeremiah and I am from upstate NY.

    I look forward to speaking with you and seeing if you even have one or two, to help me start my tape journey :)

    Thank You - With Love,

    Jeremiah

    Famous Tallahassee Taper

    Hey all,

    Was listening to an piece on the Sirius/XM GD channel a few weeks back. One of the folks they interview was a notable taper located in Tallahassee, FL. Kind surpirsed me cause I live in Tally and I had no idea we had a celebrity taper in our midst. I totally missed the guys name. Anyone know who this is???

    Thanks!

Hey Now,Been on here today reading all the posts about people having problems with downloading files, and using Lossless instead of MP's to get a true sound balance, and files not loading. I was thinking, what ever happened to tape trees? I wanted to make the jump to digital but its too time consuming vs. spinning tapes. The amount of tapes I have are in the thousands. I use 2 Sony TC KE500S single well decks, with monster cable feeds. So, Hunter, if you read this. If there is anyone who wants to do a tape tree or vine let me know. I would be more than able to assist with the project. Maybe a best of '95 or something like that. Just a thought for all the people having problems with this digital realm. Let the music flow..

Ripping and burning a WAV CD takes about 10 minutes total vs the 90 minutes it takes to do a tape, so don't use time as an excuse, deadtaper!!! I don't do FLAC either, WAV sound is good enough for me. Come check out the vineyard and start collecting some higher sound quality shows!!!

In 2004, The Dead posted one song from each show on the tour on the website for download. I just had a recent hard drive crash and lost mucho GB of live music. (I was going to backup, I swear). Most of these songs I had burned to CD, and I only need the last four songs on the tour. Can anybody point me to a download site to grab these four songs. I would prefer the unedited versions, as e-tree has a (dead) torrent of edited files. Thanks much.

I wish to Inform the Deadhead community that my Best Friend in the entire world as passed and any fellow heads that would know him (and there were many, many heads)should know that this happened, particularily Tony in Portland that i do not know how to contact but I saw at the 2004 show there with the Dead. Andy was a model deadhead in his belief system or principals. Jerry would of have been proud to call him friend , he never wanted to be a typical fan or hassle anyone at anytime. He was my music partner we went to so many shows together , the ones on my profile is a small sampling. His knowledge of the music and the Dead plus numerous other band community was like a library of knowledge , The vault people could of used Andy. The following is his Obit and the DEADHEADS worldwide weather you knew him or not, should heed to his passing. His story is 30 years plus and amazing. It would take more space than I'm provided to tell the story from beginning to end. I have been given his music collection , which is quite extensive in tapes as well as CD's , Probably more than 3000 pieces or more. I will be cataloging this collection of live shows and all. The following is the OBIT , My Tears have flown for three days now since I found out. Yesterday was the big day for the furneral and being with his family. I have known Andy since we were 15 years old. John Andrew "Andy" Vojtko John Andrew "Andy" Vojtko of Libertyville Visitation for John Andrew "Andy" Vojtko, 45, will be from 1 p.m. until the time of the services at 2 p.m. Saturday, June 28, at Holy Cross Lutheran Church, 29700 N. St. Mary's Road, Libertyville, with Pastor Robert Davis officiating. Born Aug. 18, 1962, in Libertyville, he passed away Wednesday, June 25, 2008. Andy had lived in the Libertyville-Mundelein area all his life. He was a 1980 graduate of Libertyville High School, received an associates degree from the College of Lake County and attended Illinois State University. He was a charter member of Holy Cross Lutheran Church in Libertyville and was employed as a cook at Winchester House for many years. Andy enjoyed music, model trains, the outdoors, various pets and cooking. Surviving are his parents, Gerald and Delores Vojtko of Libertyville; two sisters, Jane (Charles) Binning of Cornville, Ariz. and Lynne (Darren) Rogers of Wauconda; and his favorite nephew and niece, Ethan and Brianna Rogers. Memorial contributions can be made to your favorite charity. Arrangements were made by Burnett-Dane Funeral Home, Libertyville, 847-362-3009.

well hello all, I'm new here on the site, I was lucky to see 2 shows back in the 90s, Chicago's Soldier Field show, Saturday, June, 19th, 1993 what a 1st show for me,, a big bolt of lightning hit down right behind the stage veiw just outside the stadium, it came right down thru the orange foggy haze just as the band started to warm up,everyone felt it, I felt it, I was a very big fan from that show on, i also seen the very last show at Buckeye Lake, in Oh, 1994, i always wanted to get a copy of these taped shows i always noticed the taper section, but i never was lucky to meet anyone who taped, I wish i could have, if i only new then how much i would enjoy listening to whole shows later in life, and how much relaxation it would bring me,, i would have been right there at the show,(,any show within driving distance 2 or 3 days,) with my mike pole up,taping everything I could,, well hindsights,, any how, i am so interested in starting to collect and share tapes or recordings. I know this is somthing that is frowned on as of late by the high ups, but as i remember from being at the shows the tapers were a big part of it,, almost as the members of the band wanted to put on a great show for not only the audiance but also the tapers, now it seems from what i read that the HighWhigs are not as into fans sharing, they want to be the only kid at school with a big great tasting peice of Grateful Deadalicious, and there chewing hard and lip smacking,, but they dont have enoughto share with the class funless you have 99.95, well anyways same ole story, im really wanting to start getting some shows to listen to and share, i really really love listening to whole shows, i was in a motercycle accident last year i still am not walking, but i will someday, and i have a lot of time to listen, i am a Locamotive Engineer by trade, but im on medical leave right now, if there is anyone who might have some extra time to help me get started with a few recordingings so i would have somthing to trade with others when obtaining i would be so so "grateful" and i will try to make it up to u with some of my music thats related you might not have my email is wharf_rat@yahoo.com im Craig, thanks my freinds,,

not sure who you're calling names up there, but hey, this is the official Grateful Dead site and we do allow trading of shows that are not commercially released. I'd suggest paying a visit to The Vineyard and getting some ideas. Meanwhile, feel free to head over to the Gainful Employment topic and post about being a locomotive engineer. Which, I suspect, is a dream job for a lot of us.

Hello, Marye didnt mean any offence to the people making the money, perhaps the highwhig comment was a little bit offensive! sorry, if you were offended by my lingo, its theres to make money with, and thats fine, its the bands and the managements hardwork, i was refering to sites like internet archives, i herd that they used to let people trade the soundboard tapes and all, and then they took some of the live taped shows off recently ,someone made a comment about Phil being responsible for putting some of it back on, but im sure not about all of it! its changed alot in the last few years now that live shows are sold for a dollar a song,with all the mp3 podcasting and all, i understand it if they feel they have lost millions, they probably have, but there was a strong statement made if i remember correctly that it was ok to tape and trade for non profit and as long as they werent commercially released, and im glad thats the way it still is!! i hope it stays that way as long as it can!!i would like to get some recordings of whole shows for myself to listen to and trade,Marye, i know you work alot with the customer service from your posts, i did shell out the $100.00 for the Winterland 73' box set and im very happy to have it, it sounds great, they did alot of nice work with it,its somthing to hear how great the band sounded at that set of shows! im sure that most fans would love pay to have them do that mastering work on other live music box set,i will be in line, it sounds to good to pass up! 2 track or not, it sounds better than most any recording of any live or studio,music ive herd its so stereophonic,if thats the correct term, but my disc 2 "track" "Bertha" pops and cracks,like it has a defect, there was glue all over most of the disc like they were put in the box's before it dried, and i did get most of it off easily with no damage, i would like to get my disc 2 replaced, i cant seem to get ahold of anyone though, well, like i said Marye, i wanst calling anyone out to hurt feelings, i was in the wrong,, i take it back if i did offend,, i just want to see the live recordings made by the fans stay free traded, hopefully it will, as for being a Locomotive Engineer its a great job, i had to give up alot of things i loved for it,, lifestyle wise, you can probably imagine, to be safe for all,, i have somewhat of an understanding with the Wharf Rats,,, you do see alot of nice things on the rails, sunrises, sunsets, you experiance alot of things that can be pretty sad also! its life!! and Death!! for everything! hopefully it balances out! i love to listen to my Grateful Dead on the ipod 160gig on the 200mi 12hr trips, well hope i set everything ok again! i dont mind being called out!! i was in the wrong!!, hope were ok! im a big mouth bass sometimes. talk to you later, thanks for the advice!

and as to that bad Bertha disc, email the particulars to josh dot leopard at iventa dot com, and he should get things straightened out pretty fast. Though last I heard they were still waiting for the replacement discs. Let's just say you're not alone on that one. As for the ins and outs of the taper scene, archive, etc., I try to stay out of it. Here we're just muddling along trying to do what works for everyone, and while there are definitely rough spots it mostly works!

Ursa Minor my e-mail off group: funbebop@yahoo.com please put in the heading via dead.net or e-mail me here with your off group e-mail I wish that for just one time, You could stand inside my shoes, and for just that one moment, I could be you - Bob Dylan, Positively 4th St.

Hey Y'all! Not sure if this is "against the rules" here in "official" tape trading land, but I am going for it anyways. I have about 50 DAT tapes (mostly SBD's - each tape is either a "whole show" or 2 sets from different shows or some combination of both) ranging from 1966 to 1995 and mostly 198?'s and 199?'s. So, this is A LOT of great music (probably about 80 hours worth). I still listen to the magic of "the boy's" but simply do not have the time or the drive to do anything with these DAT's and would love to see them continue to circulate. These are DAT's that came through some "close to home" channels when I lived in Northern Cali! Here is my offer.... I am looking for someone who actually has a functional well maintained DAT machine who will take these tapes and make it their duty to make them into digital files / CD's to spread throughout the land. In return, I would simply like to receive a CD copy of certain select shows as you do them over time. I realize that this is quite a commitment for someone and that it would have to be someone who is good at following through with a project like this. One way of looking at it is, with 50 tapes, you could treat yourself to 1 new DEAD DAT dessert a week for almost a whole year! It would simply take downloading the show to HD and then burning some CD's. Let's get creative and work out the details! Please email me directly at Antonio@SoundingSpirit.com to respond. Thanks, Antonio (^_^)

I have well over 1000 hours of GD, ABB, Springsteen, jazz, SCI, Dylan, etc on tape, and now I have a deck that converts tapes to digital. I don't want to throw all these tapes away - bad for the environment, and a waste of years of meticulously collected music. I'm willing to give these away in bulk, and all you have to do is send postage and SASE - sort of like the old "blanks and postage" deal except you don't even have to send blanks!Just today, I listened to 5/6/89 and 5/4/42. Last night it was fall of 1970 and fall 1973. And I want all this great music to find good homes. I know most of us are digital collectors now, but if you are interested, email me at chip@chipwithrow.com. "Folk rock for groovin families!" myspace.com/chipwithrow chipwithrow.com

Hi, I would really like to make a serious Dead and JGB collection. I have started about 8 years ago when I was in high school. Yes I am young I am 26. Some people think I am too young to be a Dead Head. But Jerry has really inspired me and made me the man I am today. What I really want is to find a really big database of music I can put on my computer and convert to mp3s or burn to cds.. Youd think that with computers and fast download speeds you could just download gigabites of shows... Archive.org the only thing you can download are audience recordings. I really like sugarmegs but its hard to put in all the tracks for each show. I am using nero and thats not really working well... Does anyone have any ideas?? I would really appreciate. tphuber@gmail.com

I am looking for a great sound board copy of this great show. The "Dew" is absolutly amazing--worth while on its own. I have about 250 shows on tape but most don't want tape and I don't have a digital converter (yet). So I guess I will have to do a B&P. If someone is interested, you can contact me at pwyatt30@yahoo.com. Take Care!

Wanted: reliable person with copious quality shows (preferably without gaps) on CD who wants to trade. I have a pretty extensive collection, mostly from 70's era, but am always looking to fill some holes (right now the Northwestern 11/1/73 is much desired) and acquire more Brent era Dead. PM with your email and we can exchange lists.

Right now I've been borrowing all the live Dead I can from my limited resources, but my hunger is insatiable and growing still. I am looking for suggestions of shows that are extremely spacey/psychedelic/out there. Jams that stretch on and on and take you to another planet, primarily through the instruments and not so much through vocals. Shows that just bleed electric acid vibes through your body and mind and leave you changed. Can anyone give suggestions of particular shows I should seek out?

Well a lot of your descriptions are subjective to the listener. So, with that being said some of my suggestions might not be exactly what you are looking for but here you go: 1. 2-14-70 Dick's Pick TOO and Dark Star are absolutely killer and spacey as hell. 2. the Field Trip 8-27-72. For me this show is a melding of their really psychedelic stuff and the jazzy influence of '73, but there is some great psych-rock here. 3. Fillmore West 1969: the Complete Recordings. If you can get your hands on this box set, you will be set because this is their pinnacle of acid rock and killer stuff. In my opinion 68-through really '71 is the height of their acid era. So if that is what you really want then you can't miss. Once you branch out into late 70's and all the way until the end, you will find a much varied band that can rock-out on any tune on any given night. Not to say they weren't great in the 60's and early 70's (my second favorite year is 1970, after '77), they were--just different and in a good way. Happy hunting!!

The Grateful Dead Movie Soundtrack is also phenominal. 6 cd's. The best of the best. 1974 and the sound is awesome. Winterland at it's glorious splendor, a magic place you know. Don't go without this in your collection. It's is a bargain also, and mastered in glorious HDCD, which does make a difference. Crank it up and you will feel like you are there, and being there is better than anywhere,it's Winterland!

Might want to give 6/16/74 a spin. 3 set show, outdoor venue, Wall Of Sound, and some rather interesting excursions. If you're not up for all 3:58:21 of it, focus on the Eyes>Big River, Playin and then Truckin>Nobody's>Wharf>GDTRFB. Don't let the early tech glitches fool you, it all gets sorted out. You can find it here: http://www.archive.org/details/gd74-06-16.sbd.fink.17701.sbeok.shnf Conversation is always more interesting than recitation, so speak your mind and not someone else's.

The wall of sound era is amazing!!! Especially when Phil plugs that quadrophonic bass in and drops some of those sweet "Phil bombs". Jerry's soloing is also sublime and really mellow. He really drives the band to a different level, and they take that ride all the way through the decade (especially '77). And aren't Keith and Bobby the first rhythm devils??? :)

if anyone has this i'd be interested because you know it has to be good if Dick just puts 'unique' for the other one jam.

Been searching for 20+ years for SBDs of the following: Dead: 1/10/79 Nassau Coliseum (according to lemieux is not even in vault and I assume given to brent for practice) - my 1st show dark star, st. stephen... well now you know why I have been hard core for 30 yrs now! 10/12/84 Augusta - I have the circulating version with static throughout 1st set and aud for ujb and on in 2nd set. Anyone have full show SBD... one of the most killer dews ever. JGB: 2/13/80 Palace Theatre, Albany - night before organic chem test and lets just say I was certainly studying chem... An amazing performance and one that I have never seen circulate. I have an extensive list of SBDs so happy to trade. Thanks
