I finished the 'Long strange trip" documentary and it was fantastic stuff, and surprisingly very emotional especially towards the end. I felt like it was a very honest documentary and It definitely had a dark spin to it.

I got chill bumps several times through the whole documentary. Goh, that was some amazing shit and its something ill probably watch many many times.

I could do without more Nov '77. We really needed 2/26

My next pick would be 1/25/79. A really hot show with very little time left for Keith. Years back it was known this wasn't in the vault, but potentially recently returned.

Next box should be Summer '73

An FYI that a new, complete, mono board of 10/30/80 RCMH hit circulation today. First full sbd of that show

I'll stop by LL tonight and pick it up

I'm in a mid-80's phase right now. Speaking of which, two stands that would make nice releases are the Greek 7/13 and 7/14 '84 and MPP 6/30 and 7/1 '85. (6/30/85 Set 2 was one of my prized SBD tapes in the 80's). The boards we have are real good (but like I've said, that's not a factor in what he's been releasing).

But yeah, I said it here a few weeks ago, Summer '73 needs some love too.

The Dead store has really fallen off the rails a few months ago. None of the digital downloads are up after they pulled all of them for the 77 box set fiasco.

Fun listen so far. First set is pretty standard fare for '72. I was initially worried that Kieth's piano would be nonexistent. You can't even hear him on Cold Rain and Snow. Thankfully his volume increases, but he's still a little too low, imo. This Bird Song is nice. '72 Bird Songs are wonderful.

This Bertha! Almost a train wreck.

Listening to Set 2 of this one tonight. 20 year-old Mitch, with the help of some good ol' LSD, lost his fucking mind during this scary Dark Star. Seemed to be a pretty common experience that night based on those I spoke to after, some of who left the Arena during it

3/24/90 Albany is one of the very best Dead shows that didn't occur in the 70's. It's kinda irritating that the official release of it is scattered amongst a few different releases. Should have released the whole thing in it's entirety along with all the others in the Spring '90 box sets, its the best one of the tour!
Anyway, at least the second set in its entirety is on Dozin' at the Knick. I know I mention that one here every once in awhile, but if you're not familiar with it, get on it, it's on Spotify and all that.

Watched the doc yesterday. Enjoyed it all, but thought the Dead Heads part was best.

Got the Dead Live Ď91, Pine Knob, on the iPod for work. Bruceís piano sounds so good. His playing is so energetic and up beat.

RFK '89 box is out today, and it's on Spotify, etc, too.. The sound is great. Not the best shows that month (Alpine), and I would have preferred my Giants Stadium shows getting this treatment, but any multitrack '89 Dead is always welcome!

Would you suggest Dozen At The Knick as a good intro to that era? I’ve really stayed away from the late 80s-95 shows forever aside from the few dicks picks taken from that era. I know Spring 90 is considered one of the best later tours, would definitely like to jump into that era now that I’ve done my homework on the early years. From what I’ve heard from that period it does sound much more “polished” and professional sounding, but not quite as upbeat and free. It’s slower tempos, a lot more covers and some cheesy keyboard effects.

It’s partially the reason I’m not as huge on 77 as some others. It seems to just lack that “anything can happen” vibe and the raw energy and power that 69-74 has. 77 onward sounds more “rehearsed” to me—- which has its benefits but also kind of makes it less intense.

Yes, Without A Net and Doziní are the first 2 releases to check out for a good taste of Fall 89 - Spring 90. But the summer 89 releases, like the new RFK one, are great too and right when they began tinkering with MIDI, so itís not as widespread as it became in the fall and beyond.

I love late 80ís Dead, but I experienced it, so I have a different draw to it. Whether you like it by purely comparing it to other entirely different eras is up to you.

I think he's mixed great on this one. The mix is great in general.
