Hey Now!

Just wondering if there are any other old Dead Heads like myself around here. If there are, have you found archive.org yet? If not here's a link:

http://www.archive.org/details/GratefulDead

I like this site a lot, you can listen to almost every show that's ever been recorded, and there's tons of them by the way . You can download audience tapped shows and listen to soundboards. When you select a show you might want to click on the 'VBP M3U" link on the left side of the page. That opens up the windows media player which has lots more adjustability to the audio.

Just thought I'd pass this along, I know I've seen Jerry's pic on somebody's name, sorry but I can't remember who. Enjoy!

Not a big fan myself, but my cousin did go to seven shows before he was a year old.

Not sure if I'm an "old" Deadhead - clinging to my 30s for a few more weeks! - but I caught two dozen or so GD and JGB shows between 1990-95. I collected concert recordings on cassette - had over a thousand of them, all GD - and listened to pretty much nothing else for quite some time. I have a well worn copy of Deadbase, tons of books, and I got to meet Phil Lesh at one of his book signings!

After Jerry passed away I started branching out. I really don't listen to the Dead much these days, but will still throw in a show every now and then. I didn't see any of the last tour due to the high ticket price. It didn't help that they didn't play near me, and that Phish, arguably my favorite band, came back this summer after a 5 year hiatus...

But I have to give credit to the GD audience taping scene. That started me on the path to becoming a taper. I now record all sorts of live music, and quite a bit of it ends up on archive.org (Bands must first grant permission before you can upload recordings of them - it's completely legal!) I have a 'bookmark' list where you can check those out - give something a stream or download in mp3, ogg, or lossless FLAC:

I'm gonna have to check that site out. Thanks !!

Just a bit (slightly) off-topic, I saw The Jerry Garcia Band open for Zappa in the early 80's. That was an...interesting show, to say the least !

I'm not an old deadhead (I'm 23), but I've been listening to The Dead since high school. I've been listening to their archinve, and everything else on there for about 6 or 7 years now.

Make sure to check out the "stream only" shows. They are almost all soundboards. I was on before they decided to make all the soundboards stream only, so I have quite a collection.


I'm streaming Derek Trucks with Jimmy Herring right now though.

Seventy+ shows under my belt. Starting at the Spectrum in Philly in 78 when I was 14. It was my first concert ever. My last show was in '95 at the Meadowlands. I almost died that night. A big rig passed within a foot of my face doing 50 MPH while I was trying to cross I10. Sobered me up good and fast.

At one point I had collected a tape of each show that I had seen but they have all seemed to just disappear over the years.

I do have a couple hundred hours worth of shows on my MP3 player now. A lot of Dick's Picks.
