    Egypt 78 STILL the most undervalued of all Dead shows

    I considered it but never did. There were so many people at Dead shows with tape decks that I decided to enjoy myself instead of working. (Tip of the hat to all the people who did "work").

    That one from the Greek had some good energy, as I recall.

    While I don't consider myself to be a hardcore Deadhead, there's been times when I've gone up to two months listening to the Dead almost exclusively. They'll do that to you.

    Always loved DP3, and even more so when I used etree to cobble together the complete show. Same for DP1.

    I would consider myself a pretty big fan by now, but I still haven’t gotten to the point of only listening to the Dead everyday instead of other bands in between. Maybe I’ll get there one day :wiggle:


    Also what’s the difference between Etree and Relisten? I’ve installed both but don’t see much of a reason to use Etree over Relisten...

    Unfortunately, you're asking the wrong person. I don't know anything about Relisten.

    Getting off topic here, a bit, but before I create a new thread I figure someone here will know:

    For the first time ever, after downloading a show and trying convert the FLAC files to WAV I noticed a few tracks didn’t convert. Tried them again individually, and Trader’s Little Helper (Which has performed flawlessly for me for ages) give me an error message of “None of the files give has the file extension(s) required.”

    What the hell does this mean?

    Clearly, something’s wrong with a handful of files but what’s the deal? I can play the file on my laptop, so the music seems fine, but I won’t be able to put it in iTunes or on my iPod without converting. Any ideas? Thanks.

    I would say either those tracks are named or tagged incorrectly or they are corrupt.

    Could be corrupt, but they seem to play OK via Windows Media Player, etc., on the laptop?

    if it’s “tagged” incorrectly I’m not sure what that means exactly. First time this has happened. Guessing it’s not something I can fix myself. Hmph. I’ll find another source, I guess. Oh well. Thanks.

    I’d re-download them and see if the new files work. Sounds like some type of corrupted file.

    '72 is the year I've been focusing the most on lately, my fave year in GD's career no doubt. Currently on 5/11/72, a really stellar PITB to open it up and now a beautiful Sugaree. So damn good!

    Most Europe 72 shows fall into this discussion, but that one was around in SBD quality for a long time, and for years set two of that show would come up among GD fans I knew as one of their best jams ever.

    I forget if that's still the longest Dark Star ever or if 12-6-73 is longer. The best part of 5-11 is that after the (maybe) longest Dark Star ever they're still not close to done.

    Not sure if this will help, but you might want to try to convert with another program. I'm on a Mac, and there are occasions where XLD, the program I primarily use to convert between audio formats wont work, but using xACT will. I've also encountered reversed situation where xACT can't handle files, but XLD can. I will almost always listen closely to these files afterward, but if no errors have been generated in the logs, they should be fine.

    Of course sometimes, that doesn't work either, and I go back to download from LL, or the Archive, or wherever, as DrLunchbox suggested.

    There’s just a near uniformity of happiness and people enjoying the music around the Dead. It’s nearly irresistible.

    There’s sadness and regret, too, I suppose. But it’s not so sad that it can’t be overcome by what the band did and in some configurations or another, are still doing, and in how the fans love it so.

    It’s contagious, too. Look at it here. This is the single greatest thread on all of Steve Hoffman’s forums, it really is, and I know there’s similar topics on more than a few other boards, etc. The acrimony is at such a low level and loving the music is at such a high level. It’s great!

    I've always thought the one from 8/27/72 was the longest Dark Star. That's cuz that one is not split up in two, or more, 'parts'. But ofc I get what you mean.

    5/11/72 is the longest including the drum break at 13+ minutes

    Second longest is the 12/6/73 inside-out Star - the one without the opening riff until the verse...

    Nah, 8-27-72 is only like 31 minutes. 5-4-72, 5-25-72, 9-10-72, 9-21-72, 9-24-72, 11-13-72, 12-11-72, 3-28-73, plus the aforementioned are all longer.

    There are quite a few others that are also 31 minutes.

    Yeah I see. I was only thinking of the ones that aren't split-up though. The one on 5/11/72 has Drums in between, for instance.

    Right, that's a tracking decision that's created controversy, I believe there's a corollary floating around for which 5-11 is the case study.

    Personally I'd put something like 4-1-91, which goes Dark Star>Drums>Space>Dark Star over the course of ~34 minutes into the same category of '30 minute + Dark Stars,' but that's not conventionally counted, whereas 5-11-72's Dark Star>Drums>Dark Star counts as a contiguous Dark Star because Dark Star in that era was basically a variety of jams (including at times other passages featuring a single non-percussion instrument) and once it starts it should be assumed to be ongoing until something else definitive starts, etc.

    You're getting into the hard core Dead nerd discussions now though.

    What do you use to decode them? Xact misses some sometimes, I've never had something not convert with XLD though...

    ...except SHN files, half the time it won't do those at all
