    While ‘89 has hardly been underrepresented in other ways, that is surprising.

    Cue my ongoing rant for an Alpine ‘89 box.

    I have not, but I’ll correct that oversight this weekend!

    Shaking it down

    Buckeye Lake 93
    Winterland 78
    Foxboro 89
    Giants 91

    Beat Club 72
    Buffalo 90

    After next week I'll be batting a solid 500 in the IWT game - Buffalo my favorite of the three. Will be hard to maintain but enjoying the run. Also that Cutler interview was sweet - he's had an amazing life.

    Smokestack Lightning ate my mind one afternoon, long ago.

    And the acoustic stuff is great, as long as ye beware the double action capo.

    Nice - also there were a couple more Shakedown Streams before Buckeye Lake: 7/4/89 Buffalo and The Grateful Dead Movie.

    Buffalo 90 is another unreleased show isn't it?

    Told you that average would be hard to maintain. ;) Still 3/8 is alright.

    I keep hoping for Alpine ‘89 and Alaska ‘80 boxes.

    They could definitely give Alpine the Giants Stadium treatment.

    “Baked Alaska” certainly needs to happen too. A complete 10/31/80, assuming all the tapes (audio and video both) survive intact, would also seem a no-brainer.

    Yay! Or, as they say in NOLA, "yeah, you right..!"

    All 3 shows that weekend were excellent. Super Solid. "The Boys" (sorry!) were just killin' it. Friday is the show of the run, for my money, but all 3 are well-played and very interesting. That hotel scene sounds about right... wasn't there in '90, as the lots were still open for camping, so we stayed on site. But we were at a place very much like you describe for the '91 runs.

    Gone are the days...

    DAT in 1983?

    I don't think so. PCM, maybe?

    You hit the nail on the head.

    I was listening to 5/10/91 recently, and was pleasantly surprised by how good the board mix sounded - keyboards, both of them!, were there, but not too loud. Jerry and Bob clearly audible, and yes, up front in the mix. Then set 2 starts and Bruce's piano seems a couple of db 'louder' than it was in the first set. Now louder than Jerry. Not OK.

    Agree. Not sure how many multitracks exist from the Vince/Bruce era but the 2-tracks are usually a challenge to listen to. Bobby’s guitar is often too loud and harsh, and the keyboard mix is usually poor. (Not enough Bruce), then there is the whole accordion issue.

    I’m not a heavily experienced 89 listener (or mid 80s on for that matter), but 7/4/89 is just about exactly perfect in my book. When I want to here some great latter day dead, I often reach for Buffalo.

    If you listened to Dancing for the very first time... I hope you listened to the rest of it for the very first time as well! I'd hate for you to miss out on the opportunity to chime in threads declaring the show to be overrated and barely worth discussing compared to the rest of May.

    (Which is simply another way of saying... I've had this tape for ever and I'm a jaded vet. But it might make you feel cool.)

    I didn't listen to the rest. I've learned to take the hype with a grain of salt. When I read blurbs like "best concert by anyone at anytime in history" I just roll my eyes.

    Good call.

    You really should listen to it though. A lotta hype for this show...but it also is a very good performance.

    Oh yeah! I can hear that the band is playing very well together. But I usually pick out certain favorite tunes to listen to from different shows. Pretty much all of those are in the 2nd set of Cornell.

    The second set is a monster and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.

    I just follow my muse. When the time is right for my brain and ears to hear certain music, things just click and I enjoy my epiphanies.

    Oh brother, get the back to Cornell, ASAP and turn it up. I’m not saying it’s “the best concert by anyone at anytime in history,” but as a dead fan you’re doing yourself a great disservice by dismissing it just because it’s popular. It’s not to be missed. *the whole thing too, not just the 2nd set
