I went digital several years ago when Grateful Dead still allowed soundboards to be diwnloaded from live music archive and bt.tree. I had a huge library of tapes that I sent to a head from NC for postage and now have my whole archive of live music Dead and non dead on CDR. I was a taper as well and still have many of my recordings on LMA to share for free.I’m a head. Always will be. Was never really into the scene but dig the music.
Someone who just recently got into the Dead asked me what my favorite song. I had to do a double take on that...I like them all! Especially at certain times. He didn’t like that answer, didn’t get it. I saw him struggling with it and had to help him out....Alright, I’ve seen/heard Johnny B. Goode a few too many times as an encore.
Haven't seen the doc, will have to check it.
Lol, typing this out at my desk and have my favorite 100 shows at my feet. (so nice having this photo upload option now).
Maxell XLII 90 tapes were what we lived for. My parents would get me 10 packs of them for Christmas and Birthdays. Trippy remembering that.

I was at Phil's 60th bday show that was one of my favorite friends lineup with Little Feat and Robbin Ford. I also saw another great Phil/Dylan show 4 months later at Ventura fairgrounds. This and the '98 Other Ones line up been my favorite after Jer line ups.Surffuerte - that was a great show you posted. Like many others, 70-74 is my favorite era. And although I can appreciate Brent's playing and singing, I never cared much for his era of the band - I tend to listen to 1979 and earlier.
Crazy that Phil is going to be 81 shortly. It seems like yesterday that I went to the Henry J Kaiser to see his 60th birthday bash.

I tried listening today for the first time and decided they were a Boomer band. The documentary is for Boomers who are retiring and need something to do so they watch TV.I like the Skull and Roses album.
On the other hand I really don't get jam bands and the culture.
Phish, Dave Matthews, OAR, etc.
It reminds me of well off white college kids from the NE. Who can be some of my least favorite people.
