The bonus discs tend to be in pretty limited numbers and tend to sell out pretty quickly (as they are generally only sold through Deadnet, although some suppliers like Spin will get in copies as well).  They often sell at quite a premium on eBay.

One doesn't need to restate the obvious by saying that as dodgy downloads (inc as FLACs), they are available all over the place of course....

How do you professional Deadheads keep up?!?!   Shocked

That's easy, you take a deep breath, accept the fact that you are always going to be broke and wallow in denial Smiley

I know guys who never leave their homes.  All they do is download shows....or at least it seems that way.  Scary!  Every time I visit one of them, they load me down - I've got piles and piles of stuff that I've never listened to!  Sometimes I wonder if I ever will.  

I guess we've come a long way from the days of drawing pathetic Steal Your Face renderings on those Maxell UD-XL II S 90 tape covers, eh?  Wink

Yeah, thats my insidious, well, its spelled something like that, doing. My very public apologies to Mike and Cocker in particular, spoken from the mouth of a personal hell, in which I still firmly occupy my seat. But its all a bit of a larf, its only life after all, damn demanding flesh. My perception of Aoxomoxoa is merely in reference to their pre 70 output, it is the last one I would reach for, but not without its noted charms, at least 4 that are touchstones of a sort, I just feel to a one they were fleshed out better in live performance.
Quite envious of friends who were able to make it up to Angels Camp this weekend way up in the Sierras, I still remember the bewildered naked young man being taken away by authorities there in 87 with that look of what have I done wrong officer look on his face. Or the local couple who came home to find a couple Deadheads shaw nuff doin it in their pleasant bed. Or a pissed off Bill Graham riding around on his motorcycle and trying to dispatch order. Or being trapped amongst roughly 1000 "spinners" in the midst of their unseemly ritual ;)and wondering if I was having a heart attack as my medicine took hold. Or the skydivers coming down with the skull and lightning bolt flag at the beginning of the show. Carlos joinin in on a bunch of old chestnuts like Good Morning Little Schoolgirl and positively playing with a fire that had not been evident with that edition of Santana earlier, and Jerry flashing the old cheshire cat at him. Ahh, Deadheads, some of the funniest stuff I have ever witnessed.
And this weekend had electric HotTuna? Sure would like to see Jorma and Jack as a duo at Cropredy, should be effective.

Whilst I'd love to see Tuna at Cropredy, I (sadly) think the acoustic version of the band (let alone the duo) would get lost in the field rather....  You need to hear Jack's bass (acoustic or otherwise) bouncing off enclosed walls  Smiley

Now that you mention that could be true, the most effective times I have seen Tuna, particularly as a duo, was indoors. I have seen them outdoors at a couple earlier Furthur fests and sure it was great, but not the very best, some of those Jack Jorma shows indoors were kind of close to sacred. Everyone seen this little chestnut from that Airplane tour of 89? Although the set lists were good, opening with Its No Secret I think into Crown of Creation the shows were so so, but Jack and Jorma in the middle of the show were just the ticket as I believe this little You Tube shows.

Indeed a splendid few minutes. Thanks Raymond.

I seem to remember HT being more than a bit good at the Stones Knebworth show in the mid 70s. In fact they were the band I enjoyed most that day.  Smiley

I make Raymond and David hit the nail on the head regarding (Acoustic) Hot Tuna performing at a large festival but a smaller one (SoL?) with a good 'country fair' vibe could be nice - Now that's what I call 'England's dreaming'

If you can book Hot Tuna for SOL 2011, then there'll be 300 very happy hippies in a field in Kent next July  Grin

Nice clip of the '89 shows...nice to think something good came of that reunion 'cos the album is horrible....

Oops...controversy? Well, my declaration of love for that record isn't connected to any previous dance of the humble opinions...I've loved The Dead all my life, and as they become more idea than reality to me, that one's turned out to be the record that best triggers the feeling, with 'Wake' a close second.

Good call. The Europe '72 shows occurred literally days before my Damascene conversion. Curses. In fact it was the Luxemburg show on the radio that did it for me.

However, the next tour in the UK in Sept '74, was rather good & some of the Ally Pally stuff appears on DP7, but in a chopped up fashion.

Heh heh heh.  Been listening to that all week, Gub.  It's a rockier road that the first one, but heck, it's a fun way to blow seventy quid.   Wink
