Man, I thought it was going to be new footage and got super excited!
I think I have most of these already (minus "So Far" of course, but I think I have some rip of that even somewhere)...

I wonder how much it'll be?!

I heard it's $99 dollars. I have all of these already, a couple on laserdisc and Backstage Pass on vhs so I'm not interested. I'm curious why they didn't include "Rockin' The Cradle" Egypt 1978 or "Crimson, White, and Indigo" Philly 1989. Those are both excellent.

If you are looking for more "new" video Rob, I have a bunch that is still uncirculated and would be happpy to send them your way.

mmmmm....would have been nice to have some unreleased shows included, but would not be too upset to see this for my birthday or under the Christmas tree.

Not to hi-jack the thread, but is the Crimson, White... video as well done as Truckin' to Buffalo?

I was at both. The JFK was an especially smokin' show. The decrepit nature of the ancient stadium made the entire thing surreal. The Bldg was so decayed that weeds were growing up through all the concrete seats in the stands. When you walked into the place, you were greeted by water streaming down the steps, emanating from the bathrooms, which were free flowing. I am pretty sure the place had already been condemned with signs posted everywhere indicating as much. Some were really turned off by it, but we knew the chaos of it all would make for a good show. We were not disappointed. It was touring bliss at this stage with the band in near maximum overdrive.

In typical Philly fashion, the scene was wide-open to a degree that was blessed relief to all Regan era dwellers. The whole thing was like being in ancient Rome. Totally sublime. It really was like seeing the Boys in ancient ruins.

I personally don't get why they keep doing box sets with stuff that is already out. Must have to get rid of excess inventory.

I own the stuff but I don't really watch it much. I just have not found a way to make it an adequate substitute for the real thing. Must need a bigger screen!

Crimson, White, and Indigo is fantastic. As with Truckin up to Bufalo, they don't ruin it with cheezy computer animation. As for why they repackage existing stuff? LOL...the same reason Furthur plays repackaged GD songs....the money. Rolling Eyes

You must not be too "super excited"....I don't offer new footage to everyone, and you could care less. Rolling Eyes

Hugo, I watched set one last night and it was one of the most energetic and well played shows I've seen (on video). The band plays with total focus and ferocity form the Hell in a Bucket right on through. The Let it Grow is blazing, and perfect! The drummers, Jerry....everyone playing with passion and purpose. At the end of Let it Grow, when it seems like that's the end of the set, Brent busts out a scorching "Blow Away" the band responds and then Brent steps out like I have never seen before....hands off the keyboard and does the most protracted vocals-only performance ever. This set left me almost breathless. It is also stunning in its production. Another thing I noticed (and pointed ou to my wife) was the stadium seemed to be packed to FULL CAPACITY. You have to get a copy of this one man...you were very lucky to attend this magnificent show!

I would agree, it's pretty disappointing that there isn't any new material being offered. The only real item of interest is the DVD of "Downhill From Here." And why not put them out on Blu-ray? I understand they weren't shot in HD, but they can clean up tapes from the archives, why not improve these to the best possible quality?

This is probably why I don't work in marketing!

Yes. There are many classic pro-shot videos that would benefit from commercial release. 11-24-78, 3-28-81 both immediately come to mind. It seems that there would be at least acouple dozen more "Views From The Vault" as well. I think every big outdoor show from 1987 till the end, featured those screens on the sides of the stage. You've got to figure they have all those tapes, and all they need to do production-wise, is add a nice soundtrack.

Duck, I will have to get it. I recall that there was a considerable amount of emptiness before it got dark. After that - well I can't claim any viable recollection. The capacity of that place was near 100k from what I remember. Sound was good thanks to the earthen nature of it.

If you had a snapshot of the activity in our section during this show... The show was only the half of it. Maybe we are in there? It was only fit for a Dead video not for prime-time TV that is for sure!

I was thinking about this - hoping someone else can clarify, but I don't recall that there were any concessions at this show. Pretty much impossible I guess, but you would have been nuts to eat or drink anything that came out of there.

I hadn't been online for a bit... but I've got hundreds of discs, and 80% are unwatched, so I'll catch up on those before I get more in the catalog.
Thanks for the offer though, I'm sure some others would love to take advantage of it!
