Grateful Dead Live Show Sets
All Music is from Grateful Dead allowed show tapers and thus there is no violation of copyright laws sharing this music. Taper tapes have been traded freely for years and this is some of my collection.
- Be the first to know about the Grateful Dead’s exclusive limited-edition releases, breaking news on the band, community events, and so much more. It’s all happenin’!
- Download a track or 3 from each, compare 'em, and decide for yourself. Oh, and let us know what you think. Pete: Thanks for the info, Darrin. After downloading a couple of tracks from both, i think that this newly remastered Betty Board does sound slightly better than the version at gdlive.com.
The last show I saw before Jerry's death was at RFK Stadium in Washington, DC and while there, out of no where, came the thought, realization, that the last show of the 3 night run, was exactly my 100th Grateful Dead show. Makes no difference, as a number is just a number but I did have some incredible times at GD shows all across the country.
All below were converted from analog tape and are at 128Kbps. As can be expected, quality varies from very good to not so good. Most are 2nd generation meaning that they were a copy of the original taper's tape. In some cases, I have pulled entire set into music editor and equalized or enhanced sound and also cut dead air here and there.
All labeling is believed to be correct as to venue and date but if you know otherwise, would appreciate hearing from you and I will fix.
As all files are large (> 50MB), I do not recommend you try to download over a dialup line.
The order below is in Venue alphabetical.

Checksums & tags created in xACT
Show information is embedded within the header of each flac file.
It will display on any player capable of directly playing flac files.
If converted to wav during processing, all tags will be stripped,
however audio data will remain unaffected. If you must
transcode to a lossy format, do so directly Flac > Lossy.
Use ffp or st5 to validate audio integrity.
Md5 values will change if tagging is altered.
