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.
Up for grabs amidst some other rock memorabilia were 1,000 reel-to-reel soundboard tapes of the Grateful Dead originally recorded by Betty Cantor-Jackson between 1971-80. The Betty Boards as they. The Grateful Dead Archive. The number one place to get free Grateful Dead mp3 files online is the Live Music Archive (LMA) at archive.org. The LMA is one of the coolest websites I've ever seen. It's like a paradise for people who download, collect and listen to live concert recordings. If you've never been there it can be a bit overwhelming at.
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.
