Ha! That 1.5 TB drive is pretty handy since I got to hire a video guy to take the load off :) I've got about 200 GB of Dead music on it now :)

I'm not trying to give you a hard time, but it is important to spell correctly so people take you seriously, so people know what your talking about and so people don't think your dumb. It really helps me to click the "preview" button and read your post before submitting it.

FWIW--I recall seeing a VCR of a rehearsal with Keith and Donna which must've been right before the first tour of 76.

There's takes of Estimated and Passenger I believe and a lot of other stuff---prolly about an hour long---haven't seen it in years though...I think it might have even been in black and white!

I would like to officially apologize for jumping on you about your spelling. I’m truly sorry. I’m far from perfect and am always trying to improve. I’m not afraid of constructive criticism. I try to take it with open arms.

Group hug!

(agree about the "smart" phones- ugh! I have a Droid 3 with the nice slide out keyboard, but I usually have to go back and make a half-dozen corrections before I hit "send". If at all possible I'll wait until I get back to my computer to do it right.)

And hippieguy- I'm sorry too. I was an English major for my first year of college and I've just never been able to shake it... :lol:

Group hugs are always good!

No hard feelings here, TI4-1009. I can understand. I was a literature/music major for two years until I dropped out, lol. :smile: :smile: :smile:

I seem to recall reading an entire paragraph once that was half a page long which was intentionally jumbled this way. After your mind adjusts to it, not only can you read the misspelled words, but most people can read them at the same speed at which they read properly spelled words.

That's because your brain doesn't see individual letters because you have hopefully learned how to read. :D We see words as a whole so your brain reassembles the letters to make the correct words. Dyslexics tend to be better at this.

As to the original post, I have:
1966 Scorpio studio out takes
1968 ? St Stephen, Eleven practice
1969 Aoxomoxoa out takes
1969 Workingman's Dead out takes
1971 Studio rehearsals w/Keith
1974 Mars Hotel sessions
1975 Ace's SNACK Rehearsal ?
1975 Club Front - Blues for Allah
1976 Club Front
1983 Stone House Studio
1983 Club Front
1984 Studio Rehearsal (In the Dark stuff)
1984 Studio Material - Day Tripper, Tons of Steel, Tom Thumbs
1988 Built to Last sessions
Also a handful of random tunes that were not in front of a live audience

I cannot verify the accuracy of these dates or sessions but they mostly sound legitimate for the era.

I guess I'll get in on the hug, too. As most here, I hope, know, my sense of humor can be very dry, and if you know me, you know that it is never accompanied by malice; having said that, I have often offended people who didn't know me, and so have learned to be somewhat restrained in the use of it. Mark Twain is perhaps my favorite humorist. I was an inveterate reader as a child, and still read a lot today, and as a result have a strong sense and respect for the English language, and consider it to be the most versatile and expressive language I know of. It can be very precise, and I love it for that reason, among others. In fifth grade I tested first year college level of English.

Peace and love, from the heart, to all here, and everywhere!

ugly rumor- I have an Epictetus quote on the wall in front of my desk at work:

I have this great '66 session (maybe the same '66 one you have, Ned?) that's just them grinding Viola Lee over and over again. Some weird silliness, like 12 several-minute partial portions of the song, and one glorious complete version at the end that just cooks. Jerry leaves everyone in the dust. So great.
