Here is a labour of love I have been labouring over, lovingly!

These are (more or less) one hour compilations of live Grateful Dead music, year by year, absolutely heaps of them, all soundboards, sourced from the GD vault.

Originally distributed freely to deadheads by back in 2006 and 2007, here these 192kbps mp3s are bunched together in yearly compilations instead of according to the month and day (regardless of the year) as was the case with's Tapers Section.

These 'releases' were hand picked by the righteous David Lemieux, archivist and ears-in-chief at The performances are all, at the very least, well worth a listen - if not astounding. They may well spark a return to an overlooked show or even some downloading activity from the archive. The sound quality is excellent throughout - and has been carefully tweaked too.

I am simply passing these freebies on, cut up, tagged, grouped and tweaked for level so that the playlists are smooth upon the ears.

There are 80 of them and there will be five more 'Leftovers' compilations uploaded before the project is finally finished.
