Re: An attempt to listen to every dead show recorded..

#9962 3 years, 5 months ago
Never did it with the WHOLE Grateful Dead show catalog, but I did listen to the 100+ shows my Dad saw from '79 to '95. Twas a fun journey, but did get rough at spots in the 80s and I almost didn't make it to the last tour the 90s stuff annoyed me so much. Thank God he was down to onyl a show or two a year by that point or I probably wouldn't have finished.

Maybe it would be more fun not to do it in order, but rather pick and choose at random? Just have a checklist going or something.
Light up or leave me alone!

I recently fantasized about doing this. I think jumping around would be a good idea to vary the experience. My idea was to do it for charity and seek multiple donors pledging an amount per show. Two shows a day would still take around 5 years.

Other idea is to do all versions of a specific song. How about the ultimate Me and My Uncle Marathon!

Second thought, Dark Star or Playin might be more interesting.

Personally I would go with a ballad, either Stella Blue or Black Peter.

I like the idea of doing it in chronological order. It drags on and will take a long long time but I've got time to spare and I don't think I'm dying anytime soon. I also like doing it chronologically because you can follow the history of the band with each year/month/show.
Like right now I'm at the point where Lenny Hart becomes manager....
