Re: Grateful Dead vinyl bootlegs and oddities

Nice list, man. I had the Stella Blue double album, but sold it on ebay a few years ago when I needed some quick cash. I put $100 reserve on it and ended up getting $135. I'd love to get another copy, as I was at that show (Spectrum 4/8/85). That's one of the bootlegs that's more for collecting than listening. Sounds like it was taped from the restroom or something....

Thank you.
It's a pity that in the last 3/4 years I had not the possibility to increase the collection. Here is France, at the records conventions, the prices are incredible high.

Anyway, I completed my list with all the LPs cover images.
here it is.

Is that the actual cover for the Live in Gizah album? I have a poster and postcard of that image. Think I got it from Relix years ago.

The one I got yes. I bought it in Florence, Italy.
Rumors where saying that the album was printed in Florence where at the time a lot of bootlegs were done.
I met then some guys that were doing bootlegs but they never confirmed about the Gjzah one.
But it is quite sure they supplied the tape source.

Have you seen the Gizah bootleg that has the old Egypt poster as the cover? It's almost the same as the cover for the "Rocking the Cradle" CD set. I wonder if it's the same recording.

No, or maybe I don't remember.
About the same show, and if I well remind the same source as the box set, I got the 3 CDs version.

Thanks.
Very hard to say which are the "must have". I remember that I was particularly happy when I bought "Make Believe Ballroom", maybe because was the first one I was buying. Listened at it millions of times!
I will say: Farewell to Winterland, Silent Dead, For Dead Heads Only, Live in Gjzah (more for the fact that its hard to find, recording is very poor), Out West, Dead Ahead.
And I will include this Jerry Garcia one!, very good.

On Ebay there are a lot of LPs on sell but some are incredible expensive.
I prefer anyway to go around for little shops where you can always find some interesting things.

Brokedown Palace is 4/8/85, set 2? Is Stella Blue the same set?
