Comments from the original uploader: Overall, a very good recording with an especially powerful performance of Mississippi Moon.Tape paused between tracks with occasional clipping of the first note. This is a complete recording and separate from the previous seed of the first set where the taper gets busted during intermission.

There was some variability in the recording levels of several individual tracks. I applied between 1.5 and 2.5 dB gains to several tracks to achieve a more stable balanced level using soundforge 5.

Thanks to D. Minches for the CDR sources.

Deep or Wide

Ever since I put up the question as to which year of the Dead to do next I’ve been pondering whether or not to get more focused. Let me explain, as I said then it took me roughly 15 months to get through 1969. Now even if I pushed harder on the Dead and got one year of shows down to 12 months posting time it would still take me 28 years to get through the rest of them.

Now I have no intentions of quitting this blog anytime soon but there is no way I’ll be doing it for 28 more years. If nothing else the technology will catch up to me and everybody will be streaming all the shows straight to their synapses.

Then, of course when we start looking at Bob Dylan’s staggering output and the numbers get even higher.

Truth be told I’ll never get all the shows posted on this blog, but it occurs to me some of you may prefer a more concentrated amount of what I used to call the Holy Trinity (Dylan, Dead, Morrison) and less of all the shows from miscellaneous artists.

So, dear reader, would you rather me mostly ditch the other artists and just concentrate on the trinity, or do you like things the way they are with an assortment of artists?

As a slight aside I’ll say something I wrote in a comment on a David Bowie post that was deleted after discovering that show had been officially released.

I’ve gotten into a pretty good groove. I now upload particular artists on particular days (I’m a couple of weeks ahead in terms of what I upload to when I post it so these days won’t match the posting dates.) Uploads go like this:

Monday: Bob Dylan
Tuesday: Jerry Garcia
Wednesday: Grateful Dead
Thursday: Neil Young
Friday: Van Morrison
Saturday: Reuploads from shows on my hard drive.
Sunday: Reuploads from my CD collection

I usually get 2-3 shows from the artist each day and when I’m in the mood I grab shows from artists not listed. That happens probably three times a week.

You all have seen how this turns out in the posts so I won’t get into that any further. If you like the way this is going let me know. If you would prefer I drop the extras and maybe Neil Young (or anybody else) let me know that too.

If I was guessing I’d say you all like the variety, but I thought I’d ask. We can totally do a more concentrated effort for Dylan and the Dead and get through a lot more shows.

Merlefest is an annual bluegrass festival in North Wilkesboro, NC. I’ve never been but the lineups are always spectacular and the bootlegs are usually hot. This particular bootleg was not actually a part of the festival but rather an impromptu jam session recording in a local hotel. It features members of Leftover Salmon and Nickel Creek plus a variety of others. Its a great listen of some great musicians kicking back in a relaxed atmosphere. Enjoy!
