I’m pretty sure this is my last GD Hour. When I lived in an area that had the show I always loved listening. It was fun to get an hour of random Grateful Dead or related music, but downloading it took away that magic. I could see the setlist and it was more intentional than just listening to the radio. After getting a few shows it just didn’t feel right, especially since there is so much live music out there consisting of full shows and the like.

Anyways a few of you have downloaded the other shows so I hope you enjoy this one. David Gans may be putting his current show online still so if you do like it you should definitely go to his site and check it out. I know a lot of radio shows stream it too.

Bootleg Bonanza: David Gans & Vince Welnick – Dead to the World (03/12/99)

Kashmir is performed by Missing Man Formation. Crystal Ship is Vince only. All other songs are both Gans & Welnick.

This is the very first bootleg I ever received on CD. I had been collecting for a few years, but prior to this I was using cassette tape. Relatively prior to this everyone was using tape. The introduction of affordable, readily available CD burners was revolutionary to the bootleg world. It is difficult to overstate that fact.

If you can remember cassette tapes had a great capacity for losing fidelity when being dubbed to another tape. More than about 5 generations out from the master source and the music became unlistenable. Thus it was really important to get shows that high at high level generation. So, important, in fact, that there was a great deal of snobbery in the trading world. People with high generations would often not trade with others who only had low gen copies, or small lists, or not-top-of-the-line equipment, or anything really. It was really obnoxious.

But with CD burning technology the playing field was leveled. You could not get an exact copy of the originally recorded concert no matter how many generations out you were. It was awesome.

You have to also remember that CDs were not new technology, they had been out for years and most people had long dumped cassette players. The newness was the ability for average Joe to burn his own CDs. Suddenly bootleggers could start playing the concerts in the car, at the office and everywhere else they had CD players and had dumped the old cassette technology.

Again, it was awesome.

It was late 1999 and I had just purchased a computer with a CD burner. I was still trying to figure out the technology but was very interested in moving up from tape trader to CD trader. Having 0 bootlegs on CD I wasn’t sure where or how to start. I kept my eyes out for freebies or B+P offers and it just so happens that this one came up so I jumped on it.

I’m not a huge Welnick fan and this show isn’t particularly wonderful, but it holds a special place in my heart. It isn’t bad, mind you, the sound quality is good and if you are a fan of either Welnick or Gans its worth getting. There is some interesting interview material with the last Grateful Dead keyboard player, and some fun playing. For me though, it will always be the start of something wonderful.

Notes from the creator:

This is a collection of songs performed by Railroad Earth that were also
done by Jerry in one form or another; Old and in the Way, JGB, and Grateful
Dead. I put together this compilation in an effort to help expand a friend’s musical horizons.

The songs were culled from a variety of source tapes primarily downloaded
from the Live Music Archive. Where more than one version of a particular song was
available I listened to a few to pick the one with the best combination of
recording and performance. This was entirely subjective and not an
exhaustive exercise. Your mileage may vary. I tried to avoid the more
obvious selections like 4/16/05 when Phil sat in with the RRE boys, although
I did use one song from that show, GDTRFB, as it was the only version I knew
of (besides Phil didn?t sing).

I tried to balance recording levels, make cuts and fades so that the
compilation works reasonably well in the order the tracks are listed.
Obviously other combinations would work equally as well, or not.

Bootleg Bonanza: David Gans – Atlanta (10/22/99)

Download MP3@224kps: Part I, Part II

Gans is probably best known as the man behind the syndicated radio show The Grateful Dead Hour but he’s also an author and singer/songwriter. Periodically he does some solo acoustic shows which feature a lot of Grateful Dead music, but also other cool covers plus his own songs. This is also the very first bootleg I ever got in the new CDR format.

David Gans is likely best known being the host of the nationally syndicated radio show, “The Grateful Dead Hour” but he is also a journalist and a pretty good singer/songwriter in his own right.

This show is a great sounding little solo acoustic show filled with lots of fun cover and some nice originals. I find you have to really remove yourself from the Grateful Dead, for even though he does cover some of their songs, his presentation is nothing like that behemoth jam band. For my book his voice also takes a little getting used to, but once your there its all good.
