Thanks for posting that article, Lee. Some in depth treatment of this subject is long overdue. Blair Jackson is usually very reliable, but I am not certain it is entirely accurate. We know for sure that Garcia played a 1936 Martin 000-18...

Re: Jerry's D-18/details? (reply)
I think the vid of Garcia playing a D-18 in Grisman's studio could be one of the instruments assembled for the Tone Poems album. There was a 1943 D-18 involved. Grisman at one point tried to get Garcia to play a traditionally set up...

Re: Which Extra Light Strings for '26 0-21? (reply)
Just to make sure the full spectrum of opinion is aired, I think the .010 or .011 Thomastik Infeld Plectrum would be just the ticket, and are well worth the price.

I  just had to poke around and found this in the New York Times, very interesting indeed:But live recordings can come with thorny legal questions. They were often made outside the studio under contracts that did not clearly assign...

Definitely does matter. My favourite shape is the Blue Chip TPR.

This site gets nearly everything right. It doesn't talk about the Herringbone, it incorrectly lists Rosebud as the last guitar he played on stage (it was, in fact, Tiger) and has the date as August 4th when it was, of course,...

Tom, it might just be a blurry memory rather than an hallucination. On 16 July 1972, Grateful Dead played Dillon Stadium in Hartford, CT. During the second set Dickey Betts, Butch Trucks and Berry Oakley sat in. The next day, when the...

So far the only outdoor shows I can find for Grateful Dead in Queens are for July 11 and 12th, 1969, when they played Flushing Meadow with Joe Coker and the Grease Band and Tribe. I also found another Grateful Dead / Allmans appearance...

Sorry, I misunderstood. I am not aware that Weir had expressed concerns about Wolfgang's Vault. Now I see your point about digital rights. Do you have a reference to Weir's complaint?

Yes, good stuff. If the Duane era Allmans played an open air show with Grateful Dead in NYC, that is something else, it would be an important addition to the known history!On 11 February 1970 at the Fillmore East Love / Allman Brothers /...

I don't have a record of an outdoor show in NYC with both GD and the Duane era Allmans. They did play together at the Fillmore East. I would love to know more. Can you pin it down a bit Tom eg venue, month, year?

On the artists knowing that they signed away rights to their shows, t seems that they did, and particularly in the case of the Dead. It's not only that the dead encouraged taping and requested that tapes be sent to them so they could...

I was commenting on this, which seemed to imply that Graham's heirs benefited from Wolfgang's Vault:  What would be unethical would be to deprive him of the rewards from his life's work. I wonder if the Fillmore performers meant to sell...

My understanding is that, while Wolfgang's Vault is named after Bill Graham, and it launched with the purchase of Bill Graham's archives from executives of BGP, who purchased them from his family after Bill died, Wolfgang's vault doesn't...

I heard Bob Smeaton talk about how Festival Express was put together after a showing at the Bermuda Film Festival in 2004. I'm pretty sure he said that the film reels were recovered from a garage after 30 years presumed lost forever. The...
