This series of tape trees will take a slightly different approach to the usual Grateful Dead tape trading trees. We will start with the Spring tour 1977 and possibly go beyond to Marc Blaker's 1978 Cm > DAT clones, Jeff Burkhart's 1983 masters, and David Sorochty's 1976 Aud Reels > DAT clone.  Like The Family Tree  - there will be a semi-permanent structure. It's not mandatory, but you can sign up to be a part of this project for several batches of tapes.

While sbds of this time period are common for some of these, Teddy has come forward with some of his own Audience Master Cassettes, (and other masters or low generation tapes), to give us a different listen on this exceptional time in GD history. The time is 1977. The Dead are in their prime and you are IN the audience.

Ladies and gentlemen, The Grateful Dead!


Background Info From Teddy:

If anybody is looking for HQ sbd sounding tapes, these are NOT those tapes.  However, most are rare & generally what circulates in aud's are generations from my masters or from another taper's tapes at the time, Barry Glassberg.  I'm one of those people that prefer SOME 'energetic' aud's over sbd's & these IMO are 'energetic'.  I'm working on getting the remainder of say 5/3/77 (and any other better copies out there from this run) from Barry's masters, and other masters, in order to have the complete best 'aud' copies of these shows.

The tapes that come from MY masters are:

Panasonic AM/FM Stereo 'boom box like' w/condenser mics) > CM (Cassette Masters) > various equalizers & editors > CD or DAT  

The 1st 5 tree rounds will be the best of what circulates of the Spring '77 run.

Upcoming shows to be converted NOW (until I get better seeds when necessary) to CD/DAT include:

4/23/77 - ALL.
4/25/77 - ALL.
4/26/77 - ALL: I sat 1st row center.
4/29/77 - ALL.
4/30/77 - 2nd set.
5/1/77 - ALL.
5/3/77 - up to RJ cut then from Wharf Rat to end.
5/4/77 - ALL   'A hot PITB > Comes A Time'.
5/7/77 - ALL.
5/8/77 - ALL.
5/28/77 - ALL
