I love how he said he taped his first shows at the Kaiser Feb 1989...
I was at that last Kaiser run (which would be an amazing Box Set... IMHO - (Go check those 3 nights out... '89 was sweet)
and to think he become the Archivist? So jealous...
Right time, right place, so glad he has a good nose for it, and even moreso... a good EAR for it!
No pre-order yet... No Official Announcement yet...
Just from a very "trustworthy source" (Maybe I should of held back my topic, but I have a good feeling about this). If I'm wrong, believe me, never happen again... lol
Could be wrong, but I wouldn't bet on it.
Should be official announcement soon
Probably not both nights in one release as there were early and late shows both nights-it would take 6 discs, and given the subscription nature of the releases (4 releases per year @ $100) , anything that size would mess up the numbers...

This is a great period where their set list begins to diversify. Listen to those Fillmore West recordings from 1968 with mostly Pigpen material and I think you'll understand my point. But either way, thanks for the advanced notice. I couldn't have predicted that this would be a follow up to the Cornell 77 release.
I've been listening to that Cornell 77 show a lot recently and am still enamored with the Betty Cantor recordings, as they have a great natural and open feel to them. I'm considering purchasing the high resolution download. Has anybody downloaded that high resolution file and if so, did you notice a significant improvement over the standard redbook CD's?
