wow no comments on this awesome show? only the second set is on the archive. probably the best shakedown street ever recorded is captured here. the whole band is just on fire especially brent who goes all out on the keyboards and actually has some different keyboard tones than usual almost sounding like a clavinet. pretty sick, highly reccomended

Could someone please explain or maybe even mention where the FUCK some hidden video's of these great shows are? I mean, if these shows have so many different recordings then why doesn't seem we have the video be released or streaming from somewhere? So could someone please say where all these great video of shows are. Don't hide the best how about show the Best.

@Deadhead Eric
They didn't have camcorders back in 79 or if they did they were huge VHS recorders and not allowed into the shows. Be grateful there were audio recordings of this quality that we can listen to today.

Thank you steve for the response. Still then just curious about why a 1977 new years eve show almost two years earlier was released. The fact of the matter is that many heads say they have seen cameras at lots of late 70's shows and also wonder as I do why a grate show just isn't released on video. The Warlocks 89' show for instance, released on CD at a crazy price worth more than the ticket show total. I'm just the big elephant in the room wondering why no seems to notice. Also what show couldn't somebody get a camera in. Who wants a dose of Bravery? Forever Grateful!

Well ... it was always an honor system with the Grateful Dead. They let you bring in audio equipment and tape away and distribute as you wanted, but they asked not to videotape. Fair enough, I say, since any other band would have had you bounced out to the parking lot with any microphone or camera. Tapes alone were a prized posession back then. I remember going to Columbia (SC), then two nights in Richmond, in 1985. Caught a ride with another student at Ohio University who had a great portable audio recorder. Because I drove most of the way, he got me tapes of all three shows the day after we got back. These tapes were more valuable than gold back at OU.
