Taper: Dave Peters

So the story goes: I answered an ad on Craigslist for 500 free Grateful Dead tapes.
On picking them up from the taper, I'm also informed he and a friend recorded other bands through the 70's.
These were never circulated, and deemed inferior in quality.
When I inquired about digitizing his masters, he laughingly obliged.
Most of the old Ampex and BASF tapes are in poor shape, several completely off the spool, and many squealing badly.
I may be attempting to bake some of them, as a last resort.
I will be presenting the ones of superior quality only, out of the initial batch he loaned me.
I do believe these shows will be lovingly embraced by the Dime community, and will be shared here exclusively.

"The November 1977 Tower Theater shows, both are great, first is mind blowing...I remember watching Jerry and getting the feeling that he was thinking "so, you came to see me play guitar, watch this" and he just went off....I used to have these types of mind connections with him all the time. Even when I was way back and out of the action so to speak or up close I felt that Jerry ALWAYS knew I was there...I was pretty naive to think I had a psychic connection with someone I never met. Until after the California theater show in San Diego in 86 I knew I had been right all along when Jerry went into "Lonesome and a Long Way From Home" and was looking at ME over his glasses the way he did the whole time...My first Non east coast Dead event( I was there alone) and he played that song for me. He knew when WE were in the house, all of US. That's what kept us coming back, was that feeling they were playing for us and that we were their motivation. I know I know I am still naive to believe that, but I do…"
