Crispy ‘Boards Ready For Download

by | Sep 19, 2005

Grateful Dead is now utilizing the download only distribution model, in addition to their traditional releases. Smart move if you have the fan base to pull it off, for there’s no manufacturing, no packaging and no distribution involved.

I just purchased the 5th release in the series, a spring tour show I attended at Hampton Coliseum in March 1988. This is the night they played Dylan’s “Ballad of a Thin Man” in the first set and teased Miles Davis’ “So What” to open the second. It’s nice to have such a crispy ‘board to remember the show by.
