Video description:

This is another “restoration” rather than a “remaster due to … I can’t call this a “remaster” because it’s just…. not.

Partial show! (5-6 songs?)
Audio retrack with Chalrie miller’s sbd
input 480i output 1080p

Just tried to get some balance in the black levels, clean up the noise, and scale it without distortion (it’s already distorted… this is much better than before… seriously..)

Hope you enjoy !!

Big River- Complete
China Doll-Complete
Jam– 2nd set??
Jimmy Row- Complete
Big River- Complete – This appears to be the exact song and shots from the first Big River- NO idea why it is on twice!

This footage came to me through a lot of reels that I bought from a guy about 3 years ago. It has taken me a while to get it converted. I had approached Grateful Dead Productions about trying to get it in future DVD, but that never materialized because they were in the process of closing things down.

The footage is far better than the Fillmore footage in quality– probably shot from a tripod in the balcony somewhere.

This was not a very stable format, so the transfer was very problematic. It is VERY difficult to get a good transfer from these decks. They are very finicky and often times will not play footage from a different type of deck- ie- a Sony EIAJ machine can have difficulty with a reel that was recorded on Panasonic. Furthermore, not too many people are out there that do the transfer. The person who did this had done transfers for the Dead before on 1/2 inch as well as 2 inch video. He did as good a job as could be done with this footage. Im sure that somebody can synch this with the existing audio out there to provide a better experience.

This reel was labeled as Reel 1– It is my hope that there is a reel 2 out there which will somehow be discovered.

Please chime in with your thoughts on this show– I am by NO means an expert on GD, and am guessing from the setlist and the markings on the tape reel that this is the 9/21 show in Paris– Any verification of this would be helpful-

Also– if you enjoy this– I ask that you make a donation to Guitars Not Guns-www.guitarsnotguns.org, a national charity that brings guitar lessons to disadvantaged children. This footage along with the other things I have unearthed was not cheap.
