All of the music recordings on this site are recordings of independent origin (ROIOs) Music that has not been officially released. If you are an artist or a legal representative of an artist and you do not want your ROIO shared on my site for free among your fans (and creating new fans), just tell me in the comment area and I will remove them. By the way these recordings exist. They won't go away. All of them can be found at various places on line. Sharing just keeps the fans that support the artists from having to get ripped off by purchasing them on auction sites, and it also introduces music to people who would never have known the artist, creating a stronger fan base.

Grateful Dead, Amsterdam, Netherlands, 10-16-81 (SBD)

The OOPS! Concert.  This show was played on Bob Weir's birthday and was unscheduled in the middle of a Europe tour. Since there were no advance ticket sales and save for the scattered “OOPS” posters in Amsterdam’s Leidplein district, no advance notice either. It was first come, first serve at the door. Ticket price worked out to about seven bucks
Since most of the band’s equipment was on its way to Paris, they played borrowed instruments. Jerry sported a Strat styled Yamaha 1000 sunburst guitar and Weir, a white Fender Telecaster. 
 This show features the first Lovelight since Pig pen's death, the first Gloria since 1965, and the only Hully Gully ever played.  Not to mention an acoustic first set.  An amazing show.

  3. Really looking forward to this. I had a very hi-gen copy of this in the '80's, so an actually listenable version is a real treat. Thanks.
