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, Oakland, CA, 9-12-1985 (sbd)

This is a nice soundboard recording of The Grateful Dead during their run in Oakland in September of 1985.  The shows were billed as the anniversary of the acid test shows and there was a great liquid light display light show on the screen behind the stage.  I was at these shows.  I traveled up from Southern California alone and with a bunch of screen print t-shirts in hand.  I stayed with a girl that lived in Berkeley I had met at the Greek shows earlier in the year.  A great time.  This show had the last Helps on The Way until the Hampton shows in 1989.

  1. I wondered where the 1995 date came from after Jerry's death, then noticed it was a typo for 1985

  2. Hi Mr. Jones,

    I thought for a moment this was a surprise show with a date of a little after Jerry died. However I see it is not 1995 as the heading says, but 1985 (per the artwork & list). You had me pretty excited for a minute.

    Thanks for all the great posts. I especially love the photos of the places you've been. Thanks for sharing.

  3. you should fix the typo on this header..... NOT 9-12 ---> 8-12!!!

  4. Thanks for the correction. I should do that more often. It seems the only way I get people to make comments, LOL!!!
