I am trying to collect every Grateful Dead concert recorded on cassette tape. The aim of this project is to capture the mammoth devotion used to record all of this sound. Tape sleeve art, the hand-written set lists , and varying technologies are all documented over the decades that the band was active thru these little information packets called bootlegs. This project aims to exhibit the unification of a varying degree of individuals thru their mutual enthusiasm and deadication.

This blog documents the progress of my collecting efforts thru lists and images of recently acquired collections. If you would like to donate your Dead tape collection, or a part of your tape collection (maybe just the poorly recorded ones) to the cause please contact me:
