On Public Access to the Internet Archive’s Grateful Dead Collection   1 comment

Although I have covered this topic in a technical blog some time ago, the programmatic approach is not for everyone.  As one correspondent wrote:

Cloud,

I just want to listen to Dark Star on my IPOD, not get a computer science degree.

Well, if you just want to listen to Dark Star (or Fire On the Mountain for that matter) just go here or here.  Right Click on any track listed, select SAVE AS and Bear’s your Uncle.  But if your needs go deeper and you don’t want to write code; here dear reader is a simple explanation involving nothing more technical than a browser (Chrome will do fine but use Internet Explorer will work also) and a text editor (notepad for example).

Know Your Rights

The first thing we do, let’s kill all the lawyers…

                                              Shakespeare  ‘Henry VI,” Part II

Please read the statement from the Internet Archive on use of the Grateful Dead recordings stored on the Internet Archive here.  Understanding and interpretation of same is up to you, not me. I am not a lawyer, I don’t even play one on television, thank you.

Doing a Single Track

Let’s say we like an early Dark Star, say:  Grateful Dead Live at Carousel Ballroom on 1968-01-17 for example.  Cursing to the Internet Archive we find the concert page for the Soundboard version we like the best:

Opps, No downloads on this concert. Let’s take a closer look at the browser screen, at the URL text box at the top:

Picture2

the “Https://archive.org/details” is the same on all concerts but the other part is the unique key for this particular version of this concert:

gd1968-01-17.sbd.jeff.3927.shnf

I will call this the IAKEY.  We will use this key to delve into the Internet Archive a little more deeply.  Copy this text string from the URL text box and copy it into a Notepad text document.  Now we need a list of all the mp3 files associated with this recording of this concert. Internet Archive stores these in an xml file uniquely defined for each recording. Copy the following template string into a second Notepad text document:

http://www.archive.org/download/{IAKEY}/{IAKEY}_files.xml

Now using text replace the string “{IAKEY} with the IAKey we got perviously.  When you are done the string will look like:

http://www.archive.org/download/gd1968-01-17.sbd.jeff.3927.shnf/gd1968-01-17.sbd.jeff.3927.shnf_files.xml

Open a new browser window and copy this new string into the URL text box and press enter.  Here is what you get back:

Picture3

Search for “Dark Star” on the screen and locate the mp3 file name I will call this the TrackMP3 (ignore any mp3 entries with the digits 64 in the mp3 file name).  In this case the mp3 for Dark Star is:

gd68-01-17d1t03_vbr.mp3

Open up your Notepad document as paste this string into it:

http://www.archive.org/download/{IAKEY}/{TrackMP3}

Now in this string replace {IAKEY} with gd1968-01-17.sbd.jeff.3927.shnf as we did before and replace {TrackMP3} with gd68-01-17d1t03_vbr.mp3

The final text string will now look like:

http://www.archive.org/download/gd1968-01-17.sbd.jeff.3927.shnf/gd68-01-17d1t03_vbr.mp3

Open up a new browser tab and paste this string into it and press enter.  There you are Dark Star will start playing and just RIGHT CLICK and Select “Save As” and Bear’s your uncle.

Doing a Group of Tracks

This gets tedious right away.  You can improve this process to skip the part where the file starts playing first by using a little HTML code.  I am not going to explain the whole process but it works like this:

follow the steps above and get a couple (or all) of the TrackMP3 strings.  “Turn on Your Love Light” has an TrackMP3 of gd68-01-17d1t01_vbr.mp3.  Cryptical Envelopment has a TrackMP3 of gd68-01-17d2t01_vbr.mp3 and  Dark Star we already know.

Open a text editor and enter the lines:

<html><body>

<a href=http://www.archive.org/download/{IAKEY}/{TrackMP3}> {title}</a>

<a href=http://www.archive.org/download/{IAKEY}/{TrackMP3}> {title}</a>

<a href=http://www.archive.org/download/{IAKEY}/{TrackMP3}> {title}</a> 

</body><html>

Now replace {IAKey} and {TrackMP3} and {title} in each line with the strings you got above and save the text file with the extension HTML (NOT as a txt file).  Load the HTML file into the browser (drag and drop will work) and you will see in the browser:

Turn on Your Love Light

Cryptical Envelopment

Dark Star

Right click on each of these in turn and click Save As… I hope you are getting the picture now.

Scarlet Begonias, Fire On The Mountain and, Sometimes, Estimated Prophet   1 comment

Why yet another List of Grateful Dead Concerts And Songs hosted on the Internet Archive?

The Internet Archive has always been a great source for free concerts recordings of the Grateful Dead.  Probably no single individual has done more quality sound processing of concert tapes posted to the Internet Net then the great Charlie Miller.  No single contributor has better sound processing skills or better musical taste than Charlie.   You can find my blogs on the Grateful Dead recordings on the Internet Archive here and here.  I am currently very into Grateful Dead sets which include Scarlet Begonias –> Fire On the Mountain.  These sets often include Estimated Prophet as a third song in the series. This list of hyperlinks to concerts and song is part of the final three posts in this series.  An overview of my Grateful Dead series can be found here.

What’s in this List?

Column 1 = Date and Venue as a Hyperlink to Concert on Internet Archive.  Click To Play the Concert.

Column 2 = Track Number, Song Title, Song Time as a Hyperlink to Song on Internet Archive.  Click To Play the Song.  Right Click For Additional Options

Column 3 = Recording Method:

C=Sound Board Processed By Charlie Miller

S=Other Sound Board

X= Matrix Mix

AUD = audience recording

Selection Algorithm:

On any given data test of presence of Scarlet Begonias and Fire On the Mountain. When there are multiple recordings on the same date select in order a Charlie Miller Processed recording or a SSoundboard recording or a Matrix recording.  If none of these are found select the Audience recording with the most downloads.  Emit Hyperlinks for Concert and each of the tracks Scarlet Begonias, Fire on the Mountain and if present Estimated Prophet.  Enjoy.

Grateful Dead: Scarlet Begonias -> Fire On The Mountain Concert Tapes On The Internet Archive   18 comments

While getting ready to do a blog post on Microsoft’s MVC Web API I dumped my CouchDB database of Grateful Dead Internet Archive tapes into SQL Server 2008.  To test the full text search on SQL Server I produced this list.  I hope you enjoy it.  Here is a list of Soundboard or Matrix concert recordings on the Internet Archive where Scarlet Begonias and Fire On The Mountain are played during the same concert.  This is a computer generated list.  There are 163 concerts listed here. There are 217 concert recordings with this song combination if we were to include audience tapes also.

Grateful Dead – Winterland 1977-12-27   Leave a comment

I haven’t written about the Grateful Dead for a while now.  Many of the XMas shows of the Dead are not of the best quality.  This is a combination of unavailability of quality soundboard tapes and (often) less than inspired playing on the bands part.  This 1977 show is an exception.  Listen to the whole show on the Internet Archive here.  This tape is re-mastered by “Bertha” from a master reel source by Jay Ashley.  Excellent sound processing of a great show.  The first set ends with a strong “The Music Never Stopped” but the second set is on fire (so to speak).  I personally think this is a better show that Dick’s Pick 10 (1977-12-29) – and its free.

Not to be missed.

Grateful Dead 1977-05-25 (and a little 1977-05-08)   Leave a comment

I only saw the Grateful Dead once.  I was a student (barely) at the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque and it was November 1971.  The Dead played with The New Riders and Jerry joined them during the second half of their set.  A had gone to the concert with a couple of true Dead Heads from my dorm.  How Dead were they? While they had been following the dead tour since school had started in the fall and this was the first time we saw them in Albuquerque this semester.  During the first par to the NRPR set there was ol’ Jerry wandering around the back of the auditorium.

Many Dead Heads swear by Dick’s Pick #18 as a definitive sample of the Grateful Dead in the late 1970’s.  This was recorded in America’s  heartland, Iowa on  1978-02-03 and 1978-02-05.  For capturing not only the Godchaux’s (Donna and Keith). Canonical version of  Scarlet Begonias and Fire On The Mountain.  Donna not in the best of voice that night.  Besides the internet archive makes the  music from this era available for free  (but not 1978-02-03 and 1978-02-05).  I have documented elsewhere how to get to the Grateful Dead recordings on the Internet Archive and how to make copies of even the streaming versions of the Dead shows on the Internet archive (Steal This Show!). The (free) music available at this site is more varied than the releases in the Dick’s Picks Series and (in my opinion) is often mixed with a more exciting and live style.  Some of the official archive show releases from the Dead organization seem to have the life sucked out of them in the re-mixing process.  As good as the February, 1978 shows are I suggest that you take a listen at some of the May, 1977.  The Dead has a great run of shows that month.

Grateful Dead 1989 Perfomances   2 comments

Table of Contents

1989 Tour Statistics & Notes

Spring 1989 California

Spring 1989 East Coast

Dead.Net Releases From 1989

  • 890704 Truckin’ Up To Buffalo Rich Stadium
  • 891016 Nightfall Of Diamonds  Meadowlands Arena
  • 890707  Crimson White & Indigo – JFK Stadium
  • 1989 – 1990 Without a Net
  • Alpine Valley Music Theater in 1989  DVD

West L.A. Fadeaway Alpine Valley Music Theater in 1989

The Buffalo and Meadowlands concerts are not, in my opinion, the best of 1989.  Nightfall of Diamonds in particular falls short of being a great show.   However, like all Dead.Net releases the sound remixing is great.  The vocals are far richer on these releases than on the more raw tapes found on the Internet Archive.   Crimson White & Indigo is based on the  89/07/07 JFK Stadium Concert.   This is a Dead.Net release which I do not own, so I am going on what I hear on the raw non-sound board recordings on the Internet Archive.  The show includes a  nice Scarlet Begonia ->Fire On The Mountain combination and a ‘big arena’ sound that some may find exciting.  Without A Net was produced by Phil.  Three cuts are from 1989.    The production seems a little ‘cold’ to me.  There is a DVD concert video which is a lot of fun: Alpine Valley Music Theater in 1989 DVD you can rent this at many video stores (or watch clips of the concert DVD available on YouTube and elsewhere).

Internet Archive Dead Soundboard Recordings – 1989

There are some interesting shows here and some fantastic (and unique)  performances of individual songs.  Brent and Jerry are interacting with amazing grace.  Phil is flying.  Jerry is in fine voice and guitar form.  I am listing in this section only shows on the Internet Archive with sound board recordings for 1989.  There are other gems out there on the Internet Archive which are available only in audience recordings.  I have concentrated here on Soundboard (and where possible, Matrix) recordings of these two tours.

Internet Archive Usage Notes

In a prior post I explained two ways to capture “streaming media” off the Internet Archive.  In this post I will give some pointers on finding Grateful Dead recordings on the Internet Archive.  A good place to start is the Grateful Dead Collection Home Page.  Try the link:  Grateful Dead Shows on This Day in History.  Listen to what others are downloading.

The Internet Archive supports an advanced search option.  You can use the search templates provided here to narrow your search.  Just change the date and/or target song phrases to match your needs and paste the text into the search Box.
