Show #90 – David Lemieux (Grateful Dead Archivist) (5/3/11)

David Lemieux is the official audio and video tape archivist for the Grateful Dead.  He’s overseen countless live CD and DVD releases since 1999, when he took over the position after the passing of Dick Latvala, the original Dead archivist. He also hosts a daily segment called Today in Grateful Dead History on Siruius/XM radio.  Lemieux chats with Icon Fetch about the band’s most ambitious project yet, Europe ’72 – The Complete Recordings, a SEVENTY TWO disc box set chronicling what many believe to be the Grateful Dead’s finest tour.  He also talks about how he came to be in charge of these most-hallowed recordings, and how much is really left unheard in the vaults.
