Mickey Hart told us that although he and the Dead's surviving members — Bob Weir, Phil Lesh, and Bill Kreutzmann — don't personally troll through the band's tape archive, the group takes a very hands-on approach with their live releases: ["We decide on which ones we wanna release, how many a year, and (our label) Rhino does it. And they do a really good job. We have designated someone, and of course we have input into each release. I mean, we control what goes out there. It's our responsibility. We have a wonderful staff who have our sensibilities."] SOUNDCUE (:17 OC: . . . have our sensibilities)
