Thank you for the almanac... it's great to have such a resource...
I couldn't order my DaP 2014 subscription fast enough!
I wouldn't miss it (or any other future release) for the world....
"these things are gone forever, over a long time ago"
thank you steely dan
so any recordings released by the GD (they are a business, like it or not, with lots of marketing) are appreciated.
60s 70s 80s 90s whatever. It's the next best thing to actually being there, which, of course we can't be.
I got on the bus on 7/18/82, and still find 60s/70s GD the most compelling.
I will not post anything further (furthur...HAHAHAHAHA) about this. Promise.
Finally got to read through the Almanac. The Dead World Roundup was especially interesting... being in Mass, I didn't even know about the corporate naming threat to the Jerry Garcia theater, glad that got stopped. I gotta say, what Billy is up to sounds the best to me, hanging out on his organic farm in Hawaii, writing his autobiography (oh yes!).
I didn't see anything about the artist who designed the Almanac cover art though - I really like it. Could this be the aesthetic for the next series of DavesPicks? Anyone know who this artist is?
Just preordered and hope they keep this up!!! i enjoy gettin these goodies in the mail
In the other thread (?) for the 2014 subscription I've already commented on my excitement over this release and what looks like a good year ahead (and subscribed). But I'll say here: I really, REALLY, like the graphics in this almanac. I'll dig around more, but if the artists who did the cover is also doing the 2014 Dave's covers I'll be well content.
Speaking of being content: Holy Moley, such odd hostility... but it's worth noting that from what I can see, there are only two people in this thread who've expressed anger (so, hardly a trend). I
....are so many peeps here so anti - Dead?? I think they are not real Deadheads otherwise they'd have a little respect for GD and Jerry Garcia (RIP:(:(:(). I mean, like , if you don't like their "marketing" (it sounds silly to use this term with the Dead!!), why come here anyway??! I'm gonna get their almanac and keep the TRUE music legacy alive:)!!
pwfurther. You seem like one really unhappy dude. Here's a real novel idea for you. Erase your link to the Grateful Dead, Unsubscribe from their E-Mails, Burn all your cassettes, break all your CD's, erase them from iTunes. That'll show em your no sheep...Have you ever tried just talking to them??? They are VERY Reasonable people. Sarcasm and anger will get you nowhere... Try and have a better tomorow...
Here's a novel idea provide the almanac on a web page. Such a dick move treating your fans like sheep. So many bad marketing decisions since forever. When all that's really needed is an honest approach - consider your audience. And while I'm at it how about you choose concert releases by committee. God forbid you actually turned to your fans for a vote on something like that - no we'll just leave it up to one guy to decide. So many bad decisions that add up to disrespecting your fans who are your customers as well.
I enjoyed it much. Thanks
Great results and I'm sure a lot of effort and talent behind this latest almanac. Very cool, right down to the typefaces. Thanks!!
