Hey folks ! On Saturday 17th October Liz Kershaw on BBCRadio6Music is talking with myself
about the DeadHeads and history lysegical under the "all killer no filler" banner.
The channel is well hip but oddly silent on the Titans of Psychedelia etc. etc.
Check between 2-4 pm for some pointed critique of Aunty's apparent oversight.
U.K's politically correct "rocktochracy" of journalists heads up !

newsweek special

well of course i bought the newsweek special - where the corporate world tries to cash in on our favourite band - and not meaning to be pessimistic - I couldn't help but notice that in one picture Brent is identified as Robert Hunter, and in another Jerry is referred to 'Captain Trip'. Oh well.

And a up and over the hill on Rt 1 N, Barnes & Noble has the Life and Rolling Stone special editions. There was one Life left and several of the Rolling Stones...

Found the Newsweek SE in Walmart on Rt 1 in Saugus MA

Tonight my quest for the Newsweek came to a successful conclusion, where I was able to find it at the new Walmart on Rt 1 in Saugus MA. They've got several copies. Did not see the Life nor the Rolling Stone Special Editions...

Happy hunting!!!

Newsweek in Boston??

No I can't find this anywhere. Sounds like we've been to similar places. I got the RS one when it came out originally, at the Costco in Everett. Same with their Jerry tribute issue (my 3yo noticed it!).

Any luck with this thing? I travel for work and have been all over the Northeast and no one seems to have it.

If you find it, please let me know coltrane74@gmail.com. I'll let you know if i do as well.

Update - RS Special

So, not one to shirk their awesome responsibility, Rolling Stone has reissued their excellent 2013 Grateful Dead 'The Ultimate Guide' Special Collectors Edition Magazine. In stores now.

I couldn't find any difference between the two, except: (we are one anal group of fans, aren't we?!)

Bar code & "Display Until" info. Old is "..until July 4, 2013", and new is "..until Sept 10, 2015"

Price! Old is $11.99, new is $12.99

Rolling Stone logo on spine: old is larger, new is smaller.

..and my copy is cut slightly larger than the 2013.

Other than that, all cover graphics and inside content appears exactly the same.

RS does have the advantage in this Special Edition game, since all they have to do is mine their own archives. But they do it quite well. The only apparent new material that wasn't already in Rolling Stone magazines is an Intro by Bobby. Happy reading!

looking for a copy in the Boston area - no luck so far...

Was wondering who in the Boston area had any luck finding the Newsweek Special Edition magazine on the Grateful Dead. I have not found it. I've tried my local CVS, Barnes & Noble in Saugus, Target in Everett, not to mention a couple of local supermarkets without much luck.

Any local suggestions???

Thanks,

Bob

@RWhitley

I think this magazine article is part of the 50th Anniversary Newsweek special issue which goes for $10 online. I'm not sure where you're getting the $50 price tag from, unless the newsstand price is different. The price point you are stating for the box set is correct fact-wise.
