Hey guys~Constests

Sorry for the delay...I've had family medical problems and tremendous pressure from all angles. Please send out good vibes to my Mom to get all better.

I'll be doing more contests, but alas probably not for a few weeks, as I have had to put other projects, and still mailing out the rewards ahead of making a new quickie for ya guys.

Luckily, I've finally got time and a little sleep after the whole holiday fiasco (mom's hospitalization) has been going on.

Love ya,
CC

Ok We've Got Our Weekly Winner

Thanks HD...We've got our weekly winner for this weeks contest. The answer was (one of my favorite shows):

All Along The Watchtower 06-23-1988 Alpine Valley, East Troy, WI

This Weeks winner is.....Hockney

This show is a whopper, and has that "Swishy Jerry" Sound when the sound man fed the vocals and Jerry's guitar into an automatic panning device that swished from the left speaker to the right and back again fairly rapidly. Here is one of my favorite all time Dead Hour shows with David Gans featuring this stellar show with a Blackbird>Brokedown Palace encore! GD Hour #556, thank you Mr. Gans.

Also this has one of the best 80's Morning Dews in GD history.

UPDATE ON Winners:
Sorry for the delay on the Sunshine Daydream Video....I had to buy more DVD's and the snow/cold weather hampered my car...I've got them now and will be sending those out On Wednsday.

Nice video, Canyon!

Love the graphics! I know I can find this one, but unfortunately, I've been swamped the last few days. :(

Never even looked for a forum topic for the RT, duh.

I was just checking the store page occasionally to see if they'd opened up a comment thread there. I get lost digging around in the forum hierarchy.

I was remembering that $180 as the total with S/H, not just S/H alone. Couldn't go back to refresh my memory since those 31 days comment threads had been removed. Cheaper by half now, that's such a HUGE difference I'm inclined to think that it was a mistake in the first place.

Tis ok to have the disucssion here though

I don't mind the disucssion here...we have to remember our over seas counterparts for sure. In fact we had a Europe Tour banner for Furthur Tour last year for ya. A nice Tie Dye Sheet with those words big and bold.

More than ten bucks cheaper

The price of a subscription with standard international shipping is now $143.50, whereas it was originally $275 ($95 for the discs + $180 shipping). Originally it was cheaper with Rush shipping, but as that was by UPS then extra charges galore would have to be added due to their policy of presenting packages to customs and charging extra on your doorstep for doing that, on top op the customs charges. I estimated that the Rush option would also end up costing around $275 in total. For the standard shipping they have knocked around $130 off the cost of shipping four packages, i.e. around $32 less per package (more than the cost of the RT itself). As regards release dates, it states that the shipping dates will be February, May, August & November. To align the series with the calender year it seems that there will be a RT 4.5 in November - in previous years No.1 of a new series has been released around November. Will the price of individual RT's be higher as individual purchases as and when they are released? Who knows, but they will all be 3 CD sets so it is quite possible. If so, the subscription becomes even more attractive (except that you have to pay the whole cost up front). I am also a grumpy old pessimist, but Marye helps to keep my pessismism in check, bless her. I think the basic rule of thumb is that people are good and corporations are bad - until proven otherwise. Bah, humbug.

The Big Remaining Question is...

...if and how much the price of the individual releases will be jacked up, if subscription sales turn out to be disappointing. I don't know when the first RT in the batch will go up, or if they'll have a preorder for the individual release. The subscription offer ends Jan. 31 and the first release could be a few weeks after that.

I'm such a pessimist. I do have an offer to join a "subscription collective" with a few other folks. A couple of them are completist fiends and would cry if they miss the Blessed Holy Bonus Disc - but they can't afford the subscription so they plan to chip in together.
