Garcia Plays Dylan Again (bonus disc)

Here's the update I promised when I initially brought it up last Thursday. The set arrived today, and it does in fact come with the bonus disc. It's a great deal as it is priced up quite a bit on eBay at the moment. Grab it if you need it with the bonus! (Or the Jerry 'Best of)...

Garcia Plays Dylan Again (bonus disc)

According to jerrygarcia.com, this exclusive disc is available with purchases of the main set. I thought this disc had been out of print, so I grabbed one fast! I'll let y'all know if it comes with my order later this week. I hope so! :-)

P.S. The bonus discs issued with the 'Best of' Jerry set (Twisted Radio Waves & More of the Best) are available, too...

Purchase Advice

Spring 1990 and May 77 are both available as digital downloads from dead.net so if you don't need the physical box set you can save a lot of money there.

You have as #1 Europe '72. Go for it! All is what you want - sound, performance and the very fact it's available! Mind boggling.

Comparing Dick's to Dave's sound-wise? Can't do it - Dave's are superior. But almost all the Dick's music-wise are going to satisfy. The Dick's and Europe would shoot your wad, but you'd be up to speed and able to cherry-pick Dave's as you go.

Good luck - you'll make the right decision.

Purchase advice

Hello, new to the site but not new to the Dead. 18 shows attended (alas only 90s shows) and plenty of lost Maxell XL II's. As I write this I am LOVING the second show of Spring 1990 TOO. My question is this: I have some disposable "hobby" income to blow and am planning to grab some Dead discs that I don't usually have the funds for. I am wondering what you guys would choose. Keep in mind most of these choices are at Ebay and aftermarket prices. I have anywhere between $1000 -$1500 to spend.

1. Europe 72 All Music $450 on dead.net
2. Spring 1990 $600 on Ebay (love these shows anyone know where to get cheaper?)
3. May 77 $225 on EBay
4. Winter land 77 $600 on EBay (again crazy price)
5. Dicks Picks 1 - 36 (every one) $950 a local guy is selling on craigslist
6. Misc single shows, Dave's Picks, etc running around $40 - $60 each EBay

I am leaning towards the Dick's Picks package and May 77 but really want to hear your thoughts. I am such a fan of great shows BUT I love high quality sound and my fear is the Dicks Picks won't live up to what I am hearing on Spring 1990 TOO in terms of sound quality.

Thanks and so excited to hear your advice!

Thanks for the resosponse

Both my hearing and my stereo have been ridden pretty hard over the years. They gotta go sometime, but well worth it.

And I have gotten bad copies of discs before, glad to now that isn't the case here. Though I do love Sunrise.
