Just out of curiosity how does everyone else file these releases? Never sure what's best do I go, official, Dicks Picks, Vault, Road Trips, or do I file according to date of gig or release date, or do I just need to chill and enjoy!!
Think I'll go and lie in a dark room.
I'll see what I can find out
I noticed that some of the Pure Jerry releases have also disappeared from the store. In particular - Pure Jerry: Merriweather Post Pavilion - September 1 & 2, 1989. Is it already out of print or just temporarily out of stock?
I sent the following email to customer service, but thought I might get a more satisfactory answer here:
"I can't help but notice that a number of CDs are disappearing from the store on Dead.net, especially some of the Dick's Picks series. With the holidays fast approaching does GDP plan to get more of these in stock? The problem is that many of these albums are still in high demand and their lack of availability at a fair price at dead.net creates an alternate economy that often results in price gouging - an aspect of capitalism that the Dead never supported (I think that's fair to say). Why not let the band/company get some of that money and keep their customers/fans happy at the same time? It's a win-win, no?"
This is especially true of the higher numbered DPs - with the extreme examples being Vols. 25, 28, 32, and 34. The re-sale prices for these are astronomical. I'll gladly give my money to GDP at the listed price. (And I realize that these are available in FLAC, but I prefer having the physical CD. I can make my own FLAC and mp3s, plus if something happens to them I can always just re-rip.)

Thanks much GratefulTed!
Alli: check this version out:
Also, there is a Grateful Dead Streaming Video website that offers many video clips to view.
Hi, I am new to this forum.
I have a quick question for you folks. I am looking for a good youtube clip of the song Shakedown Street. I have listened through a few that come up & was hoping to hear a few of the fans faves too. Thanks in advance!
Just about the entire GD catalogue including the Download Series and Rare Cuts and Oddities can be purchased online in FLAC or MP3 from:
why their catalogue is so much more complete than that from the store here beats me!
made my day.
