Dick's Picks coming back in print?

I contacted customer service the other day about whether DP 33 would be reprinted on CD, and they told me the store would get them back in on CD sometime in the future (not much more specific than that). I kind of get the sense Rhino is reprinting all of them as they go out of print. I only started buying archival Dead releases in the last four years or so, and haven't had much trouble getting any of them (except DP33). All the Dick's Picks I've ordered up until recently came with the old Grateful Dead Recordings logo, but the two I ordered most recently (DP22 and DP24) both came with a Rhino label.

DP RIP - the Bright Side

As the DP series goes out of print, if you own them look on the bright side: You can sell them for outrageous prices and fund a semester of your kid's college education, lol. (but, they'll have to pry my DP's from my cold, dead, fingers).

OUP Dick's Picks

Bobsdead, I feel your pain when it comes to completing my DP collection. The last one I need is DP 33, which is an especially killer release anyway. I kept putting off buying it, for simple economics, dang. I guess it will be a fun hunt looking for an afffordable copy somewhere.

Its funny, I have no problem with the idea of downloading Road Trips releases, but the DP packaging is just so cool... plus there's the whole "collection" thing. I just don't feel as loyal to Road Trips as a "thing" (but love the music on them, for the most part). So, the quest for DP33 begins.

PS, not that I HAVE all the other DPs - I never bought DP 9, 17, 30, or 32 either, for various reasons. My AUD recording of 8/7/82 (awesome show and tour) is so great that even the cleaned up SBD on DP32 is a let down, for example.

I think so, but I will pass this question on to those who know for sure and report back.

Winterland 73 set query

I saw that there were a number of problems with one of the cuts on the Winterland 73 Box set. Have all the faulty discs been replaced. That is, going forward, when I order the box set and I guaranteed an error free disc 2?

Thanks!

Good luck, you may have to buy used ones...

DP 28, used/like new - cheapest thru an amazon marketplace seller is $99 + shipping. I'd be checking local used CD places first. Amazon was the only place I checked, but there were four or five (from 28 up) that appeared to be unavailable as new.

DP went to 36

But some of them are hard to find, and expensive.

hey bobsdead, the downloads

hey bobsdead, the downloads are available here, and worth every little penny. Also you can try the Ameoba Records in Berkely, or the one on Haight Street, they carry many of the dick's picks cd's both new and used. If you haven't been there it worth the flight out, these are the best music stores on the planet.
Good luck!
