DP 33 is back!

Hi all - just an FYI, based on our discussion in spring about the DPs going out of print. With no fanfare or announcement, they are indeed reprinting DPs. Or at least, I found that DP 33 was back on CD (and immediately ordered it). The operator actually told me it was not available on CD, and I pointed out that the website now said it was, she confirmed it with her supervisor, and yeay! It is on its way.

So, if anyone is wanting to fill in those DP gaps, now would be a good time (and I feel sorry for any poor slobs who actually paid 100 bucks for a DP on ebay...)

The only other DPs I don't have are 9, 17, 30, and 32. I can't stand the keyboard wash on 9 and 17, and my AUD of DP 32 sounds way better than the SBD to me, but should I get DP 30? Not too blown away by what I've heard, but I've only heard samples of those shows...

I read somewhere that when the Dicks Picks first started they did not think folks would buy lots of multi CD sets so they just put out 'best bits'. Later on they put out near complete shows, missing out some set 1 tunes so they could fit (for example) most of 1 show on 2 discs. Later on the releases got more and more complete. A good place to find out what exactly is on each DP and what is missing is here:

Handfulls, thanks for the info about Rhino (possibly) putting DPs back in print. The DP scalpers will be so sad...

Didn't know if anyone knew this, but...

I have about 15 dicks picks, and recently was informed that there missing alot of songs for complete shows. For instance, DP 1 is 1 disc, but, theres like 10 tracks at the beginning of the show that arnt on the original DP. I've downloaded the complete shows now. Why would they release only part of the show and call it DP? Just curious thats all.

Peace-

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.
