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!

Dick's Picks

I am trying to complete my collection of CD's of Dick's Picks, I need #28, 30,32,33 which currently can only be abtained by down loading the music. Is any one willing to sell or burn for me these Dick's Picks CD's?
P.S. see you all in Denver on May 7th.Native

Don't they usually give you

Don't they usually give you a chance to case and desist before they actually sue? I probably wouldn't mind downloading the Dick's Picks releases I don't have, if I could also download all the appropriate artwork so I can print up my own version that at least looks like the originals when they're sitting in the CD box next to the others.

That brings up an interesting question...

If somebody has downloaded a legal version of a DP, and somebody who has a store bought physical copy makes a cover scan and gives it to the first person free of charge, is there a copyright violation or would it be considered fair use?

Or will a Rhino lawyer use some pissy little thing like that to justify their existence? Hmmm.

Brilliant

Thank you so much cosmicbadger. That's perfect. I knew they'd be somewhere - I just didn't know where.

I can't figure out why they are no longer available from dead.net. Sure, I've elected to download a release instead of buy the CD (in the case of Dick's Picks) but that's not to say I don't burn the tracks to disc as soon as I get them. The fact that these used to be available and suddenly disappeared, apparently intentionally, rather than inadvertantly as I had hoped/assumed, is puzzling.

Anyway, thanks again cosmicbadger. Maybe there are Dick's Picks cover art scans out there somewhere.

Will anything be reprinted in CD format?

I was planning on buying some of the Dick's Picks CD's that I was missing, but when I checked the store, I see quite a few of the ones I wanted are only available as downloads. Are there any plans to do any reprints, are you guys basically done with the CD format?

Downloadable cover art

Hi guys

It used to be possible to download PDF cover art for every release - these just disappeared at one point. I've purchased a lot of Dick's Picks and Download Series from the website in the last year and assumed that cover art was supposed to be included with downloads because in the downloading tool, a picture of the cover would appear in a little window. However I've never received any cover art files (except for the Road Trips Full Show downloads).

I contacted GD Customer Service and was told that cover art is not offered. This seems a bit odd to me - front and back PDFs were available for download for any downloadable release, whether one had purchased it or not. Now that I am purchasing several downloads, I'm apparently not entitled even to a picture of the front or back of the CD.

Does anyone have any idea where I could get these? I find it bizarre that the official website no longer provides cover art for downloadable versions of its own products, after having high quality scans up previously. It's no great loss I suppose but I'd really like to print out covers so the spines of my Dead CD downloads aren't all back.

Any thoughts?
