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.
For the Download series but not Dicks Picks you get them in jpeg format from
loathemegacorp dot com/deadpieshop
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?
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.
1974, or 1973 i hope....hint hint
dick's picks 22
OK, the information on Dick's Vol. 23 states that it's from two shows on February 23 and 24, 1968, in Lake Tahoe. Anyone got any idea which songs are from which shows? A
Also, the photo in the CD tray shows a marquee listing a third date (the February 22), which makes me wonder if a tape exists for that, as well.
And were these shows really at a bowling alley, as suggested by the other photo in the tray?
It was a mirage my friends, a fever dream brought on by the heat.
The desert does strange things to a man, and you may see things that aren't really there. Wonderous visions of CD/DVD packages that miraculously unfold into pyramid-thingies, imaginary road trips of your imagination populated by camel-riding skeletons and bridges in the clouds. Web pages that appear and disappear in the blink of an eye, leaving only a tiny after image of an album cover to mark their passing.
Have a cool drink, find a comfortable seat, and wait. And wait. And wait, in breathless antici.................pation. Perhaps the visions will come again.
Stuck in my brain all day at the studio, couldn't wait to get home and order and......poof! It was gone! I am sure it will be back and most definitly worth the wait!
Did anybody else see this? On the storefront for a few hours today, a small image with a dysfunctional hyperlink - 2 CDs and one DVD.
Could it just have been my overheated imagination?
