yea i noticed this prally isnt the right forum thing to be asking all this but i dont know what ohter one to do it in so sorry?
yea i know theres 18 bonus discs all together starting with postcards of the hanging from arista, and yes your correct there is one with rockin the rhein, i know what all cds they came with just need to know which ones were plain sleeves so when im looking for them for sale i know if people are lying about it being sealed and such, im real picky and just learned about bonus discs in time to pre order winterland 77. but yea on amazon theres a few fillmore boxes for sale and some are sealed still, given they do cost a fortune, i must have one, i must have all dead on cd that is available in flawless condition, its gonna be rough but im ready for the long haul
The bonus disk with my copy of the three disk Fillmore West set also came in a plain white sleeve.
Maybe it wasn't Rockin the Rhein, but instead the early 72 Music Academy Dick's Pick that I am thinking of, not sure.
The bonus disc for the 69 Fillmore West box definitely did come in a plain white sleeve, but I believe it was included inside the box, so if the box is indeed sealed (which I would be surprised if it was) then the bonus disc should be in there. The Winterland 73 and 77 box sets each included a bonus disc in its own sleeve, but it wasn't plain white, and again it was included inside the box. I know that Rockin' the Rhein also included a bonus disc but I don't know whether it was in a plain white sleeve or not.
Well...cause im looking at gettin the fillmore west 69 box set, and ive asked people selling them, and theyve said the bonus disc comes in a plain white sleeve, also road trips vol 1 no 3 on ebay says the bonus disc comes in white paper sleeve. so if anyone can assist me in my efforts to get all the bonus discs it would be greatly appreciated
but I have never seen a bonus disc come in a plain white sleeve, so caveat emptor.
just wondering if anyone knows when the bonus discs stopped coming in plain white sleeves? I learned about all these bonus discs not too long ago and now have to aquire them and need to know the facts so i dont get screwed when i buy "sealed" ones, cause its already happened
Apparently November 3rd is 'Cracking the Vault' day and a whole raft of material '100s of shows' will appear.
It is not clear what the quality will be of these tapes (not all GD btw), to what extent they have or have not been remastered and how many of them are already out there in torrent land (possibly already remastered by Mr Miller and the like). I am hanging on to my credit card till we get a chance to see what is on offer.
still its exciting and may encourage the rhino mob to pull their fingers out and start selling more whole shows as downloads. A price war on Grateful Dead shows looms????
My its easy to forget how lucky we are to have all these choices and options to worry and argue about :-)
Wolfgang's Vault have started selling GD whole show downloads in MP3 and FLAC starting with the late show from May 15 1970 $9.99 per set
more to come soon apparently. Not sure about the quality, but you can stream them first to test
