Any updates about the packages deals? They were available on the previous site's store but didn't seem to make the transfer to the new one...

In addition to the Mother Mccree, a repress of the 1st Old & in the Way CD would be great if possible as well.

Dick's Picks

brewer, not sure what you're seeing, but I'm seeing DP36 as the first item in Live Music. If you're still having trouble, get back to us, but I'm seeing all the Picks there.

brewer and mitheral, your requests for package deals and Mother McCree have been passed on and as soon as we have any news we'll get back to youse!

Will the package deals for the Dicks Picks series be available again? Such as 1-36 for $650 and the 6 cd deals? Also are there any plans to make the Mother Mccree CD available again?

Dick's Picks Out of Print?

Are the Dick's Picks out of print with only a limited supply available? Having fallen behind on picking up some of the later releases, I would really like to do so now. Used to be an option of buying "sets" of the Dick's Picks for a discount. I also really wanted Vol. 36 as my next one, but not available on the site. Anyone know why?

pomo...

You're not the first to make this request, believe me, and I'll pass this along. (And feel free to use the fine Feedback button at the bottom of the page to make this suggestion as well.)

I cannot speak to what will eventually be possible; if you've been following David Lemieux's excellent Tapers' Section articles each week, you'll know that some of the recordings the Dead made for themselves did not turn out just exactly perfect and in some cases do not exist at all. But, ya never know.

Anyway, will pass your request to the Rhinos... Thanks!

Is it reasonable?

Is it reasonable or even possible for all of the sbds to eventually be available for downloading? My technological knowledge is limited, but it seems to make sense to me to offer everything and let each person buy the shows they need/want. I know I would buy most of the 70 or so shows I attended. As Jerry would have said: "That would be the hippest, man." BTW, Happy Birthday up in heaven.

European Bootleg GD DVDs from Amazon

this review from a buyer just appeared on the Amazon uk site, concerning the so called new 'Still Alive and Well' DVD
-------------------------------------------------
"This release is a total rip-off, and probably even bootlegged. It is not new - I bought it in a store years ago, thinking it was a newly surfaced show. This DVD contains a jumbled collection of - mainly short - tracks from two official releases: "Dead Ahead"(recorded in 1980) and "View from the Vault Vol. IV"(recorded in 1987). There is no continuity at all; one show is indoors the other in a stadium, but at least the lineup is the same.
The official releases are well worth seeking out, but don't accept this poor substitute. "
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I have a similar hacked together bootleg entitled 'BirdSong' and have also now been told of a bootlegged Ticket to New Years being sold thru Amazon in Europe under the title 'Broadcasting Live'

How do they get away with it..Rhino should tell Amazon to stop selling this rip-off material. Check it out on amazon.co.uk search under Grateful Dead DVD.

..and yet another DVD

Might these be bootlegs? I'll have to go check Amazon France,

(Ca me donne l'occasion de faire la pratique en francais! Ecoute, donc! Je suis ne, puis m'agrandis a Montréal!) ;-)
