well Dstache, to fair them there was Cow Palace too.. I liked that m0stly, but it sounded a bit flat and sterile to my (admittedly way past their best) ears
Anyway since the Tapers Section has adopted such a new upbeat, music-focused peace and love type vibe where can an inveterate whiner like me hang out these days?
Really it is truly disappointing that the 'Official Announcements' forum here is such an empty, space right now, gathering dust over the past 3 months. This site (esp the request list forum) is full of good ideas. Has the organisation nothing to say to us? No feedback? Not even a teeny weeny thank you.............maybe just a little light....a tiny tease.....please...someone...
Echoing Spacebrother's comments, I too have been disappointed in the dearth of official GD releases over the last 2 years. Since DP 36, which was released in 2005 I think, we have had only 2 releases, the Fillmore '69 boxed set and 3FTV. While the boxed set is GREAT, I don't quite understand while a second edition hasn't been made available, or even why it had to be a limited edition to begin with. As for 3FTV, quick run throughs of what would eventually become great tunes don't appeal to me.
What shows would I like to see? Wow, I don't know, just about anything from 1969 or 1972-1978, and any fine show from the Brent era. It is easier to say what shows I don't want. I know this is going to be extremely unpopular, but I think the Europe '72 shows are extremely OVERRATED. And even if the shows aren't overrated, what with the original Europe '72, Hundred Year Hall and Steppin' Out, isn't that tour already well represented? Of course, I would like to see more fall '72 shows, and we all know that tour has been well represented (9/17,21,27), so what do I know? I'm also not into the post-Brent releases.
When did 3FTV come out? Wasn't it the end of July? Should be by the end of October if their planning on four per year. But who said anything about four per year! It'd be nice. What would be cool is if the eventually forthcoming release had DP37 on it!
That would surely improve everyone's mood a tad.
"From day to day, just lettin' it ride,
You get so far away from how it feels inside,
You can't let go, 'cause you're afraid to fall,
But the day may come when you can't feel at all."
Is there any news of anything new coming out? Seems like the cobwebs are growing on the vaults lately. Up until a couple of years ago they were releasing a minimum of 5 or 6 CDs/DVDs a year.
I'm beginning to lose interest because of the lack of output or even news of pending releases.
dunno, will ask!
Will reviews (of catalog items) posted to the old dead.net site reappear on the new site? For instance, I don't see any reviews for the Live from the Cow Palace set.
I also find that some items in the catalog lack contents info (lists of tunes). Would that be from all the rigmarole involved in getting the new site up, or...?
Finally Released last Tuesday...

not sure what pulled download series you're referring to; the download series that was formerly available remains available in the Store here.
If you mean something else, please clarify. Thanks!
thank goodness for .irc
since dead.net, or whatever it is now, can't keep their shit together and pulled all the download series (and all the info pertaining to them)
at least i can download everyone ever released . . .free no less (the way it should be)!!
please make requests in the requests topic so they get seen! I think the relevant topic here is Box Sets...
