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!) ;-)

hi Anomolator!

Thanks for the kind words, which we're passing on to the people who actually did the work, heh...

Also we're passing along your request for DVD Audio releases. (Feel free to post this in the Requests topic, too.)

A very grateful thanks!

Hi izzie and marye!

I know you two get an eyeful of complaints in these forums, so I just wanted to give the both of you a big, grateful thank you for all your patience and efforts in getting the Download Series back. I just checked out the store, and I am so happy to see that the Downloads are there once again! THANK YOU! And a big thanks to everyone involved as well! Can't wait to wrap my head around some more of that good ole Grateful Dead!

Does anyone there at the Dead orginization know if there are any plans for more DVD Audio releases? The Workingman's Dead and American Beauty DVD's sound absolutely amazing, and I would love to hear more of the Dead's material released in a surround sound format. Perhaps the Vault shows? I bet they'd sound pretty sweet!

I would really like to see the store offer the option of being able to download all live and studio albums in the various formats. I am moving away from CDs as they take up too much space and putting all my music in .mp3 or whatever format. I would rather buy from the dead.net store than from iTunes as well. Hopefully, new live music offerings will start to be released on a more consistent basis as well. Just my 2 cents.

Tracklisting is shown as follows
