i have a recommendation for david & jeff concerning the indexing of the tracks on the vault releases. when enjoying shuffle on my various devices & a live dead tune comes up it will start right at the beginning of the tune & then include the between song tuning up to the beginning of the next tune (this is mostly a first set occurrence). i think it would be nice to have the indexing start with the tuning for the appropriate song & end before the tuning for the next song. it is an aural observation made from many years of listening. after all the wonderful releases it is my only "complaint" though i hesitate to consider it such. i mainly listen to whole shows, usually on or around their original show date-which provides for year round listening without playing new year's shows in july-due to the large amount of material out there for our listening pleasure. i do enjoy the shuffle option & that is when the indexing issue presents itself...just a thought...
Does not Dap 1 and Dap 4 have the same band lineup? Ah, the art of bullshit strikes again.
1974 and 1976 differ not on the keyboards, but with the number of drummers!! David does it again with a great Pick.
William & Mary Keith show. You can bitch but you're gonna love it!
Could be, but unlikely on the heels of the Europe 72 box...Still guessing early 80's though...
Although, it could be a Keith and Pigpen show.
Oh yeah, thats right. I forgot about the different line up thing. Something from 68 would be great. I really like the high energy valentines day road trips from 68. Whatever show vol 4 is, I'm sure it will be great. To me, each one has been better than the last.
David Lemieux had said that each volume in a given year will be from a different line up of the band. So, the Vol. 4 has to be pre-Keith or post Keith. I have been thinking along the lines of an early 80's release, but 68 would be great...
I am starting to get very curious about what Dave's Picks Volume 4 will bring us. Volume 1 was 77, Volume 2 was 74, volume 3 was 71....so if volume 4 follows the "3 years earlier" pattern then it could possibly be an amazing show from 1968. Also, the first 3 volumes are from the 70's, so could volume 4 be one more amazing show from that decade?
Whatever show it will be, I have no doubt that it will be a nice treat.
What I don't get is why they don't advertise this on Dead.net. Oh, and I also don't get why they'd leave one side of the record blank for Dick's Picks 2. Seems like a cool concept to put these out on vinyl.
