Spring 1990 Vinyl

I originally posted this under the thread for the cut down version of Spring 1990 but this may be a better place

Taken from soundstagedirect web site

Friday Music is pleased to announce the exclusive 180 Gram Audiophile 4 LP Box Set of the Grateful Dead's "Spring 1990- So Glad You Made It." This ltd. ed. set is a treasure trove of highlights from 6 of their finest shows from their legendary Spring 1990 tour. Filled with 20 unreleased gems, Dead classics & rarities abound in this lengthy audiophile dream box. Tracks include "Loser", "Scarlet Begonias," "Estimated Prophet," "Playing In The Band" & The Rolling Stones "The Last Time."The LP box & labels also feature the artwork of Wes Lang, including a LP art insert suitable for framing.

Presumably they will use the same tapes to master the LPs.

indexing tracks.

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...

re: diferent lineup question

Does not Dap 1 and Dap 4 have the same band lineup? Ah, the art of bullshit strikes again.

By golly it is a different line-up

1974 and 1976 differ not on the keyboards, but with the number of drummers!! David does it again with a great Pick.

Keith and Pigpen

Could be, but unlikely on the heels of the Europe 72 box...Still guessing early 80's though...

Dave's Picks Vol 4

Although, it could be a Keith and Pigpen show.

Dave's Picks Vol 4

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.

DaP 4

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...
