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...

Dave's Picks Vol 4

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.

thanks for the heads up

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.
