I think on the Rhino site it says why it's the theme...i bought it hook line and sinker they said only 9,000 copies and didn't want to not order and pay over 200$...i think the book and memobilia shoot up the price and let's face it it's for the rich or the very addicted...how much was the 1st limited box set? the 1969 box set? Originally...but the 1990 box set is incomplete and there's already been 3 shows at least released from that tour...dozin at the knicks, Nassau 90, the cardboard one with the turtles on it...so 3 right there...i guess it was a good tour even the dead thought so many years ago...lot of passion and energy in those shows...i think they will be released eventually as seperate show all 6 is what the box set will include, so 6 more shows that are not the previously released shows, the 1972 box set did dupe 2 or 3 shows but it would've left holes if they didn't as the promise was every show in the tour, this is just 6 shows with a good rounded out set list to include as many different songs as possible with great quality as well and i'm sure it was as they were professionally recorded...almost all of the dicks picks sound professional except some really early one's like 1968 and 1970...anyway no notice on here thankfully i got an e-mail and i'm out of 200$ but i made this commitment in 1997 or so...i still say the grateful dead is the best live band ever...maybe there were better bands overall but none were better live at least not on a coutinous basis.

Dick's Picks

Taking into consideration my listening tastes and trying to provide SOME variety, I'd suggest any 5 of the following 6: Vol 29 (5/19,21/77), Vol 26 (4/26,27/69), Vol 23 (9/17/72), Vol 18 (2/3,5/78), Vol 14 (11/30,12/2/73) and Vol 12 (6/26,28/74). I'm sure 99 others would give 99 different answers. You can't go wrong with any of the Sept 72, Fall 73, 74 or 77 releases. And 70 & 71 are darn good years too (just not my absolute favorites).

WOH, wait, I forgot about Vol 10 (12/29/77)!!!

Which Dick's Picks would you pick?

Hey Now! Happy Independence Day!

I recently came into a little bit of cash & was hoping to extend my live Dead collection. I have never purchased a Dick's Pick, but was looking at some of them in the Dead.net Store. Here is my question to all you Dead Heads out there: If you all of a sudden had some money to spend, and did not have any already, which 5 Dick's Picks would you invest in for certain?

Thanks in advance,
Angel
Lawrence, KS
