Just downloaded Dick's Picks 36 from ITunes - there's a noticeable hiss in background. It's most noticeable hiss of handful of Dick's Picks I have - is it the release or maybe an issue with the download?
So, anyone received their Dave's Picks?
And, for goodness sake, who is the boob at Rhino that went with Dave's Picks instead of Dave's Faves? I know it isn't proper English, but at least it rhymes.
Dick's Picks, Dave's Faves.
Dick's Faves sounds dumb, as does Dave's Picks.
C'mon guys it's time. Here's my setlist:
Picasso Moon 3-27-95
Morning Dew 3-26-95
Brown Eyed Women 6-3-95
It's All Over Now 7-2-95
Desolation Row 7-2-95
Shakedown Street 5-29-95
Days Between 12-19-94
P.S. I know '94 is not well represented on my list. It does not mean that '94 is not worthy of another single release in my opinion. All good things in all good time (I hope).
Realgone to re-release DPs 32 & 33 on Jan.24,2012. I'm sure price will be up there as were the three (34,35 &36) re-released in Nov.
Im missing a few Dicks Picks which are no longer on the GD Store. Does anyone know if there are plans to re-release any of the Dicks Picks that are currently sold out? Im not paying $80 for a an ebay Dicks Picks!
Looks like the price of the upcoming real gone reissue of DP 32 has dropped in price a few dollars to about $32. Scheduled for end of January.
I noticed Dick's Picks 32 is available for pre -order on Amazon now. About $40. It isn't cheap but then again it is when you consider what a copy has been going for from Amazon Re -sellers and EBay sellers. I haven't checked to see if 31 and 33 are also reissued in this batch. I only needed DP 32 to complete the series.
I'm with you lamagonzo. Hopefully Rhino is planing to do the right thing. Start by hiring a new Quility Control Dept, because the current employees did not do their job with the Europe'72 Complete Recordings Steamer Trunk . Too many corners were cut. Start by sending out replacement CDs and better sleeves to the people that reported problems, now not next year.
E72 turned into a fantastic clusterfuck for a large minority of buyers. Massive problems from start to finish with all the usual ones in between.
You guys need to have a meeting and say: "Hey, Look, We have to bite the bullet on this one and take responsibility for the screw-ups." And they are all screw-ups from the side of the product materials control. The only people who are happy are the ones who got flawless sets and don't mind all those torn cardboard pieces of crap you call sleeves.
What could Rhino do?
Do another press run of Road Trips quality covers, or, even better, plastic cases and set a complete send out to everybody who ordered along with the replacement discs (for those who have defective ones). Do it NOW. ASAP!
What is your alternative? Wait for a waterfall of credit card disputes that costs Rhino $15 a piece besides whatever they have to do to fix it? Maybe the bean counters should look at this one and say. "It's a no-win situation, refund the money for those who are complaining and keep it from those who don't. Maybe it'll be a wash.
But wouldn't it be great if they did the entirely RIGHT thing?
It's like there are competent people and not so much working at Rhino and you never know what kind of job they are going to do. Maddening!
So, how does realgone music work?
I went to their site and and got nothing about how to actually get the discs. Is it all through Amazon?
