Steppin' Out

Does anyone have any insight as to why this is out of print?
Is it somehow related to the Europe 72 box set being available?
I apready have a copy on Arista but was wanting a Rhino branded cd (personal quirk)
Comments please.

DP 19

Wow, DP 19 (October 19, 1973) seems to be gone also. One of my favorite DP's. Glad I got that a few years ago. I guess the DP's aren't selling with everyone waiting for the 72 box set due out next month.

DP14

Since hearing that the DP's might be vanishing from the store, I've purchased quite a few DP's recently. DP14 is one of those. Get #14 while you still can. You will not be sorry.
Please bring back DP33. I would really like to purchse this. There is very little released 76 out there and this one should be made available. On second thought, bring them all back.

To all the friends who gave me advices about Denver '73 and '72 releases (I already have Rhein , Hundred Year and others, and I personally would recommend 'em to..everybody, so thanks the same!)....thank you, I have stuff to work on, now.
That's why I love this place..it's kind of a family!

Denver 1973

Yeah, you can't go wrong with Denver 73- but if you prefer long spacy jamming, I recommend DP14. It's 4 discs and has 2 full blown PITB's and a great Dark Star. It's my favorite release from 1973. All the Dicks Picks from 1972 are pure gold, too.

72 > 73 > 74

Denver '73 is outstanding, as mentioned by cbs73. Do check the release anthology, above, to read info on a bunch of music. DP's 1, 14, 19 and 28 give you a good taste of 1973.
From '72, DP's 11, 23, 30 & 36 are very good. Steppin' Out, Rockin' the Rhein and Hundred Year Hall all feature terrific music from the Europe '72 tour.
DP's 7, 12, 31 and RT 2.3 feature great shows from 1974.

The differences from 1972 into 1973 and 1974 are amazing, following the new tunes released on Wake of the Flood and Mars Hotel.

Denver 73

I'll go out on a limb and say Denver 73 is the best RT release so far. It's a great recording of a great performance. Disc 2 is pretty awesome all by itself.

What about Denver '73?

I'd like to know opinions about this Road Trip, Denver '73...don't know if it's worth buying it (or if I'd better choose another one: I bought - in the Road Trips series, Austin '71, April Fool's '88, Rock Pow Wow '69, Fillmore East '70).
My favourite Dead's year it's 72 (and maybe I'll buy DP Jersey City '72 together with it..), don't know anything about '73..
Would you like to help me, please?

Thanks for the heads up

I saw they sold out on the site. I found an inexpensive copy on cd from a competitor. Still filling in blanks in the collection but I'm not interested in downloading official releases. I want the real deal hard copy. Downloading Further and Ratdog boards is something altogether and I'm willing to pay for good Flacs on these. Official releases I want the package delivered with care and with all the covers and liners that belong to the release. If they force the whole download thing I'm done. I already have tons of terra bytes of legal music but
I'd I'm buying something I want that extra care. Remember, the long walk is part of the gift. In this case I am paying for the gift.
