I wonder what retail stores still sell CD's? Borders was the only I knew and that is gone. I would like to get #35.
Real Gone Music will debut in November with 12 titles headlined by the Grateful Dead’s Dick’s Picks, Vols. 34, 35 & 36. “Dick” was Dick Latvala, the official tape archivist for the Dead until 1999, whose inspiration and encyclopedic knowledge of the band’s vaults spawned the fabled Dick’s Picks series of Dead concert volumes. Comprising 36 volumes, Dick’s Picks follows the band on its long, strange trip through a multitude of eras, tours and venues, featuring handpicked shows that display the band at its most visionary, improvisational height. Real Gone Music will bring this cache of Dead concert brilliance to record stores. Many have never been previously available at retail.

Real Gone's release of the Grateful Dead titles represents the first time these handpicked collections of live shows have been released to retail stores.
This is the first time for me on the forum so i thought i'd better make it count:
I've read today that Real Gone Music (a label specialising in music thought to be 'real gone') will reissue the Dick's Picks series. They will start in November with 12 titles (according to their site), headlined by 3 stunners from the series (DP:34, 35 and 36). For real: check realgonemusic.com
I know what to do and so do you guys, i can't be the only one still looking for volume 34.
By the way, when on the Real Gone Music site please drop a suggestion in the designated box. Fillmore West 1969 Complete Recordings anyone?
Come on let's make it happen, it's the right thing to do!
Also noticing that Hundred year Hall is OOP as well.....
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)
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.
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!
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.
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.
