Thanks for the info. It just seems foolish to me that the Download Series is no longer available, hopefully it is short term and will return. Ratdog, Gov't Mule, Phish, Widespread Panic, and many more all have downloads for sale on their sites, seems like it would be purely a cost effective profit maker as there is no hard product to manufacture, ship, etc. I saw a posting on here the other day by someone that said "alot of Heads he knew are in fact dead", given that statement and the fact that we all are getting older, common sense would tell you that there are less of us today than there was 10 years ago, the longer it takes to get the music out there, the fewer sales there ultimately will be. Don't get me wrong, I am ecstatic every time a new archive release comes out like Three from the Vault, and I do purchase them all, but it should have come out years ago. (Don't get me started on the JGB stuff!) I realize it takes time to remaster stuff, and there is no way to do this every piece of tape in the vault, but it doesn't matter that every show is sonically perfect, the demand is there. If you take look at the Internet Archive at http://www.archive.org/details/GratefulDead and see how many times each show has been downloaded, this proves my point and if they charged a fee to download from there instead of allowing just the streams, that would be a hell of alot income for the band and its staff. Yes I agree the old philosophy that the music is "free" doesn't apply anymore, but it would make alot of people happy if they just made it available. I'll get off my soapbox now.
No, doesn't require an iPod, and the iTunes software has Mac and PC versions. You can play the music, burn CDs, etc. and never use an iPod at all. I used it for years before I bit the bullet and bought the iPod, and boy did I look silly sitting in the airport listening to tunes on my iBook...
The more audiophile among us think there may be better audio formats than the one iTunes uses, so you may want to wait for them to weigh in here. (Or ask over in the Technical Discussion topic in Tapers.)
Ok, thanks. Doesn't itunes require an ipod?
and as soon as we have an answer we'll post it.
Meanwhile, as posted elsewhere, the downloads are alive and well on iTunes, so if that format works for you, go for it.
dawg440, I encourage you to click that Feedback button there on the bottom of your screen. MaryE and I aren't avoiding the question, but it's beyond anything we can 'fix'.
Why can't anyone answer the question of where they went and when they will be back?
I do not see this show listed anywhere on this sight. The show with NRPS was at the Fieldhouse in Iowa City,Ia.Ticket prices,$2.50.$3.00,$3.50. I remember the Riders came out at 7:30 and the Dead left the stage at almost 1am. My first show.
Does anyone have the Grateful Dead version of this song (no the Jerry Garcia one)? I used to have a tape I beieve from Penbroke Pines FL venue with a killer version of this song and I am eagerly trying to find another one.
The fan photos that are (sometimes) getting uploaded and approved, but never appearing. Still working on this.
The even worse problem of posts mysteriously disappearing: we think we're narrowing it down, but meanwhile, please, DO NOT POST YOUR ONLY COPY OF SOMETHING GREAT HERE. It may vanish for no reason, and it ain't the mods. We know the problem exists; we haven't solved it yet. Thank you for your continued patience...
Offhand it sounds like one source or another has the wrong date.
