I loved the whole dicks picks and would love the Daves Picks but there really needs to be a larger number released. Instead of increasing the total by 1000 each year, is this to correspond to the year, more should be released now while we are still alive and then decrease a little each year as we unfortunately die off. I am not meaning to sound complaining but while I am at it it would be nice if the subscriptions either went on sale earlier or at a different time of year. Holidays the money has been tight and this year I missed my subscription by less than 5 bucks when it was on discount and it went offsale 1 payperiod too early unfortunately. If there were a longer time frame perhaps it would be easier to gauge the number of copies wanted. If they were all re released I would buy each and every one but only 1 or 2 at a pop. I somehow could manage 1 release every 7 to 10 days but getting even 125 dollars together at once during the winter is tough. One only need look at ebay or Amazon. Com to see how some folks are scalping these releases. It shouldn't be some elite club allowed to own these discs and I do prefer a nice hard copy to any download orburnt disc. Sorry, just my 2 cents. The Pure Jerrys can really be crazy priced, I saw the one with Robert Hunter being sold for around $300, a crime.

I would like to see something from summer tour 1990. My first choice if it were a single show would be 7-21-1990 at the horrid Tinley Park. Most folks that I know feel that it was the best of the 3 night run. It is often overlooked due to Monday's show being his last but that first night just melted together and it was the only time I ever felt like that without any psychedelic enhancement. The only low spot was a below average Just A Little Light. Next choice would be a small box set of all three nights. I am trying to go off memory and it has been some time since I really delved into summer 1990 but the China-Rider from Deer Creek is superb when Jerry is high in the mix. I'll post other requests separate.

I see that the "lost tapes" are some shows from 1970 and 1971. If the March 13 '71 show at Michigan State is one of 'em...that was my first show (and a grand colorful ol' time it was!)...so...yeah...I want that one!

An amazing show worthy of full release. We need more early-mid eighties releases. Second set is stunning, including best intro to Morning Dew I ever heard. Remember this was during Reagan years and threat of nuclear war was very real. "The Day After" TV special about nuclear attack on US had aired previous winter, Reagan was pushing "Star Wars" missile defense and MX missiles moving around the country on trains. The mournful, chilling intro to Dew captured the moment in time, the Dew itself was spot on, and then to segue into Throwing Stones was icing on the cake. First ever Why Don't We Do It In The Road is also worthy of preservation. Please consider for Dave's Picks!
