They've already said "complete shows"

The last edit of the Subscription sales page stated something like "the four shows hadn't been finalized but they could say the first two would be complete shows", so I'll bet it'll be the complete night of one show and use the other night to fill out discs like they did the RT 4.2 April Fools show.

Assuming that Denver '73 is correct...

...do we know which night it is, 11/20 or 11/21?

Checked the store today (4/2) and all the Road Trips photos are the regular ones, maybe it was some kinda April Fools teaser just for the day. Hopefully it will be announced in the next couple of weeks if the Subscription is supposed to ship in May.

hey Coevette

the picture u see as my personal image is the new cover of the Denver '73 road trips, the new one, i think it'll be available for the last week of april...maybe sooner...if u go to the Store, in the last RT, the april foolsone , u'll find the new cover...think is sort of an Easter egg!!

Scheduled publish date for next in the series

Anyone know when we will get some details around the third issue of road trips for 2011? Year of Show, expected ship date? Looking forward to it. Bought the subscription and have been pleased so far.

Cheers!

WHAT IS THE NEXT ROAD TRIPS 4.3 RELEASE ????

Just looking for info on what next release might be, anyone?? Have really enjoyed 1988 RT pick...they need to KEEP THE 1980's GOING!!!! Please dont hit us with 1973 ( as hinted in bonus disc), we've had PLENTY of releases from all series from 1970's.

HERE's HOPING FOR A 1981 , '84, or '85 ROAD TRIPS release in MAY '11!!!!!!?!?!?!

Yeah, looks like the free shipping is the only benefit...

...of buying into the subscription. That bonus disc won't have much in the way of packaging, history tells me, and good sounding copies of the complete show are pretty available from what I've been told. My copy should be arriving from a friend in a few days - he was surprised that TPTB would use that show to cherry-pick a bonus disc with, said it was good enough for a complete release. There is a shortage of "official" late 80's Dead releases though, happy to see this release...wish there would've been enough quality Dylan/Dead stuff to make a box set.

Glad

Happy I didn't get suckered into ordering the subscription by the cheap marketing ploy of withholding music unless you blindly purchase four RTs in advance while they earn interest on your purchase. Kind of reminds of the NFL.

Anyway, I would not have purchased the 1988 Meadowlands show. Nothing against those heads that like that era, but it is just not my cup of tea. Plus, I already have a very nice copy of the Cleveland 73 show which apparently will be the bonus.

If you don't already have that show, it features a 40-plus minute Dark Star!

REGARDING 4.2 & RT suscription

As mentioned above, what a great release for 4.2 - 1988! I'm completely happy with this release, and certainly 1988. Brings me to my point, the email for RT suscrip gives away ( I think ) that the May'11 RT 4.3 will be from Fall '73...this probably will keep from buying the full year subscription. My reason I decided a few weeks ago of course has to do with the time periods.

I just feel like they have covered way too many Dicks Picks & ROAD TRIPS (already) from the '60-'70s. I love the 1979 releases we got from RT, but they have just not put out enough 1980s-early '90s with either series. I am "Brent era" music lover, and i'm hoping for more 1980's in particular...

I know Jerry had issues for alot of these years, BUT COME ON?!?!?! Where are more releases from '81-85?!??! GREAT YEARS. Would also like a RT this year from 1991 with Hornsby in his prime( some great Jack Straws)...Anyway sorry to ramble, I am very happy with 4.2- 1988!!!
