some better news

Well it seems that they are not going to relent on the shipping charges, but there is some good news. If you order the international version of the RT Subscription, you will find that anything else you order at the same time comes with free shipping! Yes I know it means spending more to save what you should not have had to pay, but if you do have any other wishes from the store and have the money, it is worth bundling them with the Subscription

Now Rhino, about that 10% commission..really...

International option now exists

Well now us international buyers have the option to take advantage of the subscription offer. US buyers get free postage and the rest of us still have to pay full shipping of $12.00 per Road Trips without even a discount (in fact an increase of 1 cent)

Well I suppose we should be grateful..it's better than $180.00. But now we know that we are still second class customers. Thanks a bunch.

They say:

"We're just putting the finishing touches on the next couple of Road Trips, and all we can tell you at this point is that they'll both be complete shows (with plenty of additional material to round out the 3-CD format!)." (from the Road Trips subscription announcement 3rd paragraph)

The 'all we can tell you at this point' part gives me some hope that they will be giving us some more info. on show dates eventually, if not soon. I am holding off on ordering for now in hopes to that we'll see some show date announcements before Jan.

Under-represented years

Hopefully the next few RT's will contain shows from 1988, 1984 and/or 1986.

a few suggestions
'84 - 7/1 Pine Knob, 7/13 Greek
'86 - Alpine Valley
'88 - Alpine Valley, Oxford, Laguna seca,

I say Pine Knob '84 for a few reasons, not only my first show, but listening to this on Archive.org and it was a ripping show from start to finish. The jam out of He's Gone is particularly tastey

I like to read the menu, first, before ordering

I usually order the entree after perusing the menu. Knowing what concert date(s) will be released in the RT package will have a direct impact on my willingness to participate in the offer. Thanks to Rhino and dead.net for listening and, most importantly, making these recordings available.

At this point

We're trying to figure out exactly what we're buying and how the process works. As I've mentioned elsewhere, and a previous poster here, we've got a couple of months to figure this thing out. Personally, I'm just looking for a terms and conditions statement to help me with my decision. Since I have bought the entire series so far, the subscription idea is attractive. I just have to decide whether the subscription format is worth it for me to have my money in Rhino's bank account in January waiting on a November release, or in mine to be spent when the November volume is actually issued.

Sorry if I offended anyone. Just speaking in generalities.

Saying I don't want to purchase

Is not complaining, it's called making a choice.

roughly $7.31 per disc

Roughly $7.31 per disc and people are complaining. Go figure. But then again, people were complaining about selections on the 30 days of free music. I repeat, complaining about free music. It goes to show, even if the Road Trips were given away free, there would still be complaining.
