@ L. Mo

I'm pretty sure NONE of the RT selections for the subscription have yet been published. The Big Rock Pow Wow will NOT be the first item to be included in the subscription. That was RT 4.1, and the first selection in the subscription will be RT 4.2.
PTB - PLEASE TELL US THE DATES (even in generalities is ok with me : like the first will be from '76, the second from '84, the third will be from '67, etc.) Thanks...

Maybe

I over-reacted, but I still don't like the ploy of inducing me to purchase a blind item in order to get "previously unreleased music." I think the incentive of waiving shipping fees is a nice and sufficient inducement for a subscription. Don't withhold music.

Of course, I could probably get it elsewhere. That's not the point. I would rather support Rhino, but I do not like being taken advantage of.

Fist Roadtrips for 2011...

...is the Big Rock Pow Wow that's been up for a while. At least we know 1/4 of the shows to be issued. But for those of us who have chosen NOT to buy this release, it becomes a $25 payment for the bonus disc and "free" shipping to have the subscription. Not worth it, imo. And what if the other three releases are 88, 93 and 94?

Great Idea!

I will be watching and participating in this topic, seeing how this is a new idea. I think it should be discussed amongst the fans....thanks Marye!

road trips dates

It's nice the updates to the subscriptions page...will they publish also the dates once they have that finalized? I'm pretty sure the prevailing opinion is that we'd like to know the dates BEFORE slapping our money down...

Uncle John's Subscription Band?

You know, I was thinking (dangerous, I know!) about buying a Road Trips subscription, then I decided to just relax, mellow out and just listen to the 02/11/70 Uncle John's Band from the 30 Days contest.

The lyrics sounded different this time from what I remembered so I wrote 'em down the way I heard 'em. :)

Well, the first sales are the hardest sales, don't you worry anymore.
But when life looks like Easy Street there is danger at your door.
Think this through with me, let me know your mind.
Wo-oah, what I want to kno-ow, is are you kind?

It's a Buck Chaser's Choice, my friend, better take my advice.
You've got all the tapes so now -- sort the fire from the ice!
Will you come with me? Won't you come with me?
Wo-oah, what I want to kno-ow, "Where'd pitch control go?!"

Goddamn, well I declare! Have you seen the like?!
The vault is filled with lawyers' balls, their motto is, "Don't Publish Me!"
Come hear Uncle John's Band, by the riverside.
Come with me or go alone, don't want to take subscriptions home.

It's a lame story the CEO told me, it's the only one he know.
With the chopped up sets he come, thinkin' with my cheque he go.
"Order now, don't wait!" "Bonus Disk? Too late!"
Wo-oah, Europe wants to kno-ow, "How much is ship-ping?!"

You live in the silver mine that was called "The Beggars' Tomb."
You bought all the violins, thinking, "I got all the tunes!"
Everybody's choice! You don't hear our voice!
Wo-oah what I want to kno-ow, "Where'd the great shows go?"

Come see Uncle John's Band, by the riverside.
Got some things to talk about, here beside the rising tide.
Come see Uncle John's Band, playing to the tide!
Come on along or go alone, I'd love to take some movies home!

Who-oah, all I want to kno-ow, "Where did the songs go?"
Come hear Uncle John's Band, by the riverside.
Got some things to talk about, here beside the rising tide.
Come hear! Uncle John's Band! Playing to the tide!
Come on along or go alone, I'd love to take some music home!

I wish ...

for once Pomo1 would say how he really feels!

Love the idea of a subscription, but I am a snob of sorts and do not buy each edition. Please, let us know what they will be and I will pronounce my money pluncked.
