I was wondering when this topic and others, in particular
will get linked to the Vineyard? I would like to be able to get to these topics without having to enter the URL for them.
Is there someplace I should report problems or submit requests like this?
this is cool. There's an upside to the impending demise of my 20-year-old TV.:-)
I am excited about the GD Movie coming out on Blue-Ray. It's on its way from Amazon as we speak.
Good to hear your point of view. Now I don't feel like such an outlier to the "norm". Europe72 single-handly destroyed this place whether you had problems with your order or not.
This thread doesn't show up in the vineyard, but it does show up as the "next topic" if you go to the reseed thread. Very weird. Plus, many threads have the wrong main post. It seems like things have been messed up here for what, a couple of months at least? I'm pretty patient but it is getting to be a little too much. Maybe it is time for me to move on, I don't know. It needs to be said that it seems that the powers-that-be are quietly shutting this section of the site down, slowly but surely, not coming out and saying they are doing it, but making it so annoying and difficult to navigage and use that people will just decide to leave on their own.
Maybe I am burned out a bit too. I'm a little over halfway through the Europe 72 and, while all but a couple of shows so far are Very Good (and more than a couple are Great), the rah-rah every show is at least excellent stuff (doesn't Blair write that somewhere?) just irks me. Listen to the Sugarees from the tour. They are boring as heck without any Jerry solos. The notes to 5/11 say that Dick, whose opinion I usually agree with, said that it was his favorite Europe 72 show. About halfway through the 1st set I was wondering if I was insane as the band was very flat. Yeah, it picks up for the second set, but even the Dark Star wasn't as good as it should have been. There was one really nice jam that went on for a bit, but I could just feel that JErry wasn't throwing himself 100% into it, but instead wanted to go back to space/noodling. I know, it's the whole journey/destination argument, but I feel so much more satisfied when a great jam results.
Anyways, the point of the above was that I spent $450 on a box set and there is this real attitude here that that was not enough. If I am a real deadhead, I need to spend another $100 on a subscription for limited issue shows, only one of which they are willing to tell me. And then all the heads clamoring for 80's and 90's shows, Christ! Not to mention '76! The last Road Trips, which I am not purchasing, is a middling show in a middling year. 5 officially released 76 shows was more than enough, now we get another, and people are clamoring for more. I certainly don't want to pay $25 for a show I won't listen to more than 2x. Damn, I'm just rambling but I am fed up with it. I know you can't please everyone all the time. Heck, half the people want compilations and half of us don't. Half of us want only classic shows or at least shows from classic periods (hidden gems, shows where the circulated version has less than stellar sound) while the other half wants every period equally represented or at least well-represented. And the powers-that-be try their best, and we have to show our loyalty for the band we love by buying everything that comes out, no matter whether we like it or not, and no matter whether they tell us what it is or not. Ugh!
On the other hand, Mary hooked me up with tix to the Taxi Tour shows and that was so kind. And there are a lot of great people here. And I really think the powers-that-be are trying hard. I just don't like this limited issue, subscription only, early bird gets the worm thing. And $450 is definitely not going to be a yearly thing for me. It is pretty ridiculous that I paid that for recorded music for one band for one year.
Holding up a few vines right now. Should have em out this week. Just a heads up I'm still alive and rippin'. :) Hope everyone is good and having a Grate October. Someone tell me who's up on the Bicentennial vine. I'z got it.
So the abb vine needs to be restored?
the PMs are not working...
and the two vines he mentioned are crossed up
'Jazz & Blues for Allah vine' posts are under the
as well as this topic does not show up in the vineyard link
there are two others (from 2009 mistakenly) pinned there instead
I was looking for a 'Jazz & Blues for Allah' vine that I posted an update to recently but can't find it. I did take a look at an Allman Brothers vine that was I interested in and noticed that the postings it has are mostly for the 'Jazz & Blues for Allah' vine.... including my update.Here is the link for the ABB vine,
I also sent a few PMs out but got no response. I don't know if anyone got them or just haven't had a chance to respond.
