Whole Shows? Compilations? All of the Above?

suggested by cosmicbadger, who says:

Once again the debate is raging about whole shows vs compilations.

In the latest Rhino era (since this revamped site was launched). I make the score so far this Total 9 Whole shows: RT2.2 (2/14/68); 3 From the Vault (2/19/71); Winterland Box Set (11/9/73/11/10/73;11/11/73); Cow Palace (12/31/76); To Terrapin (5/28/77); Road Trips Whole Show Download (11/5/79); Road Trips Whole Show Download (11/6/79) Total 7 Compilations: RT1.1 (Fall’79); RT1.2 (Oct 77); RT1.3 (Summer 71); RT1.4 (Oct 78); RT2.1 (Sept 90); RT2.3 (June 74); Rockin’ the Cradle (Sept 78) So its a more or less even balance now, with whole shows slightly favoured (mainly because of the 73 set)

So how about a referendum on future policy. Please post your preference from the following list

A. Whole shows only

B. Mostly whole shows with a few compilations

C. About even balance of compilations and whole shows

D. Mostly compilations with a few whole shows

E. Compilations only If we post our choices A,B,C,D or E in the subject box,then it will be easy to monitor the results. Then we can rant as much as we like in the comment box.

ME here: Absolutely no promises as to "future policy," the makers of which probably have no lack of ideas of their own. And it's certainly not a referendum in the sense of being binding on anyone. But that said, this could be interesting and we might all learn something, and who knows we might get that Anchorage box set,  so have at it!

Has anyone heard from mdecicco1?

I am still working on re-seeding this and part 1. If I remember right he hasn't been around? I could just go straight to 1958, I know he would be in still since he responded back to me about part 1. It would actually make it easier if I could just send parts 1 and 2 to 1958 in one package, which is what I am going to do unless mdecicco1 speaks up real soon.

update

mdecicco has not received this vine, so it looks like it is Dr. Z who is stalling this one. Let us know what is going on, Z

I don't think Dr Z has been around in quite awhile. This is not the first vine that has disappeared after being sent his way. I am thinking it may be time to start cleaning up some of these lists like what we did last year when vines started stalling and disappearing. I understand getting tired of doing the vine thing but I do not understand how you can keep receiving vines in the mail and then not send them along. Its like they are saying "Screw it I am done vining and now I am keeping any vine that hits my mailbox". That's the only explanation. Well I guess its not the ONLY explanation but still...

I've soured on Lovelights over the years, but I was bummed when this one cut out, even after 24+ minutes..

some outstanding playing throughout the show.....

Very Good show that suffers from poor sound quality. This is definitely one that needs an upgrade, perhaps an official release. Pigpen says a bad word during his Lovelight rap, advising the gentlemen in the audience to greet the ladies next to them and suggest that they fornicate. But not in those exact words.
