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!
