The intermission music can be purchased separately as Circles Around The Sun. 'Interludes For The Dead'.
So I combined all three disc 4's into one iTunes playlist.

The videos on 'Rainbows Are Real' were played during intermission.

Thanks for reply. I originally was thinking I'd store the fare the well shows under a folder called "Fare Thee Well Series" and have a folder for each date with the intermission melded into each show so 1st set be songs 1-9, casal be songs 10-15 and 2nd set be 16-25 (that sort of thing). Instead I created folders for each show and a folder called "Half Time Music", with each 1/2 time getting their own folder.

Stupid anal thinking about how to store and I KNOW I'm not the only one who suffers from this :-)

The intermissions at 7-3,4,5-15 were about 1 hour long. Not sure if all the songs were played.
Don't remember what was played before the shows.

FTW collection question

Hope I'm not too late to get an answer to a question, but I just got the set handed to me.

Are all the number "4" cd's the Neal Casal stuff? Was the entire number "4" played during intermission or is some before show and after show?

Fare Thee Well Box

It's odd... I keep reading that the dvd's don't play in the UK but mine do.
I'm playing them through a second-hand Crown CDV 1500 which isn't top of the range by any means and to my admittedly limited knowledge has never played an NTSC disc yet.
I did have a query when I first purchased the Dead Movie in that the advertising said it was USA play only but upon sticking it in the player it played without a problem.
I have also found that (so far) Phil's Warfield DVD and a couple of Mickey's interview things that have come out are also 'region free' even though they do not claim to be so on the sleeving.
I know this isn't helping those who can't get theirs to play, but there is definitely some confusion re the DVD versions of the available material and it's been going on for a few years.

3/5 box set

I agree with you 100%! I was at all five shows and I don't get how 3 out of 5 shows makes a complete box set. The first SC show was by far my favorite because I love the old stuff, the double rainbow, finally saying goodbye etc.. but Chicago had a lot more energy and Trey (not a Phish fan) really hit his stride the first night. For what it is worth the Chicago shows had bigger crowds and the place was pretty packed compared to CA. Either way, I want a complete set, not a 3/5 set :-)

Missing Bonus Blu-Ray Disc for Fare Thee Well Blu-Deluxe Box Set

I finally sat down to watch the bonus video disc only to discover that even though it was labelled as the bonus disc it actually contained the same content as July 5th, Blu-Ray 2 with no bonus content to be found.

What a bummer, I just e-mailed dead.net customer service and Rhino after reading through the posts here that others have had the same or similar problems.

Edit 6/28 to add; got a couple e-mails that a replacement bonus disc is in the mail. Fingers crossed that this one is indeed the bonus disc. Will update after it arrives and has been checked.

Edit 7/5 to add; the replacement bonus disc arrived today and a quick load in the blu-ray player indicates it does indeed have the correct content. Thanks for the quick replacement!

I think it's Derek

I think it's Derek Featherstone, same guy who mixed live and does Dead and Company.

Point being, it's the farthest thing from a professional mix. They sound like a collection of musicians as opposed to being presented like a real band.

I don't think Rhino has anything to do with the mixes, but could be wrong. I just don't see the band letting some industry stand-in do the mix, its something they would want to manage.

Over the last week I revisited the first and third shows. They sounded pretty damn good to me. I could think of a couple other things that might upset me about this box.. but the mix, played back on a good system and again on headphones, isn't one of them.

Jerry could be more prominent in the mix, but who am I to complain about that.

Finally threw the Blu-Ray

Finally threw the Blu-Ray on.

Now, while the mixes are better than the CD's. They still kind of suck.

Lesh is too out front, even though the alembic sounds sick.

There is still a general lack of keys.

During Scarlet, which was one of THE top highlights of all 5 nights, Trey is soloing, but is not prominent in the mix.

WTF Rhino...I keep coming back to the same thing. How can you put out such an inferior product?

This is not a GD quality release from a mixing stand point at all!!!

This should have been mixed by Jeffery Norman!

Santa Clara shows in 2D... DVD or Blu-ray

No hesitation to buy if these two shows were offered for sale in a package or individually.
I'm passing on the Chicago shows, all three were good, with the 7/3 show being my favorite, but they just don't excite me as these two Santa Clara shows do, and I wasn't there!
I saw the the Chicago shows - remotely at a theater in eastern PA, and the place was only about 25% full. Kinda sad, really.

Blu-Ray

I contacted Rhino about it also and they very quickly posted me replacement discs but they also won't play so it must be a region issue opposed to faulty discs.

Im still waiting to here back from dead.net about this, It looks like the only thing I can do now is buy a multi region blu ray player if thats even possible.

My point that Im trying to get across is that at the top of this page it clearly says the disc is All-Region which as it turns out is not exactly the true.

Had I known the discs were not playable in the uk I would not have made the purchase.

Its a shame because I really did want to see the shows!!

Dead.net sending bonus disc

I got an email the other day from dead.net saying the bonus bluray disc was on the way. This would be good news except I already got one from Dr Rhino 2 weeks ago. I asked Rhino for the disc in early February and it took them 3 weeks to send me one.

FTW Regions

DVD or Bluray?
BR might be all-region but not the DVD?
You can buy a region-free DVD player that will play everything. I bought a Philips for $30-40 a few years ago from Amazon. It plays NTSC and PAL DVDs and DVD-Rs that I burned.
Make sure the player says 'region free'.

I now have a Samsung Bluray player because I bought the FTW blurays. That player is also region free.

Rhino came through

I followed the suggestions posted below, emailed Rhino, about a week letter got an email back saying they had mailed my replacement disk, and it was in my mailbox the next time I checked. This, after waiting months for dead.net customer service [sic], who requested I mail the bad disk back, and then ... nothing.

Happy To Report

As Bertha's other one mentioned, I took up the advice and went directly to Rhino's website and contacted help via drrhino@rhino.com with my order number and was promptly replied to within 24 hours with the communication that my replacement was being sent out. Actually received just this morning, and the box set is now complete!

Just wanted others to know what they can do if they are still in fact waiting for dead.net customer service to help them......

Missing the final July 5th 2nd set

Mine is missing the July 5th second set (I got two copies of the bonus disc, one mis-labled). When I emailed to complain about this, I was just told they were looking into it. I've never been asked to send in the defective disc. I emailed again yesterday to find out what to do. The email was auto-acknowledged but I never received a response. For $180 + shipping, this is quite distressing.

Does anyone have two copies of the final second set and no bonus disc? Want to trade? You would think they could at least make an iso-image of the correct blu ray available for those of us missing the main content, so we could at the very least burn our own while we wait, and wait, and wait ...

I'm extremely frustrated by this. I understand production errors happen, but I'm not seeing any signs that they want to make this right.

Anyone thinking of buying the box set: You might want to hold off until you know they will fix the defective ones.

-------------

Regarding the sound quality: The 5.1 audio track is superb, even on my rather basic 5.1 system. The stereo is good, but I wonder if it is simply a down-mix. The resolution of the blu ray audio tracks is reported as 24 bit 96kHz. I haven't checked.

And the clock keeps ticking........

My duplicate disc was sent back to the Dead.net warehouses on 12/7/15, and yet, no one can reach out to let us know when the right disc can be sent out. Pathetic customer service.

I sit and look at this box set with one empty, glaring missing disc and think to myself, how could I have been so gullible as to purchase.

Nothing like taking advantage of fans and their money.

Still have not purchased

And most likely will be some time before I do, a lot of the reviews provided are very helpful. Seems like a real rush to get this out before Thanksgiving and some really noticeable mistakes. I guess the real rush was to collect money while the interest was peaking. When the set is drastically reduced in price I'll buy, but until then I am in no rush.

SQ, production mistakes, price, and not including Santa Clara are big detractors for me
