Dave's Picks 2018 Subscription


Welcome to the 7th year of the Dave's Picks series, as we head into 2018 more excited than ever about where this series is, and where it's going. A heartfelt thank you to everyone who has supported the series since its inception in 2012; and to those who are new to it, we welcome you. There's plenty of room on the bus. The anticipation we feel every time we select, and later announce, each and every Pick is equal, or even greater, than this guy's excitement at seeing a train. As we head into and past our 25th release in the series, we feel a great sense of forward momentum, and we aim to keep that going in the coming years. How do we top a release like the upcoming Vol. 25, which as you've likely heard is the classic, much-requested, spectacular 11/6/77 Binghamton, NY show? With the show we're thinking about for Vol. 26, that's how! Really, we aim to equal, or top, every release by heading to great performances that you or may not have previously heard, but never in the quality Jeffrey Norman is able to produce. We've got our eyes and ears on several shows for possible upcoming Dave's Picks releases that are going to make 2018 the best year yet in the series, and that's how we honestly feel. Thanks again for subscribing. We keep doing what we do because you keep digging it. Your support and feedback is what keeps making us scream like we've just seen the train of our dreams...

October 2017

Because the demand for these limited, numbered releases is so high, we've decided to bump the 2018 Dave's Picks production run to 18,000 of each of the four releases. While this means there will be more to go around, the best advice we have to give is... subscribe. When these releases go up for sale a la carte, they sell out within hours. Hours. No hyperbole here. The only way to avoid disappointment and be guaranteed all four Dave's Picks in 2018 is to subscribe.

In addition to the four CD releases in 2018, totaling 12 CDs, you’ll also get the subscription-exclusive bonus disc, which has proven to be one of the most highly sought after collectables we’ve ever released and free domestic shipping. Subscriber bonus discs will not be released outside of this offer. Early bird subscribers can nab a sub at $99.98 (regular pricing will be $115.92).

Product Details

DAVE’S PICKS 2018 SUBSCRIPTION BENEFITS

• Four Limited Edition, Numbered Releases
• Highly Collectible Bonus Disc
• Free Domestic Shipping
• Delivered Throughout The Year
• Early Bird Pricing - $99.98
• A savings of over $25.00 over purchasing a la carte

Aside...(thinking of our friend RV3)

If you’re not on Instagram and/or don’t follow Mickey, he posted a sweet shot of Telluride with a little guess which town/show game:

Dig that West LA ...

This one is just for you, RV3. Enjoy!

JUST CASUALLY FREAKING OUT THAT AFTER ALL THESE YEARS I'LL GET SHUT OUT. Sorry for the all caps, just nervous.

EDIT: I got through. Have had so many problems with this site over time. Registered finally this summer, though I've ordered everything for a few years. Why not make this NOT LIMITED so we can all enjoy.

Not working for me either

Went to pay and then got "Service Temporarily Unavailable." It also says there's nothing in my cart.

You'd think at this stage of the game they would have gotten it more together.

Goodbye Dead.net! Every damn time the same thing! If you assholes needed this website to work in order to live, you would DIE!!!!!! Overtime. every new product. Overwhelmed by shit.
This Daves Picks ordered via last years script is the end for me.
Too damn bad they can't get it together. Best wishes to all, hope good things come to you.

Can't get past the processing wait....Truly believe that repeat, DEADicated subscribers should get a hassle free experience. Also, didn't get the email until 7:08 pm EDT. No chance to do it earlier if you're not logged in all the time.

Would really like this subscription

Can't complete my order and don't want to miss out. Always buy this every year. Would be very disappointed in Dead.Net. I bet the bots are on gobbling up subscriptions so they can sell discs at $500 a piece. A damn shame. That's why us humans can't get through. 1 subscription per person please.

You are going crazy.

Or just misread. #24 is Berkeley August '72. Shipping now (and sold out).

There were no (formal) concerts in Berkeley in December '72.

#25 is 11/6/77, just announced.

Ordered

Ordered. Got email confirmation 23 minutes later.

Definitely log in first, then order.

Good luck.

Subscribe. Right now, these around $25 a piece, about $7.70 a disk.

Also recommend getting Bear's recording of Doc and Merle Watson at the Boarding House, five CDs, just fabulous. Two versions of "Alberta" to die for.

Dave’s 25

Am I going crazy? I could swear was going to be a show from Berkeley December 1972. But here in the ad for the Dave’s 2018subscription it says 11/6/77 Binghamton. Maybe that’s #26?

Total Fail

This debacle, again?

I got as far as to enter my credit card and pay.

Then kicked back out to billing. Now can't
even get delivery method to load.

Looks like another long night on the computer.

Kind of like being in a "Live Nation Waiting Room."

I'm calling bullshit...

In the past

I have thanked Dave the GD Rhino etc for the hard work. Especially when some who aren't happy with choice or bad disc or design are trashing them. That said you'd think after this many years they still haven't figured out how to make it work the 1st or at least the 10th time a customer tries. Oh well been here many times before I think I'll wait a bit. No need to stress out

Folks having trouble ordering

We're trying to troubleshoot this: please PM me with platform, browser information, etc. Also see if the problem persists on another machine/browser. Thanks so much!

plenty of room crap

"...we welcome you. There's plenty of room on the bus." Thats BS. Extremely limited releases and termed "plenty" thats just crazy. Millions of Deadheads fighting over 18,000 copies of a Dave's Pick's. If theres plenty of room on the bus to get 1 of these releases hows come I have not been able to get 1/one single Dave's Pick's release.? ALWAYS all sold out at the drop of the hat. I HATE LIMITED Editions of anything for this reason.!!
