"The rock music group Grateful Dead is scheduled to perform at a 'potluck picnic' Sunday, sponsored by the Springfield Creamery." Eugene Register-Guard

A "rock picnic." The Field Trip. Kesey's Creamery. August 27, 1972. The Springfield Creamery Benefit. Call it what you will, the sun was beating down hard and bright on that fateful day in Veneta, Oregon when the Grateful Dead heeded Ken Kesey's call to help save the family Creamery. The 100-degree and rising temperatures did not deter the band who were still riding high from their adventures across the pond. It did not discourage filmmakers John Norris, Phil DeGuere, and Sam Field who gained entry into the Dead's tight-knit world with their promise to capture the culture and integrity of the scene. And it certainly didn't inhibit the estimated 20,000 Dead Heads who could not believe their, well, pot...luck.

In fact, this blistering day turned out to be a near-perfect little piece of the Grateful Dead experience and it is with great pleasure, that 41 years later we can present Sunshine Daydream to you the way it was meant to be heard. Cut from the flawlessly preserved 16-track master, this 180-gram LP set of the "most requested" and "most revered" Dead show of all time promises to transport you back to the epic scene with definitive versions of the band's most beloved songs like "Bertha," "China>Rider," "Playing In The Band,""Greatest Story Ever Told,""Dark Star," and "Sing Me Back Home." Limited to just 5,000 copies, you can pre-order it now.

another view on vinyl release

I'm a vinyl fanatic. I have all my 1st issues of the Dead and Zappa. That said these reissues or in the case of Europe '72 vol 2 etc are great. I just got this one a couple of days ago and have gone through it twice. It is flawless. The one issue that I think is valid is they could have put a copy of the movie in for the price. The cost is minimal. Dylan puts a cd copy in every new lp. That said the complaints about the cost are out of line. $20 a disc is very reasonable. You won't find a better price for hi grade vinyl anywhere. MFSL is $30 a disc and others are even higher And take a look at Neil Young's prices.Unlike CD/DVD who by their nature dropped in price by 80% in the last 10 years Vinyl by it's main ingredient (oil) and the precision of production has stayed remarkable stable. We definitely got a fair price

Complaints about the vinyl version

I saw the Sunshine Daydream movie in theatres and to say it was an experience I will never forget is an understatement. I immediately pre-ordered the CD+DVD set from Dead.net. I've since received that and being that I am a music lover who buys 95% of my music on vinyl it was a unique thing for me to drop so much money on a CD set. I will say the CD+DVD set is one of the nicest looking CDs I have and one I would show off to any of my vinyl loving buddies. Not to mention it sounds incredible and the book is a huge plus.

So circle back to me then buying Sunshine Daydream again on vinyl - since I really need to round out all my Dead MoFi LPs and Europe 72 3xLP, Europe 72 Vol.2 4xLP - and I will say I am extremely disappointed with the corners cut on this vinyl release.
Firstly the fact that it does NOT include the DVD is pretty insulting. The set is $80! The DVD could have been slipped into the jacket - I don't care if it had any artwork, just pop the DVD disc in there.

The jacket for this release is fantastic - the Stoughton old-style tip-on gatefold with the additional jackets pasted inside. -It looks nice. But I will say I am very disappointed that this release was not pressed at RTI. I'm spinning LP1 now and it sounds good, but it's warped to hell. The release was shrink wrapped which caused ringwear out of the box and also probably contributed to the warping. This pressing does not compare to my Dead MoFi titles or Europe 72 LPs...

I'd really love to hear from other people on here who have the vinyl - your thoughts on pressing quality and if you've had any issues with warping.

I'll start over by saying that this release is a landmark for me and that is why I bought it TWICE! But I will say the vinyl fans got the short end of the stick here. The CD+DVD box is really unreal. The 4xLP really doesn't even compare and it doesn't even have the DVD which again I'll say was a bummer.

Alright enough rambling!

The music/ vinyl itself

I hear, and understand, the frustration regarding the handling/ pricing etc. of this release.

I am curious, though, regarding the product itself. I have been on the fence about purchasing since the LP set was announced. As an native Oregonian and a (albeit picky) Deadhead this concert has a certain mythical appeal to me, but does this release (on vinyl) represent a vast improvement over the Veneta tape (and then CDR) I have known for so many years? Also, is anyone finding it too processed sounding? They have certainly put the tapes through a number of steps, and my fear is that something may have been lost (or something undesirable added) in the process. For example, was the reverb I am hearing on the sound samples added during mastering, or was it naturally occurring (I do not perceive it as being that pronounced in the versions I am familiar with)?

In short, any information regarding sound quality would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Numbered - How ?

The vinyl set is not a dead.net exclusive. The same version is available from Amazon and others. It seems absurd to think that those sold from dead.net would be numbered and those from Amazon etc. not. How many would they number? What would be the point? I really don't know whether it ever stated on here that the dead.net copies would be numbered, but certainly plenty of punters thought so and seemingly at least one person was assured by the infamous customer service that this would be the case. Only very recently - after people started receiving their sets - was it clarified that it is simply a limited edition of 5000, not numbered, embossed, blessed etc. More clarity from day one would have been nice, but nothing here is ever quite as simple and obvious as it should be.

Reij029 - Maybe you had info

Reij029 -
Maybe you had info the rest of us didn't about the numbered vinyl. What I do know is that I called and asked why the vinyl was more expensive on dead.net than on Amazon in August, the day this item was put up for sale. I was specifically told that vinyl ordered from dead.net would be individually numbered and would be gold embossed. Called back a week before release date when the Amazon price dropped dramatically and was told a second time by operators on dead.net that the item was numbered and embossed. I was lied to twice.
I spend about 400 bucks or more a month on records, so I buy enough to know that things aren't always perfect. However, for the price they are charging, the items should have been shipped in a more reliable manner, especially since we were paying 20 bucks more for the same item. That alone should guarantee perfect condition. I also agree with your comments about hitting a brick and mortar store to buy vinyl, but some of us live two hours away from the nearest record store and can't take chances on missing out on limited vinyl releases by our favorite band.
Thanks for sharing your musings with us, but you don't know what we were told when ordering. The vinyl heads have every right to be irritated.
Nice that you guys noticed that they changed the item description for the vinyl - that and their silence speaks for itself.

NUMBERS & mail ordering Vinyl

I posted back on August 6th that I was bummed that these LPs would not be individually numbered & therefore not worth buying for me from dead.net (knowing that there are probably plenty available elsewhere or maybe not really limited to only 5000). Dead net never stated that they would be individually numbered, just limited. It really is almost always better to buy vinyl in a physical store cause plenty of copies have dings or bends or are just manufactured not evenly. Choose the best one in person if you can. I mail ordered the first dick's picks and the cover has a weird ripple to it. Also ordered 2 copies of King Crimson's Wake of Poseidon but the cover was damaged and then a rip in the sleeve. Returned them both but got lucky with a perfect 200 gram In the Court of the Crimson King LP. Vinyl sounds incredible but is just very tough to order sight unseen.

So, we're all screwed? Awesome!

I paid for a numbered vinyl set. We all paid for a numbered vinyl set. A very small run of the vinyl set.

What does Dead.net do when it's discovered they didn't number these? They get shady.

They stop answering emails and they take down the individually numbered lightning bolt in the description.

Of course, there are always two ways to deal with your mistakes. You take responsibility and say 'we screwed up' or you try to walk away from taking any responsibility. Did you really just rip off 5000 people without even so much as an explanation or compensation? You're literally made of money and resources. Do the right thing.

Got my vinyl copy in the mail

Got my vinyl copy in the mail today. Aside from being badly dinged up on two of the corners, it was most likely shipped via Amazon using their "frustration free" vinyl mailers. My copy also did not have any sort of individual numbering as promised by Dead.net back when this thing was announced. So, to make a long story short, I was just screwed out of $20 extra for the privilege of ordering from Dead.net instead of ordering the same thing from Amazon or supporting my local record shop. Thanks guys.

I don't see difference from Vinyl edition, between the vendors,

Also they are not numbered, which is odd as well. I bought my copy from local record store and received tie die poster plus only paid $75. Can't wait for what they will release for Record Store Day in November. Kind of bummed I missed out on the Dark Star Vinyl from Paris Europe 72'. Although I did get the Winterland May 71'.

Kind of bummed about the way that they handled the vinyl release on this one. I ordered one from Dead.net the day they announced it, then noticed a few weeks later that Amazon had it listed for much cheaper. Called to see about canceling my order, and the operator promised the Dead.net version would be different than the Amazon version. That doesn't appear to be the case.
Also, if the two versions are different, why were they shipped from the same location in Lexington, KY? Why did people who ordered a copy from Amazon get theirs on release day and I'm having to wait a week after release date to get mine? Rhino and Dead.net need to do a better job with this if they want us to keep ordering from them!

Amazon cost vs. dead store??? Sunshine 4 lp set cheaper at Amazo

I find it annoying that one can purchase the Sunshine Vinyl 4 lp set cheaper from Amazon than the dead's own store. Free shipping from Amazon and a ten dollar bill cheaper. Hmmmmmm.

I guess it pays to "shop around."

Hey Simonrob

Thanks Simonrob but I cannot afford it at this time. Several weeks ago I spent over 100+ for the Veneta Ore 1972 Vinyl, Blue Ray and CD package, a tshirt, canvas bag, coffee maker (just kiddin : ) 80 fukcin dollars for the Veneta Vinyl!! Its outrageous!! How did they calculate that number? I do not understand why it is so expensive?! But I bought it!! sucker! LOL.

I don't think I've paid anymore than $25 for any newly printed vinyl. $50-60 for 4 LPs seems more reasonable to me than $80! A few years ago, I paid about $20 fo the classic Smashing Pumpkins album "Siamese Dream" 2 LP gatefold with orange vinyl at Amoeba Records in San Francisco.

Ah Jackstrawberry, prepare to lose yourself for many hours... the Internet Archive is a great treasure (not just for Dead stuff - I use it for my history classes too). It has literally several thousand Dead shows, usually multiple versions of each (various AUD versions, SBD, matrix, you name it). Reviews, forum discussions...

Anyway, here is a link to 9/19/70 in the Internet Archive - go straight to the Dark Star, put on headphones, and prepare to melt. http://archive.org/details/gd70-09-19.sbd.kaplan.5217.sbeok.shnf

Hey John B

THanks for the info. I'm not interested in anything that has that "Europe 72" sound quality. Its sounds so sterile and is a poor representation of the GD live sound. So, you're words are encouraging about Europe 72, Vol 2. Is the sound quality as good as the Deads other recent Dave's Picks or special releases from that time? Was that released on Vinyl and no longer available at the Dead Store?

Thanks claney for all the Dark Star info

Thanks for all the Dark Star info claney. I appreciates it!! I have and love Dick's Picks 2 (October 71) Dark Star, DP36 (Sep 72 Dark Star. I do not have the Austin, 11/15/71 Dark Star. Will have to get it !! lol. My favorite Dark Star in my collection is DP 28 2/26 and 2/28/73 Lincoln Neb and Salt Lake City. CD 2 is awesome: Greatest Story, Dark Star >>Eyes o World>>Mississippi Half, Me and My Uncle, NFA>> Goin Down the Road>>>NFA. I've worn that CD out. Excellent versions of Eyes and Mississippi 1/2. The Dark Star on "Ladies and Gentleman..." on Arista records is another one of my favorites. its from April 1971 at Filmore East. 4 CD set from several night. The recording is excellent. Comparable to the sound quality of GD special releases and vault series... and Tom Constanten is guest and plays the organ on DS !! I love his sound and embellishments. A real treat!! btw, what is the Internet Archive you are talking about?! I need to check it out!

When do you think the vinyl will be gone?

Any educated guesses on when the vinyl will sell out? I already ordered the Blu Ray, but I really can't afford to spring for the vinyl until my new job's first pay check at the beginning of September. What do you guys think my chances are? Of course, worst case scenario I'd still have the Blu Ray and CD's which is pretty damn sweet in its own right.

JStrawberry - Dark Stars

Hey Jack - I'm in the minority here, but Europe 72 Dark Stars don't do it for me. I have several, including the famed Rotterdam 5/11 show, and those stars all feel cluttered and almost nightmarish to me, with Keith relentlessly riding his echo pedal and the keys up and down, up and down, like a fever dream I can't wake up from.... Which is odd, because I love Stars from 71 and from Fall 72

If you don't have them yet, be sure to track down Dick's Picks 2 (October 71), DP11 (Sep 72 - a jazzy fellow, with nods to the upcoming 73 sound), DP36 (Sep 72 and commonly cited as a favorite Dark Star by many, including a mad bluegrass meltdown towards the end), and I really love the one on the Austin, 11/15/71 Road Trips (I can never remember the numbers of the Road Trips the way I do with DP and DaP series...). Fall 72 Stars seem to have more "air" - more room to breathe, than their Europe 72 counterparts.

There are many other great officially released Dark Stars, but these are the ones closest in time to Europe 72. (Though, another must-hear DS from a bit earlier, 9/19/70 might be my favorite - you can find it in the Internet Archive)

Oh, and I almost forgot - we're finally getting the Veneta Dark Star in official release, yeay!

Going to get it

I commented earlier that it sucks the vinyl won't include either the book or the DVD. I imagine the production costs on those two things are not huge and it wouldn't be much of a burden to include them with the vinyl.

I have the Europe '72 Vol. 2 on CD and vinyl. The LP is FAR superior in sound quality. The record store releases of the last year - Filmore West and the Europe '72 Dark Star are just incredible sounding so, it's safe to assume this will sound great.

As far as price goes, if you buy any current 180 gram audiophile vinyl release, you'll pay $20 to $25, often more, so, at $80 for 4 disks, it's not out of hand. Perhaps, seeing the vinyl next to the cd/dvd and blu ray/cd release, it does seem much more expensive. But, the production cost for vinyl is higher. I think I paid somewhere around $65 - $70 for the 4 LP Europe '72 Vol. 2. It was worth it alone just for the Sing Me Back Home!

Vinyl limitations

I understand the "Thou shalt not interrupt Dark Star" quote.But I always thought it was a quote from Benjamin Franklin :). You know Ben would have been following the Dead if he was around :)

Years ago, I had tapes with several interrupted Dark Stars, among many other songs in the middle of Jerry solos. ugh!
One of the commenters addressed the split Dark Star. Dark Star is about 30 min and an LP can only hold about 20+ minutes per side. I'm hoping that they cut the Dark Star at the best point possible. As I previously mentioned, the Dicks Picks are from 2 track masters. This Veneta show was mixed from a 16-track tape. So I have high hopes for the Vinyl. It sounded awesome in the theater last week! I don't have any Dead on vinyl that sounds as good as any of my best tapes and CDs. So, I'm hopin finally I have a great sounding Dead show on Vinyl. I'm in a Vinyl Night group. We meet every couple months and I'm looking forward to playing this LP for everybody at the next gathering. But I agree, 80 dollars for a 4 LP package is crazy!! but I had to have this concert!! I guess they count on a lot of suckers like me to charge astronomic prices for vinyl. This may be my first and last time buying incredibly, ridiculously, expensive vinyl from Dead Net.

I saw the concert in the theatre and it sounded awesome. I had the bootleg cassette and movie for years. They really did a great job with the sound, movie, and documentary. The documentary about the movie was shown first and really made the movie more enjoyable than I had experienced watching he bootleg videotape. As I understand, the sound was recorded on 16 track. I know that the Dicks Picks come from the 2-tracks but not sure about Dave's Picks. So, I'm expecting a superior listening experience compared to my favorite 72 concert in my collection, Dick Picks 36, Philly SPectrum 9/21/72, about a month after the Veneta Oregon concert. I avoided 1972 for years because all I had from that year was Europe 72, which I don't care for...The Veneta show was a very special concert for the Grateful Dead and their family, including the merry pranksters. It was a reunion. Based on what I read from one of the GD crew people, the whole Grateful Dead gang was on LSD except for a few people. It appears most of the crowd was on acid too. LOL.

Anyway, I'm looking forward to receiving both the vinyl and CD DVD set. I also bought the cool brown tshirt. : ) After, I came home from the movie I purchased everything. LOL

I will be interested in what we all have to say after we listen to our goodies.

vinyl every time!

Where to begin - vinyl is a far superior medium for listening to music. A mid-priced modern record deck with a good cartridge properly set up will easily outperform CD players costing over $1,000. The depth and realism of good vinyl is superb and no compression or artificial loudening - the absolute bane of modern-day recordings! And the feel of a proper physical property rather than a digital throwaway. Last but far from least the artwork which is very limiting on CDs. There are downsides of course; they need to be cared for properly and are more vulnerable to damage and there is a limit of about 25 mins per side. Vinyl all the way :-)

Limited

I'd pay 80$ for the show on vinyl alone. If you are buying something from the Grateful Dead because of its limited availability and the exclusivity you will have for owning said item then it seems that you are missing the point of this release. Not to mention it was pressed from the analog tapes which means, at least to my hear, a better sound for listening than CD. And as far as not splitting Dark Star, the limitations of an LP inhibits this and having to flip a record in exchange for a superior listening experience is a nuisance I'll deal with.

why get this on vinyl??? some songs are out of sequence (not the end of the world), BUT Dark Star is spread out over two sides. NOT what I would want.

tip of the hat to the vinyl folks, but this would not be acceptable to me.

and no video.

CDs and DVD suit me fine.

NOT Individually Numbered, is this worth buying?

You'd think that if you lay down the 80 bucks plus another 10 or so for shipping and taxes you'd at least get an individual number to show that this is a unique limited edition, somewhat valuable copy. But apparently that's not the case, so even though they claim it's limited you really never know. Also, I really love vinyl but I can't take my turntable with me on the go. How can you not throw in a download? I am very much on the fence with this purchase. I did buy the November RSD Winterland LP release which I love, beautiful artwork as well. The only other artist that charges these high prices for vinyl is Neil Young & I always end up just getting the CD version cause I cannot quite justify paying $75 for a new crazy horse LP release. What should I do here?

Yes on the DVD

For the price of the vinyls, cd's thrown in to the mix would be helpful. The film should come with this just as with the other formats too, no question. Usually when I pick up the vinyl pressing of something I like to have a digital copy as well but it gets pricey. I've purchased vinyl records before (like from Wilco) where a cd copy is included and I think it should always be like that.

Does seem like it would have been nice to include the DVD with the vinyl, especially since the 40 page book isn't included.

Why no DVD with this?

The other packages include audio of the show plus the movie. Why not for the LP package also? I'd pay $100 for the records PLUS a DVD in a simple slipcover. Just seems like the right logical thing to do. Don't want to get gypped on the movie because LP is my preferred audio format. Just sayin'...
