Grateful Dead

Welcome to the Sunshine Daydream Boutique.

On August 27, 1972, fresh off their now-legendary European tour, the Grateful Dead traveled to Veneta, OR and reunited with the Merry Pranksters for a common cause – to throw a benefit concert for the Kesey family’s Springfield Creamery. A stage was erected under the hot Oregon sun at the Olde Renaissance Fairgrounds, tickets were printed on the fronts of the Creamery’s yogurt labels, and the rest is history…

The back ordered status seems to be usual

I usually get back ordered status before Dave's picks ships and I own the subscription. It should come within a couple days. That seems normal to me when dealing with Rhino. Although seeing this status is confusing because the term back ordered is usually not good when you add the extra shipping an expect to receive priority. For Dave's 7, I had to call because many had posted they received shipping notice, a night or 2 before release. Never got notice, until it had arrived after calling a day after release & product came 3 days later. Similar to this release as well. I preordered and have not received shipping notice. So I would definitely call & get customer service to verify they are "processing" your order. They told me last time they were waiting for the warehouse to get the product even though it was released that day and this event had been staged for months. As for the limited edition I am all for getting the perks of that, and don't mind paying extra $$, but I would some more transparency from Dead.net. i will seek other avenues to get releases because it seems there is some other perks from buying from other sources.

Something I also heard recently was eye opening. There is talk of the song, Going down the road feeling bad from May 77' box show 5-13 being the same version as the Winterland 77 box show 6-8 version? Would like clarification on this from dead.net or anybody who owns both sets or has listened closely to know if this is true? If this is the same recording from both boxes and used to insert in May 77', I think a statement should have been made when May 77' was being released. Is this speculation or true?

Listening Now

Listening to the mp3 version in Amazon Cloud Player this morning while I get ready for work. It will probably be the weekend before I receive the hard copy, and can watch the movie. But, I'll take this for now. "Shake it. Shake it, Sugaree."

Boned?

Though Amazon and other retail purchases are getting an MP3 and/or a poster thrown their way, aren't they also getting a neutered version of the release? I.e. they aren't getting the documentary, the book, or the "Courtenay Pollock Tie-dye Slipcase" and they aren't getting an "Individually Numbered/Limited Edition." That's what it says at the top of the page here, anyway.

So although anyone who feels they need it ALL (not mocking anyone -- that description may include me...) will have to get two copies and then flog one off on eBay or make a gift of it to someone (after keeping the poster? some gift-giver!) -- you're still getting a bunch of exclusive bonus stuff ordering from dead.net so I don't see cause for much ire.

Backordered???!!!

Anyone else get the dreaded back ordered order status?

Funny, I ordered the day the release was made, paid extra for shipping, and now have to wait while others can just go to the local store and pick it up. Wish I knew this was not soley a limited release on 08/01 when I ordered. Would have thought they would have planned this out to make sure they had enough stock prior to taking orders on day one.

Would appreciate if others could tell me if they are having the same issue. I ordered the blu-ray version.

A lesson learned and noted for future reference.

If you ordered this show from Dead.net in any capacity it seems there is being a bone thrown to others. As I just read about the amazon mp3 download included with purchase plus free shipping in previous post. & now grateful dead Facebook page has posted if you buy vinyl or cd combo at local record store, the 22 inch tie die poster will be given as a free add-on. Funny, somebody even asked on Facebook how they can get the poster since they don't live near a record store. The page administrator responded in nearly record time, stating you can order it from dead.net in limited quantity, i believe only 500. But when numerous others asked only moments later if would be included in preorders from dead.net, to no surprise there was no response. Sad thing is most of the independent record store owners will get an overflow of posters and probably just end up putting these on sale at websites such as eBay. I am also really confused why I could not cancel my order? This was weeks ago and now I have heard about these other perks. I will definitely enjoy this release, but I do not enjoy the tactics of Rhino.

shipping

Hola -

Received shipping notice on Friday. Got to office. Large box on desk. Opened box. Inflated plastic filler. Contents: 2 Oregon Dead bumper stickers. Where was the LPs and DVD? Hmmmmm.

Rhino most be highly profitable. Assume LPs and DVD will be shipped in a trunk.

Wow, u think dead.net would throw in an extra bone for ordering

Through them. I usually order my GD products from them, but lately I am beginning to look at other avenues for getting GD merchandise. A few years ago they would thrown in a bonus disc with practically every release or include a t-shirt. I remember getting a t-shirt with Dicks picks 25 that had all the picks listed on the back plus a steal your face logo on left chest. With dicks pick 25 so far written around the stealie. & a great closing of winterland T with the ice blue rose, same as album cover art. Both made by Gildan activeware. definitely not a expenseive brand. Hopefully we get a few bones tossed our way or at least free shipping. The state I live in has sales tax, so I get hit with a double whammy. Shipping and tax. Rhino execs who call the shots, I am not asking for much, but help out the ones that help you, at least every now and then.

Done Deal

I'm a single father who gets no child support, and just had to shell out for braces. So after much personal anguish, I had to settle for the workingman's version. Nashville and Memphis are the closest record stores, and are both 110 miles away. Working 10 hours and driving on Tuesday is not an option, so I went through Amazon. Free shipping option means it will probably be Friday or Saturday before I receive it. It comes with AutoRip, so I can listen to it in my Cloud Player as soon as the mp3 version is released. I'm getting this one mainly for the DVD, so I can live without all the extras in the deluxe. That's what I keep telling myself anyway.
