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…

It may have been posted, but damn.... I don't think I can wade through these posts.
Does anybody know if the vinyl is cut from the analog masters?
Thank you,

Sound quality...

...is amazing for 1972, and I don't own high end stereo equipment. Mr. Phil Lesh is on fire for this show! I've heard a less than stellar copy twice before, but nothing that sounds like this. On first pass, I Know You Rider and Dark Star really shine for me. Can't wait for the weekend, when I can listen straight through the discs and watch the DVD.

May 77 GDTRFB

It is indeed an oddity. This came up a few weeks ago in the May 1977 Box Set forum, and in the Internet Archive forum. As you will see in this interesting discussion over at the Internet Archive, the consensus seems to be that the use of the June GDTRFB to patch the May 77 Box was a good idea, BUT, not telling anyone they were doing it was, ummm, not such a good idea...

But hey, right now I'm just waiting on the postman - come on Veneta!

Never heard about this before, but I just listened to both and you are correct. Same version on both releases. Pretty weird. As for an explanation, your guess is as good as mine.

RE: Boned?

rrot,

I think the issue here is that Dead.net/Rhino are making you pay handsomely for the extras in the exclusive version. Amazon has the 3CD/DVD version for about $30, $20 less than the exclusive version here. That coupled with free shipping, guaranteed for release date, caused me to cancel my preorder and go with Amazon. I for one did not value the exclusives at the price difference and am thankful to TPTB that I had the choice. Getting the free "Auto Rip" was a nice bonus (I've already loaded up the album to my iPod), as are the free posters available to those purchasing at an independent store. The point is it would have been nice if a stream, poster or some other swag was made available to the fine folks ordering through Dead.net. I get that frustration.

Thanks for the info I appreciate it. Makes me feel better about the status thing. Will give it another day or two.

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.
