    Just like the singular Cornell, just like the one later called Sunshine Daydream, just like hallowed Hampton, DeKalb stands legend on its own as one of the most sensational performances the Grateful Dead ever did do. Early tape-trading circles earmarked the show as upper-echelon and when you have a listen, we're sure you'll be inclined to agree. The original reel-to-reel recordings have been shined and polished to perfection, showcasing mighty fine fret work, sparkling keys, and unparalleled harmonies. In fact, we can hardly pick favorites - from start to finish, there's just too much good stuff!

    Limited to 22,000 numbered copies, DAVE’S PICKS VOLUME 33: EVANS FIELD HOUSE, N. ILLINOIS UNIVERSITY, DEKALB, IL 10/29/77 has been mastered to HDCD specs by Jeffrey Norman.

    *RE/ Jerry Garcia Guitar styles

    ... I used to think Jerry played his electric guitar like an Acoustic guitar, and sometimes Vice versa! I am a DeadHead & BrainDead! 😅💀🌹

    Late 77 - 78

    DP33 -- great playing but to me late 77 is the beginning of Keith becoming irrelevant to the sound. The problem being that the Yamaha electric grand he started to use from Autumn 77 simply doesn't cut it as far as I'm concerned. Weedy sound -- muddles too much with the rhythm guitar, no real dynamics.

    It just annoys me how awful it sounds - ps I am a pianist :)

    Bonus Disc

    I was expecting to receive this, too, since it is in the Track Listing with no caveat -- which I now discover they only included on the Product Description tab -- not exactly fair and righteous! You know, it pays to act fast if you want one of these, so once I checked the Track Listing, I just went ahead and placed my order based on that. And that bonus disc is a deal breaker for me this time around. But rather than just (try to) return it, since it's sold out, I'll be looking for someone who might want to buy it directly from me. I don't even know if there's a direct contact method in here, but if anyone is interested in buying the basic 3-disc set, see if you can get in touch with me and we'll work something out. Thanks for listening!

    Still waiting for #33...

    Exchanged a few emails with customer service. Last one was 2 months ago and I was assured that I would be updated with any new information. Is no news good news?? On the plus side, I got #34 last week and it's better than I hoped it would be!

    Not a new issue

    I wouldn't be hard on yourself. They've been having delivery problems for past 2 years or so. I've started getting the subscription delivered to me overseas, and then the Picks I really can't live without - I'll have one shipped direct to my sister in the USA. Easy to blame covid - but reality is these problems been going on a while now (I still never got my Vol. 29). When you can eventually get Rhino to respond properly - they do a good job at trying to make amends.. but it's ridiculous they've allowed this to go on so long.

    MaryE....can you help me? …

    MaryE....can you help me? I ordered DaPick subscription. I moved in January and did not update my address until Feb 3rd. I emailed Dead customer service the first week of February 2020 and updated my current mailing address. Customer service replied, stating a copy would be delivered to me in four to six weeks. I never received Da 33. I emailed Customer service again about a week ago. They said, due to Covid-19 they are unable to ship. Do you know when I might be receiving my copy? I totally understand that things are slow due to Mother Earth needing to heal while we relax at home/work from home....hope you are well, safe, healthy, and peaceful. Stay bright!

Glad to see a new Dave’s Picks 33 is going to be
sent out soon. With some luck I just might get this one in a reasonable amount of time . Why would one say that considering that the company that sends them out takes great care to see that us ,or me , the customer is treated right and mistakes are kept to a minimum. Folks this is a joke of course
I still haven’t received Dave’s Picks 32 which was released in November. Have I called customer service .....yes......have I called the shipping plant ......yes.......has anything happened......NO......BTW .......Dave’s Picks 31 took over 2 months to get to me .......do I live in some foreign country ......NO.........I live in Brooklyn...........The reason was the package was addressed without my apartment number and returned to them whom say “it takes 6-8 weeks to rectify “ This hasn’t happened once but 2 times in a row ..........what is the definition of insanity..........trying the same the exact same way and expecting different results.......The real insanity is that no one cares at customer service in this company. It’s almost criminal to be treated this way . Over a simple thing as addressing a package correctly. Yes it’s strange but true and I have a subscription. So folks enjoy Dave’s Picks 33 ........I might receive 32 by maybe July and 33 by next Christmas

Long time fan, but first time ordering from this site. How long does it take before these pre-orders actually ship to us, please? Thanks in advance!

Hey Frobodine, love that avatar. Looks like conekid was correct as they have moved the released on date up to January 24, so in theory some will start receiving them on Friday. Last year mine always came at least five days after the release date. Let's hope that changes this year.
Another classic seaside chat. Only 9 minutes, shortest I can remember and yes, was that women skinny dipping? I couldn't tell.
Hidden tracks. That would be awesome. Remember Dick's 13 with that hidden Scarlet Fire from 1979, was that 35 minutes? Dicks 29, hidden tracks from the fall 1977.
That would be sweet!

While your sitting at home counting your profits from Picks 33 .......some of us HAVE YET TO RECEIVE PICKS 32 .........I know my credit card gets changed with the quickness so why does the Dead Store customer service and the factory move at a snails 🐌 pace or move at all ?
I dare you to do a SEASIDE CHAT about this ?
I seriously doubt you actually care or actually realize this might be happening
Dead Store is worse than Apple Store for customer service
You should be ashamed
The sad part is we’ll still by the releases cause the product is what keeps us coming back
Once again put out a Seaside Chat about the SHOTTY business practice....... I dare you

Also waiting on my subscription copy of 32. Contacted the proper authorities.

I get soccer jerseys shipped on a regular basis from Ukraine, Russia, Malaysia, Chile, and other questionable regions...never had any issue, but the GOGD can't get me a small packet from Tennessee to Illinois.

On an actual note about the show, it rocks! Love the 2nd set.

How about the 4 missing songs from Toronto, Canada 11/2/77 (the first 4 songs from the 2nd Set)? These are:

1. Samson And Delilah
2. Ship Of Fools
3. Good Lovin'
4. Sunrise (this was released with 30 Days Of Dead 2015, but does anyone really care about this song?)

The rest of the show was released in 2 parts as bonus material with DP34 & DaP12. As a completist I can't resist asking for the remainder!

Strange dude, but funny, another one of my heroes gone. RIP Terry.
This release is a good one, had it for years on a bootleg CD that sounds pretty darn good, but these will be from the reel to reel, the actual reel to reel of the show, this is going to sound awesome, can't wait for this one to hear it again, only different, and better.
To all who have been ripped off, Man, I feel for you all and hope that this debacle gets rectified. I do wish that, as another head stated, Dave would address this issue, it is criminal that these fine folks have not received their merchandise. Has any one tried to get the charge taken off their credit card bill? I went this way a couple of times in the past and I did not have to pay for the product and did not have to send it back if it was defective. Don't know if that's possible since they charge up front for all 4 releases, but it's worth a try. I know Discover will go out of their way to make sure that you are happy. Too bad that's not the case with this company. Angry Jack Straw, ticket prices are too high. ;)

Somebody's pissed there's no bonus tracks.

If they were expected to be on there they wouldn't be bonus would they?

Some people will never be happy.

...PM'd you.

In other news, can't wait for this release. Sure, some disc 2 filler would be great, let's see what we get. It will be a fine show regardless.

In other other news, I finally relistened to the Closing of Winterland set (12/31/78), which some of you fine folks were talking about on New Year's Eve. Haven't listened in quite some time. Holy smoke, what a great show. That 3rd disc combo of drums (with a harmonica squawking in the background) into a smoking Not Fade Away is just killer. Sure made my commute to & from work fly by today :-)

I think the eBayers are buying less now that there are so many available. They must be having a more difficult time making a profit now that there are so many to compete with on eBay. There are also a lot of 1977 releases out there. It's not like 1973 where there was a ton of improvisation going on so a lot of the shows sound the same in 77. Just my 2 cents. And I just realized MacArthur Court 78 was released on this day.

Seems to be a positive development for t all. This will sell out. Now how long? Complaints should decrease. I can't remember the last time we saw one of these picks go into day two.
Hard to believe they started in 2012 with 12,000.
Does anyone know how many they used to produce for Dick's picks?

These are great times.

If you can trust this information, I have 2 subscriptions to Dave's Picks for the year. Problem is, I meant to have 1. My attempts to get this fixed by support were unmet. If by chance you don't get your Dave's Picks subscription, I can sell you my extra copy at cost.

Maybe another reason they are not sold out yet because word has been filtering around of all the trouble people had or are having actually getting their orders. I don’t know how widespread the issues are but on IG and on YT (for the recent vid at least) you’ll find people complaining.
Not having piece of mind that orders will be shipped is a big hassle and can easily make some with limited funds not even wanna mess with it.
It’s a shame, really.

Just listening to the listening party -- I have to say that when Keith switched to using the Yamaha electric grand in the Fall of 77, to me anyway, the overall richness of the band sound lost something that an integral part of their sound up to that point. It just doesn't add another dimension to the sound the way a real grand piano did, and keith never sounds as inspired on it.

I'm sure it's a factor. I cannot believe they don't have a customer service function that works.. they need to fix this and the warehouse issue in 2020. These functions might cost money.. but they are not insurmountable and Rhino has other product lines besides the Grateful Dead to service and protect.

How does the story go? Don't kill the goose that lays the golden egg?

The other half is they are and have been dancing around the edge of demand. From 20k to 22k makes a big difference and they have released a lot of shows to this point.. How long has it been since you guys have listened to Dicks Picks #1?

Still, this is a top shelf 1977 show and it will be in high demand. I am surprised it has not sold out yet.

There is just no way that DISC-2 only has 3 songs on it...and one of them is good lovin….and another one is FOTD?!?!?!

There has got to be some filler hidden on that disc, but looking at the time of play for the last song(Friend), it's not like there is a total of 42-43 minutes for that track like say Dick's Picks #13 with the hidden Scarlet>Fire....with all the chatter about not selling out, I've got to guess that DISC-2 is contributing to that. This certainly is far & away the longest any of the Dave picks has remained not sold out for.

Couple things, still amazed Pacific Northwest box is still available, given that a lot of people like that time period. It was 15,000 copies at about $190... I wonder what percentage of subscribers buy the yearly box release? Giants Stadium box was 10,000 copies i believe and around $150.. Get shown the light box, was the last box that put us all in the panic mode of stop everything or I won't get this... Also I know there has been discussion on here that Dead & Company were adding to demand, but is that audience more into streaming instead of looking at the "Album cover"??? The world will never know. be good everyone bob t

I agree RV3 - what a waste.

As most of us know, the show itself is great, but it is such a shame that they would release something with 3 "1st set-type" songs on an entire disc - it's under 25 minutes! Dave's 7 was like that too, but at least that one had a Scarlet>Fire on it. (To this day, that remains one of my least favorite of the series, and that scant disc 2 is totally a factor.) It's not like there is a shortage of material they could use to fill out that time. I wonder if Dave and Co. have decided to hold everything they deem to be releasable back as possible future releases. I have not yet had a chance to watch the seaside chat - does Dave mention anything about this?

Here's hoping there is something hidden there, but I am not going to hold my breath.

Peace
