    Fillmore West 02/28/69 on Vinyl?

    Yesterday I saw an advert for a vinyl box set being issued imminently of the 28th Feb '69 Fillmore West gig. Is this official? It certainly appears so - but there is no mention here on Dead.net

    Long Strange Trip Blu-Ray bonus disc 2 defective

    Long Strange Trip Blu-Ray bonus disc 2 from Dead.Net that I received today (11-19-18) is not recognized by my Blu-Ray player. Disc 1 with the entire documentary plays fine, as do all my other Blu-ray discs. Cleaning player and disc did not help. Is it just me or are others having the same problem?

    rockit: '80 Warfield/RCMH

    I believe many of the master tapes (of which there was a reportedly huge trove) were erased, reused, or impaired during/following the production of DSet & Reckoning.

    Nonetheless...

    Dick's Lucky 13

    The man even got his 80s' pix just exactly perfect! The Scar>Fire is a lovely 35-minute caprice from 11/1/79 amongst a spectacular second set, the capstone of which is that incredible Caution-Spanish themed jam out of He's Gone.

    Dick's Pick Vol. 13 Question

    I'm listening to Dick's Picks Vol. 13 (5/6/81) for the first time in a long time and have a question about the tracks on Disc 2. There is a Scarlet Begonias -> Fire on the Mountain on my Disc 2 but it's not listed in the liner notes, nor is it listed in DeadBase 50. What's up? Can anyone explain?

    Where are the 1980 Radio City/ Warfield Shows ?
    How come they haven’t been released including the tasty acoustic sets ?Are the sound board recordings lost ? How old do we have to get before we get to hear these gems ?

It was a mirage my friends, a fever dream brought on by the heat. The desert does strange things to a man, and you may see things that aren't really there. Wonderous visions of CD/DVD packages that miraculously unfold into pyramid-thingies, imaginary road trips of your imagination populated by camel-riding skeletons and bridges in the clouds. Web pages that appear and disappear in the blink of an eye, leaving only a tiny after image of an album cover to mark their passing. Have a cool drink, find a comfortable seat, and wait. And wait. And wait, in breathless antici.................pation. Perhaps the visions will come again.

OK, the information on Dick's Vol. 23 states that it's from two shows on February 23 and 24, 1968, in Lake Tahoe. Anyone got any idea which songs are from which shows? A Also, the photo in the CD tray shows a marquee listing a third date (the February 22), which makes me wonder if a tape exists for that, as well. And were these shows really at a bowling alley, as suggested by the other photo in the tray?

Hi guys It used to be possible to download PDF cover art for every release - these just disappeared at one point. I've purchased a lot of Dick's Picks and Download Series from the website in the last year and assumed that cover art was supposed to be included with downloads because in the downloading tool, a picture of the cover would appear in a little window. However I've never received any cover art files (except for the Road Trips Full Show downloads). I contacted GD Customer Service and was told that cover art is not offered. This seems a bit odd to me - front and back PDFs were available for download for any downloadable release, whether one had purchased it or not. Now that I am purchasing several downloads, I'm apparently not entitled even to a picture of the front or back of the CD. Does anyone have any idea where I could get these? I find it bizarre that the official website no longer provides cover art for downloadable versions of its own products, after having high quality scans up previously. It's no great loss I suppose but I'd really like to print out covers so the spines of my Dead CD downloads aren't all back. Any thoughts?

I was planning on buying some of the Dick's Picks CD's that I was missing, but when I checked the store, I see quite a few of the ones I wanted are only available as downloads. Are there any plans to do any reprints, are you guys basically done with the CD format?

Thank you so much cosmicbadger. That's perfect. I knew they'd be somewhere - I just didn't know where. I can't figure out why they are no longer available from dead.net. Sure, I've elected to download a release instead of buy the CD (in the case of Dick's Picks) but that's not to say I don't burn the tracks to disc as soon as I get them. The fact that these used to be available and suddenly disappeared, apparently intentionally, rather than inadvertantly as I had hoped/assumed, is puzzling. Anyway, thanks again cosmicbadger. Maybe there are Dick's Picks cover art scans out there somewhere.

If somebody has downloaded a legal version of a DP, and somebody who has a store bought physical copy makes a cover scan and gives it to the first person free of charge, is there a copyright violation or would it be considered fair use? Or will a Rhino lawyer use some pissy little thing like that to justify their existence? Hmmm. ********************************************* I have a sigfile! --> www.kindveggieburritos.com *********************************************

<> Don't they usually give you a chance to case and desist before they actually sue? I probably wouldn't mind downloading the Dick's Picks releases I don't have, if I could also download all the appropriate artwork so I can print up my own version that at least looks like the originals when they're sitting in the CD box next to the others.

hey bobsdead, the downloads are available here, and worth every little penny. Also you can try the Ameoba Records in Berkely, or the one on Haight Street, they carry many of the dick's picks cd's both new and used. If you haven't been there it worth the flight out, these are the best music stores on the planet.Good luck!

DP 28, used/like new - cheapest thru an amazon marketplace seller is $99 + shipping. I'd be checking local used CD places first. Amazon was the only place I checked, but there were four or five (from 28 up) that appeared to be unavailable as new. ********************************************* I have a sigfile! --> www.kindveggieburritos.com *********************************************

I saw that there were a number of problems with one of the cuts on the Winterland 73 Box set. Have all the faulty discs been replaced. That is, going forward, when I order the box set and I guaranteed an error free disc 2? Thanks! "Is maith an scéalaí an aimsir." Time is a great storyteller. -- Irish Proverb

Bobsdead, I feel your pain when it comes to completing my DP collection. The last one I need is DP 33, which is an especially killer release anyway. I kept putting off buying it, for simple economics, dang. I guess it will be a fun hunt looking for an afffordable copy somewhere. Its funny, I have no problem with the idea of downloading Road Trips releases, but the DP packaging is just so cool... plus there's the whole "collection" thing. I just don't feel as loyal to Road Trips as a "thing" (but love the music on them, for the most part). So, the quest for DP33 begins. PS, not that I HAVE all the other DPs - I never bought DP 9, 17, 30, or 32 either, for various reasons. My AUD recording of 8/7/82 (awesome show and tour) is so great that even the cleaned up SBD on DP32 is a let down, for example.

As the DP series goes out of print, if you own them look on the bright side: You can sell them for outrageous prices and fund a semester of your kid's college education, lol. (but, they'll have to pry my DP's from my cold, dead, fingers).

I contacted customer service the other day about whether DP 33 would be reprinted on CD, and they told me the store would get them back in on CD sometime in the future (not much more specific than that). I kind of get the sense Rhino is reprinting all of them as they go out of print. I only started buying archival Dead releases in the last four years or so, and haven't had much trouble getting any of them (except DP33). All the Dick's Picks I've ordered up until recently came with the old Grateful Dead Recordings logo, but the two I ordered most recently (DP22 and DP24) both came with a Rhino label.

I have about 15 dicks picks, and recently was informed that there missing alot of songs for complete shows. For instance, DP 1 is 1 disc, but, theres like 10 tracks at the beginning of the show that arnt on the original DP. I've downloaded the complete shows now. Why would they release only part of the show and call it DP? Just curious thats all. Peace- Moye

I read somewhere that when the Dicks Picks first started they did not think folks would buy lots of multi CD sets so they just put out 'best bits'. Later on they put out near complete shows, missing out some set 1 tunes so they could fit (for example) most of 1 show on 2 discs. Later on the releases got more and more complete. A good place to find out what exactly is on each DP and what is missing is here: thebestofwebsite dot com and follow links through the Grateful Dead Live. CB

Hi all - just an FYI, based on our discussion in spring about the DPs going out of print. With no fanfare or announcement, they are indeed reprinting DPs. Or at least, I found that DP 33 was back on CD (and immediately ordered it). The operator actually told me it was not available on CD, and I pointed out that the website now said it was, she confirmed it with her supervisor, and yeay! It is on its way. So, if anyone is wanting to fill in those DP gaps, now would be a good time (and I feel sorry for any poor slobs who actually paid 100 bucks for a DP on ebay...) The only other DPs I don't have are 9, 17, 30, and 32. I can't stand the keyboard wash on 9 and 17, and my AUD of DP 32 sounds way better than the SBD to me, but should I get DP 30? Not too blown away by what I've heard, but I've only heard samples of those shows...

Apparently November 3rd is 'Cracking the Vault' day and a whole raft of material '100s of shows' will appear. It is not clear what the quality will be of these tapes (not all GD btw), to what extent they have or have not been remastered and how many of them are already out there in torrent land (possibly already remastered by Mr Miller and the like). I am hanging on to my credit card till we get a chance to see what is on offer. still its exciting and may encourage the rhino mob to pull their fingers out and start selling more whole shows as downloads. A price war on Grateful Dead shows looms???? My its easy to forget how lucky we are to have all these choices and options to worry and argue about :-)

The bonus disc for the 69 Fillmore West box definitely did come in a plain white sleeve, but I believe it was included inside the box, so if the box is indeed sealed (which I would be surprised if it was) then the bonus disc should be in there. The Winterland 73 and 77 box sets each included a bonus disc in its own sleeve, but it wasn't plain white, and again it was included inside the box. I know that Rockin' the Rhein also included a bonus disc but I don't know whether it was in a plain white sleeve or not.

i agree to a boxed set of 1971 April Fillmore run. I love the Beach Boys segment of it, i don't think you can listen to it on archive.org, because it says this music is an Official Release... Just go ahead and release the whole run, in the correct order please..Ha!! One thought i have though is about the bonus disks.... I really wish they would be available for download for the unfortunate few of us that are poor. If, later on down the road, i buy any of the older Road Trip releases, it says-sorry the bonus disk is no longer available. I just wish that it you can pay a 4.99 fee or so, and download the disk. Just my $.02 worth.... Can't really complain though.. No one is complaining, no, come in and shut the door. Set the Sails. Fire up the Grate Psychedelic Rocket Powered Bus. Into the Land of the Dead.

http://www.wolfgangsvault.com/concerts/support/downloads.html huge selection of Grateful Dead shows now for sale as downloads from Wolfgangs Vault. Many other bands too. I am not sure how they squared this away with Rhino and the Band, but it all seems legit. Also I have no idea of the quality of the material or how it compares with the soundboards that already circulate. Not cheap either at $9.98 per set. So much good stuff there....

Is any of the video vault shot in HD or suitable for conversion to HD/Blu-Ray? I'm watching Ticket to New Year's now as I normally do this time of year, and as with some of the other DVD's it is pretty blurry when not displaying close-up shots (especially on an HD TV). I would probably upgrade to Blu-Ray on the DVD's I have and would be interested in new Blu-Ray releases more so than new DVD releases. * * * * * * * * * * * * * * -enjoyin' the ride -There'll never be another Jerry

For the life of me, I don't know why the Download Series shows have been pulled from the store. Sure, they probably don't get MUCH traffic, but there are some of us who either joined the site late or who are SLOWLY, album by album, picking up all of the stuff here as money becomes available. I've been grabbing all of the new releases for over a year now, and I've managed to snag a few of the Dick's Picks sets that I didn't already have; however, with the $100+ each for the two Winterland boxes and my decision to dl all of the 2009 The Dead shows as they came out, it's sometimes hard to anticipate what will and won't be available here from one day to the next. All I know for sure is that, after the most recent site redesign a couple of months ago, all of the Download Series shows disappeared. My fervent hope is that they are being remastered for HDCD release. Sure, I know that the Download Series is still available on iTunes, but I want the high quality FLAC downloads, not the crappy MP3 versions. Additionally, I would vastly prefer to spend my money here rather than to purchase through a middle man or a retail outlet--support the music, support the musicians! Finally, although it doesn't affect me in any way (since I've already got the complete run of official downloads), what's up with offering the different The Dead 2009 shows at different prices, ranging from $12.99 to $20.99? I burned every show from FLAC to CD and, without exception, they are all 3-CD sets, and from the shortest to the longest ones there are only a couple of minutes' difference in total show length.

Does anyone know when View from the Vault II CD will be back in stock? It is a shame to see out of print titles such as this one going on Ebay for major bucks. An auction just ended for VFTV II for over $140! I am trying to complete my collection and I simply can't afford to be paying these kinds of dollars.

suggest you do not under any circumstances email customer services. i did last october and sent repeated reminders. their tactic is either to completely ignore the messages or refer you to the website which refers you to customer (dis) services, bit of a catch 22 me-thinks, i once got a reply to one of my enquiries to the effect that customer services were "taking up the issue with management". but pearls of wisdom were not forthcoming. christ on a bike. this is not rocket science. perhaps the more people who raise the enquiry the more chance of a proper reply but i would not bet on this.

The comment on emailing Customer Services is spot on. However, I'm delighted the need to email customer services has dimished significantly now that the web site store works. Happy Trails
