Will the 4 CD version of 30 Trips Around The Sun just be available via Dead.net or will it also be available via all the usual retail outlets?

I was reading a magazine article about the dead and it mentioned this official release as an essential listen. Had the CD cover and everything. Am I missing something here?? Thought the boards were not in the vault

I have a Major important question about the USB Besides the fact that the USB is the same price as the box set, the fact we don't get the book is an issue, but I know you won't be doing anything about that.... which honestly kinda sucks Given the cost to produce the USB package vs the cd package (but still charging the same don't seem right, if your being honest with yourself....you should agree) Most importantly..... Will the 2nd sets of these shows run uninterrupted ? CDs fade out at end of disk two Fading back into disk three..... l hate that, can't sit back and chill to a second set that way! The reason I bought the USB is so there would be no breaks in the middle of the sets like the CDs will obviously be. This is probably a major issue for all people buying the USB (Even though there is only 1,000 of us) We don't get the booklet or the fancy box But that's not a problem, if they run uninterrupted I did not want the CDs for that reason (and storage too) as well as wanting 24/96 resolution (sweet) Has this question been brought up by anyone? and I hope you guys were smart enough to master the USB as uninterrupted shows, unlike the CDs (more work for you guys but you are charging enough for this package now dubbed "BOXILLA") I truly will be disappointed if there is breaks in the middle of a set This issue will be a major problem I'll want my money back if they are these interruptions, so....... Look forward to a response Thomas A. Violagis Jr.

Hi Fellow Deadheads,
I was posting to see if anyone out there had a copy of the 30 trips around the sun 80 cd box set that they were willing to part with at a fair price.
My hesitation of buying one off eBay is that they likely don’t have the best karma associated with them. My wife and I have been listening to some of the tapings of old shows and have really appreciated them.
If anyone is willing to get their box set to a new home please message me.
Thank you kindly,
Keith
