    you just did.
    What you can't do is start a new thread. I see you've posted elsewhere, so I think this is resolved?

    a positive Brian Dyke review

    Here's one largely positive review from Brian Dyke, in Taping Compendium Vol. I: of Denver Coliseum, Nov 20 1973 - though some of the details of his description don't match what I hear, and he resorts in a couple of places to (mild) versions of his typical fault-casting (saying "the triad of 'Promised' > 'Bertha' > 'Greatest Story,' falls flat on its face" - which just isn't so, I think ["Promised Land" 's particularly rhythmically good, w/very spunky drumming; Jer flubs the 2nd verse of "Bertha," though]).

    We hope that the answers below will help with any questions that you may have.
    We are very sorry for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience.

    Who do I speak to about.... A new GDM merch product?

    I have had a great idea for quite some time about a merch product that I would love to see come to fruition.
    I believe the only way to do it right would be through GDM, as it would be a Highly Iconic design or two, used in a 'NEW' way, it would be a very popular item GDM should maintain control of.
    Please let me know whom to contact!
    Thanks!

I'm curious about how to record shows by Phil & Friends, Furthur, and who ever. You used to need a ticket for the "Tapers Section" but how is that all handled now? do you just show up at a show with your gear and they just let you in ? Check Out My Orignal Music at myspace.com/salaversano

not really. If you can remember a distinctive phrase in the post, put it in quotes and use the search tool on the upper left. That's about it.

but then you'd get everything in which that username appeared. You can't search for posts BY someone, but you can search for their name. If you can remember a distinctive phrase in the search you're probably going to have better luck searching for that.

I see that RARE CUTS AND ODDITIES is available from the GD store again. That's "grate" for everyone who would still like to have a copy at the reasonable issue price rather than going on eBay or Amazon and paying a premium to get the CD but it would be nice if when a CD goes out of print there was a notation in the store listings that it is scheduled to be re-issued or has been discontinued. Would it be that difficult to have a list of "out of print" discs that are not scheduled for a re-issue?I, for one, would like to know if several of the Dick's Picks volumes, which are currently unavailable, will be re-issued.

This site is becoming a popular destination for spammers. They are now making posts in an effort to hock their wares. See page 23 of the Philly '89 Now Available release pages and the post by jerrym. You can tell they are spammers because they are always new members for less than a day. Is there any way to prevent this?

I'm sure there are ways around it but at least they'd have to work harder. I can see the drawback being those legit users that just don't know the answers. Nonetheless, you are on to something. Good thinking, kudos.

This is a great idea, I too, have noticed the increased spammer presience and a question to answer would be ideal, there are so many to choose from, it could be changed every 3 to 6 months, multiple choice:strangers stopping strangers just to________ a. say hello b. smoke a bowl c. dance and twirl d. shake hands the list is endless:) what a great idea.

Is there any way to edits one's posts for embarassing mistakes, AFTER they have been posted.PLEASE & THANK YOU! JimmieJi
user picture

Member for

JimmieJi, very good question. I've had a couple of posts where I wish I could have edited them. But, unfortunately there is no way to do it brother. I must say, that this always makes me think even harder about my posts, and what I've written. So I guess it does help in that sense...but once you press post comment it's set in dead.net stone. A few suggestions for when you post here though: 1. Always preview comment ~ to see how it's gonna post, this will help 2. Proofread your comments, although there is a built in spell checker reread what you write. 3. Sometimes on long posts I'll copy and paste into Notepad because there is nothing more frustrating than writing a big post and accidentally hitting forward or back in the browser and your post is gone. 4. Always have fun! Hope this helps! ~CC _____________________________________________ Will you come with me?

You mean the extended version or 2004 reissue of the Terrapin Station album with the 16 minute Dancing at the end of the disc? Released - 1977 Original Label - Arista A re-mastered version was initially released as part of the box-set, Beyond Description on Oct. 26, 2004 on Rhino. Released individually March 2006 You can buy the extended version on the album, I just checked on itunes for $9.99 or I'm sure you can find it on Amazon or somewhere else. Hope this helps our new friend. ;-) _____________________________________________ Will you come with me? Once in awhile you can get shown the light in the strangest of places if you look at it right!

Has any decision been made to bring back the Download Series???I am still missing 3 of the shows and want to buy them... Hopefully they will get re-posted? Anyone?? Also, I purchased some '09 shows.. but cd artwork was never included. Is this ever going to be posted either? Woudl love to get the real artwork, since so many other downloads here have it, or have had it.

Hello,I would like to know if, according to copyrights, I am allowed to do my own Shirt with using at least the Steal Your Face logo on its backside by uploading this logo to this website: www.spreadshirt.com I DO NOT WANT to make this Shirt on this website to sell it (even through a web t-shirt shop). I only would like to create and make only one personnal shirt for me. May you give me further information if such operation is illegal or not according to pending licences on this logo. Best Regards. (Sorry for my bad english written, I am French !)

It's available on amazon.com apparently... but only in MP3 format... makes no sense why it's not here any more.Makes more sense to have people pay for it here, than download it from amazon, or leech it off a bit-torrent site....

I would encourage the band to make all the rehearsal shows available for download. I and I think a lot of folks would love to get this music. The music this band is making is pleasing a lot of folks like shows haven't done at least for me since the 70's and a few good years in the 80's. The energy level is high and it shows in the music they are making. All downloads do not have to be 3 discs. May 28 fit on 2 discs with GDTRFB fitting at the end of dics 1. Mayeb they could package all the shows together. Thank you..Big Moe

why is it when I come to this site (and I have an account) there is no music? Shouldn't there be some streaming of great dead music when I come here?! Its about the music after all! I have really considered buying the winterland 1973 (nov 10) cd package but how can I preview o make sure it is the cd of the tape I owned so long ago? Any suggestions? Archive dot org removes it when there is a commercial release (fair enough) but how can I have a quick listen before buying? Its not on iTunes... any suggestions? Also, Dead.net should consider a format like iTunes where you can have a quick preview of songs....(but not sell by the song!!! never go there!)

Marye, thought you were gonna check on the Download series availability? Just looking to see if there's any plans. Would like to get the flacs, and I'm sure so many others would too. I can't see how it actually costs the company money to keep a link online... it's revenue generating. I can get the mp3's from amazon (no thanks) and so may forums have the bittorrents but that's just stealing. Why can't legit customers get the product? makes little sense to me.... Still would love to get the artwork for the cd's too.. not sure why that seems to be such a hard thing to acquire too.

Just about the entire GD catalogue including the Download Series and Rare Cuts and Oddities can be purchased online in FLAC or MP3 or ALAC from: http://www.livedownloads.com/live-music/3,461/Grateful-Dead-mp3-flac-do… you can download the front cover from that site too. If you want all the artwork send me a pm and I will tell you where to find it Why you can buy there releaes from livedownlaods and not from here beats me..but at least they can be found somewhere!
