    Does The Grateful Dead apparel use sweatshops?

    hey 143!
    They still exist, but I don't think they're active. I think technology may have overtaken it all to some extent; it pretty much comes down to whether people still want to do things that way. It was fun to get those DVDs in the mail...

    Hey there Y'all -
    My Daughter was sorting through my records lately and found two unusual records (seem to be from a radio broadcast in 1981 on the NBC young adults network). If these are of value to the archive I would be glad to send them to the right person.
    Thanks

I checked, and I was wrong: you DO need to create a separate account for the Store. Let me know if you have problems doing this.

When does the subscription offer to 2011 Road Trips end? In other words, when do I have to get my payment in so I can take advantage of this offer?

on the page. And, in other news, I am told that the tracks on the bonus disc will be unique to that disc and not repeated elsewhere.

Allis, I don't know if you're still 'here' but I bought the Texas Road Trips set and got the bonus disk. IIRC the second disk was a bad pressing. It looked like pretty swirly rainbow watercolors under the outer edge of the plastic and would only play the first half, then start to skip more and more until the poor CD player would completely lose the plot, give up and holler for its mama. Anyway! I called the customer service number and after one -- yes, one -- relatively brief and very polite conversation the folks shipped a new CD (not the whole set, darn it! :)) within a couple of days that was just exactly perfect. I do need to think a bit about the Road Trips subscription package but not because of any problems or concerns what-so-ever about the store or the staff. Scott

Regine "Pegi", Prinzess of Hohenzollern (yeah, he wasn't lieing.It is me).Edelweiss. I am so glad to see contact from remainder of Grateful Dead in my mail. I always feel so much better when I put a Dead disc on the machine. But I haven't done it. I haven't done much of anything except keep my stepdad from dieing. Got six out of seven diabteoc wounds healed. Seems the loss of my "Baby Cats" took the heart out of me. Haven't been out to sing, haven't put a disc on to spin, haven't had music in my ears. Not except by default; an infomercial from the 60' & 70's which woke me up. Just not me anymore. Some things tear your heart out. It's happened too often. I'm exhausted. Am trying to do my new blog, http://prinzessinhohenzoller.blogspot.com but even that, I don't keep up. Except for Mannheim Steamroller found at the local Lowe's Hardware, haven't even thought about music. And before, I couldn't live a day without it. God the way things in this land are set up to destroy us. It's cheaper for them. Please keep sending the emails. I might reconnect with myself again. Love and Peace, Pegi Regine

Last summer I saw this guy wearing a shirt that said Grateful Dead AARP tour on it. It had a picture of a skeleton covered in roses using a walker. It also said something like "livin on meds vitamin C and Rogaine," A play on the line from Truckin. I've been looking for this shirt ever since. It would be perfect for my uncle! If anyone knows where to get one please please let me know!

short version, Gagalive, where the chat room resided, vanished without warning. We'll try to find a reasonable substitute, but the tech guys are a little swamped right now so it may take a while.

first of all check your spam folder. But if that doesn't work, send me a PM with the details and we'll straighten it out.

but I believe most of them are streaming at archive.org. You might check the Tapers Section, updated weekly with new clips chosen by David Lemieux.

Looking for a good breakdown of 'who sang what'. Which songs are always Jerry, which are always Bobby? Etc. etc. Any sort of master list you could guide me to? Any info is appreciated.

Here's a link to Music by Jerry, under the heading "The Band. http://www.dead.net/musicby/Jerry+Garcia Doodle around for the music by Bob, Phil, Vince and Brent. I see "Passenger" is listed under Phil, although Donna, then Brent, seem to be the primary vocalists. Check this site out for all sorts of info: http://www.deaddisc.com/index.html

Why don't the track listings appear for most of the music items in the store? See the store item pages for Dick's Picks 30 or Steppin' Out for example. It seems an important enough detail to include. Or, am I just missing it. Hmmm.

Hi there. I pre-ordered through this site, but haven't received a confirmation e-mail. Should I have? Should I simply assume that the order went through? Thanks, Joanne Dinsmore

but if you ordered when the site was crashing etc. on the first day, I'd follow up with customer service. If you reserved a copy when the reservation system went up, you should be hearing back shortly with ordering instructions. It is better to check with customer service than to just assume all is well, though.

I am looking to replace the jacket only to R/T 1.1.mine got warped in a monsoon rain storm in Key West Fla. this is my 3rd atempt to ask this Q. Talk to me!

as I have never heard of replacement jackets being available for recordings. I'd suggest looking on eBay in case somebody who leaves their CD in the rental car (only to have the rental car deny all knowledge of course) and finds themselves with an empty jacket decides to make a buck off it. But unfortunately it wasn't Road Trips I had this experience with...

Warner Brothers states it will not be responsible for actors of God like the USP Man stealing your E72 customized box because he was stoned. Neither shall they be responsible for your neglect of the weather in the Florida keys. It's all written into the fine print that absolves them of all legal action due to illegal substances and the 1968 "Thick Air" Bob Weir requested for Born Cross-eyed.

As of at least Febr. 12th, possibly before, Phil Lesh's web site has been missing in action. No re-direct, nothing. I find no mention of this at the fan site's forums, (PhilZone), anywhere-- only chatter on other stuff. Can anyone shed some light as to what my favorite instrumentalist on the planet is up to with that gorgeous chunk of cybersapce he developed? A moderator, if one exists? Anybody? Thanks. Sonic'72

Hi Marye, Before I ask my question(s) I just wanted to say to you that for the past two months I have noticed that you are just an incredibley hard working, huge hearted, fully responsive and priceless piece to all that is Dead.net and I want to thank you for all that you do... you rock! I am new to the Vine world and now find myself addicted... once again, I think your the one responsible for this :-) I have "met" some really cool people (well, interated with) through this vine and I can't wait to see the next door that Dead.net opens for me... I am looking for new vines, outside of the Dead family... like Mechelle N'degecello (sp?), Prince and/or other funky stuff... Are there other Deadheads like me that also have a funky side? Also, Road Trips... Any idea what the remaining 3 releases will be (what periods?). You don't have to divuldge the actual dates. Finally, yes Europe '72 !! I can't wait for the Suitecase... any tidbits that can be shared? Please ? Much love & respect, iGrateful

I am new to the forum scene here- and a great one it it! I was just wondering, in most (if not all) the forum topics, it says "You are not allowed to post" or something to that nature. If I wanted to post a new topic about the Greatful Dead movie being re-released this April, how & where would I do that? I would imagine a lot of heads (and those who never got to see the band) are excited about this event and it would be cool to hear about that. Thank you!

you would send me a PM about it. I'm the forums moderator and I can start topics. This is a basic chaos management issue. In this particular case, I suspect something more official is coming down the pike, but in the meantime, no reason we can't start something...

I'm not sure. He used to be pretty active on old Dead.net, now Deadnet Central/DNC, but when I checked over there the other day on the occasion of his birthday he didn't seem to be around so much anymore. I'll look into what the current PO Box status is because my brain is stuck in the old reality on that one (and it's Saturday so no one's around to ask) and I don't want to give you bad advice, but I'm sure there still exists some mechanism for writing a letter and having it forwarded, as it were. I'll let you know what I find out.

A page has just appeared asking international customers to select a shipping preference. Could we perhaps have a little more explanation? We have already agreed to a shipping cost of $85..I very much hope that is not going to change ...so what are the differences between shipping by UPS or USPS? thanks
