    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]).

    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!

It's still in the menu but all it is, is (homage to Bubba Clinton) a list of every show's date with the venue below and a link to "details". Wasn't it once a list of links to each indvidual year? As it is now you have to page through every show to find the year you want. So, if you're lookin' for 1972, first you have to find what page 72 starts on by using the process of elimination and once you find it see which page of shows from 72 has your date. Is that clear? A simpler explanation: "Shows By Year" is the same thing as the "All Shows" only with 3 lines as opposed to 1line on "All Shows.". 1 day closer to springtime!!

commercial purposes, but I'd suggest that if you want to post a marketing survey you post in in the Your Own Storefront topic in the forums, which is the designated area for hawking one's wares.

I see that at least one person posted earlier about the Show By Year problem ... um, couldja fix it already? The Show by Year on Deadnet is (or was) a great resource -- very user friendly, easy to search, a great quick "go-to" reference. But now, unless you're looking up, oh, '66 or '67, it's a serious pain. Not even really usable unless you feel like playing Click-on-a-Page Roulette. It's got to be a glitch, and not an intentional "Improvement" (I hope I hope), so I have the feeling that some techie at Deadnet WOULD know how to put it back, if someone would just ask nicely. So, pretty please? :-)

I just clicked on the almanac and went to comics and saw the images coming from Hunter's "Rosemary". Ye Gods! That was not funny. I'd never really listened to those lyrics before and even as I listened to the song (they have that feature now) the lyrics were hard to make out. If the Grateful Dead were really singing songs for those who have passed away (with Hunter & Barlow making up the words) then they were also riffing on ghosts, as Rosemary seemed to be some watery image from a goth H.P. Lovecraft novel. It's still sending shivers up and down my spine. Yikes, this might be enough to scare me away forever!

that way. We have topics for a lot of likely categories in which you are welcome to post questions, comments, etc. If you have something to say or ask that doesn't seem to fit, or would like to have a new topic started, send me a PM. Thanks.

just go to the What Else Should We Be Talking About? topic and post there. Or do what's currently happening in the Deadheads, Religion and Spirituality topic, start brainstorming a secular version with folks who think there's a need for one, and when it jells we'll launch it.

I am not able to order from the store using different my name or my wife's name and using different credit cards. Yesterday was a one day special on Road Trips with free shipping and you guys missed out on $100 order. That is ridiculous. I can see that Rhino is still screwing up royally on milking this cash cow.

Could we please get a newspaper thread?For "news" about any topic, good, bad or strange. But news that was read in a newspaper and the link to the article is a must so you can go read it if you like. Could we get a GD family concert thread? A place to post any state or county live music. Just asking. Thank you.

I'm not sure this is the right forum to ask but maybe you can steer me to the right place? I have a cassette, " Greatful Dead, Dead Set" on Arista from around 1981. It's a 2 album recording with some of my favorite tracks like Samson & Delilah, Brokedown Palace etc. It's worn out and I'd like to get it on cd. Anyone know where I can order it? Thanks..

I subscribed on the very first day Dave's Picks was advertised back in October, but I still have not received vol. 1. Two calls to customer service led to a replacement being sent (on 23 March I was told - I never got an email confirmation); however this one has still not made it to Europe. All of my previous orders with dead.net arrived within 15 days. I am particularly concerned, and posting this plea here, as DP1 is now sold out and DP 2 will be shipping soon. Marye, can you please help? Thanks.

If the dead.net store doesn't have it (and I assume that is why you posted here, otherwise look there and support the band) then go to Amazon which has 8 left in stock. I love Deadset also. It rocks. Also, Reckoning is the pick for choice acoustics from this run.

On the community page there's a feature for uploading fan photos, and we THINK that it's working properly now after much drama, so give it a try...

Is there a way I can hide the product threads? It's bothering me to have to wade through so many of them to find the threads I want to read. OR how about one catalog thread-showing all of the products in there. I guess they are what fund this site, but...to me it feels like the community feeling is tipping over into sales only.

you might be interested in purchasing, INSTEAD of a mini billboard of a 'related product' obscuring the view (picture) of what you might be wanting to buy. This is a bizarre way to try and sell stuff. To hide what you want the customer to see, behind a picture of group of 'related products'. Or the even more strange when you hide the product the customer wants to see behind a BLANK 'related product' cutain which obscures the product the customer was attempting to view. So the idea is that every purchase should a mystery (grab bag?) at the GD store? "It ain't what you don't know that gets you into trouble, it's what you know for sure that ain't so." M. Twain.

Are there going to be any special events marking the 5th Anniversary of the new deadnet? I think there should be! I wonder if Marye can be persuaded to write a piece for us on her experiences as our heroic moderator over the years. I am sure there are many untold stories she can share with us (amended to protect the innocent and guilty of course). How about it Marye :-)

The mic on GDHour does not show when I try to share GDHour 760; & we all know the GDHour ONTHEAIR mic makes the post look great. The same problem has come up with taper's section quite often, maybe because multiple thumbs have been offered...I dunno'.
