    Licensing Grateful Dead Artwork

    Has anyone here recently worked out a licensing arrangement for imagery? News article indicate licensing moved to Rhino Records a couple years ago, but it's not evident from their site how to properly go about becoming a licensee. Please help a Head! Thanks all.

    Tapes of GD shows on Ebay

    I'm seeing 90 minute tapes of "vintage" GD shows being sold on Ebay for as much as $50/show. Does the Grateful Dead condone this?

    Hello,
    I wrote a movie script about the Grateful Dead. Who can I contact to ask permission to use their songs? Any help would be appreciated.

    I received a brand new and…

    I received a brand new and sealed copy of Dave's Picks, Vol. 30 w/bonus disc for Christmas. I opened it up and to my surprise, I found my copy to be numbered 190/300. I've seen some unnumbered promo copies released for other volumes, and I know there was a run of 500 extra copies of Vol. 3 to replace some copies that disappeared, but I can't seem to find any information on Vol. 30. Does anybody out there have any idea of what I might have? Thanks.

    Hey, dude from India!!

    So, you're a spammer, AND a Deadhead??? Interesting combination............

    Ultimately, Captchas are useless for spam because they're designed to tell you if someone is 'human' or not, but not whether something is spam or not.........

    Now it's not just the state, it's your nosy neighbor, your ex-spouse and people who want to spam you......

I live in the UK and recently ordered daves picks 4 and other items from the store. I received no communication regarding dispatch and after sending several emails to customer service who always told me they had passed them onto the relevant dept for action, but I never got a reply. In the meantime I received an email informing an item on my order was cancelled but with no excplanation. I telephoned in the end and was told by someone called Zoe that the reason my order was cancelled was because international orders are not accepted. When asked why I could place a confirmed order and be quoted international postage she could not answer. Can someone please explain is this true and why is this allowed to occur. It is strange to encourage international business then not accept it. peter

Is more oriented toward sales than community. I hope sincerely that they are working out the kinks raher than moving to this as a permanent format. It was useful to know who was on line. The old search engine functioned better than the new one. One good thing about this format is that the spammers seem to be pretty much banished. I hope dead.net can get the best of both worlds together when they bring the Chat Room out ofBeta and get the whole catalog once again on line. It is beyong me that this whole project was taken up at Christmas time when most retailers are doing more than 40% of their year-long business. Ah well, I have long ago stropped trying to fathom the mysertium tremendous powers behind Rhino on Grateful Dead issues.... So, my questions is: Does Rhino plan to go back to the old format once the bugs are worked out?

whether the chat room, the search tool, and the who's online features are on the to-do list, yes. In the meantime, you can get a list of who's online by going to the chat link above; the list is on the right of the chatroom page. It is, as noted earlier, a list of who's online, not who's in the chatroom at this juncture. As to community, well, it's not like it can be artificially generated, whatever tech snake oil guys say. The members make it happen, we just have a venue and try to manage it as well as we can within the constraints we've got.

I simply want to change my shipping address for my Dave's Picks 2013 subscription. Unlike virtually every other online retailer, I am unable to manage my account and order information in the Dead.net store. I had hoped by now that the store would have transitioned into a user-friendly arena. I phoned the customer service hotline and was told that I could make no changes to my order! The first volume of the 2013 Dave's Picks subscription is still roughly two months away from actual shipping, but no changes can be made. Ridiculous. I have already been billed and paid for an entire year worth of music that I need to have shipped to a new address and am having difficulty being told that this is not possible. I know that is indeed possible but wish that I didn't have to traverse so many hoops to get it done. What needs to be done? Who can help?

How do I find a particular show in the Taper's section, specifically from 10/18/80 and 10/19/80? Cosmicbadger had created a list of vines ( where is it now?) and I think there is a similar document for the Taper's section.

Hey folks! I'm new here and I had a quick question. I work for Brookvale Records; we are the independent record label out of Long Island, NY releasing the Dick's Picks Series on vinyl. I'd like to start sharing info on here about our latest releases. But of course I wish to do so in an appropriate manner. Before I started posting about Dick's Picks Vol. 3 & 4 on sale and info on the upcoming Vol. 5 release, I thought I'd check in here. I'm certainly aware of community guidelines around forums like this acting as a fan, but I'm curious what the guidelines are for me as a "business." Am I permitted to post photos or links to our Store page, etc. within reason? If so, what specific forums would be appropriate for that? Don't want to be shunned for spamming!

Hi, I'm the forum moderator. Excellent questions all. Couple of possibilities here; you could post in the Your Own Storefront thread, which some shops and craftspeople do, or we could start a thread specifically for the DP on Vinyl series. Lemme know what you'd prefer.

Hello,hope this is the right place to ask a question-this site is hard to figure out.About 8 years ago my friend gave me a show on a cd that had a year and Gay Parees written on it,assuming this meant Paris and I cant remember the year but it sounded like mid seventies-cant find the cd.It had a killer Friend with a long,beautiful keyboard solo in it.I used to play this for my young daughter,she loved this particular version.How can I find this show? The archive has a F.O.T.D. listed in Paris on 9-20-74 but its not the same version that was from my show.Can anyone help me find this show as my daughter who recently went away to college specifically asked me to find this song for her.Maybe there is hope to turn her on to the dead yet, as I have been trying for 18 years!Any help would be greatly appreciated.

which is not infallible, reveals no Paris shows between 1974 and 1990. The latter would sound quite a bit different from the '70s.

Hi guys and gals,I am collecting up stories from a particular show in Portland on June 12, 1980. During the second song in the second set, Mt. St Helens blew 54.5 million cubic yards of ash into the air which drifted over the Portland area as the show was getting over with. The after show parties are legendary and I wanted to see if any of the folks who remember that night would be willing to share any details. Please let me know. This was an extremely interesting confluence of thought and some significant ideas were born that night. It would be great to see where any of it went. Thanks.

China Doll doesn't appear in the list of songs? Why not? Also if one enters "china doll" in the search box, it comes back with no results, site-wide.

Hi, Just curious what happened to the Taper's section --- no new entries after the Oct 14-20 entry? That's as much a question as it is a statement: I haven't seen a new entry in over a week, which is very odd, so perhaps I am doing something wrong? BTW, your all doing a great job. I look forward to each week's offerings with great anticipation! Thank you!

Is there any plans to publish the 4th Volume of 30 Days of Dead? Matching the show and date with the download was something I looked forward to during November, it is kind of like a month long holiday celebration.

Yes. It kicks off on Friday. Check out the Almanac on the homepage. In it the 2013 edition of 30 Days of Dead is mentioned.

Just wondering why Heads north of the U.S can't play the 30 DOD contest. It seems wrong to me. Hell I'd pay for the shipping if that was an issue. That pretty much goes for ANY contest that Deadnet puts on. Lots of us up here.

The issue is that legal requirements for contests vary from country to country, and crafting a contest that's legally compliant inside and outside the US is prohibitively complex. We're sorry about this, as it is certainly a bummer for non-US folks.

I would like to obtain a soundboard-quality copy of the Dead concert in Vancouver 40 years ago so that I can surprise an old friend who attended the show with me, for his 60th birthday. I would gladly pay to get this recording.

I have downloaded a Taper's version from archive.org, but would like something with better fidelity. The soundboard version on archive.org is much better but can't be downloaded from the site anymore. I just don't want to rip off the Dead in any way. Snazzy, yes! I'm also desiring to obtain the May 17, '74 Vancouver Wall of Sound concert, which was a blast also. Three days after the new Dave's Picks offering! These Canada gigs seem off the radar.

I do not know of any such commercial product. You might ask in the Tapers thread in the forums in case someone has/knows of the existence of a better recording than what you've got. You could also email David Lemieux at vault@dead.net; he lives in that part of the world too, and might be able to shed some light on the state of vault tapes of that show.
