What happened to all the official release GD video?

What happened to all the official release GD video?

Postby jackevorkian » Wed Dec 28, 2011 5:18 am

I had the urge to upgrade from VHS to DVD and was surprised to find out that Dead Ahead, Ticket to New years, Downhill from Here and So Far are no longer available on DVD. When did they stop selling these?

I have everything else already on DVD, but as far as I can tell, the only thing still readily available is the GD movie and Truckin Up to Buffalo.

If you look at the prices...it's $60 for Dead Ahead, $50 for Buffalo, Ticket to New Years is only available used, View From the Vault is $60. For some reason these videos aren't readily available anymore.

That's what I've been using lately. I was just hoping to round out the collection with the offical releases.

That's probably why I was able to up so many shows.
I would think they would want to take advantage of them.
Guess not.
