It's good enough I'll probably spring for the other two. Sort of my self compensation for living 7 miles from red rocks, but not being able to see a single show. Next year I will be more prepared... and I am definitely gonna see the Kimock shows in October.

I bought a RRE show from livedownloads.com and it was the former when I was expecting the latter. A few burned CDs wasn't worth the extra cost to me. Was wondering what the Furthur shows were like.

For example, I bought the discs of a RRE show I attended on 12/30/11 thinking they'd be the former, but when I flipped them over they were just regular blue dye CD-Rs that had been burned. In other words, I wasted an extra few bucks on discs when I should have just gotten the download, saved the time with DAE, etc.
I bought the downloads of the Red Rocks run and am currently listening to them. They sound great. As much as I would have liked to attend all three shows, I'm more than content spending about $50 for SBDs of all three rather than three times that (or more?) to attend them.
Is there a difference between pressed CDs and silver CD-Rs?
Besides the fact that a pressed CD is made differently than a CD-R, the difference would be in the change of color on the bottom of the disc. A pressed CD has the same shade of silver all the way across. A CD-R will have a change in shade between the burned and unburned sections. If the CD-R was burned to capacity, there is no real way to visibly tell the difference between the two discs.
