Because they are selling the set MINUS the bonus swag for the same $. No discount ?
:?:
But really - we have all gotten and will continue to get the music for free so no biggie.

My concern is why are they limiting the amount of sets besides to just make the money and eventually jack the price way up. It seems against the whole spirit of the music to limit it to a few thousand sets. It still pisses me off that they take stuff off archive once it is released there were quite a few Auds that I really liked that are no longer available.



no, theyre limiting the amount of sets because they want to actually sell all the produce. youre paying like 7.50 a disk, plus getting a bunch of extra stuff too. where are you getting this jacking prices stuff? the only people jacking prices will be the dudes flipping this set on ebay, and its not like GD is getting a dime of that


I should have made myself more clear. The people on Ebay were the ones I was talking about not the GD. Again, I have no objection to the price and am glad they will continue to sell the music..Hurray!!

I think we should add that Rhino bought the vault from the Dead . I don't know how much they are involved other than making a few comments about the releases.

Can't believe it. If they sold out in four days, wouldn't that give them the message that therre are plenty more dollars in another print run.

My experience with '72 shows is that the first set always seems very much the same, excluding the Playin' that usually lasts about 17 minutes and Bird Song for about 10. As tigerstrat said, "that's a helluva lot of versions of "Mr. Charlie"". So I would only be getting it with the intention of listening to the second sets (most deadheads probably agree with me on that).


I had the same thought about this. I mean, how many different versions of El Paso, Big River, Me And My Uncle, etc do you really need?

I can totally see your point, but for this one I think it's kinda special. I started buying the very first few dicks picks as they were released, buy haven't picked up too much of the released stuff except maybe one every year or so - mainly because of the awesome matrix mixes available on bit torrent. But to be able to get the entire run of the Europe '72 tour would indeed be cool - and it will provide literally years of listening enjoyment - especially if you dig listening to shows in their entirety. The other benefit is the quality from the CDs vs mp3s. All the stuff I get off torrent I push down to mp3 just to get it to fit on my iPod - but for something as monumental as this tour - to be able to access the high quality - and all 16 track remastered - seems like it's worth it for sure. It's like 20 bucks a show. I was just surprised it sold out so quick - but I really don't need all that extra stuff - just the music - even motivated me to go get a kick ass home system to enjoy it on!

I bought the box #2956/7200 and I never listened to the discs.
I need to sell it because I found out I'm going to be a dad.

$525

Let me know
