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!!caspersvapors wrote: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 thatrkubik wrote:I am a little torn on something with this. I have no objection to the price or what comes with the set as it all sounds really cool. 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.
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?Octal wrote:Torrents will probably be everywhere for this, so no need to worry about archive.org quite yet (although I am kind of worried).
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).
