Sure. But somehow if it isn't a show from Europe. . . it just wouldn't be almost exactly perfect.

Anyone know why they skipped over "Live/Dead" in the expanded reissue program?  That's my favorite GD album, for old-times sake.

My guess is that it is related to the fact that they are sticking to their guns about keeping the '69 Fillmore box set (and I guess material} from being reissued.

But the Dark Star St Stephen and The Eleven  Lovelight  are spiced from 2 different nights. Had the issues the Dark Star St Stephen with the correct second part—that would have made a good disc— and the other half in whole as well.

No argument from me. I hope we see a reissue. But they skipped over it. . . we'll see.

Also: no bonus material on the collected early discs. Just the l.p. Material.

Well, the box was the first of their sort of annual big box set releases and because it was such classic and lauded material it sold out fast and has commanded high prices in resale markets ever since. Among the faithful I've seen lots of queries of "why don't they just redo the damned thing!" and although I don't think I've seen an official response the assumed answer is that they don't plan on doing that, period. They mean these sets to be limited and have stuck to their guns.

I'd love to see it redone. In a moment of idiocy I let mine go. I certainly would love to have a Plangent Process remaster of the "Live/Dead" release with some extra material. I have not seen an official reason why we haven't had one, nor a statement we won't. I have a nice SHM-CD version from Japan I listen to when I get the itch and don't want to hear my original vinyl 2 LP with its snap crackle and pop.

Could have added a bonus show as an alternative. Like the whole set with Clementine.

My thoughts on not reissuing Fillmore West box could be related to the RSD Day releases  of 2/27/69 and 2/28/69 on vinyl.

RSD 2/27/69 has the Dark Star and St Stephen from Live Dead.

I did order vinyl and 2cd set for Grateful Dead’s latest release. I was surprised that 2 CD set is sold out on Dead.net

Must have been a mistake. Now back I stick. Ordered mine through Amazon.

RSD 2021 5/3/72 Paris , Olympia Theatre 6 LP 

Show from Europe 72 box. I have the box but these Grateful Dead releases for RSD are great sounding.

But they have released some of the RSD on CD.

Agreed. Great releases.

A pretaste of the price of the Paris set.

The nice thing is the quantity is 6700 , which should make them available without going out on RSD.

I generally buy the RSD vinyl sets on line at Plaidroom which doesn’t mark them up. The Miles’s Jack Johnson vinyl set looks good as well, has tracks that are only available on the Complete Jack Johnson CD set. Bought the RSD offerings of IASW and BB sets in the past ....very enjoyable.

The Grateful Dead Olympia Theatre is 6 LPS and 11 sides of music plus an etched side.  Not likely but it would be nice if it was going to be some bright psychedelic design...

It would be nice if they put some music on that side.
