GD DVD/Video?????????

#3344 3 years, 5 months ago
Does anyone have any insight on when/if a new GD DVD will be released? There has to be tons of video, especially from the 80's & 90's, collecting dust in a vault somewhere so lets get on with it and start releasing it. Does anyone know what the deal is???? Thanks in advance for any insight...I'll ever accept rumors!

If you have not already, this dvd is incredible.

I think there is going to be a dvd, possibly two, in the upcoming Europe 72 box set.

Thanks for the replies. I have just about every official DVD release including Crimson White & Indigo. My hope is that they would release more in a more consistent manner. One poster said they release 1-2 per year but in reality Crimson White was the first official release in 5 years. Below is a list of the official release with the year they were released.

While this might very well be true, as the OP commented, video has been notably absent .... especially over the past decade, from all GD camps

I'm sure there is tons of footage from the stadium feeds of the 90's and plenty of P&F/Ratdog/theDead/Furthur at this point too.

I've long said that I'd much prefer to see the quantity of footage released, even as a "rough mix" vs. the traditional master & polished releases which might be the big road block to quick release. I realize it would be "thinking outside the box" to not go the traditional route, but maybe if the "powers that be" consider allowing raw footage - or not to many rungs removed - to be purchased at a lesser rate, it'd STILL be revenue vs. none at all!
