Reports about the box set are flooding in and the news is that a small number of Enthusiasts will have a “golden ticket” that wins them a gold record. Like, an actual gold record from the Dead? A replica like those plastic batting helmets popular in the 80’s? I don’t know: there is a contest and the winner will receive “a personalized Grateful Dead 30 Trips RIAA-certified Gold Record plaque”.
What does that mean?
No idea. A geegaw of some sort.
Gold. So, yeah.
Y’know what would’ve been better?
If they did it like at hockey games. A few box sets would have Phil’s signature and if you got one of those, you got a shot on goal from center ice, but there was a plexiglass shielld over it that left a tiny little opening
The contest has different names regionally, I believe.
The New Jersey Devils called it Score-O. Where would you even do this?
And what would be the prize?
For guys: dinner at Phil’s place, half-off excluding drinks and dessert.
What if a woman wins?
Billy sticks it in her for a few minutes.
