Grateful Dead

Three from 1975 Vine

(The fourth from 1975 is One From The Vault...)

Started by ltapilot.

Here are three of the four shows that were perfomed in 1975. All are good strong shows and very heavy on the psychedelic side. Enjoy...

As always the 3 from 75 will be in both FLAC/SHN and in WAV formats.

Mastering Notes
-- Various drop outs patched with SBD (shnid=9392).
-- Various drop outs patched to mono.
-- d2t0{6,7} - Transition between "Goin' Down The Road Feeling Bad" and "One More Saturday Night" patched with SBD (shnid=9392).

-- d2t04 - "King Solomon's Marbles" as listed is based on the sub-track titles from the CD version of "Blues For Allah", but just tracked here as one song. Title listings of this instrumental found on both commercial releases and legally traded sources are, to say the least, inconsistent. Whatever the case, we reckoned it was paramount to continue the tradition of inconsistency.

Taper Talk
-- According to Bob Menke, "It was an overcast day and we got there early. About 8:30 in the morning. That is how we ended up about 10-15 feet from the stage. The mics were mounted on broom sticks (handheld) and they were split about 20 feet apart. The upfront vocals I believe are the product of a small (relative to PA speakers) speaker on the floor of the stage next to the right PA column. The vocals seem to be blasting from that speaker. Another very intersting point is the fact that the Jefferson Starship opened and their sound from the same PA absolutely sucked. Nothing approaching the clarity and sound quality the Dead got from the same system."
