Dave’s Picks Volume 19: Honolulu Civic Auditorium, HI 1/23/70 - SOLD OUT
Aloha from Honolulu! If you are in need of a little island breeze this summer, look no further than Dave’s Picks Volume 19: Honolulu, HI, January 23, 1970. Our very first release from Hawaii, this one sees the Grateful Dead riding the great wave of change, with a fresh take for a career-defining new decade. Witness as they smoothly transition from the "Sound of 1969" and its chaotic psychedelia with their cohesive country-tinged, song-oriented harmonies. Yes, the yin and yang are well-balanced in these sets, with plenty of Pigpen favorites (“Hard To Handle," "Good Lovin'," a 35-minute "Lovelight") done just right, a wonderfully melodic "Dark Star," and the band breaking fertile ground on soon-to-be classics ("Black Peter," "Dire Wolf") from their upcoming and much beloved album, Workingman's Dead. We’ve rounded out this succinct complete show with a little over an hour of music from the following night, 1/24/70, including the rarity “I’m A King Bee,” possibly the best live version of “Mason’s Children” ever recorded, and a crowd-pleasing “Dancing In The Street." Just go on and say Mahalo!
Originally recorded by Owsley “Bear" Stanley and mastered to HDCD specs by Jeffrey Norman, this one is limited to 16,500 individually numbered copies.

Thanks KG.. its been a while since I listened to the BTP shows. I wonder what kind of magic they could do to these masters if they applied themselves?
I think I will add them to the queue for listening later.
I hope you are enjoying this streaming journey through the virtual vault, this episode is the Boston Tea Party run. While Jimi Hendrix was with the Band of Gypsies at the Fillmore East, our intrepid travelers were recovering from a late night in FL when they arrive in Boston for 3 incredible shows and what sounds like a wild party to end the Sixties.

So that concludes this quick trip through the 1969 section of the virtual vault. Next up off to the Fillmore and Hawaii where they say good bye to TC and brings us back to this Dave's which is TC's last official run.
Bet he wished he hadn't got the free ride to New Orleans, but that's another story.
For those of you following along the virtual tour of the virtual vault here's some fine examples of potential Dave's picks from goodies known to be in the vault, but yet unreleased.
Technically a continuation of the Family Dog which is in SF, this is a series of shorter runs for Uncle Bobo, where the Family Dog was of course run by Chet Helms.

Now this is sort of unfixed error that a dozen years later still hasn't been fixed. This is clearly an AUD, it is by Harry Ely, but it is linked to a fine AUD that allows a glimpse of the band the night before Altamont along with invitations for show.
Grateful Dead did not play as scheduled at Altamont 1969-12-06, instead they took shelter.

These recordings are some of the ones that got over shadowed in the building of the virtual vault and for 12 years sat unnoticed in between more noted shows. It's time to get better acquainted with them and so far i like what i hear.
These recordings deserve more attention and a box set waiting to happen. What interesting set lists, a band that is loose, playing for a friendly local SF crowd.

These are some prime cuts of Vault goodness that probably have too many guest artists to be practically releasable but would have made good Road Trips.
Below are my project notes for when i edit the recordings into set long suites, this way of listening helps recreate the experience of listening to a tape of the show, when played on a digital device.
it's cooler than you think, puts a little mystery back in the show and just a tad closer to being there.

3. Me & My Uncle* (3:55) *without Jerry Garcia; with Elvin Bishop
4. Checkin' Up On My Baby%** (5:26) **without Jerry with Elvin Bishop & Wayne Ceballos
5. Beat It On Down The Line** (2:39) **without Jerry with Elvin Bishop & Wayne Ceballos
6. Lovelight (46:59)
For unknown reasons, it appears that Jerry Garcia is missing for the first 5 songs, and Elvin Bishop plays lead guitar. The crowd, Phil & Bob acknowledge the missing Garcia after Smokestack, which must be the opener. Wayne Ceballos adds vocals for Checkin' Up and BIODTL. A faintly heard voice off microphone could be Garcia's just before Checkin' Up. Two days later during the same run, Pigpen ended up a spectator for some songs while Bishop & Ceballos sat in, so it seems possible that this is the case with Jerry, given a laid back atmosphere.
Deadlists vaguely indicates that this represents all of 6-6-69. However, it seems likely that some music may be missing before Lovelight. The guests are not present during Lovelight, and Garcia is playing on this version. This is perhaps the longest version of Lovelight known to have been played, clocking in at just under 47 minutes.
posted Etree on 04/18/2005
Hi guys-Seems to me "I" was playing guitar on "Beat It On Down the Line" that night. I was walking by the stage when Phil (Lesh) asked me to come up and sit in on guitar. I distinctly remember playing guitar on BIODTL. Things were so crazy that night- but I DO remember playing on BIODTL.
I can back up my statement up because Jerry (Garcia) himself states in Bill Graham's autobiography that "...One night I came to the gig REAL late and there was this OTHER guy playing guitar with the Grateful Dead. This guy from AUM.(my band) He was a pretty good blues guitar player. I thought, 'Geez, Bill is gonna fuckin' kill me,' but he didn't say anything..." (P. 220- 222, I believe). I have a copy of me singing "Love Light" with the Dead- (possibly Pigpen in the mix as well). I don't know if that was the gig two days later, or was at the Monterey Peninsula College gig a few days before...
Man, we were ALL pretty toasted! : ) Anyway- thought my info might help clarify things. Cheers!

Next stop on the virtual tour through the 1969 section of the Vault will be Family Dog at the Great Highway.
These shows are gems waiting for official release and the full Norman.
The Ark is one of those Boston venues that I have been unable to get much real info about. It was on Landsdowne St behind the green monster at Fenway Park. This area was parking garages for the park and Taxi yards where they repaired and parked the cabs overnight.
It is now home to the Boston House of Blues and in the past has been called Boston Boston (a discotheque in the 70's), Metro, Spit, Avalon and Mama Kins.
The last band to play the Ark was Canned Heat in July 1969 and the venue was taken over by Don Law, who ran the Tea Party which was in an old Synagogue on Berklee St many blocks away.
I have never been able to tell when the Ark became the new Boston Tea Party so it's highly likely the 2 1969 GD runs are both in the same physical venue under different names, much like the Carousel> Fillmore West transformation.
Any help on the Ark would be great, here's the recordings and they look sweet, ready for picking for a new box set as to break these up for a Dave's pick would be a crime.

These recordings need to be released, but until then feel free to stream away.
Seeing how i was filibustered on the other thread maybe i'll just take the GD related chat here.
where was I... oh yeah the Greasy Pig virtual box.
I'm looking for help on finding unreleased Pigpen era shows that circulate for my summer listening pleasure. For this project i'm creating a set of notes on the candidate recordings for the virtual box, which are AUDs and SBDs from circulation that can be found on LMA (archive.org).
Over the winter i've managed to get up to the Fillmore West feb 1970 run and today i start on the Fillmore East run, parts of which are released in Bear's Choice and Dicks Pick 4 partially, but i'm going to add them anyway from the complete SBDs to allow the shows to be enjoyed in context and not mashed together with parts missing.
i tried to have a nice lead in to my notes on the TC years, but i was boring some people on the May 77 thread, before taking a time out over here.
excuse me while i talk to myself, there is something about reading it on the web that makes it seem more real.
maybe here will be a nice place to put the notes seeing how TC is on this fine Dave's, in fact it's TC last official run, but more on that later.
Greasy Pig Virtual box with TC notes.
This is the last show in circulation before TC joins the band and allows you to hear what all those october Heartbeat jams were doing for Jerry and Phils jamming, but something is still missing.
there's a big gap in recordings but this is the 1st circulating recording with TC and the difference is obvious. It's unclear if TC and Pigpen had separate organs or shared the same one.
By the time they hit the Avalon in jan 69 and start recording for Live Dead he's found his place in the mix and allows Jerry and Phil to take it to another level, while TC creates foundation that holds it all together.
next up the Ark april 1969.
Beat it spammer.
I have no memory of Ned Lagin being present at this show. Certainly, there were no indications from the band at the time if that were so. This seems to be consistent with his recollection, and his analysis of the tapes of that show referenced in the comments of the NedBase blog.
Re: 6/16 RT2.3 keys
there were several comments here about the keyboards at the 06-16-74 GD concert in des moines. ned has posted a response in the comments section of NedBase http://nedbase.blogspot.com/
Good. So I'll vent.
I think the party is pretty much finished here on the DaP 19 comments pages. It's still OK to stick around here, but the main action of discussion is on the new Dave's Pick Volume 20 pages for a while, then its onto the 30 Days of The Dead & 2017 Dave's Picks Series subscription pages that will appear shortly.
but first.... the windy video!
Taken from 7" reel-to-reel master tapes, Dave's Picks Volume 20 offers up top-notch sound quality and a robustness that was unusual for the tape recordings at this time. As always, it has been mastered to HDCD specs by Jeffrey Norman and it is limited to 16,500 individually numbered copies.
Grab a copy while you can.
(And you’ll also wanna stay tuned because we’ll have breaking news on the Dave’s Picks 2017 subscription real soon!)
Looks like things are slowly getting straightened out. Click on the "Music" button and it looks like the store is back. DP20 is on the page.. even a seaside chat.
The multitude of layers involved in this transition is spell binding.
A partner for production, another for websites, another for shipping, etc.
And it's been a month since all this started. In college, this would have been an example of what not to do.
So a dachshund and a poodle walk into a bar on a hot summer day and...
Senor Muleskinner - I listened to TIGDH this morning also. I cracked up. We are on to something... Dave has a little cat lady in him, but instead of cats its dangerous, predatory sea mammals. His favorite pastime (besides GD and story telling), moose tipping.
12/9/81 - I haven't heard this one either, and read the same reviews. I think I am going to save it so when it arrives its a freshie.
I have to admit.. I am used to hearing the seaside chat where Dave picks apart the show, the recording and the remastering process a bit while dodging and intersecting predatory sea creatures.
This place is a hoot sometimes. Great music and culture.
Never heard it, but a quick listen shows that this is a much better recording than other SBDs from this era. The Jack Straw has horrible reviews on the Archive, but the China-Rider and Stella seem to be standouts. I'll hold off on cheating and wait until this arrives before listening.
Listening to "Today in GD History" from XM from this morning...Dave is on the most fantastic tangent about the animals to be found in Quebec. For the record, he's a fan of both sea otters and river otters. I am thoroughly enjoying this.
Now he's talking about how he competed in moose calling competitions.
Best radio ever.
And this 10/26/69 isn't so bad either.
Okay, I'm really excited for DaP20. Why? First, I grew up in Boulder, so it's kinda cool to have a hometown show.
Second, I've been waiting for an early 80s release for a long time, and I'm glad to see one finally arrive.
Third, (and this is my favorite), one of my best friends--actually, the dude who turned me on to the Dead in high school--was born on December 9, 1981... in Boulder! I'm not sure the time of day he actually arrived, but it's basically correct to say that the Dead were literally playing a couple miles away while he was departing his mother's womb! A couple of years ago, while poking around, I learned that not only did he have a GD birthday show, but it took place in the town of his birth. He was quite chuffed when I let him know--he had no idea about this coincidence!--and now it's being officially released. So, that's pretty cool,if I do say so!
I'm sure there's truth in your fable Jim. A few PSA emails such as "Pardon Our Dust" or "Bear With Us" with a little background info attached would have worked wonders. It's the "Hello is there anybody home?" feeling as a paying customer that rankles.
looks like we're gonna get some 82 next
I'm glad the animal jokes have finished, I mean, how low can you go?
Garcia "Reflections" on purple vinyl out of 3000
and that is one of those that i have not seen soundboard for
this run would make a cool box set , another 3 night banger , the first Greek run from the decade and Grateful Dead reappearance since 10.20.68 (30 trips selection)
Lol speaking of 3 night bangers , here is the start of one , 3 cities in 3 nights ~ the Buckeye state ~ Fall 1972
10.26.72 ~ Cincinnati #^ Playing in the Band
10.27.72 ~ Columbus
10.28.72 ~ Cleveland *****
tapes have some flaws , but what is here is , so sweet
some of the best of the best is Fall 1972
"feeling good was easy lord , when Bobby sang the blues...
Should have been 9/12/81 from the Greek!
Only Jim could lay this out so effortlessly in near-fable form - brilliant!
And yes you're right - this lot didn't get enough credit for our supersleuthingpowers and subsequent penchant for sharing.
Happy Day All!
I reserve the right to revise my comments after I listen to it, but at first glance this is to me a major disappointment. The 81 show from Boxilla with its audience patch was arguably the weakest choice of the 30 shows. If you were going to pick an 80's show, why this one. There is nothing new or fresh on the set list. And 81 does have several good shows, especially in the beginning of the year, that are worthy. For the first time, i am not looking forward to spinning this one. Like the 82 Dick's, this may be the bad one of the Dave's.
I can't get in today, 10/26/16.
I clicked on the shopping cart icon on this version of dead.net, it took me to the Warner Music Store page saying your cart is empty, I clicked on the link to continue shopping, typed in Dave's Picks and was denied access. So they're closed until the official opening.
I was one of the lucky ones who was able to order a copy of Dave's Picks 20 yesterday, I got a confirmation email Grateful Dead Store with my order number and all other details about this order and one from my financial source showing that money was drawn from that account. I just hope that my order and all the other kind folks who were lucky to order DaP 20 yesterday (10/25/16) will have their orders fulfilled, so we don't have to order it again.
I'm patiently waiting for the official "David Lemieux Volume 20 Seaside Chat" video. I find that they're fun to watch, it's great that Dave takes the time to create these videos for us.
Deep respect and I am very grateful.
Your a good man bolo! Ever thought of running for president??
So it looks like Rhino and MusicToday are getting a divorce. After a ten year marriage and nineteen kids, Mr. MusicToday screwed the pooch, messed up the finances and had a disappointing affair with someone called Delivery Agent, Inc. Mrs. Rhino got a hold of the latest credit card statement and was none too happy..
So she and the kids are moving out of their spacious warehouse home in Crozet Va. and are scrambling to find some new digs. All this stress and she is pregnant and expecting to deliver Dave's Picks #20 any day now.
Part of the divorce requires they leave behind a lot of the technology MusicToday built for them over the last ten years including some of the website he build for her and the sales, warehousing and distribution center in Crozet Va. It looks like the sales, credit card piece is the first addition to her new digs and they put up a new shopping cart portal that leads to their new home at Warner Music Emporium.
They added this search function in the shopping cart, and some crafty head decided to search for Dave's Picks and found the new, still under construction Dave's Picks 20 suite (we are pretty crafty, a lot smarter than people ever gave us credit for). This crafty head posted the link to the new suite and we all got to take a peeksy, that is until Father Warner Music saw what was going on and shut the whole thing down. (grumpy grandpa)
So the long and short of it is, they are having some trouble scrambling to build sales and delivery infrastructure going forward that MusicToday used to provide, they are behind a bit and we got a sneak peek at the new Dave's Picks.. just an accidental glimpse, but they weren't ready for us, kicked us out and locked the door behind us.
12/9/81 is being prepped for delivery.
What's going on? I can't get into my account as Warner seem to have hijacked it. I've got a DP subscription, but haven't had any word/email about DaP20 nor can I find out what it is. Where did you guys find out? I'm over 3,000 miles away from NY city and a half a world away from California, so need the tender love of fellow Deadheads. HELP!
Worst product roll out since the "New Coke." Something just ain't right.
Is the new Dave's Picks
Hey, at least the pressure of trying to go 82-0 is off!
I take it you didn't watch the Warriors game.
Rhino is part of the Warner family.
And, no, I have no reason to be ticked off about anything. The kids are in love and employed, I'm still breathing, and one MLB fan base is going to exorcize decades of frustration. It's all good!
Those of you offended by the animal jokes should probably avoid watching the documentary called Zoo. Just sayin'.
farm reference isn't about a show location.
it refers to some, uh...tacky jokes from earlier today and a true story about a clueless shlub from Enumclaw WA.
listen to my story 'bout a man named Ken
liked to see the horses' pen
then one day he was playin' in the barn
wound-ed up dead
it's a really awkward yarn
summarizes them nicely.
why did I have to grow up a cubs fan?
here's the fruit...here's the payoff...almost there...PSYCH!
all these years later and I still let it get to me.
more animals imagery...hmm.
How's that Fenway Dead & Co print looking on the wall?
Need to frame a bunch - got a couple of Ratdog birthday show prints - a Mardi Gras show from the 90's in San Fran and one from a couple of years ago at HOB (50th) plus the Fenway print.
Hoping the new arrangement will offer a minibox for the wife to get me for Xmas ;)
Wow Contreras should of legged out his "home run", he would've had a triple - I bet ya Charlie Hustle would've legged it out...
Hoping for a 7 game series - need a nice distraction until DaP20 arrives...
Not sure who to root for
Lester, Ross and Theo
Napoli, Miller, Crisp and Tito
Did not like how the Sox brAss rode Francona out of town on a rail, so leaning for Tito and the Tribe.
....that tptb were prepping to fire up the large hadron collider with this confusion, but who am I to say. Today's events show that Rhino is out of the picture, and Warner has stepped in. Unless I read it wrong....
....Cubs have the bases loaded no outs in the 7th. I read that right.
Comments from "Purple Gel" on the archive with the most listens:
"This is really a great show, and I think the loudest Dead show I ever saw, and from start to end one of the most powerful and raw show I ever witnessed. The first set is excellent (except for the band totally losing its way during Jack Straw in what I think is the worst meltdown I ever witnessed). The Cold Rain is powerful and appropriate for a bitterly cold night outside, The Bird Song is one of my favorites and I agree that The LLR, not usually my favorite song, is one of the best ever, with Jerry playing the sweetest and most appropriate rainfall licks throughout the final minutes. The China Cat > Rider, however is absolutely smoking! There is a great moment during in the second half of the jam between verses in Rider, where Phil whips out some powerful and unique licks, Jerry heard it, smiled, turned to Phil and turned up the energy in his licks, all the while rocking to and fro, as Bobby started his verse, Jerry plays this little lick between "Sun Gonna Shine" and "In My Back Dorr" that just floors me!!. The second set was great as well, A very nice Scarlet > Fire, an inspired Estimated Prophet > He's Gone and sweet Other One> Stella."
Pretty nice write up - was a little perplexed initially by other posters in the archive link that was originally posted and then read all the other posts for the different copies of this show.
Can't wait for the video Dave.
Bolo's gotta be pissed....
Nice going Dave, I don't know the show but I know the sound. Spring and Fall '81 shows were high energy, particularly great first sets and occasional 2nd set surprises. I'm sure I will love it. Thanks!!
I was able to navigate through the hoops and order successfully (I think). I did get a confirmation email as well
