Grateful Dead

Dave's Picks Volume 11: Century II Convention Hall, Wichita, KS (11/17/72) - SOLD OUT

sku: GRA9900107


Jack Straw may have been from Wichita but the Grateful Dead only played there once and what a show it was! Whether the band knew they would only have one shot to show the "Doo-dah" city what they were all about, we just don't know but they sure did nail it. Dick's Picks producer Dick Latvala initially considered this one for release and with a single listen, you'll know why. From the epic 90-minute 16-song first set to super tight ditties from the massively popular Workingman's Dead and American Beauty albums and newly minted Europe '72 classics like "He's Gone," "Brown-Eyed Women," and "China Cat Sunflower>I Know You Rider," you're bound to agree. Lest we forget to mention the great sounding tapes and excellent acoustics at the Century II Convention Hall. (Oh, and as a little bonus, we've thrown in the best of the bunch from Oklahoma City 11/15/72!)

Mastered in HDCD from the original soundboard recordings produced by Owsley Stanley, with fresh artwork from Tony Millionaire (and his little dog too), and liner notes from original handbill artist and then first-time Grateful Dead concert attendee Gary Houston, this sonic adventure is one to cross off the old bucket list.

Pre-order it here while you can!

Home.

Riverbend. Klipsch. Wrigley. Wrigley. Klipsch - yep...figuring it was (essentially) en route home to SE KY anyway, and considering I'd really enjoyed DeadCo at the venue just 9 days earlier, I jumped when offered a Phish ticket @ face value for 6/26

Now all I can think about is Lockn (8/25-28) and Denver (9/2-4), which should hold me for a bit.

Summation: Tie-dyed hitchhikers; hay bale beds; rural Indiana home brew; red state medievalry; bottle rocket dodgeball; communing with cows; general hooliganism; a new tattoo; pliable state troopers; and a practical lesson in Balance of Power and Deterrence Theories courtesy Glock.

Also - and thankfully, given the stress of all that hot mess - I didn't miss a pool, weight, or road workout the entire trip by virtue of the Fishers Branch YMCA, country roads, and the Downtown Hilton's Athletic Club ('cause I knew y'all were concerned...)

By the way, ICELAND?! Heck yeah! Hail strákarnir okkar!

Over on SHF, Jamie Howarth, owner of Plangent Processes, responded to complimentary speculation regarding the production aspect of RoxBox's remarkable sound:

"Somebody has good ears. The difference is that ironically these are even *more* digital than before. Hinted at during 30T but now fully in play is a one stage head preamp direct to the A/D. Then the de-emphasis EQ (NagraMaster for 15IPS, NAB for 7.5) is done digitally. This not only enables an extremely tight curve but also phase compensation for the Record Cal cards and the playback EQ, so that for the first time something closely approximating a square wave can be passed from the mics through tape to the listeners D/A. Sounds more real. Is more real. Glad you noticed."

Messi. Substitute. Hat trick.

Kinda like Jordan beating a high school team 1-on-5 (well, 4 actually, as Los Canaleros were short (no pun intended, but...) for quite a while). EURO opener tomorrow. 90K security personnel? Can you imagine the industry profit margin for private contractors in the current climate? Though I imagine nothing in the history of capitalism begins to rival the take by Blackwater during Iraq.

Tiring week, as I'm reaching a peak in the training cycle...18 miles scheduled for tomorrow's long run, but MagnaBall '15 arrived today, so I'm loading that 8/22, 4 set monster to the iPod. Remarkable how Phish succeeds in remaining physically and creatively robust - if not stellar with respect to artistic output - over 3+ decades where the Dead began staggering after just 15. Yet, Trey&Co. have judiciously taken breaks and addressed substance abuse issues. Incidentally, how capital is nugs.net? And bless Pearl Jam and Phish for allowing me to build a library based on personal exploration, preference, and selection./peace, K

Countdown to France

Enthusiasm for Copa America is proving problematic, especially in Messi's absence and with our traditionally erratic - at times almost capricious - play. Glad to see we can handle a team that draws from a population pool just over half the size of Long Island this evening.

However, after a mindboggling BPL (just PL next year!) season, not to mention decent US television coverage of the Bundesliga and Primera Division, I am desperately awaiting opening of the Euro this Friday; really hoping Vardy and Kane draw the Lion's (!) share of time up front for England.

RAH is an electric steroid injection - and not just when plugged in; moreover, you're right, The Hawks'/Band's contribution was an integral component to the show's alchemy. Incidentally, do you lament Helm's early departure? I know that Jones is ferocious during that RAH electric set, but...

As an aside, I've seen a DVD release of Dylan's (perhaps only partial) performances at the 63-65 Newport Folk Fests, but has there really never been an audio-only release? I don't do music on video very well; yet, I'd be really intrigued to hear those seminal electric trax from 65.

Tired. Bedtime. 0445 comes early en route to a predawn chlorine breakfast...

Ah, that England Dan. When I was young, and mom carted me around while running her errands, that song was in heavy AM radio rotation for a season or two. I thought he was singing "I'm not talkin bout the live in", because in our Waspy/Quakerish Ford-era upstate burg, 'living in sin' was still frowned upon, so that is what the lyric sounded like.

I have another very embarrassing misinterpretation of a Hot Chocolate line from 'You Sexy Thing'....to my nine-year-old ears, "where ya from" sounded like "wear your bra"!!!

Grammar-wise, do you prefer "Everton scores" or "Everton score"? I wish American soccer announcers would try using the Queen's just for one tournament. It might catch on. Like this Grateful Dead thing.

Peace.

Peaks; an afterthought

Your contiguous employment of the word "on", as both a prepositional adverb and preposition, respectively, put me in my mind of some diabolical songwriting - by the nefarious Parker McGee - which pleads, "I'm not talkin' 'bout movin' in...".

I refused to concede my inability to interpret this line aurally - and thus look it up online - until last year, upon which, discovering the malicious ploy of "movin' in", I yelled to heavens....

At least I no longer wake in a cold sweat at 3 a.m. facing this seemingly intractable idiomatic mystery.

Intrigued by its structural complexity and avant-garde thematic transitions, I've been doing a bit of reading on LVB's 3rd Symph., to include the relatively renowned assessments of Schonberg and Berlioz, as there's such intrigue surrounding everything from the title to critical reception.

And, while I've a trove of recordings dating from the 1950s forward, I suspect that optimal understanding of the composer's artistic intent can be achieved only by hearing the piece performed under his hand.

To that end, I wonder if a like-minded Head could hook me up with a crispy AUD of the 4/7/05 Vienna debut; there are rumours of a clarion, first row balcony recording made on a smuggled Nak...(also heard the lot scene offered some mean veggie Toad-in-the-holes and tie-dyed robes a l'Anglaise)...

Edit: Hi wharftx & 1Man - thx for the shout outs! :)

Perils of the Grid

I've read that the behaviour of ants is dictated by a constantly revised neurochemical playbook and, while a paradigm of continuous communication may be the ticket to survival for an organism whose individuality has been colonized, human consciousness is not fodder for streaming, rather it's raw material for cognitive gestation, the process by which meaningful ideas are conceived, the kind that eventually merit expression through art, conversation, or action.

My lack of Twitter account, cell phone, and Facebook page isn't a contrarian effort to withdraw, but to ensure my life is dictated by deliberation rather than the intravenous flow of constant connectivity. My friends, who like most everyone under 60 (even my father has manifested symptoms of addiction to his iphone (seriously)), are genetically attached to a wireless device and slaves to an unceasing stream of news, market updates, email, sports' scores, celebrity rebuttals, and the minute-by-minute minutiae of the lives of others.

Incidentally, I just read that Phish played a monster 14-song, double encore the other night at Air Canada in Toronto ;)

Mercy, but I love the BPL...West Ham over United!

First, Leicester ranks the greatest story in sports' history and though the top positions are secured, there's still room for some drama in the 4-7 slots! Go Cherries! Could United really be considering a blood oath with The Devil next year? Gotta admit though, Jose M is the single most amusing interview in all sports - especially after a loss. Good looking, too! :) peace, K

I do believe our brother 11/17 needs a family reunion of sorts. The seven remaining members from the family November '72, are aunt and uncle 11/12 & 13 from KC, Ks., cousin 11/14, from OK City, the one who hasn't been home since the day he was born, grandpa 11/19, from Houston, Tx., and cousins 11/22, 11/24 & 11/26, from Austin, Dallas & San Antonio, Tx. Oh, and did you know it'd be 'bout 44 years since everyone last got together? Ooooeee! Better make it sooner than later - the whole fam damily needs to meet up!

Get IN this box!

I, too, suffered the consequences

of delusional thinking. About as fit as I could be from year-round training for distance runs, I thought (my first mistake!) I'd do the MS 150. Another mistake was mounting an off-road bike. I thought the first half was pretty cool, but then I began to grow grumpy, and then towards the end was cursing God and man. I, needless to say, did not even attempt the following day's 75. Some skills just don't transfer.

OK, y'all - it's that time again! The anny of disc III from the Eleven kicks off the officially released trio from November, '72.

I wonder what Dave has in mind for an 18 to 20-disc box set that he alluded to at his seaside subscription monologue?

Holy smokes! Clay, Douglas, now Holm...what a headline to wake to; and I paid the fight little heed thinking it perfunctory to a kozmically preordained conclusion. I've a few acquaintances who participate in local MMA (women's) - I was surprised to find out how prevalent amateur matches are throughout the country - and, on an ill-considered whim last year, expressed the desire to spar, having considered myself fairly fit with the biking/swimming/running. Bad idea. Especially if you've never been hit in the face; like me. Sometimes it's better to labour under the narcotic sway of dreamy misperception than actually test your limits.../K

@Kate

Regarding your indecision about ordering 30 Trips.. I, too, had a slump in Dead listening for a few years. During this time I didn't keep tabs on this site. As a result, I missed out on several boxes I would've loved, as well as the first three years of Dave's Picks. So, I would recommend you still purchase such things, especially since they are limited. You may not prioritize listening to them immediately, but who knows? In a year or so you may wish you had them to listen to.

Regarding non-dead listening... I am pretty deeply into live Dead right now. On the rare occasion I listen to something different, it will probably be Pink Floyd, Traffic, Van Morrison or Peter Gabriel. Also, another new/old album I discovered recently is Love - Forever Changes. It's a pretty great album.

Confession

I've been terribly neglectful of my duties as an Eleven forumite. Yet, to recent extent, at least, I plead extenuating meteorological circumstance, your Honor. Took off Friday for the Grand Strand with the promise of 4 days (next week, M-Th) of golf, clubbin', and time-with-friends-past once the 'finger' of moisture propagated by Jaoquin had moved from the area by Sunday night - or so said forecasts at that time.

Well, arrived around 1530 Friday, went out to eat shortly thereafter, then attempted a return to our condo in cherry grove (n. myrtle beach) only to find complete blockage in all directions by the 5-0. Bucked the flock's trend, 4-wheeled around the traffic cones and yellow tape, and got confronted by the po-po who graciously told me he'd turn his back while I attempted to pass in 3-feet of flood waters (that'd risen in just the 2 hours since I arrived!). Of course, the 4-Runner had no problems, but I was nervous...got to the pad, turned on the Weather Channel & heard terms like "historic"/"epic" rainfall as well as another 12-18" by Sun. evening...then figured if authorities had blocked off all access to our area after just a quick 3-4 inches, then another foot+ would be catastrophic. So, grabbed my gear, and said c-ya to my chums while beating it the heck outta Myrtle Beach. Returned home to KY late this A.M. (Sat.) after stopping around midnight and spending the night in Spartanburg - sorry to miss a week of vacation, but sure as heck happy to be 650 miles north-northwest from Dante's 8th flooded plain of hell along the South Carolina coast.

Here's a picture: Upon arrival, I parked centrally under the large condo bldg. about 20 yards (2 first downs!) in either direction from the building's edges; yet, due to high winds and drenching rains, I was soaked in under 30 seconds after exiting my vehicle. Unreal. I can't even imagine exposure to actual hurricane conditions.

Well, heck, none of this has anything to do with recent listening trends or acknowledgement of y'all's posts, but hopefully I'll return to all that shortly./peace, K

non-Dead listening

Well, it's Fall, and every Fall I load up my iPod with music from the upcoming Fall arts season. At least, with the upcoming music I am unfamiliar with. This fall in southern California has mostly conservative fare. But there is some interesting unfamiliar stuff. I've been listening a lot to Glazunov's "Raymonda", which I'll see the Mariinsky Orchestra/ballet do tonight in Costa Mesa. I'm not a huge ballet guy, but I saw the Mariinsky do "Swan Lake" a few years ago and it was unforgettably great. Ballet is really something else when there is a great orchestra in the pit. It took a few listens for me to warm up to the "Raymonda" music but I am starting to dig it. Some fine music there. Also listening to Prokofiev's "Cinderella" which I'll see the Mariinsky do in LA in a couple weeks. And Bellini's "Norma" by the LAO in November. I've always wanted to see that one. I have a soft spot for old-fashioned 19th century stuff. Also, Haydn's "Mass in Time of War", which Andras Schiff will conduct at the LAPhil next month. He will conclude the evening with a post-concert recital of Schubert songs. I was able to download the entire recital program into a playlist- love the digital age! Not much new music except "Mysterien" by Louis Andriessen, which Dudamel will conduct in October. I'm not sure what to make of that music, except I know it will sound great in Disney Hall.

I love Fall, and the start of the arts season! Sadly, Southern California really has no cool weather, seasons,or fall colors. I envy all you folks that really get to experience seasons!

The flying story is disturbing. I remember my first commercial flights, round-trips DC to Orlando, when I was 15. They were perfectly routine flights but they scared the living shit out of me and I vowed to never fly again. I stuck to that for 15 years before finally snapping out of it. Thank heaven for the airport bars. Now I enjoy flying. It's like a game - how toasted can I get before the flight without arousing suspicion?

Reduced to a putting motion - LLLLLOL ...

followed by a quick Titleist tweeze and a spoiled walk to the club house. Last time I played I was hitting my woods really well, I, however, was having difficulty getting out of them ...

I had a flashback when you mentioned the reconning of your route(s). It was the first trip I made to San Francisco to do a 1/2 and the plane after takeoff headed east for a spell and began to trace the Missouri river before coming about. I saw one of my then current rave routes, the Katie Trail (I know, not Kate), that runs along side and I think I came at the person next to me, "Look, it's the Katie Trail - I run there - but it's going to me so much funner in San Francisco!!!". Oh, to be eight-years-old again.

Non-Dead listening has included Mozart mornings for the past month or so - all manner of chamber works, Uchida piano sonatas and concertos and presently Trevor Pinnock symphonies. Since resuming duties teaching my darling clientesses, Cuban son all day - Afro-Cuban All-stars, Buena Vista Social Club and off-shoots, Cachao, etc.; jazz at home with recently transferred from LP to CD reggae - King Tubbys, Prince Jammy, Scientist, Revolutionaries, Mighty Diamonds, Cornell Campbell, Johnny Clarke, with more to come, as chasers. And '72 in the car (had to get that in).

Speaking of which, time for a refill and trip to my beloved Castlewood State Park for some peaceful miles under blissful conditions. Thank you, most high, for this day off. Paz.

Virginity Pledge

Out on the 30 Trips' thread I expressed my commitment to resisting an early go at the box via streaming and it's been an easy vow to honor in as much as I've not yet been provided access. CS says the "system" will be loading the coveted link to accounts throughout the weekend. Moreover, I suspect if there's any sort of queue, then I'm Dead last based on my hicklety-ficklety order/reorder shenanigans.

After my a.m. run with puppy through the foothills, I went out and shot 9 on a nearly empty course - not that my pitiful game benefited from any distraction caused by the lack of traffic. There are days, like today, when I'm sufficiently bereft of control during my swing that increased shortening of the arc to compensate almost reduces it to a putting motion. Honestly, at that point I should just plug in the ipod, sheath the clubs, and finish the round as a nice walk!

A fellow attorney has been hounding me about a trip in his ultralight plane the past couple years, and this afternoon was my reckoning. Really quite beautiful to fly the mountains, especially reconning my favourite running trail along a ridgeline from up high. However, it'll never happen again. About halfway through, I observed several wires that ran from the pilot's seat (immediately in front of me), past me along the inside of the plane, and then out of sight. I noticed that they moved when the plane changed altitude or direction, at which point I realized they connected a hand lever to our wing flaps and rudder (if that's even what at tail flap is called on a plane). I don't know what I expected in this otherwise small aluminum canister with an engine that sounds like my push mower, but with regard to flight controls, it was certainly more than this! So, ultralight flight now joins motorcycling and eating raw oysters as risky business I don't feel compelled to engage again.

I thought I could maneuver back into music, but I'm tar'd and on the cusp of my 4th straight 60 hour work week, so I'll be heading to bed. Curious to know what non-Dead you're listening to, though I realize a couple are immersed in the 30 streams from reading reviews out on the big board./peace and goodnight, K
