Dave's Picks Volume 26: Albuquerque Civic Auditorium, NM 11/17/71 - SOLD OUT
The unexpected return of the masters of the Grateful Dead's triumphant show at the Albuquerque Civic Auditorium, November 17, 1971, yields great rewards. The Dead came in HOT for their first New Mexico show. Aided by clarity and precision and abetted by confidence and focus, they finessed old standards with definitive takes. With Keith now blending in seamlessly on keys, the first set offered up a triple shot of electric Blues, an exceptional "You Win Again," and a stellar "One More Saturday Night" to wrap things up. And the second set, well, it might just be unlike any you've ever heard. Archivist David Lemieux urges you to turn it up and do it loudly. We won't dare spoil all the surprises, but pay special attention to the rippin' "Sugar Magnolia," the aggressively monstrous "The Other One," and the highly-danceable "Not Fade>GDTRFB>Not Fade." Rounding out the 3CDs, you'll find selections from Pigpen's return tour at Ann Arbor, MI, 12/14/71. Subscribers will get nearly all of the complete show as this year's bonus disc.

Wife, kids and I have to move out of our house at some point this summer after 8 years. The owner no longer wishes to hang onto it and is selling it and we don't know how soon, etc but aside from having to uproot our garden *I am in Colorado, not just veggies out there* I don't know what our god damned new address is going to be! Makes it a royal pain when wanting to place an order. Might just have to have it shipped to the in-laws house.
Has anyone else gone rooting through their tapes to see if they have any of these shows? I know I have digital sbd files of ALL of them but....but.....official releases! Remastered sound!!! LINER NOTES!!!
Only ordering the 3 disc set as I stated earlier and a brother from the board has already reached out guaranteeing me the rest of the officially released box. We are all terribly good at sharing things and anyone who has dealt with me on a personal level from this board can vouch for my willingness to share any and all sound that I hang on to. Gotta love our community.
Hoping to meet up with some of you in Albuquerque or Boulder this summer for the Dead and Company gigs as well as the August Jerry Garcia Birthday Band gigs in Vail. Anyone who made it to last year's Red Rocks birthday bash for Jerry's 75th knows not to miss that one. PM me if interested!
Can you believe I'm still receiving early bird e-mails from this year's DAP subscription? Why?
I have extra sealed copy looking to sell for my cost plus shipping.
Just ordered new box.
Hey now Dead freaks,
I have 4 Dead and Co. tickets for sale if anybody wants them. I bought them earlier in the year thinking that I would have more travel time this summer, but sadly it's not working out. They are are field GA seats with hard copy 3D Souvenir tickets. I will mail the tickets to you at my expense, and I am only trying to get my money back that I spent. Below is copy of my receipt from Ticket Bastard.....$724.75 total.
Please PM me if you are interested! Thanks in advance.....CaseyJanes

I guess now we can start complaining that online ordering has gotten tooooooo easy – before I knew it, I'd pulled the trigger on the box, the LPs, the 3CD set AND the t-shirt. Just too smoooooth. What was I thinking?
Yes, it was very easy for me to order, too. Last time I had to go into town to use the librarys computer-this time I could order from home. Fantastic looking release, too!
Man this box set dropped faster than ...than....than.... something fast. Like, yesterday it was just a glimmer in the eye and today its for reals. Looks nasty good.
Just ordered, how easy was that? it must be the quickest order that I have ever encountered on a website, nothing left to do but, Smile Smile Smile.
Ordering was as smooth as silk - easiest ordering for a new release I've ever had by far on dead net. Thanks folks for getting that all ironed out!
Super super excited about this box! Good golly are we lucky!
Thank you Dave!!!!
Its up everyone good luck
Are both up for pre-order jsut booked mine now!
Sounds like a good plan Jim.
Make it happen Dave.
I'm right there with you..
It makes sense on a lot of levels.. and I believe it's the first geographic centric box set that spans time and sets a precedent for potential Greek Boxes, MSG Boxes, Frost Boxes, Fox Boxes, BCT boxes etc.
Anyway.. they are some great shows here. I enjoyed the latest string of Dave's Picks from 73/74. This should be a step above.
"The sound of tireless voices is the price we pay for the right to hear the music of our own opinions."
I found that looking for this:
(D)uring one of his presidential campaigns a woman called out to him: "Governor, you have the vote of every thinking person!". He (supposedly) responded "That's not enough, madam, we need a majority!"
A bunch of quotes from this major figure in Mid-20th Century American politics can be found at https://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Adlai_Stevenson .
Lots of Will Rodgers-esque humor and some lofty ideals pithily stated. Worth a read, I think.
"Unreason and anti-intellectualism abominate thought. Thinking implies disagreement; and disagreement implies nonconformity; and nonconformity implies heresy; and heresy implies disloyalty—so, obviously, thinking must be stopped. But shouting is not a substitute for thinking and reason is not the subversion but the salvation of freedom."
If this is true, than I am all in! There is some serious jamming throughout those shows!
Someone below mentioned that the set will contain one Dark Star and two The Other Ones. By my calculations, and if the shows are indeed 6/22 and 6/24/73 and 5/17, 5/19, and 5/21/74, then I only count one The Other One. However, I do see that we would be getting three, count em' THREE, Money Money's! That is something! (I just hope that doesn't mean that the set will cost 3 x's the Money Money it should...)
More leaks than the White House here in DeadLand :)
EDIT: Ah, I see I forgot 6/26/73 - There is the other The Other One :)
I saw Wavy in the shoe and boot section of REI in Berkeley once.
But alas, he had to go away empty handed, because they were all out of clown shoes.
People who are smart get into politics, but I would say that the vast majority of them are lacking any kind of moral compass and have severely underdeveloped understandings of ethical quandaries. I'd blame it on the parents.
I met Wavy a number of times at festivals on the East Coast (always Gathering of the Vibes as he was MC) and even got to spend some time with his pet trout that is always properly collared and leashed for public spaces.
Very kind man and always willing to chat for awhile, even think I ran into him at the Furthur show in Golden Gate Park a few years back, but those memories are definitely mostly composed out of the psychedelic ether.
I had the good fortune to meet Wavy Gravy at a book signing (one afternoon long ago...one _evening_, actually.)
ah, politics, a topic everyone loves.
Politics as a career doesn't seem to appeal to people who are too smart. Unfortunately.
By trying to spread enlightenment to both leaders through FW69, Eur72, SSDD, and GSTL.
Why don't you go run for President. Show us all how smart you are.
GD: mind-melting good
....at least it was solid. KINDA LIKE THAT LEAKED BOX ANNOUNCEMENT DONCHAKNOW!!
yeah.... I think i'm gonna go play with vguy's dogs too.
....I'm going to go play with my dog(s).
Trump should have handed Kim copies of FW69, Eur72, SSDD, and GSTL; and then told him to spend the next 120 days listening to them, and then they would meet again to hold Furthur talks.
It would serve Trump well to listen to those shows too.
LOL. Well played.
I've been trying to catch up for a while on the thread and was going to post my last three listens, but then I saw the news about Doc, so I sent him an email instead.
But back to my last three listens:
Psyched for some more 73 and my quest for the ultimate Here Comes Sunshine...
Yeah, the era where Frank sang with his head down, chin buried in his chest....
Yet another late era Sinatra box set. Predictable set lists, shorter jams, and God knows who's on keyboard; we need a summer '52 box.
Please explain the Muppets SE7EN spoof.
What is the connection to the potential new Box?
I say ‘potential’ since there has yet to be an official, internet-crashing announcement.
1st - box looks great, sound should be a very nice improvement over what I have in stock. Two of the six dates I seem to have decent audience, the other 4, okay. Looking forward. A quick hit of 6/26/73 Here Comes Sunshine had Phil sounding very up front.
The quick plug - just got in mail today a Frank Sinatra release. The family/foundation released 3 live shows from 66, 74 & 87. Nicely recorded, classic Frank. Was only 30 bucks.
Would be great if this box set is announced this week, being so close to Father's Day could work in my favor.
Where do I pay?
....the 5.19.74 Portland China -> Rider is "smmmmmokin!"
just anticipating complaints about the new box.
but I reeeeeeally don't know how anyone could complain about it _at all_.
I'll drive UberEats for the rest of my days to get the extra $$$ to pay for it.
"Fetch hither the new release, my good Mr. Dave L."
I just hope any box set has the option to purchase the download. My earthly burden is too heavy as it is.
Was just listening to 8/6/74 today.
Here is one of them http://www.gratefulseconds.com/2017/07/not-sleepless-in-seattle-uw-stude...
saw it on amazon.com and it just kinda smells like spincd.com shit to me.
Well the key to this box will be whether they have the sbd to fill in the gap in the 6/22/73 jam.
I can't wait! This set is going to be nothing short of a masterpiece :)
I, for one, find the new box set to be delightful news. Summer 1973 has yet to be represented on a single Dick's or Dave's, and this is a prime era that is in the highest possible demand. We all know about 6-22-73, but those other '73 shows are JUST AS GOOD. And, of course, one cannot say enough about the big jam on 5-19-74 (so I won't try!). I look forward to pre-ordering it once it becomes available. I may just purchase a second copy to show TBTB my undying gratitude and support.
Dave has really outdone himself this time.
Thankfully, the rumors of an early 80s set were unfounded (the tape quality just ain't there, man!).
It's probably a bit too early for a requests for 2019, but if you're listening Dave, I'd love a June 1976 set (or Fall '72!). Ah, listen to me, you know what you're doing!
Firing up Dave's Picks 21 in anticipation of this all-timer of a box!
Since the big news has leaked, any chance you can let us know when the announcement/onsale will happen?
Being sure to get a copy is a big issue for anyone that's milling about in the comments section of a sold out item on a monday afternoon...
I am currently 2000 feet below ground under a massive granite outcropping that is part of Cheyenne Mountain here in Colorado (i.e., NORAD).
Having entered this enormous lead-lined chamber through 2 sets of 25-ton blast doors, I am now firing up the Acme® 2000 Random Number Generator. It's powered by a 1968 1.5 HP Briggs and Stratton lawnmower engine to make it immune to any nuclear and/or EMP attacks.
Pulling the cord now...and again...and again...come on, you m$&h%#$7*@r, start! Ahh, there it is. A small cloud of pungent, unburned hydrocarbons and we're ready to go.
Entering the parameters now. And the winner is...(Billy drumroll)...(Mickey pounding The Beast)...
Congrats! Obviously, this morning's leak has rendered this whole music drop thing I had planned moot and largely pointless, but I'll still send Onthebussince77 a few goodies.
Carry on and get your credit card limits in order!
