"We were in the Pacific Northwest...between somewhere in Washington and some other where in Oregon. The road took us to the lip on a ridge, from where we could see around us for many miles in all directions … It was breathtaking to behold, but as we watched, we had a firm realization that we were witnessing something even more beautiful than our eyes could ever take in … Life causes life. Heaven and Earth dance in this way endlessly, and their child is the forest. And so there we were, epiphanously watching that grandest and most glorious dance of life—of which we are just a tiny part—awed by a magnificence without beginning, without end..."

Bob Weir, “Sell Headwaters—Everyone Wins,” San Francisco Chronicle

The Pacific Northwest offers up a rich feast of land, sky, and water. It is ripe with influences, abundant with symbols, deep and spirited. It should, therefore, come as no surprise that the Grateful Dead played some of their most inspired shows on these fertile grounds. It does, however, sometimes take a breath for the elements to re-align years later. It seems for us, they finally have and we are able to present not just a glimpse of the band's extraordinary exploratory tour through the region, but a two-tour bounty as the PACIFIC NORTHWEST ’73-’74: THE COMPLETE RECORDINGS.

For PACIFIC NORTHWEST ’73-’74: THE COMPLETE RECORDINGS, we've paired two short runs made up of six previously unreleased shows - P.N.E. Coliseum, Vancouver, B.C. (6/22/73); Portland Memorial Coliseum, Portland, OR (6/24/73); Seattle Center Arena, Seattle, WA (6/26/73); P.N.E. Coliseum, Vancouver, Canada (5/17/74); Portland Memorial Coliseum, Portland, OR (5/19/74); and Hec Edmundson Pavilion, University of Washington, Seattle, WA (5/21/74). Each show has been mastered in HDCD from the original master tapes by Jeffrey Norman at Mockingbird Mastering. The transfers from the masters were transferred and restored by Plangent Processes, further ensuring that this is the best, most authentic that these shows have ever sounded.

PACIFIC NORTHWEST ’73-’74: THE COMPLETE RECORDINGS comes in an ornate box created by Canada’s preeminent First Nations artist Roy Henry Vickers (more on this tremendous artist soon). To complement the music, the set also includes a 64-page book with an in-depth essay by Grateful Dead scholar Nicholas G. Meriwether and photos by Richie Pechner.

Due September 7th, this release is limited to 15,000 individually numbered copies and available exclusively from dead.net. You'll want to grab a copy while you can and sit back, relax, and enjoy all the exclusive content we'll be rolling out over the next few weeks.

Looking for something a little more byte-sized? The collection will also be available for HD digital download in FLAC and ALAC, exclusively at dead.net, on release day. You can pre-order it now too.

Get it while you can.

More on Plangent

Had some time to dig around for the articles I mentioned this morning. The list is from an unconfirmed source on the Steve Hoffman site. By unconfirmed, I mean I don't know where he got it or if it's 100% accurate. I know for sure E72 Complete, Winterland 1973, and both May 1977 box sets. The reason I excluded Winterland '73 from my "examples" of the quality benefits Plangent provides, is because I also recall it was recorded on some kind of wider, faster super-tape than most Grateful Dead two-tracks, so that's two significant a variable to ignore if one is interested in an apples to apples comparison of with / without Plangent. I think the best comparison is yet to come, with the Pacific NW Box set. Will it sound better than DaP 21? (which is, in my opinion, the best sounding UN-Plangented two-track from 1973).

Edit: With regard to the list of releases that were Plangented, The July 1978 Box set was spoken about on the Steve Hoffman Forum as though it was, but I don't see Plangent mentioned anywhere on the dead.net page where it's up for sale. Both May 1977 sale pages mention Plangent. I have to assume then that July 1978 was not, unless someone has the CD case in front of them and tell us otherwise.

Spinning the hits. She's sensational. How good it is to live in an age of recording. May she rest in peace. She sure delivered the goods.

Caught her live in 1991 in Gary, Indiana, on a hot summer night in a modest-sized, sweltering theater. Word was, they wouldn't use air conditioning, which the theater had, because she said it would mess with her voice. Everyone looked at each other like, "Whatever the Queen wants is fine with me." She rocked the joint.

train movies

Someone mentioned movies with trains. Instantly I thought of "Silver Streak". That was one of the very first movies I saw with a friend without any parents. We loved it! I think we saw it 3 times and we knew all the big scenes. It was 1976 so we were about 11. We didn't know what to make of the intimate scenes with Jill Clayburgh and Gene Wilder. A man and a woman alone, acting goofy, with odd music. Their encounters seemed very mysterious, but somehow important.
I suppose that movie planted the seeds for my lifelong love of train travel.

I'm looking forward to seeing the new Branagh "Murder on the Orient Express". Has anyone seen it? (please no spoilers, I haven't seen the original!)

Trains

Trains stir the imagination of places to go, places you've been. The power, the sound.

TCM has a short they run about the train in movies and lord knows they are the subject of many a photo/painting/puzzles. More than a few movies about trains.

Deadheads are by nature a wanderlust group, so I understand the connection. Musician have always had the connection, the timing of the steam, the clack of the tracks.

Re: Navin R. Johnson

Ha.. classic.

I became exactly that happy the day my number quit appearing in the phone book. Now it appears only the really poor volunteer fire departments, cancer charities, disabled cops & vets (apparently without insurance) and credit card companies with much better rates than I currently have can access my phone records. Joy.

Edit: A preemptive comment on disabled civil servants, hats off.. you have my support. I just don't trust telemarketers that somehow get my phone number can call me fifteen times a year. Most times very little money trickles down to the folks that need it and executives and shell companies gobble what they can first. No attempt on my part to be unkind.. I feel my $50 to archive.org each year is well spent.

It was an awful awful joke. Vguy I am not. I am, however, familiar with Pete, The Who, and protagonist Jimmy's story, and I did get quite a chuckle out of it once I'd read what I'd written. I guess that either makes me a narcissist or the funniest guy in the room.

Yup, the A Train is real

Night Train and Crazy Train were the ones I meant as metaphorical. I probably put that sentence in the wrong spot, after the things it was referring to. Should have led with that.

Tom Waits Downtown Train is really about stalking someone at a subway stop too.

King of the Road is the old timey song I was trying to think of. Lots of train references.

Not metaphorical, real

The title refers to the then-new A subway service that runs through New York City, going at that time from eastern Brooklyn, on the Fulton Street Line opened in 1936, up into Harlem and northern Manhattan, using the Eighth Avenue Line in Manhattan opened in 1932.

There's some old timey song about hitching a ride in a box car that I can't remember.

Agree with daverock, this is a great vintage Stones tune. I first heard it on the “Garden State 78” double bootleg album. Another great train track from the Stones is Love in Vain, which I believe has already been mentioned.
