Grateful Dead

Dave's Picks Volume 23: Eugene, OR 1/22/78 - SOLD OUT


Looking for more great tunes from 1978? Check out Red Rocks 7/8/78 and July 1978: The Complete Recordings.

Close encounters in Eugene, Oregon! We are not alone in saying this one could be considered top-of-line Grateful Dead from 1978. Yes, as the tales have been told, 1/22/78 conjured up vibes of the Be-in, Altamont, Yippies, Psychedelia, Woodstock, Free Speech, Acid Trips, heaven for one lucky concert-goer, and of course, aliens. If you wanna know what we’re on about, there’s no better way to experience the show than with this lovingly-restored version from legendary sound engineer Betty Cantor-Jackson’s recordings. Witness sets packed with bright and vibrant gems like a surprisingly heavy “Row Jimmy,” a freshly tender “Ship Of Fools,” and a transcendental “The Other One.” And if you have levitated too far, Jerry’s “Close Encounters” solo (ironic, we know) will reel you back in and set you right up for the powerful crescendo of “St. Stephen” and the band's shake-it-all-about boogie-down finale.

Mastered to HDCD specs by Jeffrey Norman and featuring illustrations by 2017 Dave's Picks Artist-In-Residence Dave Van Patten and liners by Grateful Dead scribe Jesse Jarnow, Dave's Picks Volume 23 is limited to 16,500 individually numbered copies.

These releases have been known to sell out in a matter of hours so you’ll wanna grab a copy while you can.

I love part of DP33. 10/9 is my all time favorite show from 1976. Question to you Vguy, and others too. Do you get into the 10/10 show as much? I do not. If I list 1976 favorites in order of show and not release, 10/9 comes first, and then several shows jump in line ahead of 10/10. Road Trips 4.5 (6/9), DaP 18 (both shows, 7/17 & 7/16) Cow Palace (12/31), Grateful Dead Download Series Volume 4 (6/18), and DaP 4 (9/24).

Amityville house

That ain't it.

As a kid, visiting my cousins in Deer Park, Long Island, we spent one night over in Amityville to see the house, and that ain't quite it. At least to my memory, 35+ years later.

Yeah, the hat3d one has been around.

PS. OK, that could be it...I couldn't have been more than 10 when I saw it. My cousin was way scarier than the house itself, though.

Great Releases

We totally forgot the Winterland Boxes.. all the great Road Trips (2/14/68, 5/15/70, 6/16-18/74, Denver 73, Pow Wow, 1971's and a few others come to mind. Holy shit.. my office is a treasure chest of full of gems.

As much as we complain about each and every release (well, just a few outliers).. these are the best of times and I'm truly grateful for that.

I think we lost Mr. Jack Straw through all the bickering.. but that guy could create lists. What are your favorite releases folks.. seriously.

With So Much Trouble in the World.. music is a great escape, solace for the soul.

If I get a chance, I will create my first list. But I bet there's better people out there at this than I.

I can tell what I have been listening to recently.. 1970, 1972, 1974, lots of 1978 and just a touch of (mojo hand) 1984..

2017 was a very good year.
There's a true story out there, when Jerry met Frank Sinatra. I think Parish facilitated it. 2017 was a very good year.

You made a couple of truthful statements:

"...(probably drunkenly)..."

Yup, guilty as charged ;)

And, "I don't know enough about life..."

That's for sure. What you do know however, is how to reguritate the far Leftist propaganda that was spoon fed to you in college and possibly also by parents trying to relive the 60s.

Only it ain't the 60s any longer, and you are trying to find some cause to give a righteous meaning to your life, like your heores (my heores as well), but since there is no legitimate battle to be fought, at least not as you envisioned it, you're just going to make pretend and invent one, facts be damned.

In this respect, you bear a striking resemblance to the frat boys in the 90s, who donned tie dye t-shirts and magically became "dead heads" for an evening.

By the way, all my Black and Hispanic officer friends are equally horrified that some lily white douche from the other side of the country can paint them as racist oppresors just hunting poor Black men.

The really sad part is that your make pretend narrative is repeated ad naseum by the MSM, and results in the deaths of good officers.

I'll give you points for the Travis Buckle reference, though. Awesome movie! So NY, I get nostalgic whenever I see it. I remember when De Niro used to come into the restaurant to bulk up for Raging Bull...

All Good Vibes Jim

I spoke too soon and forgot to mention Spring 90. I was at one point not into the Brent era. but went and purchased Terrapin Limited. had it for awhile. came home one spring nite from work and put in my car for a Killians beer run and jalepeno chips. Easy To Love you came on in the drizzling rain at nite and was into it the moment I heard the opening keyboards. since then I was into spring 90 and Dozin at the Knick didn't help my growing fascination just fueled it more. putting in spring '90 at any one time will make say to myself "this is why I'm into this band". all those shakedown streets, Foolish Hearts and Built To Last's I cant Deny: what a wonderful beautiful era of the Dead.

..but apparently 30 Trips, Dave's Picks, July 78, May 77 and Spring 90 Kick Ass.

About world news.. throughout history, things always tend to suck ten to twenty years after global financial calamities. A lot of this is fallout and a hangover from the Great Recession. Be patient follow Kyles lead.. be thankful for what we have and exercise a little patience for things to get better. They will.. god forbid we get into a big war or anything.

Cooler heads usually prevail, play more Dead.. that's my advice. ..and hey Senator, you've got recreational freedom to spark up on your side. I can't say the same. yet...

Woodstock Anniversary

On the 48th anniversary of the final day of Woodstock, once again here's the link to all the best existing recordings of the three day festival. The Woodstock Project has gathered all known recordings ranging from every official release to to a muffled audio of Joan Baez's We Shall Be Released accidentally captured on someone's recorder while they walked through the crowd. Also interviews and media reports, etc., etc.

Link to the downloads: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0Bw0er6aYteccbGdUNjU3ZzNpa1U

Woodstock Project homepage: http://woodstockproject.proboards.com/

If you haven't before, check out the Dead on Day 2 (Saturday). Even with all the problems with rain, lightning, electricity and gravity, it's not nearly as bad as Jerry remembered afterwards, especially the Dark Star.

78

Hope everyone is well...haven't been around in a while. In fact i was stuck in a time warp. Since this new release, i've literally listened to nothing but shows from 1978. Man oh man has it been enjoyable. '78 has always been one of my favorite years...the polish from 77 is starting to wear off, and the band is getting increasingly wild and unruly. Can't get enough. Dave has truly picked some good ones from that year (he was also responsible for dicks picks 18 i believe)

Jim, i agree, we can always use a new release. After the gems we've gotten this year i'd be happy with anything we get. Really thinking we're in a for a 68 or 69 show though which would be an amazing way to end the year.

No Flippin Way..

Just did a solo river run after work, ..I never know what's on the waterproof devices I use.. I have four and just grab one on the way out the door.. and during the steep section I get That's It for the Other One and the rest from Dicks Picks 4 (2/13 and 2/14/70). Its always a trick to figure out what's playing, because I never take note.. I just grab something. This one wasn't that hard to figure out. I just finished replying to a PM spilling the splendid details.. ending with all is all right with the world..

Too funny.. one of the truly great releases. Now if they only remastered a mini-box of both shows in their entirety, I could die in peace (oh and add in soundboards from the Capital Theatre run later that fall...) then my life would be complete.

Drinking a rather nice glass of white, finishing the work I skipped earlier.

We need a new release.

And KF.. man, be careful what you drink and eat when Bolo's around. Weeks can turn into months...

Bartender Please

1970 now, 2/13. Was going great and then Black Peter stopped the show dead in its tracks. Reminds me of that scene from Empire Strikes Back when Luke encounters Darth Vader in the cave, but it's not really Darth Vader. There goes the momentum, nice. Butch, is that the Amityville Horror house? Talk about your spooky shit. I read the book in 3rd grade, then watched the movie. Scared the fuuuuk out of me. Didn't sleep with the lights off for a year. Keithfan, I need one of your reburns man, on Road Trips 3.3, May 14 &15, 1970. I gotta get all ofbthe electric together without all the fades. I like my electric and acoustic separate, and they're all over the place with this shit. I know you're on the Inca trail or whatever, probably bailing JimInMD or Vguy out of jail, but really, what are you on sabatical or something? Need you here. The bitches keep bitchin, the snitches keep snitchin. Gary Farseer, I've been thinking about this - sleep with her if you can. You only live once. Be discreet. Closing of Winterland. Now there's a record. Bartender please, fill my glass for me, with the wine you gave Jesus that set him free, after three days in the ground.

No bad vibes

I couldn't detect any bad vibes at all in what you wrote, Seth. Speaking out against racism and ignorance is necessary, and restores the balance that has been threatened. If it seems unattractive-then that is the price paid for maintaining and promoting a positive and healthy atmosphere. The quality of life is richer by far when people have the courage and wit to counteract the oppressive-so long may you run!

I'm a little curious as to what our next '74 release might be.. I get the feeling we will get another one of these soon.. My guess is the next will have either a Dark Star or an Other One.

I think KeithFan was doing some research on this a month or so ago. Speaking of KF, word on the street is he was last seen walking aimlessly on the Inca Trail trying to find some shaman named 'Pablo.' Has a subtle scent of Bolo to it if you ask me..

"Our misguided racist ruffians were just pretending to be Europeans, but they can't ever hope to seriously mimick the real thing, can they;) I mean, they would have to murder several million people first to gain that European street cred, wouldn't they?"

Nice, a statement combining a downplaying of our homegrown MONSTERS with a little "backhanded insult" of Europeans. Our monsters all hope to murder millions. That is what unites them!

"Tell me again how I overreacted and misinterpreted Simon's comments a few weeks back..."

Sure: You totally (probably drunkenly) did over-react to Simon's statement about a cheap shitty Fast Food corporation. Really, disparaging Taco Bell is an attack on our way of life? Wow.

"Let's be perfectly clear here: Europeans are most welcome, but anti-American B.S. is not, and yes, I'm only speaking for myself here."

Speaking for MY SELF, I can't come up with any blanket statement about who is WELCOME on these threads by my standards, but all people are allowed here, as are all statements, agreeable or not. Everyone is free to disagree. Arguments, insults, and strong desires that some people won't post will occur. A free space is a difficult environment.

"Everyone else is too polite or too brainnwashed, to object to the backhanded insults to the greatest country in the history of this planet."

If by "the greatest country in the history of this planet" you mean the USA, I think our core beliefs are too different for us to meaningfully discuss it. We have the most bombs, the most money (I am not sure of that!), and enjoy a great deal of prosperity and freedom. MY LIFE in this country has been great! I am thankful for that and don't really want to give it up, but I am not able to ignore the stains on our countries history. What we have is the legacy of political and economic colonialism and comes at the expense of other countries bent to our servitude. In my opinion, a "great" country would be one that DIDN'T commit genocide against it's original natives before Bantustanning them and DIDN'T create an economic empire that impoverished other countries to build up it's own prosperity. I realize that I this opinion is mine and not a popular one, but I am saying it.
I don't know enough about life in other countries to compare us to them. My snap judgement, lacking research and serious intellectual engagement is to nominate Switzerland for "the greatest country in the history of this planet".

It horrifies me that you enjoy The same music I do, but it horrifies me even more that you carry a gun and a badge around NYC while your head is full of Travis Bickle thoughts. You are a bomb ticking...

Riverbend Set 2

Hey now Jim, just sat down with the headphones (in my new "den" music room, finally got it painted and ready, assembled the IKEA Kallax shelves for the vinyl, all my music and stereo stuff is finally in one room again, praise The Lord). My wife is putting the little one to bed and I'm just into Iko. Looking forward to the Cryptical Other One goodies, and of course anyone who knows my fixation on 5/4/77 knows I'm always looking for a good Comes a Time. I have not listened to this second set before. Let's just say I've been taking TTATS in small doses. At least after my initial binge up through 1980.

Damn, I was old enough to have gone to see the 9/3/85 show at Starlight in KC. I wish I could go back and kick my 16 year old ass.

Next release; Riverbend 1985; Welker

Another vote for Welker right here.

Or, can they get Wes Wilson out of semi-retirement down in the Ozarks?

Funny 1985 has come up, I have been thinking of 1985 as a good year for the next Dave's. Then it hit me last night - thanks to 30 Trips, I could listen to Riverbend 6/24/85. I really hadn't given that one a fair shake. It's phenomenal. By TLEO the sound is dialed in - a nice spacious mix for 1985 (compare to DP 21 for example). Even the "tennis shoes in the dryer" have a pretty full sound.

Even TLEO sounds great - a nice change from the late'70s versions I've been hearing lately, with swooping and trippy organ from Brent and crystalline playing from Jerry. Finished the first set with a powerhouse Let it Grow. Only got through Set 1 last night, Set 2 is up for tonight, but damn good stuff.

Jerry Week Redux / We Need A New Release

First.. sorry to say but as good as Dave's Picks 23 was, and it was and is fantastic.. we need a new release. Like a junkie with a fresh bag.. I need a new fix.

I always look forward to and enjoy Jerry week. If nothing else.. it forces my hand to listen to a bit more Jerry Band, and what's wrong with that? I had the unfortunate pleasure of moving my parents last week, they have gotten on in years and can't manage on their own anymore. The rest of my family was busy, but I was able to help this time.. Drove South.. rented a big ass UHaul and spend the week sweating my ass off, getting bitten by the strange biting insects of the South and driving an absurdly large truck with reckless abandon up and down the East Coast.

I did have some serious hours behind the wheel though and both brought lots of good tunes and had SiriusXM on when I was in my truck, which was more than half the driving time. I caught the 8/4/17 Jerry Fest at Red Rocks in its entirety. Man was that sweet.. starting with what's left of the Jerry Garcia Acoustic Band (plus a few great cameo sit in's), what's left of the JGB then Bobby and Friends starting with his campfire ensemble and morphing into a slimmed down Dead & Co. It was really well done.. made for a long evening of great music, familiar tunes and new takes on the soundtrack that is my life. The drive time melted by like a stoned walk in the park.

I'm surprised I didn't hear anyone comment on this show.. like I said really well done. I felt like I spent the week with a bunch of old friends I had not seen in a very long time.

Jerry Week.. 22 years in the making and it just keeps getting better year after year.

Oh.. and we need a new release... :D We really need a new release.
