Grateful Dead

Welcome to the Sunshine Daydream Boutique.

On August 27, 1972, fresh off their now-legendary European tour, the Grateful Dead traveled to Veneta, OR and reunited with the Merry Pranksters for a common cause – to throw a benefit concert for the Kesey family’s Springfield Creamery. A stage was erected under the hot Oregon sun at the Olde Renaissance Fairgrounds, tickets were printed on the fronts of the Creamery’s yogurt labels, and the rest is history…

Agree, the Playin' is mesmerizing.

And one of my favorites. Will have have to listen to a few others from this era. 72' is probably my favorite year hands down. Dark Stars , other ones, sing me back home, two souls in communion (the stranger), wow Europe 72 , Morning Dew. Truckin' , Comes A Time, Cumberland Blues, wow it's doesn't get any better for me.

PITB

I have been unable to get CD2 out of my car player for over a week, I can hardly wait for GSET to be over to start the disc again.
In my opinion 4.5 minutes into Playing is the epitomy and end-all of what the Dead is to me. I can't even describe the mesmerizing effect this has on me. I have never heard any other music by any other band that comes close to this. Between this Louisville 74' and DP31 is a toss up. Louisville had been my favorite for over 30 years, even the crappy version i had some old maxell dc90 tape. However, this relaease is close.

ANTHEM OF THE SUN REMIX

I know this is not the thread to mention this, but I was listening to the HDTracks remastered version of "Anthem of the Sun", and it happens to be the 1971 remix made by Phil Lesh and not the original 1968 mix available on CD. The original is better, at least for my taste, but it is interesting listening to a different approach to that hallucinating beast that is the Dead's second LP.

I agree with 1971

Bring on some more 1971. Great, great sound.

Dave's #3 - love the piano, The Other One and all of it

I absolutely agree it is vastly under-loved, for sure my #2 Dave's Picks.

My fave PITB is still the burning 10 min version on the Academy of Music bonus disc.

PITB and DaP 3

Here here for the Veneta PITB. Blair raves about it in his Golden Road column, archived here somewhere. It's probably not smart to pick favorites, but I think this version is mine. And Dave's 3 has a flavor unheard elsewhere, I guess because of Keith's newness to the madness of the GD. His parts are not fully-formed, yet they are amazingly aligned with his new band's vision. How did he do that?
