    "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.

    Is this box now sold out? They list it, but it seems like that is just some old data. Great set. I love it, but I don't have it physically. Not a huge deal, but it is very lovely.

    I keep going back to this box - superb. Especially the 1974 shows. I went so far as to get 5/19/74 and the Playing in the Band from 5/21/74 on vinyl. There are a few problems with vocals on both, but this matters not a jot. The playing, as you say, from all band members, is absorbing. After 1970 they only needed Bill on drums.

    I also agree with icecrmcnkd - a box of October 1974 with bells and whistles would make a great release.

    Late to the party, but ...

    ... just wanted to share how delighted I am with the music in this set, and encourage anyone who’s not taken the plunge to just go ahead and get it already.

    There’s been some chatter in another thread about how long it’s taking to sell out this box, and all I can say is that, as much as I love ’73 and ’74, I didn’t order mine till Rhino put it on sale. Maybe some people are settling for the 3-disc version, which is understandable, given the difference in price and given that they did manage to include some very high highlights (including the 45 minute PITB!) in that set.

    Also causing some hesitation for me was the packaging. Don’t get me wrong: it’s beautiful! The art work is amazing. But speaking as someone who already has problems finding shelf space for my CDs, I wasn’t sure where I’d put this giant box. (In case anybody upstairs is listening: I thought the June 1976 box really hit the sweet spot between packaging that was elaborate enough to make the box feel special but also small enough to not cause problems.)

    Anyway, the music. The MUSIC. For me, this era was flat out the best the band ever sounded, and it’s an incredible joy to hear them in such fine audio. There are a few “surprises,” the kind of vocal drop outs and oddities in the mix that would’ve rated a “caveat” back in the Dick’s days. Mostly, these are very temporary, and in all cases the sound is really really good once everybody settles in. As usual, Jerry’s louder than Bob, but you can hear them both very distinctly, and they constantly (constantly!) are playing their asses off. Phil’s on fire throughout. And BK? He makes a solid case here that the Dead never needed another drummer. Keith comes through nicely, and plays well. I suppose we could say that the vocals were erratic during this period, and I would admit that’s true here. But the singing is mostly good to great, and man oh man, the band sounds fantastic!

    I’ve only listened to each show once so far—given the complaints about missing discs and whatnot, I felt like I should make a point of listening all the way through to make sure nothing was amiss—so I’m not really ready to call out a favorite show, or even favorite tunes. But I will say that the PITBs, the Bird Songs, the Eyes, the China-Riders are all, for me, as good as they get. Their playing was so spontaneous, so open, so powerful, so much soul, so imperfectly perfect.

    Yes, I suppose there are other, equally worthy eras. But man, ’73 and ’74 were beautiful.

    The hour or so of music from He's Gone through the end of Wharf Rat is one of the top 5 hours of music the dead ever played.

    There, I said it. This box is worth every penny for that hour of music alone.

    Testing with Lossless Audio Checker shows the June 1976 FLAC download in 24/192 format ( https://store.dead.net/music/digital/june-1976-flac-192-24-1.html ) and the Pacific Northwest '73-'74- The Complete Recordings FLAC download in 24/192 ( https://store.dead.net/music/boxed-sets/pacific-northwest-73-74-the-com… ) to be "Upsampled." I have notified Jeffrey Norman and Rhino. I sent Jeffrey the logs of the LAC test results showing 80% of the June 76 files being upsampled. While he was very nice in his response, he had no explanation for the finding. Rhino has not responded to any e-mails. It is important to note that the files on both test “Clean” after downsampling to 24/96, which, likely, means the files, were originally digitized at 24/96 or digitized at 24/192 and downsampled to 24/96 for mastering. Whatever the case Rhino needs to disclose this fact on their web site or change the files for sale to 24/96.

Axl Rose is widely held in a poor regard by the public due to his myriad of bad behaviours during GNR's peak, circa 1988-1993. He's an amazing lyricist and vocalist. Name one song he doesn't sell on Appetite. That shit is amazing. I love Billie Jean by Michael Jackson. And, The Juice OJ Simpson was not only a powerful, graceful artist on the gridiron, he was a cool-ass dude. My boy used to hook him up in Vail, and let me tell you, The Juice partied. People still love him. One touched little boys and one cut his wife's head off. I know that every man has good and evil in him, that the spirits dance among us, occasionally jumping in at an opportune moment to work their evil as well as lay protection. I still hold these men's work in high regard, because their personal failings do not in any way diminish the greatness they produced - only their legacy as human beings. No matter. Axl Rose capably filled in for the ailing Brian Johnson on the last AC/DC tour. For any fans, Angus, Phil Rudd, Cliff Williams and Stevie Young - and yes, Brian, not Axl - have been in Vancouver recently recording what is likely their last, a tribute to Mal album using his pre-recorded rhythm tracks (primarily from Black Ice pre-production) on every song. \m/

I hate to do this, but I also love to do it as it's so kick ass, if one person gets turned on then that was the point: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lsOGww57eD8 I just love music, and we all have that in common. \m/

No way I could really settle on a single album, but seeing the choices people made was interesting, definitely some solid selections. Made me consider a few things. Made me realize that as good as Sgt. Peppers and Abbey Road are, my favorite Beatles album would have to be Let It Be. The Two of Us, I Dig a Pony, Across the Universe and I've Got a Feeling all particularly click for me, and the entire album is top shelf. Sounds a little different that other Beatles albums, maybe just a little more raw, but what do I know? For the Dead it would have to be Live Dead, that 2/27/69 Dark Star still sends a shiver up my spine when it starts, and it is still the Dark Star against which all others are measured. An indispensable album, and one that is etched into my brain. Deeply etched into my brain. Perhaps due to my recent Buffalo Springfield box set purchase, it also occurs to me that Buffalo Springfield Again is a contender. From start to finish the album is gorgeous and Rock and Roll Woman evokes childhood memories of hearing that song in pleasant contexts, strikes a chord as it were. Just some thoughts on the near impossible task of selecting a single best album of all time. There can be only one...

I see that several folks put American Beauty on the top album list, but I didn't notice Workingman's Dead on the list. I like American Beauty, but for whatever reason, I like Workingman's Dead even more - each and every song is great and there is just such a nice, warm folksy feel to the album from start to finish. High Time and Easy Wind always hit the spot for me, and what's not to like about an album that also contains Dire Wolf, Uncle John's Band, Cumberland Blues, Black Peter, and Casey Jones? Workingman's Dead, if you haven't listened to it recently, give it a spin it won't disappoint.

Real tough, I guess I might suggest Kind of Blue and A Love Supreme as being perfect albums with no filler. I have alot of albums in mind that I consider to be the best by their respective creators, but its harder to pit them against others due to how drastically the musical intent can change. For example Paranoid by Black Sabbath may be their best album, but the musical intent is completely different than say, Os Mutantes self titled debut. I consider both to be just as solid and representative of their creators best, but its hard to compare them in any other way. Then there are albums that I personally enjoy the most but can understand why they aren't usually considered the "best", a few well known examples include 'AoxomoxoA', 'Revolver', 'Blonde on Blonde', 'Axis Bold as Love' and 'Strictly Personal'(Captain Beefheart). I am also among those that enjoy 'Working Man's Dead' over 'American Reality', if just by a hair more. Finally there are albums I personally think of as being masterpieces that many people (quite understandably) may not be able to get into at all, so its hard to choose any of those as the "best". A few of those examples are 'Wee Tam and the Big Huge' by the Incredible String Band, "Piper at the Gates of Dawn" from PF, and 'Black Saint and the Sinner Lady' by Mingus.

As for the best live album release, that's even harder to choose in my opinion. But the one cd that came immediately to my mind was 'Muleskinner Live: Original Television Soundtrack'. I wouldn't say it's the best ever, but it is one of my most listened to and favorite live recordings. Bill Keith, David Grisman, Peter Rowan, Clarence White, Richard Greene and even Maria Muldaur joins in for a couple tunes near the end.

I am partial to Revolver and Rubber Soul, with The White Album sliding in very close behind. I know Sgt. Peppers is likely the favorite and more ground breaking.. I guess I have a bias to their moment of awakening. I still remember the first time I heard Tomorrow Never Knows. I was like, what??? I guess when it comes to best albums I have a bias on what they mean to me. It would be easier to say American Beauty as the best GD album, but Anthem was groundbreaking. Yes, Anthem is probably a better album but AOS grabbed me, pulled me out of my shoes and transports me to far away, strange lands. American Beauty is like comfort food for the soul.

If you are looking for some "great" folk music try some old Hoyt Axton cd's. He is one of my "favorite" artists. Hoyt Axton Explodes is worth a few minutes of your time along with Green back dollar. In a few more days the box will be sent. Have a safe Labor Day! Mr. Pete------------> aging hippie

Not familiar with a lot of Hoyt Axton stuff, but he did write some of my favorite songs done by Three Dog Night, songs Joy to the World and especially Never Been to Spain are great. I'll have to check out some of his other stuff. Dig reading all the choices for best album, it is prompting me to dig out some classics that I haven't listened to in a while. So many choices.

Between those two I narrowly prefer American Beauty. But they are kinda sorta the same album just Part 1 and Part 2. As of this moment my fave Dead studio release is Wake of the Flood.

My favourite Dead studio albums are Anthem-the one that got me into them - and American Beauty. Sergeant Pepper is my favourite Beatles album, followed by Revolver, Rubber Soul and Magical Mystery Tour. As far as favourite albums outside The Dead and Beatles, I can remember reading somewhere once that the records that mean the most to us are the ones we heard when we were 15. That places me in 1972, and to some extent, this is true for me. Ziggy Stardust is up there with Sergeant Pepper, to me-in fact all Bowie's albums, up to and including Alladin Sane are special for me. Similarly, Electric Warrior by T.Rex and Space Ritual by Hawkwind. God-those were the days! A combination of the albums, seeing the bands and who I was at the time. I didn't discover The Dead until I was a world weary 19 year old.

I cannot pick which one is better, Workingman's Dead or American Beauty. For me, I see it as one album with Workingman's as part 1 and American as part 2.Also, the original, basic albums fit on one CD-R.

Daverocks comment about age relevancy speaks to me... geezer alert for the following... still have almost all my old vinyl, though about unplayable. High Tide and Green Grass by The Stones (1966), then Flowers (1967). The Stones were my gateway into music at 14, through them discovered Muddy and Chuck, first MW was Electric Mud, controversial at the time, people thought Muddy had gone psychedelic. After I listened to Folk Singer, I understood why. Yardbirds Over Under... Cream Disraeli Gears, Hendrix AYE & ABL. I grew up in DC metro area, listened to WHFS and WAMU. When I bought Berry's After School Sessions, it had already been out for almost ten years. Spring 1967, major debate between Surrealistic Pillow and Sargent Peppers, could not afford both, had to save up... Bought Pillow first, Peppers seemed a little overproduced. Soon after, GOGD, Anthem was my first of theirs made me go back asap to grab their first lp. First rock show, Hendrix at the Washington Hilton with Soft Machine March 1968. Later that year, heard Jeff Beck Shapes of Things on the radio, immediately went out and bought Truth. Donovan's Hurdy Gurdy Man made quite an impression. By that time, I had a paper route for the WaPo so i could buy music.

I won't try to determine the "best" studio album but I will say that my "favorite" studio album is either Revolver, Blood on the Tracks, or Abbey Road, depending on my mood. Another great studio gem that's great from start to finish is Layla and other assorted Love Songs. And I can't get enough of Steely Dan's Aja and Kay Lied (the sum is better than it's parts on Katy IMO).Mr. Dc mentioned a couple great jazz albums so I'll add that I love Miles Davis' In a Silent Way.

American Beauty / Grateful Dead - as great as it is, still like Workingman's Dead better.Revolver / Beatles - Tomorrow Never Knows is definitely fantastic. Greatest Hits / Al Green - good stuff, the Rev. hits the spot sometimes. Pet Sounds / Beach Boys - definitely a masterpiece from start to finish, there is something haunting about Pet Sounds and Caroline, No. Let It Be / Beatles - still my favorite Beatles album, Across the Universe probably my single favorite Beatles tune, and I really like the Beatles. Easy to pick some things to listen to today after reading the best album choices. I think I would add Can't Buy a Thrill, my favorite Steely Dan album, as another contender. With the release date for this PNW box less than a week away, I am starting to fiend.

For Beatles, I do love the psychedelic stuff: Strawberry Fields, Walrus, Rain, Tomorrow Never Knows, Across The Universe, Dear Prudence, etc. If I had to pick one album, though, I'd probably go with Abbey Road. Side 2 medley is the perfect culmination of all their mad skills. The Sun King is so cool, with that main hook and then the slow electric strumming on top of it (Lennon plays the main part; not sure if he or George does the dreamy strumming - George definitely plays some lead fills in there, and has credit for playing). In my search to find out, I read that The Sun King was influenced by Fleetwood Mac's Albatross - who knew!

....someone here mentioned the other day about waking up with a song their head. A song that lingers for an hour or more. Happens to me all the time. This morning it was this song. Cued up Zenyatta Mondatta after my shower. Followed by Syncronicity. Funny that two of The Police's most popular songs are about stalking and pedophilia. Went right over my head when I was 13. It's funny that the song right after Don't Stand So Close To Me is Driven To Tears. Can't fool me. I'm no psychologist, but I think that is a side effect of a person who enjoys some sort of music to be always playing in the background or foreground. Welcome to my curse.

Lewiston, Anchorage, Fox Theater, Lakeland, Radio City, Warfield, Cumberland County Civic Center, Cape Cod, Merriweather, SPAC, Richmond, Gainesville, Nassau, Frost, so many Alpines, Greeks, Red Rocks. Gainesville. Early GD was a seismic event, life changing stuff.. but it sort of just kept on going and it was wonderful (at least) to most of us. Think how shitty life would have been if it just ended in 1974. (well more than wonderful up until that point at least). I am grateful the train kept rolling. I have met so many friends that didn't see or hear their first show until 94 or 95 or 2015. I think it's great that the wheels keep on turning. Lewiston ME, great show. Wish I was there and I wish Betty recorded it too (while I'm wishing). Edit: Wait, is this a 73/74 box set thread. I am every bit, wait more excited for this box as I was for the Winterland 73 box. I believe this will prove to be a greater offering than the invention of McDonald's Special Sauce (invented by Esther Glickstein Rose in 1967). This is special stuff.

Holy shit, sometimes I can't believe the coincidences that occur in Deadland.I just finished the book, The Phantom Punch, about the second Ali-Liston fight and it led me to 9-6-80 which I happen to be listening to (for the first time I'm pretty sure) right now! I'm fucking impressed as hell, Jerry's on fire and Bob sounds great as well. Believe it or not I was actually visiting here tonight specifically to mention this show. Obviously a few of you beat me to it. I've been on a bit of an 80s bender as of late, very unusual for me but inspired by the latest DaP which I really enjoyed. I really like the '89 show from Boxzilla and had to relisten to the '83 show. Have to say that another listen to DaP20 reminded me why that one hasn't moved from the shelf since the first listen. 9-10-91 also got some love as well as a few other partial listens. Anyway, I've been enjoying a bit of 80s because once this new box arrives I will be listening to almost nothing else for perhaps the rest of the year. This is, for my personal preference, my most anticipated box since Winterland '73. Again, I can't believe I came here tonight to comment on what I thought was a relatively random show and there was already a discussion about it in progress. Just a little on the freaky side...
