    "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?…

    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.

    Crow told me-spot on

    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…

    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.

The discs are scuffed. Some worse than others but of the three that had marks all played through. One disc is really scuffed with two rather wide lines so I took photos and will request a replacement disc. For those who have yet to purchase this remarkable Box, I highly suggest you pull the trigger as everything about this release is just spectacular. The performances, the mix, artwork and booklet are impressive. Perhaps the best Wall of Sound releases to date. Too many details to list here but so far after hearing three shows it’s a must for any Deadhead.

Listening to this over the week and weekend, very excited to hear these re-mastered. Seattle is my adopted home too! And, Lyle Lovett at Chateau ste Michelle Saturday night, what a voice. Can someone tell us who ordered digital copies if the shows came with individual show cover art? I import these box sets as individual shows so each song doesn't have to have the day/location. Something like; Pacific Northwest '73-'74 Box Set (5.17.74 - Vancouver, BC) as the Album name. Dave et al can't you provide some quality images to download for our digital copies? If anyone has some please post. Hope you guys get the discs issues fixed. It's happened to me twice, and the good Dr Rhino always took care of it, just takes a while.

As luck (or fate?) would have it, Im in Portland for a few days, but have heard from reliable sources that the box has touched down in Chicago. Here's hoping there are no issues with packaging, missing or scratched discs etc. based on some of the comments below. But even if there are, it'll be ok. There are bigger worries out there, namely hurricane Flo. Here's hoping everyone has gotten put of there, and damages aren't too bad. If you're anywhere near the pat get to high ground and if you can, bring some dead music with you to keep your spirits up.

Unlike the 30TATS USB, no digital booklet came with the download. Just one jpg and 166 tracks. If I were to complain, this would be the complaint; that there is no book. Buy the download, get the book in mail. That would be fair. I thought a book should have come with the $600 USB bolt, but only a PDF was included on the USB. The profit margin on the downloads vs. the physical box must be...? eh not my department. I'll just stick to listening to the music....and all if have to say is FFFFFFFFfffffffffff. This PNW box is a monster! Sound quality is breathtaking. I am in love. Cheers!

Box #11763 arrived this evening. Physical status report: all discs present and accounted for, although #1 is very badly scratched and #11 is also scratched in several places. I didn't want to start my night on a bad note so I grabbed 6/26/73 Seattle and let 'er rip. I had a lot of '73 in my tape collection back in the day, but (for whatever reason) nothing after Kezar until the Fall tour, so these summer shows are brand new to my ears. I'm in the 4th week recovering from surgery and I'm still off work, so this beautiful box arrived at a perfect time to lift my spirits. My wife took one look at it and raised an eyebrow: "that's beautiful! It's going on the mantelpiece." She's over there now, moving soapstone boxes, Japanese pottery, Chinese chops, a brass puja vessel and other such objects to make room. It'll fit right in. :) This is the first GD box set I've picked up. I've been a Dave's Pick's subscriber for a few years but somehow to my everlasting regret I always get caught snoozing on the box sets. Not this time! Cheers everyone.

I received box 14913 today in the Pacific Northwest.Totally random (although I'm pretty sure Bill Walton or some other poobah skimmed 00001). With my Dave's subscription and other releases like this it's like a major Holiday 6 times a year. Thank you Grateful Dead Inc. What a wonderful box.

Mr. Lemieux, I want to take a minute, or so, to thank you and your staff, for the job you have done with this box set and ones in the past. It makes it possible for "old" dead heads, like me, to get music that we would normally not have access to. The quality of Norman's work is...wonderful. The art work, on your boxes is beautifully executed. This new box is excellent. Again, thanks for your efforts bringing Grateful Dead music to all of us. Mr. Pete----------> aging hippie p.s. PLEASE give some serious consideration to a Greek box. I was never able to make any of these shows and would love to hear them before I can't!! p.s.s. You need to make the cd covers a bit bigger so they do NOT scratch the discs while being inserted. Nugs does an excellent job with their style of cd covers. Just a thought!

I do NOT understand the posted comment...Trolling? I thought my comment(s) were VERY clear. I "appreciate" the music Dave and his staff puts out for all of us. It is excellent quality with the occasional glitch. Nothing is...perfect.In NO way was I looking for.....any free stuff. At my age I have all the things I will ever need. If I started to listen to only my Dead cd's I would take me the next forty years listening eight hours a day! As noted...I would love to hear a Greek box...which I would "gladly" pay for!! Again...I do NOT understand the response posted on this site. Maybe I am must old and...stupid! Mr. Pete--------> aging hippie

Hot damn! It is unusual that I feel the need to write about each time I listen to a release, but this one is out of this world! Jerry kills Black Peter, GSET and RxRBlues keep the set chugging along, (especially GSET - sounds like it's close to going off the rails, but they keep it just on this side of chaos...) and then the jam suite! What an incredible chunk of music! Last night, I was grooving hard, then Phil's bass solo comes on. At first, I'm very excited, then a little ho hum... then, AS SOON as I thought that it was time to move on, out comes Jerry for one of the coolest things I have heard in a long time. The Phil/Jerry jam is just gorgeous Space, then in comes Keith... finally the whole band, and it all ends up in a jam that reminds me SO MUCH of 70 Miles Davis. Killer! And I haven't even mentioned TOO>Wharf Rat! What a show!!! I agree with many here that feel like Dave sometimes goes a little above and beyond with his hyperbolic enthusiasm for these releases, but I feel like his SeaSide chat about this particular show is just exactly perfect. All of the highlights he mentions are truly HIGHlights! I'll spare you all an update on disc 4... some guy on the internet wrote something along the lines of "Disc 4 of PNW box, PNE73: Sugar Mag, Casey Jones, Johnny B Goode - worst disc of GD ever?" Well, after hearing the first 3 discs of this mind-blowing box set, I'm betting I'll be wowed by those three tunes as well. Peace

Ignore them. You're right they're trolls. There's an insular group of hypersensitive know it all posters here who need to mess with people. The good folks at Rhino take good care of us and I appreciate their work greatly. Not feeling the need to hyprcritically analyze every note. I feel the same about a Greek box. For me though I was lucky enough to see every one. Enjoy I sure do. .....Another aging hippy

This wonderful piece of art arrived at my place yesterday: from USA to Switzerland in just two days!Anyway I had to pay custom charges, the equivalent of about 44 US dollars. So in the end the box costed me about 300 US dollars. But I'm happy with it. Thank you Dead.net and thank you Rhino!

I'm not sure where folks come up with the number of box sets ordered / remaining from what seems to be their order confirmation. I just ordered mine the other day & the 1st 5 digits of the "order number" are 13740. I don't know if that's right for with some other box sets I've noticed dead.net puts a banner on there saying something like "less than 5,000 left". Anyways, there you have it if indeed my order # means 13,740 have been ordered.

It has nothing to do with order numbers. It is simply a question of seeing how many you can put in your shopping cart before it refuses to take any more. If you can put 13740 in your cart but it refuses to accept 13741, this suggests that there are 13740 left. Tip: Do NOT hit the "Checkout" button.

box #14346 arrived in Berlin,Germany yesterday but delivery attempt failed since I was at work by noon...picked it up myself today at an UPS collection point 10 minutes from work and had to pay 51,32 Euros for taxes and so called "brokerage" with the latter being more of a ransom to get my box released... one bottom corner of the box is slightly damaged,disc #16 doesn't look pristine but plays fine... I'd rather prefer USPS shipping,arrives later but cheaper than 53,99 US$ for UPS shipping and handling fee as the only option for ordering and no "brokerage" upon arrival and might slip through customs... HAPPY though

PatagonianFox posted: received fake email asking me to sign into dead.net email said i would lose my account for inactivity if i did not sign in soon. i'm pretty sure dead.net does not save payment information, but i just wanted to give everyone a heads up, so they can prevent their account from being hacked. ----- The body of the email message is: (name withheld), In an effort to maintain the best possible experience for our users, we periodically remove inactive accounts from the site. We noticed you haven’t logged in for over 5 years. If you would like us to keep your account, simply log in to the site within 2 weeks. If you don’t remember your password, you can reset it HERE. www.Dead.Net/User/Password Thanks! ----- I used to have 2 accounts at dead.net. I removed one almost 10 years ago, about 5 or more years ago, I tried to login to dead.net using that account and password. It didn't work. I understand the meaning of this email is that the system operators (sys-ops) are simply cleaning out old inactive email accounts so customer service can server the active customers better. I take it in stride, I'll see what happens in 2 weeks. I sometimes log onto dead.net 2, 3, sometimes 4 or more times, especially the other day when this Pacific Northwest boxset was shipping.

Will we ever know what's in the inner box in the box? It could be a dead cat, but only direct examination will reveal that.

Man O'man.... You guys really outdid yourselves with this boxed set. Unbelievable artwork and fantastic quality. I participated in both the '73 & '74 concerts at Hec Ed pavilion, wall of sound and all. I'm walkin', I'm talkin, and proud that I can still remember those (and many other) Dead moments! Thank you so very much.

Just received my package, here in the UK, and it only took around a week, which is fantastic. Had to pay Customs and VAT, but still well worth it. Some serious listening coming up over the next few days.

This box sounds so fucking beautiful. "Looks like Rain" from Portland 73 makes me melting away, and now "Box of Rain" (while it's raining outside, even thundering) seems to be even prettier than the one from Vancouver.The songs are mostly played quite slowly, but that makes me listen much more to the details and the finesses. I wasn't blown away by Phil's bass explorations (Vancouver) and found "The Other One" much more interesting. Keith's piano playing stands out on almost every track. "They love each other" is surprising at every corner and it's got that funny rhythm. Well you can't really describe music, you have to listen to it. I had to laugh about how many customers are into numbers (of the box). If you're into the music, what does it matter? Enjoy, enjoy, Yippie!!!! RNB

They also have our names. Looks like a hack job. I have sent a PM to MaryE asking her to look into this. The website is also sluggish right now for no obvious reason. I also don't think the "trolling" comment was aimed at Mr. Pete. I do have a good idea who it was aimed at, but I don't think it was a reasonable comment bearing in mind the content of the post it was probably aimed at.

I'm with mhammond12. I don't think the trolling comment was aimed in Mr. Pete's direction. Seems like it might have been in response to an earlier post in the thread.

I got a nice even number, looks good on the ticket anyhow. I ordered back on June 12th, was surprised at how high the number was but I'm ok with it because it doesn't play music anyways. :-) Extremely Grateful, the music is incredible. The art and creation of the box is beyond beautiful, even the art on the inside of the box lid is amazing.

And it wasn't meant like a "troll" who stirs up internet fights. It was meant like trolling for fish - you know, to make a large sweep with a dragnet and catch what you can. Or in this case, trolling the message board crowd for a free box set. I'm going to get bombarded with rotten tomatoes for this, but....I find the audio in the 1973 shows to be a little bit "off". Jerry too low, flutteryness in places, Keith coming and going from parts of the show. Certainly not as good as DaP 16 and 21, or 30 Trips 1973, or really any 1973 show that comes to mind. I'm only one disc into show #3, but there's just some ooomph missing. I could change my mind, I keep listening. The vocals are very tinny in places.
