"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 anybody out there? Having trouble finding where is what. I know this shit will work out, see you on the other side
I'm not sure if it's working🤯
Yeah, finally emojis
Looks like it works.
Comments on the other board seemed a bit easier... but change is usually good. Here's to breaking this site in.
oh.. Hi Erik / Dennis
Lets see if pics and videos work...

..well, it doesn't seem to allow us to embed videos and pictures but apparently we can post links. I am guessing the intent was to make it safer and less prone to the rampant ruskie hackers that used to roam these threads. Progress I guess.

Clicking on the avatar photo link doesn’t work on a mobile phone. And the drop-down arrow on the photo doesn’t work either. Just want to let you know. Thanks.
I do not know how to send you a PM on the new site.
With the Safari browser, hovering over the avatar does not bring up any menu.
My avatar has changed since the change of the site, I wonder why.
When I want to restore my avatar with the Firefox browser, at the bottom of my profile editing page the SAVE button does not react.
Excuse my english, I'm french.
Thank you for your help.
Buenos ding-dong-diddly dias, senor.
This place doesn't swank and swing like it used to... Comments and conversations were central to the old dead.net, they are buried under the glitz in the new house. I hope they change that, but I am not holding my breath.
They put a whole lot of work into this and I think they did a great job.. but they buried user comments a bit, they are no longer central which is a shame.
Oh well, no bother.. be good all, play dead.
Caution (Do Not Stop On Tracks) just came over the randomizer, 10/20/68 from the Greek (30 Trips box). If you act, as you think...
I think the site looks great, and it won't be long before most of the old guard return.
I'll be wearing mine tonight for Bob and Wolf Bros. in Santa Barbara. Mrs. Big and I will be in row G, in case any of you folks want to meet up!
....im sure it'll take some getting used to, but at first glance, I'm not much of a fan. But the only thing that doesn't change is change.... where's my avatar?🤔. Where's Dave's Picks? 🤔. Why is the background so white? 🤔. We do have emojis tho, so that's cool 👌✌️
I'm sure it will get better, but you have to open up new windows to get to more than 10 comments, then it's just 10 per page, not helpful when you can't check in every day. Also, the Dave's Picks are the main reason I visit. The box sets are one or two per year, but Dave's is the main conversational hub. Disappointing that that page is non-existent so far, and a release is about to hit, how am I expected to know whether to love it or hate without the discussion that will invite vitriol and passion over 42 year old tapes? But seriously, monotonous and exhausting though those conversations can be, it's also a hive of musical recommendations, reading recommendations, and occasionally awesome stories of Dead shows, and/or synchonicities. Any update on when that gets added?
I could complain about a few things, but everyone else seems to have covered it. It is definitely way too white. I liked the old Deadnet page with the space and planets to click on, that was a nice one to look at, this one, not so much.
Hopefully, another ten years on this site. I'm not going anywhere except out for a smoke.
