    If the clue fits…

    I’m thinking based on the clue offered for Dave’s 50, specifically the reference to “show (shows…?)” and the timing being right,… leads me to believe the show is the Watkins Glen summer jam and the bonus disc is the sound check. I did some quick math at archive.org and it looks like the show would fit on three discs with about 15 min to spare, and that the sound check would almost fit on one, with the need for last song on the other discs.

    As is well known, there are Owsley tapes for both days and even though widely available (in so so quality) already, this show deserves the official release, plangent process and all. Here’s hoping I’m right on this guess.

    Is it possible to actually have them release a high res cover art file for DP? I have been trying to find that for the latest 48 and well it seems to not be around. Thx

    Frost 10/10/82, I second that pick

    Ill second that pick, and add 10/9/82 for a 2 show release. Both shows were a knockout. 1982, the best year at the Frost. Put it together with 83 & 85 and you would have a great box set.

    Frost Amphitheater, Palo Alto, CA - 10/10/1982

    Figured I might as well put in a vote.

    I would like to recommend the 10/10/1982 for a release.This was my 20th show and I feel it is worthy of a chance at an official release if the source material exists to be turned into a CD that meets Dave's Picks or commercial release requirements.

    Having been there for both shows (9th and 10th) I do know that the playing was quite good both days. The band really seemed to be dialed in by the 10th. A couple of my buddies that were living in San Francisco at the time had snuck into the theater (either the day before or early morning) and wrote "Pummel Us, Phil!" on the stage right about where he would typically stand. Not sure if Phil saw the words or not, but I can tell you he did pummel us both days (check out the Morning Dew from the 9th for a taste of what the 10th had in store). This was also the last time I saw Phil playing a 4 string bass. By my next show (12/26/1982) he had moved to the 6 string.

    All songs are great renditions with some highlights of Loser, Far From Me, Looks Like Rain, China Cat Sunflower > I Know You Rider, Playing In The Band > Crazy Fingers > Lost Sailor > Saint Of Circumstance > Touch Of Grey. Pretty awesome end of first set, then second set before drums. For me the whole show was great and those are a sample of how well they played in California on a sunny day.

    Thanks for any consideration,
    CorkyO

    Dave's pix #48!?

    💀⚡️🥀 I was just awaiting a Dave's Subscription & speculating the next release while looking at my stat sheet I made a few years ago of Dicks Picks & Daves saves when I first subscribed. Anyways I figure 1988 & `89 are little represented in either series as well being only a few shows from the GD "Download series" and only seen on box sets or "Without a Net" in 1990.

    Anyways, so I went show shopping and came up with 6~25~88 @ Buckeye Music Center, Buckeye lake, Ohio. A good single summer show in town with a nice array of classic hits AND some choice cuts from new material soon to be released on a later studio album, 1989's Built To Last.✌️😸

    P.S.~1982 is also a seldom seen official release year.

    Man, this would be nice to see released! One of my all time favorites over the years. Both sets are on fire...Let it Grow>Deal to close the first set is like no other. 2nd set Estimated>Franklins's is one of just a couple of that combo, gorgeous transition. Runner up to this show is 7/10/81. The 2nd set is as good as it looks.

    4/17/71, can't believe this one has not been released yet. My guess is either soon individually or better yet as part of an April '71 box, or series of boxes a la May 77, Spring 90, and (hopefully) June 76.

    I am really digging this show 6/10/1973. I had never heard the complete show, and am hoping it would be released in its entirety. I can image some copy write issues but it would be a winner.

    Good morning, fellow rockers!!!

    2/9/73 is clearly worthy of release, but if I had to pick only one show, it would be 12/5/71, provided a soundboard has been returned to the vault..........

    I am not unaware of the saying that more tears have been shed over wishes granted than wishes denied.......

    Rock on!

Portland is my favorite city, and has been home for 10 years now. I am very interested in The Dead's history of playing here. I bought the digital download of a show which I think was in '68 or '69 in Portland, but would like to know of more shows here and listen to them. This show also looks like it had a good setlist. No idea how the playing was that night, however. If it's good quality, would make for an excellent Dave's Picks.

Dave's Picks has been an almost exclusively 1970's series (albeit with a toe dips into 1969 and 1980). Hope this is not heresy but I have kind of had enough. '72 and '77 WERE REALLY GOOD. Check! Got it. The Spring of 1990 was definitely not the only great latter day period. I hope to see some of the great 80's and 90's stuff next year. Thanks.

4/1/91 with the Playing from 3/31/91 as filler seeing how the Samson>Eyes is on the 9/25/91 Dick's Picks. 7/2/88 because 7/3/88 is in the box.

maybe on the whole the sound quality isn't as fine as on many of the early 70s tapes, but the music...oooooh, the music of those days! transcendence. here's hoping for some of the early greats on future remasters. 10/12/68 at the avalon ballroom maybe?

Love the whole Oct-Dec 71 tour. Would particularly like to see one of the shows from December, where both Keith is nice and prominent in the mix (his piano playing on this tour was awesome), and Pigpen is back with the band as well. Particularly 12/04, 12/05 or 12/15.

These shows were excellent. A few weeks after the death of Pig, the set lists were strong and the playing was typical of the spring 73' sound. A lot of Wake material and some beautiful Dark Stars. Dave's Picks 16 was 1 week after these gems. Would really love to see 1 or both shows slated for a release.3/21 has a setlist to rival any other and the Dark Star > Eyes was phenomenal. Any thoughts? Anyone delve into or have experiences with these nights?

The first set is very good, the second set is spectacular: Samson and Delilah It Must Have Been the Roses Estimated Prophet Franklin's Tower drums The Other One Stella Blue Sugar Magnolia This Stella Blue is my all-time favorite. It is diaphanous in the literal sense of being light, delicate and translucent. It takes a while for Jerry to solo his way out of a really powerful TOO (featuring a few Phil bombs) and transition into SB with a few clunkers on the way, but they only make it all the more wondrous when he finally gets there so plaintive it sends shivers up my spine. Even if you don't release it, give it a listen. You'll be glad you did. Why not do a Stanley Theatre box of 11-30-79, 12-01-79, 3-5-81 and 3-6-81? I can personally attest to their exceptional quality 'cause I was there for three of 'em and I've got a pristine 12-01-79 on cassette.

For Jan. '78, Nov. and Dec '78. All contain segments of quite fantastic and unique playing. See: 1-13-78 Dancin' thru Wharf Rat, 1-15-78 Terrapin>Playing in the Band. I have to delve deeper into November, but Dave has played cool examples on JOTW and Taper's (11-18). As for December, I really like the run from 12-12 thru 12-19. Not sure what kind of board sources exist for some of these tapes, as 1-15 and 12-16 I have only seen as audience tapes I think.

I'd really be curious to know if there's anything left in the Vault that isn't available - even in low quality - online (legally). Are there hidden shows from '66, for instance? Or do we basically know all that was recorded and are now waiting for official releases so that we get high(er) quality versions of shows we may already own?

Either 88 or 89 would be fine with me.I personally only saw 6 or 8 shows in the 80s. All were really good except Minneapolis 1986 in metrodome. PS..interesting analysis in your link. Marketers might say the 70s are over penetrated, economists might just point to demand-driven availability.

Seems like it should fall around the following: 1. Is there a complete, high-quality version in the vault? 2. Does the show already circulate in high quality? 3. Was there something exceptional about the show compared to others in the same time period? 4. Has this time period already been well represented in the stream of releases, or is it lacking? Certainly some time periods will merit a larger number of releases. 5. From a sales standpoint, is there a perceived desire for a particular release? This one gets rather subjective.

I wish they would release a few shows from 94/95. At the very least a 3 disc compilation from the last year of the band.

94 and 95 were included in 30 Trips.Some people broke up the box and sold the shows individually. Supposedly the late 90’s were the worst sellers. So, you may be able to find those shows on eBay or elsewhere for a good price. But, what about Gainesville?

I'd like to see virtual versions of Dave's Picks ,for instance release the 2017 Dave's Picks virtual this year (say at Christmas time) then release 2018 disc around Christmas 2019 or a year after the cd's so people that have subscriptions and or buy the actual disc have exclusivity for a year, starting with the 1st year of course :)

I don't understand why they didn't realease "June '73" instead of "Pacific Northwest '73-'74". RFK 6/9-10/73 along with the West Coast shows starting in Vancouver on the 22. Would have been much mo betta.

Having grown up taping shows in California in the early 70s, it has struck me for a long time how empty the discography is (Dick's & Dave's Picks, and other releases) for the second half of 1970. Nothing after 5/15/70. And this has some of the most amazing music the Dead played.

Yes, I know that many legendary shows (ex. Capitol Theater, Rochester, etc) only exist in audience, but there are a lot of soundboards - at least of which are complete. Others could be put together for a release - ex. 9/18,19,20/1970...
We have other stretches of time with many releases (spring 77) and they are good ones, but this key era in the Dead's musical history is sadly missing big time.

11/19/72 Hofheinz round 2, with Dark Star with Philo Stomp. If not slated for possible inclusion in a box, would love to see this be DaP 33.

2/9/73, how has this not been released?

8/4/76, see previous note. Really wanna see this be the next 1976 release. An amazing performance that is hotter than most of the more laid back June and July shows. The Help Slip Frank is an all timer, up there with Buffalo for sure. The existing recordings have the best Phil sound I think I've ever heard, and he has an amazing night thundering along.
