    Golden era Grateful Dead in the most golden city in the Golden State? Yes, DAVE'S PICKS VOLUME 46 features the complete unreleased show from the Hollywood Palladium, Los Angeles, 9/9/72. Loosen that tie, this ain't a red carpet rodeo - it's the after party that legends are made of. Consistently excellent from start to finish, this West Coast groove showcases tracks that would soon debut on EUROPE '72, solo material from both Jerry and Bob, a riveting iteration of "China>Rider," a couple of Chuck Berry doozies, a bonkers 35-plus "Other One" that hits all the psychedelic highs, and wraps up with a "Casey Jones"/"Sugar Magnolia"/"One More Saturday Night" finale that'll have you wondering why you wore a tie in the first place. Hooray for Hollywood, indeed.
     
    Limited to 25,000 numbered copies, this release was recorded by Owsley Stanley and has been mastered to HDCD specs by Jeffrey Norman at Mockingbird Mastering. Oh, and it ships next week so you'll wanna grab a copy while you can.

    Live recordings - an abundance!

    Thinking about it, King Crimson have also had quite a few of their live shows released over the years, too. Mainly tucked away in era defining box sets.

    Yes, they have released a bunch of shows, maybe even a few tours.

    Fantastic band to see live!!!

    I was reading the latest issue of Mojo magazine which has an article about Pearl Jam. They have, apparently, issued around 500 official bootlegs of their concerts. Who knew?

    I agree!

    It's truly amazing, and you're right, no other band can provide this kind of enjoyment for fans, or build a legacy like this.

    I was a little late to the party. I started getting tapes in 1988 from my older brother, but didn't make a show until 1991.

    I always thought more would come out, especially after One From The Fault was released, but i never imagined it would be like this!!

    A lucky bunch, we are!!

    It's truly astonishing when you stop and think about all the live shows that have been released over the last 30 years. I never expected all this when I started collecting their official releases back in the 70's. No other rock band could stand such a schedule.

    BigBrownie - Estimated > Franklins > Jam from 12/4/79 was filler on DaP 31 Uptown 12/3/79. The Shakedown that opened Set II on 12/4 appears to have a gap in SBD so not usable. (Edit - oops, my mistake, Shakedown opened Set II on 12/5).

    I'm all in on this pick from the Kiel. Completely unfamiliar with it but I know that I really dig Fall '79. There are some very favorable reviews on archive, including one from the "legendary" capn doubledose. I know DaP 31 doesn't get much love, but it was my second show and its always a fun listen for me - spun it on a drive just last week. Just gonna say that the Jack-A-Roe is my favorite outside of those early '77 versions - Jerry's solo is exquisite. It is a puzzle that 12/1 hasn't been released but so be it. I mean, what about Gainesville? One thing's for sure, basically every release is a surprise to me. Sometime its something that's on my wish list, sometimes not, but always a surprise.

got to the store at 6,,,, store opened at 7. Line around the building,,,, odd for this place. Get in line and ask some guy why all the people,,,, taylor swift dropped some album today! Most were in line for that! So guy said he was second in line and he got there 9 PM the night before!

Got what I wanted,,,, 5/7/77 boston garden, JGB - how sweet it is and miles davis' on the corner.

Now I need to find a copy of 5/9/77, Buffalo.

At the risk (risque) of deletion, may I humbly suggest checking out the original cover art for Mom's Apple Pie. You young folk would not know it, its surely an age thing, being a 1972 release, so to speak, Ohio band. The cover soon had a censored second version with humor. Hope we are all over 15 here, if not entirely grown up.

37 years ago I was up in Berkeley to see the Good ole Grateful Dead kick off the show with Box of Rain followed by Visions of Johanna, what a cool start to a show!

That looks okay, to me. It wouldn't entice me to buy it, and wouldn't have at the time - but it seems inoffensive enough. I've never heard of this band before. Maybe I should cehck them out.
One I have always disliked intensely is the cover to Silverhead's "16 and Savaged." from about 1973. No one else seems to think there's anything wrong with it, and it adorns all the reissues - but to me it suggests the worst.

I've been listening to whatever 1973 albums I have around the house over the last month or so. And some are much better than I remember -Houses of the Holy for example - and some are much worse - Quadrophenia for example. Some of those lyrics wouldn't be considered acceptable today. I'm surprised they ever were. Horrible.

One really good one is "Innervisions" by Stevie Wonder. And I have just played the first cd of Dave 16 - 3/28/73. Great country rock, full of energy and joie de vivre. One of the best covers, too.

Silverhead cover...truly unfortunate. Ew.

I love Motorhead, but could do without the cover to Sacrifice.

I recall seeing the cover to Warrant's Cherry Pie album back in the day. Bruh...

Millie Jackson's back to the sh*t cover....noooope. (saw it in a list of worst album covers back in the past)

They knew EXACTLY what they were doing.

That scorpions cover...ick. Never liked the band, anyway.

What a world.

THANK GOD FOR THE GRATEFUL DEAD.

Yes indeed, Thank goodness for the Grateful Dead!! Had a lot of windshield time lately, was a pleasure, mostly, to dial in channel 23 GD jukebox and let the tunes fall where they may, listen to Big Steve a bit. As a college radio station DJ back in the early 70s, album cover art was a thing, some promos were blank, album covers were big enough to allow artistic endeavor, there was testing of "limits", Tipper Gore stuff, Sticky Fingers, Over-nite Sensation etc. The cover of Blind Faith never bothered, it's art, provocative maybe, perhaps surrealism. Now the lyrics to Mexicali Blues, Bob has surely been taken to task by a few for that. So my question is, is Jack Straw a cowboy song?

My wife gifted me with Dead and Company tickets for Citi Field in June. I've never seen them mainly due to tickets being crazy cash anymore! So, I've been getting excited as of late, mainly to seeing Mickey and Billy together on drums only to just discover Billy won't be doing the tour. The message said his health was ok, but something about creative difference maybe??? Oh well, I'll make the best of it

After seeing availability stretch longer and longer with these, decided to take it easy and just head out when I felt like it. Luckily, I'm in Boston, so several options. Chose a shop in Natick this time, and ended up getting the last copy they had, though they told me they could order more if there was a demand. They has it priced reasonably at $125. Newbury charged $155 last year, so was definitely using them as a last resort, and didn't need them. The cover and back seem even better than other two triumvirate shows of ear,y May. But then my Cornell is the second pressing, which was made more muted. Wonder why the Jerry Band and Jerry Garcia vinyl boxes are even less expensive? The JGB Hampton set was there and was 90 bucks, also 5 LPs. Also curious at the production run on this being 11,000, but I saw one marketing blurb that started out saying 9,000 then finished the blurb by saying "limited to 12,000". Just found it interesting, wonder if they were debating what number to go with and had copy written for different ideas? Will have to wait for another time to listen to it. But nice to have the set now, plus Dave's 1. Now hoping this Fall's RSD release is 3/2/69 to complete THAT set.

Scored a copy of Captain Beefheart's I'm Gonna Play What I Wanna Play in the RSD vinyl edition, which was the only thing I was really interested in this year. No muss, no fuss, in and outta there in like 10 minutes. The secret, for me, is going to this punk rock record store in the shitty part of town where nobody is going camp out overnight or even line up an hour early, and none of the clientele is much interested in the Dead, the ABB, jazz, Captain Beefheart or any of the other stuff I'm usually looking for. I can show up at noon and have my pick.

The also had a copy of the GD Boston '77 show which I was tempted to grab, but I decided to stick with my rule about "no double dipping," since I have that show in the Get Shown the Light box. There were also some jazz titles I was very tempted by: Eric Dolphy, Bill Evans, a Chet Baker I cam thisclose to grabbing, but I passed. Vinyl is so freaking expensive these days.

You were afraid you'd be the devil's red wife
But it's all right, God dug your dance
And would have you young and in his harem
Dress you the way he wants cause he never had a doll
'Cause everybody made him a boy
And God didn't think to ask his preference
You can bring your dress and your favorite dog
And your husband's cane, and your old spotted hog
'Cause in this lifetime you got my human gets me blue

....first thing I noticed? Flower sellers everywhere. T-minus three hours til 🐟🐠.
And yes. Vinyl is expensive.
Knights were up 4-1 and now OT?? WTF?!
Bummer about Kreutzmann.
Edit. Vegas pulled it out. Let's do this hockey thing.

Just looked at the setlist so far, and wow. Phish phans are very happy in Hollywood right now. They played a second set for a first set. Here's a fun game, I'll try to transpose the setlist into a Dead setlist:
Ghost> David Bowie, Esther> Harry Hood> Meat> Split Open & Melt, Leaves> Squirming Coil
Would become
Playing in the Band> Help> Slipknot!> Franklin's, Crazy Fingers> Eyes of the World ('74 style)> Hey Pocky Way (except an original)> Let It Grow, late era ballad> Brokedown Palace with a piano solo to close the set

That's an approximation of what he saw tonight. Meat was a hard one to choose, as it's a funky song that is kind of obscure, but also not obscure to Phish phans, if that makes sense. Not frequently played, but always welcome, which I imagine was similar to the Meters classic.

....Phish fucks. This was my 50th Phish show since 1994, and immediately jumped to into my top five. Heater after heater. It was like they fired up the DeLorean and went back to 1998. Outstanding flow, intense face melting jams and the lighting rig just gets better and better. Mike blew his bass up during First Tube and had to call for backup. I almost feel sorry for tomorrow's show having to follow this.
SET 2: Chalk Dust Torture (23 min!) > Twist > 2001 > Sneakin' Sally Through the Alley > Back on the Train, A Life Beyond The Dream, First Tube

ENCORE: Run Like an Antelope!!

This show is what fans call "special". All but two songs were type 1.0, or pre-2000.

The Hollywood Bowl is special too. It almost got destroyed.

I highly recommend everyone here listens to the Chalkdust > Twist if nothing else. Outstanding stuff.
I can't sleep.

I’m going to have to set my satellite radio to the Phish station (29 - I think), and find out what the phuss is about. Sounds like an epic show, VGuy.

No need to be quiet. That was a big-time victory.

The Leafs showed a lot of fortitude. As I said last week, maybe what they needed was a good ass kicking in game one. I don’t want to get overly excited, but the Leafs of old would never have won that game. I continue to see similarities to the 2004 Red Sox. Auston Matthews, getting into a scrap reminds me of Jason Varitek defending his pitcher against Rodriguez and the brawl that ensued. I remain cautiously optimistic.

Jack - I really like the analogy to the 2004 Red Sox, you’ve really nailed it. An absolute thrill ride last night. Tampa has championship pedigree, so I’m not getting ahead of myself, by any means. But…

Sports and music provide real in the moment thrills (see VGuy’s report on last night’s show), and if the two are intertwined - magic!

....last year when I went to TBB at Red Rocks, Subarus dominated the Denver streets.
LA? This is Tesla country. I just find that interesting.
Beautiful weather today. Getting ready to walk to Amoeba Records and kill an hour or so. RIP my credit card??
Edit. While the show last night was indeed off the charts, leaving to walk back to my hotel, I was reminded of the dark side of the scene. A quarter mile stretch of nothing but hissing nitrous tanks. Sad really. Those days are behind me and couldn't believe so many people sucking on balloons while standing on pavement. Bad idea. I should know. My dumb ass cracked the back of my skull doing that in the lot at the Irvine '88 Dead shows. Swore off the stuff after that.
Fingers crossed for a Slave To The Traffic Light and a Lizards tonight.

The thing my security personnel daughter complained about when Phish came to town

May your setlist wishes come true, Vguy

Love the '72 Palladium release. So many classic shows there... Keith and the X-pensive Winos and tons more.

It snows in Denver, in fact it did yesterday and will again later this week. Subarus get around in that stuff (unless there's a native Californian or Texan behind the wheel). Ouch!

Go Avs!

Yes they are. 40 years in and that band can some how still do amazing and new things while still keeping it familiar. I caught the Set 2 opener last night - great stuff. I am still buzzing from the Berkeley show on 4/17. A second set with 4 songs highlighted by a Tweezer that clocks in at the 43 minute mark only to go into a 19 minute Simple. Now just because a song is long does not make good, but Phish can do a lot in a 43 minute or 19 minute space for that matter. The Rock and Roll to close that 2nd set was high energy too. They seem to be at the top of their game or close to it. I got Phish coming to my hometown of the Burgh for 2 nights this summer which I am going to both shows.

Plus Dead and CO will be coming by as well, which I am going to see simply because it is my home town. I think that band has been playing about 2 years or so too long. I appreciate the effort though and I don't think their playing is terrible. Yet I feel like they got too refined when compared to the earlier efforts. I feel like any semblance of an X-factor in their shows is gone these days. Just me feelings on it - things may differ with others I 'm sure. Oddly Dead & Co will be sans Billy this entire tour due to what has been labeled as "creative differences". Seems awfully fishy to me.

I am also making the trek to Blossom to see The Tedeschi Trucks Band. I think they are top notch. If anyone has not heard their recent shows, they have been playing some great music. This summer is looking to be a great one for shows for me.

Last 5 just because:
Pink Floyd 3/13/72
Led Zeppelin 5/21/75
Pink Floyd 4/29/70
Led Zeppelin 9/28/71
Phish 7/29/03

....but No Quarter is the exception. What an awesome couple of shows. Thank you guys.
Was in a higher up section tonight. More space and met a lot of incredible people. The air was heavy with mind-altering vibrations. Just the way I like it.
Oh. Got my Slave To The Traffic Light. See the city, see the zoo.

I was there for the Clash/English Beat too....my buddy and I were first in line for entrance and we made a bee line for dead center up against the barricade....during the show a bunch of surf Nazis barrelled their way through the crowd shoving and pushing people out of the way so they could get upfront...needless to say they had a little trouble trying to shove me and my pal from our spot...insults were traded (this while "London Calling" was blaring) and my pal dropped one of them which got the bouncers between the stage front and barricade involved...we told them that the guy slowly getting up off ground had talked a buncha racist crap (which he had) and that we were just defending ourselves...these guys were all Black and big of course like offensive linemen...they reached over the barricade and grabbed the offender and tossed him out of the building...they looked at his buddies and they all laughed and said no problem here ...it took all of three minutes or so...a couple of weeks or so earlier I had been at the Greek in Berkeley for GD so I had some refreshments left over for the Clash show ...

....time to check out my Amoeba Records haul. Gave myself a hundred dollar limit. Before I knew it I had seven records in hand. Narrowed it down to Yo La Tengo's I Can Hear The Heart Beating As One, The Animals Retrospective and King Gizzard's Ice, Death, Planets, Lungs, Mushrooms and Lava.
The packaging is especially nice on the KG one.
VGK on soon.

According to my blues approved calendar, today would have been Albert King's 100th birthday. "Born Under A Bad Sign" surely ranks as one of the best albums of the 60's. And while I never much cared for the much lauded "Live Wire-Blues Power" album , he made many more live albums after that one that are fizzing with energy.

Trying to listen and learn more about Phish, a band I’m a “bit” out of the loop on. Today, they were playing stuff from their Saturday show in Hollyrock - “Harry Hood” - and pretty interesting stuff. This calls for a deeper dive. Is their recent Gorge ‘98 a two thumbs up recommendation from those that are Phish Phriendly? I see it or on sale for a decent price, for two complete shows/5 discs.

Oro - Nice to see the team spirit!

winning last night

I didn't watch the game...my son and I finished season 4 of Better Call Saul (a very high-quality show. Not cheerful by any means, but extremely well done.)

but the K won.

back to Colorado...

These playoffs will drag on for weeks, brah
