    Europe '72:
    The Complete Recordings


    Hey now! Due to overwhelming demand, surprising even those of us with huge faith in the Europe '72 project, the entire limited edition run of 7,200 boxed sets has sold out in less than 4 days. We thank you beyond words for your support and belief in this unprecedented and wonderful release.

    After lengthy discussions, we've decided we don't want to deprive anyone of this music, some of the finest the Grateful Dead ever performed. Of course, we're keeping to our promise that the boxed set and all of its accouterments will not be made available beyond these 7,200 boxed sets (and wait until you see the case in which the music is housed, the hard-bound coffee-table book, plus all of the other cool surprises we've been unearthing!). But, we're going to offer just the music, all 22 shows, more than 60 CDs, more than 70 hours of music, each show housed in its own packaging, for the same price as the boxed set, $450 including domestic shipping. Although perhaps not as cool as the boxed set, the bottom line is that the most important aspect of Europe '72: The Complete Recordings is going to be made available to all, the music.

    Because you dared dream this might happen one day… Because you went down to the Gypsy Woman and offered up your first-born to try to make it happen… Because there are enough passionate Dead Heads at Rhino/GD who thought it might be cool for this to happen… It’s happening! Coming in September is a gargantuan, beautifully designed EUROPE ’72 MEGA-BOX SET containing ALL 22 SHOWS of what is arguably the greatest tour the Grateful Dead ever played, on a whopping 60+ DISCS (over 70 hours of music!). Bet you didn’t see that comin’!

    Really, at this point we probably don’t need to lay on too much hype about how wonderful the music is: Chances are, if you’re even considering buying a copy of this stunning box, you already know how amazing the Dead’s tour of Europe in April and May of 1972 was. To review briefly, though, the Dead’s first tour outside of North America took them to all sorts of historic and unusual venues in England, Denmark, West Germany, France, Holland and even tiny Luxembourg. Many members of the Dead “family” came along on what was really an extended working vacation that was designed to both expose the Dead to new audiences and also reward the band for their unlikely conquest of America during the preceding two years. As a hedge against the costs of the nearly two-month trip, the Dead’s label, Warner Bros., paid for the band to lug around a 16-track recorder to capture the entire tour… and we’re glad they did!

    This was a band at the top of its game, still ascending in the wake of three straight hit albums — Workingman’s Dead, American Beauty and the live Grateful Dead (“Skull & Roses”). It had been a year since the lineup had gone to its single-drummer configuration, six months since Keith Godchaux had been broken in as the group’s exceptional pianist, and this marked the first tour to feature Donna Godchaux as a member of the touring band. There was a ton on new, unreleased material that came into the repertoire in the fall of ’71 (after “Skull & Roses” was out) and during the spring of ’72, including “Tennessee Jed,” “Jack Straw,” “Mexicali Blues,” “He’s Gone,” “Comes A Time,” “Ramble on Rose,” “One More Saturday Night,” “Black-Throated Wind,” “Looks Like Rain” and Pigpen’s “Chinatown Shuffle,” “The Stranger (Two Souls in Communion)” and “Mr. Charlie.” (Sadly, this was Pigpen’s final tour.) All those future classics were interspersed with songs from the aforementioned “hit” albums—such as “Uncle John’s Band,” “Brokedown Palace,” “Cumberland Blues,” “Casey Jones,” “Sugar Magnolia,” “Bertha,” “Not Fade Away,” et al — and then were topped off by loads of big jamming numbers — the Europe ’72 tour produced spectacular versions of “Dark Star,” “The Other One” “Playing in the Band,” “Truckin’,” “China Cat Sunflower” > “I Know You Rider,” “Good Lovin’,” “Lovelight” and even the early Pig chestnut “Caution.” And that’s leaving out a truckload of other tunes, too! There wasn’t a clunker show in the bunch, and many are acknowledged today as classics. No doubt you already have some favorites.

    Through the years, there have been a few releases of material from the Europe tour—starting with the 3-album Europe ’72 which knocked our socks off in the fall of that year, and followed many years later by material from a pair of German shows and the fantastic 4-CD Stepping Out, culled from the group’s eight shows in England. Incredibly, though, only one full show from the tour has come out previously: the excellent 4/24 concert in Dusseldorf, Germany, released as Rockin’ the Rhein in 2004.

    Until now, that is. Jeffrey Norman, who has been the primary mixer of Dead archival multi-track material for the past 15 years (Fillmore West ’69, Ladies and Gentlemen…, Rockin’ the Rhein, Nightfall of Diamonds, etc.) has spent many months toiling over the 16-track masters from the tour, and will continue working on the mixes through the Winter and Spring, employing the high-tech Plangent Processes transfer and restoration tools, trying to get every show to sound “just exactly perfect” (as Bob Weir says) for this release. You might think you’ve heard that intense “Dark Star” > “Sugar Mag” > “Caution” from Copenhagen, but I guarantee you’ve never heard it sound this alive! Mastering to HDCD specs is two-time Grammy-winning engineer David Glasser of Airshow Mastering. Needless to say, all the songs that turned up on previous Europe compilations will be appear in their proper show contexts, and in the case of songs from the Europe ’72 album, without overdubs that were added later (where possible).

    The packaging is, as you might expect, first rate. Each show is its own Digipak, with its own liner notes by top Dead scholars (including David Gans, Steve Silberman, and Nicholas Meriwether) and attendees of some of the concerts, and many never-before-seen photos. Additionally, there is an enormous book worthy of coffee table treatment featuring hundreds more photos and a comprehensive essay by yours truly (Blair Jackson). The box will also contain other memorabilia and ephemera from the tour.

    A rough sketch of the potential packaging.
    Check back soon for more product images.

    At $450, this clearly will not be a box for everyone. In fact, this individually numbered boxed set will be limited to orders placed with a maximum of 7,200 boxes produced. As a special bonus, the first 3,000 orders will receive a personalized copy. Due to the huge manufacturing costs (wait 'til you see it! We're doing something unlike any other boxed set release ever! It's exceptional!!), we need to hit 3,000 sales before we even go into production. If we don't reach 3,000 by April 1st, the boxed set won't be able to happen. This isn't a gun-to-your-head sales pitch. Rather, we want to be open with you about the realities of this release's massive scope and ambition.

    -->

    So dig deep, raid the penny jar, take a weekend job at Jack-in-the-Box, beg your kindly ol’ grandma for some of your inheritance early… Yes, it’s an extravagance, but jeez, you (or your loved one) deserve it! This is way cool.

......and not worth killing oneself over. There is already a bunch of music out there, much of it for free. Music as an artistic form of expression, is intended for entertainment purposes, and in some cases, opens the mind into a deeper level of consciousness......Well maybe Lady Gaga fans take themselves a little too seriously, but I digress.....Lighten up. The world is full of tragidy, misery, pain and despair. Listening to music is one way to forget about the bullshit for a minute. Get over yourself.

I think everybody misunderstood my missing jerry garcia and wanting to hear him play again, which of course isn't meant to be literal...somewhere i know jerry garcia is playing a guitar, if it's in the great beyond or he's just turning 16 or so somewhere else on earth remains to be seen or known...but it's interesting if i were in that state that i'd be thrown off the site, some great humanitarians out there...but i do see there's alot of kind grateful dead fans and i'll remember that in the future not all fans of groups or artists display that kind of kindness or sense of sharing amongst each other, the generiousity in terms of favors has been amazing amoung dead fans...isn't being dead what it's all about if you listen to the grateful dead...this is a bad who is grateful to be dead? of course they didn't mean it figuratively either since none of them were dead when the band started in 1965.

I came to thinking that Tony does have a unique way of expressing himself. Self-hate really is a *normal* human expression, that in most instances, really does not get articulated at all. Tony more than likely is a great guy 99.99% of the time. Probably would have enjoyed being at any show or shows of the Europe 72 tour in person. I am looking forward to listening to the complete Bickershaw Festival show (May 7, 1972), because my multi-generational copies on both cassette & cd-r, lack the dymanics of a well mixed multitrack recording. I wait patiently.

Your forgiven...actually some of the cassette tapes sound pretty good when cds came out, something with a sweet sound, but when dicks picks started really coming and road trips i kind of didn't go to those anymore...but they weren't bad and i kind of miss those days trading and talking to people via real mail and e-mails...now it's so easy to get a show if you really want one and the semi-offical releases make it hard too...when europe 72 comes out i know i'll be busy for a long long time...without trying to be a good soldier or fan europe 72 has to be their best period for song content and it being the full band's last hurrah...although they continued to be really amazing through 1981 or so...beyond that they were still great but in my opinion 1969-1973 being the tip of the iceberg with 1974-1981 still pretty good but not good as the other period...1982-1995 what can i say there were alot of great songs covered, not to mention alot of great covers spread out throughout, not to be dismissed by any means...even their last show (i think) at soldiers field has "so many roads" that's a song not to be missed...so we all know how good they were as a band of many types of music...eg AC/DC was considered a great rock band but they didn't play a huge variety of types of music.

I got his Garcia/Hunter tribute album a few months ago and had read about this show so I was happy they've decided to release it. Pretty cool of 'em to put it up for streaming too, I'm all about immediate gratification LOL. You guys get the coolest little Rex shows out there, I'm so jealous :P

Not to change the subject but shouldn't a Road Trip be coming out soon I know 1 or 2 of the Road Trip releases this year will have a bonus disc...i missed the last 2 bonus discs and then they stopped making them for every release...which isn't something totally heartbreaking but it's nice if you can get it kind of thing

Road Trips, Volume 4, Number 3, is scheduled for a May 2011 release. The dead.net announcement should be in early April. Hopefully it should start shipping in early May 2011. If you are on the subscription plan, I believe that this issue will have the bonus disc. I'd like to see a 1973 full show release.

...then how about another Feb '73 release, or Spring, for a change? I think the fall->December corridor has been well acknowledged with releases. Dick's 28 is one of my desert island Dead discs, how 'bout some more from this creative burst of a tour? Or if it's Fall, maybe one of those Sept (?) shows where they premiered Weather Report complete with the horn section? That would be different.

"Bonus Disc, featuring previously unreleased highlights from the 12/06/73 show in Cleveland, Ohio. Mastered in HDCD, this top-notch collection includes "China Cat Sunflower>I Know You Rider," "Dark Star," "Eyes of the World," and "Greatest Story Ever Told".

I too would be interested to know if the video that's 'unearthed' will be included in the 'complete' set. I could understand if it were not included in the 'music only' edition, but should it not be included in the 'complete' edition? After all, it would an important 'accouterment' (sic) in my opinion. Well, here's to hoping that this will be a bona fide complete representation of the Europe '72 adventure.

If you own a deluxe edition of the Grateful Dead Scrapbook by Ben Fong-Torres, the DVD contains "Hurts Me Too" from 4/17/72. Perhaps the inclusion of that video & others made the price rather high. It still sells at dead.net store for $75.A nice book.

Thanks borncrosseyed. It's been awhile but I think that's the video I saw, the Danish TV broadcast. It was a boot, and I thought it would under the TV broadcast ppl's copyright. I haven't seen the Scrapbook and/or DVD; I wonder why they just included the one song? Good to know some of it's been released with an official GD stamp though, that's encouraging. And as long as I'm wondering, why the heck haven't TPTB re-released The Grateful Dead Movie, especially now on Blu-ray? And the "Views from the Vault" for that matter, but mostly The Movie! Gotta be enough of a market for that one.

From what I understand, GD Productions does not own the rights to the video of the two shows that were broadcast in Europe (4/17/72 - TV From Tivoli & 4/21/72 - Beat Club) I would, like most eveybody else, would like to see those two shows get released on video someday, soon.

How do you know that GD doesn't own or hasn't been able to obtain the rights to those shows?Just wonderin.... Copies circulating of the Tivoli first set are some of the best bootleg videos around, both playing-wise and visually. IMO. I read on another site that the other half of that show is sitting in the TV stations 'vault'. Wouldn't that whole show be something to view! Haven't seen the video from the Beat Club, so I can't comment on that. The Truth is realized in an instant, the act is practiced step by step.

I am assuming that the GD Audio & Film/Video Vault does not contain their own copyrighted video of 04/17/72. If you have a copy of The Deadhead's Taping Compendium, Vol. 1, there is a Video & Film Guide that mentions this date. More importantly, one of the compilers of this book interviews a "researching archive consultant", an archivist, who explains this date in some detail.

regarding that 4/17/72 Tivoli show:"More of this concert exists in the Danish televison station's vaults." Man I would dearly love to see that second set. The first set is a delight! (currently available as a DVD vine at the Vineyard.) Free the full 4/17/72 show video!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The Truth is realized in an instant, the act is practiced step by step.

You did it! You really did it!

I seem to be forever expressing my gratitute to you guys, but, well, here goes again..Thank you!

...for those keeping track ;). This is only 1944 hours, which somehow doesn't seem like so long, but it's also 116.640 minutes which sounds like a freaking long time. Don't get me started on the seconds. So I'm reading this book called "The Elegant Universe", which discusses the concepts of current theories of physics, Einstein's theories of special and general relativity, quantum mechanics, string theory and whatnot. Trippy stuff. Turns out that velocity, acceleration and movement through spacetime are all related such that how quickly you are moving through some dimensions affect your rate of motion through the other dimensions...so if you are moving very very fast through space your rate of motion through time actually slows down. Seriously. The speed of light is the limiting factor; time stands still for the photons! The converse (inverse? I forget) is also true: the more slowly you move through the spatial dimensions the faster you move through time. Sit very very still, and September will get here sooner ;) Cheers, and enjoy the rest of your weekend!

My CC on file for the E72 ltd ed was compromised in the recent PlayStation Network attack. So I called today to update my info and the gentleman said they would be doing a round on validations on the billing info in July/August and getting in touch with people who need an update. Guess I'll keep an eye out for an email or a phone call about that. At least until mid-August at which time I'll be calling again...

    besides looking at the resale sites, are the All the music edition of Europe '72 still available on the Dead website for purchase?

    What to hear after this

    I've been neck deep in this box for a month and its awesome. I'm pretty close to hearing the whole tour but have lost track to be honest. If I wanted to dig this deep into another batch of Dead that would represent the band's next step in their development after the 72 tour what would it be?

    alas no
    these were all snapped up years ago, though you may find someone willing to part with theirs.
