    Europe '72: The Complete Recordings - All The Music Edition

    Europe '72:
    The Complete Recordings -
    All The Music Edition

    Our Europe '72 boxed set is now officially sold out, with all 7,200 boxes now gone! We can't thank you enough for your support, for having faith in the project and taking the plunge to purchase this unprecedented release. Despite the fact that it's going to be a bit of a wait before it arrives on your door step, we are sure you'll be blown away with the results.

    We are now offering the All-The-Music edition of Europe '72, which includes all of the music recorded on the tour, with each show in its own individual package, complete with its own liner notes by Dead scholars such as David Gans, Blair Jackson, Steve Silberman, Gary Lambert and others, as well as by attendees of some of the shows. You'll get 73 CDs and over 70 hours of prime Grateful Dead.

    IT'S ALL ABOUT 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 EUROPE ’72 MEGA-BOX SET containing ALL 22 SHOWS of what is arguably the greatest tour the Grateful Dead ever played, on a whopping and clearly cosmic 73 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 enormous 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).

    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.

have been listening to some sb recordings of the Olympia Theater, Paris show that I was lent recently. This is going to be so good in Sept. I was offered "hundreds of cassettes" of shows. I don't have a cassette player anymore. I'm not sure when I'd be able to listen to them. There is GD radio hour, the tapers section, Jam of the Week, the little bit I have in my collection of Road Trips and the Fillmore 4 nights make up hours and hours of listening. And Europe 72 is coming!!! But how does one say no to hundreds of tapes of shows? Jeez, my girlfriend will kill me :-)

what would the gd have done? my guess is exactly what the gd HAVE done. the gd are mickey billy bobby and phil. from what i gather, they decided at this point in their lives they didn't want to facilitate their entire vault, so they found someone to do it for them. they wanted to get the music out. and they wanted to get paid for what they did. artists are funny that way...

I always wondered why the Dead never released one recording in SACD form, That would be great for "Europe 72", The Allman Brothers have released both "Fillmore East" and "Eat A Peach" on SACD and they are awesome sounding recordings. "Jesus Christ, The Same, Yesterday, Today and Forever"

The Grateful Dead did DVD-Audio as their format of choice with the 2 obvious Full Albums...typically artists chose SACD or DVD-Audio...in the end both flopped i think...Billy Joel recently released 2 SACD titles but not alot of activity in the past 3-4 years...definitely not alot DVD-Audio releases in the 3-4 years either...my guess is for most people the difference is great enough and possibly the mere fact you can't IPOD them might hold those formats back...I will say this some SACD and DVD-Audio are done extremely well where they are much better than the pre-existing format and some where it's not any better and at times and this is true sometimes even worse...eg. Paul McCartney Band on the Run on DVD Audio or was it Venus and Mars? Well one of those was the absolute remasters ever done and put out on DVD-Audio...also while we're talking about remasters, "All things must Pass" remastered in 2000 was also a horrible remaster...what made it so bad? Well there's constant white noice and that constant deferrence in the sound where it just collapses...making DVD-Audio my preference...SACD can be done good but you have to know how to mix correctly which not too many engineers can seem to do these days not named Hoffman.

Just saw the following posted on the Europe '72 site: "...but we suggest an extra close listen to "Greatest Story," "Good Lovin'," and the entire second set jam centered around "The Other One.". That would be really nice were it not for the fact that, owing to brainlesscorporate decisions, only 7200 people have that particular capability. So I guess this tour website is really only for them. Grateful Dead Incorporated sucks. Long live the Grateful Dead. Sincerely, Clay P.S. Just heard Jerry specifically tell me the other day in "It's All Over Now, Baby Blue" to "..forget the Dead you've left, they will not follow you..." Thanks, Jerry. Good advice.

Fuck you. It's NOT all about the music any more as you so daring claim, you corporate jerkwads. It's all about the money So from all of us older DeadHeads who've been here since the beginning, and long before any of you were even born: FUCK YOU. Sincerely, Byrd

As stated very clearly in several places on this website, the Europe '72 release is available to everyone who wishes to purchase it. The 7200 limited edition refers to the extras only. The music can be bought by anyone who desires to do so.

...one of the older ones here - been around this scene since the beginning (yes, the '60s). I see stuff everyday that I'd like to have but can't afford. If I want something bad enough, I'll save up for it. Otherwise, I'll forget about it and move on. These guys created the best music this planet has ever known. I have no problem giving them money for something I enjoy so much. In my view, they earned it. I'm always amused when someone thinks they know what Jerry would or would not have done or how he would react to something today. The fact is, Jerry earned his share of the pie, too. He lived in a 7000 square foot house on 11 acres. It wasn't like he lived a pauper's life so that Deadheads could get a daily fix of free or cheap music that a lot of people seem to think they're entitled to. They were and are artists of the highest order. They get paid well for what they do. I can't imagine the turns my life would have taken without their music, so I buy as much as I can afford. Good for me, good for them.

some people are still sleeping, what can you do. As an unsucsesful artist myself, other than the monetary value of that statement coz I'm stll flat broke, I believe the arist is due the karma they have shared with all, whatever that brings and hopefully is a lot of cash!!! to support the things that are important in life by their standards, and by gosh rightfully so! I long live the Gateful Dead and the Empire they will bring!!!!!!!

So, byrd, the GD production company is supposed to spend a great amount of time and financial resources to create crisp, perfect sounding recordings and then give them away? That would be nice, but reality is a kicker sometimes. Yes, $450 is a lot of money at once, but it comes out to $6.25 per cd. Not bad considering. I am one that did not purchase this set-- too expensive for me. And life is too busy-- it would take me a long time to get through the 72 cds. But am I all negative about management about it? Nope, just accepting that this is a set I won't get. I hope someday they will release individual shows from the tour, but if they don't, oh well. Lots of other stuff out there. At least this release will bring a lot of people great joy.

Byrd, the best thing I can recommend at this moment ~ if you haven't done this already ~ is to serve yourself a copy of Denver 11-21-73 (the latest Road Trips). There's a stellar fucking show available all by itself (with some stellar fucking filler from the night before). Just listened to the second set (disc 2 & most of 3) ~ and it's a journey of the highest order. $24.00 bucks, man, three discs of Dead heaven. I'd be surprised if they didn't release ANY of the E72 shows. Plus, c'mon now, you wouldn't have bought them ALL separately anyway ~ if you did, it would surely be alot more than $ 450.00 bucks and be baked into your budget for a lot longer. Think about it, man. And no better soundtrack to think about it on than that Playin (2nd round) -> Wharf Rat -> Playin' (3rd round) from Denver '73.....

Based on information made available so far... Music Only: All 22 shows on 72 CDs. Based on images already shown, you will be getting 22 digipaks containing a booklet and the CDs. This set is all that is currently available. Limited Edition of 7,200: Steamer trunk case to house the Music (as above), a hard-bound coffee-table book, plus other unannounced cool surprises. Sold out and no longer available.

I know that the Music Only list, in order, has already been used to reassign box set codes as their original takers fell by the wayside during the original excitement. I can't speak to what will happen down the line, but I will pass the thought along.

That the list will grow even larger once they go to charge the credit cards and find that some cards needed to be updated due to expiring. I really hope they get that process figured out soon. It seems like a simple fix to me but I guess it isn't. Dead.net - all you got to do is use the credit card I charged the Denver '73 RT on ... come on that should be simple!

for the Dead people to send an e-mail around August or so to everybody who is still in for the mega-box asking them to either confirm their current card details or supply their new card details. This would require setting up a secure webpage for the purpose as nobody should ever send credit card details in an e-mail, but even so it would seem a reasonably simple way of ensuring that it all goes through as everybody would like it to. Or am I oversimplifying things here?

Considering how attentive they have been to the ordering process (once they got it working), I hope that carries forward into the charging/shipping phase. Basically, if a Ltd Ed order has a problem, I expect they would work with the customer to resolve the issue before upgrading a Music Only order.

Marye, Some months ago I noted to customer services (and here) that I had had to order this set with my debit card, as my credit card was due to expire in April. I was told by customer services that when I was ready and had the new card, all I had to do was to ring them and they would sort this out. I've just called and been told they cannot do this until July as the system as it stands doesn't handle it. Is this really so? Or have I got an uniformed customer services rep?

I've been waiting, and waiting for the download series to start back up. That was some EXCELLENT music, delivered right to your desktop in minutes. I was poking around the download FAQs and found this: "Please visit the Dead.net Hi-Def catalog (coming soon) to browse our premium music & video digital files." Anyone have insight into what this Hi-Def catalog is going to be?

And with the last crumb dropped and eagerly gobbled by Hansel and Gretel, the old Warlocks slammed the oven door, knowing their efforts wouldn't even begin to feed the multitudes on the mountain top. So they decided instead to feed whole pies to 7200 while the millions were invited to sit quietly by and watch the festivities from the back of the bus...that Corporate Dead has plainly run into the ditch. The Music stopped yesterday.

..and therein lies the gist of the problem: They didn't even do the research to find out if they'd sell more copies of the individual shows than they would cumulatively sell in the box sets, nor apparently did they even care. The Vault was always meant to be opened and shared, not sliced and diced and parsed out to the highest bidders. Here's the interview excerpt: DH: If you don’t mind me asking, if you fix ten thousand as the number of people who will buy these deluxe sets, how many people typically buy the cheaper releases like Dick’s Picks or RoadTrips? DL: Honestly, I don’t know. I haven’t looked. Dick Pick’s have always done very well, but as the record industry slowed down by around the time we got to about the thirtieth pick, our numbers slowed down a little –

tour will be given away by the people who are making the purchase of this upcoming Europe '72 offering. We simply won't need our old CDs of this tour anymore. And if any of the Deadheads want the soundboards of many of the Europe 72 shows, go to the Vineyard where these shows are being 'vined'. All these shows are available for nothing except your promise to send them onto the next person on the list after you copy the CD and the postage (usually around $2) to mail them along, Once September comes, those '72 shows will be 'frozen' since the full shows will be a commercial release. Not only Europe '72 is being vined, but there are many Dead shows from their entire touring career. And many other wonderful trade friendly artists shows are being vined as well. There are opportunities for this same music, for next to nothing, if that is what you want. The Truth is realized in an instant, the act is practiced step by step.

Hey I made a spreadsheet of that info, too. Check the page over at http://www.dead.net/may-26-strand-lyceum-london for what I had to say. Slightly different counting methods, I gather (distinction between songs & tracks, I think). Anyway, the word of the day is "dyscalculia" ... It all adds up to 73 discs, not 72!

Box sets all sold. End of the revenue stream for Europe '72. Dubious business decision at best. I probably would have bought three or four individual discs this weekend, but then I'm just an old Deadhead and don't count anymore. Hell, you can't even get these Bolos to print a skull and roses t-shirt anymore, so what use is even trying to reason with these senseless clowns.

Is there any it could be autographed by everyone remaining? That would make it the "Box Set of the Century". What do you say?

Spincds is offering the "all music edition" and they state a release date of September 19th. Don't know if this is a guess or since they are offering the "all music version" they have been informed of the release date. Just thought I would throw this out. I would guess the 7200 sets would be released before the all music sets. Only speculation on my part.

I was told "September/October" by someone who should know, but that was on January 20 - a long time ago now. I hadn't noticed that release date from Spin, but I did notice, about two weeks ago, that it was in the top 5 of their "best sellers" list which surprised me, especially as all the talk in England right now is about austerity. Not so, thus!

I've never had any real luck and to have decided at the right time to get this monstrosity of a box, I consider myself fortunate considering how many people want it. The only other time I can think of was when Floyd toured S.D in '94, I went down to Jack Murphy stadium 'at the time' to buy tickets. There were about 5 thousand people there and everyone received wrist bands with a number on it. Then a lott raffel took place and they read out a number between da da da, and the first number are the first ones in line to get tickets. I was gob spamed as mine number came up as the forth number in line, meaning I scored the most excellent tickets, what a show! Byrd what can you do, life's a bitch! but it's not over yet :)

    I also wish to know if another printing of the All-Music edition is contemplated, or even flac downloads. I am with child to hear this music!

    RE:drdogg - You can actually get every one of the concerts off amazon as an MP3 downloads but who wants MP3's YUCK! Please powers that be, can we get a repress? or at the least a Hi-Res DL? hard to pay the 5 grand people are asking for these Euro72 boxes online. especially with all the talk of defective discs.
