One more Saturday night at Winterland! Yes, we're back to home base for DAVE'S PICKS VOLUME 42, the complete show from Winterland, San Francisco, 2/23/74. The one that featured the earliest amalgamation of what would soon become the Wall of Sound, the one that is so "loud, clear, and defined," it's been ripe for release for quite some time and we're glad it's finally getting its due.
First set or second, there are no wrong answers here. From the unique show opener of Chuck Berry's "Around And Around" and an incredible "Here Comes Sunshine" that would then disappear for 18 years, to a medley of WAKE OF THE FLOOD tracks - "Row Jimmy," "Weather Report Suite," and "Stella Blue" - cementing their status in the canon and an unstoppable hour through the classic 1973-1974 Dead that is “He’s Gone”>“Truckin’”>“Drums”>“The Other One”>“Eyes Of The World,” it's all exceptionally hot.
Limited to 25,000 numbered copies, DAVE’S PICKS VOLUME 42: WINTERLAND, SAN FRANCISCO, 2/23/74 was recorded by Kidd Candelario and has been mastered to HDCD specs by Jeffrey Norman at Mockingbird Mastering. Grab a copy while you can.
Didn't they used to provide…
Release this great run. 4/25/71 - 4/29/71
4/25/71 - 4/29/71, this whole Fillmore East Run needs to be released in its entirety..
You are correct, sir
Allll of April 71 FE
BTK needs to do Daves job when Dave retires
Sorry lads but I believe the complete tapes are not there.
Supposedly much was chopped up for Skull Fuck?
I think that’s why they did Ladies and Gentlemen: used best of what they had?
A) I could be confused and thus completely wrong, and
B) we don’t know what other sources may exist?
Or do we? Someone out there surly knows more about this?
anyone get a shipping notice…
anyone get a shipping notice yet?
The River Box is awesome...
...and still not sold out! I just finished listening to each show, so this is my first pass. Took a while. I gotta say, disc 20 is a stand out. That's the third disc of the second 1973 show in the box. Course you guys already know that. Dark Star>Stella Blue>Eyes>Weather Report Suite! Sweet is right! I listened to this disc three times over three morning's breakfast, and it will bear re-listening for years to come! Multiple breath-taking jams, one after another.
Check your PM.
Not that Dave can't change his mind, but....
he has said in interviews that they have put out all they intend to on the April '71 FE shows.
That leaves a ton of great shows in March-April '71 for a '71 box.
I am just one show shy of hearing the whole St Louis box. Then I'm going back to the second of two '71 shows in that box and CRANKING IT.
Hey, gents, ain't Nitecat The Man?? Thanks to the tapers...
shipping notice received
hope I get it by Friday
una paloma blanca
But I just gotta say 4/22/77 is INCREDIBLE it's been awhile (years) since I listened to this let me add that I've never heard a SB recording until today man oh man does this show SMOKE!!!!!!
Received. Time to listen to other Dead eras so my ears are relatively fresh for 1974 when the Dave's arrives.
Sorry? For what?
4 22 77 is indeed a w e s o m e
I don't put much stock in shipping notices...In the past I have received product before receiving a shipping notice and at times I waited two weeks after getting one
What Nappy said....
Gotta love the dove.
Wissinoming going in head first. Love it.
Posting my tie-dyed Easter eggs avatar. Because I can.
4/26/71. Fillmore East.
Another great show, from a historic run of shows. Big Boss Man, Warf Rat , and Mama Tried, all appear on Skull & Roses from this show. Duane Allman sits in with the Dead. My favorite version of Good Lovin.
4 26 71
And a first set Dark Star into Wharf Rat
Wharf Rat is on Skull n Roses
Way back in 2001
Phil n Friends played east of Seattle
In the parking lot before the show I had some electric juice
As I sat there, suddenly China Rider from 4 26 71 came on
Yowzah yowzah yowzah
No electric juice since then
Great show by PnF
More hidden tracks, please
Dix13 Scarlet Fire
Do that kind of thing more often, Dave n pals
26th and 27th April 1971
I wonder if the fact that Duane Allman and the Beach Boys guested means that the full run is less likely to be released. Although I think maybe one of the tracks featuring Duane came out on an Allman Brothers compilation a while back.
Drive by Truckers in a few days, same venue either day before or after is Jason Isbell and the 400 unit. Jason Isbell is with EmmyLou Harris and others. DBT with Mavis Staples and others.
Saw DBT so many times in a small clubs around here, that was when Jason was with them.
For me, also Widespread X3 and Dave Matthews 1 show coming up. Plus Primus this weekend.
May even get my country music bangor and clangor on with many artists heading this way. Trying to make up my mind on seeing Vince Gill. Probably not Brooks and Dunn or the Judds. Live music budget has to be worked out.
Waiting impatiently Dave. J/K no complaints here. Operations have made substantial upgrades in the last 2 years.
Also in cue possiblities are :
In less consideration
Styx and REO
My Morning Jacket
Music seen booming here.
Revised and edited.
Make my Foot, the Proud Foot
Love the ScarFire hidden gem
Gary & The DBT
That’s great you saw the Truckers when Isbell was in the band, quite a line up then with his wife on bass. I think they are a kick ass band, and I’m looking forward to their new record in June. As for Emmylou, I think she still has the greatest voice in her field, and I’d never pass on a chance to see her play.
I was scouring the upcoming shows today, and you’re right, a lot to choose from being summer touring season, but budgeting for it is another matter.
Ordered the “new” Fabulous Furry Freak Bros hardcover today, one of a series of four in the series. Those comix never get old!
Thinking of Beach Boys, every so often I go back over to the tube to watch an old clip of the Beach Boys backing Chicago on their song "Wishing You Were Here." It is such a great performance especially vocally. Think it is NYE 1974. Trying to remember when Dick Clark started his NYE specials.
FYI, the remastered Chicago first couple of releases are mu-nay.
Nappy! Thanks for wheelchair taper post/lync. Lots of interesting stuff there.
I saw Alice Cooper mentioned here not to long ago....
....he's playing here with Ace Frehley. Definite possibility I might go.
Golden Knights are going golfing....
....and 95% of hockey fans are popping champagne.
See you next season.
Can i still wear my golden knights shirt, vguy?
Rehashing the hash about jerry
Cant help it tho
5 7 77 Jerry is vibrant, clear, alert
2.5 years later Fall 79 Jerry is moving in slo'moshun
A true shame
I still love the GD in 79, but wow. The contrast.
On April 26 2022.
My own idea of the estimated arrival date - is just before Billy's Birthday. Any time after that, excluding Sunday, May 8th, *talk cute* to the USPS Inspectors.
Auston Matthews is the first US born player to reach 60 goals in an NHL season! I’ve said this before, I grew up with this game, and he is one of the best I’ve ever seen.
Now, how about bringing that Stanley Cup back to Toronto, AM….
Orchestra to play shows in Europe to celebrate the E72 tour this September. The band will have Alligator being played by Jeff Matheson. Anybody over across the pond planning on going to any of these shows? I'm sure they will be epic.
Jeff channels Jerry very well, can only imagine the sounds he will get out of Gator.
Vguy - sorry about your boys. I told you last year that trading Alex Tuch was a horrible decision. At least now he can go golfing with some of his former teammates.
Mike - good luck to the Leafs. We all know the outcome, but I’ll back them. Other than Toronto I find almost all the playoff teams in the East unlikable.
Colorado is the team to beat. Nevertheless, I still want Canadaland to win a Cup. I’ll take the Oilers in the west and the Leafs in the east.
Good luck to some.
Definitely worth seeing.. Jeff can shred. He can't quite sing like Jerry, but he can play. If/when I venture across the pond again, I would really like to see some of those venues.
As for hockey and sports in general.. yea, the ups and downs of winning and losing. It's only a matter of time until you are on the losing end of playoffs and championships...
Love getting the shipping notice email but hate that it doesn’t move for a week. Wish when you buy the “early bird” subscription that you can upgrade the shipping. I’m okay with paying more knowing the USPS isn’t involved. Play dead!
I dunno, think they peaked too soon?
So I got the email last week…
So I got the email last week, but UPS tracking still doesn't recognize the tracking number?
be happy I have not even…
be happy I have not even gotten a ship notice.
Tracking and Movement
I’m not even going to bother checking tracking, it’ll just make me nuts, but has anybody’s Cds started moving? It would be nice to hear some good news……
RIP Klaus Schulze.
Saw TD in 1978, at least I saw the laser show and the banks of synths. I expect there were people behind them.
Good idea not to track
It arrives when it arrives
sorry to burst anybody's nitrous bubble, but I would rather play any DaP then listen to DSO, D & C, Wolfpack or any other GD cover band. Local band around here called Hyrider and they are all the same: marginal, terrible garage bands. Unimaginative, boring, and lame.
Now back to your regularly scheduled programming.
Angry Jack Straw
Jack - You’re right, the Leafs have as much chance of winning it all as Herb Tarlek did getting Lonnie Anderson’s Jennifer character to go out with him, but dim hope is better than none. I think Tampa Bay is still the team to beat, with Florida and Colorado in the running.
I’ve received my shipping notice for DaP 42 a few days ago, but based on the “low octane”postal service in these parts, I’m thinking the first round of playoffs will be over by the time it arrives.
Shipping Notice Received
The 2 week wait begins!
DSO - Klaus Schulze
I'd have gone to see DSO in pre covid times. See what they are like. I saw Live Dead 69 with Tom Constanten about 3 years ago, and Terrapin Truckin with Phil Lesh about 2014, I think. Obviously neither band could hold a candle to The Dead, but it was a night out with people who were into the Gratefuls, serenaded by a Grateful Dead type sound. I saw Jerry on stage at the LiveDead69 gig - his ghost, anyway. As soon as my brain registered it, he disappeared. All good harmless fun.
Sorry to read about Klaus Schulze. I may be wrong, but I think he only played on one Tangerine Dream album - the synth free first one "Electronic Meditation". Music of the Gods - it reminds me of Ummagumma a bit. Highly recommended if you haven't heard it and like pre Dark Side Pink Floyd. Klaus Schulze plays drums on it.
Received My Shipping Notice This Morning
I would also like to announce I am in the middle of a deep dive in May '77. Listening to every show during the month and am having a great time! Currently on 5/19 (Dick's Picks 29.)
