    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.

    vocal dropouts

    Seem to be a characteristic of 1974 shows. But the funny thing is...it's never Donna who seems to be dropped out. You would think they might wipe some of her triumphant screams off the end of the Playing jams. Blame it on the reels.

    Who hears repeated dropouts…

    Who hears repeated dropouts on vocals in this #42 set especially disc 2? (see reports of such on-line elsewhere)?

    Dear J3FF

    I can't believe people are griping about the song order. There is no reason to waste space on another CD, just to have the songs in order. Add another disc and then a contingency will complain there is only a half hour of music on one CD, and they want bonus tracks. Or that Dark Star / St Stephen / The Eleven was divided over two discs. While cost may be no problem for you, it is for others. Go buy a CD changer and program the tracks in the correct order.

    To say Lemieux is disrectful to the fans for this is a gross stretch of reality. It is because he respects rhe fans that he did this. It is easy to see he loves the fans and is eager to get great music to us. And you insult him. That us the problem with your post. Yes you are entitled to your opinion. No you are not entitled to throw accusations and make people feel bad. You owe an apology.

    Random gripe

    The builders of my townhouse made a slanted roof with planters.

    The bar holding them in place at the angle should be held by 10 bolts.

    How many bolts did they actually install?

    Six.

    That leads to pains in the tookess, people.

    ‘69 Dead Again

    I’m really enjoying this release, some new songs for me…Seasons of my Heart and Gathering Flowers…Plus two more Dark Stars, Yum.
    Nice archival newspaper clips about Live Dead.
    The sound is great too, big thanks to Owsley for our now-future enjoyment.

    Also if coupled with Dave’s Picks 6 we have11/2, 12/20, 12/21, 12/26 1969 and 2/2 1970.
    For the song/show playing sequence I’ll quote Jerry from the 11/2 show:-) “this evening is fraught with difficulties, absolutely fraught with difficulties”

    Dear Dave-

    So I've got Your Picks Vol. 43 in my hands and CD player. Cool music.... BUT...

    I ask you, sir--is this how YOU listen to these shows? The first 9 songs of 11/2/69, then the 5 songs from 12/26/69, then 4 songs from 11/2, then 11 songs from 12/26??

    If yes, then I don't feel you really appreciate the experience of live Dead--how each show is a unique event and piece of musical art, how each show has a rhythm and a story all its own. (This is WHY so many of us spend thousands of dollars buying these very shows on CD when we are content with just getting the best studio releases from other artists we love.)

    If this is NOT how you would listen to these shows, and you do enjoy and appreciate listening to a show as it was performed, then you are not really respecting the rest of us who want to listen to the shows in that way but don't have the privilege of access to GD's vaults.

    You make great choices of shows-- just let us listen to them as Jerry intended please. It's doable. Every single box set release does it.

    Thanks!

    Row 22, Jimmy?

    Realizing just now that the illustrious VGuy waltzed right past me last night in row 22 at Red Rocks!

    I appreciated his "Make America Grateful Again" t-shirt at the time, he must not have seen my House of Guitars tee or I know he would have stopped for a fist bump!

    Next I get to stroll down to the mailbox to pick up DP 43 (no shipping notice, but I got the heads up from my account with USPS- pro tip).

    Let the good times roll! And now back to your regularly scheduled Gathering Flowers For The Master's Bouquet...

    What He Said

    I also would prefer releases have the show in original sequence, with any bonus content at one end or the other of the main show of the release rather than interspersed throughout. I'd rather pay for an extra disc to keep the sequence intact, rather than to chop it up to fit on three discs. I suspect that this may be the minority view based on past discussions about bonus content and out of sequence songs.

    So I know this is off topic ;D but regarding Dave's Picks... Dave- I'm ever-grateful to get to hear this music but can you PLEASE give us the shows as they were performed instead of mixing them together (#43 is an especially jumbled mess).

    Thank you.

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?
But!
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?

...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.

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...

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.

Good Lovin'

Hot
Hot
Hot

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

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.

G

Also in cue possiblities are :

America
Joe Satriani
Black Crowes
Kenny Chesney
Skynyrd
are possibilities

In less consideration
Dierks Bentley
Styx and REO
My Morning Jacket

Music seen booming here.

Revised and edited.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.
