    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.

DSO are playing the Shepherd's Bush Empire in London on September 13th. Tickets are an extraordinary £108 ($140 ish) for two standing. It's a 2000 capacity venue and at those prices they'll be lucky to get a couple of hundred attending. Completely daft. I saw them some years ago at a small venue in London for about £20 each and had a great night as i did at Phil Lesh at the Brooklyn Bowl in Greenwich. My wife who is definitely not a deadhead had a great time too. I'll give it a miss this time, it's a shame.

I'd have thought twice if it cost that much! Shepherds Bush Empire, too - yuk. Live Dead 69 were on at the ultra chic Under The Bridge when I saw them. Part of the Stamford Bridge complex - home to Chelsea F.C.

Nick1234 - yes, Brooklyn Bowl - that was where I saw Phil Lesh and co too. Good night . They played Viola Lee Blues....I am certain of it. Fairly certain anyway.

Colin - I have never heard that 1st Ash Ra Tempel album - it's got a good reputation though. The only solo album I have by Klaus Schulze is one called Irrlicht. Pretty good - more like the mid 70's Tangerine Dream - waves of synthesizer. Sounds a bit like watching a lava lamp.

Would say, one can listen to recordings almost anytime, there is nothing like good live music, up close, with kind friends. Among too many stories.... have been fortunate to see DSO a good number of times, including an acoustic performance years ago at an old train station venue in White River Junction, VT for about 100 people. There was a small get together at a friends house nearby before hand, it turned out that Dino (drums) and Rob B. (keyboards) were there among the twelve or so guests, I was charged with grilling the salmon outside during a massive thunderstorm as the power went out briefly. So electric and acoustic. Tickets used to be reasonable around $30-35, surprised they are so much across the pond, travel expenses? As some know, Rob Eaton, DSO rhythm guitar, is directly responsible in the retrieval process of a good deal of the music we have been enjoying on Dave's Picks and elsewhere. Fortunate me, just heard about the release of a few reserved tickets for this Friday night Hot Tuna show, scored a primo front row seat, will have a great view of their feet.

Shucks, if anyone out there will be near central New Hampshire Friday night, there's still, as of 4:20 pm, two front row seats left for Hot Tuna about $60 each, search on Flying Monkey, Plymouth NH. This is a funky small old movie house that seats about 200 or so.

Yes. I think Colorado is the team to beat.

The President’s trophy winner rarely brings home the Cup. Say goodbye to the Panthers.

It’s extraordinarily difficult to win the Cup three times in a row. Say goodbye to the Lightning.

We all know how the teams from Canadaland have performed over the last 25 years or so. I’ll be backing the Oilers in the west and the Leafs in the east. I’m truly hoping this is the year the Cup heads across the border. It’s been way too long. Regardless, say goodbye to our brothers to the north. All of them.

That leaves Colorado. Good luck to your local boys.

Same old for the Sabres and Red Wings. Ugh.

Thank God Better Call Saul is back.

...DaP 1 vinyl? I got a second shipping notice and thought it was the vinyl, but when I looked again, it was for the a la carte DaP 42 I got for a buddy. Of course, neither my sub, nor the extra copy's tracking numbers work, but that's par for the course, and since they took down the DaP 1 vinyl page, there's nowhere to commiserate with others about it.

Edited to add: Go Hurricanes!

4-8-72 vinyl
A European seller on EBay currently has ‘more than 10 available’ and has sold 5, $99 + $40 shipping.

12-10-71 vinyl
Currently $82 on Amazon. I paid $104 a few months ago.

5-19-74 vinyl
Currently $185 on Amazon (seller in UK). I paid $105 3 years ago.

4-26,27-69 vinyl, Real Gone Music release.
Played it this weekend and it sounded grate.
But, it didn’t sound as good as Rhino vinyl. It had a lot of snap, crackle, and pop, and I wasn’t eating Rice Krispies. I’m going to run it through my Spin Clean system and see if that helps. Of note, I’ve received dirty and damaged Rhino vinyl before too.

Let’s go Red Wings.
The rebuild seems to be further along than expected. Yes, a little rough lately, but Larkin is out.
Haven’t picked a team yet for the Cup, but it certainly won’t be the Avs. I still hold a grudge from the 90’s.

New Garcia/Saunders release.
Excellent (visualize Mr. Burns tapping fingers).

PT, GFar, and anyone else trying to get healthy, glad you’re doing better.

No word on DaP1 vinyl here. (It's coming, I'm sure,,,, just not when)

Burnsy wrote New Jerry Release. But because of my reading style (I only seem to read the start of words), I thought New Jersey was releasing a new "something",,,, read the damn thing 3 times before I realized it was New Jerry. (which I had already ordered!)

Hadn't thought of Tangerine Dream in LONG time, thanks for the reminder. Listening to Tangram (set 1). Nice

FYI - just checked,,,,, DaP 1 vinyl still on schedule for 4/29 release,,,,, still no notice!

What a show! The Other One, appears on Skull & Roses, killer Dark Star/ St. Stephen with T. C. sitting in. This run of shows is on the list of alltime runs of Grateful Dead runs and needs to be released in its entirety. A box set of this run of shows, sells out in minutes.

Great Seinfeld reference!
I woulda broke her fingers if she touched my rig (just teasing) sorta lol

Well Jack I hope your right and we don’t experience cupus interuptus like the last couple years.
Full disclosure, you can count on one hand how many hockey games I’ve seen this year.
(Poor Mike probably just spewed his Horts after such sacrilege!)
The older I get the less time I have for sports, and since the Sabres have sucked so bad, for so long that hasn’t helped.
I have gotten back into football a bit since the Bills have been watchable and it’s only part of one day a week.

But I ALWAYS check out the NHL playoffs! And the AVs have been red hot, but how many times have we seen that happen: where the hot team blows their wad too soon and crashes and burns? It always seems like it’s about timing, that and if someone’s goalie starts spinning around on their heads and turns into Satin!
How many times have we seen a decent team become invincible because of a suddenly super hot goalie!
But I like your theory and hope your right!

And yass, Canadaland is way overdue, so if not the AVs, how bout dem Leafs! Go Leafs, lol, I just like saying go Leafs, don’t even need a reason lol. But how cool would that be, whole country would go nuts!

my first opinion of 9/8/73 release was "meh"
I am warming up to it

I still don't think it's ONE OF THE BEST but it's OK.

Dave the Hype Man (it's his gig) talks about Dick Latvala getting all gooey over the show.

Hmm

I haven't received any email notifications yet. Is it still being released today?
Dave's Picks Vol. 42 w/ Bonus Disc
(Pre-order - released on: 4/29/2022)

Today is release day
When it arrives is anybodyz guess
Shipping notice? "Maybe so, maybe not"
You cant tell with this bunch

BLUEBOY714.. Same BS different day. I plan to scrap the subscription next year buy 1 3 4 a la carte and 2 off ebay to get the bonus disk. This is not suppose to be so frustrating nothing but Kill joys.

to manufacture their CD for DP the quality has gone down (skips in CD, shipping late, no email communication, etc.). I understand supply chain and all of that but these are CDs and they s/b able to make without a problem unlike vinyl records where their is a shortage of lacquer due to the largest supplier burning down.

My favorite version of Minglewood Blues, a real rocker! Me & My Uncle appears on Skull & Roses. Alligator, and the jam the Dead play after it, is fantastic, something I can listen to over and over again and it's just best, the exclamation point on a legendary run.

I have FTV 1 & 3 on order and looks like the date keeps moving. How's the weight and quality?

Anyone know why the DP19 Real Gone vinyl went from $129 via Real Gone website to $199 via record stores and other merchants? Seems steep considering the cover appears to be a low res blowup of the original cd pamphlet...

One for the money, two For the show! - that's what I think.

I thought it was a cover song and didn't realize it was Keith singing at first. I had it on while I was working and lost track of what was going on. I think Keith's voice was clear and strong and had some range. He sounded a little bit untrained vocally. I thought the backup vocals would have been better without Donna. The kid had some potential for a song a night. I read the lyrics are from Hunter, which kind of surprised me because they don't really sound like him.

Checked tracking, and despite getting a shipping notice on Monday, UPS has no idea where my Cds are. This is borderline ridiculous. Scratch that, it’s not borderline, it is completely ridiculous. Plus I ordered a la carte, so I paid for this “shipping” , if you want to call it that…….no wonder people order off of ebay. Just sayin’

It's been this way for long while. Buy it ala carte and ebay - sure, go for it if that's what suits you. For me the subscription is without question the best deal in my whole purchasing world.

I think Keith was a little out of his comfort zone on Let Me Sing live. Several shows after 9/8 I think Jerry et al start stretching out on the jam and Keith's vocal reentry shows some stress.

As for Hunter's lyrics - for awhile its struck me as strange when folks are surprised that a lyric is Hunter's if its not a jerry tune. All the grief that Samba in the Rain got and to me its lyric is pure straight up Hunter and all good, who cares if it was Vince and not Jerry.

To all of our shipping woes. Works for me, might not work for everyone.
So, for most of my life, I had to have EVERYTHING now!! Especially music!! So, I can't advise specifically HOW to accomplish this, but I FINALLY realized 2 things:
1-It WILL arrive eventually
2-I have SO MUCH great stuff to listen to!! I am forever wondering when I'll have time to listen to this disc or that disc so....now is the time. And by the time I'm done listening, my Dave's 42 will be here!!

Anyway as I said, it works for me. It's difficult to be patient, but, I am an old dog trying to learn a new trick.

Music is the Best!!

The original drummer for Tangerine Dream and the guy on the kit for Stomu Yamashta's awesome band from 76-77 GO with Steve Winwood, Mike Shrieve and Al Di Meola, has passed away. Always loved those GO lp's back in the day. A true pioneer of the ambient space rock. Via con Dios Think I'll break out that first GO lp now, always a fun listen.
