    "When it came to 1973 Dead, I was always drawn to the big second-set jams, 'Dark Star' or 'The Other One,' and all of the places those songs could go that year. One week during my initial stint with the Dead, Dick was spending a lot of time listening to 9/8/73, and he could not stop raving about it. He was very intent on pointing out that despite the absence of the 'Big Two' from 1973, every song, every solo, every moment was out-of-this-world excellent. He played me the first set, giving a play-by-play of each song and what made it special. In those listening sessions, Dick taught me a lot about how to listen critically and objectively. Of course, the subjective self always creeps in, those moments when you whoop and holler at how good a performance is, but that objective listening is critical. After many days of listening, Dick moved to other eras, as was his wont, since he carried the responsibility of selecting the best Dead shows from all eras to represent the Dead’s recorded legacy. But he made it clear and inarguable that he felt 9/8/73 was one of the best-played shows from one of the Dead’s best years." - David Lemieux

    Despite the gloriously blustering artwork above, the forecast for DAVE'S PICKS VOLUME 38: NASSAU VETERANS MEMORIAL COLISEUM, UNIONDALE, NY, 9/8/73 is blazing hot! With a double endorsement from archivists Dick Latvala and David Lemieux, you know it's a MUST HAVE. This one's got inspired playing from start to finish, with soon-to-be-minted Wake Of The Flood classics, a first-ever "Weather Report Suite," Keith polishing his chops on "Let Me Sing Your Blues Away," Jerry tapping into era-defining sound with his Wolf guitar, and we'd be remiss if we didn't mention Bob's exquisite playing too.

    Among our 2021 Dave's Picks subscribers? The subscribers-only bonus disc featuring nearly an hour and a half from 9/7/73 is coming your way too. (P.S. there's 35 minutes of 9/7/73 on Dave's Picks Vol. 38, to boot)

    Limited to 25,000 numbered copies, DAVE'S PICKS VOLUME 38: NASSAU VETERANS MEMORIAL COLISEUM, UNIONDALE, NY, 9/8/73 was recorded by Kidd Candelaro and has been mastered to HDCD specs by Jeffrey Norman.

    Good call on the 5/3 Other One. Of all the E72 stuff, The Other One was the toughest for me to get on board with. The Space parts and meltdowns were appearing for just about the first time. I was much more used to the Cryptical Envelopment era, where they rocked harder and Spaced less....but man, once you get to appreciate what they're doing on those longer Spacier Other Ones. The first one to grab me from this tour was the Beat Club performance, and then Hundred Year Hall on 4/26. Great stuff. Wow wow wow wow wow. 4/11 from New Castle is also hot. And Part 2 from opening night at the Wembley swim club.

    Well - this Road Trips Wall of Sound 6/18/74 is some serious shit. Certainly Keith's best Morning Dew.

    I usually like to read the posts since I don't have much interesting to say. I am here every day and once in a while somebody says something that makes me perk up. Hendrixfreak, you said 6/17/75 is a returned Betty Board. Is there a list somewhere? Thank you. I listen to DaP 38 almost every day. I think it's wonderful. Jerry and Bobby both have above normal nights. I can't think of a show where they sounded better together. They both have a great night.

    You Old Farts...

    Just kidding of course. Really appreciate DMCVT and Dogon and Snafu chiming in for me or us. It really means a lot to me, and I know this padawan could learn a lot about the lifestyle from you guys.

    Example: Just the little nugget from Dogon about Mungo Jerry and In the Summertime, had to go down a little rabbit hole of discovery. Isn't that what this all about, helping each other during the trying times. Of course I remember In the Summertime but I was just about to begin grade school when it came out.

    Fortunately, I had a mom that played the radio in the car. So, as I have stated, I was born with some health issues which meant going to the doctors a lot as a child. The good that came out of it, was I came to consciousness very early. Therefore, I can remember even hearing Sgt. Peppers as a kid on the car radio. Hmmm, think that had any influence? So Dogon thanks for forth good material to chew on.

    DMCVT - again just another great post on several of the streams of consciousness we have been discussing. Dogon and Snafu have given me just some perspective when I listen to shows. DMCVT the whole post is incredible. "I didn't realize it would be important 50 years later." Nice one! Snafu.

    It still blows my mind just the things y'all saw, for example, DMCVT seeing Jimi I can only imagine. So that bears the question would you have rather seen Pig or Jimi? OK enough of that.

    Maybe, if we can remember, we can make June the month of "Bring out your Dead" Heads from way back, month.

    Again, thanks so much for posting, it means a lot to this head.

    G

    Hey Simon and Dogon - search youtube for Grateful Dead at Bickershaw there is some new video of Bickershaw. Simon, well new compared to when I sent you the little Bickershaw video I sent you the last time I searched.

    Any way, It's Friday. Time to mix up the pitcher!

    I still have never listened to Gainesville...Since everyone raves about, I was hoping for a release. Since they really started releasing stuff, I waited for the release. Now I think I need to pop my cherry and go ahead and listen to it.

    wanted: the old stuff

    I'll represent that... just short of 70 trips around the sun...catching up on the many posts with a few comments. No question that our "hosts" will wait until after the release of S&R, soon the box set announce circa July 1. It's all about the Ben Jammin's. More Pig, please.

    After leaving DC area for school in Maine, pro hockey became a big deal. Not a rabid fan, have been to pro games as well as a few at Dartmouth, those Ivy guys will play hard and there is nothing, nothing like in person live hockey down on the ice.

    Noted earlier, missed a few east coast shows before finally catching the GOGD in Baltimore 1973 for the first time, the Wolfman Jack show. Saw them a few months later at Watkins Glen. First "rock" show was Jimi at the Washington Hilton March 1968, had to be driven there, thanks dad.

    Transitioning to celebrity, so much is chance... first big live music event was at the White House, when the Black Watch played there early November 1963... afterwards, this sixth grader had the chance to shake hands with JFK and Jackie before the unthinkable happened eleven days later.

    Through a long episode as a working chef, met some top food dogs, including Paul Bocuse. In various restaurants, cooked for Ed Muskie, Phil Rizzuto, Peter Ueberroth but best of all, cause I met and asked him to sign a menu for me, Cab Calloway.

    Most recent in person, backstage at the Kennedy Center June 2017 with Pat Metheny, Antonio Sanchez, Linda May Han On and Gwilym Simcock the night Pat was announced NEA Jazzmaster... bushed from the long tour, they had about thirty minutes before they had get on their bus that night to their final show in Cleveland.

    Hanging with Martin Hayes after a small house concert in northern NH.

    Last six
    Bitches Brew: Miles
    Gypsy Rumble: Stephane Wrembel Trio w/ David Grisman
    Stratospheric Boogie: The flaming guitars of Speedy West and Jimmy Bryant (novelty item)
    Borboletta: Santana
    Turmoil & Tinfoil: Billy Strings
    Northern Song: Steve Tibbetts

    Any comments made previously, regarding audio issues with DaP 38 are tempered with the warts and all acceptance in delirious joyfulness that we have this music so well preserved for us. The Bonus Disc is tremendous.

    Now where is that 69/72 box set announce??

An excellent choice, Dave. Best guitar separation of Bobby and Jerry ever. Ramble On Rose, as noted, really highlights.

Bobby is best heard with a piano rather than an organ, which almost totally washes all his chord comping. No crowd noise either.

As I said at the beginning, excellent choice, Dave. What else ya got?

Can someone who has received theirs please share with us the song list?
Sounds like potentially a couple hours worth...though if you add the 2 9/7 songs listed on the track listing for DaP 38, that’s about 32 minutes. The written description near page bottom says about 35 minutes, and Dave says about 40 minutes...yes I am greedy and want every luscious moment I can get ; )

Always nice to have these new releases going into a weekend so they can get their due (Dew?)
Bonus disc is niiiiiice.

Also got mine in a very tightly sealed carboard box, which was in a green plastic bag. No chance it could get accidentally damaged or wet unless it was a steamroller. So odd there are clearly differing levels of attention in this detail as they go out.

Ok...got mine today...will give 'er a spin...one thing though...I noticed for # 37 and the new one that they now ship in flimsy plastic mailers that offer no protection...previously we were getting them in small sturdy cardboard mailers...I'm afraid that with these plastic bags someone is going to get a damaged set...just my two centavos...excuse me now...gotta spin this before wifey gets home from work...

My DaP 38 was in a cardboard box which was then in a plastic bag.

Oro,
Most of Set 2 is on the bonus disc (I think, don’t have it in front of me). Bird Song is filler on CD2 and Playing is filler on CD3.

Edit:
There are 2 Stella Blues too. Played two nights in a row.

The Listening Party - nice though it is - consists of, as remarked earlier, tracks from DP 37, to wit, Let It Grow, Deal (end of set 1), and Candyman (track 3 from set 2).

But as my copy of DP 38 hasn't arrived yet, I'd like to hear the WRS, Ramble On Rose, and He's Gone.

O.K. I gave it a second lesson on a different stereo system altogether. The first was with four speaker surround-sound, the second with just floorstanding speakers. I can still hear some kind of distortion or something going on. At first I thought it was the cymbals being too high in the mix. Not sure what it is.

Overall an excellent release. But, the sound quality keeps it below DaP5.

I'm calling BS on the listening party tracks. The LIG is clearly from '77 era shows. And the other two tracks [ROR/He's Gone] don't match what's actually included in the stream. What do I win Jim?

Very brief comment, as I have only had a chance to listen to first disc... the distortion I hear most shows up most clearly on some vocals, for example, esp. Jerry on Sugaree... mikes seem to be bit over modulated, levels a tad too high. The sibilants (Shake... juSt... Sugaree... ) usually will show it, could be a too close encounter with the mike, because its not heard on all sibilants... just SSSSSayin'

After looking thru all the stuff in the Store, I think a name change to the Daveful Dead is probably in order. We never had an Owsley, Candalario, Healy, Betty, Bob, Bobby, Jerry, Phil, Billy, Mickey, etc., Dead, but hey, now, times change and who the hell will all be around to argue once the lawyers are done.

Bonus disc filler Schwing

Bird Song ** Playing in The Band
Let It Grow -> Stella Blue
Truckin -> Drums -> The Other One Jam -> Eyes of the World -> Sugar Magnolia

Probably one or two more songs with the big jams. There's a lot of good stuff from 9/7/73 first set. Hopefully it's a couple of these They Love Each other El Paso or Row Jimmy Looks Like Rain back to back combo. There's been some smoking jams from 1973 on the tapers section here recently and these two nights at Nassau Coliseum have some of that same stardust

Love the nod to David Byrd’s poster for the Nassau shows in March on the 15th & 16th, (and then a third night on the 19th not mentioned on the poster), with the folks in the background! He’s Truckin’ and She’s Posin’ as Byrd’s poster says next to these same characters! Excellent work Helen Kennedy!

The Deal on that listening party, sure sound a lot like something from say 1978 when Donna is screeching towards the end of the song. I've never heard that in prior years and certainly not 1973.

Thankfully. Just finished it. Gorgeous He's Gone and Ramble On Rose, and a mighty fine debut of Weather Report Suite. Always been a fan of the whole thing more than what I feel is more abrupt and incomplete Let It Grow. Which, I still would have been pumped for a Let It Grow, especially set closer, but my introduction to the song was Jazz is Dead in 1999 when I heard their ripping jazz fusion instrumental version with Jimmy Herring playing the vocal lines, as well as searing leads and rapidfire rhythm https://youtu.be/UzpeMhtxrF4
I was blown away. Within the year, I happened upon the newly released Dick' Picks 14, which apparently was the last one to come out while Dick was still around, and here was 4cds of this band I had some familiarity with (Cornell, 3/1/69, 9/3/77), and here were 2 shows from an era I didn't have with songs I had just gotten to know in an instrumental jazz fusion fashion. And this set had not one, but two versions, and two Playing in the Bands, and opened and ended with Morning Dew. All there at Best Buy for like 25 bucks. So, made the easy call, and while I enjoyed the set a lot, it didn't initiate the deep dive into the Dead that took about a decade to really commence. And by that point I was catching up on DiP 12 with the monster WRS> Jam> US Blues, and the Winterland '73 box with its three excellent WRSuites, so this release is right in my wheelhouse. Can't wait for it to arrive. Received a shipping notice about 1am, still no tracking, but one can hope it's already out and about looking for me. The Listening Party was a good snack...

Oh, and was able to get another glass, so two for two thus far, and also got the shirt. Liked the look of it, and it not having a skull on it may allow me to wear around the wife without her pointing out the shirt I have on has a skeleton on it.

The eyes from the bonus disk is real fine. Jerry really hits the high notes at the 16:55 minute mark. I also picked up the t-shirt which I love. P.S.- Is it me or does the crow on the bonus disk have a couple of claws twisted 180° in the wrong direction?

But I was initially hoping for an official release of 6-9 and 10-73, which would be swell!

Maybe Dick Latvala didn't think it was that good but a lot of other heads, me included, seems to think so. I have a tape of 6-10-73 since 1985 but a bit muddy sounded and not in chronological order. It would be great to have it in order mastered by Jeffrey Norman. Including the third set with the Allmans of course. :-)

But I will appreciate DP 38 for the time being. ;-)
It was shipped on April 23rd and will hopefully be here before the end of May, or at least early June. :-)

For the 50th anniversary of the Europe 72 tour I'd like to see the powers that be select a few of the shows and apply all of the new technology available to enhance the sound quality (Plangent etc...) of these shows. (Give Jeffrey some time). I'd buy it.

But it does look like her, dang Dave, gone Madonna on us?

Thanks for the cover art catch being from the spring show, not sure I would have caught that! And as I posted on 37, I have that poster.

Dead.net WEB Site could use some TLC . Get rid of the "Who Are You" pop up (don't mind the song). Lately it seems every icon click leads to the table of contents instead of interior web pages. Did the monkey grab the keys to the IT Control Room? Would rather order merch from my laptop or desktop not my iphone. Oh Well, going to get some new flagpole rope to fly my new STEALIE flag.

I listened to the CD’s and all played fine with no distortion or audio problems. Have the files on a computer now as I convert to various formats for use on music players.

Note: on crappy computer speakers there is a lot of distortion (mostly Phil). I didn’t notice any when I played the CD’s on my stereo system.

Bonus track list:
111:37

Bird Song
Playing
Here Comes Sunshine
Let It Grow>
Stella Blue
Truckin’>
Drums>
Other One Jam>
Eyes>
Sugar Mag

Edit:
Now playing the bonus disc on home stereo and there is no distortion or audio problems.
When playing the files on a computer the audio levels (as shown by the audio software) were close to saturation. So, if you hear distortion try it on better speakers. This may account for the previous posts by people who listened with headphones and thought they detected distortion and/or saturation.
