"And with this incredibly tight batch of prime 1987 Grateful Dead, we’re thrilled to bring you Dave’s Picks Vol. 36, matching the number that will be forever tied to Dick’s legacy. Thanks for sticking around this long, and for joining us through these past nine years of archival live Grateful Dead releases." - David Lemieux
We're doing things a bit different for this one - two complete shows on four CDs, bringing you one of Dave's faves and what very well could have been one of Dick's Picks. Yep, back-to-back nights from peak era 80s - the furthest we've gone into the decade, in fact - that will bring you to joyful tears. DAVE’S PICKS VOLUME 36: HARTFORD CIVIC CENTER, HARTFORD, CT (3/26/87 & 3/27/87) delivers emotional takes on tracks like "Row Jimmy," "Black Peter," Uncle John's Band," and serves up a hit list of covers ("In The Midnight Hour," "Good Lovin'," "Desolation Row," "Promised Land," "Little Red Rooster," "Morning Dew," Johnny B. Goode") that'll have you hootin' and hollerin'.
Limited to 22,000 numbered copies, this one has been mastered to HDCD specs by Jeffrey Norman and is guaranteed to sell out.
*2 per order. Very limited quantity available.
Yes.. you are not losing your mind.. there must have been an error or mishap at some point in the supply chain and there apparently more than a few who have not received their DaP 36's yet. My guess is that they are having more made.
Send a PM to MaryE. That's probably your best advice. I bet they make you whole hopefully soon.
Arrived yesterday. Hang tight you should get yours any day.
I too have not received my DaP36. I had an address change, notified customer service a month+ ago that I hadn't received it. Still nothing. Any help appreciated (Marye?)
Happy New Year everyone.
I once received the Treasure Trove of soundboards from one of the good guys here, and there was so much on it and I had so many commercial releases to still go through that it took me a long time to really get into them.
Then a couple of years ago, I don't know if you remember a guy on here known as wjonjd - he used to be a regular but I guess has moved on. Anyway, he once wrote the following to me about 12/31/72, which I just dug out of email archives by doing a search on the show date:
The Truckin'-Other One-Morning Dew sequence has to be one of the greatest jams of absolute all time. Simply fuckin' mind blowing. I remember turning on someone to the Dead in school, lending him that tape. A couple of days later he asked me, "Where does that come from? Where do you think the inspiration to keep creating like that comes from?"
So of course I immediately queued it up, and what I wouldn't do to have a Full Norman copy of the show. It's been my favorite New Year's Eve show ever since, with Cow Palace '76 coming in as a close second.
Since DaP36 only tied the DP series, shouldn't DaP37 be celebrated as much as #36 since it's the tie-breaker?
What about a mirror image release?
DaP36 = 4 CDs / 2 shows / '87 = '78 \ 2 shows \ 4 CDs = DaP37...in the video for #37, Dave L. seemed to be unusually vague and a little giddy as far as the bonus material. It would be a great way to start the 10th year!
Or has this been announced already? If so sorry.
I hope all are well.
Yes, KF.. Wonjonjd was last seen digging a tunnel 37 feet below the vault in a last ditch, vain attempt to free the master reels for 6/9&10/73 RFK. On the bright side, I hear ZuckFun has escaped and is laying low in an undisclosed location. Many thanks to whoever freed him.
Rumor has it wjon has been enslaved by Rhino and answers customer service calls 19 hours a day.
Sad. Someone needs to tell his wife and kids his hardship was not in vain.
Surprise appearance of Tom Constanten as an interviewee in the documentary "Rebirth of the King" about Elvis Presley in Las Vegas. Again shown on Brit T.V. over Christmas.
DaveStrange - The "mirror image" release for #37 won't happen, because the bonus disc is for the second release of the year, which will be #38 ( 9/8/73 Nassau Coliseum). The extra material is an hour + from the previous night, Sept. 9th. I listened to my audience recording of that show the day before they announced what #38 was going to contain, and it's a stellar show!
I think it would be similar to last year: #s 33 & 35 were 3 disc releases, #34 had the bonus disc and #36 was 2 shows. This year could be #37 is 2 shows, #38 would have the bonus disc, and #s 39 & 40 would be 3 disc releases.
I realize this would only occur for milestone releases like #s 36 & 37, and in the future for DaP100 (!) if the series is still going. I know the odds for another 2 show release are mighty slim, but you can always hope, wish and dream right?
With about 90 min from another show on this tour, likely to be announced in the video, which should come out around next Friday or thereabouts. Glad there's filler, been annoyed at 2 of the '78 DaPs having very short 2nd discs and no filler, with plenty of good material laying there for use. But filler is also very good because it sometimes produces some of the best material of a release. I just finished my first complete listen to DaP 35 and I'm very thankful for the filler from the night before. I found it to be the best part of the release, the Scarlet Fire was good, too, but the filler is pretty darn good. Being a beggar does prevent me from being a chooser as well as I'm hoping the filler on DaP 37 is not from 4/12/78, which was surely the best thing to ever happen in that pit of hell Cameron Indoor Stadium, and that that show is released in its entireity since I imagine it was part of the returned Bettys. That should be several years worth of DaPs down the road before hitting April '78 again, 3 is pretty high already and no Fall 1972 since DaP 11 and Hofheinz were released in 2014, but hope that Duke show can come out sometime, it is spectacular. Incredible energy, as evidenced in the video on the youtubes https://youtu.be/I_zD1_J5eYs Not every day you see Jerry doing Townshend-like windmills. Though if anybody else witnessed Jerry doing windmills at other shows, I'd love to hear about it.
On Vol 35 they printed my address and phone number wrong... only got that one b/c I happened to run into the mailman wandering in the neighborhood looking for where to deliver it （I'm a westerner in China.. and he wandered up to me asking if I knew the person with the foreign name...). He said it was the third time they sent him out to deliver it...
I know it's old hat to complain about their shipping services.. but come on guys...
Check your PM
I've emailed several times and only received one response which was to verify my mailing address. I did. That was a month ago. Crickets ever since!
Thanks, Jim - have replied.
good fun, solid shows.
....and dug it.
you are referring to Daves 36, right?
....I dig it.
