    Individually Numbered, Limited Edition of 13,000

    Steamboats and BBQ, ice cream cones and Mardi Gras - are you ready to laissez les bons temps rouler with the "gateway" to the Grateful Dead? Meet us, won't you, in St. Louis for seven complete and previously unreleased Dead concerts that capture the heart of the band's affinity for the River City.
     
    LISTEN TO THE RIVER: ST. LOUIS ’71 ’72 ’73 is a 20CD set featuring five shows from the Fox Theatre - December 9 and 10, 1971; October 17-19, 1972; and two from the Kiel Auditorium - October 29 and 30, 1973. 
     
    The seven shows in the collection span slightly less than two years, but they represent some of the best shows the Grateful Dead played during some of its peak tours. The music tells the story of a band evolving, changing from one sound to another seamlessly, precipitated – in large part – by significant personnel changes in the Dead’s lineup.
     
    The two 1971 shows feature the original Grateful Dead lineup plus newcomer Keith Godchaux on piano. This version of the band would hold together for the next six months as the Dead embarked upon its Europe ’72 tour. By the time the Dead returned to the Fox Theatre less than a year later, they were without Pigpen, who’d played his final show with the Dead at the Hollywood Bowl on June 17, 1972. A year after the exceptional Fox 1972 shows, the Dead came back to St. Louis, but played the much larger Kiel Auditorium, touring behind the release of WAKE OF THE FLOOD, which came out just two weeks before.
     
    All told, the band played 60 different songs during these shows highlighted by blazing romps through “Beat It On Down The Line” and “One More Saturday Night” and wistful takes on “Row Jimmy” and “Brokedown Palace” (whose lyrics give the collection its name). Meanwhile, the copious jamming ebbed and flowed like the mighty Mississippi River on multiple voyages through “The Other One” and “Dark Star.” Naturally, the band paid tribute to one of its favorite rock and rollers and one of St. Louis’ biggest stars by playing Chuck Berry songs at every show in the collection, including Pigpen galloping through “Run Rudolph Run.”  
     
    Each show has been restored and speed corrected using Plangent Processes with mastering by Jeffrey Norman. The collection comes in a slipcase with artwork by Liane Plant and features an 84-page hardbound book as well as other Dead surprises. To set the stage for the music, the liner notes provide several essays about the shows, including one by Sam Cutler, the band’s tour manager during that era, and another by Grateful Dead scholar Nicholas G. Meriwether, among others. 
     
    Due October 1st, LISTEN TO THE RIVER: ST. LOUIS ’71 ’72 ’73, is limited to 13,000 individually numbered copies and available exclusively from Dead.net.

    A lack of excitement for #41

    All my "insights," in retrospect (that is, moments after I press "save") are painfully obvious, yet I post them anyway... Oh well, maybe that's how it goes in one's 60s... I'm only six months from 65 and still getting used to yelling "Get off my (shitty) lawn!" even when there's no one there. My hair and beard are getting long and I don't shower but every 4-5 days. Why bother?

    Oh, my point. #41, which is 5-26-77 if memory serves (there I go again), seems to be generating zero excitement. I think this is because spring '77 is so well-represented by official releases that we all know what to expect. Sure, a real, reliably rockin show, but nothing we haven't heard before. Pleasure to be had? Certainly. But I'll bet they had this selected and mixed long ago, freeing up time and effort for this year's "projects" -- a box (apparently Rhino prefers 20-CD boxes, per Dave's Listen liner notes) and ... what else? Something else, as Dave said one project had to be bumped to 2023, they were so freakin' busy. So, perhaps, something related to the 50th of 1972? A six-show revisit of E72?? It's been out 11 years and individual shows are OOP.

    Another amazingly obvious point: I'll bet there's a ton of film and audio left over from the GD Movie and 2024 would be the 50th and the time to release it. Okay, sonic issues could complicate matters (see Steal Your Face). I'm still not used to the heavy reverb-drenched 4-CD "movie soundtrack," but it established that they must have some audio in decent shape. I could see Dave & Co. dialing up all the complete audio that they have video for and putting it out, plus bonus audio. There's been total silence on this notion, indicating to me that a) it's possible, b) I'm laughably off the mark.

    So, after PNW and Listen to the River, which delivered 13 full shows in my '71-'74 wheelhouse, I'm utterly without guesses as to the 2022 box. Still, I shamelessly say that it could be a location with shows over time (theme of aforementioned box sets) or a focus on an under-represented year such as '79. (Because it has a "7" in it and because they'll need 6-7 shows to hit Rhino's sweet spot. I'm less excited for the music (it's unknown), but will be fascinated by the choice. Oh yeah, it's January. Probably no news for 4-5 months...

    29 days with a boot on my leg and 7 to go before I start rehab (on the ankle, that is). And I'm taking out my antsy-ness on my good brothers here. Oh cruel world!

    layers - HF

    To add another layer, I knew absolutely nothing about the origin of any of the songs on "American Beauty" when I first heard it -and I still thought it was wonderful. And still do. That's another layer of Robert Hunter's skill- not only did he write lyrics that seemed to express the feelings of band members, in doing so, he also got through to people as far away as me-a teenager living in another country. I think I've just re-phrased something you already said! Anyway.

    And, yes, they should definitley release 8/21/68 in it's entirety. I don't think too many people would complain if they dropped the comic this time around.

    Frankie Hart (Weir)

    I don't think Frankie Weir died until sometime later, perhaps in the early 2000's as a result of declining health perhaps related to Lupus? They broke up in 1975 I believe. I think her real name was Judy Azzara with Azzara being a married name.

    I might not be 100% correct in the above, if anyone has any better detail please feel free to clarify.

    We HAVE a wayback machine, but it's ...

    in the Vault. I finally looked up the show they released on vinyl only with the "Origins" comic book. It's a 30-minute slice (released) of a much longer show. And if they have it all in the Vault, then this will be my new mantra, bellowed at the top of my lungs as the Wayback Machine rattles and purrs prior to take-off:

    08/21/68
    Fillmore West - San Francisco, CA
    Set 1:
    Cryptical Envelopment
    Drums
    The Other One
    Cryptical Envelopment
    Good Morning Little School Girl
    Alligator
    Set 2:
    Dark Star*
    St. Stephen*
    The Eleven*
    Death Don't Have No Mercy*
    Turn On Your Love Light
    Encore:
    Midnight Hour

    *released on vinyl

    Now that "Origins" has proved to be a pathetic flop, may we please have this '68 extravaganza in its entirety? I sense that this show would require buckling up or one risks the possibility of being thrown off the Wayback Machine. And who knows where you land when that happens....

    1970 box. set

    Very cool! They should just release whatever they have from 1970 as 1 big box set. That would be a knockout!

    The Way-Back Machine

    I've always been curious about that time machine. Mr. Peabody and his boy Sherman travel as they are now. I was hoping we could go back with a Matrix style residual self image but without all the guns. (We're gonna need backup!) If it's 1970 I would be 13, but with what I know now? Or maybe you get the experience AND the memory of it when you get back. Ideally I would be 21 or so with my 64 year old experiences intact but without the forgetfulness. I never read the instructions until after I've screwed it up though, so this could go badly. But what the hell, I'm in!
    Cheers
    Edit: Jim, are there fees involved? A dress code? Snacks and drinks served, or is it too short a flight? I think I'll wait until the snow melts if it's at your place in MD.

    Excellent point, DR

    To add a layer, consider that Robert Hunter wrote all the words (except 'Operator') that captured the emotions and thoughts to which you refer, experienced by individuals and the group -- that's a feat, considering the lyrical craft in evidence. Lyrics that live inside millions of people and, arguably, permeated generations.

    Truckin's "What a long, strange trip it's been..." is obvious, but how about some of the lines and the tone of, say, Attics of My Life, "where all the print is blurred..."

    Just wow. When Hunter died, hot tears caught me by surprise.

    the other thing about 1970 -

    To state the obvious, is that the songs on "Workingman's Dead" and "American Beauty" had only just been written. I have read in various places that Altamont, the New Orleans bust, the death of Phil Lesh's father and Bob Weir's girlfiriend Frankie all directly inspired certain songs. So when they sang and played them, they were singing about their lives as they were being lived, in that moment. Inevitabley, with the passing of the time, the songs get more distanced from their source of inspiration. Some may suffer from this, and some may grow - but there is something special, for me, about the moment of creation - when something is being explored for the first time.

    Other years have a similar quality - it must have been incredible to see them in 1968 when nothing remotley like it had ever been unleashed before

    If you read the instructions, it says to avoid setting the dials to 8/27/72. Apparently, the pole in question was toxic, which would not have been a big deal if Pole Guy was wearing proper attire. A tragic moment in GD History. A raise of the glass to Pole Guy, careful with the wayback folks.

I ordered that thing back in May..lol..last I heard said shipping September 6th..anyone get theirs?

One week delay, I can live with that.
Why is there a delay?
It could be one or more problems, namely manufacturing problems such as mis-stamped discs, low raw stock, and of course, labor problems - too many plant employees are out sick because of COVID-19.
Who really knows.

Got my shipping notice on the Ashes vinyl w/ slipmat.

The big Fox 71 vinyl appears to be pushed out to mid November here and amazon. Looks like the cd format for the show is available on schedule.

I'd rather have the crack equipment crew get it just right then deal with Warner getting things rectified...

The date on the Digital taste has not moved so we'll get some first impressions in the meantime.

Wouldn't it be cool to let us boxers get a one show digital miracle as a nice delay gesture and it lets us dip our toes in that new technology ;)

Exactly why I switched to digital copies...

Production delays, poor pressing of CDs, (took almost 8 months to get replacement Giants Stadium box cds.), damaged box with shipping and countless days waiting for a reply.
Can't wait to see, if this will cause a stir on the last Dave's Pick.
Can we switch, Dave's picks, to a digital release option?

How hard can it be to pass on accurate information? As others have noticed, the release date of the box as shown on the product page was changed from October 1 to October 8. Now we get an order update mail that gives the release date as October 1. The logical assumption is that the update mail was composed by a retard and as such it can be ignored and that we can expect a week's delay in the shipping of the box. As for the 5 LP set, the new release date of November 14 corresponds to the release date given on Amazon so I think we can assume that that is accurate.

This shipping notice seems to have added to the confusion rather than cleared it. My axe to grind concerns reference to the 5 L.P. release date, which I received along with the one for the box of cds. I didn't order the 5 L.P.set-but I did order the Light Into Ashes album, and there was no mention of that in the email I recieved. Maybe it was just a generic and incomplete email I recieved-but more worryingly, it might be a warning that they are going to send me the wrong album ! I think I'd better spend tomorrow trying to contact them to make sure they aren't going to do this.

I know I used to get all wound up too, waiting in the audience when the scheduled start time for a GD concert came and went, but eventually the lights went down and we all had a real good time.

To distract you from the box set blues, I will mention that my favorite music to listen to on a long bike ride or run is string quartets. They're so personal that they sink straight into my psyche, and then tell such a good long story that I can get very lost in them for 20+ minutes, just like in an exploratory Playin' or Dark Star. Lately it's been Vivaldi, Britten, Elliott Carter, and Nielsen.

Also--I've finally been listening to the shows I attended, and have made it to my third show, which was 9/4/91. Sounds pretty hot to my ears, especially the Jack Straw, Cold Rain, Promised, and He's Gone. But the top highlight, for those who want to get a small sample, is the killer Scarlet-->Fire to kick off set two. I was fortunate to have started my live GD journey in 1991, as they were still bringing the X Factor a lot that year. I welcome any releases from 1991.

... is the only part of the St. Louis collection that will be on time?
That's all I ordered for now.
My tracking says 10-1-21 now.
Have not received any stray notices about the other products.
Surprised the CD box has not sold out.
Good luck to all, Cheers!

WW - thanks for the heads up. Just ordered the CD.

I'm guessing the start shipping date of 10/1 and arrive date of 10/8 includes the 3 trips around the loading dock and the innovation dance between USPS and UPS in the states.

Would love to see a box unveiling video...

November 14, 2021 as new shipping date per e-mail. 😟

Should get Garcia Live: Vol 17 around that time as
well.
Edit:

Reread email: Now they’re just trying to confuse me. The prior e-mail told me I might be interested in items including Daves 39 & Daves 39. 😳

Please don’t email me guys. I don’t check for shipping notices and after the Giants Stadium box, I am pleased and pleasantly surprised even if an order arrives 10 months late.

Seems odd to get a notice from “the Dead.net team” that due to “production delays” the Listen to the River box will “begin shipping October 1, 2021.” Because, wasn’t that always the announced release date? In other news, Generalissimo Francisco Franco is still dead.

In the same email, I am informed that the 12-10-71 lp set will begin shipping November 14. Even though I didn’t order that set. Which seems weird because it would be really easy to send a separate email to everybody who ordered that set, if that's the only thing that changed.

Which makes me wonder: did somebody just put the wrong date on the Listen to the River announcement? Was it supposed to say "delayed until October 8" or something?

So, on the one hand, they’re trying. On the other hand, this is not very effective communication. Bottom line, I can’t tell what, if anything, has changed with regard to my order.

Just checking my emails, I notice I got one on Monday telling me that Light Into Ashes is on its way. A bit surprising - it looks as though that one is out ahead of schedule.

Colin-I saw some clips of Memphis 69 via Michael Messers website (great slide guitarist incidentally), and it does indeed look excellent. I think it was the same one-features Bukkha White.

Dave, That’s right. It’s also got Sleepy John Estes, Furry Lewis and Mississippi Fred McDowell. Well worth having. There must be a lot more footage so I hope it has been preserved for the future.

Yes, Iv'e been intending to get the cd they made for some time now. His solo albums are good too. And those resonators he endorses are a constant temptation-especially the White Lightning.

Colin-typing at the same time! - I'll head over to Amazon for further investigation I think.

In an ideal world, you receive the product on the release date. So to be released on Oct 1st, it has to be shipped a few days prior. So shipping on Oct 1st, means it will really be on the streets Oct 8

In any case, it is it nice to know they are still thinking of us, albeit belatedly

They paint bulls eyes on the labels and use them for target practice at the warehouse. I wouldn't hold your breath...

But at least the cogs have begun to move.

Truckin', got my chips cashed in
Keep truckin', like the do-dah man
Together, more or less inline
Just keep truckin' on
Arrows of neon and flashing marquees out on Main Street
Chicago, New York, Detroit and it's all on the same street
Your typical city involved in a typical daydream
Hang it up and see what tomorrow brings
Dallas, got a soft machine
Houston, too close to New Orleans
New York got the ways and means
But just won't let you be
Most of the cats that you meet on the street speak of true love
Most of the time, they're sittin' and cryin' at home
One of these days they know they better be goin'
Out of the door and down to the street all alone
Truckin', like the do-dah man
Once told me, "You've got to play your hand"
Sometimes the cards ain't worth a dime
If you don't lay 'em down
Sometimes the light's all shinin' on me
Other times, I can barely see
Lately, it occurs to me
What a long, strange trip it's been
What in the world ever became of sweet Jane?
She lost her sparkle, you know she isn't the same
Livin' on reds, vitamin C, and cocaine
All a friend can say is, "Ain't it a shame?"
Truckin', up to Buffalo
Been thinkin', you got to mellow slow
It takes time, you pick a place to go
And just keep truckin' on
Sittin' and starin' out of the hotel window
Got a tip they're gonna kick the door in again
I'd like to get some sleep before I travel
But if you got a warrant, I guess you're gonna come in
Busted, down on Bourbon Street
Set up, like a bowlin' pin
Knocked down, it gets to wearin' thin
They just won't let you be
You're sick of hangin' around and you'd like to travel
Get tired of travelin', you want to settle down
I guess they can't revoke your soul for tryin'
Get out of the door and light out and look all around
Sometimes the light's all shinin' on me
Other times, I can barely see
Lately, it occurs to me
What a long, strange trip it's been
Truckin', I'm a goin' home
Whoa, whoa, baby, back where I belong
Back home, sit down and patch my bones
And get back truckin' on

Songwriters: Jerome J. Garcia / Philip Lesh / Robert Hall Weir / Robert C. Christie Hunter

I was there as well. That three show run was hot. The first night on 9/4/91 is a well played show with big jams. The middle night was well played but mellow. The third night of 9/6 was epic. From the Stranger opener through Bird Song may be the best 2st set this line-up performed that year. The second set is the best combo of Victim > Crazy Fingers > Playin > Terrapin > Jam then they came back with a Dark Star Jam out of Drumz. The show that tops this is 9/26/91.

For those keeping score (and I think we ALL are by now) I got my shipping confirmation for the Light into Ashes Lp and the slipmat, but not for the main event box set yet. So Im thinking that did get bumped by a few days but other items are starting to ship. Good luck all! I was hoping this might actually be in hand or on the way this weekend but looks probably not

Out for delivery apparently!!! Shipped from Riverside, CA....luckily I lived 30 miles away. It usually takes 3-4 days to snake its way around the LA region.

As with the DaP 39 release, I received an email from the above source, stating release is imminent…your loyal business is valued…are there any concerns you may have?…
In short, a very customer-focussed note.

Is everyone else receiving these as we await official launch, binoculars in hand, cold drinks at the ready?

My first shows were at The Boston Garden on Fall Tour 91. I’ve always longed for a Fall 91 Box Set. Grate music and good times!

Boston Garden 91, 9/20 was my 2nd show and one of my favorites that I ever saw, 'cause of Bruce's pie-anner. I'd thoroughly enjoy a 91 Box. Dicks Picks 17 is one of my all time favorites for the same reason.

No shipping notice yet for this behemoth, but did get the email update it should go out tomorrow. Cue the passenger pigeons in bomber jackets and leather flight caps with circular goggles.

So glad this showed up a day early to help satisfy the hunger left by the big box's somewhat imminent arrival. On the Phil-o Stomp portion of Dark Star, and the Playing was excellent and deep, the first part of Dark Star was immediately exploratory as they had only briefly left deep jams for Billy's drum solo. Jerry plays some really pretty things early on. The China> Rider Connection Jam after the Phil-o Stomp is fantastic and so unexpected (even though I used to listen to this set all the time years ago), what a way to transition to D to then go to Dm for Dew, with Phil dropping them in perfectly. Wow! Okay gonna shut these fingers up and enjoy this Dew. Hope everybody gets their shipments soon and all intact and unsullied.

Oh, and the "Formless Reflections" vinyl? It's real, and it's spectacular!

From this site CD release date moved form 1st to 8th and now the 15th of October. The 5 album vinyl edition has now slipped to the 19th of Nov. I ordered both. I wonder if they will ship together or separately.
Light into Ashes vinyl (10-18-72) arrived yesterday

The only show available for download is 12/9/71. When will we see the rest?

I do hope they get this box on the plane soon,keeping on postponing the release date is becoming a drag, it could end up with no one here to pay customs and take delivery if this carries on. I'm not sure how long customs will hold onto goods without payment, or an acceptable delivery window, if fees are paid, what a" Cock Up"
