    "We were in the Pacific Northwest...between somewhere in Washington and some other where in Oregon. The road took us to the lip on a ridge, from where we could see around us for many miles in all directions … It was breathtaking to behold, but as we watched, we had a firm realization that we were witnessing something even more beautiful than our eyes could ever take in … Life causes life. Heaven and Earth dance in this way endlessly, and their child is the forest. And so there we were, epiphanously watching that grandest and most glorious dance of life—of which we are just a tiny part—awed by a magnificence without beginning, without end..."

    Bob Weir, “Sell Headwaters—Everyone Wins,” San Francisco Chronicle

    The Pacific Northwest offers up a rich feast of land, sky, and water. It is ripe with influences, abundant with symbols, deep and spirited. It should, therefore, come as no surprise that the Grateful Dead played some of their most inspired shows on these fertile grounds. It does, however, sometimes take a breath for the elements to re-align years later. It seems for us, they finally have and we are able to present not just a glimpse of the band's extraordinary exploratory tour through the region, but a two-tour bounty as the PACIFIC NORTHWEST ’73-’74: THE COMPLETE RECORDINGS.

    For PACIFIC NORTHWEST ’73-’74: THE COMPLETE RECORDINGS, we've paired two short runs made up of six previously unreleased shows - P.N.E. Coliseum, Vancouver, B.C. (6/22/73); Portland Memorial Coliseum, Portland, OR (6/24/73); Seattle Center Arena, Seattle, WA (6/26/73); P.N.E. Coliseum, Vancouver, Canada (5/17/74); Portland Memorial Coliseum, Portland, OR (5/19/74); and Hec Edmundson Pavilion, University of Washington, Seattle, WA (5/21/74). Each show has been mastered in HDCD from the original master tapes by Jeffrey Norman at Mockingbird Mastering. The transfers from the masters were transferred and restored by Plangent Processes, further ensuring that this is the best, most authentic that these shows have ever sounded.

    PACIFIC NORTHWEST ’73-’74: THE COMPLETE RECORDINGS comes in an ornate box created by Canada’s preeminent First Nations artist Roy Henry Vickers (more on this tremendous artist soon). To complement the music, the set also includes a 64-page book with an in-depth essay by Grateful Dead scholar Nicholas G. Meriwether and photos by Richie Pechner.

    Due September 7th, this release is limited to 15,000 individually numbered copies and available exclusively from dead.net. You'll want to grab a copy while you can and sit back, relax, and enjoy all the exclusive content we'll be rolling out over the next few weeks.

    Looking for something a little more byte-sized? The collection will also be available for HD digital download in FLAC and ALAC, exclusively at dead.net, on release day. You can pre-order it now too.

    Get it while you can.

    6/24/73 is so smoking to me …

    6/24/73 is so smoking to me , this dark star into eyes is AMAZING! I’m surprised the dark star didn’t make the cut for the compilation but it’s still an amazing selection from these 6 shows to create the 3 cd compilation. Some incredible mind bending jams inside this treasure chest!;)

    Listening to it now, Daverock

    The flip is sort of at a slow point.
    But, it does sound great, both sides.
    Enjoy!

    My mistake-icecrmcnkd

    Yes, that makes sense - Playing doesn't normally feature drums anyway. I think you got a real bargain-I paid the equivalent of 26 dollars, which was still considerably cheaper than everyone else was selling it for.

    Yes Daverock

    I got it, I think it was $20 or $22.
    I don’t recall that the flip is during Drums, I think that it’s between a slow, low volume section.
    I do recall that I enjoyed listening to it. :)

    Did anyone get the Playing in the Band from this show that came out on vinyl last year? I saw it on ebay in the early hours and had a poke round to see if there were any references to it. I couldn't find any, so I decided to take a punt anyway. It reminds me of the Dark Star from Paris 5/4/72 that came out on vinyl a while back, in that it is just that one track, split into two sides during drums. That works for me, so I have high hopes for this one.

    Thank you so much for your response. I’m kinda just a bit obsessive about sound, aren’t we all on these threads!, 😀 and glad to know it is not just me but the master tapes. It was your comments about the China—>Rider bridge that made me go back to this show to hear it again. Peace and thanks.

Yessssss....got my order in first with no troubles, finally the pre-order Gods have smiled on me! Luckily without having to go through PayPal, I've also managed to secure myself some time saving up after the charges drop-off. And I scored a ticket for the Dead and Co. show in Hartford tomorrow, what a fantastic lunch break!

Very excited to see these getting the treatment. Wondering why the crucial 72' Seattle and Portland shows are not in this. Those 3 years(72', 73', 74') tell such a story and are the most coveted recordings in general. I am however very grateful...

Love love love this. We got our Summer '73 box! Summer dead always makes me smile, and 2 summers worth is a real treat. And the option of multi year boxes opens up the possibility of a multi year MSG, or Boston, Berkeley, Alpine, Shoreline,(enter any city here) boxes. Dizzying.... the possibilities.

I'm always excited when a new release will be a great improvement over what I have. This looks like it will be that. I ordered both cd and vinyl. (don't tell the wife) On the ordering front,,, maybe it was so easy because it seemed to be on the downlow. I didn't (or at least haven't gotten one yet) an email announcement. Maybe they thought less splash would help "fans" get theirs before "ebayers". So, in the next 3 months, a new 45, Aoxomoxoa, DaP 27 and a box set! Wow, that large sucking sound is coming from your wallet!

Wish I was a headlight.. on a North(west) bound train. Well, the next best thing, Providing the shipping gnomes treat me well, I will be transported there come September. Whoo Hoo. This looks to be a spectacular box. I decide to have some desert and scored the t-shirt too. The sun gonna shine in my back door someday (in September). ah yes, that sucking sound from the wallet. It hurts, but it should heal by September. Peace all.. Thanks Dave.

I feel like Hawkeye in MASH when he ordered from "Adams Ribs". The food got to Korea and a supply sergeant asked about the coleslaw and chided Hawk for going thru all the hassle to get ribs and NOT ordering the slaw. I didn't order the shirt! Back to the order page. Suck, suck, suck, suck, suck,,,, my credit card is bleeding from the spanking I'm giving it!

$53.99 for shipping to Europe. It may be an oversize item, but for that sort of shipping price I would expect it to be delivered by private jet, not standard shipping. However, this is a not-to-be-missed item for sure.

Now that would be something! Imagine conflating two box sets together just to confuse the hell out of us. That would be treat, showing up at MUATM and getting a reveal of not this box but ANOTHER release! Shipping says oversize item, I've got this one to be the best packaging presentation yet, going for another box set packaging Grammy I presume, eh Dead?

My hands were just a blur on the keyboard when I realised this was available, so it didn't really register how much the shipping was. Its a lot..but its worth it! I'm wondering now whether to buy the vinyl for 19th May 1974, seeings as how it can be ordered on Amazon.

The box must be Spring 1990 sized. Although I think that was still cheaper in shipping. Oh well, what's not to like with 6 amazing pre-hiatus shows. Now, complete a terrific year with a 60's DaP and a 90's DaP, I say!

So... I'd been patiently waiting for the box set announcement, and this DID NOT DISAPPOINT! These shows are all really good. The Vancouver show from 6/22/73 (my 3rd Birthday, I might add) is absolutely top-notch. To me, it's in the same conversation w/ Veneta, Cornell, Englishtown, Bickershaw and acoustic/electric shows at the Fillmore East. I cannot wait for this gem to show up on my porch! Peace, brothers and sisters. 10 days until Alpine Valley!

Looks like an awesome box & it was easy to pull the trigger since I won a couple of hundred bucks on Justify in the Belmont Stakes on Saturday. Great horse & great timing for a great box set. Honestly, I would have bought the box anyway, but having that extra cash made it much easier
