    "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.

    Is this box now sold out?…

    Is this box now sold out? They list it, but it seems like that is just some old data. Great set. I love it, but I don't have it physically. Not a huge deal, but it is very lovely.

    I keep going back to this box - superb. Especially the 1974 shows. I went so far as to get 5/19/74 and the Playing in the Band from 5/21/74 on vinyl. There are a few problems with vocals on both, but this matters not a jot. The playing, as you say, from all band members, is absorbing. After 1970 they only needed Bill on drums.

    I also agree with icecrmcnkd - a box of October 1974 with bells and whistles would make a great release.

    Late to the party, but ...

    ... just wanted to share how delighted I am with the music in this set, and encourage anyone who’s not taken the plunge to just go ahead and get it already.

    There’s been some chatter in another thread about how long it’s taking to sell out this box, and all I can say is that, as much as I love ’73 and ’74, I didn’t order mine till Rhino put it on sale. Maybe some people are settling for the 3-disc version, which is understandable, given the difference in price and given that they did manage to include some very high highlights (including the 45 minute PITB!) in that set.

    Also causing some hesitation for me was the packaging. Don’t get me wrong: it’s beautiful! The art work is amazing. But speaking as someone who already has problems finding shelf space for my CDs, I wasn’t sure where I’d put this giant box. (In case anybody upstairs is listening: I thought the June 1976 box really hit the sweet spot between packaging that was elaborate enough to make the box feel special but also small enough to not cause problems.)

    Anyway, the music. The MUSIC. For me, this era was flat out the best the band ever sounded, and it’s an incredible joy to hear them in such fine audio. There are a few “surprises,” the kind of vocal drop outs and oddities in the mix that would’ve rated a “caveat” back in the Dick’s days. Mostly, these are very temporary, and in all cases the sound is really really good once everybody settles in. As usual, Jerry’s louder than Bob, but you can hear them both very distinctly, and they constantly (constantly!) are playing their asses off. Phil’s on fire throughout. And BK? He makes a solid case here that the Dead never needed another drummer. Keith comes through nicely, and plays well. I suppose we could say that the vocals were erratic during this period, and I would admit that’s true here. But the singing is mostly good to great, and man oh man, the band sounds fantastic!

    I’ve only listened to each show once so far—given the complaints about missing discs and whatnot, I felt like I should make a point of listening all the way through to make sure nothing was amiss—so I’m not really ready to call out a favorite show, or even favorite tunes. But I will say that the PITBs, the Bird Songs, the Eyes, the China-Riders are all, for me, as good as they get. Their playing was so spontaneous, so open, so powerful, so much soul, so imperfectly perfect.

    Yes, I suppose there are other, equally worthy eras. But man, ’73 and ’74 were beautiful.

    The hour or so of music from He's Gone through the end of Wharf Rat is one of the top 5 hours of music the dead ever played.

    There, I said it. This box is worth every penny for that hour of music alone.

    Testing with Lossless Audio…

    Testing with Lossless Audio Checker shows the June 1976 FLAC download in 24/192 format ( https://store.dead.net/music/digital/june-1976-flac-192-24-1.html ) and the Pacific Northwest '73-'74- The Complete Recordings FLAC download in 24/192 ( https://store.dead.net/music/boxed-sets/pacific-northwest-73-74-the-com… ) to be "Upsampled." I have notified Jeffrey Norman and Rhino. I sent Jeffrey the logs of the LAC test results showing 80% of the June 76 files being upsampled. While he was very nice in his response, he had no explanation for the finding. Rhino has not responded to any e-mails. It is important to note that the files on both test “Clean” after downsampling to 24/96, which, likely, means the files, were originally digitized at 24/96 or digitized at 24/192 and downsampled to 24/96 for mastering. Whatever the case Rhino needs to disclose this fact on their web site or change the files for sale to 24/96.

Well said. I get '76 GD. When I am in the mood.. there is nothing more soothing. That being said, I get in the mood for just about every era if you give it enough time. When I am in the mood and find just the right show, it's like food for the soul and keeps me going. 1976. Yes please. Mattress Firm Amphitheater. They better have some really comfortable seats..

Yes, I wait all year to listen to 1976 Dead. Particularly June and July each year. So much fun. Has a little of that pre-retirement vibe, but also moving towards the tightness of 1977. The most wholly unique year in the band's history in my opinion.

Is there anything better than a '76 Scarlet or Lazy Lightning/Supplication? I wait all year to listen to the June '76 shows. They are so special. Again, the most unique year in the band's history. Where else will you find Help>Slip>Frank, St. Stephen, Cosmic Charlie and Crazy Fingers all sharing the same setlist? Disco Dancins? Not to mention High Time, stand alone Playin's and Eyes with the '74 jam (Stronger Than Dirt) at the beginning of the song. So magical Oh, and don't forget those muscular NFAs

Yes, it's sketchy, why Steve left, who wants to just play in a band when the leaders wife runs the show (a non musician running a band never works out). I remember rumors of her telling them all there would be NO drugs on tour, not even joints. When Steve got caught catching a fire, she flipped out on him, told him that Phil could not take the temptation and that druggies were not welcome. I too would have told her to go ...herself. Furthur broke up due to the drug use by the band around Jill, not Phil. In my opinion, Jill broke up the band, not drug use. Then she sells out for one more big paycheck that was FTW. Should have been called LTR (laid to rest) The FTW line up had no heart, because she has no clue what the band was meant to be and could be with the love that made them what they were. She will go down forever as the Yoko Ono of the Grateful Dead. Now, no one but Bobby will play with Phil, so, she took all the toys and went home, how's that working for you now. Phil went from one of the greats to being a restaurant owner. Sad, really sad.

What’s been posted about the FTW book is enough to appease my curiosity. I get it-- can imagine what it would be like if I was still living in a house with my old college buddies and their girlfriends. Tempers flare hottest around those you know best. Best to just go on your own and listen to some June ’76. Cat on a tin roof, dogs in a pile....

Kevjones I'm right there with you man. They don't call me Seventy-Sixtus for nothin' And never forget June 11th 1976, which I tout at least 76 times a year - an all time favorite among many other favorites in a favorite year. FAVORITE!! https://archive.org/details/gd1976-06-11.141709.sbd.miller.fixed.flac16… Tigran comes home today. I'll put some '76 on for him. Seventy-Sixtus

.......not a big fan. It seems I'm in the minority here (-all dead is good dead-) but it lacks the imagination of 72-74, and lacks the power of 77 (or 78). I'm hoping for some primal 60's or 79-81, now that I just got 6 hot shows from 73-74. But hey, I'm sure I will be happy with whatever I get. Hope everyone is well. I've been listening to a lot of Yes lately, as I'm seeing them in Detroit on Saturday. Close to the Edge is an album that always works for me.

Huge fan of 76, my 1st show was 10/9; by the fall of that year they were firing on all cylinders. Too bad(for us) they took such a long break before new year's eve, the last show 10/15 is a barn burner with one of the best 2nd sets of the year.

All this seventysixtus talk... Got the Capitol Theatre show streaming from the Download Vol4 release. Never gave those DL's the nurturing they deserve. I guess I'm biased towards the physical product I can hold in my hand... Bonus nothing better than a Mission in the Rain from 1976 unless it's one from JGB in 1978 ;)

I'm with Doc (and Thursday) on this one. 76 = The GD on Valium. Does nothing for me. Lot's of folks love it, but I get bored silly listening to it. By the way D&C seem to be headed down that path as well. The summer shows have been way to slow for my taste.

The cause of the slow tempos are detailed in the FTW book; it's all Bobby's doing: his concept is to sing the songs very slowly, to emphasize the story telling aspect of them. I'm guessing he might have gotten that from Jerry, for example when he slowed down Friend of the Devil(which I never understood: the original tempo conveyed the running from the devil exactly perfect)

To me phil comes off as playing in a Grateful Dead covers band. I never have had any interest is seeing any post dead. It seems that Bob is trying not to recreate what the dead did but pay the music homage by presenting it in a different light. I am now interested in seeing Bob again in something like his campfire band or even Dead and company. I think like the wheel he has moved on from the past and embraced the present with a view to the future. Good for you Bob and our drummers.

I can't say I'll be rushing to read this book on Fare Thee Well. From what people are saying on here it sounds ghastly. In fact, I'm amazed such a book has been published. I'm not keen on 1976, either. Some of the drifting jams appeal to me-but it sounds like a massive comedown from all the previous years to me. It seems quite an easy listening sort of year. And the shows in 1975 had such promise, too.

Was watching the rebroadcast of the Mansfield show and one of the commenters who was commenting (or was that trolling) during the broadcast was railing against the slowness and suggested changing the stream to 1.25. I did that and boy did the music seem normal pace. I felt that the D&C shows I saw at Fenway and the Boston Garden were painfully slow last year. More so than the Worcester show for that 1st D&C tour or that first Fenway run (Loved that Acoustic Dark Star). I still loved going to those shows, but after seeing D&C 7 times probably not up for the exorbitant prices the enterprise is charging for not the best seats when JRAD, JGB, DSO can scratch that itch for a lot less scratch. I'm glad the music is out there and hope they continue to perform as long as they're putting quality performances but getting a tad bit too slow for me. Bobby just needs to let John, Oteil and Jeff run with it for a bit. BTW - who is Grateful Dean (Dean Stiller) - I think he is hillarious for his YouTube reviews and seems pretty spot on.

You didn't hear it from me.. but I hear Steve Parish had Bobby's lovechild and has been raising it in secrecy all these years. It shouldn't surprise any of us that after 50 years there are squabbles. If any of you come from bigger families.. I bet there are a few skeletons in your closet too, and I bet we would be horrified if someone researched and wrote a tell-all book. The truth, we weren't there and no matter what was written there is a likely more to it then how it reads. I have no doubt it's based on real events but it seems to focus on the negative. I sincerely believe deep down inside these guys still love each other and are proud of the body of work they left behind just like I love my brothers and sisters, but I won't be moving back in with them anytime soon. I'm also sure there's a little bad blood.. I threw a screwdriver, a pair of scissors and a can of Spegetti-O's at my brother one day (although honestly.. he deserved worse). I'd like to think all is forgiven.. and honestly, I think we are better off in the way they have diversified and played / interacted with different artists. As for who is the biggest poser and the cover band aspect of it all.. Really? These guys have earned the right to play GD music how ever they see fit. I recently saw Phil Lesh and Friends backed up by the Preservation Hall Jazz Band and it was hardly a cover band. Fresh interpretations that strayed pretty far from the original arrangements. It was fresh, powerful and downright wonderful. I'd see that lineup again in a New York Minute. Let the music play.. it speaks for itself. Step to the side of the small talk and gossip. Just my opinion.. As always, I reserve the right to be tragically and horrifically wrong.

Most of the book focuses on the business dealings; what comes across as negative gossip is tied to these events. The exception being the "encounter" between Billy and Jill's twins :-) but really, it was only a quick one sentence mention.The detailed descriptions of how the post-Jerry bands evolved, how Terrapin Xroads and Bob's TRI studio came into existence, of the organizing of the FTW shows, and more are indeed quite interesting.

Old story I think, I first heard a statement similar to that was about in early 1996 just after they retired the name Grateful Dead and still deeply mourning the death their dear brother, Jerome John Garcia.

I haven't read it yet but I'm sure I eventually will (seems like the perfect book to buy in the airport before a long flight). From what I've read and heard though, all of this seems pretty tame compared to other bands "tell all" books. You mean to tell me a band that's been together since 1965 has had their ups and downs? Has had to deal with power struggles or strong personalities? I'm shocked. Also, there isn't a band in the history of bands who didn't have an incident where someone made a pass (or worse) at another guy's wife or girlfriend. Meanwhile the shows (d&c or Phil) continue to be a great time and the music coming out of the vault is as exciting as ever.

They are typically heavily processed wood (some sort of glued fibers or essentially a form of cardboard). I hope I'm wrong but doing something like this out of wood just isn't that common and production can be problematic. I am thinking something along the lines of 30 Trips. Plus.. it's painted, so they cover it up anyway. Just being realistic.. I have a ton of box sets, not just GD and the only one I have that is made out of wood is the Warlocks cigar box, and even that is pretty cheesy. ...but if it's wood, I vote for Cherry. Love Cherry, or perhaps zebra striped maple to look like Mayer's new guitar. That would be something.

This week and next.. what a wonderful thing. Plus, it's still raining here almost every day and the creeks are full.. but back to the music. I am a closet streamer.. when I am interested in something I purchase from Nugs and sometimes just don't have time to watch and listen, but they seem to stick around for a while. Last week I noticed for the first time that one of my unwatched streams was about to expire (from five years ago). Blasphemy I say. So I watched it and by the end of the night I was in no shape to start work by 8 am the next day. So I worked a half day and life was good. Tonight, in honor of my favorite GD cover band I am watching for the first time a Phil N Friends show from 2014 at the Brooklyn Bowl, Vegas (..not slated to expire). JK and Jackie Greene on Guitars.. some simply killer slide guitar on GDTRFB from Senor Greene Joe Russo on drums. Seems ok to me.. Hipsters, tripsters real good chicks sir.. everybody's Doing That Rag. It's too bad this technology wasn't around say.. 55 years ago. Oh.. and the tempo is fast, and it is loud enough to shake the plaster off the ceiling. Fortunately, the river is raging outside so ambient noise gets lost in the shuffle. I bet my neighbors can't even hear it. Life is good. Might sleep in a bit mañana (don't tell my boss).
