    "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.

    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.

    Crow told me-spot on

    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.

Shit... just being realistic, I was thinking simply painted pine: it's cheap, it's light-weight, and it's a dominant tree from the region in which the shows were played. Anyway, I guess we'll see when it comes... The only boxed sets I own are Winterland '73 and May 1977: Get Shown the Light (All Music Edition). My favorite era for the Dead is '73-'74; of what few albums I own, Dick's Picks, Vol. 14 and Winterland '73 have blown me away like no other, though I have to say One from the Vault (8/13/1975) is phenomenal, too.

I would have much preferred a box the size of the May ‘77 or July ‘78 box. Those fit nicely on a shelf. I think Dave and the gang are getting to hung up on trying to win a Grammy for presentation. IMHO Rock on

I wonder if they can make box sets out of bamboo wood more cheaply, and paint over it. Probably not, but we have a bamboo floor in our cottage out back, and it sure is purty. Listening to Jimmy Raney Live in Tokyo right now. Like they say, rock guitarists play 3 chords in front of a thousand people, and jazz guitarists play a thousand chords in front of 3 people. I'm one of those three people this morning. Jimmy was a bebop god with nonstop taste.

Greetings gang,I tried to read as many posts as I could before posting this so I wasn't repeating anything, and didn't see the question asked, so ... Is it possible that GD will release an "all music edition" for this box like they did with "Get Shown the Light"? I love the work they put into all these special packaging, but all I really want are the CD's in a nice digipack (like the Fillmore West box, or even the Winterland '73 or '77 box). I have oversized boxes (like the Spring '90 box, Get Shown The Light etc.) that are just sitting around taking up space. The "extras" are nice too, but they all stay in the box never seeing the light of day. I never even checked them out once for fear of getting fingerprints on them and then they would no longer be "mint". Don't get me wrong, I am super psyched about the Pacific Northwest box, but when I see the actual box pictured, I do not know what I would do with that. I am too old-school to do a FLAC download too. I am a CD collector, not a file or box collector. Any Thoughts? Thanks, friscokid77

My highly uninformed guess is no. If the ole shopping cart count trick is at all accurate, sales on this thing are unusually slow. So slow in fact that I am doubting the data. You are still able to put 10k in the cart which is the arbitrary ceiling limit on all products indicating less than 5k sold - not sure I believe that. If anything, I think we may see 5/19/74 as a stand alone CD release later. 6/22/73 can stand on its own performance wise but I think the expected significant audience patches would keep that one from being a stand alone release. Come to think of it, the first half dozen or so numbers on 5/19/74 have serious mix issues. That's probably why they went with the compilation the way they did even though it likely has the 7 minute audience patch in the 6/22/73 Other One. Yeah, my guess is definitely no, but, as Sgt Schutlz says, "I Know Nothing!"

Yes, I agree with most your of comments concerning box sets. I personally prefer ones that are economically packed, taking up as little space as possible. The 1973 and 1977 boxes were perfect. Like yourself, I don't listen to or buy downloads-so I do like cds-just not the suitcases that they sometimes come in. I am not overly keen on extras, either. Things like replicas of tickets don't hold a lot of interest for me, I'm afraid. I thought this one was going to sell out really quickly, too.

In general I agree with those of you who would rather just have the CDs come in a package that fits right into my CD shelving... That's what I love about the Phish boxed sets I own, like Amsterdam '97 & Chicago '94. The CDs are in little sleeves and the sleeves are in a no-nonsense, paperboard box that takes up very little space; it fits right on my CD shelf with the rest of my CDs. Awesome! I, too, find the Get Shown the Light box to be kind of nuisance; sure, the packaging art is beautiful, but in the end, it just sits there, awkwardly, on the carpet, leaning against the side of my CD shelf. That said, I'm really diggin' the art on this one... I think I'll put it atop my bookcase.

I never liked I Need a Miracle. I'm just not into the lyrics. So they played this at the Blossom show I saw last week. During the line, "I need a woman bout twice my age" I realized.. Bobby is 70 now (I think).. so that means he needs a woman that's 140 years old. Silly. Ok, rant over.. now a random song I really like that they are doing now.. Viola Lee Blues. Now that's a cool song. Love it, love that they are giving it some love.

I was just trying to leave things on a positive note.. Of all the things the GD left us.. the value of the songs reigns supreme. I like perhaps 98% of them.. They left us with some great songs. It's a petty thing, but the song seems out of place in their repertoire. Anyway.. pivoting.. They are playing a lot of Summer 1985 on Today in GD History. Great summer shows. Saw a post referencing the 6/27/84 Merriweather Show.. I loved that run.. we walked to the show from my parents house, which made it practically impossible to get into any serious trouble. I am pretty sure I had buddies camping out in the back yard for the last two Merriweather runs.. So much fun.. not sure what the neighbors thought of it all. 06/27/84 Merriweather Post Pavilion - Columbia, MD Set 1: Jack Straw Friend Of The Devil Little Red Rooster Cumberland Blues My Brother Esau Loser Let It Grow Set 2: Help On The Way Slipknot!

They did some nice cherry pickin here between 73 and 74, great shows between a stellar year ,73 and (Wall of Sound) 74. Would have loved to have had the privilege to have sat with Dave and Jeffrey for a day and watch them mix and master this stuff. Great He's Gone. Jim

At 48 years of age, there are precious few tangible items in this world that give me that pit-o-the-tummy tickle of pure childlike joy. The gorgeous boxes that carry the wondrous Grateful Dead music are one of the few. Pulling a plastic case off the CD shelf carries none of the magic that carefully opening the past five (or so) GD boxed sets does. The creak of the TTATS hinge brings me peals of laughter, and gently going through the process of pulling out a disc from GSTL builds the anticipation of hearing the music like nothing else. Thank you for the beauteous packaging! Other than people, GD music is the best thing in my life, and I love that it receives such gorgeous attire.

I like Box Sets also. They are deep dives into the music. FW69 was my wake-up. Holy Shit. E72, Winterland 73/77. Warlocks. Spring 90, the cheap seats and the Multi-Track shows. July 78, The 77 Wonders, 30 Trips, etc. Combined they are simply Wowwie Wowwie. What a plethora of incredible shows and discs. They really are my go to when I need inspiration or mood altering inputs. As for packing and artwork, we seem to get that almost for free when you look at the price per disc/show. I do dig it, but I am also running out of space.. my office has become almost a shrine of sorts and I can't bring myself to put up more shelves, it just gets more crowded. I love the artwork of this box, but I hope it is the last large sized offering. I also think the box sets represent the best value, best listening pleasure yielding weapon Dave & Company have to offer. You are either in or you are out.. and if you are in, you might as well be all in. This box is worth it just for PNE alone. '73 and '74, to me, represent a high-water mark.

Just got the scratch to preorder the PNW shows. Can’t believe there were still CDs left! Grew up in the Bay Area, but never saw the band live until the May 19/21 ’74 shows. Only two days apart yet completely different sets, both perfectly attuned to the vibes in those cities: spacey blues in Portland and rock-n-roll in Seattle. No other band could handle that breadth. (Some say the Portland show was boring, but I was trippin’ so it was sweet.) Still waiting for the ’80 show in Portland. Different time, different vibe, but the band opened the 2nd set with Fire On The Mountain just as St. Helens erupted in perfect synchronicity. Drove home wrapped in a fog of volcanic ash!

Box Set fever, it's driving me crazy! Only one Dark Star, blugh. This thing would be sold out by now if every show had Dark Star! I guess there's no getting around sticking with a common theme. I would have done two shows from 72, two shows from 73, and the two 1974 shows that are left that have a Dark Star that's not released yet, June 23rd and July 25th. Granted we got part of the Dark Star from June 23rd on so many roads, but it's incomplete. Then I would have called the box set "Dark Star Fever" That's a bunch of kidding really. I can't wait for this effing thing to come out!

Lotsa of talk about the quality and size of the box, but what I really want to know is how these individual discs will be packaged! Honestly, it can make or break a purchase of this size for me. I LOATHED the packaging of the GSTL box (I was one of the unlucky many who had to have discs replaced) and don't relish the idea of finding proper jewel cases to house 19 discs, leaving two big empty ornate boxes to take up unnecessary space. That said, this release is catnip for me, as 74-77 are my 'buy on sight' years, so I'm probably going to take the plunge. Also, that 5/22 "Bird Song" is magnificent. Hoping for an 'unboxing' video before I pull the trigger, though.

All the fuss over the packageing. Remember when we used to not get more than 1 or 2 releases a year. remember One From The Vault? I'm just damn glad we are getting anything. How can you complain about how its packaged, and not mention the FORTY-SEVEN MINUTE Playin' in the Band.Thanks Dave keep up the good work. maybe the acoustic sets of 1970 can find a way out 09-20-1970 is a good start.

First, the '68 Janis. Second, Merle and Doc Watson. Third, the Allman Brothers' remaining tapes from Feb. 11, 13 & 14, 1970 at Fillmore East, beyond the one-disc set released in 1997. And, apparently, two other bands/shows, all announced and/or released within a month's time. If you're an archival tape monster (correct audience, r-r-right?), you owe it to yourself to get the Janis, Doc Watson and ABB releases (sensational acoustic guitar sound on Doc Watson's box). And I throw a $50/year donation to the Owsley Foundation to keep the digital archiving going. If you put I think $400 down for a specific band they won't tell you what specific show you supported, but if it gets released, your name is on it.

I grew up road-tripping with the family from the Bay Area to the San Juan Islands over many Summers. The PNW artwork resonates with my childhood. I know i'm going to get it, and after that Birdsong listening party, i'm gonna get it soon. My guess is it's smaller than it looks, cause my eyes always see desirable things bigger than they are.Lookin' forward to Dead at the Dump (shoreline amphitheater, previous landfill) on Tuesday.... Cousins of the Pioneers, sent a PM on your offer...nice. All the best for the trail...

Easy Wind! In my aging body that is something I wish for. Edit: miss Mr. Grease...wish like hell I had gotten to see him. Hope much more hidden footage is going to see the lovelight of day!
