    "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.

Hot tip about the Owsley sets! All I could see was a Merle and Doc Watson box on their site. Which certainly looks cool . . . But the entire Allmans run from Fillmore Feb. 70 ?!!! Do you have a link for a pre order or anything?

I'm really excited to listen to these shows... there's something magical about the first time I journey through a Dead show I've never heard... It is for this reason, I am choosing not to listen to the glimpses being shared with us, such as the first glimpse and this Listening Party... Believe me, it's a white-knuckling effort. In the mean time, I'm glad to hear good things from those of you who are listening... damn; I'm really psyched about this boxed set!!!

6/28/1991 Carlos Santana opened just after having been released from an arrest at the Mexico border. Mile High Stadium was the last stop on the tour. Some cat we fed for free in Kansas found some butter for us so we could continue our grilled cheese sales.Great end to a stellar tour!

Listening to Eagles gems, in honor of what passes for their remains playing across town tonight at the baseball field. Ever since Felder left, it hasn't been the same for me. And with Frey dead, adding Vince Gill and Frey Jr. just isn't enough. Joe Walsh is the lone remaining draw. Oh, and I suppose Tim Schmit singing, "I Can't Tell You Why" once more. Beautiful song. The deluxe reissue of Guns N' Roses "Appetite For Destruction" just arrived. Along with AC/DC's "Back In Black," one of the two greatest hard rock albums of all time. I can't put any other record in that conversation - it's a closed club. I'm going to wait until tomorrow to give it a first, loud as hell listen in the car. Seems appropriate. \m/

From a Jerry fan So.. I was at that Dead n Co. mess in Camden on June 2nd which was purchased with funds from a cancelled Ft Lauderdale show December 2017. Well the wait was not worth it! Within mins. of 10pm Lights-On, Camden police were walking the concrete tunnel/sidewalk around the base of mud-hill yelling "SHOWS OVER - GO HOME" At almost the same time, however most of the paid venue staff in red shirts were getting conflicting information thru their coms and told us to "Remain inside, the show would continue". All said with a straight face as the band's bus quietly exited for hotel before any of us could get to our cars neatly parked just across the street. We were held in there for 1 hour! Some packed into the bathroom/vending area with NO return to the venues many empty seats. WTF was that about? Camden is alot of gypsy park lots $30 one day, VIP $70 the next. Zero for us cause we are from S. Jersey.(leukemia piss pot of deregulation) There was no reason to prevent people from leaving the venue except to keep others from the hill, outside. The lighting which was sporadic at best was mostly across the river in Philly n gone by then. I'm done with Dead n Co. (weak tea) No more shows for me and who needs em' with NUGS n edibles n legalization. The 80's Dead-Belt was a great alternative to college and Taper was a good fit for me. But when you don't make a single stage announcement to Bid Us Good'Night and just split the scene, well allow us to do the same. PS: I ordered my box too.

Get over it. 11:00 hard curfew. Well known. And not being treated properly? Good one. NJ is the biggest pisshole the band ever played. Totally obnoxious and abusive security.

Haven't been posting here much the past year and a half but felt compelled to sing the praises of 6-28-74. I remember the joy of discovery when I first got that tape many years ago. I'm a strongly opinionated "complete show guy" but DiP12 is among the best releases I have. Sugar Mags through the end is just incredible and the "jam" on disc 3 is just exactly what I love the most about this band. This really is what it is all about for me.I know that everyone has their sweet spot but I'm WAY more excited about this box than the GSTL box (not that I don't dig that one, I do). I just feel that 6-22-73 and 5-19-74 are perfect examples of the many shows that are much better than any played after the hiatus. It's cool with me if you have a different opinion, it really is. But seeing "6-28" just made me want to share my passion.

Well put. I seem to have more internal hype for this than it seems permeates through this thread. I suspect this will not be sold out by the time it hits the streets and I expect some added hype once people get their first complete listens. I get more exited over 73 and 74 then I do about 77. Less predictable, more exploratory and jazzy. It doesn't bother me when the miss the mark as they seem to just recoil and spring out all over again until they scratch that sweet spot. I had to run some errands during the lunchtime show on Sirius.. today's concert was 4/5/71 at the Manhattan Center. It reminded me of the 76 conversation the other day. Some liked 76 and some didn't.. (surprise). I think was the Ice Cream Cone Kid that commented on variety. I think 1971 was to 1972 as 76 was to 77. Breaking out new material and new equipment, testing new arrangements and by the end of the year they were able to make sense of it all and the following year was built on the accumulated strength. Like 68 was to 69, etc. I am very happy they continued to experiment and reinvent themselves and I am ore than happy to spend an evening revisiting these shows. I like the follow the progression and hear the learning curve real time. There's revelations baked into those early moments.

Having criticized the potential size of this box-I feel I must add that this is a very minor consideration for me. The music is what counts, and I agree with Jim that 1973-1974 are for me very exciting years-even the mistakes are valid as they are part and parcel of the experimental approach that yielded such gems. So however they are housed-as long as they play alright-that's alright with me. I was also interested to read of release of the rest of The Allmans sets from the Fillmore 1970. Hope they come out on cd, though.

So not only are the shows and sound quality amazing, but the box itself is as well. I just looked into this artists past work - I gotta say I'm intrigued. I'm simply giddy about his release. I would have been ecstatic if they just released the 3 '73 shows, then the other 3 '74 shows next year. But instead we get them together. THANK YOU Dave & Co for all you do. I'm listening to a lot of NON 73-74 until this comes out.... I LOVE 1973! Looser and jazzier than any other year. Anyone who doesn't get this will be disappointed when it finally sells out. Again, the box alone will be highly sought after item for years to come. And the 6 shows inside are amazing - an absolute gem.

Hey bro, the Owsley Foundation only announced that the ABB set was coming, plus two other release announcements, all in July. No preorder as they haven't actually launched these releases. However, it looks like a one-disc compilation is listed on Amazon, but no set list, so impossible to tell what it is. The ABB release from 2/70 is -- I paraphrase -- all the existing material from their three sets over the three nights. So it doesn't sound like they have complete sets. But if the ABB played (3) 90-minute sets (minimum) and the OF has only half that material, they'd have two solid hours. The 1997 release was 72 minutes. So maybe they have another disc or two of material? In any case, this will be Owsley-recorded original ABB on several discs. We already have a compilation from 1997, with more to come, presumably delivered as 2/11, 2/13 and 2/14 -- i.e., properly archived and presented. We're talkin' about a fresh archival release of Duane Allman and his boys opening for the GD at the Fillmore East in February 1970. Need I say more?

good morning, everyone my morning musings: 5/18/72: first set feels tense and clumsy. Second set is glorious. Jimi Bold as Love album: for years it was "ok, but overall, meh". then listened to it yesterday while doing things around the house. _yeah_. good stuff. Dylan and the Dead: found an old random CD of D&tD 7/4/87. GREAT stuff. I typically do not like guest artists, but this is different. D&C at the Gorge this evening. wish I cared. but I don't. at least there's no chance of a rainout. :) Anthem reissue coming soon. What will DaP27 be? if you need a palate cleanser, listen to Motorhead. "rejoice, rejoice, we have no choice, but to carry on"

The discussion sez Plangent Processes & Jeffrey Norman are on the job, working from original tapes. The 1997 compilation was from 2/11 and 2/14. So 2/13 untapped so far. And unreleased material from 2/11 and 2/14. I lied: apparently July is the announcement of one of the three releases coming this year. I would guess that would be ABB, the band with the biggest fan base. But I'd be curious what else is coming because Owsley's tapes are so well recorded. http://forums.stevehoffman.tv/threads/bears-sonic-journals-allman-broth… Did I just read that Jimi's Axis: Bold as Love is "good," but Dylan & Dead are "great"? Then again, I am hendrixfreak...

I agree, but it's been up there for a long, long time lol. The band gives half a performance, gives no refund, should be the headline. These guys ain't got a lot of fans as it is, and now they just lost a bunch more. What does 11 oclock curfew have to do with it? The entire situation was handled badly, I feel for any and all who got ripped off for their second set. And yet, nothing from the band, silence, take the money and run. Why? don't they all have enough? definitely not in the true spirit of the Grateful Dead. If they are truly afraid of the elements, why give an outdoor show? Save your money, buy this box instead, a lot more fun and you get Jerry and Phil too. Support Owsley foundation, that Allmans at the Filmore in 1970? Sounds great, they were a jam band back then too.

My excitement level for this box is a solid 10/10. It really doesn't get any better for me than Fall '72-74 and this is right in the sweet spot. I've listened to all of these shows over the years on archive and will the full norman they're going to be bedrocks of the ever-growing collection. I bought two of the boxes and am not anticipating selling the extra. That's how much i'm looking forward to it. At best it'll be a great gift to someone in 30 years. At worst i'll savage it for parts. About the books, i'm much more interested in reading Barlow's book than the Fare Thee Well book. I think Jim's post about the band and their interactions summed it up perfectly, so I have nothing more to add. I've been shamed by the wife into storing all of my GD material so the box's looks and size are non-issues for me. I feel lucky to have my guitars and amps out in the basement and not in their cases. Haha. It happens to us all eventually I guess, maybe in different ways. But it's ok, cause every so often, when I pull out an old box-set its like looking at it again for the first time. I'm streaming the Gainesville '80 show right now. This would be a great choice for a Dave's for sure. Have a good weekend and good 4th all. Stay cool and play dead.

Angry Jack, you just made poster child for absurdity with your comment about whining. The king of complaint is complaining about complainers. But that's ok, we need somebody to let us know when to get over it and move on. And somebody needs to let us know which places are pissholes (where do you live by the way?) Oh wait. Here's the best part, where you offer your second pearl of wisdom, just to secure your poster board standing. You said the place has "Totally obnoxious and abusive security." Well then! Sounds like your kind of pisshole!

That might just make a total wreck of our Friday afternoons (but in a good way). Listening to 11/8/69 is sort of like falling out of a perfectly good airplane without a parachute and realizing you are going to have to somehow MacGyver your way to safety. The feeling of accomplishment at the end makes it worth the trip. I concur, one incredible show.

I am also fully stoked for this release, that nice jazzy feel to '73 really works for me, and '74 is up there as well. I am so excited in fact that I almost forget to wonder what Dave's Pick 27 will be. I have not indulged in any of the advance listening party stuff for this box, but I am currently listening to DiP14 11/30/73 and 12/2/73, one that I always found to be a gratifying listen with a good dose of that jazzy feel.

Thx for the follow up. I've now joined the mailing list, and followed them on Facebook and poof found out everything I wanted to know. I'm kinda tempted to do the Adopt A Reel program. I'm gonna name it Earl. Totally geeked for that release, as much as this one. That Steve Hoffman forum has some good info on it, but man is it hard to follow. The way it blocks things with the original post and the reply is confusing. Somewhere in that thread I saw the elusive Kate from these threads, same avatar and everything. I'm sure she was making some salient, insightful comment if I could tell which one it was. Now if they can release the whole ABB run, surely they can release the Dead's whole run from Feb 70. That would make a nice box.

So I had corresponded with the gentleman who answers email at OF several months ago to see if they had ABB tapes in the collection and, if so, did they need them sponsored?! A: Yes we have ABB reels from the Fillmore and they have been sponsored. Q: Any chance of release? A: Stay tuned. Which meant, definitely slated for release, just not sayin'. So I was gratified to learn the news of the Feb 70 FE release. And I agree, a full Feb 70 GD run at FE would be highly valued. Shucks, I'm 60 and I've got a bit of time. But what's weird about this age (never been here before) is that my feelings about the importance of things change sometimes on a daily basis.

which one is pink... I think a few weeks back I remember CBS Sunday Morning doing an expose on 1968 and had a segment about music from big pink. It was good.

No worries my friend, happy to share. I was at two of those three and have extremely fond memories of both. Hey.. I am heading your way the first week in August. Would love to hook up for a beer if you're around. Just chilling in the Rockies with bikes, kayaks, tents and walking shoes. The agenda is pretty full, but will be in Jackson Hole likely the 1st, 2nd or 3rd of August and spending a few days with a buddy in Driggs for good measure. Check your PM, I will send some addl info.

Count me among the grateful for the Pacific Northeest 73/74 release. This will be a special offering from high water marks for the band. Thank you Dave and the gang! Up until Dave’s last seaside chat I was wondering how the returned soundboards fit into this release. I figured there had to be something from 6/22/73 and now we know. I wonder what else is now available to fill some gaps? I view DiP 19 (10/19/73) as one of the very best releases to date. It’s a complete show and totally sublime. For me it’s a go to show when nothing else seems to percolate (as well as when I just want to listen to it, which is often). And to think that I really wasn’t into this release when it came out. Sometimes with me these things just take time (daverock, I know where you’re coming from). I really dig on DiP 12 as well, but part of me longs for two complete shows... Jim, I had a very similar experience earlier this week while musing on 76. I too think it’s similar to 71 in how they were breaking in new material and re-figuring the band. To be honest, in general, I prefer the sound of 71 to 76, but really, I like all eras and it depends on the mood, etc. I find that I understand and enjoy 77/78 a lot better after digging into 76. I feel similar about 72 after listening through almost the entirety of 71—thank you, Doc. On a blind listen, I have a hard time teasing out some 76 from early-77, but it’s probably my ignorance. DaP 18 is also one of my favorite releases to date. Such a well articulated and creative show. I really enjoy that whole run at the Orpheum.

I'm with you on 10-19-73, a top ten all time show for me and a top five Dark Star as well. This is yet another cassette (I think I only had the second set) that converted me into a pre-hiatus "snob." I understand about you wishing for complete shows from DiP12 and I agree. I find it even more painful that we don't have complete shows from the DiP14 run. The missing Sugar Mags is essential. It's my intensely strong opinion that the post-horn shows of 1973 are the band at it's absolute best; the highest of the high, the greatest of the greatest era...but you know what they say about opinions.

In referring to NJ, I was speaking specifcally about the Meadowland's complex. I should have made that more clear. My apologies to the remaining areas of the state.

Why do wives feel the need to cover air conditioning vents? It's 98 freakin degrees out, and my house ain't keeping up. checked the filter, no problem there. checked the temperature of the air, no problem there. checked the thermostat, no problem there. checked one upstairs bedroom, there's a waste basket on one vent and a box of shit on the other. checked another upstairs bedroom, there's a bureau covering half of it (and the vent is closed, and the bureau is covering the half that has the lever to open the vent). checked the bathroom, door was closed, it's now the only cold room in the house. checked the living room, the couch is covering the vent (if you put your bare feet on the floor in front of the couch, you get a nice breeze). checked the living room, there's a rocking chair over the vent, with a bathrobe on the back of it that is trapping the air like a tent. none of this was like this two weeks ago.

Wife's dog. JimFromMD and Hippychick, I took your advice and bought Dick's Picks volume 16. I didn't realize how different they had become by November. This sounds nothing like Fillmore East or Fillmore West 1969. The recording sounds a little bit "distant", but I can hear everyone. What is this "Uncle John's Band JAM"???? It was like the whole show was effin' awesome, and THEN the whole Dark Star / Other One medley starts. More please powers that be. Stoltzfus, thank you, I felt lost in space for a moment. There's always strength in numbers.
