    "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.

    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.

The IFC Channel (Independent Film, I believe) has back episodes of the classic USA Network late-night staple, "Night Flight" available on my Comcast and maybe yours, too. Back in the day before 10,000 channels and youtube, killer late-night music TV was a rare thing. Night Flight was so cool, the coolest, cooler than Mtv even. I miss the days of Mtv meaning something, I don't know why, maybe because everybody was watching. Like the Beatles on Ed Sullivan, you were part of a community and everybody had something to talk about later. A shared experience. While some of those spam posts are annoying, I don't believe in censorship except in the most vile and extreme cases. I've said a bunch of really stupid shit on here, and they have never censored me. Current listen: Joe Bonamassa's "Rock Candy Funk Party." Absolutely rippin'. ;-p

Brewer.. I took your advice and scrolled through his posts very fast.. backwards. I swear it read pee on your box sets at exactly 3:00 am. Reading so fast backwards is making me sleepy.. ...Butch said, "I didn't realize how different they had become by November." I thought the same thing except my words were... I didn't realize how different they had become by the weekend. yes the recording is a bit.. well... it's one hot show. Finally, great to see another classic brought up again today also.. 10/18/73. A fine and dandy show. One of my all time favorites also. Ok.. just finished a half a watermelon and had a thirst that only went away after drinking three quarts of water. Very sleep now... Must sleep.. no time to brush teeth, out...…....

I'd like to think there's a special place in purgatory for spammers and hackers here.. like a sterile, padded white room where they play nothing but Captain and Tennille 24/7. On holidays, special occasions perhaps some Milli Vanilli, Backstreet Boys and Justin Bieber just because deadheads have a heart. Thanks MaryE.

....the hottest show they ever played (even Vegas?). If you want the full experience, crank it up, go outside, and bust out the Slip N Slide....

Member for

You should see the slip n slides they make now. My ex gf (who still lives here with her 10 year old son.. long story..) has these birthday parties for her son every year. The first year was totally disorganized and a total disaster.. kids and parents showed up.. the them was soccer, it started thunder storming at exactly the same time it thunder storms on summer days. She frantically starts screaming.. Jim, find something for them to do. The next year we started down the water sports rabbit hole.. a big, I mean big $99 kiddie pool saved the day as It was Vegas hot.. the next year I bought a mega, mountain sized slip n slide and we still had the monster kiddie pool. It was like having a small water park in the back yard.. but it's a lot of work and I had buy a compressor to blow all these damned things up. Still, they have a blowout and my main concern is that no one breaks a leg or dislocates a shoulder. 10 year old's play hard and play for keeps. I wish they had slip and slides like this when I was young. Sorry for the diversion.. has absolutely nothing to do with the GD except that its almost all I listen to when he's in the car/truck with me and when I stream shows I always invite him to watch with.. he knows several songs by name. My goal is by next year he can name more songs as they play then Sixtus' son. Game on Woodstock. Edit: This slip n slide has steps and takes a solid half hour to fill up using a compressor, the inflated ramp is a good four and a half feet high and I set it up on a big slope to begin with. Slip n slides on acid on a hot day would be mega fun. Just saying.. the kiddies sure dig it, his parties have become legendary. My main concern is that no one breaks a leg or dislocates their shoulders. It's like a big, wet, kiddie mosh pit as they barrel down this hill three or four at a time with reckless abandonment. Sorry. back to your regularly scheduled, hot summer day GD rainout memories or whatever else we talk about on these threads.

Recent DP 16 talk made me bust it out. The best thing about the Grateful Dead? You actually get like 8 (11?) bands in one package. You know what I mean.

....never experienced one. Got close during a Vegas '92 show. A storm cell was moving in during set break. We were on the floor. I saw it coming. Told the group we should move up the bowl to the higher seats. Seeing as how we were all glassy eyed, it required little convincing. Another cell was coming from the south. Lighting strikes everywhere. They met maybe two miles to the west, then opened up a deluge all around us during drumz/space. Heard some heads were leaning against a chain link fence and got the after effects. I also recall seeing a triple rainbow before a Phish show in Park City in '98(?). They tuned up Somewhere Over The Rainbow prior to the first set. Hahahaaaaaaa....fuck yeah. I need a riding time machine mower. But the waiting list is in the future. Stupid time.

Probably should crack a beer too.Spent a few hours at the pool today, sunny and mid 90’s. No slip n slide though. Then rode my bike. Now hiding out in the AC and just started 7-1-78. Sound quality is superb. Can’t believe that the box hasn’t sold out.

6-22-91 was cold (like high 50’s) and cloudy with rain in the area but I don’t recall it raining on the stadium. Soldier Field 93 first night it rained during Drums/Space. It was my girlfriend’s second show and I made her sit through Space in the rain. :) 6-8-93 (said girlfriend’s first show) was indoors but there were thunderstorms. Had to pull into a rest area to ride out a severe storm on the drive after the show. At least I never got a snowout like happened in spring 93.

I've never been there, but at least one cool thing has happened there. https://themidnightcafe.org/2017/09/11/repost-bonanza-grateful-dead-mod… This was one of the first shows that got me on the bus. It might have been the guy in the front seat waving to me . . ."C'mon man, get in. You'll like it, trust me." I remember hearing it on Sirius one night, after an inappropriate amount of indulgences, and WOW. I really didn't know much about the Dead other than hearing a couple of the albums, and that lots of people out there thought they were the greatest thing ever. For the first time, I started to understand why. I listened to a lot of the Grateful Dead channel for about a year after that, and then started hanging out here and buying Dave's Picks and box sets and, well . . . you know the rest. I bring this all up because I heard this show, again yesterday, on Sirius, while me and Mrs. Deadguy were driving down to visit some friends. It's still really good. Maybe not quite Fillmore West 69 box good, but really good. Fun to hear it again, with so much more perspective and context.

Weir's quip before Terrapin at Arrow-oven-baked-deadicated-head Stadium ... man!I've been in full-pads for two-a-days, run marathons in the'80's, blah, blah - never have I been as hot as on 7/01/78, my first GOGD show. We were in the sweet spot, straight back and too high. I made a recording with a little cassette player on a 120-minute cassette. I always thought the show was meh, until I heard the box version and then was pleased that I'd at least been there. I wonder what the weather was like 7/08? lol

@Cross Eyed - one the best 4th of July fireworks shows I ever saw was Canada Day in Victoria on July 1 a few years ago. Walked from a late dinner at a bar a few blocks down to the waterfront near dark as it was starting. Non-stop fury, with a bunch of lovely Canadians walking around in their red shirts having a great time. Those works measured up to anything I've seen in the US over the years. Props to Canada, that country knows how to run their joint, both on Canada Day and otherwise. @Jim slip and slides - we always set one of these up in my childhood backyard in the summer where we had a moderate hill to work it on. Ours was just a thin sheet of yellow plastic, just unroll it and hose it down, and you took your chances that there weren't any sharp rocks under it as you whaled down the hill. Easy cheap thrills when you're a kid. @Roguedeadguy - I guess the biggest thing to come out of Modesto was George Lucas who based his debut American Graffiti on memories of his younger days there IIRC. He made the wise move to get out of there and onto Lucas Valley Road in the countryside west of San Rafael where he set up the Skywalker Ranch. There's a great trail up into the Marin hills above that where you can look down onto the ranch, and then climb higher for a 360 degree view of one of the most serene spots in the country. He chose well. Listening to E72 vol 2 right now. Not usually a huge fan of Greatest Story, but that version from Olympia Theater is hot. I never minded the compilations the way some do, so this release works for me, mixed in with my selection of various full E72 shows.

In anticipation of the Northwest Pacific box, I think I burned out 73 and 74 shows, probably listen to everyone I own about 5 times each at this point since the announcement. So now I'm working on 1972. I just bought some Europe 72 on eBay, decent prices. There are some shows that seem to consistently run more than others, but generally they're not too bad, not as high as old Dave's Picks. And the original Road Trips have come down since Real Gone started re-releasing them. But anyways these Europe 72 are so consistenty good. I find in choosing the only thing that is really important in choosing is the setlist. I almost done understand how they did it. How they managed to sound like the whole tour was recorded in the studio. Not just a good sound I get all that the 16 track tapes and everything but they still had to sing and play well. I've been involved in the choral aspect of music for many years and they sound just magnificent. Ironically the songs that are overdubbed for the original record are the ones that sound the least authentic. Glad I could entertain a couple people with the air conditioning story. Slow dog noodle you probably weren't impressed because I forgot to mention that listening to the Dead is the only thing that kept me from divorcing the encroacher ;-) The Dead heals.

Funny air conditioning story - I can relate. You caught my attention with your comments on Dick's Picks 16. This was one of the first that I picked up early in my Grateful Dead explorations. There was a while when Uncle John's Band Jam was in every Grateful Dead mix I made. I'm listening to the Dark Storm medley right now, thanks for the reminder. Flow or a couple links about bear. You can get some insight into his recording process and participation here. I'm driving so I couldn't search too much but I know one of the album liner notes possibly, or maybe it's just another article gets into a lot more depth about how he recorded stuff and what his goals were for the sound. But these links are good start if you're interested in that sort of thing. http://deadessays.blogspot.com/2010/07/bear-at-board.html?m=1 http://www.thebear.org/albums.html marye, thanks for taking care of mattbrown - nice to know there's someone keeping the street safe here :D

Surely they must think we are insane. I heard somebody clamoring for a Dancing in the Streets tonight.. It's a disco dancing at the Shoreline! I bet they get a help/slip/franklins too.. either tonight or tomorrow. Music.. sweet music...

Heard the original Vandellas version of Dancin' today in a restaurant. Synchronicity much? Mayer is Dead to Me!

I'd give it to you. Slow paced or whatever.. freaking fantastic.. way to go Oteil and John. What a great song. Never understood why Jerry dropped that one. Just three performances all in the fall/winter '78.
