    "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.

I'm looking at the photos of the box and thinking it's big enough to house proper digipacks (like the old Rhino reissues of the studio albums), which I hope is the case rather than flimsy cardboard sleeves or worse. Surely the book won't take up that much room. Somehow never heard Seattle '74 but could a 47 minute PITB possibly be as good as it sounds? Needless to say I am getting excited about this. September seems a long way off! Hey Dave - how about an 'unboxing' video??

I may have said this before, but I see this as more of a JGB song, not Dead. The Dead don't do sappy, over-literal "I love you sooo much" songs (OK Looks Like Rain... but that's Bobby). Jerry Garcia Band DID do sappy love songs. But there's no real jam in it so it didn't make the JGBand cut either....

I always liked "If I Had The World" well enough-and still do. Maybe it would pall a bit if they had played it as often as Sugar Magnolia, but as it stands-good. This made me think of other songs the band made good studio recordings of, and then never played much live. Ripple, Unbroken Chain and Crazy Fingers are all great in their studio incarnations-but none of them - to me-really translated all that well to live performance. Crazy Fingers was good on 13th August 1975-but it obviously didn't survive long. I'm not even going to mention the 1990s versions.. Another great studio recording, was "New Speedway Boogie". I wonder why that one never became established as a jamming vehicle like "Truckin'" did? "Box of Rain ", too-an incredible song.

probably too dark a song for a long running jam vehicle? being the horrific story of Altamont free concert gone bad... The Dead left without playing a note after Marty Balin was knocked unconscious, they were scheduled to play second to last, just before Mick and the boys. Four people died that day amidst chaos, one murdered right in front of The Stones on stage. See Gimme Shelter but be ready for some ugly stuff.

How about never-played/yet-to-be-played songs such as "France"? Could Dead & Co. play thissteel-drum-meets-Lowell-George-meets-Bobby-and-Donna as a one-off by bringing Donna to the Dead & Co. stage?

Love Donna to pieces, but I don't think her voice is what it used to be. I heard her play with D&C in Boston 2 years ago (and sit in with Ratdog about 9 years ago in New Haven) and while she did OK, she sure didn't sound as god as she used to - I think she doesn't have the range she used to have, which is common among women. Mad respect though. Funny thing is at the concession stand at Fenway, on the field where you could still see the band, I overheard a guy telling his gf/wife it was Mountain Girl. Me: "Actually that's Donna". Girl: "See? I TOLD you!". Guy: "No, IT IS Mountain Girl"... long pause as he glares at me that I had just contradicted him in front of his partner. Guy behind me: "Dude it's Donna Jean Godchaux, she used to be in the Dead in the 70's - who did you say you thought it was???" Guy: "Nevermind", still glaring at me.

While a different tempo than Blues For Allah, I think Crazy Fingers worked pretty well for the band. A good 90's Bruce/Vinnie version can be found on Dick's #17! I'm also fond of the 6/20/92 RFK version.....and, I just love that damn show! :)

Moving through GD eras, Keith's grand piano really fits the rock-n-roll and Americana songs, but his electric keyboard during certain songs of 73-74 along with Jerry's wah-wah is a sure fire ticket to outer space. Sounds like a Fender Rhodes?? This is the juice for me! Just wandered through Winterland 1973 - great stuff! Also, IMHO, 73-74 is Bobby at his peak. Not that he lost any chops, but in 73-74 he really stands out in the mix and surely is one of the best all-time rhythm guitarists. The Dead have been and continue to be such a positive force in my life - and it is needed now - Will be teeing up some DaP 26 Albuquerque for the ride home - and a shout out to Phil as a great backing vocalist in his time, those early harmonies were sweet. Thanks Dave, Jeffrey and all the Rhino crew for keeping this going!

...always loved the bands playing during the 73-74’ era. I really got excited when I heard about the official announcement from the band and company. You can really get lost in amazement @ ah, from each band members performance as a whole... I’m sad to say I had to sell my copy due to an alarming rate of doctor bills. Just returned home from the hospital after a long 33 day recovery and be allowed to return home to my family, friends and my fellow deadhead relationships :). I gonna try my hardest to buy another boxset for myself before they all sell out, wish me luck, Im gratefully in need of some prayers...Peace be with you all my brothers and sisters and have yourself a grand 4th of July celebration ! Smile smile smile :)

The promotion said Donna will be there. Thank fucking god there's no "Playing" in that set. Jesus Christ, to this day I roll the volume back while she shrieks horridly during those two refrains. All over E72, like swatting away a fly "TURN IT FUCKING DOWNNNNN..." But, I love her. Our hippie priestess. C'mon, Donna Jean meant the dorks had a girl - a Girl! - onstage. She looked nice, at least, Bob, Billy, and so on and so-forth felt so. She was alright. She sang on Elvis records, for Chrissakes. And on Jerry's solo lp's, where she could "hear herself," she was spot-on, a session princess. I am going to be there representing in full Jedi force Sunday, you asses, that's right, parading all across Red Rocks. I may just well be bearing one of my Dead & Co. T-shirts, to spite Phil, and Gyll, after digesting the Joel Selvin book. To hell with it. Pools, waterparks, booze, tits, family, my guitars, yadda... A long fourth-of-July weekend here. As God is living, herself, through every keystroke and breath and shit we all are taking, well, her, let's take Cheers! and make love manifest in all that we are and do. Each and every time, \jm/ LedDed

Yes, funny-you get guys like that in England, too. I have always enjoyed a chat/discussion-and in the past have thought I was being helpful challenging something someone has said-or I have just enjoyed the possibility of opening up a potentially interesting debate. I guess some people take a discussion as an opportunity to assert their superiority-and if someone challenges what they have said they feel personally attacked.

Good to hear people have enjoyed 1990s versions of Crazy Fingers-its a great song, and as such maybe any airing should be welcome. With New Speedway Boogie, I was forgetting the lyrics when I said that I thought it would have made a good jamming song. "Gimme Shelter" is a horrifying film-and if the song was firmly attached to that event, I can well understand why it wasn't played too often. But musically, the chord sequence, and the rhythm suggest that it was made for jamming.

just out today, the current administration had help from the Russians in winning the 2016 election, concludes the Senate. How do you feel now? This administration has and will continue to erode all and any past accomplishments in the name of progress and freedom to suit it's own greedy maladjusted agenda. If you believe in Freedom, if you believe in Justice, better wake up and vote in November. The times they are a-changing and it looks like we are going back to the 50's. Affirmative action to be stopped in colleges, tariffs against our allies, gestapo type tactics against any and all immigrants, tax cuts for the rich that will never expire, supreme court being loaded with conservatives that will make all of this craziness the law of the land. WAKE UP and remember what our ancestors fought and died for, Freedom from want, Freedom from fear, the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, freedom from a government that did not listen to it's own citizens. They fed us the line that democracy was and is the best thing going and we fought and died for it, and now, it is being slowly and deliberately destroyed by greedy, crazy aristocrats who want it all and will take us all down to get it. I love my country, I fought for my country, I was willing to die for it, and now, I don't recognize my home, the idiots are winning and we must fight with all the love that we have to stop what will become the easiest take over of a country by a foreign regime ever. Not one shot being fired, all in the name of greed. Happy 4th of July everyone, I will fly my flag today, upside down, to symbolize a nation in distress and in need of help. I only hope it's not too late. Go ahead, fly your freak flags high, it's just a mater of time before you won't be able to with out fear of retribution from your own government.

Wave that flag. Wave it wide and high. Democracy has come and gone, my oh my. I picked up a cheap used copy of the Truckin Up to Buffalo DVD recently and watched it last night. 1) Good stuff, although I think Downhill From Here is a little better overall with better video quality -- "Better" being relative since they're both old standard def feeds anyway. I notice there's at least two other video releases from that tour, 7-7 and 7-8, and that seems to be where they mine all the Meet up At the Movies also. 2) Holy hell, that was a ripping All Along the Watchtower. Maybe the best non Jimi version I can remember. Highlight of the show, IMHO. 3) During Drums, Mickey is squeezing something that looks like a giant air filter, and banging on it with something like a crowbar. What is that ?

SWEETHEART OF THE RODEO 50TH ANNIVERSARY featuring Roger McGuinn, Chris Hillman and Marty Stuart and his Fabulous Superlatives Hi everyone - very excited here. I've pasted in above the announcement from my in-box today regarding 50th anniversary of Sweetheart of the Rodeo. I love the Byrds. Seems like they should have shared some bills with the dead, but I'm not aware of any. Particularly at the end of the Byrds' career when they were an excessively hairy jam-band. Grateful Dead, Byrds, Small Faces, Traffic - these are probably the 4 classic rock bands I've listened to and enjoyed more than any others. I've never seen McGuinn live...seeing him at the Ryman is something to look forward to. Monday October 8 is the day. If anyone wants to come to Nashville for the show let me know and we'll make preparations. Happy 4th to all - hoping for quick recovery and good health for all. Rock on!

Really looking forward to the announcement... maybe in a couple of weeks?I’m guessing that it’ll be primal Dead. Spring ‘69? Would love June ‘76 though... maybe fall ‘80 (Gainesville?) Maybe the first ‘79 show in the series? Can’t wait.

Jack Hardy. Anyone have a good collection of his stuff? Here's one of his cuts https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qbMEYfYpa7s He seems to have 2 "collected" works available. Anyone have a copy of these two? I like the guy. OH, also,,,, anyone out there have any Joe Hill, I'm not even sure if he was ever recorded. It seems his songs were covered by a large number of "union" singers.

"Patriotism is the last refuge of the scoundrel."-Samuel Johnson 1775. I agree with Vguy72-there are two sides to every coin. I would add, though, that sometimes its best not to agree with either of them.

....social media is the cancer of the world. When I first got the internet in 1997, I played a ton of Scrabble. Now, it's full of hate and retoric. Personal opinions are viewed upon as "wrong" by people with other viewpoints. Big men behind a big keyboard. Open the barrier and let's see how big their mouths are. I will watch this Four Horsemen doc because I've never seen it. Noticed it was published in 2013. Wierd....

....and a new dog. It's officially Scary Big Boom day. Should be interesting. But seriously. Happy Birthday America. Keep it up, unless it's upside down. Funny. I ran some errands today and saw a lot of US flags. All right side up. Idiots.
