    "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.

A great band-I will definitely be having a look at the reissue of Sweetheart as a possible purchase. My favourite albums by them were actually the three before it-5th Dimension, Younger Than Yesterday and Notorious Byrd Brothers. But Sweetheart is great, too. This new Buffalo Springfield box set could be worth a punt, too. Nothing that hasn't been available for years...but supposedly now in better sound.

I was curious how many dead.net would allow me to place in my cart... the answer? Precisely 9,894 copies. I'm wondering how accurate a measure this is. Could it be only 5,106 copies have sold so far?

I am currently working on the HJK February shows with summer '95 on the appropriate days of what I have. josie the cat saw a rabbit in the backyard and just couldn't understand what was going on at all. 4th of july used to be awesome for me, when I first moved here I could step into back yard on 4th of july and have an excellent view of the fire dept doing fireworks. now they moved and if I want to see em I can in my front yard but horribly blocked by trees. it sucks I wish it could go back the way it was. going to the park blows too many people and its used as a means to try sneak beer in and drink in public.

I'm just going down the road feeling bad. Listening to the top shelf American band in the Land. Mama tried to set me right. I'm guilty of losing focus. Apologies Mom.You want sparkles? Cue up 6.22.86. On my third tour. Really good show. Short sentences. I blame the IPA's. See how easy it is?

Version of history is one one of the most ignorant I have ever read. The revolutionary generation didn't fight for freedom from fear and want let alone the right to life. They fought to establish they had the rights of Englishmen and as the declaration of independence stated they had given up on getting them from the king who they wrongly thought was their protector. BTW glad to see you support the right to life lol.If you knew anything at all about that period in our history you'd know far from wanting the government to provide with freedom from want which by necessity would require a leviathan monstrosity like we have now they want as little as possible . One more thing I'm not much of a fan of ICE but in my work have to deal with them far more than you do, if you've ever actually met one. To call them the Gestapo shows the American Revolution isn't the only period of history that you are completely ignorant of.

Watching the fireworks and listening to the usual patriotic tunes they play for the soundtrack a thought occured to me. U.S. Blues would make a great fireworks song.

Gonna have to push back on that one, globe-trotting American band with a worldwide audience and groups of simpaticos, okay. But, the Grateful Dead are ABSOLUTELY an American band. I'm a huge fan of camembert but that doesn't make it a global cheese, it's friggin' French... ;)

Now that our American Independence Day has passed, shall we get back to the music that drew us all here, that we share in such delight? Politics not worthy of debate here, imho, and we are very diverse, does dead.net have a political discussion page for those who would? Nahhhh. OK Cheese, I will debate, Vermont being a dairy state and damn proud of it. We will put our cheese up against anything else in the world... ok it might get sticky, yes. For example. in a small farm not far from me: http://www.vtcheese.com/members/blythedale-farm-2/ If you ever have the chance to put their camembert against ANY French camembert, go ahead try it. We have freaking incredible cheese here. Not going to even mention my favorite Vermont cheeses, don't make enough of them. World Class Cheese, like our World Class Grateful Dead. OK maybe I will mention one, because it is almost out of this world... called Bayley Hazen Blue, served to the French president when he visited the White House in 2014. So good, we shot it into orbit, well... yes folks this is how we have fun in the Green Mountains https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yBoVgugOGcI Daverock, I do agree, the music groove of NSB is jamworthy.

Dave's Picks Volume 27 could be revealed as early as today, July 5, 2018 (unlikely) or tomorrow, Friday July 6th, or most likely sometime next week with Friday July 13th being a *good* target date. Oh the irony of a reveal on Friday the 13th, I see a twisted humor in it. DaP 27 will sell out probably within 2 hours of the posting of the new page on the day of the reveal. The selected show? I have no idea what DaP 27 will contain, but it probably won't be from 1967, '68, '71, '73, '74 or 1977. "DaP 27 will be a show from the time period from 1/1/70 to 12/31/79." wissinomingdeadhead "had a dream that DaP 27 was 11/25/79" he could be right about that, but I won't count or bet on that one, but who knows...

Dave's Pick's really never sell out...there are LOTS of them for sale on eBay. It saddens me, as an old deadhead, that people would buy these to "flip" while others cannot even buy one. I know...capitalism! This would be easy to fix by limiting people to one. That would mean that they would sell out in two days instead of two hours. I hope when the new Dave's picks comes out all of you who want a personal copy get one. Be well! Mr. Pete------------> aging hippie

"If you ever have the chance to put their Camembert against ANY French camembert, go ahead try it" That's some statement there! I've tried several American Camembert before, and none of them really came close. I'll try the one in your link if I can find it in California. However, if I'm not mistaken, the production of cheeses made from raw milk has been prohibited in the US since 1949; you cannot make a "Real" camembert without raw milk, ideally raw milk from Normandie.

@direwulf. As a Frenchman and as a deadhead since 1972, I consider the Grateful Dead to be an American band above all else. In France, the group has never had more than a success of esteem, and it is very little known. I think it is better known and appreciated in Britain and Germany. I'm French, but I recognize that I much prefer the Dead's music than the pie chart. This is of course only a question of personal taste. :-)

Member.... 1986; 6/30/86 Riverbend and 7/4/86 Buffalo were great, don’t remember so much of Alpine (1st time there, I do remeber it was a blast camping in the far lot etc, and that whole trip was insane!) ...recall thinking Akron was lame? It seemed like altemont with burning tires and wierd shit, but a, that might of been something I ate?? and/or the comparative let down after Riverbend? Remember Dylan came out to jam but it wasn’t happening.....have never heard this show because of my memories, perhaps I should at least give it a spin sometime.... not familiar with 6/22, will have to check it out.... 1978; I’ve tried again to get jazzed by this box, (have listened to 1st, 3rd and 5th so far), but meh, imho it’s white bread...perfectly fine shows etc, I like them (3rd is fav so far...) their just not wierd/psychedelic enough to move me. Of course that’s how I feel in general about the Mickey Godchaux Band.....I’m sure I won’t feel this way about the new Box!! 7-4-87; nother one I recall feeling was lame and the overall vibe was pure shit show??? Got so turned off by summer shit winds tour,(Alpine, Wonderland, Chrotchfester, Boston) combined with choices of venues in the fall, I sat out fall tour.....luckily Hampton 3/26-28/88 rekindled the hope. Did like Chrotchfester show..... 7/4/89; still really dig this one, perhaps tour favorite, or 7/17/89.....both were great shows, 7/4 being home base in those days was great fun. Alpine was great show, bit less fun (personal experience/logistics etc, not the show it self) So Dave WTF......tap, tap, tap hear our collective feet tapping, waiting......for number 27....... Received 23 I think it was 1/22/78 on August 1st last year. If they follow the usual timelines, they ought to be dropping this one sooner than later. Hurry up ya bastids, sone of us have nothing else to look forward too, lol, and we NEED A FIX!!! That is all. Remeber, “Dancing is a contact sport, have fun but be safe” And keep hydrated, and ware your sunblock it’s nasty out there.... Party on Garth!

Half way through JPB’s, good so far, about what you’d expect, nothing crazy.... Selvins......not enough time for full comment, but generally ok book, could of been good if he’d get out of the way of his own coffee breath as Jon Evison would say....obviously he has an axe to grind with the Lesh’s...There was so much material to work with that a great book could of just reported things without the constant little digs and his personal opinions etc. There where also just enough factual mistakes to question his authority on the subject. For someone who says he’s not a head, but has had all this access and experience on their beat, it occasionally felt like he was just another wanker trying to cash in. I did like how he eventually tied it together in a positive spin about FTW, and how WE the fans made it happen etc, even if I disagree about the choice of Trey and his critique of the music. He did capture the essence of the excitement about the shows, and the travel plans etc. I remember feeling like all that was what made it fun.....reliving the whole excitement and process/preparations etc e.g., where are we going to watch, what are we going to do etc.... As far as surprises, I probably knew about half of it, or most of the general nonsense that was going on. I guess I was enlightened about others participation/roles in the whole mess, and why certain thinks we’re said and done. But of course those opinions are partly based on his obviously biased view, since no one inside has, or probably never will correct the record.....would like to go back and read some of the other books over again now......also, need to read his Altemount to see if this is always his style, or is he really have it out for the Lesh’s? Remeber folks, these guys are just people, not gods. So just like the rest of us, sometimes their going to do dumb/shitty stuff, especially when your scared and your future is completely up in the air etc. I’m not condoning some of the behavior, just saying that when you look at the big picture objectively, you can perhaps understand things a little.... Most importantly, we can’t let any of this diminish what it’s really all about, the MUSIC!! “Sweet, sweet, music....”

Old tv show called Route 66 had a episode called "Three Sides". Excerpt follows. Tod Stiles: I remember something Dad used to say. Buz Murdock: What's that? Tod Stiles: Whenever you reach an impasse look at the third side of the coin. Buz Murdock: The third side? Tod Stiles: Yea. Buz Murdock: I thought there was only two sides to a coin. Tod Stiles: The third side is the edge, the place the two sides come together. The meeting place of heads and tails. Dad used to say that was the best side, because it welds opposites together. And it's a circle, a continuous circle, closed and perfect, as endless as understanding itself.

Wow I actually totally forgot that we have another Dave's coming in the next several weeks. We are beyond spoiled. Hmm, I'm always bad at guessing these things. Doesn't seem like TPTB care about what year or lineup is "due" (nor should they be), but if you ask me, I think we're going to get a show from 68 or 69. This has already been a pretty incredible year for releases so why not keep it going. Hope everyone had a great 4th (or in Dave Rock's case, a nice Wednesday). I'm still full from eating too many burgers and still have a ringing in my ear from the fireworks. Truly a sign of a good holiday.

Ahh, great board shop back in the day..... I always liked the old saying “there are three sides to every story, side one, side two, and the truth which lies somewhere in the middle ; ) Probably apropos of the book also? As for the Fourth, wierd day, fires all around us, hot and windy, so all Fireworks canceled. It looked surreal, all dark like the flat light in December....HOA just stained the deck and this morning there is ash all stuck to it.... also, back to work today so had to dial the “fun” back.... Hope all y’all had a great day!

Once again I have to say it. Why don’t they take pre-orders before they run production, then guestsmste what they’ll need for the rest of general market and individual sales etcThis way everybodygets a copy and they don’t get stuck with too much overstock, although some would be good for Johnny come latelys etc... Also, not having limited/numbered etc might remove some of the greed/resale factor...so people wouldn’t be buying multiple copies for resale...

I feel like an 80’s release is coming and the year I would like to see is 1982. If I could pick the show it would be 8-10-82 from Iowa City with an unreal Eyes among other gems. Best guess for an 82 release would be 10-10-82 Frost. I love all of the speculation around the time of a new release. We are spoiled silly and I am happy for whatever may be coming our way.

point taken on this, however virtually no commercially imported French Camembert is raw milk sourced due to excessive regulations. Small scale artisans minimally process and may use raw milk, see below... What does this have to do with the GOGD? Vermont Senator Pat Leahy is a dead head.But do the cows listen to the dead in the milking parlor? https://culturecheesemag.com/cheese-bites/cheesemakers-congress-call-ou… aw shucks, it might almost look like politics but keep reading, Blythedale is a raw milk cheese producer https://www.realmilk.com/real-milk-finder/vermont/

Good post-I have never heard of the tv show "Route 66". But your quote provides a great example of how there often (always?) more ways of looking at any given situation than is immediately apparent. I am suddenly reminded of an old Todd Rundgren song -I can't remember what its called, but I'm pretty sure its on "A Wizard, A True Star", The chorus goes-"You want the obvious-you'll get the obvious" or some such.

Camembert is not what it used to be, since now in France, they allow pasteurized milk camembert to be labelled as "Appelation Controlee"Dead content? Sure: John Mayer is like a pasteurized Jerry. Still really good, but not the real thing.

All this talk about the next Dave's pick, all I have to say is "What about Gainesville?" 11-29-80 would make a great pick and would make many happy heads!

I'm hoping this won't be the next DaP...these two shows deserve the small box treatment, just like RFK last year.
