    "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 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.

14:21 of pure classic Dead. Playing it now for the first time. I can't wait for this box to drop. I saw on one of these boards recently that somebody was disappointed in the sound quality of the Dave's Picks. I am not, I love how well they've cleaned up and polished such an alive, ambient sound. To my ears it's beautiful and not a day passes that I'm not stoked to listen to the Dead in the car or in my home office.

I got the email with the Birdsong mp3, but I'm holding out and waiting for the box set to arrive before I listen to any of it. Since I am pretty compulsive I expect I will listen in chronological order once it arrives. Glad to hear it sounds good, my anticipation level is increasing exponentially as the release date draws closer.

well, as I've mentioned before, September '67 Elysian Park freebie in LA just before senior year in high school started then, well, a whole buncha shows at the Shrine Expo Hall 1968...it's one big jumble...I usually get better clued in looking at posters with the supporting acts.... pretty sure we were at the Shrine for the "Two From The Vault" shows... well just finishing off "The Doing Of The Thing" ...it's a bio of Buzz Holmstrom, the first known person to solo raft the Green and Colorado Rivers through Flaming Gorge, Cataract Canyon, Marble Canyon and of course the Grand Canyon in the mid 1930's in a home made boat... before that would be "A Fistful of Fig Newtons" by Jean Shepard before that would be "Dodge City" a book about Wyatt Earp & Bat Masterson by Tom Clavin... I also listen to a lot of Audio books in my car... the last two were "The Dresden Files - # 9" and "Catch 22" what makes for a great audio book listen of course is the narrator... also a quick aside while I may...awhile back I responded to one of those "what are you listening to know?" queries ... I answered that for some reason I wasn't listening to a lot of music but that I was listening to audio books in my car...a few days later i received a private message from someone here who offered to give me his library of audio books if I would just send an external HD to him for filling...I did and received back very quickly almost 800 GB's of audio books, radio shows, etc...this kind of action to me is what this board (and Deadheads as a rule) is about...generous, kind and helpful...for all the stuff that's been posted lately that is giving everyone else headaches, well, that's the cost of freedom, dealing with small dipshits...ok back to our regularly scheduled programming...

The Dead were great, but Captain Beefheart was unbelievable - possibly the most mind-blowing performance I have ever witnessed by anyone. Dr. John was also great. The Kinks were drunk and awful. The New Riders would have seemed better if the weather hadn't been so cold. Read the Europe '72 Bickershaw liner notes.

Simonrob is correct, Beefheart was amazing at the swamplike Bickershaw, I dont remember Dr Johns set(?) But did see him at the Sundown, Edmonton, not sure it was the same tour.First and last: I was at Hollywood, Newcastle under Lyme, where the TV crew were dosed by the Deads crew, the tape of their performance became the soundtrack to Alcock and Dicks Rik Griffin exhibition at the Roundhouse. Alcock and Dick being, the afforementioned TV crew I believe. Hollywood is more known in the UK as being the breakthrough for Mungo Jerry, I kid thee not. God we were sick of their In the summer time within weeks.... Last was the Alley Pally run, which I thought was under par at the time, remember we really dug Seastones and hoped that it heralded a return to the freewheeling psychedelic monster of yesteryear after the very lacklustre (IMHO) Mars Hotel with the, again in IMHO, worst Dead songs to date Juicy Lucy and US Blues. In between saw me as many of the Europe 72 shows as possible, Wembly, Bickershaw and Lyceum, where the tickets were two pounds. Two pounds! twice the price of the Wembly shows a few weeks before.

I still have a set of four Rick Griffin posters from Alcock & Dicks. Then and now I am still uncertain as to whether Alcock & Dicks was a serious name or were they just taking the piss? I have seen Dr. John several times over the years and he has never failed to disappoint. I cannot remember very much detail about the Ally Pally '74 show due to the consequences of a surfeit of spacecake.

They were responsible for bringing in the Mouse tees to the UK before the Rik Griffin show. I went as a guest of John Platt so I met Rik Griffin at the opening, he was very into religion (man) at the time...however, I received a phone call as they were dismounting the exhibition and was offered the chance to buy the exhibits at a fiver apiece, all signed and stamped, I rushed from work-I was in High Holburn-and was able to score 4 or 5, one, the Powwow, Gathering of the tribes still hangs on my kitchen wall, the others are long gone.I saw Dr John at the Sundown with the same girlfriend who came with me to Wembley, so it might have been the same tour? I dont know, I do know that he had Alan Tousaint, the Meters and the Dirty Dozen brass band with him, and they paraded down Edmonton High Street, just like Bourbon St in New Orleans! Said girlfriend who died of cancer a few years after, collected loads of Gris Gris that the good doctor threw to the (sparse)audience.

At Bickershaw, Dr. John liberally dispensed handfuls of gris gris from the stage. A bit pointless at a festival in the wind and rain but who knows, maybe it had some beneficial effect. I also recall that he was wearing some form of headgear that appeared to consist of a large number of snakes. Unfortunately I was not close enough to see exactly what it was. The "Most bizarre headgear" prize, had it existed, would not have gone to the Doctor but to Ed Marimba, Beefheart's drummer who wore "a pair of ladies panties on his head, his hair swept up through the crotch holes on either side in a pair of lewd pigtails."

That 4/19/82 show from Baltimore is sweet. What a great 1st show!I got a really nice copy of it from JiminMD awhile back ;) Saw Gov't Mule down in "Detroit" last night. (40 miles north of Detroit = close enough). They did a set of almost all Floyd. Most of Wish You Here, Dark Side, also Comfortably Numb, The Nile Song (that's an obscure one). Warren Haynes is just amazing. He was a spot on David Gilmour last night. I've also seen him be a spot on Jerry back in 09 with The Dead. I've seen him be a spot on Tommy Iomi. And of course he was largely responsible for reviving The Allman Brothers in the 90s. Anyone catch D&C last night? I'm going to make it a point to see or listen tonight.

I've this nagging feeling I ought to smell worse or look the disheveled-boho-festy-aesthete at Lockn, but my inclination for 'roughing it', outside of trail running, is a nothing short of a 3-star hotel room on wheels. Fine late-night set by Lettuce with a tributary theme flavoured to local cuisinary preferences (lovely renditions of Cats & TLEO w/ Mayer to close). Incidentally, Lettuce is one of those rare discoveries made via Sirius, of which I rec'd a complimentary scrip with my new car (first one!). Otherwise, I've christened the satellite service with a new corporate slogan: "All the music you don't want to hear, but can't get away from" OR "The last 5-seconds of a song you're dying to hear ... proceed to slogan 1". I've also discovered that I have no faculty for appreciating the Dead one-song-from-one-era-at-a-time; and I don't seem to be driving when they play shows. Now, back to the Cultured Frontier (and KW's Grateful Gospel circa noon)!.

If I don't read at least every other day, I find I can get quite behind the current topic(s).So......consider this a rambling: I took the time now (before the box set arrival), to get one last listen to GSTL box, in order & complete. It may be a while before I get my next opportunity. Favorite song (tie)-Terrapin Station, Comes A Time Favorite set-Set 2, Cornell Favorite show (I'm now wearing protective gear)......New Haven Of course, as JiminMd always says, this will change next time I listen. Also, should we ASSUME, that MDJim is JiminMd?? Not 100% sure Lastly--I consider myself extremely fortunate to have seen XTC 3 times, 2in DC, 1 in MD. What a fantastic live band. As was pointed out, they stopped touring in 1982 due to Andy Partridge's crippling anxiety (stage fright). This band is HUGELY underrated, and while not a flawless catalog by any means, I consider Drums and Wires, Black Sea and everything post The Big Express to be of substantial quality. Just a thought in case you didn't have enough music choices! Music is the BEST--FZ

I recently returned from a couple weeks travelling around fire country. I read a few days ago that the smoke is so thick in Seattle, spending a day outside can cause essentially the same damage as smoking a couple packs a day. It was so thick when I was in Wyoming and Idaho you couldn't even see the three Tetons most days (If you haven't seen the Grand Tetons try and fit that in if you can). So after a week I got this cough.. then we moved South to CO and spent almost a week at or above 9,000 feet where the air was thinner and the smoke seemed just as bad. By the end I had to come down as my cough had progressed to bronchitis, I could hardly breathe. Perhaps it was the altitude combined with my cough but the air quality sucked in Colorado too. I am on my third round of anti-biotics and it's still there (sort of). Man.. the entire West coast seems like it's on fire, what a drag. As for JimInMD.. Well.. lets just say there are not many degrees of separation.

How ironic. I was at the last four of your first five shows. The Rochester pair were always hidden gems. Cool little venue. Laid back atmosphere. Bhagwaan Rajneesh and Bill Walton jokes to start the shows. Unfurling of the banners to the delight of the crowd. Bobby Rockstar/Sinatra. First night drums were so unique as the crowd clapped in unison with the drummers. But, the unquestionable highlight was the She Belongs to Me. I knew it was cool at the time, but as I have aged, I am so thankful to have seen that live. That song alone puts the show in my top five attended.

Watched the D&C show stream last night. Gosh, it was groovy. Really nice Scarlet>Fire sandwich and a lovely Cassidy. That Other One was juicy and the obligatory OMSN second encore. Really enjoyed them playing with their tempo, on purpose. They can play faster, but sometimes choose not to. Deal with it. Finished the Joel Selvin book. Besides picking on Phil (who does come off a bit prickly in some of these stories, as is his right); I really enjoyed hearing about all the musical collaboration that continued on past the Days Between. I've got the Scully book here next to me, on deck. "Thru this world of trouble, we got to love one another."

I probably (certainly) went other nights but don't specifically recall. Last 5 3 during 1978-79 Providence, Hartford 7/12/89 RFK Stadium 10/31/90 London I missed the 80s and the 90s other than the two shows. Or maybe I skipped those years intentionally. I wonder ...

Your list cracks me up. Evokes no jealously, no envy, no contempt. Comical is a better word. Humorous.. silly fun what great shows you got to see and brings a big grin to my face. Ziffle, SimonRob, Strider88, Oroboros, Nicecat, mhammond, HendrixFreak, ForensicDocEleven, hbob, etc. Your lists sometimes contain great shows we can't even get decent tapes of but are legendary nonetheless. Many thanks to all for sharing.

First 5 for me- 07-31-71-Yale Bowl-as we walked into the Bowl-I see Jerry sitting on top of a cluster of speakers-joint in hand-checking out the crowd as we file in-only show I saw with Pig-great show-some of which is on Road Trips-I think Vol 1-#3?? 12-02-71-Boston Music Hall-w/NRPS-typical great 71 show- 07-16-72-Dillon Stadium-show where Dicky Betts and Berry Oakley jammed in the 3rd set- 09-24-72-Waterbury Ct-Palace Theater-intimate venue-at set break I look around at the crowd and lo and behold my brother is a couple of rows away-serendipity-we had no idea either one of us would be at the show-went to different schools-they played 2 nights-I went to the Sunday show-think that's the show in TTAS-great show- 04-02-73-Boston Garden-believe the first show the Dead played in the old "gahden"- dropped as we entered-front row seats-they had this cheesy locomotive w/car on stage-couldn't quite figure out why until they ripped into "Casey Jones"-one of the crew pulled a switch and smoke came out of the engines smokestack-really cheesy but when you're tripping your balls off we couldn't stop laughing-Jerry had a look on his face like I don't believe we have this thing on stage with us-also NRPS-great show- Funny thing about this show is it was released as Daves 21-which is one of my faves-check out "Greatest Story"-perfect Dead-didn't realize it was the show I saw at the Garden until recently- Jerry A

Only played 11 times. 9 of which were in 1985. Very lucky to have seen this!On another Rochester note, also lucky to have seen 1 of only 7 Believe it or not(s) at Silver Stadium in June of '88, such a beautiful song. This was just before the Oxford Plains shows in Maine - but that's another story...

I was at all three of those shows as well. I'm beginning to suspect that your name is Giles. Green Onions to open the second set was the highlight of Rochester 88. Oxford was the largest, most enjoyable party I ever attended. The shows . . .

Nope. The name is not Giles, but we do seem to have been on the same bus during this era. So many great shows in the northeast for me in the 80's. Then moved south and those were my 90's shows.They did seem to have a special interest in Rochester.That 11/8/85 show still has some of my best memories - Aiko opener, Revolution second set opener, Brent singing "Baby what you want me to do?!" and those HUGE Phil bombs during Satisfaction. Sigh...hoping for a release someday.

07/21/74 Hollywood Bowl 04/22/77 Spectrum 01/06/78 Swing Auditorium 01/10/78 Shrine 01/11/78 Shrine Last Five: would have to research. Wasn't too happy with playing or concert experience by later '89. Maybe saw 5 concerts between January '89-'93.

I am compelled to chime in here with all of the Rochester talk on the board. But I feel like Mario Mendoza discussing my lifetime batting average with Ted Williams and George Brett, when I look at some of the lists you all are posting here- like hbob, Doc, and nitecat. Premier: 7/4/86 Rich Stadium 7/2/87 Silver Stadium 6/28/88 SPAC 6/30/88 Silver Stadium 9/14/88 MSG Dernier: 11/29-30/94 McNichols Arena 5/25,26,27/93 Cal Expo A lot of chatter here about Fillmore East 9/20/1970 as the next DaP. Can I suggest they hold that one in reserve for DaP 30-- with a tasty bonus disc of 9/19/70 as well (featuring a brilliant Dark Star)? At any rate, we need this show Dave! Then DaP 31= 6/30/88 Silver Stadium. I mean, haven't we waited long enough for a Normanized "Green Onions"?
