    "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.

    I Sympathize With Everyone Having Problems With The Dead Store

    I have had two Dave’s Picks go everywhere but to my address........which for some reason didn’t include my apartment # ............therefore no delivery..........One arrived months later.......and a second one #32 is in transit supposedly and maybe arriving shortly. I had to file with the Better Business Bureau over this foolishness. Which seemed to get a quicker response from The Dead Store......To which I say good luck to all whom have problems with The Dead Store Customer Service.......I have been through the phone calls .....the emails........and calling Warner’s main office to no avail.......it is a sad situation.........

    Here’s the statement that was emailed several weeks ago.

    —————-
    Cause when things go wrong, wrong with you, it hurts me too
    It's been quite a year and we know how patient you have been, how patient you still are. It has always been, and will always be, our mission to provide the best service to you, the fans. As you are more than likely aware, a complex warehouse move resulted in a significant backlog of orders and while that warehouse is working as quickly as they can to deliver, we've turned 100% of our focus and dedication toward a new facility which promises to restore peace to the Dead.net community in the next few months. Trust us, this steam locomotive is rolling down the track!
    ————

    You can try sending a PM to Marye now,.

    PNW Customer Service

    May the force be with you, brother, sorry about your missing disks. I have a couple of defective ones and 2 months later, no word of a replacement.
    Theres an interesting article on the web about a company by the name of Direct Shot that most of the major labels have put in charge of all physical media distribution. About the same time this happened, Dead.net customer service went straight in the toilet and has not emerged - “warehouse consolidation” indeed. What is disappointing is that nobody at Dead.net has made a direct statement (at least that I have seen) that they are aware of the problem thats been allowed to drag on. The loyal Dead fanbase deserves a straight answer about the problem and when our outstanding issues will be rectified.
    Jerry would be very unhappy about how we’ve been treated.

Of all the official ‘77 releases, Dick’s 34 is my least favorite. It just doesn’t catch my ear the way most shows from this year do. Not sure why. But after Dick’s 3, 10, and 29, it was something of a let down for me. More so alongside the Dave’s and box set ‘77 releases. Guess it’s that subjectivity creeping in again. Glad to see it getting some love on vinyl though.

Sometimes you get what you are hoping for, and that is the case with this box for me. I was really hoping that we would get a '73 box this year, and the addition of the '74 shows is the icing on the cake. I am currently finishing up a more focused listen of all three of the '73 shows after giving the entire box a quick listen to identify skips or defects, hopefully I didn't miss any. The sound on these shows seems great to me overall, the adjustment during the early songs of each show and the couple of vocal drop outs aren't really even a distraction. Everything sounds clear and distinct, and while Jerry is not at the forefront of the mix on every song, I didn't really ever feel like he was lost in the mix either. The extended jam sequences are so good on the '73 shows that I can't even say that the Dark Star sequence from Portland is the highlight and I love Dark Star. As far as the tempo, I dig the slow tempo stuff from the Dead, whatever the era, and the slow tempo stuff in this box is about perfect. There is, however, plenty of energy on the more up-tempo stuff in these shows. All in all, this whole run just reinforces my love of '73 Dead, a time period that seems like a peak to me. Next up, a more detailed listen to the '74 shows in the box. All of the performances of EOTW from the '74 shows really jumped out at me on my initial listen, so I am eager to give them a more focused listen.

Good Day All. My apologies for using this forum for what might be an unrelated Grateful Dead question. I am hoping that someone might be able to help. If you can, I would ask that you use a PM for the reply. I am hoping to communicate with someone on this board that would have access to the Northbrook Public Library in Illinois. If you might be able to help I would genuinely appreciate it. My apologies to all for the interruption. As for the PNW box...this very well could be, the most beautiful pieces of art to hold music in. A perfect place for this music...and the box is still available. Difficult to believe! Have a beautiful day. Regards.

I dunno, sounds sweet to me... My box arrived in good condition with one small scuff on one of the discs, nothing to get in a twist about as it plays fine. We are so lucky and spoiled to get this kind of material, most bands don't have anywhere near the amount, and in such great sound quality. Also some charge 2-3 times more. I get the frustration with some of the tunes having dropped vocals, but it doesn't bug me that much within the scope of the whole set. Just my two bits i guess...

....A chicken farmer walks into a bar, sits next to a woman and orders a glass of champagne. The woman perks up and says, "How about that? I just ordered a glass of champagne, too!" He turns to her and says, "What a coincidence. This is a special day for me, I'm celebrating." "This is a special day for me, too, and I'm also celebrating," says the woman. "What a coincidence," says the man. They clink glasses and he asks, "What are you celebrating?" "My husband and I have been trying to have a child. Today, my gynecologist told me I'm pregnant!" "What a coincidence," says the man. "I'm a chicken farmer. For years all my hens were infertile, but today they're finally fertile." "That's great," says the woman. "How did your chickens become fertile?" "I switched cocks," he replies. "What a coincidence," she said. Hardy har har....

What´s the odds? After almost exclusively listening to the PNW box over the last two weeks, I went for an Airplane album. At the same moment as Martys You Wear Your Dresses Too Short from Winterland 72 were thundering from my speakers, I read the news about his demise. So sad. In my view his voice was the superior one in JA ... and somehow so ahead of its time. At the end of the song Grace says "Thank you Marty!" Yeah, thank you for your contribution to the psychedelic revolution

I'm with charlie3 and all his comments. I love this box. Had a first listen to all shows, very satisfied. I'm taking a break from that era with other years, but soon I will relisten to that most excellent Vancouver 73 show. Love the box.

When do subscriptions usually come out and do they sell out quick?

I was also sold at 6 shows from 1973-1974. How can you not be, right? I find it's much easier to fine tune the sound on headphones on a system with an EQ. I suppose that's true of most of these old recordings, but it really helps with the 1973 concerts on the tracks where Jerry isn't quite as loud as usual. Even guitar volume considerations aside, the headphones are an essential listening medium for all shows. I get a hugely different perspective on the music. Headphones. Buy good headphones.

The Dave’s Picks 2018 subscription announcement came on 10/24 of last year. They usually close it off I think after New Year's. The subscriptions have never sold out. Any of the 18K that are not sold in the preorder session are sold ala carte. They were close to selling out this year. We know this because they told us they were close, and therefore had very few ala cart copies left to sell to people when each release was due to come out. The few ala carte copies for each release sold out in a couple hours. It feels like the Dead are more popular now than any time since Jerry died, at least going by Dave's Picks sales and Dead & Co attendance. I think this may be the year we see a Grateful Dead Dave’s Picks Subscription sellout. Buy it. P.S - better to buy it early because you get it for $99 and free shipping. Later in the subscription sales window the price goes up to $115 and I believe shipping has a cost at that point. Plus even if you were guaranteed an ala carte copy, you only get the bonus disc if you pay for the subscription. And the bonus disk is the best thing since One from the Vault.

I hope my doing a deep dive into a statement of yours doesn't piss you off, "MindLeftBody". Nothing personal, just a Historygeek being triggered! Seems like pretty good factual support for the importance of this box here: "They're also rarely performed songs like The Race is On, Box of Rain, Money Money, and the only 1973 Bird Song" I was pretty surprised to see that there was only one '73 Bird song! And glad it's on the 3CD set I bought (even if it has that 13:39 stumble-skip in it). Too surprised. I hit THE BOOK for "just the facts". (per DeadBase III, so some numbers may have changed): 87 (55 post-Pig) shows in '72, 73 shows in '73, 40 shows in '74. More than 1866 shows played 65-95. The Race Is On: seems to have been included in a few acoustic sets '69/'70 before entering performance rotation on 3/19/73 for 24 '73 performances and 8 '74 performances. 10/19/74 was the last TRIO until 9/27/80/The Reckoning shows. Box Of Rain: debuted 10/9/72 (about 2 years after the studio version was released!) for 11 '72 performances and 27 '73 performances. From 11/19/72 to 6/26/73 it was NOT played at only 4 shows. It missed 3 shows before being played 7/28/73 for the last time until 3/20/86. Bird Song: after a 14 performance run in '71, Bird song took 11 months off before entering regular rotation for 29 performances in '72 and 12 in '73. 9/15/73 was the last BS until 9/25/80/The Reckoning shows. Maybe the sentence should be: "There are also relatively rarely performed songs like The Race Is On, Box Of Rain, Money Money, and Bird Song". All 4 songs ARE quite rare in terms of 65-95, but two of them were not uncommon during the period covered by this box and 6/26/73BS is NOT the only '73 BS. I started this post because I thought the statement I'm scrutinizing was wrong. After my research and number-crunching, I do agree with the jist of the original statement, despite the, ummm, "factual deviationality" shall we say.

30 Days of Dead is all soundboard quality. 6/22/73 is the first produced / engineered version of Bird Song. I think the point being made was that one had to delve into the soundboard archives to hear '73 Bird Song, until now.

seeing how it's about facts, and your using a Deadbase that came out in 1988, i'll update it to a Deadbase from 1996 and the total listed is 2,314 shows from 1965-95. (that was the factoid that made me dig out my Deadbase 50, it's fukken heavy) the last Birdsong of 1973 is from Providence and only circulates as an AUD, but is worth a listen as it's the last Birdsong until the 1980 acoustic sets. https://archive.org/details/gd73-09-15.aud-sbd.cotsman.16174.sbeok.shnf…

I really like the duet JG & DG do on Dolly Parton and Porter Wagner's "Tomorrow is Forever". There weren't that many, but each is good. Jerry always took a nice break in there, too. Was looking through my cassettes from ago to find the 6/22/73, Vancouver, show and I found it! maxell UD xl 2, C90 with faded, but legible, writing on it. It's got a 3/82 date of reception on it. The tracks were: Side A: … Bertha BIODTL Deal Mexicali Box of Rain Bird Song The Race is On Side B: Here Comes Sunshine He's Gone/Truckin' What a show!!! Thanks, PTB.

The gentlemen below are correct: Bird Song: played 301 times total. 13 times in 1973 (Providence was indeed the last until 1980) Race is On: Played 59 times total. 27 times in 1973, 9 times in 1974 (and then no more until they played it 10 times in 1980) Box of Rain: 158 times total. Also 27 times in 1973, and then no more by the dead until 1986. However, Robert Hunter performed it dozens of times from 78-86 before the dead dusted it off. In fact he's performed it 112 times total (the most recent being 2014). caveat: I have only had 1 coffee today so please excuse any errors...

Ice Cream Cone Kid - nice vid clip from the Princeton Record Exchange. (20 South Tulane St, Princeton, NJ) I used to go there a lot when I live in Jersey. Worth the trip if in the area. Again this site has only cost me money. First Dylan's Bootleg 14, then Jimi's Electric Lady, today with the Sabbath "Paranoid" box set. I can't afford to come here anymore! Of course I have to buy Dave's this year since he let me pick all four releases, so there's another chunk of coin in November. For those that care, Lockn 2019 tickets just went on sale (alumni sale) (250 a pop for 4 days!,,, best music deal out there) If in the North Jersey area, my buddies there say "the cosmic Jerry band", has been tearing it up, knocked out a 4 hour show the other night. On the recording quality front, I'm always searching archive for old 78 recording and found this collection the other night at work. Played this collection at the store and was surprised at the general "likes" it got. If so inclined, follow link and listen to the second song, "Am I Blue", by Ethel Waters and Her Ebony 4. A 1929 recording! https://archive.org/details/VINTAGE78RPMRECORDS/New+folder+(2)/Vintage+…

I emailed Dr. Rhino about 3 weeks ago, and after a couple of small status communications from him/her over that time period, my replacement disc #11 from Vancouver 74 arrived, and I finally get to listen to that show in it's entirety. Will be enjoying that starting.....now! Dick's Picks 34 Vinyl to arrive on Thursday! Can't wait for last Dave's announcement of the year. I think he alluded to the fact that we may not see 80's, so I personally am hoping for some '79, '90 or '91..... KCJ

I was never crazy about this one. Odd choice for vinyl when you stop to think about how many better ones there are. I found the show to be just kind of average for 1977. The best thing about it are the bonus tracks from 11/2 at Seneca. There's a really hot Playing in the Band on Dave's Picks 24 from Berkeley. When I say hot, I mean this is in my top 5 all time. There is an intensity that Jerry and Phil provide, which seems to bring up everybody's game. I haven't listened to this show since it came out, and even then I was preoccupied and never gave it its full due.
