    "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.

Last 5 listens: 1. 4/23/77 (great AUD floating around lately but I listened to my SBD) 2. 9/30/80 (Acoustic set only) 3. Dave's Picks 2: 7/31/74 (Truckin through to the end of the show). One of my favorite sequences ever. 4. Dicks Picks 24: 3/23/74 (China>Rider through to the end of the show). Pure heaven. One of the best China>Riders ever and despite the false start, a great PITB>Uncle Johns>Dew>Uncle Johns>PITB combo 5. PNW 5/19/74...the whole damn thing. Wow.

but I am a middle-aged dude with an expanding waistline. I brought Christmas early to a co-worker. I gave him a "GD cake": a three-inch high stack of extra discs from E72, 1970, 1971, et al, plus my second copy of OFTV and one of 5 copies of Anthem of the Sun. He was pleased. not sure about scratches, fingerprints, mud, or dog feces on the discs, but he got a bunch of good stuff. spread a little sunshine (wink wink, nudge nudge), my fellow Deadheads.

But I would not call Gene Simmons an underrated bass player. The only bassline I remember him playing that wasn't a minimalist "hold down the beat" sort of thing was that deep Squire-like lick between verses on Detroit Rock City. Except Bob Ezrin wrote that. God of Thunder was awesome, but Paul Stanley's. There's some funk to the intro of Torpedo Girl, but Ace places that. Just not seeing Simmons as an underrated bass player. Great hard rock song writer though, for sure. Now if you want to talk about talent, Ace Frehley took about 90% of Simmons' and Stanley's songs and upgraded them 10 - 15 percentage points each. Almost literally every song he got his hands on that wasn't his, he composed solos and fills to bring them over the top. In fact, those solos and leads contributed so greatly to the final product, he should have been awarded songs credits. He wrote the hook and the lead to Calling Dr Love.

Discs 2 and 3 are so good. All sort sorts of unique touches. The coda to Wharf Rat with Garcia holding notes....the massive Playin'....a real weird Sugar Magnolia, dominated by a synchopated Keith riff that he almost never lets go of to fall into the more usual flow of the song, at times he 'bullies' Garcia and Lesh into following it....a wonderful and quiet Stella. Wow. I know 6/22 and 5/19 get the most plaudits, but 5/21 is also stellar.

This is exactly how mediocre shows of any group get hot reviews MDJim says: "I wouldn't say they were as good as the last time I saw them.. almost.. but it gets the five star approval rating. The sound in this tiny theatre was excellent and the boys were jamming with spirit." So last time they were 7 stars? It wasn't as good as in the past, but as long as you were there and the band was trying, it's 5 stars? Can people really not get over their own excitement (or ticket price shock) enough to at least even semi-objectively evaluate how the band sounded? If every attempt was worth "five stars", we'd be living in a utopia! Have we no critical thinking skills?

It was very good.. but the last time was one of the best of perhaps the 500 or so concerts I have seen. Ok.. 4 3/4 star seal of approval. The person I went with said it was one of the best shows she had ever seen. I didn't set down to write a show review, just sharing a little harmless hype. Good grief.

I think Jim got his point across pretty well, and I was glad to read it. I've never seen the Dan before but I, like probably 95% of the people reading his post, am familiar with the band. I don't think his post is going to lead anyone here to drop bunch of dough on a Dan show and then be disappointed because some guy on the internet (no offense Jim) said he had a good time.

....my favorite personal critical thought was the last one I had. I've seen Steely Dan twice in the last three years. The first one was 4.20 out of 5.0. The second was 4.40 out of 5.0. Why? Because my wife went with me on the second go around. She gave it 4.52 lilies out of 5.0. 'Cause she loves flowers and because I was with her. Critical enough? Settle back easy.

I believe the only proper response to idiotic criticism is to just......ignore it. I got turned on to Steely Dan in 1972. Countdown To Ecstasy was always my fave, followed by Pretzel Logic & Can't Buy A Thrill. Only saw them on the first "comeback" tour. Early'90's if I recall correctly. Although this was the only show I ever passed out on the lawn at Merriweather (it was sure nice of my friends to come looking for me when I didn't show up at the car), so I can't be 100% sure about the year. Oh, but it was a great show (I think!!). Last 5: Imagine box discs 2 & 4 Jim Hall & Bill Frisell Hemispheres Roy Buchanon The Prophet Moby Grape 20 Granite Creek Fats Theus Black Out

I'm biased as the Dan are my third favorite artist behind GD and Dylan. I saw them this summer and felt they were a half notch below the last time i saw them which was two or maybe three yearsa ago. That said, they are fantastic; Donald has assembled a great touring band and i think most music lovers would enjoy their show. Last five: Bob Dylan-Saved GD-6-26-73 Herbie Hancock-Fat Albert Rotunda GD-6-24-73 GD-6-22-73

Critical thinking may be underutilized these days, however, I don't know that it really applies to casual comments expressing subjective appreciation of an experience. Personally, I would give Jim's post 5 stars just for the Kid Charlemagne reference. I am not sure that the post was Jim's best post, or even the post of his which I enjoyed most, but I think that it is worth 5 stars anyway. Although now I fear my ability to be easily amused and rate things that I like highly, perhaps too high, is just a sign of some intellectual laziness and lack of critical thinking.

You need have critical thinking skills about real things, enjoying music is a subjective experience. Unless I'm writing a periodical or a paper I'm not expecting critical thinking about a Friday night at the local theatre. On another cheery note, I've also seen people mention problems on here that are not usual posters, who then receive email addresses, contact info., advice or direct contact with MaryE and the get their issues fixed. Thanking people for the help. So if someone needs a hand or an ear when they get busted stuff, help them out. Dont piss in their glass and call it lemonade while demanding they believe how great a juice maker you are. Nobody should care about any of this it's the friggin internet and none of it is a real representation of life or people. Shit the internet is worse than TV ever was as far bolstering up complete batshit BS. Lot of animosity and whiners around here lately. We need a Dave's 28 announcement to break the pissiness.

If this isn't the best WRS ever, I don't know what is. Yeah, DP 1 and DaP 13 are fabulous. But this one...shoooweee. The audio is tremendous on these '74 shows; Bobby's prelude is great;Jerry's slide is great; all vocals are great; the jam sections are great. Everything is mixed appropriately. The dynamic range and separation is perfect. This f***er almost sounds like a multitrack. You can turn it up to 11 with no distortion, unless it's coming from a limitation in your system. Shit, even the China Doll is great, and I usually blow past that one. They had me at the transition.

As someone who's worked in factory production of printed T-shirts for 30 years, I don't believe there's any way to QC these Box Sets (or DaPs). The numbers involved, which follow and are for the 15,000 Box Sets (not counting Promo Boxes etc.) make it cost prohibitive: 15,000 Booklets 15,000 Vickers Boxes 90,000 Digipaks 285,000 CDs - these are being handled 3(?) times: 1. Imprinting non-playing side 2. Burning the playing side 3. Insertion in Digipaks Any QC team would have to be 'in house' where a problem is LIKELY to occur; QC after the fact is a side-step in a project that has hard-line due dates and always has to move forward or risk missing the final due date of the product (Boxes being delivered to us). A QC team would add expenses to the project as well: 1. Travel 2. Lodging 3. Meals 4. Misc. Expenses These expenses would be passed on to us with increased pricing for the Boxes...say $50-$150 each. If indeed these are made in Mexico, now we're talking further expenses...and ask yourself WHO is the QC Team? You can't use regular staff since they have their daily responsibilities...outsiders would be temporary and don't know your product or even more likely won't give a damn. The solution? Rhino increases their production numbers and replace as needed. They know we're a fairly honest lot even though there's always a lunk-head or two who will try and get something for free; I would think they keep an eye on repeat offenders. I received one of the Boxes we all dread: 4 discs - new/pristine condition 15 discs had the following: scratches/scuffs/nicks/smears - of what I don't know: 2 discs/fingerprints - of whose I don't know: 2 discs/spray residue from an aerosol can or spray bottle: 1 playing side of a disc and 3 non-playing sides, which isn't good for anyone's optical drive. As it stands, I need 3 replacement discs and have contacted Dr. Rhino. Sorry to all for the lengthy opinion/explanation but an old adage applies here and has been amended: "LET THE BUYER BEWARE...THE BUYER IS QUALITY CONTROL".

It took exactly the length of set 1 of 10/3/76 from 30 trips to drive from The Record Lounge in south Lansing to Founders Brewing in Grand Rapids. I was pulling into my spot right as the drums of Samson and Delilah started up. Up in GR for the Chris Robinson Brotherhood tonight. I hope it gets at least five new Steely Dan stars on the Jim scale. Maybe not old Steely Dan five stars. Those stars are a little bigger than the new Steely Dan stars. Thats why there can still be five w/o Becker. Did somebody say Clifford Jordan? Blowin'in from Chicago is a great set. Five new Steely Dan stars for sure.

I always look at the box sets to see if they contain complete 'recordings' or complete 'shows'. The description says 'six complete shows', but Vancouver '74 looks like it might be missing the encore. Doesn't bother me in the slightest, just wondering. I've been thinking lately that if I had just the officially released shows, starting with the 'One From The Vault' in 1991, I'd be perfectly happy with those as a collection; I could do without the hundreds of other shows I've picked up over the last 30+ years. All the people involved with the releasing of the vault tapes have done an incredible job from start to finish and get a big 'Thank You' from me.

craigeyler, In the Vancouver '74 (5/17/74) show, an encore was not played. I have this show on tape and nothing beyond the Sugar Mags ending on my warbly B- cassette tapes. I have not seen any proof elsewhere (deadlists.com, DeadBase, setlists.net etc.) that there was an encore played that night.

Both out of line. Daniel is fairly new and likely just doesn't know any better. Led, I had no idea that you were a business owner. Oh wait, yeah I did. You post it constantly. And as one, you should understand that the customer comes first. Treat them accordingly. Unlike with your hotdog stand, folks here have no option to go elsewhere to purchase these releases. So when they receive damaged goods and encounter difficulty receiving replacements, they have every right to bitch.

It's not like the Dead ever really left us. I just plugged in recently arrived Bose Companion 20 system into my PC here in the late-night home office. Highly recommemended. Most bang for the buck... and all that. Good for all of you! God bless you all. Went drinking around Denver tonight with Hollywood friends. I am always pleased as plum when I can show them a good time, a good crowd, and good energy in this little cowtown. I mean, compared to L.A. Nothing like rocking that town but less likely to die here. \m/

funny, people on this site trying to defend this box. A turd is a turd, put a bow on it, spray perfume on it, wrap it up in a nice package, still a turd. They can't afford to do quality control? that is so ridiculous it's funny. So Bob drives around in his 63 corvette, all the way to the bank, and people defend a crappy product. There is NO EXCUSE for shitty discs, crappy customer service or down right greed. You will be able to pick this one up on ebay for 150.00 soon as people try and unload this slap in the face to the faithful. I would return the entire box to the shipper if they had included return postage, but they don't do that anymore, now I have to pay to return their shitty box. Let the buyer beware indeed. This is the last time for me that I will let these people rip me off. Bye bye, so long, farewell.

If you want nothing but five star shows, go see live Jazz. Last night went to an Arturo Sandoval show and he laid down a blazing 90 minute set of Afro-Cuban groove. On fire professionally, creatively, technically… had it all, in smiles ear to ear. Only problem, lots of tassel dress shoes that couldn’t even offer up a toe tap. Like being in a wax museum. Luckily I was in the front row so could blindly misbehave and enjoy the music the way I like to. I suppose the back row would have worked just as well. Either way, go see live jazz.

I totally agree....size of stars matter. Some people must have very little or very few stars for themselves, and so therefore want to complain about the way somebody else uses their stars...so silly! Sorry...couldn’t resist, carry on, happy Friday.... Play Dead Loud Today! KCJ

Been meaning to say that I find the PNW Box to be a great release. Happy, happy, happy!!!! Was hoping for summer '73, and to get some '74 on top of that was fat city. Yeah there are some vocal anomalies but overall the sound is freaking excellent. I dig a mix from this era where I can hear Bobby's guitar - I find his playing fascinating. Thanks to Alvarhanso for explaining Bobby's use of the Foxx Foot Phaser - thinking OMFG on Bobby's tone during my initial listen of the first show (good Sennheisers help with the nuance.) Artwork is beautiful and happy to have digipaks. I agree with those that the Daves series should start using Plangent - gladly pay to cover the extra production cost. And in the rare instances that I've had quality issues, Dr. R has always taken care of it no hassle. And Vguy, thanks for the jokes: Noah kept the bees in the "Archive" - I like that!!

Love this box... and have one more show to go. It hits all the sweet spots for me, no issues with the random missing parts. Two discs had minor issues but do play. It's all about the music. Fourth row center last night for Jack and Jorma. Five star all the way, perfect small gorgeous antique venue, minimal PA system. First set had new material and an emotional depth no doubt due to recent passing of Marty. Jack really cut loose on their blues infused second set on that new bass, it sounds fantastic. Good Shepherd was especially outstanding, as was Know You Rider. Pure Bliss. A great small show with a meet and greet afterwards, local brews for sale out front that you could take into the show, what more could one ask.

this NW box is gold. it is as far away from a "turd" as one can get. if this box _is_ a turd, then I am one happy pig rolling away the poo. ultimate box E72 next best box TTATS then comes NW box in my opinion.

Vancouver might be your kinda town...Oops, no, what I meant to say was: Infinite seating on the internet. Your seat will still be here after you're gone. I imagine you love GOGD music more than you hate the elements of the commercial activities that have been bothering you for a while now. Hope you come back here in the future after some healing. Take care of yourself.
