"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.

Thanks for the link eyes43. I was able to catch Peter Rowan's set. Dang, that brought back memories. I used to see him at the Birchmere in Alexandria, VA some 30 years ago. He and his band still sound as great as ever!

Another great 1972 show

I am continuing my gentle canter through Europe 1972, and today was Amsterdam, 5/10/72. Its a show that meant absolutely nothing to me-I've played it before-3 or 4 times , I guess, but nothing stuck in my mind about it. Surprising-because its amazing! The first set-in fact the first two cds are pretty good-like any other cds of a band you like playing at the top of their game. Its on the 3rd cd that things really take off-an incredible jam from Truckin' to The Other One-Me and Bobby Mcghee-The Other One and winding up with Wharf Rat. One of the best uses of a wah wah pedal I have ever heard. A truly exceptional sequence of music. The 4th cd feature some more high energy music, punctuated by another excellent Sing Me Back Home. If they hadn't played so many other great shows in Europe 1972-and maybe if they hadn't all been released at the same time (not that I'm complaining) this would surely have been heralded as one of the best shows of all time.

I normally leave a gap after playing a Europe 72 show...but after this I felt like some more-so off we go into Rotterdam for the following night.

Great news from Sixtus, too-happy days indeed!

Congratulations, Ingrid, Tigran, and Sixtus!

Today is Robert Hunter's birthday, I believe. The word gifts given us by this master poet make the music we all cherish infinitely more fascinating. Without Robert's lyrics, I know I would not crave this band as much as I do. Even on song versions where the group's playing may lack a certain X Factor, I can always take interest in, and find new depth in Robert's poems. Happy Birthday, Robert! You are a crucial member of the Grateful Dead.

Bolo / Luca Brasi

It always amused me that Sonny needed an older generation Italian to "translate" the Sicilian message, "Luca Brasi Sleeps with the Fishes". What if Clemenza wasn't there at that hour to interpret? Sonny would have been like "hey check out this new wall decoration someone sent as a get well gift for Pop...this is so cool....a couple of fish in a bulletproof vest - why didn't I think of that?!?" And then Tom Hagen is like, "no Sonny, this is a Sicilian message" and Sonny's like "I know Tom, I know! I didn't want to discuss too much of the family business in front of Michael - but as always, our trusted concierge, you know best." And turning to Michael, Sonny says, "Tom's right... It's a Sicilian message alright... It means, if Pop makes it through this, he needs to start wearing a bulletproof vest..."

D&C Headband Dude

My guess is Warren Buffet or Bill Gates.. perhaps Mark Cuban?

Lucky bastard..

I hit a string of NY area shows about a decade or so ago. I was working that way and it was easy for me to get there and they were playing a lot.. I guess if was P&F / Further. Anyway.. there was this one guy, thin, kinda wiry.. he was front and center at every NY area show I caught.. and he was a jumper, up and down, up and down.. like straight up and straight down. So we aptly called him Tigger (as in Winnie the Poo Tigger). Perhaps it's Tigger.

Kindness Prevails! So Many Thanks

Oh man, so many wonderful, thoughtful, kind, even creative remarks and well wishes - We are truly touched. I've shown Ingrid All of The Love that's being offered for Tigran and our family. She is similarly warmed in her heart.

Thin, he caught that Bucket Opener too - I think he was so excited he pooped! I am an expert poop changer and swaddler, for the record. Two burps in a row meant he was PSYCHED for second set.

Truly Feeling The Love.

Thank you All for offering such a kind Family Welcome to our newest Deadhead and lifetime clan member. Another generation destined to know Jerry and The Grateful Dead.

With Fond and Sincere Regards

Bucket opener tonight for Tigran

I almost added the animal reference of "Hell in a Bucket" earlier related to my Tiger song ideas... it mentions "your chair and your whip and your pets" and the tiger snarl at the end...

Apparently someone called Bobby about Tigran and he's pointing out the Hell in a Bucket connection in addition to my thoughts.

Portland 05-19-74

Like taffy1969 wrote, this has been a favorite for more than 30 years now, can't wait for the official release. We first had this show missing 6 songs; later on the six songs were added to make the show complete. The reason that six songs were initially left out was the fact that the vocals were too low in the mix. Portland '74 is a two-track tape, isn't it? So it will be re-mastered but no re-mix is possible? That's fine with me, always interested in complete shows as long as the mix isn't terrible...and the mix is superb apart from the six songs with low vocals. Glad to see these six shows available as a boxed set!

It's poker night here in South Jersey. I'm playing Hold'em with the same four guys I've been playing Hold'em with for at least since Rockin' The Rhein came out. That is in fact the show that made me feel the magnetic pull and infectious delight of the Grateful Dead (Sugar Magnolia in particular). Not long after, my Uncle sent me Ladies and Gentlemen, where the best core version of Uncle John's Band resides, in my humble opinion. I just informed them of who you are and that you have a baby Sixtus in the world with you tonight.

My buddy Dominic, who is hosting tonight, breaks out a bottle of 21 year old Redbreast Irish whiskey. My buddy Jimmy the Fish packed up the bong. I put Sugar Magnolia and Uncle John's Band on the stereo, and we toasted baby Tigran, Son of Sixtus.

My only regret in this whole escapade, is that I flashed the picture of your dead net avatar, and there's a serious discussion going on about locating and tearing down a Dead End street sign for Dominic's bar.

I bought an obstructed view seat at the box office the day of the show. The view was obstructed by the soundboard! The ticket was in the taping section. The view definitely was obstructed, so I stood off to the side in the aisle.
Also found an upper level ticket on the ground before the show.

Sixtus & Skull & Jim and boy did that run amuck

Sixtus :-)

Skull - I agree with your opinion on DaP 16 & 21. I would have said 16 was "airier"? I gave all of a 5 minute listen to Stella's, both were amazing clear. That one on 16 thinnest sound great at volume. A hollow hall, standing on the edge of the pit, glowing before you, the way a stella should be, right?

Anyway, how do account for the difference in recording techniques. Feeds used? Mixes made on fly? Mike placement? All of the above? Opinions on sound at both venues?

Jim - when I went back I saw you had the voiced on the 16/21 recordings/shows. But what I went back for was you very fine quote - "flawlessly flawed". :-) You probably stole it. That was Twain, right?

In the time since I've started this, I've got thru both recording of Stella. I think 21 is a little closer, warmer and intimate. Where the jam in 16 is "larger/spacious", 21's is bluer, more controlled, was it played on a Sunday? Sounds like a Sunday. Crazy huh?

In any event Stella is a great across the eras tune. It may sound different but it's one you can get lost in your own thoughts while listening to and still snap out for the return to lyrics. But all the while you weren't really thinking about the era, but floating on the sound, right? Just hit the 3 from the spring 90 collection. The one from 1990-03-16 - Capital Centre - Landover, MD, was stella. That recording was very dimensional (in my book). Also the later Stella's soared, Phoenix from ashes shit (imho). I'm always impressed(?);-) with the width and depth of arcane knowledge.

I'm excited about this box, because comparisons will be nice, but yeah, the box. I do like then cluttering the shelfs. As I look around, what other band has this many "box things", that aren't just repackage stuff already available. Now where am I going to put it,,, the books must go! Yes dear I gave them to charity, I knew you were never going to read War & Peace again. You said Infinite Jest twice was enough. (she still looking up footnotes)

Speaking of box sets, is Pink Floyd going to release another box set? The Later Years?

Re: Hippychic & Dave's 16

The recording has always sounds papery and thin, at least throughout most of the first disc. There's just not a lot of depth to it. And too much hiss. Things improve somewhat as the show progresses, but not by much. Then again, most of Kidd's recordings sound that way, at least to my ear.

Dave's 21 (love this one) is a Rex recording, and the difference is like proverbial night and day. It's not without its own flaws (name a recording that doesn't have them) but there's much more resonance.

Again, not saying I don't appreciate Dave's 16. It's become a repeat play. But my ear sockets need to adjust each time I listen to it before I settle in for the ride.

So you named her after Jerry's "Tiger" guitar... (or perhaps the Tiger jam?)

I predict you get a Row Jimmy tonight for Tigran:
"Rock your baby to and fro,
Not too fast and not too slow."

Hardly likely at this point.
Only if this box sold out within the first four days or a very short time, much quicker than expected, would Rhino/Warner Music Group think of quickly creating an AME.

Hip Hip Hippy Hooray!

Sixtus so happy for you and yours. You and Jim and a couple of others may be the most energetic people I have ever seen. How you can keep us posted, be a married man, a father, an employee, wow! Wish some of that energy would rub off on me. Congrats to yall. Dang my short term memory, the Mrs' name escapes me, maybe Ingrid??? Let her know we are all pulling for you all!

Dick's Picks 19

The "mother-of-all-1973-shows"?
Hardly likely.
Just one of my all-time favorite shows, as with the big Dick Latvala himself.
I am under the impression that Dave Lemieux was reading Latvala's notes, so in my minute, twisted, perverse, acid-soaked, pea-brain, Dick was still calling the shots (from the great beyond)

Mentally, I still can see those two AudioMagnetics C-90 Type-I cassettes with poor muddy and hissy sound in my cheap boom-box cranking out this show.
