    I wonder why only set 2 exists in multitrack? Listened to the 1st couple songs from the archive and set one sounds pretty good to me.

    I guess it is one of those aces at the bottom of the deck.

    The presence of guests, especially famous guests, creates obstacles that make those releases less profitable, especially for the Dave's Picks business model.

    (Has there been a Dave's Pick that features any guests?)

    Anyway I agree this would be a good one.

    I think they should think about starting to release those guests shows now, while their level of popularity and cultural relevance is on the upswing.

    I do like that Danish "Dark Star" quite a bit. The sound is also fantastic.

    A multitack recording would make this a special release that might have a broader appeal. Get a bit of Rhino's marketing muscle behind a Dead show with Crosby and they could sell many copies. Now, pair it with 10 September 1972 when Crosby sits in on Dark Star, or release the David & the Dorks show along with the Winterland show, and there's a package for the ages.

    Starting up the Academy of Music run again as my first GD listen of 18'. The 3-21-72 Truckin'->OO->Wharf (also available on DaP bonus disc) for those not aware is a work of art. The entire suite contains numerous peaks and is definitely a 'group mind' performance with the jams highlighting the band playing as one entity. There are some strange occurrences taking place deep in the OO.

    Just received Dave’s 14 but alas no Bonus Disc (which I did not expect since I got the set for a very good price). One day I’ll get that Bonus Disc:)

    Funny, I just listened to that yesterday.

    Incidentally, I didn't know until now that they played Black Throated Wind during the soundcheck. There is a distant recording on the Archive.

    Happy New Year all. Hope it's a great one for everyone.

    The show I selected last night to see it in was the last night of the Europe 72' tour; Lyceum 5/26. What a magnificent show and way to end the tour and 2017 ;-)

    Wow, first set "One More Saturday Night" on 6/16/90. That's the bonus round for this guy.

    Unusual first set Truckin too, IIRC and Space before Drums.

    Good pick for the Vault series. I wasn't at 6/16/90 and that show was under my radar until released officially, despite being a really good one for the era.

    We Can Run does suck though. Embarrassing, even.

    It may have a larger ecological theme I've previously missed. It's like a companion to "Throwing Stones." :D

    All killer and no filler after that though: Estimated, Terrapin, Jam, Space (maybe these last two are filler) China Doll, Sugar Mag, Baby Blue.

    Classic this period screaming Bobby in Estimated. This is what would inspire the screaming Bobby pins I later saw sold outside a Ratdog show.

    They just started "Terrapin Crossroads." "Let my inspiration flow when I see Ross James playing rhythm." :biglaugh::hurl:

    Hey, if you don't get out of the United States much (I don't, never was a big traveler), check out the Jools Holland Hootenanny 2017 thread. Even if you don't really know what they're talking about, reading it is like being in the UK or Scotland or wherever. But don't post in it if you're from anywhere else or you'll f--k it up. :D

    A larger ecological theme that they beat you over the head with six times 'til tomorrow, you mean... ugh. The message is okay by me but the sanctamonious and trite delivery not so much. They were usually much more artful, Throwing Stones included (shipping powders back and forth for instance got to a whole bunch of stuff that was going on while still being at least somewhat not pedantic).

    I finished the Kreutzmann book. It turned out to have more depth than I would have figured. (Anti-drummer prejudice maybe? :winkgrin: )

    I'll get some thoughts together, maybe. Meanwhile anyone who is thinking about reading it should do so.
