    Pechner's photos are from the May '74 Tour. Phil bounced back and forth between Big Brown and Mission Control in '74, I don't know that anyone has tracked it show-by-show.

    I'd love to get one of those tee shirts Jerry was wearing on 6-10-73!

    And we've got video of some sort from 68, 69, 70, 71, 72, 74.... but no 73.

    Listening to the Montana show as a prequel to the PNW shows and of the May shows it’s my favorite not bc I’m a dental floss tycoon but bc of the WRS>DS>CD

    I'll put my feelings this way, I wish that Jerry would have found some peace and got to the point where he took care of himself and led a more healthy lifestyle, without feeling like he was carrying the weight of the entire organization on his back. By that respect, I wish he was still around.

    At the same time, Jerry in 2020 would not be making the kind of music we'd imagine him to be.

    I agree with this, especially the part about finding peace and taking care of himself. Really that's all I want for anyone. A year after he died I found myself living and working in Marin County. One of my favorite places to grab lunch was this little hot dog shop on 4th street in San Rafael. The first time I went in I noticed they had a nice little photographic shrine to Jerry. Seems he loved their double kosher dogs too!

    Well, dang, I didn't even bother to look on youtube, those clips have been on there for ages. I was only looking at what I have on my drive(s) from torrent/FTP/etc sources.
    Okay, how about "no pro-shot" video form 1973. :)

    Yeah, I thought it was going to sell out relatively quickly, at least more quickly than the Giants Stadium box set. Who knows, sometimes it is hard to figure these things out -- July 1978 took a few years to sell out, and that is another one I thought would sell more quickly.

    I will never stop thinking that, instead of the PNW box, there should have been a May '74 box, containing the 14, 17, 19 and 21 May shows, and (a) Spring/Summer '73 box(es) containing...well, let's say the May and June '73 stand alone shows plus the Universal City shows (not that I know all of these shows but they're '73 so...you know.)

    I think it might not have because of people deciding to buying it then seeing the postage costs when they were about to click "go" and deciding not to go ahead. I know I did. I ended up using @Tom H as a postal service - he generously took delivery of the box and forwarded the contents sans box to me to save some money on postage.

    I think the combination of cost and physical size limited its audience. It is a beautiful box both musically and physically, but I debated whether I needed it.
