    5 shows, so 20 discs (maybe a few less). 2 Blu-ray. Box, book, goodies.
    $250? I think that's an easy sell.

    Bring out your Dead... studio that is. If I'd not dropped this on before
    reading the last few pages, live from 73-74 certainly would have been
    my choice. The first time I heard this a friend was anxious to get
    me over to listen to this 'great Dead record'. Mars Hotel and
    Wake of the Flood were pretty strong releases, so I was hopeful.
    For that sunny afternoon listen, it was a very great Dead record,
    and I'm grateful I can remember such things. A 70's best front cover.

    Somehow I can't imagine TPTB wading into a box of the complete 10/16-20/74 shows given they already released the 5 disc soundtrack, plus the well know issues with the tapes. Sorry for the wet blanket but I am just here to help!

    How do you know that Norman hasn't already mixed the whole thing?

    There are a couple I heard from 1970 where the sounds he gets on the solo are among the best guitar sounds he ever made.

    I am mostly thinking they already did a large box from those shows so I am speculating there is a long list of other box candidates they would do before going back.

    I've heard the Dane County Coliseum show from Madison WI, a few weeks
    before your Denver date, on the Midwestern Fall swing. It is not complete,
    but is very good with some cool cover art with a wolf over a stage shot of the band.

    My guess is also that a complete October 1974 box won't happen (poorly recorded tapes, cuts for the movie, problems between the band and Ned Lagin) but I'd be happy to be wrong.

    Just getting ready... I don't think I've been this excited for a Dave's Pick in quite some time. 11/17 & 12/14? Oh yeah! :bdance:

    That’s my thinking, too, although there’s nothing I’d love more to be wrong about. The box was definitely large for its time — along with So Many Roads it was the largest they’d released at that point, aside from the big studio boxes — but the Fillmore West box later that year seems to have moved the goalposts a bit.

    (Also, wow, how cool was it to get the GD Movie Soundtrack AND Fillmore West in the same year?)

    Fillmore West was a turning point. Seems like they were startled when it did as well as it did.

    Doesn't really belong in the Dead thread... yet I feel like I'm cheating putting it in the non-Dead thread... so I'll just say I've been thoroughly enjoying 4.17.99 Phil and Phriends today.

    I am continuing on my Europe 72 listening anniversary. The 4/14 Copenhagen show is wonderful like all the rest. Each show builds on the previous. And to hear how Playing in the band evolves is a treat. Also, I am so in love with Jerry’s guitar work and more specifically his tone on these shows. The Strat coupled with the wah pedal give the songs and the jams the necessary rock and roll bite.

    Ha! I knew I’d f up somewhere on that fever dream stream of conciousness so I’m glad I didn’t let myself down. Named jams are not my forte!

    To be fair to you, it's labeled "MLB" on the release, and I think that has happened elsewhere too (don't remember where), which doesn't help anyone trying to get all that straight...

    I hate to be the critic, but that photo is from 1974. Cow Palace, Daly City, CA.

    15 April 1978- The College of William & Mary. Playing In The Band goes there, so I am listening to it again.

    Continuing on with starter kit "Dark Star" on 10/20/68. Also snorting some major nose candy--saline solution and generic Flonase.
    I took the CA bar exam at the Cow Palace, in a side room off from the main hall. During a break I walked into the floor area of the main hall and thought, "Wow, this was a good place to the Dead" based on size. I have no idea what the sound was like. I'm sure they had the acoustics figured out.

    The Wall of Sound looks like if you had a friend that just couldn't stop buying speakers.

    Put on 7/14/76 this afternoon and got completely thrown by the first-set Drums. Thought I'd traveled through time or something.

    In one of the books in my recent GD book binge, I seem to remember reading the sound was bad, that's why they only played there twice (the second was New Years Eve 76, and that was because the Greg Kihn Band and Montrose played Winterland that night.)
