    on Dicks Picks 7, Dark Star is split into 2 tracks, IIRC the 2nd part is called Spam Jam.

    They'd do that for the $, more songs = more publishing rights.

    Don't be silly. However, hidden amongst the strange historical tales, some fictional, some bearing a grain of truth, is some genuine spiritual wisdom. It's not as easy to find as in the Pali Canon, or the 3rd door of a Lakota sweat lodge, having been obscured by the layers of craziness, but a few gems are hidden therein.

    They split Dark Star into two tracks on the DP.

    If you want some more unhinged, knock your socks off Playing in the Band, check out 11/18/72. Jerry and Phil both on fire. Not the greatest sound quality, but it’s well well worth it. The Charlie Miller transfer is the best imo.

    1974-09-14 This is a good show, everything is pretty hot although it feels a bit short on the meat (in these regards it reminds me of the Cap Center, 07-29). Everything is a dodgy aud until the end jam of Scarlet, when a good SBD starts up. Excellent Scarlet it is, again almost 12 minutes and Jerry plays twice through the middle solo (which is the most you're going to get in 1974). They play the end riff ten zillion times and then Billy doesn't stop, so they trickle out into a weird ending. Loser is hot. WRS is killer, Jerry is extra here. Tennessee Jed is hot, as is Half Step. The "meat" is a Truckin'>Jam>MLB>Wharf Rat, which is very good but feels a bit brief for what it could have been, although this is somewhat mitigated by throwing in a really good version of Eyes a few songs later.

    Very good, solid show.

    Spot on. Although he does have a silly grin on his face prior to that.

    The Pacific NW box I ordered a month-and-a-half ago finally showed up today. Never did receive a reply to any email I sent, nor did I get a shipping notification. However, this thing is stunning, wow what a nicely put together set. I already had the flac rips but I’m really glad I snagged the physical product in this case.

    Pathetic. I waited over a month for my July 78 box, even though it said "In Stock." The Grateful Dead should not be stress inducing! :)

    Glad you finally got the PNW box - good stuff, should keep you busy :)

    So far tonight: Playing in the Band October '74. The 31 min version from the soundtrack. Killer!
    Another PitB right now: 73-06-22. 13 min shorter than the one above but it doesn't matter. Killer!
    Next: Dark Star>Morning Dew 73-10-19

    I was waiting a long time for mine also. Yes once you pull it out of the box it is a stunner. Looks way more impressive than just the stock photos I've seen of it. You'll probably get your shipping notice later, I just got mine today, one day after receiving it.

    Listened to Dicks 26 today, and just wow. This thing is a smoker, with the highlights being the second Eleven, where Jerry and Phil just about burn the place down, and the Lovelight you mention. The Dark Star is a beauty, never a dull moment like most of the Stars from the period I've heard. Simple as much of the organ playing is, I love T.C. in the shows from this period, and love Mickey's use of the cowbell.

    After listening to a bunch of '80's shows over the last couple of weeks, this one is a big time attitude adjuster. They certainly became more 'proficient' over the next few years, but never again would they have this kind of unbridled rawness and energy. Damn, I love this stuff.
