Now that Soundboards are no longer on the LAMA, which show should be the next Dick's Pick?

Should they mix in some commonly know/held shows like 5/8/77 or go for some unknown gold (like the latest Download from 12/73?

I say they stick with historical references, that show different facets of the band- obviously the good nights, but also some of the mediocre nights. There have always been atleast one gem in each show I've heard, no matter how bad Jerry sounded that night, or how many times their timing was off. But if the sound quality is great I think I would still go after it, if its significance was defined by the band.

8-6-74 The Wall of Sound: Roosevelt Stadium Jersey City New Jersey. Its a good juan and the set list and the playing are excellent.

I could be wrong but I don't think they would choose the Cornell 5/8/77 show as a Dick's PIcks. It is a great one and one of the best shows from the 1970's but its a show that almost everyone has by now mostly because of the word of mouth among the community. Not only do lots of people have it but they most likely have an A+ quality soundboard, so a Dicks Picks of that show wouldn't even be a step up in quality. I would look for possibly a gem thats a bit under the radar or something that doesn't have quite the recognition as 5/8/77 or 8/27/72. Cowboys Neil's suggestion of 8/6/74 is a good choice.

I wouldn't mind some more stuff from '86-'89, and, although there were plenty of subpar moments in the 90's, there's some excellent 90-91 shows with Horsnby...just my humble opinion...

Actually, very little of 8/6/74 was used for DP31; the whole show was available the other day on etree.org

Re 8/6/74 - most of the second set of 8/6/74 isn't in the Vault and, even if it turned up now, there's no way that GDP are going to revisit this show for a second release.

As for 9/20/70, this one is not in the Vault at all - what circulates (as well as the circulating portions of 9/18/70 and 9/19/70) is from some 1st gen cassette copies made in the early 70's. Unless the masters turn up, there's no way they're going release this one (and, it should be said, the Caution has some MAJOR sound issues too) - that's a shame as a compilation of all 4 nights from the run (including both Dark Stars from 9/17 and 9/19, the Dancin' from 9/18 and the acoustic Box Of Rain from 9/17) would be the greatest Dicks Picks EVER!!!

Where's Chuck, with his suggestions...?

They just released DP 36 in the past week, 9/21/1972 from the Spectrum in Philly. It's a complete show with some filler on the 4th disc from 9/03/1972 at Folsom Field in Bolder, Co. all for $25.

Probably be a little while before the release #37.

9/20/70 not in the vault huh? Man that's a bummer. I've always felt that show is on a par with 5/2/70 & 2/13/70. Maybe the tapes are in someones basement(like the houseboat tapes!
Actually the copy that is floating around isn't terrible, just not as good as other stuff from that era!

One factor is Dick's Picks are live to two-track recordings (just as they went down, no overdubs or fixes in the mix) and the vault recordings are multi-tracks.

I agree!

Perhaps Giants Stadium from '91, the second night, with the Eyes opener and Dark Star tease throughout. I believe Might As Well was the first set closer too. That is a truly great show from the later years. They definitely tapped into the old magic that night. Although it doesn't show it below, there is a Dark Star theme throughout the show.


Giants Stadium, East Rutherford, NJ (6/17/91)

I am not sure, but I thought I read an interview with Dick before he died where he mentioned that they did not actually have a proper copy of 5/8/77 or something like that.

I have two versions and would jump on the commercial in a heartbeat.

The Weight



This show would be a VERY nice choice! I was there with bells on and it was truly as good as it gets - just a wonderfully sublime show. There was lots of discussion about this show on the Philzone at one time and many Deadheads agree it might be THE BEST show of the 1990's and I whole heartedly agree. It was definitely in my top 5 or 6 of all time and I saw many. I believe It was the only Dead show ever that opened with "Eyes of The World" and what a version it was! Bruce Horsby sat in and is all over every single Jam - and Jerry was simply in the zone. It was an eerie rainy night and there was indeed multiple "Dark Star" teases all night long and they just what the doctor ordered. The 2nd set highlight had to of been the brilliant combo of "Truckin>New Speedway Boogie" - just amazing but you HAD to be there - every song was played well with lots of energy and the crowd was diggin' it big time. A magical night. I had a copy of this sucker at one point but its gone, lost forever - - I MUST find another...soon. Might have it on cassette - I'll have to search...

I would go with this one (although I am biased because I was there

06/22/92 (Mon) Star Lake Ampitheater - Burgettstown, PA

Set 1: Jack Straw, Loser, Walkin' Blues, It Must Have Been The Roses, Queen Jane Approximately, Ramble On Rose, Beat It On Down The Line, Deal

Set 2: Scarlet Begonias > Fire On The Mountain, Victim Or The Crime > Dark Star* > Drums > Jam > Spanish Jam > The Other One > Stella Blue > Goin' Down the Road Feeling Bad > Around and Around, E: Knockin' On Heaven's Door

Comment: *2Nd Verse Only

Also, the Shoreline show from 8-16-91 with the first set Dark Star and the Scarlet>Victim>Fire and Bruce Hornsby. 9-10-91 with Branford Marsalis is pure magic in MSG

DP36 was released last November. Therefore, it's been 6 months since the last DP...the longest duration without a new release thus far since the series started. Plus, the Winterland box set pre-sale which was inadvertently posted in March and then quickly pulled has still not surfaced. Needless to say the GD camp has been boring in recent months. I suppose we're spoiled. However, with the issues on the LAMA and then no new releases in 6 months....makes you wonder what the direction is of the organization.
