Grateful Dead Set Release of New Boxed Set: Pacific Northwest ’73-‘74: The Complete Recordings

The fine folks at Grateful Dead headquarters are prepping for the release of Pacific Northwest: ’73 – ’74, a new box set limited to 15,000 editions.

The six complete shows – 6/22/73, 6/24/73, 6/26/73, 5/17/74, 5/19/74 and 5/21/74 – will be available on 19 Discs, or via digital download (Apple Lossless or HD FLAC).

“In 1974, the Grateful Dead performed several of the most inspired improvisational jams of their entire 30 year touring career, jams that are described by many as some of the finest, purest music the Grateful Dead ever created live on stage,” longtime GD archivist David Lemieux told Rolling Stone. “At the top of the list, most Dead Heads consider the 5/19/74 Portland jam out of ‘Truckin’‘ to be the best of the best, and this restored and remastered release has this show sounding better than we ever could have imagined. It’s majestic, and soars to heights that were reserved for the best Grateful Dead shows ever. Including Portland ’74 amongst the Best Dead Shows Ever, up there with Harpur College, Veneta, and Cornell, is not a stretch; after you hear this performance, you’ll know why it’s so highly revered.”
