Just received this via email
------------------------------------------

Dennis McNally asked me to spread this announcement far and wide about Dick's Picks 35, then we'll deal with a few more items:


A Note About This Dick's Pick: The Legend of the Houseboat Tapes


Although the Dead's vault is enormous and impressively full, the band certainly doesn't have a tape of every show it played; in fact, they don't even have a copy of every show they recorded. Tapes drifted off in a variety of ways - including Jerry Garcia handing them out. And therein lies the story of Dick's Picks #35.


This spring, our archivist David Lemieux got a call from Donna Jean Godchaux-Mackay. It seems that in the late summer of 1971, just before Keith Godchaux began rehearsals with the Dead, Garcia handed him a big box of tapes and said, "Here, this is our most recent tour. Learn our music." The irony was that Donna Jean doubts mightily Keith ever bothered to listen to them - he'd never listened to the Dead all that much before he auditioned, first with Garcia and then the rest of the band - he just had an uncanny innate facility for the music. In any case, he left the tapes on his parents' houseboat in Alameda, and there they stayed. For 35 years.


A month ago, his brother Brian and son Zion were cleaning out the houseboat, found the tapes, and gave them to Donna, whose jaw dropped. One call to Lemieux later, and the Dead's long-lost missing tour from the summer of 1971 had resurfaced. Master tapes include April 28 and 29 at the Fillmore East (released as "Ladies and Gentlemen," taken from the multi-track masters), the 7/31 Yale Bowl (alas, blank), a small piece of the Hollywood Bowl, Berkeley Community Theatre, and others.


Dick's Pick #35 will be four CDs: the complete San Diego (8/7/71) show, all that was salvageable of the 8/24 Chicago show, and an hour-plus from the Hollywood Bowl (8/6). It will be available at dead.net Friday, June 17th.


Not a soundboard-recorded note of that tour's music circulates among Dead Heads, so this is a truly remarkable find. How they survived 35 years in a watery environment simply proves, yet once again - if you needed convincing - that God smiles on the Grateful Dead.


# ********* Other coming attractions.


By now you won't be surprised to hear that sometime in the future there will be some sort of 'product' release, it happens all the time. But I was told one interesting item slated for later this year, that is cleared for your consumption!


In mid-October, there will be two items released, dealing with the same material. The Grateful Dead shows at the Fillmore West from 2-27-69 to 3-2-69 are legendary, and much of Live Dead comes from those shows. There will be a 10-CD package, limited to 10,000 copies, and available only from dead.net, that will contain every single note from the entire run. Rhino/WEA will release a 3-CD compilation of selected cuts from this series. The Rhino/WEA package will be available everywhere, including the GDForum store.


So, there you go, now you have something else to look forward to!

God Bless the Grateful Dead

Thank you Rob for the info!

Phew - mixed feelings on this whole saga these last couple of weeks: initially elation at the news that a bunch of '71 Dead had made it back into the vault (including one of my top 5 GD shows - Yale Bowl 7/31/71), some slight disappointment that the Yale Bowl reels are blank (WHAT???? ), but what fantastic content for DP35.

Add to this the LDBS (or Live Dead Boxed Set, for non-afficianados), and the new Download series that started this week & it's a very, very good time to be a Deadhead...

Yes I saw the first two releases in the download series up on dead.net. Does anyone know how often they plan to release additional volumes in this series? I don't recall seeing any press release or article on this series. It's very exciting indeed!
