Order it here, limited edition




Grateful Dead Live at Yale Bowl, Yale University July 31, 1971



Grateful Dead Live at Auditorium Theatre August 23, 1971


Bonus disc....

Grateful Dead Live at Hollywood Palladium August 6, 1971



If you’re up on your Dick’s Picks releases—and we know you are—you’ll recall that Dick’s Picks 35, released in 2005, featured some smokin’ performances from the summer of 1971. The master reels from which it was culled, long believed to have been lost, had turned up miraculously on a houseboat owned by the parents of former GD keyboardist Keith Godchaux, discovered more than 30 years later by Keith’s brother, Brian, and son, Zion. And Keith had these masters because the band wanted him to be able to hear their most recent tour in preparation for his taking the piano seat that fall. It was quite a find, to say the least—the Grateful Dead world equivalent of uncovering a new royal tomb in the Valley of the Kings.

So imagine our surprise when two years later, under completely different circumstances, even more great, previously uncirculated master tapes from the summer of ’71 turned up unexpectedly. Surely that was a sign, too, that this music needed to come out and be shared with all of you. Which brings us, happily, to Road Trips Volume One, Number 3. This release offers up the brightest of these recently discovered gems: Disc One is taken from the famous show at the Yale Bowl in New Haven, Connecticut, July 31, 1971, anchored around an out-of-this-world “Dark Star” and a version of “Not Fade Away > Goin’ Down the Road” that also includes a short “Darkness, Darkness” jam. Hot stuff!

The material on Disc Two is from the Auditorium Theatre in Chicago about three weeks later—8/23/71 (the following night, 8/24, was spotlighted on DP35)—and its big highlight is probably the very jammed out version of “That’s It for the Other One,” which in my humble opinion stands with the best they ever played (yes, even ones from the Fillmore West box). Spread across the discs you’ll also find outstanding versions of “China Cat > Rider,” “Uncle John’s Band > Johnny B. Goode,” “Wharf Rat,” “Sugar Magnolia” and lots more. Like the DP35 performances, these are a Phil-lover’s-delight, with massive bass on almost every track—careful if you’re driving or operating heavy machinery when you crank up these CDs!

As is customary, too, for the proverbial “limited time only,” when you buy Road Trips #3, you’ll also receive a bonus disc with still more rarities from that ’71 tour. Check it out: The first few newly unearthed tracks are more from the 8/6/71 Hollywood Palladium show (featured on DP35), including the justifiably legendary, consensus-best-ever version of “Hard to Handle,” heard in pristine soundboard form for the first time. It will knock your tie-dye socks off! There are also more fine tracks from Yale Bowl, but the heart of this disc was plucked from the 8/4/71 show at Terminal Island correctional facility in Southern California, where Grateful Dead sound guru Owsley Stanley was incarcerated at the time. This show doesn’t even circulate as an audience recording! (What—a venue the tapers couldn’t crack? No way!) We think you’ll agree that all of this is GD of the highest order! As usual, these master soundboard recordings have been mastered in HDCD, and each package includes a cool booklet with an essay about the music (by yours truly in this case) and plenty o’ rare photos from the period.





The third installment in our new Road Trips series features smokin' tracks from the summer tour of 1971, including highlights from shows in New Haven and Chicago.

Road Trips Vol. 1 No. 3 includes...

- Two full CD's, lovingly compiled and painstakingly mastered (in HDCD) by Jeffrey Norman

- A booklet boasting scads of great photos and an essay by Dead scholar Blair Jackson

- As always, early orders of Road Trips will also include a special limited-edition Bonus Disc with additional music from the Summer '71 tour. This one features the legendary, consensus-best-ever version of "Hard to Handle" from 8/6/71, as well as a rare recording of a show at Terminal Island Correctional Facility in Santa Ana, California (where sound guru Owsley "Bear" Stanley was incarcerated at the time).

Man, that bonus disc, with a soundboard version of the 8/6/71 "Hard to Handle" has got me REALLY excited. This is fantastic!

It's amazing how these guys get it while the Brothers rarely release live shows.

I looks great but after shelling out for the Winterland Box a few months ago I'll have to pass on this one...for now.

How did you get it a couple weeks ago. Are they posting these on the website before they send the emails out? Did you get the bonus disc?

Wow. Hey, thanks that is the quickest response I've ever gotten on anything! Thanks.

I guess, I should check the website more often and not just wait to get their emails, I would have loved to have ordered this sooner... Thanks! Paul.

I know the ABB have publishing issues to deal with on some things but seriously it would be nice to get more archival releases.

There has not been a single Dickey/Warren release and there are so many good shows that are only circulating as lousy audiences. Would love to a mint copy of Paris or Merriwther 91. Some of the 94 Beacon shows would also be nice.

That '71 Palladium show is a MONSTER. I've had an audience tape for a while. If they have discoverd a good soundboard, it is their duty as Americans to put out the whole thing

Until then, that '71 compilation sounds pretty good. I've always heard good things about that Dark Star from the Yale Bowl show.

And if you've read this far, go to www.archive.org and check out the 6/24/70 show from the Capitol Theater in Port Chester. It's just the second set, but it cooks! Jerry comes out at the beginning of the set and exuberantly says "Let's jam!" and they do! This is the best version of "Easy Wind" I've ever heard, extra funky, and check this out...

Dark Star>
Attics of My Life>
Dark Star>
Sugar Magnolia>
Dark Star>
St Stephen>
China Cat Sunflower>
I Know You Rider

Oh yeah! Check out the little "Mountain Jam" tease when they are warming up too...

Archive.org has turned me on to many soundboard Dead shows that must not get mentioned because they're either rare or incomplete, but are better than some of the classics that are considered best.

I have to check out that "Easy Wind". The 5/15/70 version has always tore me up!

I hear you PauliG, the Archive is a tremendous resource. I've been a Deadhead for 20 years, and in the year or so since I got hip to the Archive, I've listened to more quality live Dead than I did in the previous 20 years combined.

Here's another tip--there is a great recording of the second set of the 3/29/90 show with Branford Marsalis up on Archive right now. This is the show with the famous "Eyes of the World" that was on Without A Net. The whole set is fantastic, arguably the high point of Brent's time in the band.

Go download it now! Branford is the man

Yeah, I used to have that show! Excellent show. Branford is incredible.

Just listened to 6/24/70... Awesome, that "Easy Wind" was cool, I don't think I ever heard it segued out of something else before... Thanks for the tip.

'71 is my favourite Dead year, and Yale Bowl was the one I really, REALLY wanted to hear in SBD (the circulating aud is a little rough in spots) - so basically, this release was tailor-made for me!

Postage to the UK was cheap and extraordinarily quick (5 calendar days marking a new record in US>UK post ) and it sounds... just wonderful. Heavy on the jams (the Yale Dark Star, the Chicago Other One, the stunning set 1 material from Hollywood & the rip-roaring showcloser on Terminal Island are all amazing), there just isn't a wasted note on the set.

If you don't have it, and you've got the cash, buy it now!
