From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Dave's Picks Volume 1 is a three-CD live album by the band the Grateful Dead.It was recorded on May 25, 1977, at the Mosque. And contains the complete concert from that date. It was released on February 1, 2012. The album is the first in the Dave's Picks series of Grateful Dead archival releases, the successor to the Road Trips series. It is a limited edition of 12,000 individually numbered copies. The cover art, by Scott McDougall, depicts the hands of two skeletons in outer space, with clashing drumsticks that resemble lightsabers. This is a nod to the film Star Wars. Which was released the same date that the concert was recorded. Doug Collette wrote, Though its graphic design and packaging is markedly different than its immediate predecessor of Grateful Dead archive releases, the initial release in Dave's Picks follows proudly in the tradition of the recently concluded Road Trips (as well as the original series to which this one's title refers, Dick's Picks). Chief archivist and co-producer of the previous line, as well as the most recent one-off Grateful Dead titles such as Europe'72 Volume 2. The legacy of this iconic band is in the most capable of hands.... The set list is a blueprint for the slow but sure expansion of the musicianship from tight ensemble work ("Mississippi Half Step Uptown Toodleoo"), slightly looser interplay ("They Love Each Other"), the initial group jams apart from solos ("Lazy Lightning" > "Supplication") and the segue that opens them up full-throttle toward "Drums" Scarlet Begonias.
" > " Fire on the Mountain. Dave's Picks Volume 1 is an audacious but appropriate inauguration for this archive series. It sets the bar high, but that should only insure subsequent releases match the standards the Grateful Dead set for itself.
Said, Most Deadheads, regardless of when they came on board, have a favorite era or specific year, and for many, 1977 is high on the list. Refreshed from a year-plus-long hiatus, and with drummer Mickey Hart. Now back in the band after his own extended layoff, the Grateful Dead was tight and rejuvenated. This May show from Virginia is a slow-builder, picking up steam midway through the first set with Bob Weir's."Loser" and never looking back. The band interplay in the "Lazy Lightning" > "Supplication" jam that follows is where the album kicks into high gear, but its the second set that's the keeper... As quintessentially delicious as the playing is in Richmond, the true highlights are Garcia and Weirs vocal performances; both were singing with a newly discovered care for nuance that served the music supremely well. Judging by this first release in David Lemieuxs new series, Dave's Picks will be a worthy successor to the vaunted Dick's Picks series.
