Pre-Hiatus (1974) release that just had-to be' unleashed' from that so-very precious G. And now, it has Been!! I mean I'm not sure what to even say here about this Historically-Significant! Show - that hasn't already been said by someone or heard! - at least at some point...
Over the last close to 45-Years! As the Music at this'74 Dead Show - does way-more then indeed speak for itself! The China > Rider - Playin' - Cumberland - Weather Report Suite > Row Jimmy! - Sugar Mag > NFA > GDTRFB > NFA... And last but most-definitely not least -- the Dark Star!!!
Noteworthy versions that are truly' up-there' in the best of the best conversations in all of Grateful Dead History! If you haven't ever heard this Show? Wow, as by all means - do-you-ever Need To!! So, as all of that speaks for itself completely... , this is what I can say about this 2/24/74 Show - in regard to the audio-quality - and the accessibility standpoint - from the history of the G.
This was a Show that was widely-accessible in the 1980's - and likely prior to that too - and, the sound quality was always just not quite there - on so-many of the versions that I personally encountered. Point being - once you could lasso this Show in the B+ / A- S. Range - you pretty much just considered yourself lucky - and would need to swiftly move on. I know myself - because I spent years & years trading around for this one - though all of my go-to G.And - it was like almost knowing that you would be soon headed back to square-one! But then, in the Mid-'90's? Changed - and for, the Very-Best! As this 2/24/74 Show was one of the widely trading & extremely-accessible Pre-Hiatus G. Shows from the origin of the " DAT " Era!!! I mean let me put it this way...
I got my hands on an Completely-Amazing!!! Version of this Show - Complete! On 300 DAT tape - right around 1996 / 1997 as I very clearly remember - and from that point on... In fact, I even at one point' transferred' this DAT version to Analog!
- just, so I could listen to it through a Nak! I mean hey, I could use the JBL's either way - but this was a good recipe to undergo...Transferring Digital - to Analog! And then sure, all of your Dead Fan Friends would make fun of you, since DAT was so-cool - in it's state of the art era.
And Frankly, this Show is so' Worthy' of it's place in Time & Dead History... That you just can't have too many copies of it.
And, here 2015 rolls around... Digitally-Remastered in Pristine fashion - and completely-Stellar! It does sound different though (much) - in the channel separations, levels, mix, etc.
To the point that I still! Won't be parting with my DAT > Analogs! I mean I don't know what else to say here... So, I'll just say it like this -- Heaven Sent G. See, basically what the Band - and the powers that be are saying to you here is...
To listen-to - and' Own' this Magical! Early-'74 chunk of Good Ol' Grateful Dead!!! And, as you'll see & hear - there are Tons & Tons! Here is - the " Big-One " --- Dark Star!!!!! So, just remember to strap-on that Cosmic Seatbelt!
In your music-listening easy chair - so you're not' immediately' taken Straight! Before the arrival of Disc 3!!! And, hey too - come to think of it... You might seriously want to strap-on those Ice Skates too!!
