: Dave's Picks 2016 Bonus Disc!!! - at the Orpheum Theatre!! At San Francisco's Orpheum Theatre!!! - on the 1976 Summer Tour!!!!! The Post Wall Of Sound!Fully' Recharged' - and proving it in S. I mean just simply do your Historical Calendar and even Dead Base math!
On this one, and you will quickly-know just exactly where. Right on top of the Home Turf!Of the Good Ol' " New " Grateful Dead - on July 16, 1976 - at San Francisco's Beautiful! On the'76 Summer Tour - just shortly-after their Mid-'70's group " Hiatus ". And so-ready to Rock & Roll!!!
To the Gateway of yet Another! Grateful Dead " Prime Era " period -- 1976 > 1977! To deliver Live Rock & Roll!- in a brand new, and arguably even " new & improved " Live G. Some Fans even prefer'76 to'77, as most of the main points tend to deal with a little more' freshness' - set lists a little bit less settled into - and, for lack of a better way to' say it'... Just a tad more up-tempo' pop' &' punch' attack of the beats throughout 2nd Sets, and' especially' through 1st Sets. And though'77 might definitely have'76 one-upped on the " Silky-Smooth ", it also might have it a bit more on the Disco-Dead side... But, down to sheer personal opinion - it's just splitting hairs, and getting down to the real nitty gritty. Personally, I wouldn't all together " trade "'76 for'77, but... There are indeed a number of'76 Shows that do crack the'77 " Top-25 " List with ease. And, fortunately for us today - now officially 40-Years! Let out of the Vault!! -- and, I'm most certainly glad to stand behind the fact that this-run is indeed one of the few & the proud'77 " Top 25 " crackers.
Both the Boston & S. Orpheum Shows got so-much " tape trader " circulation time, back in the'80's &'90's Era...Simply because not only are these Shows so stand-out - but, also because better & better Soundboard copies continues to trickle down. All the way until the Mid/Late-'90's Era - where I personally finally found the copies that I considered The-Bomb! So, needless to say - I was all eyebrows-up when I saw that this one was going to come down the pro-release circuit pipeline in this very-special Limited Edition " Dave's Picks 2016 Bonus Disc CD " format...
With the first question I asked myself being -- Wow... Are they going to make these Shows Tapes!
What makes me the Happiest of all here - is that this question was so-solidly answered, and then some. Action from 7/16/76 freshly in your Music Collection arsenal - you can now even consider giving' staple' like releases a briefly momentary peaceful rest such as...
Cow Palace'76 - Spirit Of'76 - Dick's Picks 33 - Dave's Picks 4 - etc. Because this 7/16/76 SF Orpheum Show " Bonus Disc " segment is Absolutely... And Everyone is completely spot-on, with you-know-who Jerry.
Never even coming close to missing an up-beat, down-beat, while just consistently surfing the horizon-edge of every single attack-spot & jam-pocket like a surfer on a tidal wave. It should also be noted that where you might think there are some timing mis-communications, or musical flubs, basically... From a pure & simple lack of playing together (lately) in the holistic " Rhythm " of the Drums-meets-Base-meets-Bobby Guitar - there is really nothing " off " at all - and any Musician worth their weight in Rock & Roll will tell you straight-up...Hands-down one of the most important Grateful Dead Bonus Disc CD releases here of the Post " Hiatus " Era Late 1974 - Mid-1976 (roughly) - without any question... And coming right to You! - through your headphones, into your ears - and completely-deeply straight into your mind & soul... Or, as I should probably more-appropriately say -- channeled right-into your Dead-Head!!! Being there just must have been something-else for those fortunate enough to be inside this Summer'76 SF Orpheum Show... And, just as usual - I'm still waiting for all of these silly repairs on that Good Ol' Grateful Dead Time-Machine!
