Grateful Dead : Dave's Picks 21 Volume Twenty One : April 2, 1973 (4/2/1973) - Boston Garden - Boston, Massachusetts (MA) : 3 CD : 2017 (1973/2017) Grateful Dead Productions, Inc. / Rhino (GDP / Rhino) : Limited Edition' Individually-Numbered Set' Limited Edition (of # 16500) : Very-Rare!
- from the Good Ol' Boston Garden!!! Thirty-Four (34) Tracks of Straight-Up'73 G. And, more importantly - the Very-First! Taste' of " Spring " Tour'73...
Seen Pro-released from that Oh, So-Precious... Time to' Reel' Your Face! I mean - better get out Your-Headphones!& don't just stand there Dreamin'!! So, I have indeed just freshly-indulged in This-One! And, with digital remastering of this quality - quite frankly... I feel as if I have just had a' similar' experience to listening to Stanford - Maples Pavillion'73 for the Very-1st! 2/9/73 - was the show for me among many-others, obviously...
, when I first found the Good Ol' Grateful Dead. I acquired it in like the 1st traded batch of like 25-ish analog cassettes, and I just could not stop playing it... In the stereo, car, school, work...And even in the yellow Sony Walkman! I mean you know, to properly' date' myself & all... This is a nothing-short of Amazing! Dead Show - which delivered 34-Songs Live!!! Talk about getting your Dead Ticket torn, and settling in for like a Quarter-Day... I had a tape of this Show, with two-tales of SQ - both Soundboard, but most definitely' varying' - and, to really make it a " back-shelfer "... It was only a 90-minute tape. So, I've a bit of a taste indeed, but not like this... Because I must openly admit, I don't reach for'73 (like I used to), and if I do - probably like most - I'm reaching for the Fall / Winter (& mostly' Winter') 1973 G. I'll be the first to admit that I could listen to Dick's Picks 1, Dick's Picks 14 w/ 2-Dew(s)!!
, and the 1973 Winterland Complete Recordings, etc.. and with that, I'm all good. But, honestly - this one has got me thinking seriously about going on a little Spring'73 Hunt! Because there is just so much going on. - I mean you-can't-beat-That!
With that clean &' twangy' tone -- almost like a Fender Infomercial for the advertisement of going with the Maple! I mean sure, it's Jerry - it's Silverface Twin! - and there are Mac Power Amps just Fueling up the Fire... But, when listening to This?- it feels like even the corner upper deck caverns of the the Boston Garden were chocked full of Deadheads with freshly-blown Minds! With clean-tone attack, after Clean! And too, it has to be said as well... Talk about the " Phil Zone "!!!
- as there are so-many moments where he is an equivalent string-section player with Garcia! - and the cat & mouse games that go on are just simply... As the " Cosmic Glue " is most-certainly flowin'.
Throw pretty-much " perfect " drum time-keeping in this mix too... And you've got s pretty darn Mean! A special'73 Spring Tour batch here, for sure... At the Good Ol' Boston Garden!!! Because as we all well-know...Clean-tone & timing Live Rock & Roll Perfection! As if you were Recording in a Studio! And feeling free too, to push the envelopes & musical boundaries at will, when the pockets present themselves. Just like on this 4/2/73 Show at the Good Ol' Boston Garden... Playing In The Band close to 16-minutes!
Of it - and H. There is indeed an' underrated' China > Rider! On here, and the Greatest Story! Wow, as it's making it's argument to be the'Greatest' Story!!
- and is real-bluesy, too!! - and as for China Doll??
All I can say is... You'll want to put this one in your Multi-Disc Changer... And then just leave it there for a while! And too, as I also always like to say when, appropriate...
As This-One is just That-Good, and it's just That-Clean...
