Well-knew existed for years & years - but none of us well, most-all of us! For & from all of the Grateful Dead " Historians " out there. Grateful Dead Historians out-there & Everywhere! I mean - " What " a Pull... Incredible-installment right here, for certain...
Delivered in the form of " Dave's Picks 24 ". I mean for lack of a better way to " sugar coat it " - this one comes down to the' real' brass tacks -- as only the Hardcore! Deadheads out there will truly know the rarity, history & anthology on this one.
This is really a 1972 Dead Show that we pretty much all' accepted' we would never-ever hear. And, to take this even Furthur! - we didn't even realistically know the Set List!It's in this Spirit! That I shall do my best here, to share the nitty gritty on this one - as I have indeed been one of those who was pretty much all but convinced that this Show would simply never make it to our collective ears, minds & music loving souls! I've been on this one since the Late-'80's myself, but I will say... In the end of the 1990's Era - there actually seemed to be a glimmer of' Hope'! But, honestly - only a little bit -- but, you know...
Better than none at all. Dead Base itself never had the Set List for this one, outside of the first 6 or so songs - from the 1st Set. And, this went on as pretty much " The Case " for all Dead Fans throughout the'80's &'90's Era - until, those fine early days of DAT circulating somewhat frequently.
As then, all of a sudden - out of nowhere, it seemed... A 45-minute Reel-to-Reel straight transfer starts circulating on DAT tapes?
I couldn't track or trace the source in an effort to see if the rest of the Show existed, naturally... Not a single peep about it - for like... But, my oh my - did it sound good - like A+ Good Grate! - so, I was forever hopeful - naturally... But, the simple reality was - that the wishful " Magic Moment " never did happen.
And, one might certainly & rightfully ask... What's the Big-Deal about this 8/25/72 BCT Show? So, at least for me --- here is my own answer >>> 1. It is the Show Right-Before!
" the 8/27/72 Veneta, Oregon " Field Trip! It's the' Last-Show' of a 4-Show stand at the B.
(8/21/72 > 8/22/72 > 8/24/72 > 8/25/72) - and... It's the only one " Missing "! It's the 1st run of Shows in California! During the Pigpen > Donna transition.It's the California / Bay Area " Homecoming " run of Shows at the B. It's at the B.
And I always love-me some Berkeley stuff! -- as it's a place I once called home, for a very short - but sweet little while. It's a " Missing " Grateful Dead Show!!! Here we are in 2017!
>>> The Whole Darn 8/25/1972 B. And, last but most-definitely not least >>> Truckin'!Is 2017 my' Lucky-Year' or something?? I don't know for certain, but I'm sure Feelin' It! -- I just got 1/22/78 Mac Court Eugene Oregon!!!!! & now I get This-One too??
/1972 from the Good Ol' B. Two of my Good Ol' stompin' grounds, and a couple of places too which I once called Home!!
2017 is starting to feel Just Like Home! Dang, and for the' Record' - a Tremendous!
Piece' of the Grateful Dead Live-Recordings Puzzle was sure put in place, with this one... Oh yeah, and how could I almost forget..
