" Dave's Picks 26 " 1971! Dead Show' Ever' in New Mexico!! - in addition to the Legendary! A 1971 Grateful Dead Fan " Dream-Set " release! Live-Dead stands from the Attack-Heavy!
71 Fall / Winter Tour!!! If you didn't consider Late-1971 G. A " Prime / Peak " Era ever-before? " With (12/14/71 NM) & Without (11/17/71 NM) Pigpen " - All in One'71 Live-Dead Set!
1971 Fall / Winter Tour LIVE-DEAD!!! - and just like Pigpen himself used to so well say...
It's All You Need!! After giving this " Dave's Picks 26 " a deeply-attentive Headphones-Only! And, quite frankly - it feels like a re-kindled Love-Affair with'71 Grateful Dead!!! These Shows are just So... I mean, you know -' Filthy' in a...Just the way this Set was done - is just so-so Cool! -- 11/17/71 in Albuquerque, New Mexico! 12/14/71 at the University of Michigan (' With' Pigpen).
So, this really forces you to hear the 1971 Before & After! - or, should I more properly say... While Pigpen wasn't with the Band (for the obvious health-related reasons) during the 11/17 New Mexico Show - he then rejoined them by the time the 12/14 U. Of M - Hill Auditorium Show arrives! For really' Historical' purpose & Enjoyment!- you get to hear the Rip-Roarin'!! Late-'71 Grateful Dead unit playing " With & Without " " Without & With "! Pigpen all within the Same! As I like to call it myself - the " Keith-Fresh " Grateful Dead Era!
Or, as I guess you could also call-it the... Donna herself actually' cornered' Jerry in Early-1971 to " Tell-Him " that Keith! Was " The Man " - and with Live throw-downs like these? Just thinking back here for a second - can you kindly " Zone-In " to how the 11/14/71 TCU! Way back in like 2010 - when Those!
- well, here you have it - really... For lack of any really better way of saying it. " to how Your-Jaw was " Dropped!!
When you listened to Disc 2 of the 11/15 Austin Show? Well, better get ready to put Your-Jaw back-down-there... Of this brand of - ahhh... - with Phil Lesh showing no fear at all to play along...And too, let's not forget either... And yep, you bet - as a 28-Year Old! Garcia sure doesn't mind That! Seriously, as these are like Fender Strat Guitar Clinics!! - very different, than say a Jimi Clinic!
But, in so-many-ways - just Equally-Important! It is like you are Reading!
It just so-feels like you are part of it - while it also feels like no one can steer it? -- it's just Playin' In the Band!!! And too - let's keep in mind as well that This! Show right-here is the 1st!And, on the flip-side - it's only something like the " 10th " Dead Show in Michigan. That's a pretty-big difference & especially in 1971! For a San Francisco, California!
The Dead only ever played 5-Show Ever! In New Mexico, with this 11/17/71 Show obviously being the 1st! And, just for fun too - here are the' only' others... And 10/17/82, 9/10/83 & 9/11/83 at the Downs of Santa Fe!
Caught this November 17, 1971 Albuquerque! Show - then go ahead & I'll wait... While you " Pat Yourself On The Back " - Right-Now!! And, as far as the Hill Auditorium - Ann Arbor Show goes...
Just take a second now - and I'll bet you can... I mean let's be serious, after all - as nearly Every! Cartooney - Crazy - & Killer!! And, as for the " Sound " on these?? Well, while we've all heard the " Ann Arbor " Show in some " Moderately-Decent + Form " & especially once the DAT Era!
But, as for the 11/17 " Albuquerque " Show? Now That-One was just-about Nowhere!I mean I heard it " Once " in my whole-life prior to this DP # 26 - and the Sound-Quality on the tape I had? Well, it was like " 2-Thumbs-Down " - just one of those For Historical' Listening' Purposes - Only! And this Dave's Picks 26 Version!
- is an " Entirely-Different " Ball-Of-Wax! " 1971 " on these Sets - and reading them... It hardly-even tells you a Thing! - other than things like... Oh Look - they played Run Rudolph Run!
Because as pretty-much every Grate! Dead fan well-knows - in This! Era - reading Sets usually does no-good. You've just gotta go " Old School " - Roll Up Your Sleeves! - Lean Back in Your Easy Chair!TRACK LISTING >>> Recorded' Live' at the Albuquerque Civic Auditorium in Albuquerque, New Mexico (NM) on November 17, 1971 (11/17/1971) + University of Michigan - Hill Auditorium in Ann Arbor, Michigan (MI) on December 14, 1971 (12/14/1971) : Disc 1 : Albuquerque Civic Auditorium - Albuquerque, New Mexico (NM) - November 17, 1971 (11/17/1971) >>> Truckin' Sugaree Beat It On Down The Line Tennessee Jed El Paso Big Railroad Blues Jack Straw Deal Playing In The Band Cumberland Blues Me & Bobby McGee You Win Again Mexicali Blues Casey Jones Disc 2 : Albuquerque Civic Auditorium - Albuquerque, New Mexico (NM) - November 17, 1971 (11/17/1971) >>> One More Saturday Night Ramble On Rose Sugar Magnolia Cryptical Envelopment > Drums > The Other One > Me & My Uncle > The Other One > Wharf Rat Not Fade Away > Goin' Down The Road Feeling Bad > Not Fade Away Disc 3 : University of Michigan - Hill Auditorium - Ann Arbor, MI - December 14, 1971 (12/14/1971) >>> Truckin' Sugaree Mr. Charlie Beat It On Down The Line Loser Next Time You See Me El Paso Big Railroad Blues Me & My Uncle Run Rudolph Run Big Boss Man You Win Again Not Fade Away > Goin' Down The Road Feeling Bad > Not Fade Away Dave's Picks 2018 Bonus Disc CD (Disc 4 / " Bonus Disc CD ") / University of Michigan - Hill Auditorium - Ann Arbor, Michigan (MI) - December 14, 1971 (12/14/1971) : University of Michigan - Hill Auditorium - Ann Arbor, MI - December 14, 1971 (12/14/1971) >>> Jack Straw Tennessee Jed Black Peter Playing In The Band Casey Jones Mexicali Blues Cryptical Envelopment > Drums > The Other One > Wharf Rat Sugar Magnolia Item Condition : This Rare!
