73 3-CD Set release (of # 13,000) : Brand New / Factory Sealed : Out of Print!! 1973 Grateful Dead performance (11/17/1973) at UCLA Basketball's one & only Pauley Pavilion!!' Home-Court' of both the Legendary!& The " Wizard of Westwood "!!!! The decision was made to let 11/17/73 UCLA / Pauley Pavilion out of its cage! So long over due - so long... But hey, who cares now, as it's all Smiles!
This Show is just Massive!! And if you've been listening to Bill Walton's commentary during Hoops Games recently - in the Pac-12!
He has just been goin' Nuts! About the Band the last few years! Heck, I tune in to just to hear Bill! He passed that ball like he must have seen Ken Kesey in the Corner!A 2 minute+ dialogue on taking the whole Law School class to the'83 Frost Shows, and still doing well on the test the next day! During the Arizona Game -- Wow! Just a relentless speech about the'69 Tucson Shows! Reciting a portion of the set, with St. With a massive lay-down to Jerry Garcia and the Mission in the Rain!!
And possibly the best comment of all may have been during the Ducks v. Stanford game when they are commenting on the floor in Maples moving, and Bill goes on a rampage about the 2/9/73 show in Palo Alto referring to the sound in the gym as The Flesh Eating Low-End of the John L.
Fellow Fans, and when you pop in this 11/17/73 release you will see just why! This DP #5 release is the very-best release from this series by far... At least to my ears - by a long-shot. Almost like a tournament buzzer-beater when it's all on the line All!When I finally acquired the analog cassettes from this show as a kid, I quickly considered them treasures. The fact at hand is very simple..... The " re-entry " segue transition from Morning Dew > back into! Uncle John's Band is without any question one of the most heralded seamless! Transitions that the Band has ever-played live.
And the other fact is, this one happened on Fall Tour'73 where some of the best segue-transitions of all time occurred, so for me (& many) to rank it this high... Is indeed a tall-claim, that is 100% backed & supported when you pop in Disc 2. I believe in my heart of hearts that this is a candidate for one of the hottest & most creative live segue/transitions ever - and without question, it's a " Top 10 ". The Band is beyond-tight right out of the gate in this show, and you can tell it's an " On " night just about 1/3 of the way through H. Sunshine, which is only the 2nd song played!The Race Is On cooks... And is then followed by a super-tight China > Rider where Garcia is all over every single jam-loop theme five, I believe? Then between Big River & Brown Eyed Women... Phil challenges the Fire Marshall for being too " chicken " to speak directly to the fans about being out of their seats! Then Disc 2 is where the G.
Followed by a well tempo-ed & up-beat! String of Row Jimmy, Jack Straw, and Ramble On Rose...
Then " It " arrives = Playin' > Uncle John's > Morning Dew >!!!!! > Uncle John's > Playin'!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Nobody has any chance of following-up this concrete moment of magic in Rock'n Roll History, not even the'73 Grateful Dead themselves - but they sure do give it a whirl... A beautiful Stella Blue, and a slick El Paso, followed by a once again air-tight finish... To the " Wizard Of Westwood " - and you too Bill!!! Keep up the " Kind " Dead words, as We already Love It! - and maybe " They " will learn to love it some more too.
Either way, they are going to have to live with it - it's Good for them, and they don't even know it... This release is not only Fantastic - it is simply Legendary! DP #5 11/17/73 UCLA = Treasure and then some...

Please Note : A small Limited Edition number (of 13,000) was decided on for each Volume of' Year Two' in this relatively new " Dave's Picks " Series.

So it's now out of print for good, and no more will be manufactured for sale.
