Featuring Previously Unreleased Never Before Heard! Recently in 2012 - from both 12/20/69 & 2/2/70!! Dead Fans fall in right here... And, as for all the 1969-70 era Dead Fans out there? This here release is Just! And is without-question one of those that you've been waiting for a long, long, very-long time. Not only is this Immaculate G. With at times - Pure-Live-Perfection!! - but there is also indeed " quite the story " and then some... Does anyone remember the " Houseboat Tapes " story?
And their " Return " to the Vault via Keith (via' Houseboat' storage for decades) > Donna > Back! Sure you do, and if you don't? Read up for certain - or, just let Dick's Picks #35 do all the talkin' for you!Ahhhh yes, yet another " Return " of reels to that so precious G. Vault - and just like Supertramp once said - these took the " Long Way Home "!! Originally recorded at the Fillmore in'69 (12/20/69) and at the Fox Theatre St.
They then traveled & lived well, who knows exactly where - eventually landing in New Jersey, and from there to North Carolina... Then from there back to the Vault finally!This being the 1st in a long-while? At least' significant' return of material to it's home - just how glad these reels were to be housed against their friends... Lots to talk about, right? Wow is right, as this is the 1st major " find & return " in the last 7-years! And it really makes you wonder how many more times it will ever really happen? Who knows, but I'm just so incredibly glad when it happens. Watch out fellow fans - as there are some serious chunks of magic to behold on these CD's. Once again, the remastering process appears to be near exceptional, as these reels must have been fortunate enough to sustain & survive well! This beauty jumps right out of the trunk / box /bag?? With a kickin' Casey Jones! Then Hard to Handle even shows a little Jerry/Pigpen off-timing that made me smile!
More so just to pleasantly remind me that I might not have ever been able to hear it - so very Grateful! Then the backside of Disc 1 gets thick!! Cumberland, Dark Star a new one to most all of us - Hurrah!! Stephen > Mason's Children - Good Lovin' > Uncle Johns Band -- and a noteworthy U.My personal favorite on this set - because it is just so darn groovy & brilliant! Lovelight > Not Fade Away > Lovelight! -- followed by yes, a just about celestial G. Then on to 12/20/69 - a date that's never been able to come clean in your Dead Base! Dark Star another' new' one!! Well, there is indeed a Moment-of-Magic! Right here that sends sheer chills up the spine of this here humble G. Fan - but, as I like to say... I don't want to spoil the soup!
But just look at this - and yes, you Cannot! Wait to hear it - trust me here...
Lovelight - Mason's Children - China > Rider - High Time - Me & My Uncle - Hard to Handle - and Cumberland Blues - 12/20/69 Fillmore on this particular hot-hot smoldering'69 chunk. And just to think that you get two (2) long-lost soon-to-be-friend-of-yours in this release. So yes, this is definitely one to behold - for all reasons obvious. Thanks to Eric, Janet & Brett! - as 2013 feels better then ever fellow-fans, just right about now...
