LOS ANGELES – During the Grateful Dead’s legendary 30-year run, the band often visited its northern neighbors in Portland, Seattle, and less-than-often Vancouver. This also marks the first Grateful Dead live archival boxed set to feature material across multiple years, aside from the 80-disc, career-spanning 30 Trips Around The Sun box. The concerts in the set include: P. (6/22/73); Portland Memorial Coliseum, Portland, OR (6/24/73); Seattle Center Arena, Seattle, WA (6/26/73); P. Coliseum, Vancouver, Canada (5/17/74); Portland Memorial Coliseum, Portland, OR (5/19/74); and Hec Edmundson Pavilion, University of Washington, Seattle, WA (5/21/74). Each show was mastered in HDCD from the original master tapes by Jeffrey Norman at Mockingbird Mastering. The transfers from the masters were transferred and restored by Plangent Processes, further ensuring that this is the best, most authentic that these shows have ever sounded. PACIFIC NORTHWEST’73-’74: THE COMPLETE RECORDINGS comes in an ornate box created by Canada’s preeminent First Nations artist Roy Henry Vickers. To complement the music, the set also includes a 64-page book with an in-depth essay by Grateful Dead scholar Nicholas G. Meriwether and photos by Richie Pechner. During the period when the shows were recorded, the Grateful Dead included: Jerry Garcia, Donna Jean Godchaux, Keith Godchaux, Bill Kreutzmann, Phil Lesh and Bob Weir. The recordings of the 1973 shows were made just a few months before the band released its sixth studio album, Wake of the Flood, which was its first without founding member Ron “Pigpen” McKernan, who died in March 1973, and the first on their new Grateful Dead Records label. Along with live staples like “Jack Straw, ” “Sugaree” and “Brown-Eyed Women, ” the band also previewed most of its forthcoming album, including “Eyes Of The World, ” “Row Jimmy, ” “Here Comes Sunshine, ” “Stella Blue, ” and Mississippi Half-Step Uptown Toodeloo. The 1974 shows were recorded just a few weeks before the band released its seventh studio album, From The Mars Hotel. The band once again took the opportunity to preview songs from its upcoming album, with performances of U. ” Another song from the album – “Scarlet Begonias” – was played on its own, three years before it would be linked with “Fire On The Mountain in 1977. In addition to mixing newer and older songs at all six shows, the band also slipped in a few rarities along way, like Donna Jean’s cover of Loretta Lynn’s “You Ain’t Woman Enough (To Take My Man), ” the George Jones’ classic “The Race Is On, ” and the blues standard Nobody’s Fault But Mine. ” The collection also features two performances of the entire “Weather Report Suite. ” Soon after these shows, the song’s “Prelude” and “Part I” were dropped for good, leaving behind only the final third of the composition, “Let It Grow, which would continue to be part of the band’s live shows until 1995.
