I'd say April '71 is about the tail end of what's considered "primal dead" era. TC is no longer in the band (although he actually guests on some tunes here), Pig of course still is, and the Godchauxs hadn't joined yet. Still a lot of that "primal Dead" sound throughout, but '71 introduced a lot of new songs in addition to the Workingman's/American Beauty songs, which began to take them in a newer direction. That, and then the Godchauxs joining later in '71, was the end of primal dead. This run of shows is kinda right in the wheelhouse of a great crossroads for them.

And yeah the sound quality is great, especially for a recording from 1971. We're so fortunate that they had the smarts to multi-track record great shows like this way back then.

Glad you're digging it. It's definitely a "desert island" type release for me.

Never-before-heard complete 80 minute acoustic set
Last 6 tracks are Pigpen solo acoustic guitar and vocal
Tapes recently discovered by Mountain Girl in Jerry's personal collection
Incognito Grateful Dead show originally billed as Mickey Hart and His Heartbeats and Bobby Ace and His Cards from the Bottom of the Deck
Super cool to get a never before heard show from Jerry's collection. '70 is one of my favorite years, and to have Pigpen solo guitar on this is incredible. Feb 70 Fillmore East comes to mind but I can't think of much else in the way of live Pig solo guitar. When the band met Pig he played mostly guitar, organ was sort of forced on him, so this is a rare glimpse into the early days.

I have a wedding to attend on Black Friday and don't know if I'll be able to get this myself so if you see an extra grab it!

Hey Frank.

Yeah, that's already out and around on CD/FLAC. Solo acoustic Pig is great of course. I listened to some of it last night, though, and the sound quality is pretty shitty.

After my initial complete listen of the April '71 compilation...

This is most DEFINITELY a deserted-island must-have.

Also, I'm not familiar enough to know the different eras in detail when it comes to personnel, but this release makes me think that Kreutzmann is a better talent than Mickey is... Perhaps I just prefer this style more, but he sounds WAY locked in on all of these tracks.

And I do recognize the 'perfect blending' of material between the older stuff I've heard on the Fillmore '69 release and the more often-played later tunes seen on the Europe '72 release... can't ask for much more. I think I favor the 'Primal' stuff more, even the way they play the 'newer' songs of the time is different from the way they developed them in later years, which I prefer. This shit is gold.

This is why you have to listen to me, man

And yeah, I totally agree about Billy. I've said it elsewhere earlier in this thread, but I don't think it's a coincidence that he was the only drummer during what is generally my favorite era of band ('71-73), and his playing is certainly a reason the Europe '72 tour was so special.

Earliest known JGB footage surfaces

4/2/76
[Only registered users can see links.]


The Capitol has been the source of Dead/Jerry footage in the past. Seems film was being shot there as early as '75. Fingers crossed 4/5/75 LOM surfaces one day...

The 3/17/78 Capitol that surfaced a few months ago for those that missed it: [Only registered users can see links.]

So apparently you're supposed to look at this 'Live Acoustic' cover with 3-D glasses on...

My One From the Vault vinyl came in the mail today. Looking forward to that. The original release is one of the best mixed Dead releases out there. Maybe THE best. Interested to hear how the remaster came out.

Anyone listen to Dave Picks 8 yet? Listened a bit today. The first ever Dead matrix release? Originally, Jeffrey Norman intended only to use the AUD as a patch but after downloading the matrix online he decided he could create something better and actually left the two sources slightly out of sync to create the sonics he wanted.

I know nothing about the Dead but downloaded their live Europe album after reading through this thread.

I've also browsed a bunch of their shows on YouTube. I'm addicted to Eyes of the World with Branford Marsalis on sax.

Was browsing around to see if that show was released, but no luck. It's amazing how Marsalis complements the rest of the band. Was that his only guest appearance?

Like Frank said, that Eyes with Branford is on Without a Net, which is a great taste of '89-'90 era Dead.

This Eyes of the World with Marsalis is life changing.

Ok, maybe not that dramatic, but I've lost count how many times I've played it. What a fuckin' jam.

So what's the best time period to delve into? I'm liking the late 80's early 90's sound so far. I've read around that the band found new life around this time period and were a little more energetic?

Well I'm quite young in my education with these guys as well, but quickly getting heavy into it.

The funny thing is that I haven't even touched the late 80s - 90s era as of yet.

I've been stuck with a lot of the early 70s era and have been working my way up through the great 77-78 years. I intend to jump into the era you are referring to here soon, my next purchase will be one of the two, 'Without A Net' or 'Spring 90'. Opposite your experience so far, my launch pad was the Europe 72 release, for the most part.

If you like the sax sound, from what I can tell so far, you might like Jerry Garcia's side project called 'Legion of Mary'. GarciaLive Volume 3 was released here recently which features a show from 74(?) I think... can't remember off the top of my head. But these were some funky guys, lots of sax.

The Dead was at their best, by far, in the 70's (although some would even argue late 60's). '89-'90 was the best period post-'78, IMO. Don't waste your time listening to anything later than September '91. Like I said though, 70's Dead is really where it's at. And yeah, Europe '72 is a great place to start (and the newer Volume 2). If you back-read a few months here, you'll see all my recommendations for drummer, so I'd of course recommend the same stuff for you. Definitely report back while you're listening, and don't be shy with the questions
