Final Road Trips Relase - Boston Music Hall 1976

#70926 2 years, 11 months ago
from dead.net; You can listen to the Cassidy, Scarlet and High Time here www.dead.net/listeningparty-v4n5?eml=dn/.../listeningpartyimage


edit: there is a kind eyes of the world streaming too, I have to see if that is instead of high time or in addition.


From Dead.net:
1976 was a pivotal year for the Grateful Dead. After an 18-month hiatus that saw just four Bay Area appearances by the band, but also a phenomenal studio album, Blues for Allah, and a slew of solo projects, the Dead returned to the road at the beginning of June '76. Mickey Hart was officially back in the fold after a long absence, and the band came back with a batch of new songs and fresh approaches to playing their old ones. It was the summer of America's much-ballyhooed bicentennial, the country was still going through Watergate withdrawal, and we needed our Grateful Dead back!

This latest - and last (more on that here) - edition of our Road Trips series, Vol. 4 No. 5, was drawn from two shows early on what was dubbed by many Heads at the time as the Dead's "comeback" tour. It contains the truly awe-inspiring complete June 9, 1976 Boston Music Hall show (just the third of the tour, but you'd never guess that), and also a handful of hot tracks from the June 12 show at the same venue. For a band that hadn't played together in eons, the Dead sound remarkably self-assured and on-the-ball throughout.

As with all the previous Road Trips releases, this final entry comes with a colorful booklet containing an essay and period photos. And needless to say, it has been mastered to HDCD specs by Jeffrey Norman.
FFF! Family is Forever!!!

May God bless and keep you always
May your wishes all come true
May you always do for others
And let others do for you

Shame to see the Road Trips series end. I liked it.

The Road Trips series is over, but they will be introducing a new Series of CD's. Why retire a cow that still has lots of milk to give.

I bought the subscription last year. I'm basically interested in whatever they want to put out. Also like that Jam Of The Week feature.
