    GRATEFUL DEAD: DICK’S PICKS VOL. 14

  • Dick’s Picks 14 Presents an Unusually Stripped-Down Version of the Grateful Dead without Mickey Hart or Donna Godchaux

  • Includes an Unprecedented “MorningDew” Show Opener and Final Encore

    ORDER NOW! 


    GRATEFUL DEAD: Dick’s Picks Vol. 14—Boston Music Hall 11/30/73 & 12/2/73 (4-CD Set)

    This is one of the more unusual volumes in the entire Dick’s Picks series, both with respect to band configuration—neither Mickey Hart nor Donna Godchaux (who was off tour having a baby) are here—and the circumstances of the recording, as the first disc begins with a version of “Morning Dew” that had to serve as both a show opener and a sound check because the band was three hours late arriving for the gig! Interestingly, the last disc ends with an encore of  “Morning Dew” (in a particularly spectacular version) too, and one imagines archivist Dick Latvala chuckling over that symmetry as he put together this 4-CD set, which compiles highlights from two nights of a three-night stand at Boston Music Hall.
