Grateful Dead - Dick's Picks 35

This four-CD set includes the band's complete performance on August 7, 1971 in San Diego, the material that was salvageable from its August 24, 1971 concert in Chicago, and an hour-long segment from its August 6, 1971 concert at the Hollywood Bowl.

Intriguingly, none of this material ever has been in circulation among Dead Heads, and the soundboard recordings of the Grateful Dead's 1971 summer tour were thought to have been lost forever. However, this past spring, archivist David Lemieux received a call from Donna Jean Godchaux-Mackay, who told him that the tapes had been discovered. Evidently, just prior to Keith Godchaux's indoctrination into the Grateful Dead had begun, guitarist Jerry Garcia had given him a box of tapes and said, "Here, this is our most recent tour. Learn our music." Keith stashed the tapes on his parent's houseboat in Alameda and promptly forgot about them. They remained there for 35 years until they were discovered by his brother Brian and his son Zion.
