Welcome to Season 2 of 36 from the Vault: SUMMER TOUR! In Episode 12 we explore Dick’s Picks Vol. 12, from The Stanley Theater in Jersey City, NJ on September 27, 1972. Our first 1972 show in the series - and the first of three from September ‘72 in the larger Dick’s Picks Cannon, this is one of the best full shows we’ve heard thus far. Filled with great song selections, and huge jams, this is a peek into the world of The Dead post-Europe, post-Pigpen, as they were incorporating more jazz and psychedelia into their jams, and were fully connected behind the drumming of Bill Kreutzmann. The show opens with a rare “Morning Dew.” Typically a Set II closer, its appearance here overshadows Set I with an ominous feel. Later, “Bird Song” drifts like a dream before the set ends in wild fashion with a ripping “China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider” followed by an abstract take on “Playin’ In The Band. In Set II “He’s Gon” jams in a focused & medidative style before “Dark Star” hooks up for an ethereal and breezy take on the expansive jam vehicle. Elsewhere, “Cumberland Blues” rips unexpectedly, while “Attics Of my Life” offers the emotional resolution needed following a show like this.  Steven and Rob focus on the impact of Europe & shows like Veneta on the band in 1972, and the transition they were about to go through as they moved into 1973 & 1974, two renowned years in Grateful Dead history.  36 from the Vault is production of Osiris Media.

Welcome to Season 2 of 36 From The Vault: SUMMER TOUR! In Episode 11 we explore Dick’s Picks Vol. 10, from The Winterland in San Francisco, CA on December 29 at 30, 1977. A celebratory volume that checks a lot of boxes fans had been asking for through the first ten volumes of the series. The show feels like a party at The Winterland as the nights tick off from one of the most accomplished years in their history. Featuring outstanding versions of “Jack Straw” and “Sugaree” in Set I, it also sees “Loser” make its DP Debut. In Set II, the band weaves together a suite within “Playing In The Band” before dropping their first “China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider” since 1974. Encoring with “Terrapin Station” was a special nod to the venue and the year. And as a special treat, we got a snippet from December 30, in the form of “Estimated Prophet,” a fantastic “Eyes Of The World,” “St. Stephen” and “Sugar Magnolia.” Steven and Rob focus on the aura of The Winterland, the impact of 1977 on their sound, the transition to the 1980s, the impact of bustouts on The Dead’s shows, and the greatness of Linda Ronstadt. 36 from the Vault is production of Osiris Media.

Welcome back to 36 from the Vault! In Episode 9 we explore Dick’s Picks Vol. 9, from Madison Square Garden in New York City, NY on September 16,1990. A confounding volume which sees The Grateful Dead just two months on from the loss of their beloved keyboardist, Brent Mydland. Here they’re introducing two new keyboardists to the mix - Vince Welnick & Bruce Hornsby, while still very much mourning Brent. What follows is a fascinating, albeit uneven performance which features standout performances of “Tennessee Jed,” “Looks Like Rain,” and “He’s Gone. Fusing these unique takes with odd setlist selections and weird sonic experimentations, this is one of the least revered, but strangely insightful peeks into the Dead in a period of mourning, transition, and still fantastic music. Steven and Rob focus on the transition of The Dead from their late-80’s/Spring-90 Peak to their four year descent to July 1995, the strange setlisting of this show, the benefits of compilation Dick’s Picks vs full shows, and whether or not Phil Jackson was in the crowd at the show. 36 from the Vault is production of Osiris Media.

Welcome back to 36 from the Vault! In Episode 9 we explore Dick’s Picks Vol. 8, from Harpur College in Binghamton, NY on May 2,1970. A fascinating volume which sees The Grateful Dead just four months on from their phenomenal run at Fillmore East, documented in Dick’s Picks Vol. 4. Here we see them feature their newest songs, set to be recorded for Workingman’s Dead and American Beauty, in their acoustic set, while allowing their electric set as a review of their career through the 1960s. In the acoustic set, songs like “Friend Of The Devil,” “Dire Wolf,” and “Black Peter” sound raised from the dirt. It’s a peek towards where The Dead will go in the early 70s, as many of their best songs will debut over the next three years. In the electric set, we hear the psych-rock freak-outs of the 60s on their last legs, as “Good Lovin’,” “Viola Lee Blues” and “Dancing In The Streets” showcase the best of The Dead we’re leaving behind. Historically, this may be the biggest transition we’ve heard from The Dead in the entire Dick’s Picks series. Steven and Rob focus on the decision Roberts must make with their name, the explosion of ideas between Garcia/Hunter, what The Dead would do to push themselves forward in the early 70s, and much more.  36 from the Vault is production of Osiris Media.

Welcome back to 36 from the Vault! In Episode 8 we explore Dick’s Picks Vol. 7, from the Alexandra Palace in London, ENG on September 9-11,1974. Deep in the Wall of Sound Era, we find the Dead in London for a rough tour just before their extended hiatus began, and a compilation set - the first since DP4, where Dick showcases the best of the run. Highlights abound as Phil sounds his strongest we’ve heard thus far in the series, and the band is at perhaps their jamming peak. If nothing else, you must check out the “Playing In The Band” from Disc 1, “Weather Report Suite,” “Truckin’ -> Wood Green Jam” from Disc 2, and the “Dark Star -> Spam Jam -> Morning Dew” from Disc 3. It’s a wild experience hearing a compilation that flows like a complete show, and provides a fantastic snapshot of the band on the precipice of a major transition.  Steven and Rob focus on the challenges facing the band in 1974, the looming hiatus, the experiments between Phil Lesh and Ned Langin on “Seastones,” and the dramatic shift in their sound from our last volume from the early 70s: DP4, to now. 36 from the Vault is production of Osiris Media.

Welcome back to 36 from the Vault! In Episode 7 we momentarily diverge from our trek through the larger Dick’s Picks series, to chat about the post-Jerry years. Focusing on the larger touch points between Phish & The Dead, we dive into Phish’s 1998 Island Tour, highlighting the April 3, 1998 performance from Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale, NY. A high point for Phish, they’d just reinvented themselves stylistically throughout 1997, and then booked a surprise run of shows just a few weeks prior to dive back into the Eno-inspired atmospheric funk jams they couldn’t get enough of. A true turning point in the band’s larger history, The Island Tour marks the point where the party begins to consume the band, and the darkness that’s lingering will soon consume them. A celebration & an ominous sign of what’s to come, it’s a fascinating moment in their history.  Opening with stellar jams in “Mike’s Song” and “Weekapaug Groove,”  the band later focuses on intra-band communication in “Reba.” The second, however, is the highlight of the overall show. Running just four songs, it reads: “Roses Are Free -> Piper -> Loving Cup> Run Like An Antelope.” Particualrly in the “Roses” and “Piper” the band connects with such effortlessness that they sound pre-recorded. In the encore, “Halley’s Comet” leads into the second-ever stateside “Carini” before the rare “Tweezer-less” “Tweezer Reprise” closes the show. Steven and Rob focus on the energy that guided Phish throughout the 90s, highlighting the decisions that led to their 1997 reinvention,  and how this run shifted the band towards their more modern incarnation with all its surprises and challenges. In addition, they discuss the legacy of the thoughtful groove-driven jamming that defined the era.  36 from the Vault is production of Osiris Media.

Welcome back to 36 from the Vault! In Episode 6 we explore Dick’s Picks Vol. 6, from the Hartford Civic Center in Hartford, CT on October 14, 1983. A bit of a blind spot in larger Dead History, we find the band in the middle of a successful Fall Tour, where their sound has evolved significantly since their initial peaks in the 1970s. While Set I fails to lift off in the way many initial sets had in the Dick’s Picks series thus far, the Second set is uniquely strong, featuring the first “Scarlet Begonias -> Fire On The Mountain” released yet in the series. From there, the band moves through “Estimated Prophet” before a wild and spacey “Eyes Of The World” highlights the set before moving into “Drums -> Space.” The final peak of the show comes in an emotive “Stella Blue” that set the standard for many A-late Set II 80’s comedown.  Steven and Rob focus on the static nature of the early-80’s in Dead history, discussing their relationship to popular acts of the time like Talking Heads & Dire Straits, the side projects that dominated much of this time, and the health issues that began to creep into the band.  36 from the Vault is production of Osiris Media. It is edited and produced by Brian Brinkman, and mastered by Matt Dwyer. All music composed by Amar Sastry, unless otherwise noted. Logo design by Liz Bee Art & Design.

Welcome back to 36 from the Vault! In Episode 5 we explore Dick’s Picks Vol. 5, from the Oakland Auditorium Arena in Oakland, CA on December 26, 1979. We find the Dead at yet another transitional period in their career, as they continue rolling out the Brent era. This show features a number of significant bustouts in “Uncle John’s Band” & “Brokedown Palace” while being highlighted by a phenomenal second set. Featuring an uninterrupted run of jams in “Uncle John’s Band -> Estimated Prophet -> Jam -> He’s Gone - > The Other One -> Drums -> Space -> Not Fade Away> Brokedown Palace,” it showcased the new tones and sonic approach that came with Brent Myland joining earlier that year. Steven and Rob focus on the fascinating run of shows The Dead played in the last week of the 1970’s, their transition to perhaps the fascinating & much-maligned 1980’s period, their Talking Heads jams of the era, The Dead’s appeal to pop music, and much more.  36 from the Vault is production of Osiris Media. It is edited and produced by Brian Brinkman, and mastered by Matt Dwyer. All music composed by Amar Sastry, unless otherwise noted. Logo design by Liz Bee Art & Design.

Welcome back to 36 from the Vault! In Episode 4 we explore Dick’s Picks Vol. 4, from the Fillmore East in New York City, on February 13 & 14, 1970. We find the Dead at a transitional period in their career, peaking as they move from the psychedelic madness of the 60s into the most remarkable decade of their career. This show is capstoned by a seamless chunk of music: “Dark Star -> That’s It For The Other One -> Turn On Your Lovelight.” Later, we hear a fantastic “China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider,” “Dancing In The Streets,” as well as a wild “Caution (Do Not Stop On The Tracks) -> Feedback.” Steven and Rob focus on the fascinating run of shows The Dead played in early 1970, the band’s transition to perhaps the greatest period of their career, their Sonic Youth jams of the era, Bobby’s phenomenal rhythm work and much more.  36 from the Vault is production of Osiris Media.

Welcome To 36 from the Vault! In episode 3 we explore Dick’s Picks Vol. 3. Recording at the Sportatorium in Pembroke Pines, FL, on May 22, 1977. Featuring a near complete show, we hear a “Sugaree” that’s as close to perfect as you’ll ever get, a funky “Dancing In The Street,” a “Help On The Way -> Slipknot! -> Franklin’s Tower” for the ages, and a four-song jam from “Eyes Of The World -> Wharf Rat -> Terrapin Station -> Morning Dew” that sounded like a completely different band than most expected in May 1977. Steven and Rob focus on the disco-fication of 1977 Dead, the songs that fit the era best, the importance of Phil Lesh, and the reasons why the Dead seemed to thrive in out of the way places throughout the 70’s. 36 from the Vault is production of Osiris Media.

Welcome back to 36 from the Vault! In episode 2 we explore Dick’s Picks Vol. 2. Recording at the Ohio Theater in Columbus, OH, on October 31, 1971. We hear the band riffing on the “Tighten Up” Jam midway through a 23-minute “Dark Star.” Continuing with a fluid second set comprised of “St. Stephen” and a lengthy “Not Fade Away -> Goin’ Down The Road Feelin’ Bad -> Not Fade Away,” it’s one of the more compact and narrative second sets of the early-70s.  Steven and Rob focus on the challenges of selecting these shows, the overall approach to introducing Deadheads to lesser-known recordings, and the practice of incorporating thematic jams into their “Dark Star” jams to help push their jamming forward. In addition, they highlight one of Keith’s first gigs with the Dead.  36 from the Vault is produced by Osiris Media. It is edited and produced by Brian Brinkman, and mastered by Matt Dwyer. All music composed by Amar Sastry, unless otherwise noted. Logo design by Liz Bee Art & Design.

Welcome To 36 from the Vault! Hosted by Steven Hyden and Rob Mitchum, the series explores The Grateful Dead’s live releases. Steven and Rob use the series as a jumping-off point to discuss the wildest and most unconventional American rock band, along with the venues, cultural zeitgeist, musical evolution, and larger themes of each release.  In Episode 1 we explore Dick’s Pick’s Vol. 1. Recorded at the Curtis Hixon Hall in Tampa, FL, on December 19, 1973. Here we find the band on a high, closing out one of their strongest years ever, and featuring a fully-flowing second set marked by the uninterrupted segment of: “He’s Gone -> Truckin’ -> Nobody’s Fault But Mine -> Jam -> The Other One -> Jam -> Stella Blue.”  Steven and Rob focus on the origins of the live release series before diving into the show itself, properly highlighting the transcendent Set 2. In addition, they offer a history of the band playing odd one-off shows in out-of-the-way markets, consider the political corruption in Florida that leads to stadium naming, and muse over the value of bass solos, along with much more.  36 from the Vault is produced by Osiris Media.
