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.

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.

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.

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.
