The legendary series of peak live shows, culled from the band's vault!

The first show to use the Dead's "Wall of Sound" PA system

Features the concert debuts of "Cassidy" and "Scarlet Begonias"

Concert highlight is a monumental "Playing in the Band/Uncle John's Band/Morning Dew/ Uncle John's Band/Playing in the Band" medley

This Dick's Picks volume, which presents excerpts of the Dead's March 23, 1974 show at the Cow Palace, is not only historic but a hot show to boot! First, the history: this concert marked the first appearance of the famous (or infamous, depending on which Deadhead you ask) Wall of Sound concert PA, with the crystal-clear sound to show for it; it also features the debut of two songs, "Cassidy" and "Scarlet Begonias," that were to become staples of the band's repertoire.

As for the quality of the performance, for many the clear highlight will be the "Playing in the Band/Uncle John's Band/Morning Dew/Uncle John's Band/Playing in the Band" medley (making its third and final appearance in a set list), which on this occasion stretched its "Playing in the Band" segments almost to their breaking point. A peak show from a pivotal period in the band's development! Here as a hand-numbered 4LP 180-gram vinyl edition!
