 vinyl, rhino readies grateful dead double-lp winterland 1971, available november 23 at select independent retailers, the grateful dead made winterland its home for years until 1978, when the band closed bill graham's legendary venue for good with a spectacular new year's eve blow out. the friendly confines of the former ice-skating rink always seemed to bring out something special in the band. that's certainly true of the group's may 30, 1971 performance, which was the second night of a homestand during the era later immortalized on the 1971 live collection skull and roses., for record store day's black friday event on november 23, and rhino will release a portion of that show (all that the band has in their vault) for the first time, offering it on 180-gram vinyl as a limited edition double-lp set of 7500 copies. winterland 5/30/71 will be available exclusively at select independent music retailers for a suggested price of $34.98. visit for a list of participating stores., sourced from the original reels of tape, the music was mastered by jeffrey norman and the vinyl lacquers were cut by chris bellman at bernie grundman mastering and then pressed at rti. grammy-winning graphic artist masaki koike evokes the skull and roses album cover for this set's gorgeous gatefold., it's over one hour of dead classics that covers nearly the entire second set, which was packed with crowd pleasers like sugar magnolia, truckin' and deal. one entire lp side is dedicated exclusively to turn on your lovelight, a 15-minute-plus romp led by singer/organist ron pigpen mckernan. for its encore, the band jerry garcia, bob weir, phil lesh, bill kreutzmann, and mckernan capped the evening off with raucous johnny b. goode.; Side One, 1.

 download series volume 3 -, mp3, 128kbps : $12.99 mp3, 256kbps : $14.50 flac, lossless : $17.20, although recorded only two short months after the recently unearthed music contained on dick's picks 35 (aka "the houseboat tapes"), download series vol. 3 presents a remarkably different, but equally-inspired, version of the grateful dead. this 2 disc, complete show gem recorded in western new york state in the fall of 1971 is just the fifth show with keith godchaux as the keyboard player, a personnel move motivated by pigpen's failing health., what pigpen brought to the grateful dead in personality and sheer musical bravado, keith made up for in talent and creativity at his instrument. even though he'd been in the band for just one week, you wouldn't know it by his contributions at this rochester concert. aside from the incredible musicianship he incorporated into the band's sound, his presence seemed to reinvigorate the band., the highlights here are plentiful, but of particular note are the nascent versions of "sugaree," "tennessee jed," "jack straw," "mexicali blues," "comes a time," "one more saturday night" and "ramble on rose," all as impressive as any versions from the much-loved europe '72 tour, but with a much more raw energy and filled with giddy newness. add to these brand new songs staples such as "cold rain and snow," "loser," "bertha" and "big railroad blues," the show is capped off by a typically powerful "truckin'>drums>the other one" jam, providing everything you could ask for from this sequence.; Disc One, 1.
