Dick's Picks, Volume Three
Grateful DeadInitial release : November 1995
Grateful Dead Records GDCD-4021
Two CD live set from the May 22, 1977 show at Pembroke Pines, Florida.
The rear cover of the CD carries the following message.
This show was originally recorded on analog tape manufactured in the late 1970s. Many tapes from this period have exhibited severe deterioration in recent years. The chemical formulation has failed over time causing the magnetic oxide (which holds the musical information) to separate from the mylar backing. Fortunately we were able to recover the music on these tapes by using a baking process which rebonded the oxide to the tape. While the results of this restoration were quite remarkable, occasional weirdness remains.The rear cover of Dick's Picks, Vol. 1 also carried message about tape quality followed by a message briefly explaining the reason for the Dick's Picks series;
Dick's Picks differs from our From The Vault series in that we simply did not have access to complete shows (nor the modern mixing capabilities afforded by multitrack tapes) But we think the historical value and musical quality of these tapes more than compensates for any technical anomalies... In other words what you hear is what you get. And what you get ain't bad!Related releases
