The Grateful Dead released an official live concert series called Dick's Picks.
These shows have come to be known as some of the best Grateful Dead shows of all
time. The Dick's Picks series, which started in 1993, was named for Grateful
Dead tape vault archivist Dick Latvala, who selected his favorite shows with the
band's approval and oversaw production of the albums. After Latvala's death in
1999, David Lemieux became the Dead's tape archivist and took over
responsibility for the Dick's Picks releases. Today this series is being
released on vinyl for the first time by Brookvale Records.
After sticking to the '70s for the previous five releases, Dick's Picks Volume 6
marks the first time a complete show from the 1980s gets the nod in this
preeminent live album series from The Grateful Dead. The complete three-hour
concert is a remarkable snapshot of the Dead's live output in the midst of their
third decade on the road. Vol. 6 is also well-known as the first Dead concert
attended by Phish frontman Trey Anastasio, an experience which shaped an
entirely new generation of music fans. Originally released on CD in 1997, Volume
6 finally arrives as the latest installment in Brookvale Records' critically
acclaimed Dick's Picks Vinyl Series.
This stunning 5LP set is pressed on 180g audiophile-grade black vinyl and
limited to only 1500 copies worldwide. Each 12" x 12" box set is individually
hand-numbered and features artwork, packaging, and mastering all approved by the
band. As was the case with the three preceding volumes, Dick's Picks Volume 6
has been painstakingly remastered for vinyl from the original tapes by longtime
Bay-area engineer Jeffrey Norman. This classic recording has absolutely never
"Dick's Picks Vol. 6 certainly has its place in this incredible series.
At the time, Dick Latvala was requested to find something in the early '80s -
without the request he may never have left the '70s! He was also looking
for a Scarlet Begonias > Fire On the Mountain, since this pairing had yet to be
released in the Dick's Picks series. Both are excellent in this show, and
they are followed by an equally strong "Estimated Prophet" and "Eyes of the
World". The actual process of source to vinyl was a challenge. The
original master was a Dolby B cassette, probably the Edsel of tape formats...
there are always speed variation and sound issues to deal with. I do think the
end result is darn good, and is an important part of the collection." -
