1974 Summer Tour Wall Of Sound!!! Show - at the Selland Arena!!!Dave's Picks Volume " 17 " has arrived - and, yes indeed... " Prime-Time " Pre-Hiatus Good Ol' Grateful Dead!! And this time - not only just through the " Wall Of Sound " - but through the Wall Of Sound! -- at the way note-worthy'70's G. Live Venue - the Selland Arena!!! As this one my fellow Dead Fans, is a simply Unbelievable-Heater!!!
As usual - as we all well know - the Music! Needs to do the talking here, and wow - does it ever on this-release!
So-tough to put into words, for sure - but... This I will say --- this-Show is truly a candidate for " Top 10 " - or, maybe even " Top 5 " arguably, from the Amazing! First off, this Show fell on Keith's Birthday - and he truly plays like it...Thoroughness, attentiveness, at times - even aggressiveness, and with Joy! And this really seems to stimulate both Jerry & Phil from the early get go. These two battle, weave, cat & mouse, challenge each other... Both early & often thoroughly during this Magical! The Scarlet is certainly trademarked here by both precision & high-energy attacks that really sets the stage & tone for what Set II delivers - strong!
The Playin' is lengthy, massive, long, hard-jammed, and... Jack Straw in a big way, and from here on... He's Gone is played into a spirited U. Sheer Good Ol' Grateful Dead!!! More & more of it...Because let me tell you... This Weather Report Suite, and it's immediate surroundings are & will-be worth an immediate " re-wind " ahh yes... To so kindly integrate a little' analog' talk into this overwhelming digital-era... As at this point, Phil pretty much transcends away from being a' Bass' player, and steps into the " Lead Guitar # 2 " roll - which can often so Beautifully! Patent' this Pre-Haitus'73 /'74 G. - and Jerry feels it deep down into his soul too - as there are hints of both! Smokestack Lightning' &' Spanish Jam' teases inside the base area of this Jam... I mean --- " Let It Grow "!!!
This is a pure & deep-jammed Ripper! - that has some of the same Magic!
- but naturally a bit different & unique... Just as the July'74 Cap Centre Smoker that the Band delivered in Maryland just a few days later. You can hear the progression & immediate relation between these two stand-out versions.
Basically, this is a full-on' Spanish Jam' in full effect, and I'm not entirely sure why this isn't labeled on the set list of this CD set. But hey, don't we all love surprises - and this is most certainly a Grate! Eyes Of The World is born from this Jam decent, and it's arguably a' perfect' version of Eyes!
Jerry is absolutely-perfect on all of the chords, flurries, tempos, timings, and attacks. Dang, I mean even if this might be bordering on a Phil and even Keith Show... As isn't it just amazing how that case can pretty much always! Be made when listening closely - what a Player!
Both a Student & Master! Is ok on the Soundboard section - but, kind of dicey overall. For putting this one so amazingly-sounding & in a pretty little box - with a little Skeleton!Put you in a pleasant trance, and as for Saturday Night? Well, let's just say it will most-definitely make you want to go out & Enjoy! - much like this' Whole!
