Grateful Dead Dick’s Picks Vol. 35—San Diego, CA 8/7/71, Chicago, IL 8/24/71 (4-CD Set)
The story behind this volume of Dick's Picks is truly rich'Jerry Garcia gave the 1/4' tapes to these shows to Keith Godchaux in order to familiarize him with the band's repertoire. Godchaux then left the tapes on his parents' houseboat in Alameda, where they remained for nearly 35 years until being discovered by Keith's brother in 2005! Despite the less-than-optimal storage conditions, the sound on this four-CD set (mastered in HDCD) is stellar, and the fact that these tapes were lost means that soundboard recordings of this tour were very scarce indeed. Includes the entire San Diego show and all that could be salvaged from the Chicago show, plus the end of the 8/6/71 show at the Hollywood Bowl.
