Album Details

For their second vinyl expedition into the Grateful Dead vaults (having sold out of Dick’s Picks Vol. 34 ), Real Gone Music has landed on one of the most momentous shows in the band’s long history: the March 23, 1974 show at the Cow Palace that marked the first appearance of the famous (or infamous, depending on which Dead Head you ask) Wall of Sound concert PA!

• Real Gone Music Continues Its Long Strange Trip Through the Grateful Dead Catalog with a Vinyl Release of One of the Most Momentous Shows in the Band’s Long History

• Dick’s Picks Vol. 24—Cow Palace Daly City, CA 3/23/74 Captures the Dead’s Very First Show Using the Notorious “Wall of Sound” Concert PA

• Built by LSD Chemist Owsley “Bear” Stanley, the Wall of Sound PA Offered Unprecedented Clarity in a Live Setting Even as the Freight Costs to Transport It Nearly Bankrupted the Band

• Real Gone’s 4-LP Release of Dick’s Picks Vol. 24 Goes to Great Lengths to Preserve That Audio Clarity in the Vinyl Format

• Mastered from the Original Tapes by Long-Time Dead Engineer Jeffrey Norman at Mockingbird Mastering

• Lacquer Cut by the Venerable John Golden at Golden Mastering

• Test Pressings Rejected and Finally Approved by Mastering Engineer Jeffrey Norman, Grateful Dead Archivist David Lemieux, and Real Gone’s Own Gordon Anderson

• Pressed on 180-Gram Vinyl to Minimize Warpage and Surface Noise

• The Four LPs Are Housed Inside a Full-Color Hardshell Box and Come in Poly-Lined Sleeves

• Includes a 4-Page, Full-Sized, 4-Color Insert That Includes Bear’s Original Notes for the CD Release

• Never Before on Vinyl

• The 3/23/74 Show Was Notable for the Premiere of Two Songs That Became Staples of the Dead’s Repertoire, “Cassidy” and “Scarlet Begonias”

• Also Marked the Third and Last Appearance of the “Playing in the Band/Uncle John’s Band/ Morning Dew/Uncle John’s Band/Playing in the Band” Medley, a Definitive and Daring Rendition
