San Francisco's Winterland Arena was home court during one of the Dead's most glorious eras, and Winterland gigs there were not just events, they became an institution. Grateful Dead played more shows there than any other artist, including the venue's epic closing in 1978. This nine-disc box set captures every mind-bending note recorded at Winterland during the band's legendary three-night residency in November 1973â€”a run of shows that Grateful Dead archivist David Lemieux argues is among the very finest contained within the band's vast tape vault. Winterland 1973
, is the long awaited "Complete Run" follow-up to the ecstatically received Fillmore West 1969: The Complete Recordings
, which sold out almost immediately in 2005.
Housed in in a deluxe archival box, Winterland 1973
contains a portfolio of 72 previously unreleased tracks, presented in HDCD and mastered from the original two-track soundboard tapes using a cutting-edge process that delivers unparalleled sound quality. We're certain that these recordings are among the very finest two-tracks ever produced. The box also includes an in-depth 28 page booklet and two surprise pieces of memorabilia from the Winterland era.
