Grateful Dead Dick's Picks Vol. 6 on Numbered Limited Edition 180g 5LP Box Set
Latest Installment in Brookvale Records' Critically-Acclaimed Dick's Picks Vinyl Series Recorded Live 10/14/83 at Hartford Civic Center, CT!
First Time on Vinyl - Remastered from the Original Master Tapes by Acclaimed Audio Engineer Jeffrey Norman
Numbered Limited Edition of Only 1500 Copies Worldwide!
After sticking to the 1970s for each of the previous volumes, the preeminent live concert series from the Grateful Dead moves into the '80s with Volume 6. The complete three-hour concert is a remarkable snapshot of the Dead's live output in their third decade on the road. Originally released on CD in 1997, Volume 6 is now the latest installment in Brookvale Records' critically-acclaimed Dick's Picks Vinyl Series.
This stunning 5-LP set is pressed on 180 gram 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. Whether you're a diehard Deadhead or just a casual listener, we think you'll agree this classic recording has absolutely never sounded better.
"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." – Jeffrey Norman, Mockingbird Mastering
