Grateful Dead - Three From the Vault  2 CD Set

Finally, the long lost final chapter in the Grateful Dead's legendary From The Vault series has arrived. THREE FROM THE VAULT features more than 2 hours of previously unreleased Grateful Dead music from a fondly remembered 1971 Port Chester show. THREE FROM THE VAULT contains 2 CDs of pristine HDCD sound mastered from the original multi-track tapes. The deluxe packaging includes vintage photos and insightful liner notes by Glenn Lambert.    

 Representing the pinnacle of the band's renowned archive of 2,400 live show recordings, the groundbreaking From The Vault series' rare multi-track recordings thrilled hardcore fans and novices alike before stalling in 1992 after only two volumes. That the Dead would wait another 15 years before putting out the series' third installment should come as no surprise to anyone familiar with the band's longstanding policy of gleefully monkey-wrenching the space-time-continuum whenever and wherever possible.  

 Recorded February 19, 1971 at the Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, NY, the 20-song performance has traveled a long road to release. Fortunately for Dead fans, THREE FROM THE VAULT is worth the wait. Featuring Jerry Garcia, Bill Kreutzmann, Phil Lesh, Ron “Pigpen” McKernan and Bob Weir, the concert sustains the creative momentum the band created recording their breakthrough albums Workingman's Dead and American Beauty the previous year. Heard here are the second-ever performances of “Loser,” “Bertha,” “Playing In The Band,” “Greatest Story Ever Told” and “Wharf Rat,” plus the world premieres of “Bird Song” and “Deal.” All of which would go on to become beloved staples of the live repertoire for the rest of the bands touring life. The show was significant for other reasons as well. With drummer Mickey Hart on hiatus, the band began developing a leaner, more spacious sound. Bill Kreutzmann, now the sole drummer, rose to the daunting challenge magnificently, as did his band mates. This is Grateful Dead music stripped down to its bare essence.
