    Dick's Picks Vol. 1 — 12/19/73, Tampa, FL

    Welcome To 36 from the Vault! Hosted by Steven Hyden and Rob Mitchum, the series explores The Grateful Dead’s live releases. Steven and Rob use the series as a jumping-off point to discuss the wildest and most unconventional American rock band, along with the venues, cultural zeitgeist, musical evolution, and larger themes of each release. 


    In Episode 1 we explore Dick’s Pick’s Vol. 1. Recorded at the Curtis Hixon Hall in Tampa, FL, on December 19, 1973. Here we find the band on a high, closing out one of their strongest years ever, and featuring a fully-flowing second set marked by the uninterrupted segment of: “He’s Gone -> Truckin’ -> Nobody’s Fault But Mine -> Jam -> The Other One -> Jam -> Stella Blue.” 


    Steven and Rob focus on the origins of the live release series before diving into the show itself, properly highlighting the transcendent Set 2. In addition, they offer a history of the band playing odd one-off shows in out-of-the-way markets, consider the political corruption in Florida that leads to stadium naming, and muse over the value of bass solos, along with much more. 


    36 from the Vault is produced by Osiris Media. It is edited and produced by Brian Brinkman, and mastered by Matt Dwyer. All music composed by Amar Sastry, unless otherwise noted. Logo design by Liz Bee of Liz Bee Art & Design. The executive producer of 36 from the Vault is RJ Bee.

Chicken Soup for the Deadheads Soul

Title says it all - this is like listening to two of your best friends engaging in the nerdiest (in the most positive sense) discussion of the Dead. And not just the Dicks Picks aspect, but hitting on cultural events happening at the time. Looking forward to all 35 episodes!

I thought you guys were fans? lol

I like geeking out with Deadheads that love to talk about the dead…

But y’all didn’t sound like you like a lot of tunes… Weather report suite? come on… Deadheads would love to hear that tune.

Playin in the band? Seriously? Those long loose jams are what makes the dead the dead… at least to me.

To each their own, I’ll keep hanging on cause I love listening to this stuff. But in general, I got the sense that you didn’t like too much…
