Editorial Comments:
A more in depth review is forthcoming. I spent more time listening to the audio than watching the DVD, but both are really good sound quality. 

The Veneta show has a storied reputation and hearing a multi-track official recording, wow. The richness and warmth of  the instruments comes through oh so sweetly. Phil's tone is superb and holds up to very load volumes. Keith will sometimes hit just a few notes, and the clarity just adds such a nice element to the songs. The separation of the instruments, oh yeah, you can hear them all.

The one negative that comes to mind about the release is Bobby's song selection, a few too many cowboy numbers. Jerry goes country with a stunning version of the Haggard classic "Sing Me Back Home." However, Jerry delivers it more like a Dylan ballad, than a county standard. I lost track of how many times I hit the replay button for this.

The third disc is really awesome.

More later. Though, with the outstanding sound quality, this is easily the post Europe 1972 go to release, as good as Dick's Picks Vol. 36 is.

Description:
"The rock music group Grateful Dead is scheduled to perform at a 'potluck picnic' Sunday, sponsored by the Springfield Creamery." Eugene Register-Guard

A "rock picnic." The Field Trip. Kesey's Creamery. August 27, 1972. The Springfield Creamery Benefit. Call it what you will, the sun was beating down hard and bright on that fateful day in Veneta, Oregon when the Grateful Dead heeded Ken Kesey's call to help save the family Creamery. The 100-degree and rising temperatures did not deter the band who were still riding high from their adventures across the pond. It did not discourage filmmakers John Norris, Phil DeGuere, and Sam Field who gained entry into the Dead's tight-knit world with their promise to capture the culture and integrity of the scene. And it certainly didn't inhibit the estimated 20,000 Dead Heads who could not believe their, well, pot...luck.

In fact, this blistering day turned out to be a near-perfect little piece of the Grateful Dead experience and it is with great pleasure, that 41 years later we can present Sunshine Daydream to you the way it was meant to be seen and heard. As Prankster Ken Babbs puts it in the liner notes, this previously unreleased concert film "is a time capsule, a vessel full of exuberant free spirit as exhibited by the enraptured, edified, and satisfied concertgoers, a spirit that can still resound, that can still fill our hearts with joy, with compassion, with that sense and knowledge of our oneness, our open sharing and caring and the belief that the goodness inherent in all of us will continue to shine just as it did in Veneta, Oregon, in 1972. And will prevail." And prevail it does, with its pristine sound and beautiful visuals, the band transporting the audience to other-worldly planes with definitive versions of their beloved songs like "Bertha," "China>Rider," "Playing In The Band,""Greatest Story Ever Told,""Dark Star," and "Sing Me Back Home" and the Dead Heads in their wild and, quite literally, naked glory.
