From the Grateful Dead website
Hofheinz Pavilion, Houston, TX -11/18/72

For those of you without turntables (how are you going to hear Hoyt Axton Explodes! if you dont have a turntable?!), were proudly offering Black Friday's special Hofheinz Pavilion, Houston, TX (11/18/72) release as a single CD.

Our vaults master tape of this show has first set issues that would prevent the release of this concert in its entirety, so weve decided that rather than let this exceptional second set sit on the shelves, wed release it this way. And what a batch of music!

If you picked up Daves Picks Vol. 11, one of the most highly-acclaimed in the series thus far, you know this era very well, as DP 11 was recorded the previous night, on 11/17/72 in Wichita, KS. The Houston, TX 11/18/72 show that makes up our Black Friday offering is every bit the equal of the Wichita show, and the big second set jam from Houston, made up of a 25 minute Playing In The Band, is perhaps a shade more powerful than the massive Other One from Wichita. Weve long wanted to get this out, and nows the time.

Introducing Dave's Picks

The New Limited Edition Numbered Archival Series

What happens when you take the spirit of Dick's Picks and combine it with the very best aspects of Road Trips? Dave's Picks! Esteemed archivist, vaultmeister, and all-around Dead fiend David Lemieux will curate the finest unreleased shows from the master tapes, brought to life with HDCD sonics by Jeffrey Norman, period photos, and informative liner notes. All four CD releases in 2012 will be limited to 12,000 individually numbered copies and each will come in a digipak printed on Orford stock. The entire packaging, including the trays, will be made of 100% recycled and PCW materials. Here's a sneak peek of the packaging


From the Grateful Dead website
Jack Straw may have been from Wichita but the Grateful Dead only played there once and what a show it was! Whether the band knew they would only have one shot to show the "Doo-dah" city what they were all about, we just don't know but they sure did nail it. Dick's Picks producer Dick Latvala initially considered this one for release and with a single listen, you'll know why. From the epic 90-minute 16-song first set to super tight ditties from the massively popular Workingman's Dead and American Beauty albums and newly minted Europe '72 classics like "He's Gone," "Brown-Eyed Women," and "China Cat Sunflower>I Know You Rider," you're bound to agree. Lest we forget to mention the great sounding tapes and excellent acoustics at the Century II Convention Hall. (Oh, and as a little bonus, we've thrown in the best of the bunch from Oklahoma City 11/15/72!)

Mastered in HDCD from the original soundboard recordings produced by Owsley Stanley, with fresh artwork from Tony Millionaire (and his little dog too), and liner notes from original handbill artist and then first-time Grateful Dead concert attendee Gary Houston, this sonic adventure is one to cross off the old bucket list.
