Born of the emergent counterculture perhaps more than any other single act on the bill, the Dead’s set likewise reflected Woodstock and the counterculture’s chaos to its fullest: an interminable tech break; band members getting shocked by ungrounded microphones; a few moments of flashing musical brilliance; and a total rando crashing the stage and taking the mic during the beginning of a sprawling, 40-minute rendition of “Turn On Your Lovelight.” || Photo: Allen Koss - Frank White Photo Agency #BackToTheGarden

"Life causes life. Heaven and Earth dance in this way endlessly, and their child is the forest. And so there we were, epiphanously watching that grandest and most glorious dance of life—of which we are just a tiny part—awed by a magnificence without beginning, without end..." - @BobWeir, “Sell Headwaters—Everyone Wins,” San Francisco Chronicle © Photo by Richard Pechner/ rpechner.com #WallOfSound

We're thrilled to announce that Dave's Picks Vol. 30 is the complete show from January 2, 1970, at the Fillmore East in New York City, the show that began one of the most exciting years in Grateful Dead history. This is a show that's been a long time coming, and we're incredibly excited that it's finally being released. In addition to the January 2, 1970 show, the release will include our annual Dave's Picks Bonus Disc for subscribers, and between this Bonus Disc and some room we had on our main release of January 2, 1970, we're very pleased to tell you that we'll be releasing nearly two hours from the next night, January 3, 1970, also at the Fillmore East. So, if FIVE HOURS of early 1970 Dead appeals to you, with all that it involved ("Dark Star"! "St. Stephen"! "The Eleven"! "Lovelight"! "That's It For The Other One"! "Alligator"! "Dancing In the Street"! And on and on!), this release is for you. And remember, the Bonus Disc is only available to subscribers to the 2019 Dave's Picks series.

".....And people started showing up at our shows with expensive equipment--nice microphones, all that kind of stuff-- recording the shows. We were confronted with two options: We either be cops, or we can let 'em in. We didn’t want to be cops." #tapers #Takealongstrangetrip #deadhead
"That period, the late '70s, were extraordinarily productive and some of the most popular shows we've ever played are from that period." - Phil Lesh #TakeALongStrangeTrip #Winterland #GratefulDead
