The Grateful Dead / Portland Memorial Coliseum and Pacific Northwest boxes

Complete unreleased show on 6LPs • six-show, 19CD box + 3CD highlights

A new 6LP vinyl box of the Grateful Dead‘s complete Portland Memorial Coliseum show from 19 May 1974 will be issued in September.

This is an unreleased show and the 30-tracks of live audio will be pressed onto six 180g vinyl records for a box that is limited to 7,500 copies.

This concert forms part of an even bigger box called Pacific Northwest ’73-74′: Believe It If You Need It. This is a massive 19CD box available exclusively from the band’s website. This brings together six previously unreleased shows from Portland, Seattle and Vancouver from June ’73 to May ’74.

Each show was mastered in HDCD from the original master tapes by Jeffrey Norman at Mockingbird Mastering. The transfers from the masters were transferred and restored by Plangent Processes (the process used on the Bruce Springsteen box sets).

The 19CD box is limited to 15,000 individually numbered copies but if you don’t want to spent the $190 required, you can opt for the more widely available three-CD set highlights set.

Portland Memorial Coliseum, Portland OR, 5/19/74 and Pacific Northwest ’73-74′: Believe It If You Need It will be issued on 7 September 2018.
