Grateful Dead archivist David Lemieux has announced details for the latest installment of the Dave’s Picks series. Volume 14 will include full audio from the band’s March 26, 1972 concert at the Academy of Music in New York City. Surprisingly, no soundboard audio from this show has ever been circulated.
A statement from Lemieux reads:
“We’re really thrilled to reveal that Dave’s Picks Vol. 14, another complete show in the series, is from the majestic (and highly sought-after!) gig on March 26, 1972 at the Academy Of Music in New York City. In addition to powerful workouts on the usual 1972 jamming vehicles ‘The Other One’ and ‘Good Lovin’,’ this show features the prototype of what would be become the typical Europe ’72 setlist a couple of weeks later. Our 2015 Dave’s Picks subscribers’ Bonus Disc (available for only a couple of more days if you subscribe) is drawn from a couple of other unreleased nights at the Academy Of Music during the Dead’s week-long run before they left for Europe.”
