GRATEFUL DEAD / DICK'S PICKS Volume 19 - 10/19/73 Oklahoma City Fairgrounds Arena, Oklahoma City, OK (Limited, Hand-Numbered, 180-Gram 6-LP Vinyl Edition) - Our previous LP releases of Grateful Dead concerts from the Dick's Picks series have encompassed the years of 1969, 1972, 1974, and 1977, but there's one year on that list that is conspicuous by its absence. That's right... we have yet to release a concert on vinyl from what is arguably the peak year of Dead touring, 1973! And what was the peak tour from that year? Yup, the fall Midwest tour. So, the choice of Dick's Picks Vol. 19 as our next vinyl 'trip' was an easy one. It was the first concert of the tour, and in fact at the time it was the first full 1973 concert to be released. More importantly, with the release of Wake of the Flood just a few days prior, it finds the band invigorated with a wealth of fresh material to explore, highlighted by stellar renditions of 'Stella Blue' and 'Eyes of the World.' The two sidelong numbers on the set, 'Playing in the Band' and 'Dark Star' (which leads into a dazzling 'Mind Left Body Jam' and a stirring 'Morning Dew'), achieve sheer improvisational bliss.
