Box of Rain

Live At The Cow Palace – New Years Eve 1976 (LP) [24-96] / [16-44] / [24-44] HDCD

“Live at the Cow Palace” boasts full, streamlined sound. Jeffrey Norman’s mastering from the thirty-year old recording by Bob Mathews and Betty Cantor-Jackson reveals many nuances (like Keith Godchaux’s barrelhouse piano), and the Tim Truman artwork is worth checking out. As a result, discovering the mariachi motif of “Good Lovin'” is as likely to bring a smile as noticing the lightning bolt tattoo adorning the bovine figure on the cover. Good ol’ Grateful Dead indeed.

    I can’t seem to grab the Spirit of ’76 bonus disc. I’ve tried starting the torrent 3 times now, but it won’t kick off.
