Box of Rain

Dave’s Picks Vol. 42

One more Saturday night at Winterland! The one that featured the earliest amalgamation of what would soon become the Wall of Sound, the one that is so “loud, clear, and defined,” it’s been ripe for release for quite some time and we’re glad it’s finally getting its due.

Highlights include a stellar run of He’s Gone into Truckin’ into Drums into The Other One as well as the inspired Eyes Of The World that follows, a Weather Report Suite and what would turn out to be the final Here Comes Sunshine until 1992. The bonus disc features live debuts of U.S. Blues, It Must Have Been The Roses” and “Ship Of Fools” from February 22, 1974 as well as a +20-minute Playing In The Band” and more.
