Winterland1973

Winterland 1973: The Complete Recordings is a 9 CD live album by the American rock band the Grateful Dead. It contains three complete concerts, missing only the encore of the first concert. It was recorded on November 9, 10, and 11, 1973, at the Winterland Ballroom in San Francisco, California. The album was released on April 1, 2008.

Winterland 1973: The Complete Recordings was the second Grateful Dead album to contain an entire "run" of concerts. The first was Fillmore West 1969: The Complete Recordings, which was released in 2005.


Recording and masteringEdit

The Winterland 1973 concerts were recorded on two-channel analog tapes, using a Nagra IV reel-to-reel tape recorder. As part of mastering the recordings for CD, the analog recordings were transferred to a digital format. They were then edited using a digital signal processing system called Clarity, developed by Plangent Processes, which fixes sonic problems created by minor variations in the tape speed of the original tape recorder. The resulting recording has been corrected for pitch and tempo, and wow and flutter have been eliminated.

The album was released in HDCD format. This provides enhanced sound quality when played on CD players with HDCD capability, and is fully compatible with regular CD players.
