Six months ago David Glasser embarked on a project of outstanding proportions, the long-awaited release of the Grateful Dead’s entire 1972 European Tour. Spanning 22 shows, “Europe ’72: the Complete Recordings” is a 73 disc box set. Release date September 9th. In close collaboration with mixer Jeffrey Norman and producer David Lemieux, David mastered each show – typically 3 or 4 CDs – as the mixes arrived from Jeffrey, who also kept up an ambitious pace, mixing at SPARS member Prairie Sun Studios in Sonoma County, and editing the material at his Mockingbird Mastering studio.
To celebrate the completion of the project, Jeffrey, along with SIA Acoustics designer Sam Berkow traveled to the Boulder studios in early July to master the last discs.
