Three from the Vault is a live album by the Grateful Dead. It contains the complete show recorded on February 19, 1971 at the Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, New York. It was released on June 26, 2007. [7] [8] [9] Unlike Dick's Picks, Road Trips, Dave's Picks, and certain other of the band's archival series of live album releases, which are simply two-track stereo recordings made from the soundboard during the concert, the show on the album was recorded on a 16-track multitrack recorder and was mixed down to stereo prior to its release. Although the album was released in 2007, longtime Grateful Dead engineer Dan Healy actually mixed the album in 1993, and its release was delayed 14 years for unknown reasons. [10]

The Capitol Theatre show

The February 19, 1971 Port Chester concert marked the beginning of Mickey Hart's temporary departure from the band. The previous night's show would be his last with the Grateful Dead until his return on October 20, 1974. The February 19 concert included the first live performances of the songs "Bird Song" and "Deal", and the second performances of "Loser", "Bertha", "Playing in the Band", "Greatest Story Ever Told", and "Wharf Rat". The concert, which was on a Friday night, was the second of a series of six shows in seven days at the Capitol Theatre. [11] All of the shows were recorded on multitrack tapes, but this show and the February 21, 1971 show, released on the 50th anniversary release of Workingman's Dead, are the only ones that have been mixed and released.

The opening act for this series of concerts, and for many other shows of that era, was the New Riders of the Purple Sage. At that time the lineup of the New Riders featured Jerry Garcia of the Grateful Dead playing pedal steel guitar. The band also included John Dawson, David Nelson, Dave Torbert, and Spencer Dryden. Songs that they recorded at the February 21 and February 23, 1971 shows at the Capitol Theatre were released as an album called Vintage NRPS .

Other live Grateful Dead albums recorded in early to mid 1971 with the same band membership as on Three from the Vault are Skull and Roses , Ladies and Gentlemen... the Grateful Dead , Dick's Picks Volume 35 , and Road Trips Volume 1 Number 3 .
