Fenway Night 1 Set 2. Etched in my mind forever. Possibly the greatest set of live music I have seen in person. Dead&Co are the best live act out right now IMHO.

That's awesome.

Couple things:

I picked up the RSD release Grateful Dead, 7/29-30/66. A very good recording for early days. With some solid lesser spun tunes and a few classics. Very good quality and packaging. Def worthy of the price tag.

I also got the Acid Test by Ken Kesey on vinyl for RSD. It's bad, bizarre and cool all in one. A collectors item for sure.

Another album I scored in the last 6 months is Circles Around the Sun by Neal Cassal. This was the music spun during the Fare Thee Well show intermissions. Its a great album. The band is also playing a late night show after DeadCo Night 1 in Boulder this year.

Last one, they are releasing the classic show Cornell 5/8/77. Possibly sold out already but..

I skipped this Dead RSD release since I did get a pre-order of Cornell '77. Can't wait to spin it (I think it's released next month)

Can't wait to listen to this!! Yes May 5 release.

May 1977 - Get Shown The Light



Just started the 2nd show of 4: Boston 05-07-1977 40 Years ago today.
This boxset of 4 incredible shows sounds so perfect.

This is a must have!

Holy shit 7-12-89 RFK at the movies last night was on fire!!!!!!

I had no idea it was a contender for best show of the year.  I thought it blew away all of the Alpine Valley shows from later in the week that they showed a few years ago at the movies and on the Downhill From Here DVD.

Bruce Hornsby KILLING it and throwing down the gauntlet to Jerry to match him, Jerry and Brent totally locked into one another all smiles for so much of the show and Jerry dancing like it was 1978 in that hot hot hot Women Are Smarter!!!

Great first set with an epic Promised Land, too!  The Rolling Stones are the number one Chuck Berry cover band, IMO, but the Grateful Dead are right there at number two, plus Jerry takes three verses of soloing at full speed, while Keef and Mick Taylor keep it short most of the time.

You say you don't like Dear Mr. Fantasy?  Watch this version and see if it don't change your mind, Jerry was ripping it up!

so much props to Brent for his great vocals, especially back up with Weir on Cassidy and with Jerry on Black Peter and Dear Mr. Fantasy.

That was a KILLER show!!!

They are releasing an audio only box set of those two nights at RFK over on Dead.net

Nice review Shug.  :thumbsup:

We were at these shows and your take on them is pretty spot on to how I felt after these shows. Wonderful memories from those nights. Hell, that summer and era as well for me.

Thanks for the audio box heads up.   I definitely want to have this.   :beer:

Wish I had done more East Coast and Midwest shows in those days.  I lived in the Bay Area and could catch 12- 16 shows a year without leaving my city, and I was a student with little money so those are the shows I saw.  They sure did rip it up on tour, more so than at home, I'd say.

Glad you got to experience it firsthand, eric!  Looked like a real good time!

Haha, I know the feeling. I was a fairly new dad at that point so we didn't get to any shows farther away than driving distance during those years. Fortunately for us, we were in driving distance anywhere from DC to Boston, and the boys hit the NE/Mid Atlantic pretty hard in those days.  :thumbsup:

I always wanted to see them in California and especially the SF Bay Area but never did, unfortunately. I can't really complain though, I was lucky to see some great shows at some classic venues on this coast,and will always be Grateful for that!  :wink:

AXS TV Offers Television Premiere Of ‘Dear Jerry: Celebrating The Music Of Jerry Garcia’

In May of 2015 an impressive array of musicians including some of his Grateful Dead band mates came together at Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, Maryland to honor the late Jerry Garcia. Dear Jerry: Celebrating The Music Of Jerry Garcia featured the likes of Bob Weir, Bill Kreutzmann, Mickey Hart, moe., the Disco Biscuits, Widespread Panic and more. AXS TV will air a concert film documenting the event.
The television premiere of Dear Jerry is scheduled for 9 p.m. ET this Saturday night, August 19. Dear Jerry ends a day of programming honoring the 50th anniversary of the Summer Of Love.
