Thanks, you've definitely given me some homework! So, do you think the "Great" 5-8-77 Barton Hall show is overrated, or great but there are better? I noticed you didn't mention it. I DLed it yesterday but haven't listened to it yet.

Definitively whelmed

Free: 10-29-77 The Dead in '77 had a lot to do with raging, right? Get the recent Charlie Miller Aud - they were all the way on this night. (It was a Saturday)

Dick's Picks 15. 9-03-77 After being "unable" to play for a spell, they bust out big time - Jerry is en fuego!!! My faves are 1/2 Step, Music, Loser, Estimated>Eyes... There's a radio broadcast out there with Jerry way more front-and-center than here - this is the connoisseur's version. (It, too, was a Sat)

Dick's picks 29, 5-19 & 21-77. The first show has an electrifying Sugaree as well as a tremendous second set. The second show has Scarlet >Fire and is probably a hair better overall. (Thurs. & Sat.)

AND there are three Winterland runs to be had via the Archive and Dead.net - for purchase, downloads and vines. Suerte, suerte.

Definitive '77 Show?

There are obviously so many great live shows, but I personally feel like Live/Dead kind of best represents their late 60's sound, and Europe '72 (once I went and got the original tracks for about of it, those which were sped up so much on the offical release they sound like Alvin and the Chipmunks play the Dead) is just the best you can do to represent the 72-72 era. But I know '77 is thought of as another great year, and all I have so far is a rather underwhelming (In my opinion) show from 4-30 (Download Series, Vol. 1). What would anyone suggest as THE one, single show to have from '77, official release or otherwise? I tend to lean toward the officials only because the sound quality tends to be slightly better than the stuff available on Archive.
