MAGICAL, MYTHICAL MAY 1977!

If you're a Dead Head, chances are you've spent many an hour expounding upon the distinction of May 8, 1977, Cornell University, Barton Hall. Well, at the risk of preaching to the choir, we'd like to reintroduce you to a series of shows that matches said greatness from that same gloriously fertile season. While Barton Hall is well known, the astounding tour that surrounded it has occasionally flown under the radar due to the uneven quality of tapes in circulation. May 1977 is set to change all of that with a boxed set that zeroes in on this high-water mark in the Grateful Dead's long strange trip.

For a band resurrecting itself after a 20-month hiatus, there was a great frenzy of expectancy that surrounded the Spring of 1977. We anticipate a grand reoccurrence of this fervor with the release of May 1977, a 14-disc boxed set featuring five complete shows from consecutive stops on that magical tour. Mastered in HDCD by Jeffrey Norman at Mockingbird Mastering, the "psychoacoustic phenomena" as Jerry once put it, of St. Paul Civic Center Arena, St. Paul, MN (5/11) Auditorium Theatre, Chicago, IL (5/12, 5/13), St. Louis Arena, St. Louis MO (5/15) and Coliseum at the University Of Alabama, Tuscaloosa, AL (5/17) can now finally be appreciated. Each of these shows finds the Dead delivering punchier, more focused sets, tightening up the framework; each night turning out first-ever renditions ("Passenger,""Iko Iko,""Jack-A-Roe"), unloading potent new pairings ("Scarlet Begonias">"Fire On The Mountain", "Estimated Prophet">"Eyes Of The World"), classic covers ("Dancing In The Street") and soon-to-be staples ("Estimated Prophet," "Samson and Delilah"), and ultimately rising up to paradise.

And now for the nitty-gritty...

Due June 11, May 1977 is limited to 15,000 individually numbered copies. Presented in a psychedelic box that boasts an intricate die-cut design created by Grammy®-winning graphic artist Masaki Koike, the set also includes a book filled with stories about each show, as well as an in-depth essay by Dead historian Steve Silberman, who delves deep into the history behind the tour and the band’s return from its extended hiatus.

Once these 15,000 boxes are gone, May 1977 and its shows will never be available again on CD. However, the 111 tracks will be made available on release date as FLAC and Apple lossless full-set-only downloads for $99.98.

Like its predecessors Europe '72: The Complete Recordings and Spring 1990, we expect May 1977 to sell out. Your best bet is to pre-order it now, then sit back, relax, and enjoy all the exclusive content we'll be rolling out over the next few weeks right here and on Facebook.com/GratefulDead and Youtube.com/gratefuldead.

claney, evgraham re: items not in the vault

My information is that the tapes for DP 30 Academy of Music release are not in the vault. It was produced from a Rob Eaton remaster of the master reels. We have hope.
P.S. Not to mention the reminder by mustin321 that a tune from 5/8/77 has been officially released. Check out the New Yorker article, that's my source.

One man gathers what GD spills

@Deadegad – The transaction is already showing up on my account, so it looks like you will be charged right away…it seems that in the past, you weren’t charged until it ships…

@PatagonianFox- There are a lot of repeats, say compared to Spring of 90 (which I still think is one of the best releases that has ever been put out…ever) but think of how many repeats were in the Europe 72 box. Now, think about how many gems are in there and how many great jams are in there and…well, just enjoy, you know you love it already.

@claney – thanks for the stats…However, Im not sure why you are sad that Me and My Uncle only shows up once out of the 5…it is the GD’s most played song and there are plenty of other versions out there. Speaking of which, I really like the one from DaP 6, Jerry is attacking the song right from the getgo.

Also, what evgraham said. Without Bear starting all of this with his “sonic journals” we would not be blessed with such great music in amazing quality. They played a lot a great shows but DL is the one picking, be glad there are plenty to choose from.

P.S. 5/8/77 is not in the vault (but for some reason, Dancing in the Streets from 5/8/77 is on the bonus tracks from Terrapin Station)

Box Set

This box is worth it just for St Louis alone. Dancin' is incredible and the whole second set is off the charts. St Stephen > Iko > NFA > Sugar Mag > Sunshine Daydream and UJB encore is some of the best music from this tour including 5/8... I had an audience tape of this that I just wore out. Great to have this show emerge from the vault.

at least the GD made an attempt to mix it up

you're gonna get some repetition with 6 consecutive shows.

If they did totally different songs every night, I'm sure someone wouldn't have liked that. "I haven't heard BEW in years".

People will complain about anything. ANYthing. What a sense of entitlement.

Anyone complaining about this box - or any other really - is just nuts. GD fans are the luckiest group of fans anywhere IMHO.

And I don't know why so many people don't seem to understand: BARTON HALL (5/8) IS NOT IN THE VAULT!!! IT IS NOT THERE TO BE RELEASED!!!

Just be happy.

nearly identical

is anyone else a bit put off by the fact that all 5 shows are so repetitive? you'd think the powers that be could find a 5 show run with more variety. the palladium shows would have been a better choice IMO.

52 different songs

By my count, these five shows saw the Dead play 52 different songs (counting Drums and Space). The usual '77 suspects were repeated five times (Estimated, BEW, Samson). I was surprised at some that weren't repeated more - like The Music Never Stopped, played only once. Me and My Uncle only played once, how sad. Also kind of cool that all three Chuck Berry covers are played, but only once each (Promised, Around, JBG).

Anyway, here is the list - songs are listed in the order the appear first in the setlists. Song titles followed by the number of times played. Enjoy:

Promised Land – 1
TLEO – 3

Splendid Muttley, Splendid!

Top news and purchase made. If the missus asks, it was only 50 quid...

Shame we couldnt have had an unreleased show with HOTW/S/FT from the tour. It's my favourite piece of music (by anyone, not just the Dead) and the versions from Buffalo (on a boot I've got) and Dicks 3 (Florida pines?) are stunning. Garcia's playing on those 2 Franklin's Towers were inspired so it would have been good to here other examples.

A minor gripe of course. Keep 'em coming...

Too Late to Add a Bonus for Pre-Orders?

Would really be nice to have a bonus disc added to this new box set. My still awesome Winterland 77 box now has a superfluous bonus disc. C'mon David make it happen, we deserve it. If anything it'll definitely increase the pre-orders. This set "May" sell out at some point, but it'll probably take a few months. The Winterland June 77 box is still (thankfully) available years later.

2 great shows, 3 ok shows

think I'll pass on this one, but you all go ahead, I agree with a lot that has been said ie other dates to include in this box, keep the first and the last, add three others in place of the others and then you would have a great box, not an ok box with 2 great shows. This is just rhino's way of making big cash on so-so shows, "let's include them with these great shows, that way we make max dollars off of the vault." Besides, it will be available forever via download so what's the big deal again? by the way, love DP's 6, best release in a long time.

Or when people register for Dead.net they could receive an automatic email that says, "Oh by the way, 5/5/77 through 5/9/77 is NOT IN THE @#$%!!@#@ Vault!!~!!!

I can't wait to finish listening to my Furthur Tour and burning those disc
so I can pull out all of my 77 cassettes, and CD's for a new wall display next to the Jerry Shrine
along with Dick's Pick's "Englishtown's Raceway Park" Labor Day show 1977.

That was a first show for many tristate DeadHeads and was a FM broadcast all over NYC and NJ and PA.
What a great recruiting tool, Free Dead.

Jack a Roe '77

@Roland

I love the slow, groovy '77 versions much more than the later-day speeded out versions. Jerry sounds a little (maybe a lot) like he's channeling Mark Knopfler in his playing on those '77 jacks, especially in the opening riffs!

nice set...

I would rather have the Winterland set if I had to choose one, but this looks pretty sharp as fine archival product. I love my 3 CDRs from St. Paul, and I have always wanted to hear Tuscaloosa. I had the St. Louis show in great aud for years. I will buy all these via FLAC download. However, no Morning Dew, no Help-Slip and no Franklin's Tower. When I reach for some Spring '77, first choice will likely always be 4/23, 5/7, 5/8, 5/9 and the June Winterland shows.

When you mentioned Jack-a-roe, I checked and yes, it's the one from Fallout from the Phil zone. Indeed the all time version, as far as I know. So we (probably) all have it, but nice to hear it in context!

Too good to pass up

Yes, these shows have been "around" for a while now, but they are too good not to have in enhanced pristine sound quality & with informative essays to read about the shows (which I think is one of the very underrated things about official Dead releases like this. I love reading about what made a particular performance special, and many of these are just that.)

If I really had my druthers I'd prefer a box set from the Fall tour of '77 (let's say 10/28 thru 11/4, just for fun), but I aint gonna quibble about these excellent May shows. In particular I'm really excited about 5/13 which contains one of the all-time greatest SCARLET>FIRES ever, and that's saying a lot. That whole show is very under-appreciated, and 5/17 is no slouch either (all-time JACKAROE and a beautiful TERRAPIN.

But who am I kidding? When it comes to releases like this I'm like Zellwegger in "Jerry Maguire" ("You had me at 1977 ;-)

Casual fans will buy this

Allman, I too prefer the more compact box sets, but I went ahead and ordered this anyway (I'm pretty sure it is DVD case height from the pic).

I think this will sell out faster than some think, because the "audience" is bigger. It's got that nice promo in Rolling Stone with two really great samples - a lot of Rolling Stone readers who aren't Deadheads might snap this up because May '77 is known even to casual fans who own just a few Dead albums.

Anyway, I decided I better not wait...

I'm Going GAH, GAH Over This / What a Steal !

What a treat, Christmas came early. Any Grateful Dead Head knows how special and unique certain years of the bands shows were.
And 1977 is one of those tours that gets my antenna's attention. The best part is that I don't have to wait a year for it to get shipped. Just 4 short weeks. Well worth the total cost of $162 divided by 14 Betty Boards is $11 a HDCD. What a Steal.

Price

On another note. Anyone have any idea of what the price is likely to be on the FLAC version?
If past is any precedent, GDM will charge the exact same price for the FLAC version. Sorry this should have posted under the comment of the person who asked about download price.

dimensions?

Could we get dimensions of this box? I like the size of the Winterand 73 and 77 boxes. This looks comparable to the Spring 1990 box is size. Small and compact works for me.
Does anyone know if your CC is charged at purchase or when the box ships? It is usually when the box ships.
This is a very sweet box set and offered early in the year. Makes me wonder if another box set will be offered later in the year.
I was very surprised on a 77 release. I was thinking it would have been a 73 or 74 box.
Many thanks for all the releases!

When they say "For a band

When they say "For a band resurrecting itself after a 20-month hiatus..." do they mean the 20 months prior to the shows they played for the last year? the hiatus was '75, not '76....

Given that the band only had one 20 month hiatus, I'm going to guess that they are referring to the one that started in November '74. I don't think they are trying to suggest that these are the first concerts played after the hiatus, but that they are in the ongoing process of "resurrecting" their live shows after the prolonged time off.

A REAL TREAT

The lossless dowloading option is a great option for those unable to get this new set, and a very clever system which I hope will be applied to all future releases. Having at least five Dead releases a year is really a reason to celebrate. The prize of this box is quite accesible, just compare it with that of releases by other groups! Few bands take so much care of their archives and put so much effort in offering more and more to their fans everyday, and I really mean it.
I must say, though, that 1977 is not my favorite year, but it makes great listening anyway, and I know most fans cherish this tour and were longing for something like this. I would love a Complete Winterland 1974 box someday, and, of course, Veneta '72. Keep them coming!

Am I missing something?

When they say "For a band resurrecting itself after a 20-month hiatus..." do they mean the 20 months prior to the shows they played for the last year? the hiatus was '75, not '76....

On another note. Anyone have any idea of what the price is likely to be on the FLAC version?

Would like to appreciate

All involved with this project. Nice picks, great artwork and essays and liner notes. A reasonable price per disc. Many of us have been asking for exactly this. And will be available as a download as well. These are things on a lot of people's wishlists. It makes you feel like somebody is listening...

Hoo Wee

What's not to love about this tour? I celebrated my 20th birthday and the end of a hellacious finals week at the St. Paul show and I (mostly) remember every nuance of every tune. Looking foward to replacing a very tired old tape (that I no longer have the means to listen to). And the international shipping rates aren't bad. A set is headed to Singapore.

Look up!

Once these 15,000 boxes are gone, May 1977 and its shows will never be available again on CD. However, the 111 tracks will be made available on release date as FLAC and Apple lossless full-set-only downloads.
