The best Sugaree ever! Jerry smokes on this. Even better than 5/19/77 which is not too shabby itself.

THIS WAS MY FIRST DEAD SHOW WAY BACK WHEN AND ALTHOUGH I WAS JUST GETTING INTO THEIR MUSIC AND DID'T EVEN RECOGNIZE SOME OF THE SONGS IT WAS THE LAUNCHING PAD FOR THE NEXT 30 YEARS!

Before Sugaree-Bobby "...sorry about that, the plane went the wrong way"

May 77 northeast shows...can't be topped
-Perrin


The Peggy-O is mighty fine folks, check 'er out. Jerry's voice is so soft while the boys play in perfect unison.

the new haven coliseum was imploded a few years back because it was old an cost to much money to repair, here is a video of them imploding it if anyone is interested. the dead played some great shows here. it was sad to see it go.

the real deal folks. Get this one at nugs.net for the great second set and the 18 minnute sugaree--maybe the best ever, certainly in the top 5 (5-19-77 is hard to beat imho, amzing how in the zone they were in may 77!)

I remember racing across western RI and eastern CT to get there in time for this one. We got inside during the first verse of Promised Land. The best show of any kind I have ever seen, period.

first show and what an impression on a group of 15 year olds,we wandered down the center aisle to about the 20th row and loved the older deadheads swaying with hands clapping overhead standing on their seats, boy was i hooked!
