Listen to Keith's piano leads on Cassidy. When the guy was "on" he added so much.

Spectacular show. I am not a big fan of latter 70's dead, but 77 was nice. Nice upbeat tempo. Love the Candyman (you hear Jerry singing so honestly). Jerry also rips things up with a roaring passenger. The 1st set closer, Music Never Stopped, ends it with edgy jam. One of my fav's.

you are crazy Babak, latter 70's Dead was the shit man...they were in their prime the whole era.

NO SHIT MAN, THE 70'S ROCKED ASS. SO MANY ORIGINAL SONGS AND DEAD STAPPLES CAME OUT OF THAT ERA, ESPECIALLY TOWARDS THE END. THEY FINALLY FOUND THIER TRUE SOUND
-Anonymous


I agree - '77 and '78 have to be the best years for the band. Rarely did they sound better...
-Anonymous


This show is incredible! The first set is like a greatest hits CD with a smokin' FOTD and a very cool Music Never Stopped. And I agree, the 77-78 shows are unparalled in Dead touring history.

72-74 were the best years of the dead
72 being above the others
-Anonymous


while i agree that 77-78 were truly a great years for the dead i must say that the best years IMHO must be without a doubt be 72-74..the playing in those days was just a "band beyond description". play dead :^)
-Ga-DeadHead


I THINK THAT THE 70'S ALSO HAPPENED TO BE THE VERY BEST ERA FOR DA BOYS. BEST SONG SELECTIONS, BEST NEW SONGWRITING, EXCELLENT NEW ALBUMS....HANDS DOWN WINS EM ALL!!!!

I love '73. If you get confused listen to the music play...

Wonderful show during their heyday, but do we really ever need to listen to Lazy Lightnin' / Supplication. That is about as awful as Corrina. I removed it from my copy.

Hey now, don't knock on Lazy/Supplication! The Pembroke Pines Dicks Pick's vol. 3 will blow your mind. I think the Dead played so distinctly different in the 70's its hard to pick a "best ever" year. Definatly 72-74 has its trippy outstanding qualities, but '77 blows me away in terms of how tight the band plays and the power and energy they have. I think their musical genius peaked in May '77 and the years before that had their moments too. Hell I wouldn't be without any of their live shows from 1966-1985, after that it's slip pickin's. There are only a handfull of truly great shows between 86-95 as compared to the night after night greatness of the 70's. My appologies to all the second generation hippies that totally dug the 90's. Vince and Bruce just didn't do that much for me, nor Garcia's failing health and inspiration. I wish I was alive to see a show in '77.

Peggy-O. Clearly one of the best!

QUIT TALKING IN ALL CAPS.

Just started Bertha and I can already tell you it's gonna be a good show. Looks like an amazing second set.

STP - '73 amazing year, one of the best, however, you couldn't hear the music play until Franklin's debuted in '75 - confused
- (05/22/2012)


Best year was 1970: massive jams, acoustic sets, new songs, pigpen, etc.
-Anonymous (12/24/2015)


Smoking uptempo Peggy-O. Badass show!
