Comments:

I was at this show and what I remember is the band comming out playing like a drum majorets jam thing then going into trucking. Know way did this show open with feel like a stranger. Then in one more saturday night bobby sang "everyone is dancing down the local skating rink" After the show my friends and I stayed around to play frisbee. Someone said the band is leaving out back. So we went around to the back of the gym. Security was heavy because some chick was stalking Jerry big time. After he left Bobby came out thinking there would be this big groupy croud and it was only me and my three friend. He was like "oh hey, hows' it going". All we could think of was to say "great Show" worked for us.

the goin down the road feelin bad is awesome! jerry cranks out some power chords at one point that just blew me away...another excellent show at Cornell!
-


we all know that spring 77' provided some of the best shows of the Dead's career, and Barton Hall is no exception. Other then Springfield Civic Center 4/23/77, Barton Hall could be one of the finest shows ever


-


The Let it Grow just grows and grows, an amazing first set. An insanely high energy Passenger. The stella is so somber and the OMSN is so damn exciting. One of the finest shows of the '80's for sure.

I love the 17 minute 'Shakedown', 'Stranger is rockin!
-Chad

Will be officially released on 30 Trips Around The Sun Box (SEPT 2015)
-M C (06/10/2015)


Why does my copy of this show sound better than the 30 trips box set version?
-? (09/17/2016)


st and sailor quite sweet. slow and deliberate. clear span of guitar calmly and clear playing. is that a duh? sorry. in the moment.
-jim (05/09/2018)


Beautiful Friend of the Devil. My favorite.

Other than that, not one of the high points of the box largely due to 38 year old Jerry sounding like he's 88.
