Soundcheck: River Deep Mountain High

At the moment of New Years a huge illuminated sign saying "1977" was lowered from above the stage.
Bill Graham dressed as Father Time emerged from a 40 foot high lotus blossom.
Morning Dew was great.
After the show, one of our fellow celebrants unwisely leaped through a picture window. He landed on my hang glider on my jeep under the window, unhurt. Man Saved By Hang Glider!

This was MY FAVORITE NEW YEAR'S EVE SHOW.

Check the Good Lovin into Sampson & Delilah. That is 100% pure jammin!
This has become one of my current fav's

Wonder why they didn't play Franklin's?
-Anonymous


even without franklins, this is one of my favorite second sets ever. any sugar mag opener is phat.
they just do not go wrong anywhere in this show.

Apparently this will be the next official GD release (and the first with Rhino as owners of the Vault) in January 2007.
-adam j


i've had this on cassette(missing dew>end) and really can't understand why this would be rhino's first release. i'm a huge '76 fan, but this just seems like a shaky show all around. jerry flubs lyrics(bertha for one), and they just don't seem to be all there, in terms of the grateful dead 'magic' happenin'. yeah, the good lovin'>sampson is stellar, but i'd personally rather see 06.14.76 or really any of the other june shows released before this. my own .02

This was my first show...... What a wild trip it was. My older brother was there to show me the way. TXS Charlie! Now we can relive the fun. Thank you.

this show is not worth it for a live release without franklins and a Stephen.

David lemeuix is a trust fund baby who toured and taped does he work for rhino now i hope they insured that treasure trove doug irwin doesnt deserve the guitars but rhino deserves the vault

DSO played this show last night after opening with a "Reckoning" style acoustic set and it was pretty amazing. an epic performance to say the least. right now they just sound tighter than ever, especialy Matson

First New Years Eve after "hiatus" taken from Oct '74. Cant remember what I paid for my ticket but Probably worked out to a buck a song. The band was celebrating as was the crowd. Great setlist, good jams, big smiles, and yea, koolaid. Any tapers, self taught 'experts', or anylists of the band dont have to listen or like this show. They are probably pissed they missed it. To bad folks, good show, great time.

setlist.com says that Carlos joined them on "And We Bid You Goodnight". Come on. Really?
-Anonymous (11/26/2013)


I really like this one. The Playin' really goes out there. Sounds like. '74 Playin'. As mentioned the Good Lovin'>Samson has a cool jam in the segue. Then the monster Dew. Fun listen.

Me and 2 buddies drove to this show from Tulsa Oklahoma in my VW Rabbit. Four thousand miles round trip! One of the best weeks of my life.

I'll always remember the bubble machines they installed over the crowd on the floor that they fired up at midnite. It was pedal to the metal from the first note of Sugar Magnolia to the last of the Morning Dew. I felt blessed to see an "and we bid you good night" live.

Then it was back in the VW for the 1800 mile drive back home.
