Wow, a hidden jem, and I am the first to comment on it. Get this show off the archives, its amazing. Ive never read much on this baby, and it seems not to many people understand what their missing out on. This show has a certain aura to it which is otherworldly. Its more reminicent of a November 73' show than a 77 show, yet the setlist is unmistakably 77 dead. Check it out, its bizzare to say the least, but this show is in a leauge of its own...peace
-Dr. Egotrip

There isn't much '73 in this show. The first set has at least four songs that didn't even exist in '73 (Estimated, Scarlet, Cassidy, Peggy-O (first played in Dec '93). Second set starts off with Samson and Delilah, probably the most common second set opener in '77. Show ends with Terrapin Station, just brought out earlier that year. Not sure what you are talking about. But I still bet it's a pretty good show.

Steve, I think that Dr. Egotrip was commenting on the flow of the music and the style of jamming as being similar to a '73 show, but I'm just guessing.

I think that the show sounds wonderful and am glad to have it!

Stella Blue-last played 10.10.76

I'm loving the spooky and spaced-out qualities of the keyboards and the general flow of music here. It's quite wonderful. A great show. I just wish I could find a copy that contains more audience sounds - I really love that aspect of shows.

Yes I think that the "flow" of '73 is present here. Dr. Egotrip stated that the set list was very '77 but the quality of jamming was reminiscent of a '73 show. The Dead entered a new dimension in the summer of '73 that led to the psychedelic explosion of '74, but as that sound was still being born, the band retained the tightness of '72. Noodling is best when it is focused and inspired. I would rather hear a 11:00 Eyes of the World that is truly defined rather than 28 minutes of repetitive soloing. Thats why I love '77 so much! The band did the long jams that were totally captivating the whole way through! This show is great, but still just a taste of what was to come in May! Love the Terrapin!

first post-hiatus "beat it on down the line." also the only played in '77.

Listening to this on XM/Sirius right now. Such a smooth, funky groove on the Estimated Prophet. Same with Deal. Not over the top rocker on either one ... just like psychedelic butter melting.
-Steve (10/02/2012)

listening to this show now as well. the jams are so smooth, and seamless! love '77!

Terrapin STation-6th time played...simply perfect
-Brianmerrilyn (10/20/2012)

These first 5 shows of '77 are all off the charts good.

Darkstar orch. Covered this in Dillion Co over the past weekend so I brought it back out.
What a treat, this was spring before my first show and it is a psychedelic masterpiece.
I think 76' had teases but this was the birth of the GD I jumped on the Bus fore.
-Buscameby (07/09/2014)

This version of Row Jimmy might have been sent from the heavens. The solo leading to "broken heart don't feel so bad" is insane.

Great show! Great version of some of favorite tunes. Very nice Stella!

-Ryabad (02/13/2019)

... thank you Sirius for playing 3/20/1977 @ the Winterland in San Francisco CA for us today on the the Noon hour ...

IKO IKO on & on .......

Dr egotrip is right. Definitely a ‘73 “calm before the storm” (as I would call it) vibe. Like, you know damn well what it’s gonna become (like listening to a ‘73 knowing what’s around the corner). Especially this Other One. I mean dayum. They really just fiddling around with what the song would become… just trying to see what speaks to them before going full bore into the next embodiment of it. Absolutely beautiful.

Also… wonder why they only played beat it once in 77. It was fun to head none the less.
