One of the best shows from one of the best years. Great version of this on

really good 'mississippi toodleoo'

Donna was feeling it in Scarlet Fire!

My god they were on fire that night. This is one of the best shows ever may of 77 is so sweet. "let the words be yours i am done with mine"

Peggy-O/Cassidy paring is my favorite 1st set ballads.
TO1>Wharf Rat>TO1>Wheel
Just when I thought i'd heard all sorts of different combo's the boys prove me wrong. Many thanks!

He's Gone-long top notch blues solo
-Brianmerrilyn (06/13/2007)

One of the most underrated shows in the band's history, and one of my top 10 shows ever. Every song is blazing and has that special '77 "exactly perfect" feel. 1977 was the best year for Half-Step, one of my favorite tunes. Highlights:

Set 1
Jack Straw

Set 2
From Scarlet -> Fire through The Wheel

Dig the Charlie Miller remaster on Archive, then pass it along to a friend.
-Ed (06/15/2010)

Yup - Charlie Miller's remaster of this show is great. A favorite show from a month of favorite shows. How can you pick one? This one is somewhat underrated and is a terrific show. Highlights for me - Half Step, TLEO, Lazy/Supp and the entire 2nd step.

How can I get my hands on a copy of this?

buy the upcoming Dave's Picks, the first in a series of releases personally selected by David Lemieux, in February 2012.

Anonymous works for either Rhino or
-Faustus (11/08/2011)

Hey Faustus, maybe Anon is simply suggesting that jazzed listeners do the right thing: If you _really_ dig the show, buy a real copy.

And no, I don't work for, or Rhino. Frankly, they get about as much wrong as they do right.

-Mike Nomad (12/13/2011)

Real nice Brown Eyed Women
-rmd (02/07/2012)

This is my top 5 of all time, 5/21 still my number one with 5/8 two but this has Mississippi and my fave Fire. I agree how can you pick one?? It did get bluesy this night and Donna is a big plus, Jerrys voice on TLEO is so smooth, and a 13 min Hes Gone

This is the set that turned me on to the Dead. Well this and Europe 72.
-Jubei (07/24/2012)

Hey, nomad, buying an official release is not the "right" thing. Don't chastize Faustus just because he knows an advertisement when he sees it and your blinded by personal bias. Don't pay money for something that has been and was always supposed to be free. The culture of the tapers should not die off because some company decided they have sole right to a piecve of history. it's the same bullshit as when MJ bought the rights to the beatles music. If i have my way in the future, shows like this will be available to everyone for free in the same if not better quality then the the official releases. If Jerry hadn't had his ash spread all over the waters of San Fran and India, he'd be rolling over in his grave. The agreement with the tapers was that once the music left their fingers it was everyones to enjoy, as long as you didn't profit. So where the hell do the surviving members get off slapping everyone who believes that in the face. It's a travesty that idiots still pay. The only reason for the original Dick's Picks was that there was no public Archive, so he did what he could. The releases were supposed to stop after he died but they didn't. Then when a group of tapers and mixers released their collections for free download on, Bob Weir was afraid of loosing money on official releases, so he blocked them all from download. Eventually there was an agreement made that he couldn't tell people what to do with their own AUD tapes, but the SBD were still technically GD intellectual property. all profiteering bullshit. The guys made their money from the shows they played, STOP trying to squeeze every penny to death. Especially this show, considering it's the blueprint for every show from 79 to the end. The original show that the future set progressings would eventually be based off of. this show is historic, and shame on any fool who would tell someone their doing something wrong by getting this show by traditional means. you have no idea what this culture was about. Go be a hipster somewhere else.

^ unnecessarily harsh
-Anonymous (03/07/2015)

Wow, I was just about to agree with ^^ about how buying an official vault release is not necessarily the "right" thing to do - Agreed, with live Dead shows there's absolutely no foul in acquiring yourself a free (gifted, traded, downloaded) copy for your own enjoyment. But then, dude went all bitter and negative. Ain't no time to hate, brother (or sister).

And I agree with the posters who said this is an underrated May 77 show. It's great - give it a listen.

Maybe they wanted to hear the sound of one hand clapping...
