killer estimated

A NFA to remember! 17 Min. of pure bliss!

one of the all time MONSTER Sugaree's!!
nearly 20 minutes and not one note wasted...beautiful!! the whole show is special!

This show rocks!!!! Every song is executed well. Estimated>Playin'>Terrapin is out of hand. Damn I love this sh**. Peace.

damn grateful show.. set I is typical but being the month of May in 1977 it is played very well. Sugaree is the very best ever played by the dead. Set II is mind-blowing. Get this one if you can..enjoy :^))

didn't make the show, but one hell of a SUGAREE. absolutely mind blowing!

1977...the year that just doesn't seem to stop giving back. May in particular is some of the best music the Dead have ever played. This second set is the heat... Estimated> Playin'> Terrapin is spectacular, as well as a stong post- Drums finish (NFA at about 15 minutes, a beautiful Wharf Rat as well). The first set does not disappoint, either; the MONSTER Sugaree rocks all 20 minutes of its playing, and Brown-Eyed Women smokes. Get this if you know what's good for you...

NFA-One of the most mellowist versions I have ever heard. I rocked my buddy's baby girl, Caylee Renee to sleep by slowly boucin' to the relaxed beat. 17 minutes does the trick.


this show will be released in april 2009 as "To Terrapin" on rhino, check out

I agree with Driscoll.
This Estimated confirmed my need to become a deadhead.

Great show, great Sugaree, great great Estimated. Have a grateful day!

-Adam (10/27/2009)

the growl that jerry gives out on estimated right before bob begins the first verse just makes the song
-Anonymous (11/23/2009)

Besides the kickass Sugaree, this is the day the lovely Elizabeth Hasselbeck was born. She's a hottie for sure, even if her pro-life stance is a bit conservative.

I'd hit it.

Pro-Life for the fucking win.

That said, this is as good as estimated's get
-Anonymous (05/15/2010)

Great show! Gets a lot of play lately. My favorite Sugaree. Jerry art. Official Dead release sounds wonderful. I prefer the higher energy NFA's from 5/8 and 5/9 to 5/28. I'm not complaining though.
-Doug (11/02/2010)

i love how this show was released as "to terrapin" and yet the terp they played this night is kinda mediocre.

-Anonymous (05/28/2011)

Mediocre Terrapin? No way. Even if it's not the best version of that tune, it's part of one of the great second set jams of '77, from Estimated through Playin' reprise.
The official release is called "To Terrapin" because they hadn't yet released the album.
-A. Nonymous (08/23/2011)

Drums between terrapin and NFA
-Anonymous (04/03/2012)

I imagine we have our first Elizabeth Hasselbeck reference. Thank you Jack Straw for the laugh out loud

- (05/28/2012)

Why the fuck are we talking about Hasselbeck on a Grateful Dead page? Are you guys high?
-Anonymous (07/16/2013)

Why would you ask that question? Unless you seriously don't know the answer... in which case, go smoke a bowl.
-Anonymous (12/31/2013)

... indeed, once again, sublime !

anyone know what guitar jerry played during this? Tiger? Thanks
- (10/14/2020)

in all likelihood, the show features Jerry playing a Travis Bean guitar.
-Just Exactly Perfect Band (10/16/2020)

Have loved this show since first listening to CDs when officially released. Just looking at setlists/trends and this was the ONLY candyman of the famed may 77 Tour and first of the year...
- (11/04/2020)

They followed up and played Candyman in LA and 2x at Winterland for the following weeks west coast finish but first Candyman since 10.2.76... almost 8 months. And its stunning.
-Merle Haggard (11/04/2020)

-Chris (05/28/2021)

The New England Fiddle Contest was that afternoon at Bushnell Park. We hung out in the sun listening to music all day and then walked over to the Civic Center for the show that night.
