    Scarlet-Fire from 5/8/77 is probably my favorite version.

    Gotta say tho, thanks to a friends crazy GD obsession years ago 73' has my most fave shows. Lincoln Nebraska was a great one, and pretty close to Omahaaudio!

    Ask your doctor if lobotomy is for you.
    I was perusing the plethora of complete GD concerts on YouTube the other day and ran across this. I've been to countless shows and been exposed to more countless recordings but this particular show seems exceptional. Jerry appears healthy and he is smiling and laughing. Talk about firing on all cylinders. I think it's better than the the "Trucking up to Buffalo" from a couple of weeks prior to this.

    I wasn't there but my wife was and she says it's her favorite show. According to her, the whole scene, not just the music, was really happening for that show.

    I was there. THe whole run incredible. The scene was great too except that it poured for 3 days straight and walking to the van after one of the nights my shoes were sucked off my feet never to be seen again.

    I mean rain like you never see.

    I was there. It was in my top 2 or 3 shows I ever saw, including the Warlocks at Hampton Roads.

    I lost my shoes, too.

    Travis Bean through a twin was Jerry's basic rig right? Sounds awesome, the metal neck gives a unique tone.

    YOU WIN!

    I did not get on the bus until '90, but that's better than never getting on!

    I listen to most of 5-8-77 at least once a week. Jon, you were so lucky to have been there.
    On occasions such as that there was most usually romance later that night in the air. Those were interesting times to be growing up.

    Of all the good and bad things about TGP. The love for the Grateful Dead is the best!

    I may have a line on a Santa Clara ticket for myself. Ill be pretty happy if it comes thru. :)

    I was in Ithaca about 20 years ago for a gig, and during some down time I strolled up to Barton Hall and just stood in the middle of the room imagining what had gone down there when I was 7 years old.

    5/8/77 is not my favorite show as far as 'exploration' is concerned, but man they were truly in the zone that day.

    Hey Jon if you have time to share about that day at Cornel I would absolutely love to hear about it. Did you know after you had witnessed such a legendary show? What was the scene like?

    True! I didn't see shows until the 80's (1st in 1983), but feel fortunate to have seen them at Frost (Stanford campus), Henry Kaiser in Oakland, and a NYE run in SF @ the Civic auditorium. Would have loved to have seen some of those 70's shows.
