Even the cd trays are nice and snug like a brand new Daves Picks. Once you are in the inside of this case, it might as well have just been opened. But the outside of the cases edges and corners have some definite wear.

Chances are if youre a Dead Head youre already well-versed in the glorious spring of 1977. Back a year since their mid-70s performing hiatus, and fresh from recording their Terrapin Station album in L.There were fantastic new songs (including the Terrapin Station suite, Estimated Prophet and Fire on the Mountain) and their older tunes seemed imbued with new vigor and vitality. Every stop of the tour, which stretched from the third week of April (beginning at the Spectrum in Philadelphia) through the first week in June (back at Winterland in San Francisco), presented some new wrinkle or interesting variation on the repertoire, as songs were moved around, unusual combinations were explored and the septet continue to solidify and mature. Which is a fancy way of saying the band was on fireysee, theres a reason why this is the ninth show from that tour to be released! The song list from 5/25/77 might not reveal much out of the ordinary for May 77 (though its a great selection of tunes), but the playing is definitely extraordinary. The first set contains outstanding versions of favorites such as Mississippi Half-Step, Jack Straw, Cassidy and Lazy Lightning > Supplication.
And the second set is primo-grade 77 from start to finish. The buoyant Scarlet Begonias > Fire on the Mountain that kicks things off sets the tone, but then the rest of the set is a deftly played medley starting with Estimated and moving into Hes Gone, a primal drum workout from Mickey and Bill, a heart-pounding version of The Other One thats split by Wharf Rat (the only time those songs were played in that sequence), a joyful Wheel, and then a double-dose of Chuck Berry to bring it all back to rock n roll bliss.Talk about a thrill ride! The cover art, by Scott McDougall, depicts the hands of two skeletons in outer space, with clashing drumsticks that resemble lightsabers. This is a nod to the film Star Wars, which was released the same date that the concert was recorded.
