Limited Edition' Individually-Numbered' CD Set (of # 20,000) : 1977' Prime-Era! In San Bernardino, California -- simply Breathtaking!
Dead Show - of 1977!!!!! As 2019 now officially marks the Year, in which... - has been pro-released straight from The Vault!! An event pretty much worthy of calendar type Annual-Holiday! An event in which we all hoped for (some in dire fashion) for a various period of long-duration...
For the last 40+ years!! As I personally have been hoping for this one to sound' like-this! Since the Late-'80's Era, when I first found it - or, you know... As this Show is without any shadow of a Deadhead doubt - a sheer Life-Changer! " - and that too is even applied directly in "'77 Dead!
So, at least for me - this release is a true' Dream-Come-True! I got this one in tape trading myself, way-early in the game for me (like most Fans, or at least I'd assume) - and it was upon a direct Taper recommendation too Rightfully!- and it actually came from real-close to the Swing itself, just a fairly good stones through away from San Bernardino, California - somewhere on the Burning-Shore! With just the First 1st! - it was a clear no-brainer to add, lay down on an XL-II-S - pop the tabs, spin the deck... My first memories stay the exact-same when hearing the Pristine! Sound-quality, as they were originally over 30-Years Ago!
- and, here's just what I thought then, and just what I'm still! Thinking now --- I mean...Can you just even try to Imagine! Those' Faces' on the Crowd! -- when their Beloved-Band opens up This-Show... And yeah - let's not forget about the Estimated Prophet!!! Just 3-Songs later - in the 1st Set!! Though maybe not quite the same-degree, or same-league as the' Faces' just must have been - at say... The Great American Music Hall! (which really, could truly be' unmatched' in the Mid-Late-'70's' Post-Hiatus' Era) - but, it's just still gotta-be darn close! Just put into serious perspective the degree of unexpected change the Dead Fans were dealing with in the Summer'75 through Spring'77 period & Era - which, in the long & short of it - is All!'77 Swing Show up against the 8/13/75's of the Deadhead World - as far as Surprise!
& a new-look at the Bag of Tricks! " to come - we've just no choice but to Zone-In directly on " Terrapin Station!!! As I'm going all the way here, and straight for the DeadheadHeart! -- as this tune was, is & will always be one-of (if not' the') - Finest!! Of all of the Garcia/Hunter compositions of All-Time!I mean here is the' Very-1st! - and just look, feel & hear what this-one meant! And then, the Band plays this Tune as a Live 2nd Set' Staple' close to? I'd say like maybe something like - 325 More-Times? (give or take) - from 1977 to 1995! It's the stand-alone Favorite! Dead-Song of so incredibly-many Deadheads that I've personally encountered (from pretty much' Everywhere') over the years & years. And, though it might not-quite have a technical' Slipknot! Type run or rally on its inside, to put it at the top of the Dead Song Deck - as far as the' technical' aspect goes... Its chord changes & song writing are straight-up Pure-Genius! - and, it's truly one of Jerry's go-to strengths that puts this extremely-complex song way over the top... - and where really is there a better time & place to channel a whole entire gamut of emotions - than during... But, no worries here on either front - as there is a Smoker!! Inside this 2/26/77 Swing Show too - naturally, right? - on a'77 Dead-Night like this one! But, just in case you have any question if' Terrapin! In the next say 10, 12, 15 years Post-'77 Dead... Well, that's as easy as pie... So, just make it real-simple on yourself -- & go straight-to 7/13/89 RFK!!! Where Garcia delivers & belts-out! In a Rainy & Drenched way-drenched... It was, is & always was & will always be... Such an incredibly' Cornerstone' piece to the entire Grateful Dead' Live-Magic! Puzzle - and here on 2/26/77 in California! - the Ultra-Lucky Deadheads are treated to the Very-1st!! And, just as one might even well-expect - it sure is' special' - just like you would hope - when' Terrapin Station! Then scores right-up on the Burning-Shore! Just 3-Songs later, with a Extra-Juicy! Playin' > Wheel > Playin' right around the corner still 1st Set! - and it sure is ON!! Just another one of those Inexplicably-Awesome! Even needs any help from anyone. Dead Shows of all-of the 1977 Touring-Year!
