On the'76 Fall Tour!! " Call " straight-from the cherished Vault here folks! The Grateful Dead only graced William & Mary College four (4) times ever... And fittingly, due to the actual size of this relatively intimate Venue - the final show that took place in 1978 was indeed all she wrote.Ahhhhh yes - the " Small-College Circuit Days "! I myself even at one time lived in Southern Virginia for a short while, and if you have ever been to either William & Mary and/or the rustic-Historic city of Williamsburg... Then you have a nice-handle of just how Sweet! This town would have been for the road touring Dead-Faithful to descend upon - and... Especially in the Mid-'70's! Well, the Band pretty much struck Live-Gold! At every show they played at William & Mary through the years (9/11/73 - 9/12/73 - 9/24/76 - 4/15/78) - and I certainly pride myself on the fact that I have indeed heard every note of these fine'70's Shows! Even though yes, it did require listening to a few " raspy " (at best) audience recordings originally in the Late'80's & Early'90's. Well, this remastering job is Pristine! As you just might expect with this growing " Dave's Picks " Series... Then you have already been fortunate enough to hear the Playin' > Supplication > Playin' throw-down that is included on Disc 2 of this Set! This is Big-Time Late-'76 G. Here, no doubt - and it really does show where'77 was headed. To me & my ears, you get a little more of the up-beat & jumpy'within' the smooth... Where as by the time Spring of'77 rolled around, you got a little more of the silky-smooth, way far-out & pretty much Galactic! Strong 1st Set material worthy of noting in the forms of Deal - Cassidy - Sugaree - & Big River. And the Set 2 stuff just gets off-the-charts - and indeed makes this pro-release a must-have in my humble Dead Fan opinion... The Playin' > Supplication > Playin' (as mentioned) - Samson - Loser, and of course Help > Slip!
> Franklin's > Drums > Slip! It should also be noted that the Stella Blue is especially pretty, as Garcia certainly digs real-deep. Both the Around & U. Blues deliver some nice hot-pop for the outro, definitely allowing the Deadhead / College! Crowd to walk-off campus feeling just-fine!!
And, last but not least..... One of the most-vital reasons to hear & own this one is very simple - so, I hope this serves as a friendly reminder! This is indeed " The Show " that happened the night-before the Legendary 9/25/76 Cap Centre MD!Night, and just 4-nights before the Massive 9/28/76 Syracuse (NY) Show! So now you can see where I'm heading here, right? If you loved Dick's Picks 20 - just as much (or even more) than the rest of us... Need to capture this 9/24/76 William & Mary release as it was indeed the' Alpha' to these other familiar two' Omegas' on this Lightning-Hot! Fall Tour 1976 East Coast run. You've got to hear my Supplication!!!!!! Smokin'-Hot'76 Grateful Dead... Right inside the' Home-Turf' of the William & Mary " Griffin "!!! Classsssic Mid-'70's Live-Dead!
