    Classic Dead Live

    Cover label states "Holy Grail of all Dead Shows" or something like that. I disagree. There are a few Dick's Picks that I feel are better live recordings. The acoustics on this 3-CD set are fair compared to other recordings. Granted the year is 1977 and digital has not been accepted as an audio format. However Garcia's guitar is incredibly focused during this show. The set selection is interesting because the Dead play a number of solo Garcia tunes (Deal, Loser, They Love Each Other) and one from Bob Weir's Kingfish (Lazy Lightning). The discs don't contain the encore to the show, unless it is out of sequential order. Good to have this to add to the collection.

    This concert from Cornell University on May 8, 1977 has been rated by Deadheads and reviewers as possibly the best Greatful Dead concert of all time. They may be right. This is an excellent concert that has finally been released after 40 years. It does not disappoint. Every Deadhead is in Dead heaven. Highly recommended to the casual or curious Dead fans. True Deadheads have known about this concert for years and are GREATFUL that it has finally been released. ENJOY!

    I've been looking forward to hearing this show since I saw it was getting released a couple of months ago. Cornell 77 does not disappoint! Great set list of classic Dead tracks, great sound quality, and released just in time for the beginning of summer. Perfect soundtrack to sit outside and feel the sun on your face. Enjoy!

    In my opinion this is one of the Dead's greatest shows because Jerry plays phenomenal lead guitar at this show. Not one mistake. He's flying baby. Dead with Keith and Donna or Pigpen that's my favorite incarnation of the band. Brent Mydland? not so much, a bargain basement Michael McDonald. His songwriting sucked too.

    A Must for any Deadhead

    I do not consider myself a huge fan, but I'm very interested in what this band is about. This album blew me away. Long 3 cd set, but totally worth it. The booklet that comes with the CD is very informative about what this live show is all about. I'm still not a Deadhead, but maybe a little closer.

    I am recently interested in the Dead, but not a fanatic. Apparently the best live you can get by them. I wish the recording was a little more robust, but it is what it is. Good selection. I don't have the breadth of knowledge to compare to the tape traders, but not bad for starting point.

    This latest release of the highly coveted May '77 concerts is a must have for any DeadHead. This is by far, one of the best shows they ever performed. Grate recording, grate packaging...Grateful Dead.

    A Must Have!

    In the realm of all things possible, choosing one definitive Grateful Dead concert is not a possibility. With that being said, Cornell 5/8/77 is near the top and is a must listen by Dead fans and Dead Heads alike.
