Product Description


A Dead show from 1977, Volume 15 of the Dick's Picks live series documents a high-energy affair that delighted 100,000 folks at a New Jersey racetrack. While the routine set list won't turn any heads--the same tunes could've been heard in much the same order 15 years later--the band produces a rather strong effort all the way through. Of particular note are the sharp readings of "Half-Step" and "Music Never Stopped" from the opening set, and the incredibly rousing finale of "Not Fade Away," "Truckin'," and "Terrapin." --Marc Greilsamer

5.0 out of 5 stars How About "Loser?'' May 31 2004
Format:Audio CD
I've got little to add to what's already been written _ in my opinion, this is the best of the 31 Dick's Picks issued so far (and I have about 25 of them).
But I find it interesting that no one has mentioned the Disk 2 version of "Loser,'' one of a half-dozen songs in this concert that are the best live versions I've heard from the dead _ Half-Step, Music Never Stopped, Peggy O, He's Gone among others.
I was at the home of friend who has always disparaged the Dead and slipped the disk onto his very expensive sound system. When he heard the guitar solo on "Loser,'' he flipped. "Is that Garcia?'' he asked. "Yup,'' I replied. "That's the best guitar I've ever heard.''
Me too. I've heard a lot of other versions of the song, including a real bad one on the new Jerry Box Set. I've never heard anything to equal that. In fact, like my friend, I've never heard ANY 45-second guitar solo to equal it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cream of the crop May 12 2004
Format:Audio CD
This is a wonderful show from 1977, my personal favorite year of GD shows. The "Peggy-o" is worth the price of the whole set. Absolutely ASTOUNDING. I also have never heard a more beautiful "Half Step." The only flaw on this set is a sloppy but still enjoyable "He's Gone." 1977 was the year that "Terrapin Station" was new and "Estimated Prophet" and "Terrapin" in this set are played perfectly. God, I wish I could travel back in time and go to this show. With New Riders and The Marshall Tucker Band opening, this would have been an unforgettable experience for me. I urge any Dead fan to buy this, it is great. A treasure.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a MUST buy April 10 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Before i bought this cd i had never listened to the grateful dead before. i listened to these cd's one day in a cd store where you can listen to 30 seconds from each track. Let me tell you i got hooked after that. I bought this show (was my first) now a couple of years later i have well over 100 grateful dead cd's (almost all are live).
After listening to all eras of the dead the year of 1977 is prabably my favorite era. and these cd's are a good representation of that era.
This show is considered to be one of the best live recordings out by the dead and some even consider this to be one of the best concets preformed by the dead.
Even after having many grateful dead cd's this set even though it was my first still remains among one of my favorites.
I would strongly reccomend these cd's for the hardcore grateful dead fan that does not already have it and i would also reccomend them to anyone that is unfimilar with the grateful dead and looking into getting into them. If you are a new listener one thing i can promise you is that this will not be the last live grateful dead album you will buy because it is just that good.

5.0 out of 5 stars third disc is five stars by any measure Oct. 21 2003
Format:Audio CD
Here's the deal. With the reflection of time the DP series has revealed that the Dead were in flames at times during their concerts and at other times merely pedestrian. Even within a single show there were peaks and valleys. The beauty of this is that exploring the DP series for the peaks is a lot of fun (and of course expensive)and right here on disc three you have found a treasure. The four songs of the third disc, He's Gone, NFA, Truckin and Terrapin are excellent, great, and wonderful. He's Gone is at its most gospel here and this arrangement really, really works. The band then goes in to a fantastic rocking and charging 20 minute NFA -- their energy is palpable, and the ten minute version of Truckin, not my favorite of GD songs, is absolutely excellent. They were really trying to deliver to their 100,000 + faithful assembled at the Englishtown, NJ Race Track on this Labor Day weekend in 1977. But to me the absolute highlight is the jazziest, most developed and most awesomely played rendition of Terrapin that I've ever heard. The song, the final encore of the concert, is 11 and half minutes of pure bliss. IMHO disc three is among the best live Dead from the post '74 period that I've ever heard.
Discs one and two are played well enough but suffer from mediocre song selection (thankfully, neither PITB nor Tenn. Jed are present anywhere). Highlights of the first two discs include Miss. Half Step (13+ minutes) Friend of the Devil - Music Never Stopped (15 min) and the excellent Estimated Prophet - Eyes of the World (23 min.). The booklet is very nicely done and overall this is a great DP selection.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty Good Show July 17 2003
Format:Audio CD
It starts off especially well. The "They Love Each Other" and "Mississippi Half-Step Toodle-Oo" are great versions. The set list is pretty good. The show was kind of unique as it was before a huge crowd. All in all good fun.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent example of the '77 sound May 23 2003
Format:Audio CD
i agree with the other reviews that this concert doesn't get the love it so richly deserves. the true gem, i think, is 'He's Gone' on disc 3. that track by itself is worth the price of the cd set. 1977 was a great year for the dead, and gets occasionally ignored, somewhat like 1973 in the wake of the Dead's stellar 1972 campaign. unfortunately, the true gem of 1977 was 5/8/1977 from Cornell U. if you're reading this pondering purchasing vol. 15, without a doubt do so. then, befriend a deadhead and score a copy of 5/8. the two together will keep your ears and imaginations busy for weeks and weeks. you can't go wrong with this cs set.
