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

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.

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.

There are over 50 live Grateful Dead albums to choose from. There are a number that I would get before this one. I don't know why it is necessary to release complete concerts. They played over a 100 shows a year. Every show had hits and misses. Sometimes the first set could be just down right boring. It would be better to have a greatest hits compilation of certain tours.
What is worse about this set is that it is the COMPLETE concert, including all the talking and gaps between songs. It even starts out with the band introductions. Especially on the first set, the Dead could take along time between songs, while they tuned instruments or discussed what to play next. It is all included here.
This is the complete concert. The first disc is over 70 minutes long. The second and third are around 50 minutes, for a running time of nearly 3 hours. The sound quality is very good.
The songs on the first two discs are nothing special. They have been done before and have been done better. There are versions of Estimated Profit where Garia's guitar just explodes out of the speakers. I have heard much livelier versions of Good Loving. The slow version of Friend of the Devil has been done many times before.
The two real treasures on this album are on the third disc. There is a great He's Gone, with a fantastic, almost gospel ending, moving into one the best versions of Not Fade Away that I have ever heard. It is followed by a fairly good, but not the best verions of Truckin. At least Wier doesn't spit out the words like he has done on other albums.
It ends with a real boring version of Terrapin Station. I actually haven't heard a live version of Terrapin Station that I have liked, but I keep looking.

I have never criticized a show as much as this one but it almost falls into the mediocre category.
Yes it was high energy as have been many east coast shows. There were like 80.000 or 100.000 people there. Some of the PA towers almost fell because of not very consciensious fans.
The dead played an awesome set (two that is). The first, pretty standard to my liking. The second one to live for 100 years at least. I m a very critical person when it comes to music. And I have to differ w D. Latvala himself in saying that '77 was the best year they ever played. it was a good year but not the best. I think this group s music should be seen as the years gone by were good , and not try to say that one was better than then other. There are shows form the 80 s or 60 s that blow away some from '77 (lots). Now, I know that Dick is listening to me here do a healthy critic of 1977, but let s not over rate it. After all this isn t the best band in the world or never was. There are others that surpass the Dead in musicianship and creativity. But the dead were pioneers and one of the few that were graced w the power of playing OK music, that on some nights was just downright very good.
A devoted fan to this band
