  • The Grateful Dead played more than 2,000 concerts, but none continues to spark interest and provoke discussion quite like the band’s performance at Cornell University’s Barton Hall on May 8, 1977. It is one of the most collected, traded, and debated concerts by any band ever, has topped numerous fan polls through the years, and was a favorite of the group’s longtime archivist Dick Latvala, who stated: Enough can’t be said about this superb show. Even Uncle Sam got into the act in 2011 when the recording was deemed so important to the history and culture of the United States that a copy was added to the Library of Congress’ National Recording Registry.

"The debate will live on, but the Dancing in the Streets has to be the definition of “in the pocket”. I must have listened to that track 300 times in my life"

"For sure a must listen, but I just honestly don't see what the hype is over this show man, besides having a favorite Brown Eyed, I feel like every other show in 77' was just as good man, a couple a little better actually in my opinion. But still no doubt worth the download man, so go ahead an do that. "
