Dave’s Picks Vol. 41

There’s still plenty of spectacular May ’77 to go around. Nearly chosen for Dave’s Picks Vol. 1, 5/26/77 delivers three-fold. There’s one count for the energy – all the precision of the Spring tour conjuring up the raw power of the Fall tour that was to come. There’s another for the setlist which featured beloved songs from Workingman’s Dead and soon-to-be favorites from the freshly recorded Terrapin Station. And a third for its element of surprise (or shall we say surprises) from an astonishingly peak 15-minute “Sugaree” to new delights (Sunrise, Passenger, Jack-A-Roe’) to a rare first-set finale of Bertha to the second set’s Terrapin > Estimated > Eyes, traveling leaps and bounds towards the improvisational journey that is a nearly 17-minute Not Fade Away.

    Definitely a show worthy of official release. Haven’t spun this date in a long time and am rectifying that right now.

    Thanks as always Bufford!

    Right on, thank you for the share. Gave it a play yesterday. Haven’t heard this show in quite a while, that is some spectacular Sugaree. And those Jack-A-Roe’s from this tour, ::chefs kiss::

      + 1 Astro on those Jack-A-Roe’s from this era – imo the very best versions! They just have this gorgeous sort of “gallup” to them :heart:
