GRATEFUL DEAD: Dick's Picks Vol. 29 5/19/77 Fox Theatre Atlanta, GA 5/21/77 Lakeland Civic Center Arena Lakeland, FL (6-CD Set):

Start talking tours to any Deadhead you know and just say "Spring '77" chances are a big smile will steal across his or her face. That's because of all the road trips in the Dead's long history, arguably the one that saw the most consistently high level of playing was the Spring '77 tour the band undertook in support of its forthcoming Terrapin Station album. And that's why, out of the 36 volumes in the Dick's Picks series, only one, this one, is a 6-CD set (there isn't even a 5-CD set)! Inside are two complete shows minus one encore (from the Florida show), plus some equally fantastic, unlisted bonus tracks from a 10/11/77 show in Norman,Oklahoma, all impeccably recorded by Betty Cantor-Jackson. Highest among the many highlights from the Fox Theatre show are the version of Sugaree and the incredible segue from Playing in the Band to Uncle John's Band (also don't miss the unbilled, primal version of Not Fade Away). But the Lakeland show just may take the cake two medleys, a breathtaking Scarlet Begonias/Fire on the Mountain and a jaw-dropping Estimated Prophet/He's Gone/Drums/The Other One/Comes a Time/St. Stephen/Not Fade Away/St. Stephen/One More Saturday Night, are the icing. Comes with original slipcased packaging never before available in stores!

I'm talkin' desert island level stuff here!

These two shows make a great addition to the newly released May 1977 box set.
George Torossian
Quite possibly the best Scarlet/Fire the band ever performed.

This used to be the best value pick of the series, but despite the increased price of this reissue, it is still well worth the bucks and I'd buy it again.
Two full shows from May '77 (the date alone confirms the high quality performances) that are well recorded...actually I find there is something a little special about the sound here, I can't quite put my finger on it, but it is possibly the raw feel of it, as these are not the clearest 1977 Dead concert tapes but they are warm and well mixed.
There are so many high points: Another epic and beautiful 'Sugaree' (one of my favorite versions); brilliant, powerful 'Brown-Eyed Woman'; both 'Estimated Prophet's are tremendous; 'Dancing in the Streets' is particularly funky; a thunderous 'The Other One'...the list goes on.
All the ballads are played brilliantly and the jamming is adventurous and coherent; yes, the entrance from 'Playing in the Band' into a high-energy 'Uncle John's Band' into 'Drums' bang into 'The Wheel' drifting into 'China Doll' and finally back into 'Playing in the Band' is a divine, intrepid journey, but it's only part of the iceberg- submerged are treasures to continue discovering and digging for donkey's.
Everyone is in fine form throughout and Jerry just flies over the sound like the supreme cosmic guitar prankster he was.
There are even a few "secret" bonus tracks from October 11 on discs two and five; I don't want to spoil the possible surprise, but I can tell you they are well worth the filling and fit right in on this exquisite six-disc set.
One of the top picks of the series. Blessedly back in print.

Those of us Dead fanatics who didn't have the luxury of following the band from their mid-60's WARLOCKS days all the way to Jerry Garcia's death on Aug. 9th, 1995 due to our age are often known for constantly arguing and speculating on exactly which shows we would go to if we had a time machine. Hell, even older Deadheads who DID get to see the DEAD in some cases hundreds of times(even as far back as the late-60's in some cases)often engage in this ritual. That's why so many of us collect every speck of recorded material we can get our hands on.

Following the explosion of tape trading in the 80's(it didn't start then, but seemed to take off like a rocket during that decade)and the availability of the Betty Boards to the trader-underground(a whole collection of amazingly high-quality soundboard recordings made by DEAD producer/engineer/soundwoman/quality control manager extraordinaire Betty Cantor-Jackson throughout the 70's and 80's), those at GD headquarters decided to created a series of archival releases. This task was given to DEAD taper/archivist/fanatic Dick Latvala(RIP), hence "Dick's Picks". Initially, reviews were mixed as the first volume didn't include the full show but only a portion of it(for Deadheads there's nothing more nerve-racking than an incomplete show). However, as the series progressed many began to see the wisdom of Latvala's thinking as the Dick's Picks series evolved, with some volumes containing portions of a show(or multiple shows, usually from within a day or two of one another) and others containing FULL un-edited(with the exception of removing some of the incessant between song tuning that the DEAD were notorious for) shows. Dick's Picks Volume 29 is an example of the latter.

This was released on the heels of the 10th anniversary of the Dicks Picks series and we were getting ready to hit 30. This was originally released around Christmas time with Grateful Dead - The Closing of Winterland Closing of Winterland: December 31 1978 which made it a rather expensive Christmas having to buy gifts for an ex AND myself, laughs. I had 5-19-77 on tape for decades and had 5-21-77 for almost as long. The first show was the second show of a two night stand at the Fox in Atlanta, GA and the other being from Lakeland Civic Center in Lakeland, FL which is the night before Dick's Picks, Vol. 3: Sportatorium, Pembroke Pines, FL, 5/22/77.

5-19-77 (Thursday):

The first set gets off the a rousing start with a ripping Promised Land before giving way to a killer Sugaree->El Paso. Peggy-O is a pretty number and it's played very sweetly here. Looks Like Rain finds Bob and Donna in good voice backed by some thoughtful playing from the band. Row Jimmy is a song I'm always happy to here and this one doesn't dissappoint. Passenger find Bob and Donna upping the energy with a rocker. Not to be outdone, Jerry returns the play with a soaring solo in Loser. The Dancin' In The Streets would melt the floor at Studio 54.

The second set opens with a rip the roof off Samson And Delilah. Ramble On Rose sounds like a Gypsy caravan and Estimated Prophet is a dark monster. The jam of Terrapin Station->Playing In The Band->Uncle's John's Band->Drums->the Wheel->China Doll->Playing In The Band is quite inspired.

5-21-77 (Saturday):

The first set opens with a great Bertha and is followed by an equally good Me And My Uncle. They Love Each Other is sweet and Cassidy soars. Jack A Roe is done in it's early arrangement and it's one of the better ones to boot.
