Winterland, San Francisco, CA
June 7, 1977
AUD, Likely: MAR > Reel > DAT > CDs
It is very difficult for me to fulfill a request for a certain Grateful Dead concert date, because said
date needs to come around on a Monday. That being said, it has happened in the past, and happens
My buddy, Larry(now in Binghamton) turned me on to fly fishing for trout, Hendrix, and the Dead.
He mentioned a couple of weeks ago that he had heard some of 6/7/77 and wondered if I had
broadcast it. Nope, since it was released as “Winterland June 1977: The Complete Recordings “
(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Winterland_June_1977:_The_Complete_Recordings), and I don’t
broadcast commercially-released material. I checked the calendar, and since this date DOES fall on a
Monday, and I have this fine audience recording(and I am not above broadcasting audience or FM
recordings of commercially-released material), here we go!
Disc 1 – Set 1:
2. Jack Straw
3. Tennessee Jed
4. Looks Like Rain
6. Finiculi Finicula
7. El Paso
8. Friend Of The Devil
9. The Music Never Stopped
Disc 2 – Set 2:
1. Scarlet Begonias >
2. Fire on the Mountain >
3. Good Lovin’
5. Estimated Prophet >
6. He’s Gone >
7. Drums > Samson & Delilah
Disc 3 – Set 2 cont’d.:
1. Terrapin Station >
2. Morning Dew >
3. Around & Around
4. Uncle John’s Band
5. U.S. Blues
There are no reviews of this particular recording, and there are scant few of others:
REVIEW: First set magic
The LLRain is probably my favorite form 77, and the Peggy-O that follows is equally as powerful.
Friend of the Devil showcases very beautiful vocals from Jerry.
REVIEW: Terrapin>AM Dew
I havent heard the folowwing two nights but this show is a killer!!! 1st set is standard 77, no
complaints though. Second set gem Terrapin>Am Dew!!! Not the transition one would hope for but
killer nonetheless. The last three songs would make anyone get up and dance. Decent sound/energy
I can’t think of many better second sets and no better Terrapin > Morning Dew exists.
REVIEW: Great Show That Is Overlooked! ? !
This is a great show at Winterland, Check it out.
REVIEW: top shelf Morning Dew
This my favorite Morning Dew of all time. Surpassing the 5/8/77 among others. The vocals have
minor flaws, but the emotion of the vocals, the strength of the mid song jam and the ridiculous
crescendo jam make this the #1 Dew of ALL TIME! The only thing that would have made the
moment better is if the show ended with the Dew and they didnt segue into the Around and Around.
5 star Dew!
REVIEW: i just found my new and permanent
favorite show of all time. and i’ve only listened to about 3 minutes of bertha.
REVIEW: winterland forever
Jerry’s phrasing at the end of Music Never Stopped is uncanny & a tremendous Morning Dew better
than than 5/8/77
REVIEW: one of the best second sets played by the boyz
In my opinion, the first set is a snoozer with the exception of TMNS which is a scorcher. The second
set, however, is excellent top to bottom, with my favorite bits being Drums > Samson and the
Terrapin > Dew. Five star second set, 3 star first so 4 overall.
Again, you get the picture…
