“It is said that, if you lined up all those who have ever been to a Grateful Dead concert head-to-toe, the line would stretch around the moon, and about halfway back. And nobody would complain!”
WSLR is slowly coming back with a very sparse number of live studio programmers, albeit with very specificinstructions as to how to protect both ourselves and our fellow WSLR volunteers.
One of my hard-and-fast rules is that I never broadcast commercially-released material(with a very tiny numberof “mishaps”…). Such would normally be the case with this evening’s broadcast. The three-evening set entitled“Winterland June 1977: The Complete Recordings ” is commercially available. However, that being said, here isan excellent audience recording, courtesy of three sound masters:

There are no reviews of this particular recording, but there are ample from others:REVIEW: It Was Great — Ev’ry NoteI was an attendee. In performance, there was no letdown from night to night. This recording reveals all. 7 of 5 stars!
REVIEW: Good sound, great energyGood sounding AUD source, captures the energy of the band, and audience nicely.
REVIEW: GreatListening to this, I see it has no reviews, know this a Dead release, but this sounds nice. ‘77 was a great year forthe Dead. They were tight, hot and sounded like they were having fun. This was part off so far 3 box sets fromthis year.
REVIEW: My babyI had an AUD tape when I was a pup, and while it’s a AUD in a sea of betty boards, it’s not bad sounding andgreat to hear the crowd response, particularly on NFA, GDTRFB and JBG, and there’s even a little low end onit. I don’t know if that GDTRFB is rated, but damn it is so frickin hot! I love the mid/late 70s versions of thissong.
REVIEW: This is a Gem!!Beautiful. The music is beautifully played and, Donna’s harmonies w/ the Boys is among the best I’ve heard.Also, check the little guitar “twist” toward the beginning of Estimated.
REVIEW: Great Run!A fine cap to the superlative spring tour of 1977. Always find myself coming back to these shows everyspring/summer
REVIEW: sugareehands down one of, if not the greatest sugaree, i was only 7, it was my birthday, why the hell wasnt i theremom??
