“Yesterday’s Dead Today”, Monday, May 8th, 7-9pm Eastern

Written by on Sunday, May 7, 2023


I’ve seen thousands of reviews over the years, but this actually explains “A Deadhead”…
“REVIEW: stella
As a new fan of the Dead it was years before I realized the importance of the tears streaming down
the face of the girl beside me. She seemed to be having a religious experience. Now I know why”

Grateful Dead
Barton Hall, Cornell University, Ithaca, NY
May 8, 1977
AUD taped by Jerry Moore, 24 bit
sony ecm 33p’s > sony tc-153, maxell udxLII90’s/dolby b > 10.5″ reels
@ 7.5 ips, provides most of the show,
mastering, pitch correction, and seeded by Charlie Miller

“5/8/77” is a very special date in Grateful Dead-dom…millions consider it “The Holy Grail”
of the two thousand of Dead concerts…so much that May 8 is designated “Grateful Dead
Day” in Ithaca! See just one article here:

Myself? I prefer the next day, 5/9, at the War Memorial in Buffalo. NOT because of the
performances in general; they are both fantastic…I much prefer the setlist of 5/9. and like to
think of 5/8 as “the soundcheck”. and, while I have already broadcast the soundboard prior to
the 2017 box-set release, I am not above broadcasting an audience recording of the same
date, especially on such an historic date, and with such a magnificent audience
recording…cheers!

REVIEW: nice spit polish
Very nice upgrade of a (the?) classic show. This is going to replace my earlier AUD in my
collection. Though the sbd was my college soundtrack, I prefer the aud now!

REVIEW: masterful
Dancing In the Streets!!!
Best Scarlet-Fire

REVIEW: It snowed 4 reel
A mere college freshman, I left my finals studies at Bingo behind and hitchhiked with my
buddy Qyr to the Boston garden for 5-7-77, What a kick ass Terrapin! We stuck out our
thumbs the next day and headed for Cornell. Many cars around us skidded off the road from
late season ice. We arrived at Barton hall just in time to meet up with our fellow Bingos. I
had no idea at the time this was such an all time great show. I thought all Dead shows were
like this! We emerged to a snow storm in May. I did well on my finals the next week. I guess
it was meant to be!

REVIEW: …
That Loser solo… oh my god. So good.

REVIEW: This is a great audience source!
Thank you. This patches the SB quite well. Thanks!

REVIEW: Dancing in the STREETS!!!
8 mins into the song, the entire band creates a seminal work of body where members and
audience become one.

REVIEW: One hot show
This whole show is on fire. The Browned Eyed Women is one of the best, and you can’t go
wrong with that Dancin’ in The Streets either. One of my go-to shows if I am ever feelin’
down.

REVIEW: Remastered
thanks to aLL for their efforts. it Sounds just exactly right.
