So what the hell. Starting tonight, I do believe I'm going to listen to the May 1977 run in its entirety, in order. Might as Well, right?


  1. I have a tendency to avoid the "Donna years" like the plague. lol I know they were playing really well during those years, but I just can't stand her off key howling/wailing, and dont' get me started on "Sunrise". ;p We have over 600 hours of Dead tapes, but the era between late 1973 and mid-79 is quite sparse.

  2. I dig the 70's GD quite a bit, but I have to agree, some of Donna's performances are not my thing.

  3. The 5 Dead shows at The Palladium in April / May of 1977 are legendary.....period, the end.
