May 1977 Special
Join Grateful Dead archivist and SiriusXM host David Lemieux as he presents a 90-minute special spotlighting the Dead’s brand new MAY 1977 boxed set, featuring live performances from an incredible springtime run by the band. The limited-edition, 14-disc boxed set consists of five complete shows from consecutive stops on that magical tour, and David will play a sampling from each show!
Each of these shows finds the Dead delivering punchier, more focused sets, tightening up the framework; each night turning out first-ever renditions, unloading potent new pairings, classic covers and soon-to-be staples. The resulting performances represent a high-water mark in the Grateful Dead's long strange trip.
