GRATEFUL DEAD - Ithaca, NY 1977

The Dead are touring again, and I'll be seeing them here at the Fabulous Forum in a couple weeks, thanks to the kind veggie burrito-ness of a good friend and supporter of the Chick...

So why not post another fine candidate for Best Show Ever, the monumental concert at Cornell U. (my dad's alma mater) from the legendary Spring '77 tour?

Of course, this is a bootleg that even casual Deadheads already have. If you ain't hip, then the recent New York Times article on Dead boot history will tell you more; also check out the 'Head reaction to the piece here and here.

Meantime, enjoy '77 Dead at its finest, and see you on the road, braaah...

Hey now back! Thanks for stopping by --

Yes, I wanted to see Furthur last time at the Greek here in L.A., but didn't make it. I vow to get there next time -- wasn't blown away by The Dead at the Forum in 2009, but I hear Furthur has a bit more mojo these daze...

Cheers Ned!
