WHAT DEAD HEADS HAVE BEEN SAYING ABOUT…

NEW HAVEN 5/5/77
“Here is a prime example of the saying ‘the whole is greater than the sum of the parts’ … It’s called synergy and the Dead wrote the book on it.”

BOSTON 5/7/77
“The music they laid down brought me places I had not been before.”

CORNELL 5/8/77
“…the single best rock performance anywhere, anytime, by anyone.”

“There was just some kind of magical connection this night between the band members and the band and the audience – some texture, or some type of cosmic or celestial force is in the room.”

“This show is, was, and always will be Mecca.”

BUFFALO 5/9/77
“…an awesome display of the Dead’s captivating power”

If you’ve been following this site for quite some time, then you will know we are often flush with hyperbole when it comes to our releases. We can’t help it, really – for we, like you, are Grateful Dead fans above all else. Just like you, we’ve spent countless hours debating the merits of show over show, year over year. We’ve kept a watchful eye on your wish-lists and carefully considered how to make – excuse the clich – your dreams come true. And once we’ve made our commitments, we are steadfast in our determination to conjure up those dreams fully-formed and nearly perfect. Sometimes these heights cannot be reached without physical and cosmic elements aligning, and that, dear friends, is why it has taken so long for us to bring you THE ONE and the epic shows that surrounded it. No need for even the slightest embellishment here, 5/8/77 Barton Hall, Cornell University: Ithaca, NY, has for decades, been THE resounding favorite; you’ve said it yourselves – the “holy grail” of Grateful Dead shows. Thanks to the passion and perseverance of Dead Heads like you, we are beyond pleased to finally be able to present this show and its brethren, the fabled four of Spring ’77, in sonically pristine condition.

MAY 1977: GET SHOWN THE LIGHT is a collection of what is unanimously believed to be the most sought-after previously unreleased complete shows the Grateful Dead ever played. Collected, traded, and debated for decades, “the beloved Golden Trinity” of Boston, Ithaca, and Buffalo, along with their New Haven prelude, have inspired fans to “get on the bus,” converted critics, and even garnered national attention (Cornell was added to the Library of Congress’ National Recording Registry). But until now, you’ve never really heard them quite like this!

The Dead is in the details… how serendipitous is it that the notorious Betty Cantor-Jackson soundboard recordings were returned to the archive just in time for the 40th anniversaries of these shows? Lovingly sourced from these well-reputed recordings, we invite you to experience four utopian shows just like they happened, to “be inside the music” as engineer Betty Cantor-Jackson intended. Whether you listen to each night on its own or imbibe the whole lot at once, we suspect you’ll hear why every note mattered. Much like we were, you will be hard-pressed to determine which of these fine documents – will it be the understated but nuanced New Haven, Boston’s festive fantasy vibes, the monumental catharsis of Ithaca, or Buffalo’s dreamy exuberance – is truly “the best.” Does it really matter? We think not.
