For a period of time after these events there were no CD releases. Many of us felt that they were missing a golden opportunity to sell professionally "cleaned-up" versions of Dead shows. Then, something started to happen. The first "Road Trips" series came out - not complete shows, which can be frustrating, but it was something. The quality was spectacular. Finally, Deadheads rejoiced when they began releasing complete shows like the box set of Winterland 1973, Egypt 1978, Hartford 1977 and now this new box set.
Yes, I am happy because they are offering up three shows from Winterland - June 7, 8 & 9 of 1977. What a beautiful thing, wrapped in a gorgeous package to boot. In hindsight, it was worth the wait for the Dead to present us with a really good product. Pre-order this set soon and you'll receive the bonus CD with it. I approve!!!
