Thirty years ago, at the beginning of May 1977, the Dead played a remarkable number of exceptional concerts. In honor of the thirtieth anniversary of this unmatched period in Grateful Dead history I decided to bring you one of, if not the most famous concert of May, 1977. The Dead's performance on May 8th, 1977 is widely regarded as one of the best of this series of shows. While I often prefer to bring you less well-known shows, there's also nothing wrong with listening to one of these truly classic shows on occasion. I hope you enjoy it..
