Grateful Dead Download Series Volume 1
4/30/1977 Palladium - New York, NY
- The second night of a 5 night run at New York's Palladium
- Filler from 4/29/77 Palladium, New York, NY
Highlights are plentiful, with a strong first set ending with "Mississippi Half-Step" and "Promised Land" and a second set featuring a massive "Scarlet > Fire," and a closing jam of "St. Stephen > Not Fade Away > Stella Blue > St. Stephen" with a "Terrapin Station" encore to top it off.
In addition, the bonus material from the night before (4/29/77) includes a typically strong-for-1977 "Sugaree" and the once-only combination of "Scarlet Begonias > Goin' Down The Road Feeling Bad."
Mastered in HDCD from original 2-track soundboard tapes with the usual care given to Dick's Picks by Jeffrey Norman, 4/30/77 begins what we expect will be a long and exciting series of Download exclusives.
