TGDH: Grateful Dead Live at Community War Memorial Auditorium on 11-5-1977

Welcome back, and Today in Grateful Dead History we bring you another tight 1977 show from November 5 at the Community War Memorial Auditorium in Rochester NY. The mix puts you right in the audience. Let’s talk show highlights. Set One has a Half Step that drives into a soulful Rio Grand-E-O section that builds and builds – Jerry launching into an “Across!” that takes us on a riverboat ride to the other side. The first set ends with an always up-tempo deal with some lyrical jamming (and Donna is on) that leaves us waiting for more.

Set Two kicks off with a Phil Jam and then Eyes. Let’s point out that this Eyes has a completely different feel from the show from 11-4-19 77 (the day earlier) which was a fast and almost marching pace. Today’s version is in the Phil Zone and the intro jam is a blast and it takes us right into a smoking hot Samson. Following a Must Have Been the Roses we get another replay from the night prior, Estimated this time with what can be described as a “smokey” feeling jam.  He’s Gone is a solid lead into Drums that teases a feel for The Other One. Out of drums, we get a spacey Other One Jam, and then Jerry kicks on the distortion and Phill booms right into The Other One.

We’re going to stop here and just say PRESS PLAY!
