GRATEFUL DEAD - Dave's Picks Vol.1 - Live At Mosque, Richmond, VA, May 25, 1977 (2012)
Dave's Picks Volume 1 is a three-CD live album by the rock band the Grateful Dead. It was recorded on May 25, 1977, at the Mosque in Richmond, Virginia, and contains the complete concert from that date. It was released on February 1, 2012. The album is the first in the Dave's Picks series of Grateful Dead archival releases, the successor to the Road Trips series. It is a limited edition of 12,000 individually numbered copies. The cover art, by Scott McDougall, depicts the hands of two skeletons in outer space, fighting with lightsabers. This is a reference to the film Star Wars, which was released the same date that the concert was recorded.
The song list from 5/25/77 might not reveal much out of the ordinary (though it's great selection of tunes), but the playing is definitely extraordinary. The first set contains outstanding versions of favorites such as "Mississippi Half-Step," "Jack Straw," "Cassidy" and "Lazy Lightning" > "Supplication." And the second set is primo-grade '77 from start to finish. The buoyant "Scarlet Begonias" > "Fire on the Mountain" that kicks things off sets the tone, but then the rest of the set is a deftly played medley starting with "Estimated" and moving into "He's Gone," a primal drum workout from Mickey and Bill, a heart-pounding version of "The Other One" that's split by "Wharf Rat" (the only time those songs were played in that sequence), a joyful "Wheel," and then a double-dose of Chuck Berry to bring it all back to rock 'n' roll basics. Talk about a thrill ride! The three-disc Dave's Picks, Volume One was mastered to HDCD specs by Jeffrey Norman, includes a colorful booklet with photos and a lively historical essay, and comes in a digipak made of 100% recycled and PCW materials. - amazon.com
