Dick’s Picks Vol. 15 – 09/03/77, Engishtown, NJ

In this week’s episode we explore Dick’s Picks Vol. 15, from Raceway Park in Englishtown, NJ on September 3, 1977. One of the biggest Dead shows of all time, we dive back into the halcyon year of 1977, hearing the band play a greatest hits type of show following their cancelled Summer Tour after Mickey’s car accident. Highlighted by tight playing and a killer setlist, it’s one of the most popular Dick’s Picks ever released. 

Disc One is highlighted by a brilliant “Mississippi Half-Step Uptown Toodeloo” and a gorgeous “Friend Of The Devil.” On Disc Two “Bertha” and “Eyes Of The World highlight the first half of the second set,” while on Disc Three “He’s Gone” fades into a unique jam before easing into a stunning take on “Not Fade Away.” A jam that wouldn’t have felt out of place in 1970, it hears The Dead exploring the darker terrain that fit the early 1970’s more than the Disco era. It’s a great overall snippet of The Dead at another peak period just passed their first hiatus.
