Three Capitol Nights In New Jersey, April 25 26 27, 1977


Here what happens when you play in 3,200 seat venue when you are the greatest band in the world, you get very underestimated shows. Well, also we have our pick of some fine Spring 1977 Dead, these shows sometimes get lost in the shuffle. Fortunately Dave picked the first night, April 25, as the 30 Trips 1977 representative and John Scher et al choose to videotape most of the later two nights.

Have fun getting lost with three more beautiful takes from late April 1977, the 5th, 6th and 7th shows of the year with plenty of Scar Fires, Terrapins, Prophets and a Dew. May the Music Never Stop.
30 Trips Review of April 25 makes clear another underestimated Spring 77 show
Exerpt from Jesse Jarnow's great Heads book; hmmm I can tell a similar story from the Palldium involving Jerry Moore and his friend in a few days

Thanks to Dead Relix (from my personal copy)
