The Grateful Dead achieved perfection in May 1977 during a performance on a college campus in upstate New York. That night the circus rolled into Ithaca, NY to play Barton Hall at Cornell University.
Later that year on their fall tour, the Grateful Dead made another stopover at an upstate New York college... November 1977, the psychedelic circus touched down in Hamilton, NY to play a gig on the campus of Colgate University. The Dead were en fuego from the get go. No need to wait until the second set warm up because the were ripping from the Bertha first-set opener. First set also included a killer Brown-Eyed Women. Dead historians love this show because of the Dupree's Diamond Blues bustout.
