Dick's Picks 3 review

May 1977 is arguably the best month from the year and to many the best month of the Grateful Dead’s career.  Since the third release from the Dick’s Picks series is from that period, the Grateful Dead must recognize this is a special segment of their career too.  At the time of this release Grateful Dead Merchandise did not think the demand was high for three disc releases so this is a not a complete concert, but a two disc compilation. The concert was performed May 22, 1977, in Pembroke Pines, FL. 

Both of the discs from Dick’s Picks Volume 3 are so good it is hard to decide which is better.  As good as the second disc is that is quite a statement, but when you hear the “Sugaree” you may agree. In fact, it is tough to find significantly better versions of any of the songs from disc one.  The “Help on the Way” > “Slipknot” > “Franklins Tower” is a king sized version; it opened the second set. 

The second disc features the highlight of the show, which is a stunning ensemble of some of my favorite songs in a sequence never repeated, “Estimated Prophet” > “Eyes Of The World” > “Wharf Rat” > “Terrapin Station” > “Morning Dew.”  This is truly a gem to be played frequently.
