Dick's Picks 10 review

Dick’s Picks Volume 10 is most of a Grateful Dead concert performance that took place at the Winterland Arena in San Francisco, CA on December 29, 1977.  Two songs were eliminated from the second set, “Maybe it was the Roses” and “Sunrise” that fell between “Good Lovin’" and “Playing in the Band.” The benefit of eliminating those two songs is that it made enough space to include outstanding filler from the next evening.

Dick’s Picks Volume 10 first disc includes the entire opening set. It is great with no weak moments. In particular, the “Jack Straw” opener is superb and hits on all cylinders in the instrumental. In addition, the several Garcia ballads such as “They Love Each Other” and “Loser” can be characterized as melodically beautiful.  In 1977 “Sugaree” was sure played well and the one on Dick’s Picks Volume 10 was made to be listened to often. The four Bob Weir songs are strongly displayed, even the over played “New Minglewood Blues” is a keeper. 

Dick’s Picks Volume 10’s second disc begins set 2 of the concert, which is famous for the return of their classic “China Cat Sunflower” > “I Know You Rider.” It hadn’t been performed since their retirement in 1974, and that was a great moment of the set.  Like set one, it is solid from start to finish.

The third disc begins with the two encores from the featured show. After, the final 45 minutes includes the best segment from the next evening. The bonus tracks are spectacular and that is an understatement! The “Estimated Prophet” is everything one could ask for, and Jerry counters with a just as pleasing “Eyes of the World.” I generally prefer the early “St. Stephen’s” but this one makes me reconsider. 

Dick’s Picks Volume 10 is a great!  I really love the decision to eliminate two short songs from December 29 enabling enough space to include the filler.  Dick’s Picks Volume 10 easily receives an A. by Barry Small ©
