Rock's longest, strangest trip, the Grateful Dead were the psychedelic era's most beloved musical ambassadors as well as its most enduring survivors, spreading their message of peace, love, and mind-expansion across the globe throughout the better part of three decades. The object of adoration for popular music's most fervent and celebrated fan following -- the Deadheads, their ... Read more in Amazon's Grateful Dead Store

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome! Awesome! Awesome! 8 Dec 2010
By Puffany
Format:Audio CD
1977 was a magnificent Grateful Dead year live-wise. I'd go as far as saying it was 'the' year of the most consistently great shows by the boys - a personal viewpoint of course.
Be warned - the energy levels are high on this night. I won't go through every track but this particular volume from the great Dick's Picks series is one of my very favorites. And here's why:

The clarity of the recording is very good. The balance between the instruments and vocals is much better than many GD shows.
Disc 1: The guys are switched on from the very start with a nice rockin' Promised Land. Bobby fluffs the lyrics for a moment but it doesn't make a difference as they settle into a fine opening.
Me & My Uncle has always been amongst my favorite cover tunes they did, and this version is as good as any from '77.
This slowed down version of Friend of the Devil works brilliantly. It's always a risk that you may lose the feel of a song when it's changed or slowed down - especially after the original version was a 'hit' amongst fans - no problem evident here.
I mentioned energy before - you'll find it a-plenty on this rampant version of The Music Never Stopped, which features a brilliant jam with Jerry on fire. I haven't heard this track sound better....ever!
Disc 2 is my equal favorite `disc 2' of the whole series.
It starts off with a classic Bertha which segues perfectly into a joyous Good Lovin' - a jump in tempo from medium pace to party-mad.
Loser has Jerry providing some heartfelt vocals and well-executed chipped guitar notes.
Estimated Prophet is performed with amazing cohesion & ease for a freshly recorded track - you can really tell Bob is enjoying it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dick's Picks Vol. 15 is one of the best, if not the best 15 Sep 2002
By D. Bowers - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I am quit confused by the reviews posted about this record. It's one of the best live grateful dead recordings to ever be released. I own pretty much everything the dead have put out and this is in the top three of anything recorded and released to the public. This is in the same catagory as dick's volumes 4 and 8 as being the holy grails of live recordings. They have very rarley reached the olympic heights of this caliber of live performances. This is something special which should be cherished. I would recommend this to old salty dead fans and any one who is testing the waters as far as purchasing dead recordings. This is the tightest playing I think I have ever heard from the dead. This is a MUST!!! get album. If I had to own only five dead albums this album would be my first choice, followed by Dick's picks vol. four and eight, American Beauty, Working Mans Dead, and Live/Dead. That's it, thats all you need. If you get these you are good to go. Ok throw in Europe 72 for good measure. And maybe the box set So Many Roads. This will give you a taste of peak performances.

5.0 out of 5 stars Super Fantastic 5 July 2005
By Kenneth M. Goodman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
For me, the key to enjoying Dick's Picks is to discover those

tracks which you consider the "definitive" version of songs...

and #15 is nicely loaded with soaring beauty. Everybody knows

(or should) that Jerry was/is an angel...when he plays, an

angel is playing. Anyway, I've now learned to separate Dick's

Picks selections into two categories: JAMS (where Jerry solos

with staggering beauty (no vocals) and SONGS (with vocals). So...

Dick's Picks #15 falls mainly under the Songs category. The first

CD is the best because of 4 tracks: They Love Eachother; Half Step

Mississippi Uptown; Peggy-O; and The Music Never Stopped....all

definitive versions. One bit of advice regarding The Music Never

Stopped: if you're a bit turned off by the vocal, you know, Bob

Weir singing, "Come on children clap your hands, etc." don't let

that cause you to skip the song. Once you get through

Weir's vocals...JERRY's SOLO IS GRRRRRREAT!!!!! Peggy-O is

perhaps the most beautiful ballad ever recorded.....Half Step

Mississippi Updown is nothing short of miraculous. And They Love Eachother is a great place to begin.

On CD 2: LOSER contains a relatively short guitar solo that is

absolutely staggering in its beauty. CD 3 has a very very very

good extended Not Fade Away. Ohhhh by the way, if you're wondering which Dick's Picks has the best extended pure non-vocal JAMS.........check out #12!!!!!!!!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars How About "Loser?'' 31 May 2004
By Dave Goldberg - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I've got little to add to what's already been written _ in my opinion, this is the best of the 31 Dick's Picks issued so far (and I have about 25 of them).
But I find it interesting that no one has mentioned the Disk 2 version of "Loser,'' one of a half-dozen songs in this concert that are the best live versions I've heard from the dead _ Half-Step, Music Never Stopped, Peggy O, He's Gone among others.
I was at the home of friend who has always disparaged the Dead and slipped the disk onto his very expensive sound system. When he heard the guitar solo on "Loser,'' he flipped. "Is that Garcia?'' he asked. "Yup,'' I replied. "That's the best guitar I've ever heard.''
Me too. I've heard a lot of other versions of the song, including a real bad one on the new Jerry Box Set. I've never heard anything to equal that. In fact, like my friend, I've never heard ANY 45-second guitar solo to equal it.

5.0 out of 5 stars EASILY ONE OF THE BEST OF A GREAT SERIES! LISTEN 16 Feb 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is a great CD! Until I listened to this I would have argued forever that the best years for the Grateful Dead were 1972-1974 and that by 1977 they were good but not great- WRONG! They were awesome in 1977 and this CD is proof positive! For one thing, I like almost every song on here where with earlier sets I have listened to I will love a few songs but not care too much about many others. The first CD is solidly mixed with great tunes (rare to me) with PEGGY-O probably being my favorite because it is such a lovely but sad song. CD 2 is livley throughout with EYES OF THE WORLD dominating. Even though there are longer EYES out there, this version sores and leaves me feeling quite satisfied! CD 3 is a real mindlower! NOT FADE AWAY is draining but worth the effort with a spectacular rocking-out performance. Whoever said these guys can't jam will feel foolish after listening to this twenty minutes of great rock! TRUCKIN' is played with much gusto and then, the final song TERAPIN STATION
appropriately ends the surprisingly (to me) excellent set. If I had been in the audience I think I would have felt like an ocean wave had crept up on me and rushed over my head. Okay, that makes no sense, but I want to emphasize that this is a fun CD and worth listening to.
