The Grateful Dead, live at Buffalo Memorial Auditorium, May 9, 1977. Buffalo, NY.
Most folks tout the infamous Cornell show from the previous night as the highlight of the Grateful Dead's May 1977 stretch, but the Buffalo show is no slouch. Starting off the night with a killer Help/Slip/Franks, the band rolls on through a smooth Cassidy and a slough of other favs from '77. The Comes a Time is a definite highlight of the show; it's a shame this tune didn't get more play time on this tour. A nice UJB to cap off the night.
