What People are Saying About This
"Peter Conners draws on an exceptionally wide range of sources—musicians, sound engineers, ticket takers, tapers, groundlings, record executives, archivists, journalists, and historians—not to argue that the Barton Hall event was the best Grateful Dead concert ever, but rather to show how it encapsulated the Dead's unique project and its extraordinary reception. By situating this remarkable concert in its place and time, Conners also demonstrates why the Dead's project continues to matter today. Cornell '77 will show aficionados and casual readers alike how the Ithacan part stands for the Dionysian whole."
"For years, fans and critics have raved about the Grateful Dead's concert at Cornell's Barton Hall on May 8, 1977. Yet for all of the accolades, this celebrated show has never been fully explored and explained— until now. Peter Conners tells the story of this remarkable event with zeal and precision, teasing out the magic from the myth and showing how this night became a legend."
