On May 8, 1977, the Grateful Dead performed at Cornell University’s Barton Hall.
The bootleg recording of this show was considered so significant that it was added to the Library of Congress’ National Recording Registry in 2011.
To celebrate the 40th anniversary of the show, Rhino will release the Barton Hall concert separately in multiple formats on May 5. Cornell 5/8/77 will be available as a three-CD set, a limited edition five-LP set (limited to 7,700 copies), as well as digital download and streaming.
