Grateful Dead - Cornell 77 and Veneta 72

Here's a pair of classic Dead shows for your listening pleasure.  If you haven't grabbed them before, now is the time.  First up is the Veneta, OR show from August 27, 1972.  This is one of my favorites and the sound is stellar for the era.

Next I have perhaps the most famous Dead show ever...Cornell 77. Some say it is overrated, which may be true, but this version of Scarlet>Fire is worth the download alone. I guess it holds up so well for so many because it was one of the first pristine soundboards that circulated back in the day.
