Mention the numbers 5, 8, 77 to any Dead Head and one thing comes to mind immediately: Barton Hall, Cornell University, Ithaca New York from May 8, 1977, arguably, the Grateful Dead's most famous concert.
It was a Spring Day in the beautiful town of Ithaca, a town flowing with beautiful waterfalls and gorges, and yet as concert attendees left this show a blizzard was commencing. Perhaps it was the Universe's way of marking the special event that went down.
The event has been marked by other symbols and facsimiles as well: first, the legendary "Betty Board," a crispy recording by Grateful Dead sound crew member, Betty Cantor-Jackson, that circulated far and wide among tape traders. 30 years later, the mayor of Ithaca proclaimed May 8 as "Grateful Dead Day." In 2012, the United States Library of Congress admitted Betty's Board recording of this Epic Show into a national registry of significant audio recordings from American culture.
The Cornell game environments have been beautifully rendered by Dead Head artist, Una Toibin - playing is like running through a living painting.
