Movie was awesome. Enjoyed every moment. It really showed me what that time in the bands history was like. The movie showed the reality of the time and didn't censor the truth . The music was great and the concert footage was real as can be. can't wait till the next one

The closest anyone who's never been to a Grateful Dead show will ever get. And some very good background material, before the concert portion, to show what a great bunch of guys they really were and still are. The setting is a benefit concert to save Springfield Creamery in Eugene, Oregon, struggling to survive in 1972. The Dead decided to throw a benefit concert to raise money for them. In spite of over 20,000 in attendance, so many had not paid that they didn't raise the required amount. Was this the end of Springfield Creamery? Heck no, the Dead wrote them a check for the balance, and 31 years later, they're still in business. That is the background info. After the documentary portion at the beginning, there's plenty of great Grateful Dead music, and crowd shots complete with plenty of stark naked hippies. Anyway, the music is top-notch, and the closest thing I would call true "Jazz-Rock", as their jams in the tunes just take you on a musical journey along with them. Fun!

I didn't expect the documentary part; I was under the impression this was the full concert.
Also, I thought the vocals sounded great, but the background noise of the crowd was not present, which made it less special. Overall, I would NOT hesitate to see any future Grateful Dead Movie.
