The Dead at their best.

Jerry was in the zone. Bob Weir doesn't get enough credit for his guitar playing. Check out the interplay between them to start China Cat Sunflower. This is the closest thing we're ever going to get to seeing them live. The theater was crowded with tye - dyes. I first saw the Dead in 1978. Saw them about 10 or 15 times live plus Jerry Garcia Band, Bobby & the Midnites, and Weir and Wasserman. Not much for a true dead head. However the Dead and Dylan make up 1/3 to 1/2 of my music listening forever. I'm well versed. And, I am also happy to say, my 16 year old daughter enjoyed the movie too. She could not believe how long Dark Star went on even though I warned her about the length of songs. Give us more. How about one of the View from the Vault videos. I'll won't miss any of them. chardio (from Fennario)

The story of how the Grateful Dead teamed up with Kesey and the Merry Pranskters to put on a benefit concert to try to save a local creamery business. AMAZING gootage of the band...probably the best I've ever seen and a sick show.

Edited, But Still Great

I've owned the bootleg of the movie for years, and though I've never considered it perfect, I've always cherished it as an accurate document of the Dead experience in 1972, a year I didn't get to see them. Committed, videogeek Deadheads have worked on this video for years to make it look better from the old VHS copies available back when Jerry was still alive, but it's never looked amazing. This transfer looked as good as it can with current technology thanks to the expensive restoration job they did. The music sounds amazing on the new version, but it's not all there. The edits are not necessarily better, but it does make it a much shorter movie to digest. If you're a serious Head, you need to own this when it becomes available.
