The seating was very uncomfortable and the movie actually stopped 20 mins in and they had to restart it, so people saw same movie twice for part. The sound could have been louder and the lighting could have been turned off faster. Otherwise movie was really good.

A Trip In Time

As a Dead Head this was a step back in time for me! I have seen the Dead at Deer Creek and watching this film brought me back to that moment even thought I saw them in 1995 it was much the same the crowds coming through the fields and enjoying each others company. Of course the day turned ugly with cops attacking the crowds but in the beginning it was a lot like this movie. I danced and just listened to the music and it took me back to what a show was like. I am so glad they made this movie happen because it gave others who have never been to a show a glimpse of what we Dead Heads understand to the core. That we all are one and the band is the medium to that. I hope everyone who loves this band gets out to see it. It is a classic and as usual the band and crowd never let me down....

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.
