Classic Dead Show - A Time Capsule

By VMI70
Written August 03, 2013
The production quality of the video may be 1972, but the quality of the music and the sound is 2013. Thought the sound was one of the best of any Dead show I have seen either in the theater or on DVD (and I have all the commercially available DVDs). The show itself is vintage Dead and one of their best. Only possible shortcoming was that it seems the site did not have enough lighting to catch the later songs in the show, but it was 1972, a charity event and not a commercial venue which would have had better lighting. A long Dark Star (if you like that, if you don't you have a chance to hit the head or the concession stand). Must see if you are a Dead fan, no matter how old you are. If you are old enough (like me) it is nostalgic, if you are younger you get to see them at what some think was their best period. (Have to wonder how many of the Deadheads there catching rays are now seeing their dermatologists to have lesions removed, we did not use sunblock back then.)

Wow....I had a great time watching this movie. The sound was truly amazing and the being able to see the band so young was was a treat. I hope to make next years meet and greet....even if i have to drive all the way to Bozeman for it. Happy Birthday Jerry.

The films audio recording was great not a complete concert like I thought it would be. was a little disappointing that is was not a complete concert, could have done with out the naked man standing behind Jerry about 90 percent of the time you saw Jerry on the screen! But really it just mad you laff! I did enjoy the movie, i just expected more, I walked away thinking... that's it?? The Best Grateful Dead Movie was the first one from Winterland hands down IMOP.. All in all it was good but far from great, video wise really enjoyed the tapestry images, could have use more of that then some of the video that you could not even see...
