Great flick great music. I really loved seeing the guys just doing what they do best. And I am not just blowing smoke atcha because it has one of my favorite Birdsongs ever played but because it's worth the trip...
Not one for the kiddies though...

It was 105 degrees that day and the band was in amazing form ! The movie is very well done love the animation. Garcia was tremendous ! You have to see this ! It will bow you away, it was a benefit to save the Kesey family creamery ! In the fields of Oregon, they cut done trees to make the towers, it was hippydom at its best. Just Freaking Grateful to have seen it !

I am the mother of two deadheads and the fiancee of another one. I enjoyed listening to the music and watching the audience react and how they danced to the melodies. I was especially grateful to see the young Jerry and Bobby perform. It was more meaningful to me since I saw Bobby yesterday on his show and was able to compare Bobby, the older man, to Bobby, the young man. Sallyk

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.)

The Grateful Dead Meet Up: Sunshine Daydream is a dizzying journey into a long ago time that is represented by sparse nudity, subtle drug consumption, and esoteric Dead tunes comprised of Jazz notes, Blues riffs, Rock and Roll elements, and Country twangs. Is this event for everyone? The fact that the theater was virtually empty is a conservative answer. However, as a Social consideration of the counter culture of 1972 Oregon, Sunshine Daydream was perfect.
