Great footage of the boys jammin', and super mix, sounds really good. Really vintage "Rider", "Dark Star", and incredible "Sing Me Back Home". I want the DVD! Or more showings.....

Great movie with the footage they had to work with!

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.

A vetran of thirty some-odd shows, but wishing it was 300! This was a great exercise in Greatful Dead fare. If you're expecting a full concert first-to-last-note played, this it is not. There's plenty of playing footage, but the peripheral footage was perfect for setting the mood and giving a great glimps of exactly what it was all about "back in the day. In "72" I was 19 and if you were a Dead Head, this was the scene that you would constantly strive to be into and emulate, believe me!
The band only being human, were capable of playing stellar shows as well as total bombs, and everything in between. The majority of shows were in fact great. This one is heading into the stellar range! To wit, if Jerry was in the zone and the rest merrily followed, great things would happen. For me , when Jerry takes off into the DARK STAR, he leaves nothing on the table! If you ever wanted to see what is produced while being in the ZONE, just spend the time viewing that one song!

Had a great time; there is still nothing like a Grateful Dead show! Terrific back story on this concert...would have liked to hear more music from that day, maybe a few less crowd shots. Met old and new friends at the theater, the sound was GREAT!
