Great audio recording!

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...

There was a problem at the theater: we could see the movie but the sound track was Bruce Springsteen! After 30 minutes the problem was still not solved. The manager was nice though - we got a free movie pass and refunds.

If you care anything about the music and the legend of the Grateful Dead, you absolutely don't want to miss this film. This is classic Dead, at the absolute height of their powers, on an incredible day. Transcendent and beautiful... a wonderful time capsule.

Happy Birthday Jerry G. !!!!

Coming from a longtime Dead Head - but one that didn't get to experience the early days (my 1st show was in 1979) - this movie was very cool! With that said - nothing is like a Grateful Dead concert, even a movie about one. The obvious missing piece was the experience of being there.. we'd lovingly call it the freak show, the before-during-and after experience of people from all walks of life melting into One Humanity. The movie did a great job of showing the experience & getting people to share their experience too. It made me want to jump into the screen and be part of it all. Thank You to everyone involved in producing and promoting the event. What a great way to celebrate Jerry's Birthday!!! Bark Like a Dog! Beemdog
