Not a Deadhead

This film was clearly enjoyed by many in the audience as a nostalgic evening. Laughter and some applause. The music was hypnotic and I could understand why everyone at the original event was danciing, but we found the poor quality of the 1972 film unappealing and left early.

I wish they would do these more often than once a year. Also a good idea would be to offer the DVD/CD packages with a promo code for discount when you buy the ticket. i was not sure i was going to be able to place an order because so many people attempting to after the movie last night. The movie was grate. Sound, video all outstanding. I placed my order for DVC/CD package this morning.

The movie was fantastic a terrific way to celebrate Jerry's birthday. But i didn't have to buy my tickets from fandango and spend an extra $2.50 per ticket.

Classic Dead Show - A Time Capsule

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.)
