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...

Fewer Peripherals, More Music!

By peterinmiami
Written August 04, 2013
Here's a concert movie in serious need of editing: eliminate the boring kaleidoscopic ads for the Dead's favorite tie-dye artist; trim the backstory about the Creamery; even--can I actually be saying it?--cut the number of naked dancers in the crowd (at least the unattractive ones!); and just give us more of the Dead's wonderful music! Were these handful of songs--excellent as they are--the only ones recorded, or recorded well? Seems hard to believe. You can see what the filmmakers were going for, an overview of the Big Picture, but the music--the reason we're paying to see the movie--arrives too late and departs too soon. A bit of a wasted (no pun intended) opportunity here.

I could see it but not hear it!

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.

Wonderful movie, bad theater experience

The movie started 45 minutes late because the theater and/or distributor could not get their acts together on the technology for this kind of presentation. But the concert film was wonderful. Great sound and the only visual record I know of that shows the Dead at their peak with such attention to the important performance elements--hands on guitars, singers, etc.

Sunshine Daydream

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
