"Good time music by good time people. says it all... The incredible Grateful Dead on this date in 1972

+Steve Watkins​ You right Steve it was after the WOS so 76 makes more sense to me. Hell it was a long time ago. Thank God for ticket stubs and set lists, and so foggy thought process...

Say no more. Grateful Dead at the Yale Bowl on July 31, 1971. Big. Bold. Electrified. Thrilling.

The Grateful Dead don't come much bigger or better than they did on this date in the Summer of 1973!

+Marsha Kay LOL! Great minds... Yes, I just saw your post about the WOS and we must be channeling something here. '74 was a stellar year for us fans even if the band was having its struggles behind the scenes. Who knows where they might have taken things if it hadn't become so overwhelming. Well, actually, I guess we do know where they ended up taking things, but still...

Grateful Dead way way back on July 16, 1966 at the Fillmore Auditorium. Amazing

Enjoying the found "Betty tapes" from July 1978 and I think the Scarlet-Fire from July 7th at Red Rocks might just be the best version ever. Jerry is great, as usual but Bobby is truly amazing throughout. Blown away by their nuanced yet energetic playing. Wow!
