Grateful Dead at the Philly Spectrum, Sept. 12, 1990
I must include this one … sorry it’s audio only, no moving video.
This rendition of “Eyes of the World” is perhaps my all-time favorite. Aside from being so freaking impromptu and energetic, it’s timelessness stems from its lack of ‘perfection’ as we would know it.
This is a real gem of a find: From 1972, the Europe Tour, here’s some excerpts from April 4th’s show, with multiple cameras and great audio mixing. Some of the close-up shots are amazing.
Not all of these entries are on this video. See below. Continue reading →
Bob Weir hosted this show from his San Rafael, CA webcasting facility, TRI Studios, on August 3, 2012. The show was streamed live in celebration of Jerry Garcia’s 70th birthday. The star-studded show was uploaded to You Tube in honor of the 17th anniversary of Garcia’s death on August 9, 1995.
Unfortunately, this show has been removed from YouTube …
TRI Studios has offered a DVD of this recording, and as such, it is no longer available in the public domain. Understandable, but disappointing nonetheless.
I’ll keep this post live on this site, in anticipation that TRI may re-release it for public consumption.
The show is long, four-and-a-half hours, but filled with shining moments throughout. This was an amazing performance, by a multitude of talented personalities, all of whom seem to share the gift that Jerry so aptly personified: Music is a Joyous Holy Experience, to be shared and appreciated with the folks immediately around you, and projected into the entire Universe at every moment.
