There must be something about February and classic Dead shows.  Coming hot on the heels of a few epic nights from 1970 and 1968, this gem from 1973 is a very popular choice for best show of 1973, owing to its wide circulation among even casual collectors. 204 more words

Today in Grateful Dead History: August 30, 1978 - Red Rocks Amphitheater, Morrison, CO

Today’s show is a very interesting performance from Red Rocks in 1978.  As you might know, the Dead already played two shows at Red Rocks back in July, so the return trip only a month later was quite unusual.   1,057 more words
