Grateful Dead – Portland, ME – 4/01/85

Check this straight fire Dead show from spring of 85′. This AUD recording really captures the energy of the show and preserves it in its true form. Highlights include one of the best Rooster’s I’ve ever heard, a surprisingly tasty Bird Song, a beautiful Looks Like Rain, and a smokin’ Other One. Jerry’s guitar playing is in the zone – totally honed in, and Bobby’s rhythm playing in this show is some of the best I’ve heard from the man.
