Today In Grateful Dead History

It’s that time again to dust off the ol’ Grateful Dead history books. Class, please turn your books to 19 years ago for a mid-summer’s meltdown at the University of Oregon in 1990. Only 1 month before Brent Mydland’s death, this was one of the keyboardist’s final shows with the band and his playing still comes through crisp and clear. Jerry’s voice may be a bit strained during the show but his playing is on point and this show really has some great moments – it’ll crawl up and down your sleeve and leave a smile on your face when it’s over, enjoy!
