Way Back

Let’s go way back in time for the earliest Dead recording yet to be seen here on Welcome To Now – The Grateful Dead in their infancy at the Filmore in San Fran in the summer of 66′. This is pure, early Dead, still filled with the influences of Bluegrass, Jug Music, and Americana. These influences would later be blended into the ether with Rock and Roll, Psychedelia, Classic Rock, and 80’s short shorts. This  summer set consists of mostly early covers and traditional numbers only featuring one Dead original, ‘Cream Puff War’. While part of Boss Man and Dancin’ are cut, this is a pristine recording – both the download and the stream. Groovy.
