It was 18 Years Ago Today......

On May 5-1990, The Grateful Dead played a ragged but right show at Cal State in Calson, California. Folks spotted grooving on the side of the stage that day included Timothy Leary and Terence McKenna.
Perhaps the treats Leary brought the band account for the somewhat ragged show but when the the boys gel, this one just smokes. The setlist alone makes this show a keeper. It taked a few songs before the bands gets together so hang in there. Highlights include a first set "Help>Slip>Franklin's", a great Jerry solo during "Loser", a rocking first set closing "One More Saturday Night", and the entire second set. Enjoy!
