Summer's Here and the Time is Right!

Ok not exactly summer yet, but the warm temperatures in Wisconsin have gotten me into a Grateful Dead mood of late.

One of the best shows from an over-looked touring year, October 17, 1983 is a serious gem from Lake Placid, NY. A smoker from start to finish; the highlights include some epic Jerry, sleighing lengthy versions of "Sugaree", "Bird Song", and the always awesome "Terrapin Station". A sloppy encore of The Beatles "Revolution" is just icing on the cake. As a longtime listener and collector, this is honestly one of the greatest shows in their amazing 30 year history.

Crank it up nice and loud!!
