I agree! It was EPIC, one of the best (certainly the longest) Dead show I ever saw. The rainbow (a double, wasn't it?) during "Here Comes Sunshine" was quite the scene. The band was on fire the whole day, just dripping with psychedelic energy. Who'd a thunk they would do 3 FULL sets in good ol' Des Moines? Would sure be great to somehow have quality tapes of this show appear somehow. I taped it on a crappy little Krako 8 track.

I have a copy somewhere as well, although the sound quality is really poor. I would love it if they released it.
