    Grateful Dead Hour no. 287

    Week of March 21, 1994

    Second of two featuring most of the first set of 2/24/74 at Winterland, a month before the official debut of the "Wall of Sound" PA system.

    Due to an error on my part, two songs are repeated from the previous week!

    Also featured are some wonderful rehearsals that took place in San Francisco on May 28, 1976, a few days before the band returned to touring after a 20-month hiatus. Interestingly, although it was rehearsed before the comeback, "Attics of My Life" was not played on the tour. (It was played 18 times in 1970, once in 1971, and twice in 1972, and then it disappeared for many years.) "Attics" turned up again in the fall of 1989 and remained in the active repertoire for the rest of the band's history.

    The complete performance of 2/24/74 was released in 2014 as Dave's Picks vol. 13.

    Enjoy!
