Grateful Dead Hour by David Gans

Week of October 21, 1996

The Grateful Dead took 20 months off from live performing, from October 1974 to June 1976. In that time they completed the Grateufl Dead Movie, worked on solo projects, and collaborated in Bob Weir's studio on the landmark studio album Blues for Allah. They played fur shows in San Francisco in 1975: the SNACK benefit at Kezar Stadium in March; the Bob Fried Memorial Boogie (billed as "Jerry Garcia and Friends" in June; the album release party at the Great American Music Hall on August 13; and a free concert in Golden Gate Park with the Jefferson Starship on September 28. Each of these performances combined compelling new works and plenty of old favorites.

Enjoy!
