Next is the end of the show from 9/12/87 at the Capital Center in Landover, MD, where we have Space> Truckin > I Need A Miracle > Morning Dew>Turn On Your Lovelight, One More Saturday Night, Black Muddy River.

And finally this week, another end-of-show segment, this one from 12/10/89 at the Forum in Inglewood, CA: Space> The Wheel > I Need A Miracle > Stella Blue> Good Lovin', Baby Blue.

Be sure to join us here next week for more music from the vault, and a Happy New Year to everyone!

Thank you for the content of this episode.The music they made is underexposed in comparison with their musical legacy during the late 60's and the 70's decade.The 80's had their ups and downs ( understatement...haha.. ) and it is noticeable in their music , but hey ; it's the Grateful Dead.
