Our first stop this week is at Alpine Valley on 6/21/85, the start of the Dead’s short but excellent summer tour of 1985, where we have the end of the show featuring Space > Truckin' > Black Peter > Around And Around > Sugar Magnolia, Baby Blue.

Next is the start of the second set, also from Alpine, three years later on 6/19/88, where we haveFoolish Heart > Playing In The Band > Uncle John's Band. This is the first live performance of Foolish Heart.

Lastly this week is the start of the second set from 6/22/91, the Grateful Dead’s first-ever show at Soldier Field in Chicago. From this excellent show, we have Foolish Heart > Looks Like Rain > Crazy Fingers> Dark Star tease > Playing In The Band > Terrapin Station > Jam.

Be sure to join us here next week for more music from the vault.

I attended and taped every Dead show @ alpine valley as well as dozens of other shows including Stevie Ray Vaughn 08.26.1990. 06.22.1991 was the first show dead show I attended without taping since 1979 and the first show of my last tour. We all gotta grow up some time. "Anyone who stops learning is old, whether twenty or eighty. Anyone who keeps learning stays young. The greatest thing you can do is keep your mind young."
