Grateful Dead Hour no. 1670
Week of September 21, 2020
First of four featuring the complete unreleased soundboard recording of 6/8/92 in Richfield, Ohio.
This episode also includes excerpts from a rehearsal that took place in San Francisco just before the Dead returned to touring in 1976 following their 20-month hiatus. "Cassidy" had been played by the Dead in public exactly once before, on March 23, 1974, so we hear them working up the arrangement that they would use for the rest of the band's history. "Attics of My Life" was rehearsed in '76, but did not actually return to the Dead's active repertoire until 1989! "Lazy Lightning-> Supplication" came from Bobby's work with Kingfish during the hiatus; the studio recording can be found on Kingfish.

Vince shines here. All the hot seat players were unique and talented in their own way. Vince paid his dues and learned to listen, which he does so well in this performance. The rehearsal tapes are revealing and exquisite in their clarity. A great find, and wonderful to hear. Thanks again, Mr. Gans!
Agree with the comment on Vince.
Also , a particularly moving version of So Many Roads at the end from 6/8/92
