Week of September 8, 1997
By request, a collection of Grateful Dead performances of Bob Dylan songs. A couple of years later, I was invited to produced a CD along these lines. Postcards of the Hanging, released in 2002, used different versions.
The next week's show, GDH 469, which includes more Dylan covers, was posted on March 23, 2011.
