Thoughts On The Dead

Musings on the Most Ridiculous Band I Can't Stop Listening To

Live Dead, Found(?)


Another pic from this mystery show. I do believe the 6/22/68 date from the site; the estimable Dead Essays says this:

A newspaper review: “”Last weekend’s Grateful Dead concert was a smash. Too bad not everyone knew it. The further the Dead got into their music the quicker some people got out to their cars.” [deadlists]

I believe this photo bears out the review: our heroes have assumed, in Mr. Completely’s wonderful phrasing, Jamming Formation with Lonely Keyboardist (Pigpen is off to the left somewhere), and the crowd is sitting down and bored-seeming. Phoenix, Arizona, not getting the Dead in 1968 sounds right as hell.


  1. Yep, everything gels, OTDIDH has been updated appropriately. History in the making right here in river city. This is getting very close to Actual Research.

  2. Now we need pictures of the expressions on the faces of the crowd 28 minutes into The Eleven.
