I’ve never seen more of Precarious Lee’s handiwork in one place. This stage setup (from the Dead’s first Giants Stadium show on 9/2/78) goes beyond a lack of interest in the visual aesthetic. This was a deliberate decision.

“How raggedy-assed can it possibly look?” the Dead said.

And the Greatest Roadie of All Time, Precarious Lee, answered, “Gimme an hour.”
