Finally! This movie is a must-see, folks. The Grateful Dead at their trippiest, great close ups of Garcia just going into the "zone" as he rips through ridiculous solo after ridiculous solo. Kreutzmann rules throughout - gotta love the one-drummer era of the Dead!

Too much GD archives rushing out - I need a second job brah!

Be good to have this on another format.So far I just have the VHS and laser disc from the late 70s/early 80s.

DVD is welcome here,especially knowing how they love to add all kinds of shit to DVDs (like the edits that didn't make the original)

Look forward to it.
