Saturday Dead: Hollywood 8.6.71


Words By J-man

When choosing a show for our Saturday Dead, sometimes there is digging involved, sometimes the show falls right into my lap. This show from "Today in Grateful Dead History" was an easy pick.

Coming at a crucial time in the career of the Dead, this gem from Hollywood on August 6, 1971 is pure fire...

Grateful Dead Live at Hollywood Palladium on August 6, 1971.



From the opening selection of "Bertha", the set continues through some of the Dead's finest material. "Playing in The Band", "Cumberland Blues", "Casey Jones", "St. Stephan", Truckin'", "Deal" & "Sugar Magnolia" are clear show highlights, but be sure not to neglect the rest of the tracks. This is one of those "listen all of the way through" shows...

Enjoy!
