Forty three years ago today, The Grateful Dead graced The Ark in Boston, MA with their presence. This classic piece of history provides a clear glimpse into the early years of the band through a fantastic show, both in energy and recording quality. The set includes prominent Dead staples in their earliest forms, including "Morning Dew," "Cryptical Envelopement," "The Other One," "Dark Star," "St. Stephen," and "The Eleven." The progression of these compositions have come a long way and in these early years, the stripped down versions give insight into the humble origins.
