Show #5 in the Dead through the years project — one show for every year, 1966-1995. Though the band started regularly playing acoustic sets in 1970, this one is all electric. Pretty loose, probably due to the guerilla aspect of the gig, but awesome nonetheless. Definitely a pleasing raw thing happening to the guitar sound here.
Choice cut: The closing “Not Fade Away” is 12 minutes of gnarliness. I kind of chortled when an Archive.org commenter compared it to the MC5 and early Ash Ra Temple, but whaddaya know, he’s totally right!
