From Chicago's Electric Theater comes this piece that is from the band while at it's most psychedelic. This one features cuts from their first LP, Anthem and Aoxomoxoa and the usual Dead selections by Pigpen. An added attraction is the only known performance of "What's Become Of The Baby?"(to the best of my knowledge) This one is a remarkable show with the Dead in their psychedelic world before beginning the transition to the more lyrical group that would surface on American Beauty and Workingman's Dead. Original Zap Comix artwork by the Legendary Rick Griffin and it serves well with this post as it comes from that "we ate the acid' time frame with it's eyeballs,bones and beetles that seemed to populate his artwork at that time.
