The latest live video from the Grateful Dead‘s recently-launched “All The Years Live” series is now available through the band’s official YouTube page. The new archive release highlights JerryGarcia/RobertHunter classic “Stagger Lee” from Buckeye Lake in Thornville, Ohio on July 1st, 1992.
As Grateful Dead archivist David Lemieux explains in the video’s description:
Debuting in 1978, Stagger Lee was a reworked traditional story, with Hunter creating a visual masterpiece with his words. In the repertoire 1978-1979, and 1985-1995 (with a few versions in 1982), this song was a thrilling addition to the first sets of many Dead shows. This version is from the final show of the Summer Tour of 1992, after which the Dead took one of their longest breaks since the 1974-1976 hiatus, going five months without a show.
