The latest addition to the ongoing “All The Years Live” video series from the Grateful Dead is available now on the band’s YouTube channel. The new archival release features a performance of “Samson and Delilah” from the Dead’s New Year’s Eve performance at The Winterland in San Francisco, CA on December 31st, 1978.
As Grateful Dead archivist David Lemieux notes in the video’s description, “Tear that old building down they did! From the Closing Of Winterland, the Dead certainly gave their home venue a wonderful, appropriate goodbye, with an all-night show featuring some of their greatest, most-loved songs. The building stood for another seven years before it was finally demolished in 1985.”
