The latest live Grateful Dead video from the band’s recently-launched “All The Years Live” series is now available through the band’s official YouTube page. The new video features “Cassidy” from June 17th, 1991 at East Rutherford, NJ’s Giants Stadium.
As the band’s official archivist David Lemieux explains in the video’s description, “Since 1976, this Weir-Barlow classic was a part of Grateful Dead first sets until 1995. This dynamic, dynamite version is one of the many highlights of this magnificent show. Bruce in particular adds some tremendously tasty nuanced sonic colours to this terrific version.”
This Giants Stadium show is one of only two shows in the Grateful Dead’s archive recorded to 48-track analog tape, providing spectacular and unprecedented audio quality. The lineup for the show featured guitarists Jerry Garcia and Bob Weir, bassist Phil Lesh, drummers Mickey Hart and Bill Kreutzmann along with the dual keyboard configuration of Bruce Hornsby and Vince Welnick.
