Grateful Dead Steal Your Face fractal design 5March 22, 1989
Jerry Garcia, Bob Weir, John Kahn
Giftcenter Pavilion, San Francisco

Deep Elem Blues, Wang Dang Doodle, Dreadful Wind And Rain,
When I Paint My Masterpiece, Bird Song, Easy To Slip

Poster Artists Benefit.
also: Country Joe McDonald, The Dinosaurs, Nick Gravenites and Animal Mind

At just about 35 minutes, this is quite brief but pretty cool. Jerry's acoustic playing is so sweet, and at times he's so meticulous and really getting into it! I'd say John Kahn on bass isn't really needed but he fills in some of the sound nice enough. The truly beautiful interaction, though, is between Jer and Bob.

Hey Zoooma!
Interesting little post. It kind of reminds me of the acoustic set at the Rambler Room in Chicago ('78). Thanks for another interesting and quite enjoyable adventure into GD land!
