1980-01-13 Cambodian Refugee Benefit - Oakland, CA

January 29, 2017

Hiya Folks!

"Well Hello There - my, it's been a long long time..."

Good to be back after a long absence!

2017 is off to an inauspicious start here in the good ol' USofA - so what better way to get going than with some Good Ol' Grateful Dead!

This is a unique performace in that it was a multi-act bill put together by Joan Baez to benefit refugees from Cambodia fleeing from the Khmer Rouge/Vietnamese violence happening there.

The band plays a truncated show, which is played here in its entirety, plus 'Amazing Grace' led by Joan Baez and with members of the other groups on the bill to close things out.

The Show:

1/13/80 Oakland Coliseum Arena - Oakland, CA 

Jack Straw->Franklin's Tower, Minglewood Blues, Tennessee Jed->Looks Like Rain->Don't Ease Me In, Playin' in the Band->Drums->Not Fade Away->Sugar Magnolia, U.S. Blues, Amazing Grace

Jack Straw starts off a little rough technically and otherwise - but they pull it together soon enough!

Thanks to all for listening - time to get back Truckin' on!
