"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.
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!
