Grateful Dead Spring 81

#2216 3 years, 1 month ago
What a monster of a tour! Love much of the May run, but this show from 3-9-81 is fantastic as well. A great Glassberg AUD and recommended download! Any thoughts or favorites from this era?

Here's a link to the 3-9-81 Glassberg Aud, amazing Althea

That's a real nice show. Unfortunately I missed it. By 6 months. My first was sept. 81. It was a great year, all around.
I can't come down, it's plain to see.
I can't come down, I've been set free.

Hartford Civic Center 3/14 is top 5 for me all time. This was one of the best years for the band not sure why it is not given more attention

Early '81 JGB was pretty kickass, too. Definitely a good time to be a deadhead.

and yes '81 was a great year
