And that fine place being... What makes it so awesome... As this ultimately reflects their take on the G. Music, History, the Scene, the Fans!
And the Sign of the Times!!! Keep in mind that this was really one of the great!Releases for sale by the Band - prior to their 20-Years So Far! So, in a lot of ways... This was both a reflection on the Good Times of Past, the Good Times of Present...
Times in store for the future - just right around the corner! This Program kicks off with a little " Memorial " to Pigpen! To whom, for all reasons obvious... The Band was so Grateful!Then, it's time for tons & tons of History, Info, Fun Facts & etc. Provided by Paul Krassner & Dennis McNally! The part that I really! Love - the Deadheads & their T-Shirt Photos! As we all know & love how this component was always! Such a key & fun! Part of the scene, and the Dead Fan lifestyle! It's just so-'80's! Which, at least to me... Indeed a sign of the times, and the G. There are some photos of the Artistic & Classic! As most all of us have sent lots of that - in one form or another to either the G. And, amazingly - it's pretty complete too, as the Dead only released a couple Studio-Albums after this time! Tons of all of that G. Art that we all Love! & Full-on Biography for every single present Band Member!!!!!! And, these are just Awesome! Personally, I think it's a two-way tie between the Brent Photo!

Write-up on the Band's Equipment-ology! A whole page of Photos!And last, but not least... A few fantastic write-ups - " Grateful Dead In Myth And Legend " by Bob Petersen & Alan Trist - " Dilbert and the Plumber " by Robert Hunter! - and " An Aged Deadhead " by Milton Mayer.

The simple fact is, This-One! To be in the Bookshelf of any Grateful Dead Fan, as it is that well done.
