Dick's Picks, Vol. 22: Kings Beach Bowl, Kings Beach Lake Tahoe, CA 2/23-2/24/68

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Fred Thomas
One of the wilder chapters of the endless Grateful Dead concert archive series Dick's Picks, Vol. 22 captures some early and comparatively rough-around-the-edges live Dead material from early 1968.
